‘Tis the season to sparkle! As soon as we put away our Halloween costumes, we shift gears to get ready for a month of parties, travel, family get-togethers and charity events. The holiday season is full of festivities and you’ll want to make sure you’re dressed well for them. So while you’re gift shopping for your friends and family, treat yourself to a few new pieces so you’ll be prepared.

Just like snowflakes, no two holiday parties are alike. You probably wouldn’t wear the same outfit to your company’s office party as you would for Christmas dinner at your aunt’s house! This season’s style is about jewel tones, sequins, soft fabrics and festive fashion, so you’ll enjoy putting together different ensembles for each event.

Dressing for the festivities doesn’t have to be a rushed panic or mean reaching for the same old LBD. Keep in mind as you’re gathering ideas to get ready for this soirée season that you'll want to feel as comfortable as  you look festive!  Here are some of our ideas:

The Cocktail Party

The sophisticated cocktail party is practically synonymous with the holiday season. Cocktail parties are a happy medium where you can go flashier than at the office party, but don’t have the pressure to dress like you’re at a black tie gala. They don’t call it the “cocktail dress” for nothing—a light, breathable dress with a playful hemline and fitted waist is a flattering option for any figure. If the gathering will be chilly, throw on some tights and a faux fur jacket.

If your dress is patterned or bright, keep accessories minimal. A pair of fashion earrings for women and a Lucky 5 Bangle will suffice. If you have a more subdued outfit, you can be a bit more adventurous with your jewelry. The Olivia Necklace is a versatile, elegant piece that can dress up a casual pantsuit or dress down a fancy outfit.

The Office Party

Your outfit for your work party will depend on the atmosphere. Work in the corporate world? Choose an outfit that will dazzle your co-workers while still maintaining some professionalism. Try a sweater, sequined pencil skirt, a pair of pumps and a Troubadour Necklace. If you wear a dress, show off your curves with the cut, but avoid cleavage.

If you work for a more casual company and the party will be informal, you can keep your look more laid back as well: think dark denim, a sparkly top and a fitted blazer with a pair of gold earrings for women. You could also go for a classic holiday look and sport a pair of black pants, a red sweater, a Biltmore High/Low Cuff and some ankle boots.

The Black Tie Gala

Move over little black dress, theres a new LBD in town — the LONG black dress. If you have the pleasure of attending a black tie event this holiday season, but are fraught with what to wear, fear not. As opposed to the cocktail dress with a shorter hemline, black tie affairs are all about length and formality. But because they are distinctive and recognizable, you can only wear your show stopper once. That is, unless you opt for a classic, long black gown paired with some visually arresting jewelry, like our multi-stand, gold and pearl Lacy Necklace, and gold earrings for women. If you already have a gold chain or choker, you can add a  statement enhancer, like our Miramar Rock Crystal Enhancer or Biltmore Medallion Enhancer Pendant. In the mood for a pop of color? Try our Biltmore Necklace encrusted with jewel-toned gems and bezel-set cabochons. The great thing about a long black dress and some jewels is that they can both be worn again separately, and in different ways, so youll get more mileage out of all the pieces!

New Year’s Eve

Whether you’re going out to a crowded club or enjoying a quiet night at home with your friends, don’t miss out on this chance to sparkle. A sequined shift dress and a blazer will work for practically any party, but if you’re staying in, a more subdued shimmery tunic with leggings and flats would be a more comfortable choice. If your outfit sparkles it’s always best to keep your jewelry simple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw on a Beverly Ring.

Giving Back is Glamorous

world renowned stylist Mary Alice Stephenson

Don’t forget about those holiday charity events. There’s something about the holiday season that makes people feel warmer and more generous, and December is packed with silent auctions and benefits to help those in need. This is the time when your classic LBD will come into play―this wardrobe classic can be dressed up with a shimmery clutch, bold heels and gold earrings for women, or it can be dressed down with a pair of flats and a cardigan. Swapping out your accessories can give your little black dress several different looks.

One organization that always gets us into the spirit of giving is GLAM4GOOD, a movement started by world renowned stylist Mary Alice Stephenson. GLAM4GOOD partners with nonprofits, media outlets and fashion and beauty brands to give life-changing makeovers and fashion expertise to everyday heroes and those in need. Recently, Camille K donated several signature pieces to GLAM4GOOD in hopes that we could help make someone’s holiday season a little brighter. We love any nonprofit organization that helps women feel beautiful.

Your time is precious, so surround yourself with the people who make you feel good and see the good in you. As fun as it is to get dressed up for all the events that are on the horizon, it’s more important to focus on catching up with people you don’t get to see as often as you’d like. Eat, drink, laugh, love and enjoy the season. 

