Bon Jewels Girly Boutique - Del Mar
The glamorous jewels are at Bon Jewels in Del Mar's Flower Hill Mall. If you love glitz and glam, look not further than what I affectionately refer to as "Clare's for Adults". I love stopping in here for jewelry for brides and wedding guests. If you've got a red carpet appearance, a black tie event, or a formal affair to attend, Bon Jewels has amazing earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. They also carry popular lines like Freida Rothman and Versus Versace.
Anthropologie - Fashion Valley and UTC
If your style is more "Bohemian Flowerchild" than "Glamorous Gal", the accessories at Anthropologie will delight you. Aside from statement necklaces and feather earrings, I really love the scarves, hats, and bandanas available at Anthro. They have locations in Fashion Valley and Westfield UTC malls.
Farmer's Markets - Everywhere
If the thought of spending $200 on a pair of earrings make you break out into hives, I recommend visiting the Farmer's Markets for unique pieces that don't break the bank. Since these booths are operated by local merchants with limited inventory, you have the added bonus that very few (if any) other women will be wearing the same accessories as you. And, you get to feel great about shopping local and supporting small businesses.
Bazaar Del Mundo - Old Town San Diego
Bazaar Del Mundo has an amazing, well-priced selection of silver and turquoise accessories. If you're looking for beads, feathers, or fringe, this is another win for my Boho ladies. Bazaar Del Mundo is also a great spot for anyone who prefers real silver to costume jewelry.
Cedros Design District - Solana Beach
Hand Crafted, Solo, and Leaping Lotus in Solana Beach offer items similar to the Farmer's Markets. These shops feature unique pieces created by local artists. Solana Beach has one clear benefit over those farmers' markets though--you can go there any day of the week. As a bonus, these retailers also carry a unique and vast selection of home goods to browse while you're shopping for accessories.
