Carolee Jewelry: Fresh Floral Inspirations, Macaroon Pastels, and Tropical Brights for Spring

Last week, I went to a special showing of Carolee Jewelry Spring collections and met their head designer, Jennifer Kato.  If you haven’t heard of Carolee, the brand has stood for the ultimate in design, value and workmanship for over 40 years.  Jennifer introduced me to their new spring collections, which are inspired by  florals, colors from macaroon pastels, and tropical brights.  

The main collection, which Jen describes as classic, feminine, and flirty uses pearls and semiprecious gems, and are perfect for bridal and special occasion.  Their Catch the Bouquet Collection has a stylish beaded collar and fabric flower and pearl necklace. 
The Gemstone Garden collection has multi-layered pieces, long necklaces that can be worn in different ways, and drop and chandelier earrings.  The Gemstone Garden Five Row Necklace is one of Carolee’s most popular pieces.

Carolee is also been a big supporter of Breast Cancer Research, so there are a lot of pink pieces in their collections.

The Golden Trellis Collection is dramatic with bold silhouettes and made with semiprecious cherry quartz with a golden earthy tone.

Bracelets from the Word Play™ collection are inscribed with inspirational words and phrases. They’re a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, Graduation Gifts, or for Birthdays and pretty affordable at $45 – $70.

  Carolee let me choose a favorite piece from their collections to take home.  I had a difficult time picking one, but decided on the Golden Trellis Triple Drop Pendant.  I think Carolee pieces are pretty and wearable, and definitely something I would enjoy wearing and gifting to loved ones.
