Turquoise jewelry is known to date back thousands of years ago, where ancient civilizations played a huge role in the popularity of this beautiful stone. The beautiful Robin's Egg blue-colored stones were heavily mined throughout the American Southwest, and were often used as ceremonial gems as well as in jewelry and adornments.

Today, turquoise jewelry is more difficult to find. As a result, methods have been developed to create turquoise through a dying process that includes using "chalk turquoise," or reconstituted turquoise, into the stone. Because we are so fond of this beautiful blue stone, we wanted to share our love of it with you! We recently introduced several new arrivals to our collection, and one of those is the beautiful, reconstituted turquoise jewelry.

Spring Trends for Turquoise Jewelry

Turquoise and sterling silver have been a classic duo in the jewelry world for years. The beautiful blue color and silver are a perfect match to create an ornate, vintage-feel to the piece. While the trend with turquoise jewelry has traditionally been associated with Native American culture and a southwestern style aesthetic, designers are beginning to take a fresh new approach to the way they use this beautiful stone.

One of the spring trends we've spotted on the runway is the addition of turquoise included in large statement earrings and bracelets. Statement earrings are one of the hot spring jewelry trends this year, so focusing on a beautiful pair of earrings to highlight your look is key! The robin's egg blue color is beautiful for spring and summer months, and pairs perfectly with a boho-chic inspired ensemble.

Incorporating it Throughout Our Collection

Since introducing the reconstituted turquoise into our collection, we have been able to incorporate it throughout our line in earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. The collection features sophisticated pieces, like these bar drop earrings or bar pendants. These designs are sleek and modern, and help to add a sophisticated element to your look.

Our reconstituted turquoise jewelry collection also consists of beautiful Native American-inspired pieces like thesedream catcher earrings that would complement a boho-chic outfit.

We are even finding ways to incorporate this beautiful stone into our pendant necklaces like this turquoise and peridot turtle necklace. This method has proven to be a more simple way to integrate turquoise into our jewelry collection. This is a perfect addition for the woman who prefers to add a little sparkle in with her turquoise.

With all of these beautiful turquoise pieces to choose from, you are sure to find your new favorite piece! Browse our new arrivals where you will find our reconstituted turquoise jewelry and other stylish items to add to your jewelry collection.

Long gone are the holiday parties where it was fashionably acceptable to wear loads of metallic and glitter. It is now time to break out the cable knit sweaters and layer, layer, layer! With winter weather finally here, now is the time to search your closet for some winter looks that will not only keep you warm but they will also keep you fashionable.

Since we love to keep you up-to-date on the latest fashion and jewelry trends, we have put together some of our favorite winter fashion looks that you can replicate during this cold, wintry season. These cold weather fashion looks are both affordable and stylish. We are sure that you will be excited to step out and show off your winter look (Okay, maybe not too excited to step outside, but you get the point)!

1. Chunky Knits - Just because it is winter does not mean date night fashion has to suffer. This look is perfectly balanced with cozy and chic. We think this diamond cross bracelet would make a subtle statement to this trendy outfit.

2. Bundled Up - Anorak jackets are definitely on trend this year. The military feel keeps the look casual, and the coat keeps you warm and cozy. We are loving the knit beanie hat and chunky heeled boots that add a feminine touch to the outfit as well. Pair this look with classic diamond stud earrings, like these ones here, and you will be all set.

3. Oversized Scarves - We know that wearing scarves in the winter is not really a trend as much as it is a necessity. However, these oversized scarves take winter fashion to a whole new level. This look combines a polished element with a casual element, which is what winter fashion is all about: balance. This look would also pair nicely with a pair of classic diamond studs.

4. Bold Colors - Cold weather fashion does not necessarily mean muted colors and boring patterns. It is absolutely acceptable to wear bright colors in the middle of the winter. We especially love this look because it mixes a common winter fashion trend (hello, plaid!) with bright bold colors of the summer. To top this look off, we suggest accessorizing with a chunky cocktail ring.

Bright Colors for Winter Fashion

5. Subtle Metallics - You might not be able to pull off a metallic cocktail dress as easily as you could last month, but that does not mean you still can't find fashionable ways to wear metallics with your every day winter looks. We love this look because it is polished, and the metallic flats seem to just add the extra oomph to the outfit. We totally adore this look and think it would be complete with this giraffe pendant necklace.

6. Winter Lace - Lace can be worn all year, but we especially love it during the winter months. It is elegant and perfect for winter parties and cocktail events. To brighten up a dress like this, we suggest adding a pop of color with this beautiful emerald-colored gemstone necklace.

Chic Winter Fashion

7. Monochromatic - This is a trend that is very 'in' right now, and we absolutely love it! Though there was a time when a monochromatic ensemble was frowned up in the fashion world, it has definitely made a turn-around! We see monochromatic looks on the runway almost every season, but this is a practical version of how to wear the trend for a more casual, every day look. Pair this look with a couple stylish midi rings to complete your look!

