I already have soooo many ocean themed pieces since I like to pick them up on my cruises… but I couldn’t help picking up at least one adorable charm right away… the rest I’ll pick up on my travels! Like this little whale…. they just released it and I can’t wait to buy one next year when my Mom and I go on a California cruise to see the whales!
It’s like they knew I was going on a whale themed cruise and released a charm just for me!
But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, let’s take a look at the one charm I had to have right now. This little sparkling starfish is rose gold (which you know is my favorite) and just called my name. Can’t you see why?!
(One side note before we jump into everything… I photographed this little charm on the clear lid of my stackers jewelry box on top of a fuzzy backdrop. But doesn’t it look like it’s floating?!)
He’s just so cute in person! I love all the little details! Especially since the stones are soooo blue in person while they look a little less blue in photos online.
My favorite part? All the details on the back of the starfish… including the little heart in the middle. I love how Pandora hides that little heart in the sweetest of places!
Ready for the bracelet?
The bracelet for this collection is leather with a cute little silver shell for the clasp. I have a few leather bracelets but typically I like silver bracelets better… but I just had to have this one!
I love the blue and honestly I’m a sucker for any type of unique clasp so this little shell was right up my ally. It comes in 3 different sizes and I want to put plenty of cute little ocean themed charms on this little guy so I picked up the largest (8.1) size.
I’ll tell you though… that shell clasp is super hard to open! If shell bras are as hard to get open no wonder Ariel never worried about hers falling off!
Look how cute the little guy is stacked on top of a double leather bracelet! Even without a single charm these two look super cute together!
Especially if you’re on a cruise and don’t want to wear a full bracelet with lots of charms this would be a cute styling. On the other hand… let’s see how this baby looks with a few different styling options.
Style 1: Simple Rose Gold Pairing
For this first look I kept it simple with the pretty sparkling starfish in the middle, 1 pair of rose gold iridescent murano charms and 1 pair of my favorite cascading glamour spacers.
I love how this look is pretty simple yet still shows off the rose gold of the starfish AND the silver of the shell.
It’s a pretty great combination.
Although it slides around a lot so I definitely need a few clips. Maybe these little teal pave clips to bring in a bit more of the teal?
Style 2: All the Ocean Charms!
Ready for the second look?! This little stack is still fairly simple with a light blue double wrap leather bracelet and my rose gold sparkling tennis bracelet! (Although on a side note how pretty would the new turquoise and rose gold tennis bracelet be in this stack! *heart eyes*).
Of course, the main difference is all the pretty teal and turquoise charms I added to this little charm bracelet!
My two favorites are the little seahorse and the caribbean parrot… but I added the dolphin and original starfish dangles to the outsides. I love the original starfish since it has the same teal pave stones as the new starfish… and the same shell as the clasp on the bracelet! So cute!
I love how this little stack came together… even if I’m not on a cruise I think it will remind me of all the fun minutes I’ve spent on a ship with my family!
Of course, now that I have an ocean specific bracelet I need a few new charms to add to this baby! I’m thinking this little teal pave ocean and starfish charm is a must have! And maybe a few more pretty rose gold additions? Like this little rose gold and teal ocean waves & fish charm?
