Birthstone Charm Necklace Guide

Birthstone Charm Necklace Guide

Few pieces of jewelry help us embrace our personal style more than birthstone necklaces. These special crystal stone necklaces utilize one of the twelve gemstones that are associated with our birth months.

Do you resonate with or relate to your birthstone? If so, you’re going to love this guide that we have put together. Here we will discuss some of the properties of the different birthstones, the history behind these pieces of jewelry, and highlight our beautiful birthstone charm necklaces as well.

The Origins of Birthstones

The origins of birthstones can be traced back to ancient civilizations, such as the Babylonians, who believed that each gemstone was associated with a different planet and that wearing these gems would bring good luck and ward off evil.

The ancient Greeks also believed in the power of gemstones and associated them with specific times of the year and various spiritual figures.

The concept of birthstones as we know them today can be traced back to 18th-century Poland. It was during this time that gem traders began to promote the idea of wearing a specific gemstone based on one's birth month. This concept quickly gained popularity and spread throughout Europe and eventually to the United States.

The Meaning Behind Birthstones

What’s fun and interesting about wearing birthstone jewelry such as crystal stone necklaces is that the personalization factor goes beyond just coloration. Throughout the ages, each of these stones has taken on certain qualities, whether through folklore, historical events, or pop culture.

For instance, it’s almost impossible not to associate rubies with passion and love. Emeralds, in turn, are often associated with prosperity and luck. The history behind why each birthstone has taken on these qualities is surprisingly complex, but suffice to say that it is one of the best parts about wearing a birthstone necklace or similar piece of jewelry!

Here are all twelve birthstones and their popular meanings:

  • January: Garnet is said to symbolize friendship and trust, and is often associated with protection and healing.
  • February: Amethyst is said to symbolize calmness and tranquility, and is often associated with spirituality and wisdom.
  • March: Aquamarine is said to symbolize courage and protection, and is often associated with healing and good luck.
  • April: Diamond is said to symbolize purity and strength, and is often associated with eternal love.
  • May: Emerald is said to symbolize rebirth and renewal, and is often associated with love and prosperity.
  • June: Pearl is said to symbolize purity and innocence, Moonstone is said to symbolize intuition and inner wisdom, Alexandrite is said to symbolize creativity and self-expression.
  • July: Ruby is said to symbolize passion and power, and is often associated with love and wealth.
  • August: Peridot is said to symbolize rebirth and renewal, and is often associated with prosperity and good luck.
  • September: Sapphire is said to symbolize wisdom and truth, and is often associated with loyalty and love.
  • October: Opal is said to symbolize hope and innocence, Tourmaline is said to symbolize balance and grounding.
  • November: Topaz is said to symbolize strength and wisdom, Citrine is said to symbolize abundance and prosperity.
  • December: Turquoise is said to symbolize friendship and protection, Zircon is said to symbolize wisdom and wealth, Tanzanite is said to symbolize spiritual insight and awareness.

Why Birthstone Jewelry is the Perfect Way to Show Your Personality

There is truly something special about having a gemstone that kind of represents us in some way, even if it is only cultural or steeped in tradition. While it doesn’t hold true for everyone, many of us really resonate with our particular birthstones and feel connected to them in some way.

When it comes to birthstone charm necklaces in particular, these are easy to incorporate into outfits for a unique look that really aligns with our personal styles. Here are some tips:

Choose a Birthstone Necklace That Suits Your Style

When it comes to selecting a birthstone necklace, there are various options available. You can choose a necklace that features your birthstone prominently, or you can go for a more subtle look, such as with our dainty birthstone charm necklaces. If you prefer a minimalistic look, a dainty birthstone necklace like this will be perfect for you. On the other hand, if you prefer bold pieces, you can opt for a statement birthstone necklace.

Layering Birthstone Necklaces

One of the most popular ways to wear birthstone charm necklaces is by layering them with other chains and dainty necklaces. Layering necklaces can add depth to your look and also help to complement your birthstone charm necklace.

Pairing Birthstone Necklaces with Necklines

When it comes to pairing birthstone necklaces with necklines, it's essential to consider the length of the necklace and the color and style of the top you’re wearing. If you're wearing a V-neck or a scoop neck top, a long birthstone necklace will work well. It will draw attention to the neckline and add some sparkle to the outfit. If you're wearing a high neckline, a shorter birthstone necklace will be perfect. It will sit nicely on your collarbone and complement your outfit.

Depending on which birthstone is yours, you will want to select colors that don’t clash.

