"Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination"
We have a soft spot for sparkly stones, pretty pearls, and candy colored gems. Beautiful baubles are the icing on our cake, and we're as giddy as kids in a candy store when we're surrounded by pretty pieces. A little beading here, a bit of glitter there, keep it coming! It's hard to hold back when our sweet tooth starts to take over, but these candy confections are better than sugar- and last longer, too. Satisfy that craving with our sweet treats and pick out your faves!
A jewelry box full of glittery Richard Kerr earrings is a tempting sugar coated treat- with far fewer downsides. Zero calories, no sugar crash, and no purple mouth! These signature crystal sparklers add a sweet edge to any look, and are powerful statement-making workhorses in a fun-sized package. Kerr's signature Swarovski-encrusted designs were created in the 1980s in Dallas, Texas- and you can easily see that they Go Big or Go Home!

Melt-in-your-mouth merengues and crystalized sugar drops are at once sweet and modern. The couture legacy of jewelry designed by the house of Bijoux Françoise Montague is one that blends the old with the new; the classic French aesthetic with modern, impeccable craftsmanship. Pearly finishes topped with hard-edged bling in small doses are tasteful and timeless.
We're such a fan of these bright beaded statement pieces. Round and polished, lightweight and loose, we can't but help run our fingers through a pile of glistening beads. Even better when they're strung on the neck or wrapped 'round the wrist.
It's just soo satisfying.
Did you know?
Haribo is a portmanteau! Hans Riegel combined the first two letters of his first and last name with the first two letters of his hometown, Bonn, Germany.
We're addicted to this multi-strand beaded necklace by Valentino. We're drawn to the palette of alligator greens and golds and can't stop with the beads. We keep coming back for all those textures- like a gummy, we can't stop at just one.
These sugary sour strips tasted like our childhood. What that says about us, we're not sure- but to be honest, we devoured the box and had no regrets. Who else remembers sandwich baggies of these at school? Yes, we really ate them. All in the name of work. C'mon, we're working here!
Did you know?
Cotton candy was invented by a dentist! It was originally called Fairy Floss. Way to grow the business, Dr. William Morrison. This fluffy cloud of fairy floss paired perfectly with our other William, a bamboo cuff bracelet by William de Lillo.
"I know a guy who's tough but sweet
He's so fine, he can't be beat
He's got everything that I desire
Sets the summer sun on fire
I want candy, I want candy"
-BOW WOW WOW
These candy gems have come to life! Currently resisting the urge to pop one in our mouth- they're much prettier wrapped 'round the waist in this unsigned beauty of a belt.
"Pour some sugar on me
Ooh, in the name of love
Pour some sugar on me
C'mon, fire me up
Pour your sugar on me
I can't get enough
I'm hot, sticky sweet
From me head to my feet, yeah"
Don't forget to sprinkle a little sugar on your toes. These candy-colored shoes add just the right touch to complete a playful look. From Roberto Vianni's crystalized slingbacks to Mortarotti's meltaway rainbow slides, we'd make sure to finish off the perfect pedicure with these summer sweets.
