Celeb Style: Sex & The City Inspired Horseshoe Necklace

My main weakness when it comes to fashion has always been jewelry. For the most part I buy tons of bangles and sterling silver rings but  there’s not any particular type of jewelry that I look for when I shop  – I just buy!   To say I have a rather large collection of jewelry is a understatement and my jewelry stands display years of collecting.  While I don’t favor a particular style when accessorizing I do have a tendency to like pieces that have meaning. From a 30’s vintage Bakelite piece that I inherited from my mother in law or spiritual pieces that stem from different religions, to a simple strand of  beads my mood dictates the choice. Often you will find me sporting a celeb inspired piece such as my name necklace like Carrie’s from Sex & The City.   Ironically it wasn’t until I was sent these horseshoe necklaces that I realized that most of my celeb inspired pieces are inspired by the Carrie Bradshaw character that I just adore.

I remember when the second Sex & The City movie came out I searched high and low for celebrity engagement ringslooking for a black diamond just like the one Big gave Carrie.  Although I found a good looking replica let’s just say that the quality wasn’t all that great and it’s not going to make it onto one of my jewelry displays.  These horseshoe necklaces on the other hand are definitely going on display!  I love love love  them!  The palm tree was added after I saw the picture of Alexa Chung sporting a frog and a palm tree on the red carpet and I loved the idea of the lucky horse shoe paired with the palm tree (which represents light ).  The little extra bit of bling just makes them look that much prettier and creates a perfect blend of quirky, trendy and glam.

I love it when quality and affordability are joined together especially with jewelry and emitations (I could not have possibly come up with a better name) does just that and more.  For more info on the necklaces featured visit www.emitaions.com