Matching Birthstone Necklaces with Earrings

If you're wearing a birthstone necklace, wearing similarly colored earrings is an easy way to create harmony with your look. If you're wearing a statement birthstone necklace, it's best to keep your earrings simple. You can opt for studs or small hoops. If you're wearing a dainty birthstone necklace, you can choose statement earrings to add some pop to your outfit.

These 3 Tips Will Transform Your Boutique

These 3 Tips Will Transform Your Boutique

Wondering how you can help your boutique stand out this year? If you want more foot traffic and sales in your retail store, these tips are sure to help.

Below we’ll outline some guidance on sourcing high-quality wholesale boutique jewelry, how to layout your store, and more.

1.Upgrade Your Jewelry Selection

Even if your boutique’s primary focus is clothing or shoes, an attractive collection of delicate jewelry could be exactly what you need to set your store apart.

The right jewelry pieces are the perfect complement to stylish and trendy clothing items, and work great as ways to upsell and cross-sell. Jewelry displays placed artfully in high traffic areas of your store could really help boost your store’s overall revenue, while also creating a dynamic element to the atmosphere of your store as well, something we’ll go into more detail about below.

Here are some great wholesale boutique jewelry suggestions that you can find right here at Honeycat Jewelry:

delicate mood rings

Mood Rings

What better way to get some attention on your boutique than to offer a modern twist on an old favorite? Our delicate mood rings come in three varieties (Mini, Solar, and Signet style), and are perfect for shoppers looking for something a little offbeat and whimsical that will still go with most outfits.

Everyday Necklaces and Chains

Who doesn’t need a cute everyday necklace or two to wear out? We have an impressive collection of different dainty necklaces to choose from, including box chain necklaces, chain choker necklaces, charm necklaces, and more. Plenty of variety to keep your shoppers coming back for another look!

Earring Essentials

Another surefire hit would be to include some of our simple yet striking hoop earrings in your boutique. Our delicate earrings come in a variety of different sizes and styles, which would look great on display in any store. Crystal baguette hoops, crossover hoops, and double hoops are all popular options that are currently available and on-trend!

2. Work on the Vibe

This is an underrated part of cultivating a boutique that shoppers keep coming back to. At the end of the day it’s all about creating a memorable experience, something shoppers will resonate with and that will leave a lasting impression.

delicate mood rings

The products you offer are only one part of the equation. The “vibe” is such an underrated aspect of creating a brand that people connect with. You want people to feel a certain way when they enter your boutique.

Creating a great atmosphere within your store relies on a combination of decorative accents, proper layout, and presentation.

Take your layout for instance. How many times have we entered a boutique only to feel either lost as to where anything is, or hemmed in because the place is crowded and doesn’t have clear foot paths? These little elements matter, because if it’s one thing shoppers don’t like to be, it’s frustrated.

Help make the shopping experience better by being conscious of where you place your products. Create a natural flow or path for your shoppers to travel, and leave plenty of space in certain areas where customers are more likely to need it, such as near the checkout counter.

Think of creative ways to display small items (such as boutique jewelry!) so that they are at eye level with the shoppers. No one wants to bend down to the floor just to view a ring! Counter displays are a great option for small jewelry pieces because they ensure that customers will take note during the course of shopping.

3. Customer Service is a Must

Every store owner should know the value of treating their customers with respect and care. However, there are probably ways you can improve upon your level of service and make the shopping experience that much more meaningful for everyone who enters your boutique.

Start by making sure you go out of your way to greet your shoppers and offer them help in a friendly manner. This is retail 101, but it’s surprising how many stores still don’t take this to heart. Your shoppers should feel welcomed and at ease, and if they need assistance they should know that it’s right at hand.

Next consider adding incentives to the shopping experience. BOGO sales are always popular - you can rotate different sales depending on the day of the week or make them seasonal instead. Create a rewards program or throw in some free goodies if shoppers subscribe to your email list. You could also try running giveaways on your social media channels and advertise these promotions prominently within your store.

Now’s The Time to Transform Your Boutique

Did you enjoy these tips? With just a few simple adjustments, it’s easy to make any boutique stand out.

If you are interested in adding some stylish boutique jewelry to your store’s selection, we recommend exploring our website and looking through the variety of different everyday jewelry pieces we offer. Everything from charm necklaces to essentials such as stud earrings and gold cuff bracelets, you are sure to find something to add to your store this year.

Layering and Styling With Dainty Necklaces

Layering and Styling With Dainty Necklaces

Adding an extra layer to your ensemble is not just limited to your clothing; you can also do the same with your jewelry. When it comes to women's fashion, one of our favorite looks is to layer several dainty necklaces on top of one another, and it just so happens that the “layered look” is growing in popularity.

