At Carat Studio you will find a selection of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that are stylishly simple.  Everything in the shop is made from either sterling silver, fine silver, 14K gold, or rose gold.  These delicate metals are timeless and perfect for every day wear.  Shop owner, Milana, began making jewelry in 2007, and it quickly became a new hobby for her.  She started participating in craft shows, so she could interact with her customers.  The response was great!  One customer mentioned to Milana that her designs made her feel better about herself.  That was all the inspiration Milana needed to continue creating new designs.  She opened her Etsy shop in 2011 and is able to distribute her jewelry all over the world.  Here are a few of my personal favorites!

 

Milana sent 3 pieces for me to review.  First up, I’m wearing these beautiful silver hoops.  These are very lightweight and the perfect size – not too big and not too small.  The hammered finish adds great texture & interest to the simple design.  I love a pair of earrings that is versatile.  I could wear these with my t-shirts and jeans as well as my little black dress.  Simple, classic style.  Love.

 

Next up is this cute pair of silver maple leaf dangle earrings.  When I received these, I thought about how perfect they would be for my Canadian relatives!  These dangles are simply adorable.  They also remind me of autumn and nature – two of my favorite things.  Perfect for adding a little earthiness to your look in a subtle and dainty way.

 

This last necklace surprised me.  When I took it out of the box, my first thought was that it would be too tight on my neck.  I was so very wrong.  This choker is awesome for layering with other necklaces, and it’s so easy to wear.  In fact, I traded out my usual long necklace for this one and wore it the rest of the day.  I wore a dress in the morning and a hoodie in the afternoon – it looked great with both outfits!  The heart charm is teeny tiny, which makes it so perfect for me.  Bold chokers definitely are not my style, but the small size of this charm makes it very wearable.  It’s an easy way to add a little femininity to any outfit, no matter the neckline.  Win, win!