(Attribution: Brooklyn Blonde)

8. Structured Hats - Winter fashion is all about looking polished and put together. It is about pairing structured pieces with items that are more casual. This look is great for winter if you are in love with the idea of wearing structured hats. We love how casual, yet chic this look is. We think a pair of these adorable owl earrings would add a fun element to the look.

Trendy Winter Looks

9. Athleisure - If you are unfamiliar with this trend, it is okay. We were too! Though, once we realized how practical and fun this trend is, we were totally on board! The basis of this trend is mixing athletic wear with a casual piece of clothing (say, a denim jacket or cardigan like the one pictured here). We think this trend would be fun to mix with a classic pair of diamond stud earrings to add a feminine touch.

(Attribution: The Honey Bee)

10. Distressed Denim - This winter look is another favorite here at Jewel Exclusive! There is something so effortless about a look that includes distressed denim. The great thing about distressed denim is that it can be dressed up or dressed down. We love how she opted for a polished top and jacket to balance the casual look. A great pendant necklace is all you need to finish this look. Might we suggest this colorful peacock necklace!?

One of the greatest parts of Thanksgiving is the abundance of delicious food.

We have compiled a list of our favorite Thanksgiving sides that you can incorporate into your dinner this year!

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Sides

  3. Honey Glazed Baby Carrots - This recipe is a staple for any Thanksgiving dinner, which is precisely why we had to include it on our list.

In total, honey glazed baby carrots takes about 20 minutes to make. The full recipe can be found here at Damn Delicious.
  4. Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole - Thanksgiving dinner would not be complete without potatoes! Even if you are on a low-carb diet, we are just saying that potatoes are a must for this holiday.

This Thanksgiving recipe would not be considered a simple one, but we can promise that it will be one to enjoy! The full recipe can be found at Yes To Yolks.
  8. Crockpot Cranberry Apple Stuffing - Sticking with our cranberry theme, (can’t you tell we love them?) this Thanksgiving side dish is one of our favorites because you can make it in the crockpot! Who doesn’t love something else doing the cooking for you? Stick all of the ingredients inside, and let it cook away - it's that simple. A major benefit of this recipe is that you will have plenty of time to prep all of the other delicious sides that we have mentioned while the stuffing cooks perfectly in the crock pot. The full recipe can be found atHouse of Yum.
  9. Creamy Fruit Salad - We cannot give a top 10 list without mentioning something sweet! A creamy fruit salad is the perfect ending to a very-filling Thanksgiving dinner. It is not too heavy, and it packs just the right amount of sweetness. This salad takes only a few minutes to prepare and whip together and about an hour or so to chill. You can find the full recipe at Tastes Better from Scratch.

Halloween party ideas

Vampire pumpkins (DIY Maven) http://www.curbly.com/users/diy-maven/posts/14331 
Spooky Balloons (Brit & Co) http://www.brit.co/diy-halloween-balloons/
Pumpkin Drink (The House of the Smiths) http://www.thehouseofsmiths.com/2012/10/fizzy-pumpkin-halloween-drink-party-tips.html 

Can you believe it is almost Halloween!? For many people, this means one thing; it’s time to start planning the annual neighborhood Halloween party! While hosting a party always seems like a great idea, it can be stressful if you do not start with a solid plan. Here are some great Halloween party tips that you can use when hosting a Halloween party that the kids and the adults will love!

Where is the best place to get inspiration?

We live in a digital world where information is at our fingertips at all times. However, sometimes that can get overwhelming, especially when we need something specific. When you decide to start planning for your party, the best place to go is one of our favorite places - Pinterest! Pinterest is a collaborative website where you can find great visual ideas for just about any party theme, including Halloween, that you are looking to plan. The first step is to create a free Pinterest account. Then, establish a board specific to your party or theme, and finally, begin searching for ideas and Pin away!

What kind of foods should I make?

Since this is a Halloween party, the best kinds of foods are those of the creepy variety! Of course, since you are planning something more kid-friendly, try to keep the scary factor to a minimum! Here is a list of some of our favorite Halloween party foods that the kids will love:

· Cup of Dirt with Worms

· Chocolate & Vanilla Mummy Cupcakes

· Frightful Fruit Kabobs

· Mummy Hotdogs

· Jack-O-Lantern Cheeseburgers

· Fizzy Pumpkin Halloween Drink

· Oreo Spider Cake

· Graveyard Pudding Cups

What are some cool Halloween party tips for decorating?

A Halloween party is not quite complete without the scary décor to go along with it. Again, since you are planning a neighborhood Halloween party for the kids, you want to make sure your decorations are not too scary! Here are some great tips for crafts and other decorations on a budget:

· Spooky balloons - take a sharpie to some white and orange balloons and draw Jack-O-Lantern faces on each balloon.

· Vampire Pumpkins - Cut out an area for a mouth from your small white or light colored pumpkin and insert fake vampire teeth into the mouth area.

· Printable Garland- the internet is full of sites that offer free printable garland. Hang some pumpkin or even Bat garland along a hearth or on the wall!