While there’s no denying that this is a cute style anyone can adopt, there are some complications that arise when wearing multiple necklaces at once. Dainty necklaces frequently becoming entangled with one another is the most typical issue, but you also might struggle with chain lengths and how to make your layered jewelry look just right.

If you're wondering how to wear multiple necklaces at once without them becoming tangled together, this article is for you! We’ll highlight the benefits of using necklace extenders as well as a few rules of thumb for wearing several necklaces at once.

What Exactly Are Necklace Extenders?

Varying necklace lengths are normal, especially if you own a wide variety of different necklaces from different brands or in different styles. This isn’t usually an issue until you need to change the length of a necklace in order to make it fit a certain outfit or pair well with another necklace.

You can easily add length to any necklace with the help of a necklace extender, which is a small removable chain extension. A necklace extender is the only necklace accessory you'll ever need for this, as it can be easily attached to and detached from any of your existing chain necklaces.

The reliable necklace extender chain is the key to the correctly proportioned lengths of any of our signature necklace stacks. For instance, the length of our Milky Way Disc Chain Necklace may be adjusted from a choker style (14" - 17.5") to a more relaxed, lower position below the collarbone to accommodate a wide range of neck and breastbone lengths.

With the help of our dainty necklace extenders, you can start mixing and matching your favorite necklaces without fear of getting a cluttered or haphazard look. Here are a few tips for perfecting your layered look:

Layer Necklaces with Various Lengths

Choose chains of varying lengths so that you may layer them effectively. Pairing a shorter necklace with a longer one is not only a stylish choice but also keeps the chains from becoming tangled up.

There are no strict limits on the number of necklaces you can wear at once, so feel free to experiment. Even if you don't have necklaces of various lengths, you can easily modify their lengths by purchasing one of our necklace extenders. If you want to keep your necklaces from getting tangled up with each other, this is the easiest solution.

Lay Them Apart

The distance between the chains on your chest is the most important factor to take into account while attempting to wear layered necklaces.

Necklace spacing should be adjusted according to the dress or neckline. Separating the necklaces further apart is preferable. Chains are unlikely to become tangled up with each other if there's adequate room between them.

If you are wearing more than one pendant or locket, it’s best to space them at least an inch apart otherwise it could look crowded. With simple dainty chains or charm necklaces, you can easily stack them closer together or even nearly on top of one another, however the more spaced they are the less chance of any entanglement happening, and generally it will look better too.

The Importance of Owning Several Necklace Extenders

Dainty Necklace extenders will become your new best friend if you ever find yourself in need of a little extra length in a necklace or want to experiment with new layering techniques. Perfect for extending a choker chain that's too short for your comfort or a necklace that doesn't reach quite high enough when worn with a particular top, these are simply essential to have in your collection so that all of your necklaces will be as adaptable as possible.

Also, this is the most convenient method for personalizing your jewelry collection. If you want to stack two delicate necklaces that complement each other but they fall at the same point on your neckline, simply attach an extender to one of them and you’re good to go!

necklace extender

How Do You Know Which Necklace Extension to Buy?

Our gold jewelry extenders make it so that any extensions you use would be completely invisible with your gold or rose gold necklaces. When it comes to plated necklaces, it doesn't matter what the base metal is because our perfect extenders are composed of gold plating.

All of our necklace extender sets complement necklaces made of any karat of solid gold and were designed specifically for use with our wide selection of dainty jewelry pieces. Using our adjustable necklace extenders ensures the smoothest possible transitions between links.

If you’re thinking about getting into the layering world, take a look at the different everyday necklaces we have available here and pick up a few extenders. In no time you will be able to put together a variety of cute and unique looks for any occasion!

The Origins and Benefits of Mood Jewelry

The Origins and Benefits of Mood Jewelry

Mood jewelry is a unique type of jewelry that changes color in response to the wearer's emotional state. It has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to express themselves more through the accessories they wear. 

In this article, we will explore the origins and benefits of mood jewelry and why mood rings are one of our personal favorites here at Honeycat Jewelry!

Fascinating Origins of Mood Jewelry

Mood jewelry has been around for over 40 years, and its origins can be traced back to the 1970s. The first mood ring was invented by Joshua Reynolds and Maris Ambats in 1975. They used a special thermochromic material that changes color based on the wearer's body temperature, which is said to be directly related to their emotional state.

The mood ring was introduced to the public and quickly became a popular fashion trend. The rings were marketed as a way to "read" the wearer's mood and were often sold with a chart explaining the different colors and their supposed meanings. For example, a black ring was said to indicate a calm and relaxed mood, while a red ring indicated excitement or passion.

