Off the Rack: Jewelry Inspired by Amarita Singh, Wendy Mink at Target




Right next to the Anna Sheffield for Target collection, I noticed an amazing albeit nameless collection that reminded me of the exotic, brightly colored jewelry by designer Amrita Singh. (I couldn't find any of these pieces online, so I took a couple pics for reference purposes.) The earrings above are just $14.99 and yet they have all the makings of pricier costume jewelry—beautiful colors, a unique, artsy design, solid craftsmanship, crystals that look like glass, not plastic. Seriously impressive.

There's also some gorgeous jewelry made of semi-precious gems and gold-filled and silver wire that reminded me of the work of jewelry designer Wendy Wink, marked by delicate clusters of beads adorning earrings and dangling as pendants from dainty chains. I'm not saying Target copied anyone, just sharing my impressions. You can also find similar designs on Etsy, or stores like Banana Republic, but it's good to know that you can find such, dare I say, impressive jewelry at Target, too.

I was just at Target to check out the Anna Sui collection (no luck for me) I didn't see this, but I spotted the Anna Sheffield jewelry. I found a lot of stuff that I liked, it's very soft and feminine. There are a few unique ones I spotted too like a trophy necklace.

I like Anna Sui's designs, they're so fresh. Especially the new stuff from the recent show in New York

Those first earrings are beautiful! Ok, ok, I'm going to Target today - we need umm ... paper towels! (I also need to find your ankle boots BB!)

Forgot to mention, Target also has these amazing cuff bracelets with big chunky gemstones on them (kinda like Alexis Bittar) for either $20 or $30. They looked like the real deal, amazing!
