Kenneth Jay Lane Tiger Bangles

White Tiger BangleBengal Tiger BangleCelebs such as Britney, Sarah JP, Mischa Barton, Jessica Simpson and Hilary Duff are all huge fans of Kenneth Jay Lane Jewellery. After spotting Mischa in his strawberry pendant earlier today I found these two tiger bracelets that I think are fabulous. Hilary Duff was recently spotted in the white tiger version so she obviously agrees!

The bracelets are extremely unique, I have not seen anything quite as detailed or realistic as these. I have seen similar bracelets using a snake which is the obvious choice due to the shape.

Both bracelets can be bought from and both cost $129. Other Kenneth Jay Lane beauties can also be found on this website.

Modern Heart Bangle & Pendant

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

by Paloma Picasso would add the final touch to a simple, stylish outfit. The round diamond sparkles, the sterling silver looks expensive and the heart is rounded to perfection. For £255 this is probably not something you’d wear everyday, but save for special occasions.

A matching heart pendant is also available if the bangle alone is not enough for you, but at £215 I think I’d rather have one or the other!

Sweetheart Necklines and Bangles
Top celebs Chloe Sevigny, Carrie Underwood, Nicole Richie, Eva Longoria and Paris Hilton all stepped out in gorgeous sweetheart neckline dresses complimented by stunning gold or silver bangles. My favourite dress has to be Nicole Richie’s, although it is quite plain it looks both elegant and stunning.

Onto the bangles… my personal favourite is the CZ Silver Bangle Set (top right). It is available at for $48 which includes all three. The bangles have oversize CZ stones and a matte silver finish, perfect for finishing off any evening dress or outfit.