For a time these rings were one of the most followed trends, as even many popular TV stars and icons were showing them off. Although this popularity waned throughout the 2000’s, they are making a comeback as more people are interested in jewelry that speaks to their unique tastes and personalities.

How to Read Your Mood Jewelry

While they aren’t exactly a scientific tool by any means, a well-made mood ring can certainly act as a relatively good judge of someone’s overall feelings or mood. This is what adds a bit of magic to wearing them, as the rings tend to “reveal” the wearer’s emotions rather than confirm them.

To read a mood ring, you will need a chart that explains the different colors and the meanings behind them. Here is a general guide to interpreting the colors of a mood ring:

  • Black: This color is said to indicate a calm and relaxed mood.
  • Gray: This color is said to indicate a neutral or indecisive mood.
  • Blue: This color is said to indicate a relaxed or peaceful mood.
  • Green: This color is said to indicate a balance or neutral mood.
  • Yellow: This color is said to indicate a happy or excited mood.
  • Purple: This color is said to indicate a romantic or sensual mood.
  • Red: This color is said to indicate an excited or passionate mood.

Keep in mind that these interpretations are not necessarily always accurate and that the colors of a mood ring may change for reasons other than the wearer's emotional state. The ring may also change colors slowly over time, so it is important to observe the color changes over a period of time to get a better sense of the wearer's mood.

This is part of what makes a mood ring so fun in our opinion. Your ring might seem relatively dormant all day and then all of a sudden go orange or red when you least expect it - what could it mean? Interpreting the colors of your mood ring to see if they match up with how you feel is half the fun of wearing one.

Our Mood Rings at a Glance

Here at Honeycat Jewelry, we offer 3 distinct styles of mood rings, each suited for different aesthetics.

Mini Mood Rings

If you love the look of delicate jewelry, our mini mood rings are the choice for you. Featuring a thin band and classic design, this is the option you want to go with if you want the mood jewelry experience but prefer understated jewelry options.

Perfect for layering with other delicate rings!

Solar Mood Rings

This mood ring features a slender band and petite stone, surrounded by a distinctly attractive bezel. Our Solar Mood Ring works well as a standalone piece or as a compliment to other rings you might want to wear. Either way it’s a beautiful ode to the classic 90’s mood rings we know and love.

Signet Mood Rings

For an even more striking look, our signet-style mood rings are ideal if you really want to make a statement. Designed with a dainty yet bold “signet” ring style, these mood rings have a much larger profile than the previous two, making it the best option if you want it to stand out in your ensemble.

Why Mood Jewelry?

We’re all looking for those perfect jewelry pieces that blend right in with our preferred style yet still promote our individuality. Pieces that we can connect with and that have some meaning behind them.

Mood jewelry really fits this intention perfectly. What better way to showcase your personal style with a visible look into your emotions? Mood rings are a fun way to add a bit of mystique to your appearance while emphasizing your uniqueness. No two mood rings will look the same all the time when worn by different people. This adds such a playful element to any outfit and can be a great conversation starter as well.

If you think a modern mood ring would look great on you, take a look at our selection and find the one that matches your style! We also have a fantastic assortment of other delicate rings and everyday jewelry pieces you might want to try as well.

Everyday Jewelry 2023 Fashion Trends

Everyday Jewelry 2023 Fashion Trends

2023 is in full swing and the latest fashion trends have made themselves known. From oversized leather jackets to sheer crop tops, the “it” clothing items are all over the place when it comes to aesthetics and style.

In order to ensure that your jewelry matches EVERY outfit you wear this year, we put together this helpful guide. We’ll highlight some of the current trends and some of the jewelry pieces we have in our collection that would be a perfect fit!

When it comes to everyday jewelry, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, it’s important to consider the occasion you’re dressing for. If you’re heading to the office, you’ll want to choose pieces that are more professional. On the other hand, if you’re going out for the night, you can choose something a bit more daring.

Once you’ve decided on the occasion, it’s time to start looking for pieces that will match your style. Whether you’re into classic pieces or something a bit more modern, there’s something for everyone. Here at Honeycat Jewelry, we offer a wide variety of pieces that are perfect for any occasion. From delicate rings to bold necklaces, we have something for everyone.

When it comes to wearing jewelry, it’s important to keep in mind that less is often more. If you’re looking to make a statement, choosing one or two pieces is usually enough. If you’re looking to add a subtle touch of sparkle to your look, a few simple pieces can go a long way.