A current online search for “jewelry trends” will render pictures of large cocktail rings, dramatic deco earrings and rose unique gold rings women pieces. But just because these trends are modern doesn’t mean they’re new. If there’s one thing people in the industry can agree on, it’s that fashion goes in cycles. Current trends are often recycled or reinvented from past decades, and that includes accessories.

So where do current jewelry designers get their inspiration? Most likely from ancient beginnings, but for brevity’s sake, we’ll take a look at jewelry styles from the last century.


The 1920s: Art Deco

If you’ve seen The Great Gatsby, you’ve seen the glamorous jewelry of the 1920s. The economic boom after World War I encouraged wealthy people to spend lavishly, and Art Deco style embodied luxury. Geometric pendants, strands of pearls, fashion earrings for women and diamonds were seen on stylish ladies. This is the time when costume jewelry became very popular in the US since women didn’t always want to go out wearing such expensive pieces.


The 1930s: All American

Jewelry was toned down in the 1930s as America went back to war and Art Deco style began to fade. Its influence could still be seen, however, in the clothing and accessories women wore. Since many European jewelers were shut down, jewelry took on a more American look. The fashion industry was influenced by what women wore on the big screen, hence the phrase “Old Hollywood glamour.” A multi gem bracelet for women would have been a popular choice.

In the 1930s, plastic was mixed in with jewelry’s natural materials. Moonstones and other inexpensive gems were popular, and imitation gems were often used.


The 1940s: Shine Bright Like a Diamond

This was an interesting decade. Due to the changing economy and social dynamic, fashion and jewelry trends were constantly changing as well. Then, in the late 1940s, De Beers Diamond Company launched an intensive campaign to sell diamonds. With the slogan “A Diamond is Forever,” they convinced thousands of American women that they needed diamond engagement rings. Hollywood starlets were soon seen dripping with diamonds as well.


The 1950s: Sleek, Slender Elegance

Fashion in the 1950s varied greatly from beginning to end, and that included jewelry. People were beginning to feel a bit more free when it came to their style choices. Women wore outfits that showed off their narrow waistlines, gravitating toward ultra-feminine fashions. While jewelry varied from classic pearls to shimmering brooches, the idea was to add sophistication to every outfit. Many women wore matching jewelry sets in order to look perfectly put together.


The 1960s: Go-Go Chic

Practicality and functionality came into play during this decade. Plastic jewelry became popular because of its low cost and variety of colors and shapes. Streamlined design and bright pops of color became the go-to look. Bold stacks of bangles unique gold rings women and layered necklaces became women’s accessories of choice.

The rise of the hippie movement and the boycott of corporate America brought the rise of homemade and Native American inspired pieces, psychedelic colors and swirls, peace signs, flower jewelry and macramé pieces. Handmade accessories were all the rage, and turquoise beaded pieces were especially popular.


The 1970s: Feelin Groovy

The carefree, lighthearted attitude that swept the 1970s swept the fashion scene as well with bold yet minimal jewelry pieces. Darker, understated colors began to emerge, and beaded jewelry rose to the forefront of fashion. Hemp and leather were mixed in with metals, giving the pieces a more organic and natural look. Large, ornate gold earrings for women were popular, a trend that is being spotted on the runways this year as we see another 70s fashion revival.


The 1980s: Material Girl

During this decade, big was beautiful. From hairstyles to shoulder pads, everything was large and bold. To match the vibrant fashion trends, jewelry was large, bright and distinctive. Jelly bracelets, large earrings and beaded necklaces replaced tiny and discrete necklaces and pendants. Oversized hoop earrings were the most coveted items in a jewelry collection.

The 1980s also saw a return of celebrating individual style. As the DIY punk rock look rose to fame, more women chose to mix and match or go for vintage pieces instead of sporting matching sets.


The 1990s: Girls Just Want to Have Fun

In the era of slap bracelets and butterfly clips, it’s hard to imagine the jewelry industry taking anything seriously during this time. Indeed, the pieces from the 90s had a more fun vibe than other decades―butterfly chokers, yin yang symbols and alien rings dominated the teen scene for the first half of the 90s. Hemp and beads returned from the 1970s, and colorful designs were everywhere. The 1990s was a spirited time for fashion and jewelry trends, and even fancier pieces were adorned with flowers and dragonflies.


The 2000s: The New Millennium

Since the dawn of the new century, we’ve seen a lot of recycled designs and vintage inspired styles. Large hoop earrings, layered necklaces, unique gold rings women, and bling rings were spotted early on with modern day style icons like Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone, and they continue to be popular today. The last two decades have shown us, perhaps more than any other, that history always repeats itself.

Luckily, when it comes to jewelry, this is a good thing. 


