If you like the idea of customized jewelry but don't have time to make your own, check out the sweet little site called Mint Gems. The site offers dozens of great styles of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces, which are cute on their own but also come with a cool twist. For each style, you can select your choice of metal—either sterling silver or 14-karat gold—and choose from a variety of different crystals and stones. In some cases, you can also choose the length and the clasp. Better yet, Mint Gems is offering up to 60 percent off of some items until Nov. 15, so this stuff is really a great deal. Here are some of my favorite looks.
Falling Leaf Earrings, $86.80 reduced from $124, available with a choice of 18 stones and two metals here.
Berry Drop Necklace, $70.40 reduced from $88, available with a choice of 18 stones here.
To see the rest,
Heart Bracelet, $62.40 reduced from $78, available with a choice of four stones here.
Rope Chandelier Earrings, $83.20 reduced from $104, available with a choice of three stones here.