Cargo Pants

Yes, cargo pants are back! And you know what that means — pockets, pockets, pockets! 😊 It’s great to finally have pockets for our makeup, wallet, keys, and everything else we find ourselves bringing everywhere. But these aren’t just any cargo pants. The cargo pants in 2023 are sleek, colorful, and made with high-end material.

With such bulky and vibrant pants, you’ll want to style your cargo pants with a sleeker and more subtle top. This means a dark, loose sweater, a black crop top, or a tight, tan body con shirt. Then you’ll want to wear some simple earrings to make sure everything is balanced.

Cargo Pants

Everyday Jewelry to Wear:

Bestie Ear Cuffs: These may be simple, but adding an ear cuff will give you an edge and spice up your aesthetic. This is the perfect balance to a pair of cargo pants, giving you a tough look while still maintaining a feminine touch.

Hera Greek Hoops: These geometric hoops will give your cargo pants an urban aesthetic that’s stylish and fun. While they have a fun pattern, these earrings are still small enough to not become the star of the show.

Sheer Clothing

Sheer clothing is in! No matter your size or shape, sheer clothing will make you look bold and sexy. This could mean a sheer black top with a colorful bra showing underneath, a sheer skirt with a cheeky bottom peeking through, or even a sheer jacket, allowing you to show your entire outfit! This look has already been made popular by celebrities all over the red carpet.

An eye-popping sheer article of clothing means you want to add some balance with a heavy duty coat or a pair of mom jeans. The juxtaposition will give off a sporty, street vibe that will make you look confident from head to toe.

Cargo Pants

Everyday Jewelry to Wear:

Chain Necklace: Draw attention to your sheer top with a bold chain necklace. This high quality silver necklace will help create that edgy look you’re going for.

Starling Bracelet: What’s great about this bracelet is that it’s super fun and flirty. With its star shaped charms, this bracelet will give you a layer of cute so you look a lot more approachable and quirky while wearing your bold outfit.

Denim Tops

When you hear “denim” you probably think of jeans. I mean, us too. But in 2023, denim can mean a dress, a jumper, or a shirt. Denim has been reimagined! You’re going to see people wearing dark denim everywhere. The look is more subtle and fashionable than in the past, like a denim mini dress with prim white buttons or a loose denim shirt paired with a flowy pair of pants for a relaxed model-esque look.

You’ll want to find a variety of soft materials to pair with a denim top or dress. This will give you that laid back look the runway has been aiming for. Denim can have a bit of a rough look thanks to its sharp edges, but the right jewelry can help balance it out.

Cargo Pants

Everyday Jewelry to Wear:

Bar Necklace: Since denim is so aggressive, it can really help to have this delicate necklace dangling down your chest. It’s the perfect necklace to add a soft touch to your denim look.

Wishing Crystal Hoop Earrings: These dainty hoops have a gemstone at the bottom. You can choose from a large list including opal, green jade, purple amethyst, and aquamarine. Adding a beautiful gemstone to your hoops will make you look one with nature, like you just came back from a glamping trip or a music festival.

Shiny Material

When you think of a shiny, silver dress, you probably think of a very fancy evening event. But in 2023, shiny silver clothing is meant for work or daytime activities. The key is to match the shiny piece of clothing with a very relaxed piece of clothing. You’ve probably seen models wearing a stunning wrap-around silver skirt with a plain old cotton tank top. Metallic trousers are another great option, which can be paired with a dark blouse or dress shirt.

Cargo Pants

Everyday Jewelry to Wear:

Mood Ring: If you want to keep shiny, silver clothing casual, consider some fun jewelry like a mood ring. This everyday jewelry will keep you looking playful and relaxed.

Bamboo Cuff: A loose cuff paired with a loose metallic shirt would give off “I’m on a tropical vacation, don’t bother me” vibes. This is a great addition to any outfit that you want to look sophisticated yet down to earth.

Did you enjoy our suggestions? If you need a little more inspo, take a look around the rest of our jewelry collections. We have an incredible selection of everyday jewelry pieces that will help you take on today’s trends while remaining true to your individual style!

A Practical Woman’s Guide to Simple Jewelry

A Practical Woman’s Guide to Simple Jewelry

Jewelry doesn’t have to be flashy! If you want to add a pop of color or fun to your outfit in a subtle way, you can add a piece of simple jewelry. This can range from small hoop earrings, understated rings, or even delicate necklaces.

Here is your guide to some of the best simple jewelry for any occasion!

