Being a purple fanatic, I'm forever checking out what's available bling-wise, and here are a few more little treasures I've picked up from Goldmark over the last 6 months. From memory, these were all under $30, and therefore 100% guilt-free lol. This first one is such a pretty colour - actually, to be honest, I don't have it any more! A week after I bought it I wore it when visiting my parents, and my Mum loved it so much (and I mean REALLY loved it), and it looked gorgeous on her hand, so I figured it was meant for her. She's mad keen on purple too (I wonder if colour-love is hereditary?) and it matches a few of her outfits perfectly. A couple more and she'll be a bling-babe too ♥
Not the best photo of purchase #2 (it's so much prettier in real life) - this was my replacement for the one that's now on Mama's finger. It's way more of a pinky-violet hue, but I tend to wear this shade more often than true purple, so it all worked out just right. Nowhere near as blingy as #1, but I love the square shape, it looks almost quietly elegant on my hand, and it does have a couple of subtle sparklers either side of the main stone. The raised setting has a delicate filigree design on two sides, and it only set me back $19.95 ♥
And here is my most recent addition - this gem is fit for a princess! Sadly my camera isn't able to capture the beauty of it's cut, colour and gleam - half-way between purple and violet, it seems to suit my skintone the best of all, and the surrounding diamantes catch the light brilliantly. There's more silver in the setting too so it's heavier - built to last I'd say. This is my current fave, and the one I wear most often...
I have a few more up my sleeve (or rather in my jewel box) so there'll be more bling posts up soon ♥
Take care of you,
