The Tribe Has Spoken

Hey Sammy,

I'm looking for some cool jewelry trends for the summer other than cheap-o Forever21 stuff that ends up turning brown after a few months.

Thank U!!<3

Hi Tangie,

I feel your pain, my friend. I have a rusty collection of ready to be tossed jewelry myself, comprised of two-finger rings, angel wing pendants, and other too-trendy styles that have risen and fallen during the past decade. I do, however, have a teacup and saucer on my vanity overflowing with timeless rings, trinkets and treasures that will never spoil or go out of style. What is the defining factor that has kept these baubles from being buried in the jewelry cemetery? They all cost more than $30.

You said it yourself, Tang, cheap-o jewelry isn't meant to last. It's meant to be worn today while the trend is hot. You get what you pay for, and when you pay next to nothing, you get next to nothing.

When I'm on the hunt for hip jewelry styles that are vintage, "in", and not designed to be thrown "out", I head where the celebs go, 1928 Jewelry.

The tribal jewelry trend is being spotted on starlets all across the summer music festival circuit, with unique indigenous inspired pieces that are as nostalgic as they are National Geographic, and as far as I'm concerned, they'll always have a place in your jewelry box.

My favorite piece is this T.R.U. Indonesian Arctic Pendant Tusk Necklace, featuring Swarovski crystals, semi precious stones, and a geometric design that will pair perfectly with any crop top and cut-off combo, for $68. I'm also loving T.R.U.'s Wax Linen Wrap & Charms Wire Bangle Bracelets accented with tiny horseshoe and feather charms. Wear them solo or piled up high with other bracelets and bangles for $48.

My last vintage pièce de résistance is the Azteca Chain Beaded & Shaped Owl Necklace. At $45, this copper and turquoise statement necklace is truly be-hoot-iful, with an intricate off-the-chain design fit for any Aztec princess.

xoxo,
