Like any child given the opportunity, I was madly in love with rock candy.
Uh, d’uh, Julia. What’s not to love? It’s sugar on a stick.
Beyond that, I adored how it looked. The jagged edges, the translucency, the sparkle… It was like the geode I had in my room, except I could eat it. That’s a magical combination.
As a bill-paying adult who would do practically anything to avoid seeing the dentist, my rock candy days have slowed down tremendously. Thankfully, the gemstone jewelry trend is helping me get my fix.
St. Louis mainstay paperdolls boutique sent over a few of its spring favorites: stacked gemstone wire bracelets and necklaces. (Let’s be honest — it’s a lot of people’s favorite accessory this year… and last year… and probably next year…) Good news for you, budget-loving babes: PD’s beautiful ‘BB’ bracelets are buy two get one free this month at all three of paperdolls boutique’s STL-area locations. When it comes to arm parties, less is just… less. Pile on more, and grab ’em on sale.
Styling tip: Let the stones shine. Pair these pieces with basics — like this chambray boyfriend shirt and denim cut offs — and great shoes.
