Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I’ve got hope. Pink hope…in Avon’s Ribbon Charm Toggle Necklace!  Toggle necklaces are super hip, and this one does double duty by showing support for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.  Avon is a national sponsor and 15% of Pink Hope purchases are donated, up to $700,000 this year.  While this is a faux toggle necklace, my OCD appreciates its symmetry–thanks to a couple well placed tack welds.  I really love the attention to detail this necklace has–an infinity symbol that’s part of the chain next to the toggle, then the charms themselves: an iconic pink ribbon symbol, a beautiful pink CZ, and a light pink iridescent bead.  I’m a fan of the chain’s length–it makes the toggle and charms hang right below my clavicle, which is prime décolletage real estate to feature pendants.  It’s relatively lightweight and tends to hang straight, so this is an all-around superstar!

Into the mystic…in Avon’s Sterling Silver Mystic Topaz CZ Halo Necklace and Drop Earrings!  These pieces may be dainty, but they sure sparkle their little points off!  The topaz stones are absolutely stunning too–lots of blue, green, and purple…like a mermaid stone!  I particularly like the three round CZ stones that adorn the “drop” on the necklace’s pendant–they are a lovely touch.  I’m almost always a fan of the sterling silver pieces, and these are right in line with my expectations: beautiful, elegant, and a stately presence–they tick all the boxes.  The size of these are suitable for young girls, though the design is very traditional, so they may be too old-fashioned (or grown-up) looking for youngsters, depending on their age.

Getting a little guidance…in Avon’s Guidance Charm Necklace and the crown studs from the Pretty Plum Earring Trio!  The necklace’s chain is ridiculously long (36″ with a 3.5″ extender!), and it’s adorned with beautiful gold balls along its entire length.  Because of its length, I opted to triple it up around my neck to the pendant’s charms hung at a more pleasing level and give me two beautiful choker chains.  I love everything about these charms, but the main “snake” looking one is my favorite!  It has movement to it even when it’s laying flat against my chest…it’s very pleasing to the eye and, of course, super shiny! The other two disc charms are lovely as well, but ones we’ve all seen before.  I opted to turn the crown studs upside down to wear them more like ear crawlers, and I cannot get over how much I love them!  Since I have smaller ears, these have fit my ears better than actual ear crawlers have, which tend to be a little too long on me.  Two pieces from two different collections, and both worn differently than intended, but they work terrific together!

Those are all of the past week’s selfies! What was your favorite and how would you have worn it?!

  1. I think the upside down crown works better than it would as if it was the right side up. Nice pieces.

      I dunno—they would probably work great worn as crescents too.

    These look great, but I don’t think they’ll work on me. They look far better on you 🙂
