Hot Diamonds Butterfly charm

Hot Diamonds Butterfly charm - Amazon.comAs I mentioned in the previous post I got this charm as well because it was sold as a set. The Hot Diamonds 3 keys charm and Butterfly charm came with a necklace. I like butterfly design jewelry, although I am picky on the shape of the butterfly. It needs to be a bit soft and round like this one is, the more triangle-shaped winged ones look at bit hard to me. And when I think of butterflies you think of soft, light and delicate. This piece is very unique as it has one solid and one that is just an outline. Also, one is gold plated and the other is silver, which I think makes a great combination. Neither dominates the other color wise and in combination with the 3 keys its a great blend of silver and gold. You could use these charms on a bracelet, anklet, or maybe even on a key chain? They do have a good size clasp to be able to hook on many different things. Click here to buy it from

Hot Diamonds 3 Keys charm

Hot Diamonds 3 keys charm - Amazon.comI have seen many items from Hot Diamonds, but because they where silver I wasn't too interested in getting anything. Don't get me wrong I think they have wonderful items. But then one day on a flight I flipped through the in-flight magazine and saw this charm with the butterfly charm and a necklace and thought I would buy it and see. I also at the time was reading the book, The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth, so this had a great influence on me buying the piece because the book was talking about your keys to success. So, I got the piece to remind me of them and of course to see what kind of jewelry Hot Diamonds has. I really love the piece and wear it a lot, when I had first purchased it I wore it night and day for about a month straight, I still wear it just not all the time! It sure has stood the test of time, I give it a gentle wash with some jewelry cleaner and it sparkles like new. No complaints from me about silver jewelry, at least not about Hot Diamonds'.

Chopard Happy Beach Ladies Watch

Chopard Happy Beach Ladies Watch with Diamonds I have personally seen this watch in a jewelry store. And I was in awe! This watch is extremely high on my wish list. The pictures do not do it justice, it is way more beautiful in person. It shines and sparkles like a beautiful sporty gem. It was extremely comfortable and the face was not too large, just right. I have a large bone structure yet I have a hard time finding watches that don't jab my top part of my hand. And the rubber wrist band was just great, especially for me since I am allergic to nickel, this was perfect and made me want it even more! Click here to buy it from

Platinum Knotted Necklace

Platinum Knotted Necklace - I have purchased this necklace from This platinum necklace is just wonderful. You can wear it everyday or for that special occasion. I love wearing this necklace everyday. It is a very light weight necklace. It dresses up any outfit yet it is not screaming out like a jeweled necklace would. The necklace is dainty yet rugged, you don't feel like if you catch it on something that it will break. There are seven tiny knots that adorn the 1/8 inch wide chain. The length of 18 inches is a perfect length, especially for those T-Shirt and jeans days. The way the chain is woven, I find that it does not catch, twist, and get caught in my hair. The spring ring clasp makes it easy for taking it on and off.

Product Details:
Metal: 950 Platinum
Clasp: Spring ring clasp
Chain length: 18 inches
Width: 1/8 inch
Approximate weight: 6.1 grams
