We’ve been in love with all things sparkly since glitter met glue back in kindergarten. When we discovered charmandchain.com, a website selling costume jewelry from some favorite names and some new discoveries, we had one thought—somebody pinch us please!
|Founded by Alexandra Galgano, a former executive recruiter, Charm & Chain sells necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and more from Alexis Bittar, Erikson Beamon and Badgley Mischka, among others. Of the more than 500 pieces sold on the site, many are inspired by vintage collections while others are made with materials from Africa, India and Nepal.
We are hard pressed to name a favorite, but with neon and the 80s two of the hot fall fashion trends, you should check out “Memories of Red Rock Necklace,” a colorful choker by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels for $557. Galgano’s pick is a pair of Dori Csengeri earrings, hand-stitched and backed by leather for $290.
Given the floundering economy, Charm & Chain gives us girls a little glam for a lot less than fine jewelry—prices range from $20 to $1,200. Says Galgano, “As long as you feel good wearing it, that’s all that matters. But make a statement. And don’t be afraid to break the rules.”