When it comes to your jewelry, what’s your style? Just like our clothing preferences, our taste in accessories says a lot about us. And they’re not always the same. We can stick to classic clothing silhouettes but gravitate toward eclectic, bold jewelry, or we can dress ourselves in the latest trends but wear timeless necklaces and earrings.

Knowing your preferred jewelry styles can help you choose the best accessories to complement your wardrobe, and it can help others get you beautiful gifts they know you’ll wear. If you’d rather sport a large multi gem bracelet for women than a more petite piece, your significant other or close friends will want to know.

If you answered mostly A’s, your jewelry style is modern.


If you answered mostly B’s, your style is classic.


If you answered mostly C’s, you’re a romantic with a touch of Bohemian.


If you answered mostly D’s, you can call your jewelry style trendy and edgy.

So what does that mean, exactly? Read on to learn more about your jewelry styles.

If you chose modern, this word probably describes your views on life and the way you live. You enjoy clean lines and minimalism, and you’re not afraid to be a little edgy, both with your style and the way you live your life. You may be quite the jetsetter, but even if you rarely travel, you enjoy learning about other people, places and cultures.

You prefer your jewelry to be iconic, just like you. Unique gold rings for women are right up your alley, and you probably rejoiced when the statement necklace became acceptable for everyday wear. While you may not go for anything too eccentric, you’ll always dare to wear colorful pieces.

Do you consider your style classic? Some people might confuse that word with traditional or even boring, but a classic woman is neither of those things (though she can gravitate toward traditional silhouettes at times). You like things to be timeless―films, music, fashion and accessories. It’s not that you shun current trend entirely, you just prefer to stock up on investment pieces you can wear for years to come. A perfect piece for you would be a Signature Cuff―you can sport it solo or add one of our many beautiful Signature Cuffs or Rings.

If your jewelry style is romantic, you enjoy a sweet, feminine style. Light colors, flowing fabrics and lace can all be found in your closet. You may look to the past,  to nature or to feminine style icons for your fashion inspiration. And when it comes to your jewelry, the prettier your pieces, the better. You may shop for vintage or antique jewelry in your spare time, going for romantic styles with embellishments and colors.

But that doesn’t mean you always pick delicate and demure pieces. You’d probably love a nice pair of gold earrings for women, and a perfect Camille K piece for you would be the romantic but edgy Bel-Air Estate Cuff.

If your jewelry style is trendy, you probably have a Pinterest board dedicated to New York Fashion Week and a copy of Vogue on your nightstand. You see a person’s style as an art form and you’re always ready to work on your self-expression. Take your cues from celebrities and style icons, but don’t be afraid to go with your gut and go for what you love.

Right now, statement necklaces and unique gold rings for women are trendy, with yellow and rose gold making a strong comeback. With something like the Empire Ring in your jewelry box, you’ll always have an elegant outfit enhancer at your fingertips. Pay careful attention when picking out your jewelry―the pieces don’t have to match, but they should complement each other.

The best news? Just like your personal style, your jewelry styles doesn’t have to be locked into one of these categories. It’s tough to change your hair color or wardrobe based on the way you’re feeling every day, but with jewelry, it’s a breeze. Decide what you love and what you’re not crazy about. The rest will fall into place. 

multi gem bracelet for women

No offense to the jewelry box, but we believe that some accessories deserve to be on display. And even if you own a jewelry box or two, necklaces have a tendency to become entangled and earrings can get separated easily. The obvious solution is to come up with a jewelry display that doubles as decor. 

The benefits of keeping your jewelry out where you can see it go beyond the aesthetic. Picking out your accessories is much easier when they’re all right in front of you and you can see what your options are. You won’t forget you have something or lose a piece because it’s been buried.

Stop haphazardly tossing your jewelry into a drawer. Save the jewelry box for your valuables and learn how to expertly display your accessories. Here are some wonderful ideas to get you started:

If you want to keep it simple, just hang a bunch of hooks on your wall. You can hang them in a pattern on a bare wall, in a row over your dresser, or fill any empty space that needs a little something. Hang your necklaces, bracelets and scarves on the hooks as well as chunkier pieces like a multi gem bracelet for women.

Another great idea for a hook display: color code your jewelry pieces. It will be visually appealing and interesting to look at.

Clean out your closets or go to your nearest craft store and get some empty frames. Spray paint the frames a matching color, then drill holes on the backside of the frame where the glass would sit. Fill the holes with dowels. Or, you can add hooks to the top of the frames and hang necklaces from them.

If you want your display to look unique, hang clipboards on the wall and use them to show off your statement necklaces.

Wrap a few coat hangers in pretty fabric. Hang the coat hangers on your wall and clip your necklaces to them with clothespins.

If you need help keeping track of all of your unique gold rings for women, use vintage saucers or small antique plates and keep them on your bedside table.

