What are your favorite jewelry trends for spring 2012?
This guest post is by Edwin who regularly writes about celebrities, TV, movies, and fashion for the Celebutaunt blog on USDish.
Elizabeth Taylor is an icon in celebrity culture and boy, did she have one amazing jewelry collection. More magazine showed of some of her beautiful jewelry that she received from former husband Richard Burton in their December 2011 issue. These gorgeous jewels are definitely stunners that I am sure any of us would love to add to our jewelry collection. The only thing is that the estimated cost of these designs are in the millions, not exactly budget friendly. While we can enjoy Taylor’s actual pieces from afar, why not purchase cubic zirconia jewelry to satisfy your glamorous cravins?
At Fantasy Jewelry Box we carry a large array of CZ jewelry that will take your breath away. See designs similar to Taylor’s collection below and add them to your own collection today.
Decadents, and swoon-worthy, the Givena’s fancy cascading emerald shape red crystal necklace set will definitely have you channeling Elizabeth Taylor. Can’t you imagine her wearing a design like this? It is made up of high quality crystal stones and will sparkle with every move that you make. Get it here for $58.95.
A sterling silver wedding ring set like our Elisabetta’s version will make you feel as if you are dripping in diamonds. It weighs in at a whopping 3.25 carats and the best part is that it looks like the real thing, but without that insanely high price tag. Click here to get it for $87.95.
For a jewel-tone look, we love sapphire CZ jewelry. The hue is so deep and intoxicating, and sapphires are so popular now do to the British royal wedding. This is the Alice’s deep sapphire blue emerald cut engagement ring that look genuine and you can snag it for so cheap! Head to our site here and get it for $49.95.
Want to personalize your holiday gifts this year? We love the idea of using birthstone jewelry to do so. These pieces just so pretty to accessorize with, but the recipient will love the thought and effort you put behind it.
Not familiar with what stones go with each month? Well here you go! January is represented by garnet stones, so buy something that has a really dark and deep red hue. February is amethyst, go with a pretty purple stone. March is all about aquamarines, think light blue like the beach. April goes by diamonds, purchase something that is crystal clear. May loves emeralds, so you want a rich green. June’s color is very sweet, you will need lavender for this month. July goes by rubies, so pick a pinkish-red. August has peridot stones, so a refreshing green will do the trick. September is very royal with its sapphires, so buy a rich blue. October loves pink hues, so opt for this feminine color. November has topaz, why not go for a yellow shade of it. December goes earthy with turquoise, so you want a vibrant light blue.
Check out some of our designs and choose the color of your choice:
These 10mm round red Swarovski crystal stud earrings are to-die-for! Beautiful and very elegant, we love how something so small can still make a statement. These earrings are made up of high quality Swarovski crystal stones that sparkle beautifully in any light. Snatch them up for yourself today for just $12.95. We have them in a variety of colors.
A sterling silver birthstone CZ stackable eternity band is trés chic and every woman needs a sleek design like this for their jewelry collection. Purchase one for them for a simple look, or multiples to be stacked up one finger. They also make for fantastic personalized wedding rings as well.
We just think that these stackable birthstone rings are so precious. Choose from a circle, cross, moon, star or heart design. Buy one of each to be layered on top of each other for a rich and fun look.
For a more modern birthstone ring, give these stackable petite solitaire birthstone rings a whirl. They are made up of sterling silver and are set with a high quality cubic zirconia stone.

Navigating the Fall/Winter 2011 fashion scene can be tough. So we're here to make your life easier. Here are some of the Top trends for the Fall and Winter 2011 seasons that are not just incredibly hot, but very wearable as well.
1) Red is a fierce hue that will turn heads when you walk into a room. Whether you wear a blouse, dress, skirt or bag that is a rich red, we have a feeling that not only will you look great, but it will give you a boost of confidence as well.

2) Maxi dresses are romantic and elegant. Pair them with everything from proper blouses to edgy vintage t-shirts. Get one in a neutral hue so that you can wear it over and over again.

3) Fringe is very retro and will add a fun twist to your outfit. Not only does this bag look chic, but it's quite affordable as well.
American Eagle, $40, Ae.com
4) Faux fur is cozy and very stylish. A winter white one is also very elegant. We love that this design is reversible so that you can get two completely different looks out of it.
Jennifer Lopez Collection, $63, kohls.com
5) Mid-size floppy hats are a great way to frame your beautiful face. Plus, they are a great way to hide bad hair days. By mid-size, we mean to buy floppy hats that are 6 inches or less in brim.
Apt. 9, $26, kohls.com
6) Rich plain gold jewelry is very easy to wear and will add luxury to your ensemble. A simple, but bold chain is not only wearable, but has a beautiful shine as well.

7) The 70's are back with a vengeance and we think that trouser jeans are something you can wear everyday if you wanted to. Our favorite retro look is pairing them with a bow-tie blouse and platforms.

I'm going to let you in a little secret. As a fashion editor and stylist this is something that you always have in your kit for emergencies. It's such a great product for fashion binds, that I even carry it with me whenever I leave the house. What is this magical item?
If you aren't familiar with Topstick tape, all it is is wig tape. How does wig tape help you? It is wonderful for quick pant or skirt hems, straps that won't stay up, shirts with gaps at the buttons, belts that are too long and anything else you can think of that needs to be taped down.
Now some of you may be asking why not just purchase fashion tape to do this? This is because fashion tape and Topstick tape are essentially the same thing, but Topstick tape is cheaper. Not only does it do the job well, but you end up saving money. Once you start using it, you are going to wonder how you ever lived without it.

At Fantasy Jewelry Box, we have a ton of designer inspired jewelry that will save you a ton of money. Can you guess which one is the $140 version and which one is our version for $50?
The Leighton's gold coral reef necklace set is a great plain gold jewelry design that will make a statement whenever you slip it on. And while we really admire Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry, we must say that these two pieces look so incredibly similar, why not purchase ours and save yourself $90?
