Pearls in June..

Yes, another fabulous pearl necklace.. Why so many posts about pearls, you ask?
1. Pearls are the birthstone for the month of June
2. I love pearls, and it's my blog and my store, so there.

I was feeling incredibly nostalgic for the ocean this past week, and so I created this necklace, inspired by the sea :)

Triple strands of lush white coin pearls and sterling silver chain fashion this stylish and beautifully edgy necklace. Delicate Swarovski crystals and white pearls dangle off an etched sterling silver chain, while the luminous white coin pearls add that swanky touch.

Pearly Whites

Our newest pearl necklace is gorgeous - I almost want to get married again just so I can wear it (just kidding honey). Two strands of luminescent white keshi pearls are sprinkled with dazzling Swarovski crystals to style this fabulous pearl necklace.

Isn't it divine? The crystals are incredible - they reflect colors beautifully (they are not yellow I promise!). This necklace is complete with an adjustable sterling silver chain, and you are guaranteed to not only sparkle but feel oh-so-fabulous.

Lime Green and Silver

This necklace and bracelet set is smoking hot. Beautiful beads of sparkling green turquoise shine on a luxurious sterling silver chain to fashion this extra-long necklace. Our gorgeous bracelet features five beautiful matching beads of lime-green turquoise.

This summery necklace and bracelet will be sure to refine any outfit. Looks great with tropical fruity drinks and sun dresses.

Lush Boutique Video

Just made a video on Animoto called "Lush Boutique 3". Check it out!

Summer Colors

Summer just makes me happy. I love everything that reminds me it's summertime - farmer's markets, the smell of chlorine, sunshine, popsicles, flip flops, even the heat. But most of all, I love the colors of summer: blues, pinks, oranges, greens..

This necklace was inspired by the colors of summer: Rich sky-blue squares of turquoise and sterling silver beads hang by double strands of gorgeous chic pink coral beads.

(Sorry for the picture quality. I'm waiting on my new laptop to arrive and until then.. we are stuck with my ancient iBook G4 that refuses to load new pictures as of yesterday.)

Pretty Pearls

June is officially the month of weddings (I'm only guessing) and pearls are a classically chic way for a beautiful bride to glam up for the big day.

I love this bracelet and matching necklace (there are earrings too!). Delicate white coin pearls twinkle off a sterling silver chain in our ultra-chic version of the classic pearl charm bracelet and necklace.

I love the simplicity of the look - not too overdone (banish bridezilla) and classic enough that her future daughters will fight over it for their big day.

Citrine Sunshine

I have been in an all-out BATTLE with this bracelet for over 48 hours. First it was too short, then too long, the clasp wasn't right, you get the idea. I wanted it to be PERFECT...

And I outdid myself.

Isn't it gorgeous? Two strands of sparkling citrine sprinkled with 14kt gold-filled beads and finished with a 24kt gold-filled clasp.. it's breathtaking.

Turquoise Thursday

If you are the type of lady that likes to make an impressive statement without saying a word, then this necklace was made for you.

Huge nuggets of blue turquoise accented with sterling silver beads style this daring and impressive necklace.

What is fantastic about this heirloom quality piece of jewelry is that it can be worn year-round: turquoise is definitely not just a summer stone!

Delicious Pearls

Sorry for the language Mom, but this necklace is drop-dead SEXY.

Sensual midnight shell pearls are strung on silk cord and then individually hand-knotted in this gorgeous necklace. This chic necklace features grey, copper, midnight, olive and slate pearls.

Gorgeous, right?

(Etsy thinks so too... they handpicked this pearl necklace yesterday and featured it on their homepage.)

Pearls Continued..

You already know that pearls are a hot summer accessory, and we wanted to introduce to you our latest find:

The Stick Pearl Necklace

Isn't it fabulous? It has all the glamour of being a pearl, but with extra spice. We mixed ours up with small dainty round pearls and added a stylish and eye-catching sterling silver chain.

We love the beachy feel and chic look of this necklace - it goes great with big floppy hats or little black dresses.

How do you like your pearls? Leave a comment and let us know!

Not Your Granny's Pearls..

This weekend, Lush Boutique traveled to San Francisco for the International Gem & Jewelry Show. We stocked up on all the latest trends for summer, and are so excited to show them to you today!

We were absolutely loving the hot colors and sizes for pearl necklaces! Check out this necklace, our newest addition to the Lush Boutique online store:

Isn't it gorgeous? We loved the combination of colors and the oversized pearls. To top it all off, we hand knotted these massive pearls onto silk cord.. We're pretty classy like that.

Summer Staple

June is here, and summer is officially flirting with us. What's the hot new summer trend?


I just added this hot little necklace to Lush Boutique, and don't you dare put on those shorts and sandals without it!

Gorgeous beads of turquoise are hand strung and knotted on matching silk thread. This turquoise necklace is much more tame than some of our other pieces, so if you feel intimidated, don't be!

Fabulous Friday!

I love Swarovski crystals, but I've been a little timid to wear them.. Remember a few years ago when everyone was practically swimming in them? I would layer the bracelets on up to my elbows and always blinded my friends in direct sunlight. Thankfully, those days are over. The trend with Swarovski crystals now has a much more organic feel, and it is fabulous.

This bracelet dazzles without causing retina damage. It is just so dainty and sparkly!

These earrings are just to die for. The jewels are all wire-wrapped, which gives it that trendy handmade look while the clusters of crystals give it that I'm Completely Fabulous look.

This simple and elegant necklace is the dainty finale to our new crystal set. A duet of sparkling blue and topaz briolette crystals twinkle from a delicate etched sterling silver chain.

1st Sale Celebration!

Lush Boutique is very excited to announce we had our very first sale this morning!
Of course we went all out with a gift box and ribbons.. Sometimes I can't help myself.

But who wouldn't want to get this in the mail?

Turquoise Tears

There is a simple elegance about this necklace that I absolutely adore. Our oversized teardrop turquoise pendant is styled with an eye-catching chain to create the perfect accessory.

We aren't kidding when we say it will go with any outfit. Take a look.. it goes perfectly with what you are wearing right now.. right? We thought so.

Simply Stunning

There is so much to love about this necklace. A gorgeous mixture of luminous semi-precious stones are strung on silk cord and then individually hand-knotted to style this chic yet simple wardrobe staple.

Not for the faint of heart...

I'm warning you, this necklace is quite the showoff. Chunky beads of bright lime green turquoise mix with chips of blue turquoise to style our version of the trendy summer necklace.

Do you have the guts to wear it?


I L.O.V.E. this bracelet: sparkling sterling silver chain meets a dazzling canary yellow CZ drop. Just look at them - it's obvious they were made for each other.

I promise it's as fun to wear as it is to look at.

Turquoise Donuts

Don't let the name full you - this necklace is anything but a dainty pastry. Hefty chunks of delicious turquoise make this necklace the centerpiece of any outfit. Put it on and just wait for the compliments to come.

Green Pearls + Copper = Perfection

I have always loved pearls, but sometimes it's exciting to mix up a classic. In our version of THE pearl necklace for summer, double strands of green freshwater stick pearls sprinkled with Topaz Swarovski crystals hang from an antiqued copper chain.

Perfection? I think so.

Turquoise with a Lime Twist

I absolutely love this necklace. Turquoise is one of my favorite materials to work with, but it can make jewelry very bulky and heavy. By incorporating a silver plated chain, this necklace becomes a breeze to wear. It is so simple, yet so chic.

I'm in love.