If you have a vintage inspired bedroom or bathroom or bedroom, take advantage of the repurposing trend. Find some old dresser knobs or door knobs and drill them into your wall. Use them to display your statement necklaces.

Drape your earrings over a teacup and use the cup to enhance your other jewelry displays or set it on top of your jewelry box.

Another use for teacups: place them side by side in your top dresser or nightstand drawer and organize your jewelry that way if you don’t want it fully on display.

Need to prep your pieces for the week? Perhaps you’re one of those organized people that picks out her outfits ahead of time, or maybe you pack to travel frequently. You can display your chosen jewelry on a mirrored tray on your dresser and keep the rest put away.

Keep bangles in apothecary jars, glass vases or mason jars on your shelves.

For your statement pieces, fasten a few hooks to a shadow box and hang several of the displays on a wall.

An old window with chicken wire instead of glass makes for a beautiful vintage display.

An unused corkboard can become a way to showcase your jewelry. Paint the frame if need be, then hammer some tiny nails into the cork. Hang your necklaces and bracelets in an eye-catching way and hang the corkboard above your vanity or dresser.

We’ve barely scratched the surface on all the ways you can display your jewelry. Not only will having a jewelry display be more convenient for you, it will give you some creative freedom to style it and show it off.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… New York Fashion Week is here! Since September 10, we’ve been obsessed with the Empire State and learning about the latest style trends. Even when it’s not being taken over by the fashion-forward, New York is a bustling city full of places to see and things to experience. 

Have you ever thought of going to New York for Fashion Week? It’s an experience unlike any other, but it can be a bit overwhelming if you’re not familiar with Manhattan and all it has to offer. We’ve put together a little guide for our friends who are lucky enough to enjoy a Fashion Week adventure and want to experience the best New York City has to offer.


Day One

Once you’ve checked in at your hotel and you’re ready to explore, make your first stop OC61 Salon & Spa for a spray tan so you can look your best at every event. Our favorite spray tanner is in-house pro Anna Stankiewicz, whose foolproof technique and meticulous attention to detail have won her a loyal following of actresses, models and editors.

OC61 is located at 33 East 61st Street on the third floor. Book ahead of time at 212-935-6261.

Once you’ve been sprayed and pampered, head to the Voltz Clarke Gallery at 141 East 62nd Street on the second floor. For the last 15 years, Blair Clarke has filled galleries and private residences with a wide range of contemporary art. Her business model is executed through private appointments, pop up exhibitions, studio visits, artist lectures and fashion collaborations. She founded Voltz Clarke in 2002 and it was an immediate success. The exhibitions at this gallery will excite and inspire you.

New York has some of the best dining options in the world, and deciding where to have dinner can be a challenge. Don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy a meal at Park Avenue’s Vaucluse Restaurant. Vaucluse was designed by Meyer Davis and shows no seams between its airy French vaulting and the New York tilting. On the menu you’ll find traditional French country dishes like veal tenderloin and pate en croute, not to mention incredible desserts. The executive chef, Michael White, worked in Italy and spent a lot of time in France. He draws inspiration from his summers in Grasse, and it shows.


Fashion Time

With all the shows, events and trunk sales that take place during Fashion Week, it’s impossible to see it all. But thanks to the new NYFW: The Shows App, you can get organized and make sure you don’t miss your must-sees. You can also attend as many shows as you want thanks to the live streaming option. Prop your feet up, sip some champagne and let the shows begin!

One name to remember? Charlotte Tilbury. The limited edition cosmetics line is coming to Bergdorf Goodman during New York Fashion Week. With makeup for every woman, no matter her age or skin tone, you won’t want to miss the Charlotte Tilbury collection. Pick up a Goddess Skin Clay Mask for when you’re relaxing in your hotel room after the day’s events.

Once you’ve been inspired by the runway-ready looks and you’re ready to shop, enlist the help of the very best. Get the app for PS Dept. and connect with our favorite personal shopper in New York, Lisa B (Lisa Safir-Barnes). You’ll find lisa at the J Crew Women’s Collection store or virtually on the app. For more style inspiration, follow her on Instagram @lisafiremarness.

The more you visit New York, the more familiar you’ll get with the neighborhood gems and must-see spots. Eventually you’ll find your own favorites, but always leave room in your schedule to explore.

We are partnering with fashion designer, Yola Colon, to bring you a day full of fabulous fashion and jewels. We will be showing all of our latest designs, including multi gem bracelets for women, unique gold rings for women and fashion earrings for women





Love is many things, but it’s not always practical. Sometimes you fall in love with some pieces of jewelry accessories without having any idea of how you’ll wear it. Some might say that you wear jewelry to accessorize your clothes, but if you love a piece of jewelry enough, make it yours and build your outfit around it.

