As I was wandering the great streets of NYC the other day, I came upon a store that was selling jewelry at unbelievable prices. Granted some of these pieces may not look that expensive but I think others look like they cost more than what I paid for them. So here is the challenge I put towards you readers: The first person who correctly guesses how much I paid for each of these items wins one of the items (the winner can pick the item). Good Luck.

In my travels thru this gorgeous island I’ve found some pretty jewelry items that I thought I would share with all of you.
Some of the pieces I loved best I found in Marigot. Marigot is the capital of the French side of this island. In the
morning, on Wednesdays thru Saturday, many local people come into the
center of town to sell their products to the tourists who come off the
Cruise Ships. Some of the items, like the below jewelry, are handmade. These beautiful silver and colorful stone pieces were handmade by a cool local woman here on the island.
You know how I love unique jewelry and when I found these I just fell in love with them. Lemme know if you agree.
I found this site that features emerging indie designers from all over the world. I’m always on the look out for different items and new designers so this site was perfect for me. It is called unsungdesigners.com…lol. Here are some items from the site I liked:
Sometimes one simple little word can speak volumes! Or stack a couple of bands and put an extra spin on it: “genuine chingon!” “lucky rascal!” Choose the word or phrase that stirs your happy place. Sterling silver, hand-engraved.
Have a particular word you’d love to wear? Custom words–12 letters max–can be engraved for an extra $15.
Lucky says Ouvrez La Porte is “both proper and sexy”… Time Out NY calls the designer “a cross between Audrey Hepburn sophistication and Siouxsie Sioux irreverence”…and InStyle says it’s “affordable glamour.”
This sleeveless dress is constructed from black silk charmeuse with a pintucked bib of black floral lace. It has an alluring a-line shape that skims the body and falls mid-thigh. Scalloped lace adorns the bottom hem and arm holes, and velvet ribbon and lace trim the collar. This dress is unlined and has a back zipper closure.
This is a different take on a wrap dress. Different in design and also because it is made of 100% bamboo jersey, a naturally anti-bacterial and renewable resource.
Sheer dress coat is a beautiful addition to a dress or makes a simple slip dress a fab ensemble. Has 3/4 length sleeves. 100% silk organza; dry clean. Available in black (shown), grey or ivory.
