what i want today: devon leigh jewelry

devon leigh is the latest designer darling to hit the celeb set - her collections are beloved by the kates, kirstens and scarletts of the world, to name just a few. fortunately for the rest of us, her pieces are still accessible to mere mortals, and they're the perfect way to add something really striking and fabulous to your jewelry box.

with loads of pretty eye candy to choose from...i hardly know where to begin.

this amazing turquoise and smoky topaz necklace ($655) is one of those pieces that looks completely overwhelming, but i think you'd find yourself reaching for it day after day. i love the idea of this peeking out from a black collared shirt, or to make a simple black dress really exceptional. i also think it would be just fabulous with a simple, sleek jersey tee layered under a suit.

and this peruvian opal, yellow jade and turquoise necklace ($696) is just the quintessential summer piece - i'd use it to dress up the super casual cotton or linen i stick with religiously when the thermometer climbs above 90 degrees.

these wrapped amber drop earrings ($375) would be amazing for day if your hair was down, but imagine them complimenting a chic chignon for evening - divine!

i love this multi-tiered chain bracelet ($440), which reminds me a bit of my marco bicego, but is half the price, for more than twice the bracelet. not a bad deal at all.

check out the full collection at devon leigh's website - you're sure to find a gem (or several) you can't live without.