Many pieces of Camille K jewelry fall into the “statement jewelry” category. The right statement  piece can transform an ordinary outfit into something special and often times, is the only accessory you need.

Here are some guidelines and inspiration for wearing your statement jewelry:

When wearing a bold piece such as a Biltmore Necklace or a Troubadour Choker, remember that less is more. They should be allowed to stand out, so don’t overcrowd them. It is best to wear one statement piece at a time, but if you must wear more than one, keep them apart. Don’t wear a multi gem bracelet for women and a large cocktail ring together. Unless you’re attending a very formal event, do not wear a bold statement necklace with statement earrings, even if they match.

If you’re going for an attention-getting piece of jewelry, keep your clothing simple. The stunning Troubadour Necklace is best worn with a little black dress or another wardrobe classic. Steer clear of busy patterns and wild prints. You want a statement necklace to really stand out.

Have some fun by dressing up a casual outfit with bold jewelry.  You can wear a denim shirt with a pair of fashion earrings for women or a bangle.  A plain white tee and jeans can be accessorized with a statement necklace.

Choose your earrings wisely. Statement earrings are beautiful and eye-catching. They will often be the first thing that someone will notice. Choose a pair that suits the shape of your face and enhances your best features. If you really want to show off your earrings, pull your hair back into a ponytail or bun.

Big, unique gold rings for women are trendy right now. You can wear an Empire Ring with a casual outfit or your formal wear. The key is to pay attention to your hands. Keep them moisturized and keep your nails filed and polished. Your nail polish doesn’t have to match your ring, but make sure the colors don’t clash.

Remember, no matter how large a statement ring is, it’s still a ring. These are the smallest of the statement pieces, so it’s OK to have a little fun with them. The bigger and brighter, the better! Just make sure you wear one at a time.

Layer an extra-long necklace with a shorter, simpler necklace, or wear it with a button-down shirt for a fresh vibe. Always wear the right necklace with the right neckline. Strapless or v-neck dresses are ideal for statement necklaces, while a dress with a lot of detailing will do better with a Signature Choker.

So, what about bracelets? Keep them tasteful. The Biltmore Cuff is an excellent choice if you’d like to wear a statement piece. Bare arms are best, but you can also wear it over a slim-fitting long-sleeved top. Stick to wearing one cuff at a time to create a focal point. Keep the rest of your jewelry accessories simple, but don’t forego it entirely. A cuff is one statement piece you can wear with other accessories.

Bangles also make great arm adornments. If you stack your bangles, keep them on one arm only. To avoid overdoing it, limit yourself to six bangles at a time. Layer colored bangles with gold and silver and make sure all the hue complement each other.

So, how do you build an outfit around your jewelry? Follow these steps:

  1. Pick out the piece of jewelry and observe the colors (even if it’s just gold or silver). Pay attention to the style of the piece.
  2. Pick out pieces of clothing that either match the colors in the piece or complement them. You don’t want your accessories working against your ensemble. Play around with your wardrobe—you might be surprised by what works.
  3. Try on other jewelry to see if it works with your chosen piece or if you should leave your outfit as-is.
  4. Acquire your other accessories: other jewelry, a scarf, your handbag, belt, shoes...whatever will make your outfit complete. Pile them on one piece at a time so you can see if they work with your outfit. If you seem overly accessorized, take one thing off.

Buy the jewelry accessories you’re drawn to. If you love it enough, you’ll always find ways to wear it.








It’s safe to say that, as a culture, we’re a little bit obsessed with celebrity style. Since they’re constantly being photographed and watched, celebs typically take it upon themselves to step up their style and create their own signature look. And between their big budgets, freebies from designers and professional stylists on hand, they have an abundance of creativity to work with.

We like to think of celebrity style as inspiration. Directly copying a look is unoriginal, but by seeing the unique outfits famous people can put together, we can create our own signature style with any spin. If there’s one thing most celebrities excel at, it’s accessorizing. And if you look at images of your favorite style icons, you can get the look for yourself.


Beyonce certainly knows how to be bold. Vibrant prints, big hair, glamorous makeup and bold prints are all part of her signature style. Queen Bey even looks put together when she’s in jeans and a tee!

To get Beyonce’s look, dress for your body type. She always seems to know the styles, fabrics, colors and textures that flatter her figure. In recent months, Beyonce has been spotted in several chic all-black ensembles. This is a trend we’ll see a lot of this fall and winter, and it’s so easy to emulate. Break up the black with some fashion earrings for women and a colorful cuff like our Biltmore Cuff II

Taylor Swift

We know she is an amazing performer but you must admit that Taylor Swift knows good style. Watching her style transformation as she has morphed from a curly-haired country crooner to a red-lipped starlet has been amazing. Taylor is not afraid to change her signature style and mix things up a bit.

