Or, black pearls at least! These three necklaces look smashing together. They include: the short organic pearl and coin pearl necklace; the vintage tassel with black pearl; and the black ox chain, pearl, and vintage necklace. Happy shopping!

For the "royals:" a necklace with vintage rhinestone crown and other vintage elements with chain and glass pearls hand-knotted on silk. You'll feel like a queen wearing it!

This is one of my new favorite necklaces! It features a vintage pin from Turtle Lake, Wisconsin.
The pin is amazing in it's brilliance. There are four strands of quartz, shell pearls, and Swarovski pearls in gold plate.
Want to see it? I'll have it at the Holiday Boutique at 8500 Normandale Boulevard, Bloomington, MN on November 20th and 21st from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm each day.
I'd love to see you there!

When I think of my mother, Donna, I think of her as being full of life and light. She taught me what is important; family and friends, to concentrate on what is good and what is worth working for; to stay true to who you are, and that sometimes change is good and necessary.
Her birthstone is the pearl; funny that I use it in most of my designs. She passed in 1983 at the age of 55; yet she lives on in her family and in my jewelry. She is one of the strongest women that I have ever met. My mother is the "donna" in L'donna, and she would love this necklace!

Why not dress up that "little black or red dress" with this vintage earring necklace, and 2 strand gray pearl and art deco pin necklace?
The "Paris" necklace in silver with vintage rhinestone.
As always, both will work with that white tee and jeans. Feel free to add a jacket.

This style has been so popular that I made another one!
The vintage pin is Trifari along with a vintage flower and cross. The rest is made of pearls and chain.
Wear it with that LBD, a tee shirt and jeans, or a silk blouse and pencil skirt.
If we can't be in Paris, we can wear this and dream of it.

As the temperatures during this past week can suffice, summer seems to bring hot weather, but also travel and weddings. My husband and I have already attended several this summer, and for that reason, I decided that I would put together a few outfits from Zara with a statement necklace from my own L'donna Jewelry collection for a updated take on what to wear to summer weddings.
On a related note, my daughter Erin introduced me to the Spanish department store Zara this past spring during our travels in Madrid, Spain. I quickly became enamored with its many exciting pieces and vast selection. Zara combines high-quality manufacturing of their garments with affordable pricing, making it one of my new favorite clothing retailers. If only they had more locations in the U.S.!
This L'donna Jewelry statement necklace features a vintage flower pin with chain and pearls, making it very classic and Chanel-esque.
The black dress is perfect with its asymmetrical hem and stays on trend with a cutout back. For a more modern and sexy look, try the red jumpsuit. The necklace, shoe, and bag tie it all together.
I would recommend pairing the red dress with the metallic ankle boots for a more casual affair. This outfit would be perfect for an outdoor wedding, and the necklace truly pops against the red lace dress.
Enjoy the warm summer weather and those weddings!

This necklace was inspired by the city of Paris and her protégée Coco Chanel. Fittingly, the necklace above is named "Coco" and is one of my daughter's favorite necklaces from my collection. That being said, I have put together two different ways to style this necklace: one is for dress-up and the other is for play.
The first outfit centers around the LBD with the Coco necklace and is perfect for a fun night out downtown. This specific dress is form-fitting and very attractive when worn. I would pair this dress with the Schoolboy Blazer in white; my suggestion would be to roll the sleeves and pull them up. Finally, I believe that the striped pump is the perfect way to tie the outfit together with a bright pop of color.
The second outfit could be worn for lunch on the terrace or boutique shopping. Mixing prints and using colorblocking in your wardrobe keeps your look current this season. For example, I love the colorblocked top paired with the thistle print pant above. The necklace completes the look, along with the metallic sandal.
Necklace: "Coco" by L'donna Jewelry; email email@example.com to place an order.
Both looks were compiled from J. Crew.
