What I wore: Top by Emma&Sam, Turban by BCBG, All Jewelry-Kundan Necklace/Bracelets/Rings-by Taara Jewelry.

Taara Jewelry designer Megha Jain is most inspired by her Indian roots. Looking back to the Mughal Empire, she creates works that emulate opulence and fantasy, reflective of the jewels worn by the Kings and Queens of the time. "Taara" comes for the word "sitara," meaning "stars" in Sandscript and each piece makes one feel just this way. Like a star. Like royalty. With stones sourced from India, more specifically the beautiful cities of Jaipur and Udaipur, each piece is unique, has an interesting story behind it and, not to mention, has a great healing power.

We've teamed up with Ms. Jain herself to offer you a chance to win a beautiful matching Taara Jewelry earring and necklace set.

Choosing a Diamond Bracelet with Anjolee




Diamonds are forever. And are a girl's best friend. So, when shopping for a diamond bracelet, it is important to choose the right one for you. We decided to team up with fine jewelry retailer, Anjolee, to present a tutorial about selecting the perfect diamond bracelet that suits your everyday life.

First, consider material. Diamond bracelets can be found in white gold, yellow gold, and platinum. Choose colors based on what you have and what you wear. Compliment your current wardrobe.
The design elements are what give diamond bracelets personality. Match your own personality, while also choosing something that is unique and will stand out. Elaborate or classic, you are choosing a diamond after all!
Next, think about carat weight. It is what defines the value of the diamond. The higher the carat, the higher the value.
Lastly, bracelet length is of importance. Measure your own wrist, but don't worry too much. There is comfort in knowing that bracelet lengths can be always be adjusted if you select the wrong size.

From vintage styles to simple tennis bracelets, Anjolee has quite the selection. They offer a wide variety of colors and style options for you to build your own diamond jewelry. With more on-site tutorials and a staff that has proven to be extremely helpful, Anjolee can guarantee that with their help, you will be well on your way to picking the right diamond for you.


Big thanks to Marla over at Anjolee for sending this tutorial our way!
