Up Your Summer Style Bling Quotient with!

Ascending Butterfly Summer Jewelry Review and Editorial Sponsored by:

With all the excitement surrounding BlogHer 2010, I nearly forgot to share with you ways to up your summer 'bling factor' with affordable and versatile jewelry that will take you from a casual backyard BBQ to a summer cocktail party with ease!

While at BlogHer I wore a very special ring from that didn't fail to get attention! You all already know by now that when I wear a piece of jewelry that truly becomes 'my own', for some reason, I can't help rubbing it when I'm lost in thought! I'm happy to report this ring passed my 'rub test'. I found myself doing it without even thinking about it, that's when I know the piece has a found a home with me!

What I love about jewelry is that it has a WAY longer shelf life that expensive trendy jeans or tops. You will either outgrow a trendy clothing item, it won't be in season, or it no longer fits, this doesn't happen quite as often with jewelry, and your jewelry goes with mostly everything you wear making it a very versatile investment! is running a Summer Styles Campaign bringing you some of their best pieces at a steal! Here is a peak at 12 of their most amazing pieces for summer (I'd say YEAR round as well!):

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 1 Carat Diamond 10K White Gold Tennis Bracelet - It's definitely hard to resist a Tennis Bracelet! Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 44 Carat Blue Topaz & Diamond Sterling Silver Bracelet - (you guys know I'm an April baby and Diamond is my birthstone, so anything with Diamonds in it is bound to catch my eye! This would pair just as nicely with a sundress as it would with jeans!) - Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 25 Carat Sapphire 18K Gold Over Sterling Silver Bracelet - (These are some RICH looking Sapphires, this is your little black dress, cocktail party bracelet for sure!) - Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 4 1/2 Carat Blue Topaz, Sapphire and Diamond 10K White Gold Ring - (Ok, TING, more Diamonds, but it can also go super casual with your jeans with that play on play of blues with the topaz and sapphire!) - Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 3 1/10 Carat Green Amethyst and Black Diamond 14K White Gold Ring - (I've never actually owned Black Diamonds, would love the feedback of those who do, do they sparkle as much as white diamonds?) - Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 14K Yellow Gold Ring w/ Rhodium - This is the ring I reviewed, and I absolutely love it! It has great detail which allows it to play up both evening and daytime attire! And with the Gold and Rhodium color interplay I can go either way with earrings. I can wear pretty much any style watch with it and I'd have to say it's the most versatile Gold Fashion Ring I own! - Check it out HERE

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 1/2 Carat Diamond Sterling Silver Heart Pendant w/ Chain - (I would highly recommend this one for anyone who has a daughter going off to College this Fall. There is something so youthful, graceful and special about this pendant, it would be treasured by your daughter for sure!) - Check it out HERE
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 4 1/3 Carat Blue Topaz, Sapphire & Diamond 14K White Gold Pendant w/ Chain - (For the Topaz afficionado, this is a true stunner. Something about it strikes me as being somewhat Russian Inspired) - Check it out HERE
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 2 Carat Black & White Diamond Sterling Silver Heart Pendant w/ Chain - (Definitely a great pendant for a night out on the town!) - Check it out HERE
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 20 Carat Multi-Gemstone 14K Yellow Gold Earrings - (I love the purple hues from light to dark and the overall flirty appeal, from summer sundress to jeans and a flirty top this will work well with what you've got in your wardrobe!) - Check it out HERE
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 1/2 Carat Black Diamond Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings - (These are statement earrrings! They are not small!) - Check it out HERE
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 1/2 Carat Princess Cut Diamond 10K White Gold Invisible Set Earrings - (I SO wanted these myself! I am sure it goes without saying that these go with EVERYTHING!) - Check it out HERE
And for those who saw me wearing them at BlogHer my favorite White Gold Hoop Earrings were purchased at YEARS ago, well before my blogging days, so when I tell you I love's jewelry it's from personal experience that started way before my reviews! Those earrings have held up well, and I'm not exactly delicate careful with my jewelry, those earrings have been through the ringer and have held up well for YEARS now, and I have no doubt the 14K Gold Rhodium Ring will hold up just as well to my incessant banging on the keyboard and drumming my hand on the desk when I find myself on hold on the phone and forget I have a ring on!
