I love the unique jewelry and Boho style that the Coachella music festival birthed, but it can be hard to find all those awesome pieces, and definitely pricey! I am so happy that Brazilian-born supermodel and mother of two, Alessandra Ambrosio, has taken over Baublebar to provide some cool ornamental offerings for the modern woman.
And Alessandra positively nails it, with creative body jewelry and headdresses that are hip and gorgeous, as well as reasonably priced. I love what this girl has done! She’s making that Coachella rich hippie new bohemian look accessible to every girl.
Here are some of my favorites from her comprehensive collection….
Every princess needs her crown, and my current obsession is the Princess Gem Headpiece, $48, that turns an ordinary look into an extraordinary one. Isn’t it just gorgeous??? I love the way all the stones are different shapes and sizes. A lot of thought went into the execution of this piece, and the price is right!
I adore snake imagery, and after all, doesn’t every girl deserve at least one phallic symbol? Alessandra captures that with her Crystal Constrictor Ring, $48, and it comes in both rose gold or smokey hematite…..Love this ring for Coachella or clubbing. It can look Boho chic, or go to a darker couture spot in a heartbeat. The perfect ring for almost any wardrobe change. Gotta have it!
There’s no denying that body chains are a hot ticket in fashion right now, and this one is irresistibly priced! It’s the Crystal Raja Body Chain, $22, with a criss-cross in the front for visual interest, and a haunting spine full of crystals in the back!
Or for a fancier version, check out the Celestial Body Chain, $28. Hot! Wear it with your bikini, or let it peek out from a one-shoulder top with denim shorts. Super sexy!
Every girl needs a hand chain, I think, and the Pavé Fishtail Hand Chain, $36, is glam with pretty pavé detail. And at this price, why not buy two, and reserve one for gifting….Seriously, this is a great deal and it’s right on trend. Pair it with the Fishtail Chain Ring, $48, if you feel the urge to make a match….
For an exotic influence, I am loving the Turquoise Capri Amulet, $65. The new Boho look is all about mixing ethnic influences with modern concepts, so a squash blossom turquoise necklace is mandatory! This one looks so authentic to Native American tribal jewelry, and at a fraction of the cost.
The Quartz Spoke Collar, $44, combines the healing quartz crystal with modern design sensibilities to create a statement necklace like no other! This is a rich hippie accessory if ever there was one, but its price makes it accessible to every girl. Check it out as worn by Alessandra herself, pictured top, at Coachella this year!
Now that Alessandra Ambrosio has distilled the essence of Boho chic jewelry into a single chic shopping destination with ále by Alessandra, she has simplified both my summer accessories shopping as well as my gift list. Kudos, Alessandra!