Why we love simple jewelry

Simple jewelry, also known as minimal jewelry, is characterized by its clean lines, uncluttered design, and understated presence. These pieces are often made from a single material, such as gold or silver, and feature a minimal number of stones or embellishments. They are designed to be versatile and easy to wear, making them perfect for everyday wear or for layering with other jewelry.

One of the main advantages of simple jewelry is its sheer versatility. These pieces can be worn with a variety of outfits, from casual to formal, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. They are also easy to mix and match, allowing the wearer to create a unique and personalized look that speaks to them. Simple jewelry is also perfect for layering, as it can be paired with other pieces to create a more complex and dynamic look.

Another benefit of simple jewelry is its overall timelessness. These pieces are not trend-dependent and can be worn for many years without looking dated. They are classic and can be passed down through generations. Quality simple jewelry pieces like ours are also made from high-quality materials, such as gold or silver, which can withstand the test of time.

Examples of Popular Minimalist Jewelry

You may already love simple jewelry and not even know it. We love these kinds of pieces because they are often the backbone of so many great styles and outfits, many of which have endured decade after decade.

For instance, one of the most popular forms of simple jewelry is the stud earring. These small, delicate earrings are perfect for everyday wear and can be worn with a variety of hairstyles. They are also easy to mix and match, allowing the wearer to create a personalized look.

Another popular form of simple jewelry would be delicate pendant necklaces. These necklaces feature a single, simple pendant on a thin chain, making them perfect for layering or just wearing alone.

Both of these pieces are a great example of the impact that simple jewelry can have on your wardrobe. They aren’t quite “statement pieces” but can have a similar kind of impact because the right ones truly lend a lot of beauty to just about any look.

Best women’s simple jewelry to try

Are you looking to start your own collection of simple jewelry or give your favorite outfits a little flair? You can start right here!

Our store has a great selection of simple jewelry pieces to choose from, with unique qualities such as customizable charm bracelets and mood rings. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started:

Mini Shell Stud Earrings

Does the sea resonate with you? Shells have been used throughout history as a symbol in many different cultures and traditions, and are still a popular option today in jewelry.

We think these understated studs are the perfect way to add personality to a wide variety of outfits. They embody the purpose behind simple jewelry, which is to remain minimalist yet carry enough character to make a real difference in the way you look and feel.

Mini Shell Stud Earrings

Star Locket Necklace

Another favorite of ours, this simple locket has a magical appearance that really stands out despite being rather dainty.

Here are a few benefits of locket necklaces and why adding on to your wardrobe is not a bad idea:

  • Sentimental value: Locket necklaces hold sentimental value as they can be used to hold something that matters to you. They can serve as a reminder of a special person or moment in one's life.
  • Personalization: Locket necklaces can be personalized with a photograph or lock of hair, making them a unique and special piece of jewelry.
  • Emotional comfort: Locket necklaces can provide emotional comfort, as they can serve as a reminder of a loved one. They can also be used as a way to keep a loved one close, even when they are physically far away.
  • Versatility: Locket necklaces can be worn on different occasions, they can be dressed up or down depending on the event, and they can be paired with different kinds of outfits, making them versatile.

Make a Spell Necklace

Charm necklaces are useful pieces of jewelry that not only carry aesthetic value, but might bring you a little luck too 😉

Our “Make a Spell” dainty charm necklace is customizable with various letters, birthstones, and meaningful symbols. While you might think that a bunch of different charms would make a piece feel bulky, that is not the case here! We took careful consideration in the design of this necklace in order to make sure it remained practical, minimalist, and pretty.

Our Complete Guide to Wearing Rings

Our Complete Guide to Wearing Rings

When it comes to simple jewelry, one of the easiest accessories to slip on is a cute, dainty ring. This will instantly add a touch of shimmer to your hand and outfit.

In this guide, you’ll find everything you need to know about rings, including how to find your ring size, and the perks of wearing adjustable rings as well. We cover it all below. 

How to find your ring size

Determining the correct ring size for a finger can be a bit tricky, but it's important to get it right so that the ring fits comfortably and doesn't fall off or become too tight. The easiest way is to use a reusable ring sizer to determine your ring size. If you don’t have one, here are the steps you can follow to determine the correct ring size:

  1. Measure the circumference of the finger using a piece of string or a strip of paper. Wrap the string or paper around the base of the finger and mark the point where the two ends meet.
  2. Measure the length of the string or paper using a ruler or tape measure. This will give you the circumference of the finger in millimeters.
  3. Use a ring size chart to convert the circumference to a ring size. Ring size charts are widely available online or you can ask a jeweler for a copy.
  4. Keep in mind that fingers can fluctuate in size due to factors such as temperature, bloating and humidity.

