When it comes to jewelry, glossy online photos can entice you, and when the products already look good “on paper” you may wonder if they’re going to be as nice when you see them in person. Lacey Ryan is a young designer and entrepreneur whose jewelry collection is designed to bring luck, protection and strength to those who wear her pieces. They look very pretty on her web site, but even better up-close-and-personal.
For example, I’ve fallen in love with this Lacey Ryan Purple Eternity and Protection set ($125.00). As you can see from the photo above, this set of five bracelets features amethyst, onyx, and hematite beads, paired with little charms that (hopefully) will bring healing, protection, and love to the wearer. Even if they didn’t work as a talisman, they bring admiring looks! What you can’t see from the photo is that each strand is not just a different color and texture (some are faceted, some are smooth) but each bracelet has t least one (some have several) little charms that either dangle, or are incorporated into the bracelet. Look and you’ll find: Fleur de lis, evil eyes, hamsa, heart, and even a diminutive elephant with it’s trunk raised (for luck).The stretchy bracelets will fit most wrists easily, and each can be worn alone for a ladylike and understated look, or in multiples for a more “boho” look. Another thing about these bracelets, and almost all of Lacey Ryan’s designs, is that while younger women will love their hip vibe and charming significance, more mature women will find them fun to wear and very appealing, too.
Since the items have some significance (E.g. good fortune, good luck, serenity, strength, just to name a few), I think it would be nice to wear a set for a special event such as graduation, or a casual wedding, to ensure love, luck, health, courage or happiness!!!! These would make nice gifts for your bridal party (mothers, too), and there are even some designs for men.
When you visit Lacey Ryan’s user friendly web site you’ll find a well edited collection of bracelets, delicate necklaces, you may want to buy and they will not disappoint in person when you actually see them. But for the small minority of people who just can’t deal with online purchasing, soon her designs will be available at select retailers throughout the country, too. On the web site you’ll see lots of individual bracelets that you can mix and match from pre-designed sets, or individual pieces, at prices ($20 – $200). These prices for semi-precious stones won’t completely blow you away. It’s an easy indulgence!
