Market Watch: Blue Nile

Blue Nile Fall 2011

When I think of Blue Nile, my mind goes straight to a sparkly things. The online jewelry retailer, although still maintaining its status as a major engagement ring and fine diamond supplier, is now trying to make its mark on the fashion world, one shining stunner at a time.

And I have to say, I was impressed by their new assortment of designs, most of which won't break the bank.

Whether subtle pieces or bolder, personal ones, the baubles cater to what a woman would pick out herself. (No more dropping hints ladies!)

Blue Nile Fall 2011

With a wide variety of new jewelry already available on the site, Blue Nile plans to roll out even more new styles this fall.

The stackable rings were definitely a favorite—available in platinum, white, yellow and rose gold, and a variety of colors—they can be worn as one band or stacked in different color combinations on top of one another.

My idea of statement accessorizing is colorful and chic, but not over-the-top, and the drop earrings (top image) were exactly that. Perfect with a LBD, these are timeless pieces that really work for every generation and occasion. Or at least they do in my family (I can picture my mom wearing them easily!)

For fall, long chain necklaces with delicate turquoise and amber stone details (pictured above) were standouts.
