Happy Tuesday everyone! I am excited to share some sunshine with you today & it is totally getting me prepared for this weekend’s trip to LA! I’m sure you noticed the gorgeous new jewels I’m sporting and let me tell you they are even more beautiful in person.

Shop-Archipelago is an online destination curated by owner Ruth Luhukay who started out in fashion in New York. Her love of jewelry led her to the store’s launch in 2015 and the shop is full of designers from all over Indonesia. She helps support these amazing craftswomen and allows them to reach an online global audience they may have never before which I find kind of amazing.

I was immediately drawn to this necklace and these pearl earrings for so many reasons. How cool are the insanely ornate back’s? I always love to make my jewelry pop so I will generally try to keep either a necklace or earrings on the simpler side and make a statement with the other. Too much bold jewelry can quickly become overwhelming so I think a good tip to follow is to keep it spread out. Choose either the earrings or necklace to make a statement and then either bracelets or rings. This allows you to even out that heaviness and really let those statement pieces pop!

Beautiful jewelry is such an amazing investment piece because it can transform a simple chic all black look and will stay with you for a lifetime unlike trendy clothing. I paired the pieces with my yellow maxi dress since I felt like the whole vibe was ethereal and sadly this dress is an old piece but I linked a few similar ones above. Even though this dress is a bold color it works with the pieces and you shouldn’t be scared of mixing prints with bold jewelry either! Depending on the piece I think it’s chic to pair it with anything from a simple pair of boyfriend jeans and a white tee all the way to a gown!
