Ever since I was a tween I’ve been obsessed with Betsey Johnson. Her personal style is often considered ‘out there’, but I’ve always appreciated her playfulness and use of colour. Whether dressed in a pink tutu or her famous horizontal stripes, she’s bound to make a statement. And that feminine, whimsical attitude translates to both her clothing collection and jewelry designs.
Recently, Best Buy began carrying a selection of Betsey Johnson jewelry and watches. And I had the opportunity to style a few of the pieces this week. So today, I’m sharing a few of my favourite designs! And not only do they each make for a great Valentine’s Day gift for the special someone in your life, they are totally affordable!
Betsey Johnson Glitter Rose Necklace & Earring Set
The first piece I fell in love with was a matching set of pink glitter rose earrings and necklace. I instantly knew the beautiful rose-coloured glitter in the Betsey Johnson Glitter Rose Studs would look stunning against my vibrant blue hair. Both pieces are adorned with a faux pearl, faceted bead, and rose-coloured crystal accent, but remain edgy and sophisticated.
And although I don’t typically opt for gold-tone jewelry, there was something about the Betsey Johnson Glitter Rose Necklace that was begging to be paired with a leather jacket. I love how flirty these pieces are together, but it’s a bonus that they are sold separately because each one is a statement piece on their own. Plus, I would totally mix and match them with other items currently in my jewelry collection.
And true to the whimsical nature of Betsey Johnson Jewelry designs, the rose details on the Glitter Stud Earrings are inverted, creating a playful look. I’m totally obsessed with the way the outfit turned out, despite typically straying from pink!
Betsey Johnson Basics Heart & Skull Stud Earrings
The sixteen-year-old in me is dying of envy over these Betsey Johnson Heart & Skull Earrings. Although I would still totally wear them now, over a decade later! But seriously, as a former punk kid, this set of earrings is right up my alley. Featuring a silver-tone and slight shimmer thanks to a set of round-cut, pave-set cubic zirconia gemstones, they are the epitome of Betsey Johnson. Edgy with a little sass hidden in the smile of the skull. And despite being listed as a set of two earrings I would totally mix and match the heart and skull to create a third set. Or fourth, if you like me have two ear piercings.
Betsey Johnson Basics Ladybug Stud Earrings
Finally, there’s the Betsey Johnson Basics Bug Earrings, which feature an adorable blue ladybug. Again, this pair of earrings perfectly complements my hair colour with the ladybug body being made of a translucent teal/blue coloured crystal. They feature gold-tone wigs, which are also adorned with multi-sized glitter accents giving them a sparkle. And might I add, this ladybug has two beady black eyes! Too cute! And while with that said, I personally feel they are too kitschy for myself, I can imagine gifting them to a number of my cousins, and even a few close friends!
