Braided Tassel Pendant

Touchstone necklace 1

The first piece I had the opportunity to wear, was the Braided Tassel Pendant (ARV $135.00). As I  took it out of the box, the first thing that captured my attention about the Braided Tassel Pendant, was the sparkle coming from every part of this necklace, starting with the shine of the metal all the way down to the light gleaming off of the large Swarovski Crystals attached at the bottom of the tassel. The quality of the metal is outstanding and the necklace itself has a weight that represents just how authentic this necklace is. It's not heavy in a way that makes it uncomfortable to wear, by any means, but weight that is a true sign of the quality in the metal used to make this great piece that can be used for so many different outfits year round.

This Braided Tassel Pendant comes with a removable 6” tassel with touches of Crystal and Crystal Silver Shade crystal. It has rhodium plating and is 36” total length. I love this necklace because it is effortless in it's beauty and simple yet eye-catching design. There are so many ensembles in my closet that could use a little sprucing up and this necklace is just the ticket to taking any of my "plain" outfits to the next level without looking like I'm trying to hard. I like to think of this Braided Tassel Pendant as "effortlessly chic". Click HERE to purchase the Braided Tassel Pendant for $135.0

Tessa Bracelet

Tessa Bracelet final

Undeniable unique, the Tessa Bracelet (ARV $129.00) is fantastic (and probably my favorite piece of the three) for so many reasons! I absolutely love the mix of the "hardness" of the leather strap and the "softness" of the sparkle coming off of hundreds of tiny crystals embedded in the circular pendants around the bracelet. This bracelet is different than any other bracelet I own and truly different than any other bracelet I've come across. I have already worn this with so many different outfits! It's uncanny how this bracelet has the ability to dress up something casual or make a bold statement to something more formal. It goes amazing with jeans and a top but also looks just as spectacular when worn even in a flowing spring dress. Whether I wear it alone, or pair it with a few of my other bracelets, the Tessa is, without a doubt, the piece that stands on its own in a crowd. Easy to take on and off with it's magnetic clasp, and absolutely so much fun, this bracelet is hard for me not to reach for, no matter what i'm wearing!

Wearing Bracelet
The light from all these crystals reflects so many different colors. From the angle of my wrist and the light from the camera, you can see lots of purple in the crystals compared to the picture above. 
 The Tessa Bracelet is designed with discs of Crystal Fabric in Black Crystal Comet Argent Light, a black leather strap, rhodium plating; 7 ¼” length, and a magnetic closure. I have a small frame and sometimes have trouble with bracelets feeling to big or loose for me.  The Tessa Bracelet was a perfect fit - but I will say there was still plenty of room for someone who might not have a wrist as petite as mine. Even though the leather strap itself is black, because of this bracelets ability to reflect so many different colors in the crystals, there's really no outfit this bracelet won't match!

  Switch It Up Earrings

Touchstone Earrings final

The last of the jewels that I had the opportunity to review were these fantastic and versatile Switch It Up Earrings (ARV $69.00). With their two shades of blue crystals, framed by bright purple crystals, these earrings are quite eye-catching to say the least! They are held in place firmly with plastic earring backs and I have yet to struggle with them feeling at all loose in my ears. With the versatility of these earrings it's actually like purchasing three earrings in one. Wear them as shown above, take off the purple frame for a smaller, all blue set, or even take the purple frames and flip them over to have your blue crystals framed in sliver! Touchstone Crystal has done it again with a product that adds sparkle to your casual days but also fits perfectly for an evening out!

Check out the size difference when utilizing the frame, "or switching it up" by removing it and going "all blue". 
Personally, I love using the frame for my dressier moments and the smaller style for my more casual days. I have two piercing holes in each ear, and though I could probably squeeze a second stud in if I really wanted to, leaving the frame on my Switch It Up Earrings pretty much means it's the only earrings I will wear (and with all that sparkle, why would I really need to wear another)? I do also love the simplistic beauty of removing the frame for a more dainty look. With the smaller size in I can add a second earring, or even move the Switch It Up blue earrings to my second hole leaving room with a hoop or larger dangle earring on the bottom. When it comes to versatility these earrings are both stunning and practical! These earrings are created with Dark Indigo, Indian Sapphire, Denim Blue, Montana, and Amethyst crystal and include rhodium plating. Click HERE to purchase the Switch It Up Earrings for $69.00
