Every year we hear the same thing (fill in the blank) is the new black.  Recently the opposite has been true in watches. ALL of the high-end designers recently have been showing black boyfriend-style watches.  Gucci, Dior, Chanel — are ALL showing black watches!Dior black watchgucci black watch chanel black watch

It’s Summertime!

21 Jan

As you know, Shop4Sparkles does a lot of work with the editorial staff at the various fashion magazines – providing them with accessories – which is always fun.  But what is particularly great is that we’re always working six months ahead.  So while it may be cold and snowy in most parts of the country, the conversations we’re having with the magazine editors these days are all about summer — long necklaces to go with sundresses, sunglasses, bright colors!  So it’s makes summer seem like it’s right around the corner and THAT’S a good thing!

On that note, the high-end designers are really coming up with some fab-o-la sunnies (that’s the cool term for sunglasses!!! like LBD!) and Shop4Sparkles has some really really great styles on the way.  Stay tuned!!!

Stay warm, fellow Sparklers!


Black & Gold Late Summer / Fall Accessory Love!

7 Aug

At the start of the summer season, white was our favorite new accessory color. Now, we’re moving into the late summer season and refining our choices a bit. This upcoming F/W 2012 style season is calling for a lot of black and gold, from clothing and jewelry, to even headgear!


Dolce & Gabanna Black + Gold F/W 2012


Gucci Black + Gold F/W 2012

 Design houses like Versace, Dolce & Gabanna, and Gucci have been at the forefront of this trend forecast, and now we offer you some of their runway-inspired accessory looks for a fraction of the cost!


From our most recently featured Fashion Forward Bracelet, found in the latest issue of Redbook Magazine, to our geometrically-inspired Chloe Earrings (bottom left), there is little bit of something for everyone with the newest accessory trend.  The black & gold is a commanding look that draws attention to your power and confidence in what you wear!

Until next time,

Ring Of The Week: Stars & Stripes Ring!

12 Jul

Happy Thursday to all, the week is almost through, but we’re ready to sparkle well into the weekend.

Click Image To See Our New Ring Of The Week In Shop!

Here’s our brand new Ring Of The Week, the fabulous Stars & Stripes Ring. For lovers of geometric-style jewelery, this one is for you. Lined with rows of true blue, and white crystals stacked asymmetrically, this is a great statement piece with a hint of color making it perfect for summer wardrobes.

Ring Of The Week: Stars & Stripes Ring | Great Summer Statement Piece.

The ring fits very comfortably on the index finger, and doesn’t move a bit. As usual, the band is elastic and stretches to fit most any finger you’d like to wear it on [ although it would be a bit too big for the pinky].

As you can see here, this is a cute piece to wear with a great manicure and some nail art. This funky nail  design is by Nail Tite! This ring would also go great with our White Watch.

The Stars & Stripes Ring is now in the shop for a wonderfully valued  price, so make sure you grab one of these one-of-a-kind rings before they are out of stock.

Until Next Time,
