Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I don’t usually celebrate Mondays, but…just look at Avon’s Sterling Silver Celebration Cut Solitaire Ring, Necklace, and Stud Earrings!!  These pieces all deliver on their promise to dazzle even more than diamonds!  I’m not really a ring person, but I couldn’t pass this one up–not only was it really affordable, but if we get to go to Paris and Rome next year on vacation, I plan on swapping out my legit diamond wedding set for a CZ set–ain’t no gypsy gonna walk off with my jewels!  And this set seriously passes for real!  I’ve been wearing the earrings and necklace nearly every day since I cracked open their boxes (also, sorry I’ve not been posting as many selfies–this go-round it wasn’t because of a low inventory selection…I simply got “stuck” on this set).  While I have zero complaints about the earrings and necklace, the ring’s baguette band is rough–poke-y and scratchy.  I really wish it were a bit more smooth (and that it came in a 4-1/2, which is what my ring finger actually is…but that’s more of a “just me” issue–having child-sized appendages is cute and all, until you try to buy adult things to adorn them with, like jewelry, hats, and other accessories).  All that said, I’m strongly considering purchasing a second set just so I have a backup–I love it that much!

Who says Halloween can’t have a dab of elegance?  I definitely went there in Avon’s Elegant Purple Earrings!  These have a blast from the past feel to them that I love–a little Victorian, a touch royal, and a dash 1960s.  They are not very large, so aren’t heavy at all, but still big enough to make people do a double-take and say, “Lemme see your earrings!”  The extra facets on this purple-colored glass stone really make it pop, and appear more authentic.  They dangle and sway just enough to be fun, without packing a wallop to the side of your head and face.  My kind of earrings!

Gilded cages…in Avon’s Hexagon CZ Caged Necklace and the button studs from their Pretty Plum Earring Trio (no longer available).  The pendant on the necklace is smaller than I thought it would be–and it flops around like a D&D 20-sided die, never laying flat for long.  It sure is pretty, but I kept futzing with it all day trying to get it to hang right…and I can’t even blame it sticking to my skin this time.  That said, I’m not mad about it–it’s a new design and I rather like the look of it.  Maybe if it were a little heavier, it wouldn’t flop around as much?  I dunno–sounds like a physics or engineering question to me, and I’m not good at either of those subjects.  The earrings were the last in the trio that I had yet to wear, and I was stunned to find they went with the pink hued stone in the necklace so well!  That entire trio of earrings are a win!!  I was sad to find out they are already out of the book, but maybe they’ll reappear in the clearance section at some point in the future.  If they do, you won’t regret popping the set in your cart!

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