September 26, 2011 in she's got the look
The moment I spotted these baubles from the Belle Étoile jewelry collection, I wanted to adopt them all. The magnificent turtles, butterflies, lovebirds, and giraffes are rendered in vividly hued enamel overlayed in sterling silver. Patterns are amazingly detailed, playful and elegant while the opulent color-story references the Belle’s Mediterranean roots. And the CZ-accents add just the right amount of razzle dazzle without veering into tacky territory.