Note: If you're buying a ring as a gift and don't know the recipient's ring size, you can try using a ring that they already own as a guide. Simply place the ring on a ring size chart and find the corresponding size.

Alternatively, you can ask a jeweler to measure the recipient's finger for you. This is usually a quick and simple process that can help ensure you get the correct size.

Don’t know your ring size? Try an adjustable ring!

An adjustable ring is a type of ring that can be adjusted to fit different finger sizes. This can be useful if you don't know the exact size of a finger, or if you want to be able to wear the ring on different fingers without thinking twice about whether it will fit.

There are several different types of adjustable rings. Some adjustable rings have a small gap in the band that can be opened or closed to adjust the size. Others have a band that can be bent slightly to fit the finger. Still others have a sliding mechanism that allows the band to be expanded or contracted to fit the finger.

They are often more affordable than traditional rings because they do not need to be custom-made to fit a specific finger size. We have a gorgeous collection of adjustable rings that come in an abundance of different styles to match your aesthetic and every outfit.

Keep in mind that adjustable rings may not fit as snugly or securely as traditional rings, and they may not be suitable for wearing all the time. However, they can be a convenient and cost-effective option for everyday wear that are fun to mix and match, and that can compliment statement pieces.

collection of adjustable rings

Pick the best adjustable ring

When choosing an adjustable ring, there are a few factors to consider to ensure you get the best one for your particular tastes:

Material: Adjustable rings can be made of a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. Consider which material will best suit your needs and preferences. (Ours come in a variety of different materials, such as gold, rose gold, and silver!)

Quality: As with any piece of jewelry, the quality of the adjustable ring can vary. Look for rings that are made of high-quality materials and are well-constructed to ensure they will last.

Comfort: An adjustable ring should fit comfortably on the finger. Look for rings that have a smooth, comfortable fit and that are not too tight or too loose.

Style: Adjustable rings come in a wide range of styles, so you should be able to find one that fits your personal taste. Consider the type of jewelry you typically wear and choose a ring that will complement your style.

Price: Adjustable rings are often more affordable than traditional rings, but the price can still vary. Consider your budget and look for a ring that offers a good value for the price.

Reviews: Reading reviews from other customers can be a helpful way to gauge the quality and fit of an adjustable ring. Look for reviews that mention the comfort, durability, and overall satisfaction with the ring.

Cute Jewelry Trends to Watch in 2023

Cute jewelry trends are a fun and easy way to add some personality and style to your outfits.

Whether you prefer dainty, minimalist pieces or bold, statement pieces, there is a wide range of cute jewelry options to choose from.

One of the benefits of these trends is that they can be easily dressed up or down, making them versatile enough to wear in a variety of settings. Additionally, cute jewelry can be a great way to express your personal style and add a touch of whimsy to your outfits.

Whether you're looking to make a statement or just add a little something extra to your look, cute jewelry is worth exploring. In this article we’ll take a look at some of the most popular anticipated trends of the year and different jewelry pieces you might want to consider adding to your collection!

Top Cute Jewelry Trends to Look For This Year

  • Trend #1: Dainty Layered Necklaces. This trend involves wearing multiple thin, delicate necklaces of varying lengths to create a chic, bohemian look. What’s great about the layered look is that it really works for a wide variety of styles and occasions. Depending on the specific jewelry choices you use, this trend can easily be dressy and formal or simply a cute everyday look.
  • Trend #3: Statement Rings. Bold, eye-catching rings are a great way to add some personality to your jewelry collection. Choose gold rings with crystals or something more subdued such as our wraparound snake rings.
  • Trend #4: Chokers. Chokers have been a popular trend for a while now, and they show no signs of going out of style. If they aren’t your thing, try a delicate lariat necklace instead to achieve a similar effect.
  • Trend #5: Midi Rings. These rings, which are worn on the middle finger or below the knuckle, add a trendy touch to any outfit.
  • Trend #6: Layered Bracelets. Mixing and matching multiple bracelets, from bangles to beaded styles, is a fun way to accessorize. Delicate bracelets are a simple way to really up the style factor regardless of the occasion, and are easy to pair with other kinds of jewelry without risk of clashing.
  • Trend #7: Mood Rings: The 90’s are coming back in full force, and with this shift in fashion comes the return of an old favorite: mood rings! These beautiful rings offer a dash of mystery and elegance without being as bold as some larger crystal rings. We have three different styles of mood rings, including our delicate solar style which is easy to pair with other rings!