To quote a line from one of her songs, “I got that red lip classic thing that you like.” And while it’s true that Taylor gravitates toward traditional fashion trends, she also works in some modern touches—she’s actually a big fan of Camille K jewelry!

To copy Taylor’s current look, go for feminine silhouettes. She isn’t afraid to show off her midriff with a crop top or wear a body-hugging dress, but she always keeps it classy. Ms. Swift was recently spotted wearing a Free People Reign Over Me Lace Dress and a pair of  strappy open-toed sandals, an outfit that would be easy to copy. We recommend a simple jewelry pairing for this look as well—a Miramar Rock Crystal Enhancer worn with a Camille K Signature Choker adds to the Bohemian style.

 Cara Delevingne

This runway-ready beauty is a fan of all things romantic. Florals, lace and pretty dresses are her standard staples, and she’s not afraid to rock a short skirt. This former model always seems to be on someone’s best-dressed list.

Cara certainly isn’t someone who wants to look effortlessly put together. It’s clear that she spends time on her outfits, working toward a perfect look. Even when she’s going casual, she still looks well-dressed. If you’ve got a little time and creativity to invest in your signature style, getting Cara’s look will be a breeze.

For a Cara Delevigne-approved look, layer on the lace. Go bold with your makeup, opting for either a smoky eye or a bright lip. Take it a step farther by letting your brows dominate your face like Cara does. For jewelry, a Troubadour Necklace provides the perfect pop of glam. For a slightly less dressy look, go for some simple but stylish gold earrings for women.

Kim Kardashian

She might not be everyone’s favorite person, but Kim K knows how to rock her signature style. This fashion icon, with a little help from her stylish husband Kanye West, always looks well-dressed. Her outfits deliver drama and sex appeal, and always show off her voluptuous figure. Kim’s fashion tastes are varied, but getting her signature look comes down to investing in a few key pieces.

Kim pulls nearly every outfit together with a camel colored coat. In addition to keeping her cozy, the coat makes everything she has look a little more chic. She also elongates the look of her legs with nude heels, a classic fashion must-do. When she’s not appearing in a fabulous dress, she enjoys showing off her curves in tuxedo pants. And of course, Kim always knows how to accessorize.

We could see Kim wearing our Biltmore Drop Earrings I when she needs to add elegance to a casual ensemble. She’s also a big fan of bracelets, and a Signature Black Diamond Pave Pearl Cuff would be right up her alley whether she was out shopping or strutting down the runway.

Make it your own

Remember, celebrity style should be an inspiration. With a little research and some creativity, you can get a similar look (and sometimes for a much lower price tag) with very little effort. The best part of getting inspired by the style of someone famous is changing it up a bit and making it your own. 

There’s no doubt about it—jewelry makes a memorable gift. A piece of jewelry marks an occasion or milestone, and it’s something people will cherish forever. But it’s also a very personal gift, and picking out the perfect piece requires a lot of thought.

Do your research

If you’re considering buying jewelry for your mother, a best friend, a romantic partner or anyone else in your life, start by finding out as much information as you can about her tastes. Some questions you’ll want to make sure you can answer include:

What kind of lifestyle does she lead? If she works in a professional setting or enjoys going out, she’ll probably wear more jewelry than someone who works in a very casual environment or stays in.

What are her preferences? Is she into delicate, simple pieces or larger statement accessories?

Does she wear more gold or silver? Are her ears pierced? What is her birthstone?

What kind of jewelry does she wear most often? Would she prefer a gold bracelet for women or fashion earrings for women

Knowing the answers to these questions will help you explore your options. The more you know about the preferences of the recipient, the more likely you are to get her a piece of jewelry she’ll truly love and cherish.

Think with your heart

Next, narrow down your search by focusing on capturing a memory or marking an occasion. For example, if you and your best friend are from California or enjoyed a perfect vacation on the Golden Coast, a Miramar Cuff  with its cast California Turban Shells would be a perfect pick. A creative way to announce a pregnancy is to get the grandmother-to-be a piece of jewelry featuring the baby’s birthstone. If you’re buying a piece for your significant other, go for jewelry that symbolizes something about the time or place you first fell in love. We’re all sentimental by nature, and the special lady in your life will love thinking of the memory every time she wears her jewelry.

Go for color

When buying jewelry for someone else, diamonds and clear crystals are always seen as a safe bet. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with going for a girl’s best friend, you shouldn’t be afraid to pick out something with some color. Bold accessories are both timeless and trendy, and less traditional than diamonds. What is her favorite color? Any fan of blue hues will love a Biltmore Cuff II, a multi gem bracelet for women.

