Rock Candy

Rock Candy
Monday, July, 09, 2012 Have a sweet tooth? Well, lucky for you we have some sugary crystal confections that won't give you cavities. This summer, we're craving rock candy gems in luscious colors-bubblegum pink, lemon drop yellow, and more. In fact, the treats from Willy Wonka's factory pale in comparison to Dolce & Gabbana's S/S 12 runway and the plethora of candy-inspired jewels on the market! Best of all, these sparkly pieces may give you a sugar rush, but they won't make a huge dent in your wallet since everything here is Under $100!The Inspiration
When it comes to indulging our sartorial sweet tooth, Dolce & Gabbana's Jewel Embroidered Bodysuit (price upon request, 1.877.70.DGUSA) does the trick. Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's black mesh corset, coated in dozens of gumdrop-like glass jewels, is one of the most fanciful pieces from the label's S/S 12 collection. While the gem-encrusted onesie isn't practical per se, you can shop these sweet (and more wearable) charms we found!

Shop The Look
H&M Earrings ($8)
Girly, flirtatious, and fun, H&M's neon pink baubles are an obvious choice for date night or a GNO. These dangling earrings won't break the bank, which means an extra cocktail or two is in order!

Frangos Blue Feather Ring ($92)
Frangos' showstopping ring is crafted from a cascade of blue Swarovski crystals. Flaunt this fancy bauble with an equally sophisticated dress for a night out.

BaubleBar Fruit Neon Bib ($50)
The versatility of BaubleBar's multicolored bib necklace makes it a winner. Play up the tangerine stones and lime green cord with a neon tank top, or layer the piece over a neutral button-down for a cool contrast.

ASOS Spike Drop Earrings ($10)
ASOS' spike earrings serve as the perfect face-framing accents. Wear these shoulder-grazers with a halter top and pulled-back hair to emphasize their dramatic length!

Juicy Couture Wide Colorblock Thread Bracelet ($68)
Rock 'n' roll glam collides with hippie chic in this unique cuff. The combo of sparkling rhinestones and threaded bracelet is unexpected and totally chic.

t+j Clear & Yellow Highlighter Necklace ($42)
Inject a hint of color into your look with t+j's necklace. Smaller yellow stones subdue the clear crystals, making it an office-appropriate accessory.

Ann Taylor Neon Bouquet Cocktail Ring ($48)
Add a touch of edginess to any basic ensemble with Ann Taylor's striking cocktail ring, a cluster of colored and clear crystals.

C Wonder Square Bling Studs ($34) in Neon Green
Prefer a more understated take on this trend? Try C Wonder's simple square studs. The neon green hue is one of summer's hottest colors, but the earrings also come in subtle shades like champagne and mint.

Adia Kibur Short Neon Stone Necklace ($54)
When you need a game-changing accessory, consider Adia Kibur's notice-me-now necklace. The strand of chunky pink stones will pop against a solid-colored t-shirt.

Kate Spade New York Chandelier Earrings ($98) in Yellow
If you're in the mood for a bold jewelry statement, Kate Spade's lemon drop yellow earrings stand out against any hair shade. Pull your tresses back into a messy bun or ponytail to allow the jewels to shine.

J.Crew Cabochon Fan Bracelet ($75) in Peach Blossom
If you told friends you plucked this pretty trinket from your grandmother's jewelry box, they'd believe you. J.Crew's clasp bracelet has an elegant, vintage vibe--and hey, your secret's safe with us!--Tiffany Tse
