  • Liberty Bell


    Man's best friend and the Liberty Bell ... two totally rad American icons. It's stylish enough to accent any piece and also perfect for the holiday.

  • Bald Eagle


    A nod at our national bird -- with a bit of blue. This will jazz up any  Fourth of July fashion, but it can also be worn again to give you an edgier, rocker chick style.

  • Red, White & Striped


    These gems will be a hit at your festive holiday bash! Pair the earrings with a simple, solid color dress and skip the necklace -- your stars will speak for themselves.

  • American Studs


    It's no shocker that we won our nation over with a little bit of force and these studs will remind you of the battles our forefathers faced all afternoon long. 

  • Oval Earrings


    Oval earrings, Oval Office ... need I say more? The Prez takes care of his bizz at the White House and you're the Commander in Chief of your backyard BBQ. Salute!

  • 'A' Is for America


    Proudly sport your initials right on your wrist or rock just about any letter! May we suggest an 'A' for America and 'B' for home of the Brave.

  • The Star


    Even though it's not red, white, or blue, it's still the perfect patriotic accessory to pump up your outfit and it's pretty to boot!
