Jewelry can make an outfit sparkle, though only exposure to dangerous amounts of radiation can make it truly glow. Stay safe while looking sharp with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of jewelry and accessories at Jewels by the Sea in La Jolla.
A kaleidoscopic array of diamonds and colored gemstones adorns bands of gold, silver, and copper at Jewels by the Sea, a charming boutique that boasts a selection handpicked by owner and graduate gemologist of the Gemological Institute of America Linda Ronelle Jalving. Sparkling light emanates from shelves staggered by the weight of hundreds of earrings ($12+/pair), luring passersby into the dazzling shop. Shimmering cubic zirconias set in sterling-silver earrings ($20) temporarily blind intrusive over-the-shoulder readers, and a funky, oversize crystal ring ($29) beautifies fingers by toning their muscles in an all-day workout. The festive reds of a coral necklace ($79) warm up chilly clavicles just in time for the holidays, and amulets culled from local artists and vintage collections look ravishing when wrapped and placed under the tree.
