Designer Spotlight: Melinda Maria

I just discovered jewelry designer, Melinda Maria, whose designing philosophy is to create high quality jewelry that looks real but is actually costume jewelry.   She uses gold plated metals and semi-precious stones to give off a high-quality vibe.  Maria says, "The purpose of my designs is to make you feel beautiful, to bring people together and inspire compliments, a starting point between two strangers that might never have spoken unless a unique piece of jewelry struck a chord. The kindness and power of a compliment can make you feel more beautiful and confident than any material possessions you own."
Her jewelry is worn by many celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Vanessa Hudgens, Hayden Panettiere, and Jessica Alba.  E! Television has even given Maria the name "Hollywood's Bling Queen"!

Here are some of my favorite pieces:

Melted Stick Pod earrings with Ruby cz for $75

Worn by Julia Roberts and Selena Gomez


Full Moon and Stars Pod Cuff made from 18 karat gold-plate and emerald cz for $180 (There are rings to match)

Nikki Pennie Serpent Cuff with black and white diamond cz and emerald cz.  This ones $315 and my favorite bracelet! (There are snake rings and snake necklaces too!)


"The Pod Ring is one of my absolute favorites! It compliments every outfit and other piece of jewelry I put on." -Vanessa Hudgens.
