Bling





Maybe it's not entirely polite, but yes, I'm showing off my fabulous new Christmas present--this amazing necklace, the likes of which I've never seen before.

Angel asked me what it's called. You know, how most pieces of jewelry have names? Earring, bracelet, anklet, etc. He doesn't think "necklace" adequately describes whatever this is. I offered "armor jewelry" as a possible name. He typed that into google and found pictures of all manner of very interesting wrap-around chain jewelry similar to this, so maybe I'm on the right track...but seriously, is there an actual name for a piece like this?

It's actually surprisingly comfortable. During the one day I've worn this so far, I was at home, watching movies and wandering around the apartment complex. I just looked especially awesome while doing so. I spent the day claiming that I felt like Cleopatra, or a fairytale princess, or someone else associated in my mind with awesome and unusual bling. Maybe this kind of necklace isn't for everybody, but I think everybody ought to have something they wear that makes them feel the way I do when I wear this necklace.

That is so cool! It looks like it's part of your dress. It kind of adds a 1920s flair, the way I see it!

You wear the most interesting things and always manage to make them look absolutely fabulous! I think it's because you exude confidence :)

The necklace looks so beautiful on you, you should absolutely show it off! :)

Abby Barstow said...

I think armor jewelry is an appropriate name ;)
Reminds me of something a flapper would wear in the 20s!

Karin Rambo said...

It looks really good on you! Seeing as I'm a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, I don't think I could pull it off. 😜 But it suits you perfectly!

Pellerini said...

I've never seen a necklace like that - and I agree the name "necklace" doesn't do it justice!

Angela Tolsma said...

Hah, you definitely do look like some kind of royalty with that--Cleopatra is a look that suits you well! Those pieces are so much fun. I see them in Lookbooks a lot but have never actually gotten around to trying one myself. You wear it perfectly, my Queen.

I love it. I have a few pieces of body jewelry I've worn to festivals and I adore them! Just don't let it get tangled! It can be nearly impossible to detangle sometimes! :)

I love it! I thought it was part of the dress, at first but I love that it's a necklace (or whatever you call it!).

Budget Splurge Beauty said...

I love it, and I would probably call it a "body chain" or "body jewelry" ....armor jewelry is fun, too! Lol