· Spider Streamers - Take black balloons and tape them to the corners of the ceilings. The next step is to get some black streamers for their legs. Tape the ‘legs’ to the balloons. This gives the illusion they are crawling up the wall!Creepy!

Inviting everyone over!

Now that you have figured out the details for your party, it is time to invite your guests! There are a couple of ways you can handle the invitations; it really is just a personal preference. If you have more time and want to spare no details, consider sending out paper invites to your little guests. They will love having something come in the mail for them, and you are even able to put your own personal touches on it! Since we also live in a digital world where you can reach most, if not all, of the parents, you could send out a Facebook invitation as well. Since it costs nothing to create and invite people to a party on Facebook, this may be a great addition to sending out paper invitations too!

What kind of games should I plan for the party?

Keeping the little ones entertained during the party should not be too difficult as they will be enjoying time with their friends, the excitement of unique costumes, and the feast of sugar treats in front of them. However, having some fun games planned can certainly help keep them enthused. Here are some inexpensive games you can create for your neighborhood Halloween party:

· Pumpkin Patch Stomp - Fill a dozen or more orange balloons with some money or small pieces of candy, and then fill them with air. Attach a leaf print out to the stem of the balloon so it mimics a pumpkin, and arrange them on the ground. Whichever kiddo stomps on the most "pumpkins" in the shortest amount of time and collects the most prizes wins the game!

· Pin the Spider on the Web- This is a twist on the classic game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Create a giant web to place on the wall, and stick some tape on the back of a big, plastic spider. Blindfold each kiddo and let him/her have a chance to get the spider as close to the center of the web as possible.

· Guessing Games- These games are always a hit at parties, especially if the party is with older kids. Fill some jars or bags with mystery items, and have the kids try to guess what the items are. Using creepy plastic spiders, gummy worms and candy corn will help keep up with the Halloween theme.

· Mummy Costume Content- Divide the group up into pairs and create a team name for each. Then, have one person be the designer and the other person be the ‘Mummy.’ Use toilet paper to create the mummy look and see who can create the scariest mummy.

We are sure that these tips in addition to your creative skills will help you create a fantastic neighborhood Halloween party that your kids will love. As for the mess you will have to clean up? Well, you are on your own with that one!

Can you believe that the fall season is right around the corner and summer is on the way out?! I know, we are pretty sad about that too! Not to worry though, with the change in season comes fantastic fall jewelry trends that we cannot wait to share with you. These trends might be ones you have seen before or maybe it will be the first time, but in either case, it is time to try them out for yourself. Whatever it may be, we are ready to inspire you!

Top 5 Popular Fall Jewelry Trends

Baroque- This trend has slowly made its way back onto the fashion scene over the last few years. At first, we were seeing it with clothing and now it has transitioned into the jewelry scene. Baroque reflects a European style that is characterized by ornate detail. Since this style of jewelry emulates elegant European trends, these earrings could be paired with a dressier look, such as an evening gown, or even a feminine blouse and structured blazer for a more modern look. 

Floral- When we think of floral, we tend to think of the spring and summer months, but believe it or not, the floral trend is breaking way into the fall jewelry trends for this year as well. The runways were filled with floral jewelry trends, both big and small, for the 2015 fall season. Floral is feminine, and being feminine will never go out of style. This necklace is the perfect way to incorporate fall jewelry  into your autumn wardrobe without feeling like it is too much. You can wear this with a lovely blouse or layer it with a dainty chain necklace for more of a trendy feel. 

The One-Sided-Earring Look- This may not make sense to some of you, but we want to be the first to say that you do not have to love every piece of jewelry trend that graces the runway! This particular trend is for the edgy woman; the woman who dares to be different. This fall jewelry trend is what we would consider a fun trend that you can try when you are heading out for an entertaining girls night. If you have two piercings in each ear, simply take two studs (they don’t necessarily have to be the same color, size, shape) and put them in one ear. Usually parting your hair away from that side or even wearing your hair up will show off this trendy look.  These stud earring pictured below are a subtle way to rock this fall jewelry trend. 

Pearls- Here at Jewel Exclusive, we like to think of pearls as a classic jewelry staple that never goes out of style, (and it usually does not) but with this trend, pearls are being worn with more edgier pieces, balancing a look of feminine and edgy. On the runway, this jewelry trend was paired with leather and a lot of prints. These earrings can be paired with a cute t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a cozy scarf for a stylish fall outfit as well. 

Layering Chains- Fall is all about layering, so it makes perfect sense for layering to be one of our favorite fall jewelry trends for 2015. This trend is the most simple because there are not a lot of ‘rules’ when it comes to layering jewelry. You can wear this trend with bracelets and necklaces. We like the idea of taking dainty, feminine necklaces and layering them over a cute tee or a billowing blouse. These two chains here would look great paired together. 

No matter what trends you choose for the fall season, we know you are sure to look amazing in your Jewel Exclusive jewelry. For more fall jewelry trends, visit our Instagram page for daily inspiration and other exciting jewelry styles that we cannot wait to share with you!