Create a Unique Look

Mixing and matching these cute jewelry trends can help you create stylish and unique outfits. Here are a few tips on how to mix and match these trends:

  • Choose a focal point: When mixing and matching jewelry, it's important to choose one or two pieces that will be the focal point of your outfit. This could be a bold statement ring or a chunky necklace.
  • Balance is key: Make sure to balance your outfit by pairing more understated pieces with bolder ones. For example, if you're wearing a statement necklace, consider pairing it with minimalist stud earrings.
  • Mix textures and materials: Mixing different textures and materials can add interest to your outfit. For example, try pairing a beaded bracelet with a metallic bangle or a leather choker with a pearl necklace.
  • Experiment and have fun: The most important thing is to have fun and experiment with different combinations until you find what works for you. Don't be afraid to try new things and step outside of your comfort zone.

How to Elevate Your Day-to-Day Style for Less

How to Elevate Your Day-to-Day Style for Less

Most people are under the impression that having great style on a day-to-day basis is a costly endeavor; that it costs a lot of money to be fashion-forward. We’re here to tell you that that simply isn’t true.

For one thing, fashion and style are two completely different concepts–being fashionable and subscribing to the latest trends has little to do with cultivating a timeless personal style. Here are a few things that you can do to level up your look–all without having to make any major investments:

Accessorize thoughtfully

You want to have a mix of trendy everyday jewelry to add a bit of color and interest to your outfits, as well as staple pieces that you can and will want to wear daily. High-quality affordable jewelry isn’t at all hard to find–our catalog here on Honeycat Jewelry is full of them! We specialize in affordable jewelry that’s elevated yet minimalistic, from playful hoop earrings to dainty stackable rings that will go well with any ensemble.

affordable jewelry

Jewelry is an investment, so make sure you’re making wise ones. All of the pieces here on our site are thoughtfully crafted for the modern woman who wants to add a touch of sparkle to her day. Browse our extensive collection of offerings and consider a bauble or two from our sophisticated selections.

Prioritize proper fit

One of the biggest reasons why you may still look sloppy even when you’re dressed to the nines in designer items has to do with how clothes fit you. Fit matters; it dictates how your clothes look on you. However, it isn’t something that’s immediately apparent, especially if you get your clothes off the rack.

Fortunately, there are a couple of easy ways to make even off-the-rack clothing look and feel better on you. Your undergarments have a lot to do with how clothes fit, so make sure that you’re getting your bras fitted properly and that you’re also replacing them and your undergarments regularly.

Another easy way to make ready-made clothes look a lot better on you is to have them tailored to your body size and shape. Everyone’s bodies are different, and clothing manufacturers can’t take everybody’s proportions into account. This is great if you have an average size and build; otherwise, it’s in your best interests to take matters into your own hands. Alterations don’t cost much, and you can have them easily done at your local tailor’s. They can help you make sure that no article of clothing is too tight, too loose, too long, or too short on you.

Purge your closet

Holding on to dated items in your closet doesn’t just take up valuable space; it may also be influencing the way you dress yourself on the daily. Items that don’t fit well, are out-of-date, or worn have no place in your wardrobe, so it’s best to get rid of them.

Worn and tattered articles of clothing, particularly, can only bring your style down. Consider taking a weekend to reorganize your wardrobe and edit them out of your closet. Meanwhile, pieces that no longer fit you can be given new life if you give them away or sell them to a consignment store, where they can be better appreciated by someone else.

In that same vein, you’ll definitely want to hold on to classic items that are still in good shape that you love and fit you well. If you’ve gone up or down a size over the years, consider bringing these pieces to a tailor so that they can be refreshed and loved anew.

Celebrate the basics

Foundational pieces are articles of clothing, jewelry, and accessories that, well, make up the foundation of any wardrobe. These include t-shirts that fit well, versatile pairs of jeans, a couple of pieces of outerwear such as a blazer and a trench coat, delicate 14K gold jewelry pieces, and so on. If you’ll notice, these are the pieces you find yourself reaching for the most when you dress yourself in the morning.

Investing in great foundational jewelry pieces is an easy way to put together a cute fit without spending an arm and a leg. They don’t cost too much when you get them from the right retailers (or snag them on sale!), and you’ll always look more chic when you put them on.

Take good care of your things

Over time, jewelry and clothes will look worn and you’ll only look untidy wearing them – unless you care for your things properly! That’s why it’s always a good idea to read the care tags on your clothes and follow any specific instructions caring for your jewelry. It’s also a good idea to keep a close eye on your jewelry to make sure that there are no signs of wear such as scratches or stains.

Looking for new and trendy affordable jewelry pieces to add to your wardrobe, that you’ll love to wear on the daily? Browse through our collections now!