Size Matters

Pay attention to the size of her neck, wrists, hands and frame. If she’s average sized, most pieces of jewelry should fit her. If she’s very short, long necklaces might look extra long on her. If her wrists are extremely petite, you may want to avoid a standard bangle or bracelet since it might not fit. If you need to know her ring size, the only way to find out without asking is to borrow one of her rings or try one on and guestimate that way. Most reputable designers and stores will allow an exchange in the worst case.

Ask around

The surest bet for buying someone a piece of jewelry she’ll love is to ask her closest friends for advice. If the gift is for your friend, email a link and ask the other ladies in your tribe for their opinions. If it’s for your girlfriend or wife, showing her best friend a photo will help you decide if a piece you’re debating is “the one.”

Keep the entire outfit in mind

Mismatched jewelry is common, and no one needs to wear a set all the time. That being said, an extremely unique piece of jewelry will be hard to wear unless she has something she can wear with it. If you’re going for something with a different look, consider getting her a set (or at least two pieces from the collection) so she never has to scramble for other accessories when she wears it.

Stylish safe bets

Every woman has different tastes, especially when it comes to her jewelry. But there are some pieces of Camille K jewelry that are meant to appeal to a variety of preferences. If you’ve done your research, asked around, snooped through her collection and you’re still stumped, here are three pieces of jewelry that she should love:

1.     The Stella One-Tone Necklace I can be worn long or short and paired with a wide variety of pieces.

2.     Any bling ring-loving lady will adore a Troubadour Ring.

3.     The Signature Short Reversible Pave Earrings are simple enough to be worn every day, but the Swarovski crystals add a bit of bling to capture attention.  

Happy shopping! 

No one enjoys thinking about the end of summer. The days might be long, but this warm, sunny, beautiful season of BBQs, beach trips and poolside lounging seems so short. Nothing lasts forever, and Summer 2015 is quickly coming to a close. But there is one major bright side to the ending of this era: it’s time for fall fashion.

Fall 2015 will see a return of some of the best styles of the 1970s as well as pleats, flounce hemlines, chunky knits, big, bold jewelry and a plethora of puffer coats. Those who live in colder climates should rejoice, because keeping cozy with lots of layering is officially in style. As always, it’s best to take a look at all the trends and then adapt them to your own personal style. It usually takes a few tweaks to take an outfit from the runway to “real life.”

Above all else, remember: it’s the accessories that make the outfit. Here are six of the most popular fashion trends for fall 2015 and the beautiful Camille K pieces to wear with them:

1.  Bling rings. Obviously, bringing back the bling ring is a fabulous idea. Oversized jewelry has been popular for years, but sometimes they involve minimal style. This fall we welcome the return of very feminine, sparkly jewelry. Camille K features plenty of unique gold rings for women, and one of our favorites is the Empire Ring.

The Empire Ring is inspired by the Empire State Building in New York. Much like its   namesake, this ring is a style icon. Aquamarine and Swarovski crystals give it a unique glisten. It’s certainly elegant enough to be worn on a night on the town, but it’s also perfect as an everyday accessory.

The Troubadour Ring is a slightly more versatile bling ring in the Camille K collection. The trilliant crystal catches the eye with a show stopping shimmer. Wear this piece with any outfit, day or night.

2.  Head To Toe Black. All black everything? Yes, please! This chic, slimming hue has been all over the runway this year, and we couldn’t be happier. Of course, you’ll want to break up the monochromatic look with some vibrant jewelry. And while colorful pieces will certainly work, nothing looks better with black than gold.

For a nice, layered look, wear a Lacy Necklace with your black ensemble. The classic combination of gold and pearls will really pop against a dark hue. Add a Lucky Bangle I to the outfit and your look will be complete.

Of course, for some all black outfits, you’ll want to wear a pair of gold earrings for women. The Beverly Swing earrings feature shimmering Swarovski crystals and a 1.5” drop, and they’re the perfect pair to take you from the office to the dance floor.

3. Flounce hems. Why go for a plain pencil skirt when you can have a skirt with personality? Flounce hems are flirty and fun, and you can wear them at work or for a night out on the town. For a daytime look, wear a flounce skirt with a fitted blouse and a Miramar Rock Crystal Enhancer added to a Signature Choker. The enhancer is the perfect size to complement the outfit without distracting from the bold hemline.

4. Flare pants. Bell-bottoms will be re-invented this fall as flared jeans and pants become a hot commodity. The flared hemline is actually very flattering, and you can enhance your best assets even more by wearing them with high heels or wedges. Of course, you’ll need some modern jewelry to keep your outfit from looking too retro. Keep it simple with a Eugenie Bracelet II and a pair of Miramar Earrings.

5. Statement Earrings. If the only jewelry you wear with your outfit is a pair of earrings, go for a big, bold style. Statement earrings will be everywhere this fall, and they’re definitely a chic way to accessorize. Between the two-toned Biltmore Drop Earrings III and the Beverly Two-Toned Earrings, Camille K has this fall fashion trend covered.

