I'm Not a Jewelry Party Kinda Girl

But I did get my favorite earrings from Stella & Dot 

About a year ago, I was invited to a Stella and Dot party at my friend @katie_laine's house. This was my third or fourth jewelry party, but the first time I made a purchase. I never understood the thought process behind inviting someone to your home and expecting them to make a purchase - it makes me feel awkward. In this particular case, it was pressure-free. 

I sat in the kitchen and ate cheese dip while the other girls shopped. Just as our sales rep was finishing up, I noticed her earrings. I asked about her earrings and she informed me they were Stella and Dot. The fake "decco" drop earrings were lovely, reasonably priced and I bought them. One of the best purchases I've ever made, often times they are confused for being real (which is flatterig, but weird... I wish my budget allowed for ginormous diamonds). 

Tonight as I perused the Stella and Dot site, I found this rose gold snake ring. This ring resembles a rose gold, snake necklace I nearly purchased in Istanbul a few years back. I have not been able to rid myself of the memory of this necklace. I wish I purchased it, but I stupidly did not.  This "sidewinder" ring is rose gold plated with crystals. Likely not going to purchase this one... but will continue to look out for the snake pendent.
