Fabulous Handmade Designer
Gemstone Jewelry by Vandiva

Today we're dropping into VanDiva to see what's new! Angelika and Vanessa are the mother and daughter design team behind this fabulous handcrafted jewelry shop, and they've got a lot of new jewelry to share with us for spring so lets get started! There are a couple of Designer Bracelets that should be on your list of things to see here ... first, the lovely Larimar Nugget Bracelet. If you're familiar with this pretty blue Carribean gemstone, you already know its found in only one place - a single mine in the Dominican Republic. It truly is rare, and once the larimar is completely removed from the mine the supply will be gone forever. This bracelet features nice sized hand shaped nuggets that are simply linked together with sterling silver wire! VanDiva's She sells Seashells Paua Shell Charm Bracelet is a very pretty and flashy bracelet with iridescent Paua shell dangles. The irregularly shaped, multicolored shells have beautiful patterns. They dangle from a contemporary style sterling silver long and short cable bracelet you'll love! Browse through the Designer Earrings gallery next, where you'll find some really nice styles like the Endless Summer Dainty Sterling Silver Earrings - a pretty pair of earrings featuring multicolored glass beads in various sizes on three dangles - each a different length, for a very fashionable look. If you like gemstone earrings with big and bold beads, check out the red hot Sponge Coral Earrings or the Wave - Gemstone Earrings in Red! Summer fashion always includes bright white sportswear and casual clothing. Vandiva has an unique pair of earrings that will be a perfect match - their Mink Fur Earrings in White! Like natural gemstones? Have an affinity for crystals? If you do, you'll love VanDiva's amazing Amethyst Raw Cut Cluster Sterling Silver Earrings! These chunky, raw amethyst points were simply drilled and wire-wrapped for a very organic look. And if you prefer amethyst's cousin, the Citrine Raw Cut Cluster Sterling Silver Earrings are just fabulous! VanDiva's design talent shines in the Designer Necklaces gallery! It takes an artist to match color, size and shape in an eye pleasing way to create pieces that have balance and an attractive appearance, while maintaining comfort and wearability. These pieces have that and a lot more! The Wave Gemstone Necklace in Green is a bold and chunky gemstone necklace made with green toned gemstone beads and sterling silver components. If you like bright color the Easter Gemstone Necklace with colorful Jade Nuggets and Quartz Pendant could be for you! Made with jade and quartz that has been dyed in intense colors, this big and very bold necklace will certainly attract everyone's attention. It would be fabulous worn with a dark colored dress or sweater! Imagine a nice long necklace made with large sized gemstone beads in various shapes and colors - creamy white, yellow, red and orange ... well, you don't have to dream about it! The Summer Multi Gemstone Long Necklace is a fantastic necklace that could be your summer favorite! And of course - we all love a quick summer shower on a hot day! The very imaginative and cute Rain Cloud Sterling Silver Necklace is today's featured piece. I love this necklace! So cruise by VanDiva's shop today and check out everything this design team has in their showcase. You won't be disappointed so remember to bring your wallet - you'll want it all!