6. Turtlenecks. It seems that fashion brands can’t seem to kick this classic. The utilitarian style staple seemed to pop up all over Fashion Week this year. If you layer a turtleneck under a dress, you’ll get more use out of your warm weather pieces. Add some glam to a turtleneck with a Troubadour Necklace or create a vintage look with a pair of Chance Serpent Earrings

Summer certainly has its perks, but fall is a time to reinvent yourself and create your own signature style. This year, you’ll find a trend or two you can incorporate into your wardrobe and a flattering fit for every body. Getting dressed should always be fun, so go for the trends you like and that work for you.



At some point, everyone dreams of being dressed by a professional stylist. We want to show you how to wear several pieces of jewelry that look like they’ve been layered by an expert. Finding the perfect combination and balance of accessories is like striking gold―literally. And if you haven’t started layering yours yet, you should! 

Layering jewelry is easier than you think. All it takes is a little creativity and a few tips from the experts. Above all else, remember not to take layering to the extreme. While you’re not going for a “less is more” look, you don’t want it to look overdone and cluttered.

We want to help you get more mileage out of your jewelry collection without the expense of hiring a professional. Interested in reading about fashion earrings for women? Ready for a few layering lessons you can use to enhance your outfits? Read on.

  • Don’t choose between layering necklaces or bracelets―you can layer both. It’s true! Just because you’ve stacked your bangles doesn’t mean you have to stick to one simple necklace. The key is to choose the same layering style for your neck and arms. If you’re going bold with a multi gem bracelet for women stacked with some simple gold bangles on your arm, do the same with your neck. Layer a bold Biltmore necklace with a smaller gold chain.

  • Wear a hand full of bold rings. Since rings are smaller, you can wear them on every finger and get away with it. The Pantone Black Perle Ring can be worn in multiples. Wear it with a Pantone White Perle Ring and then place a Gold Perle Ring alongside it. 
  • Accentuate your cuffs. A beautiful jeweled cuff (like this gold bracelet for women) is chic when worn alone, but adding a few bangles, links or beads will make it look modern. 

  • Use one piece as your “anchor” piece. You can get as creative with different colors as you want as long as you’ve got one piece tying them all together. A plain black necklace or bracelet works well, or you can pick out a piece that uses all the different colors you’d like to incorporate into your look. 

  • Wear heavy and dainty pieces at the same time. Don’t save your statement necklace for a special occasion. Instead, layer it with a few simpler go-to pieces and make a style statement every day.

  • Use multiple necklaces in the same color to enhance a solid-colored top or dress. Think of how great your go-to LBD (little black dress) would look with a long gold chain and a Stella One-Tone Necklace I worn short. Layering necklaces breaks up the monotony of a solid hue.

  • Mix high contrast bracelets. Don’t be afraid to pile on a pair of pearl bangles, a rhinestone bracelet and a beaded piece. As long as you have your anchor piece in place, the juxtaposition will work just fine.

  • Mix metals. You’ve probably always heard that it’s best to avoid mixing gold and silver or yellow and white gold. But mixing metals is interesting, chic and contemporary. Just make sure the metals complement each other instead of adding too much contrast. You want each piece to stand out. 

  • Don’t worry about spacing your necklaces evenly. Let them fall where they may! Spacing them evenly can often look too planned and the goal is to look like the placement was unintentional.

  • Break all the rules when layering necklaces. In fact,mix silver with gold, wear a delicate chain with chunky beads, and throw in a leather piece just for fun. You want to create your own style statement, not copy someone else’s look.

  • Partner your big and old jewels when you’re wearing a fancy party dress. Just make sure they sit at different lengths so they’ll both stand out. Wear a Troubadour Choker I with a Troubadour Two-Toned Necklace and you’ll notice that they complement each other.

  • Layer delicate pieces. Two simple necklaces or bracelets can be layered, too. In fact, that look is sweet and pretty. Stay true to your own style.

  • Layer your rings! Yes, you can stack your rings on the same finger. You’ll have to stick to simple bands with one larger piece, but it can (and should!) be done.

  • Pair new pieces with old treasures. Skinny modern gold bands worn with a vintage cocktail ring will look eclectic and amazing.

  • Layer necklaces with a casual t-shirt and jeans. You’ll add instant elegance to your outfit, and the entire look will appear effortless. 

  • Stack bracelets on either side of your watch. You should always include your watch in your jewelry layering. 

The biggest takeaway? Don’t be afraid to experiment with layering jewelry. Spend some time in the mirror trying on different combinations with your outfits. Not everything will work, but you might be surprised by what you come up with. Remember, jewelry is an expression of your personal style. The more you experiment, the more comfortable you will be with creating your unique point of view.
