    Promising review: "These earrings look very nice. I was afraid they would look too much like costume jewelry, but they do not. The color of the metal looks exactly like the description and the stones look very real. I get many compliments on them. They're definitely worth the small amount you pay." —L. Kozak

    The pendant is made of surgical grade stainless steel, and comes with nine washable, reusable pads that you can add a drop of your favorite oil to for an on-the-go whiff of tranquility.

    Promising review: "I love this necklace!! I purchased it so I could have my favorite essential oil scents with me wherever I go, and specifically, I needed it for an upcoming five-hour exam I had to take, so I had something to keep me calm and centered. I love that there are several pads to use for different scents. They're very absorbent and the smell lasts for days and days. I've gotten so many compliments on it, and most people think there is a stone in there, depending on the color pad I have in. It had a nice weight and perfect size. It is very sturdy, too. I imagine you could use it with regular perfume and avoid having it wear off with sweat, or change its smell according to your body chemistry. This keeps it pure and right up close so you can smell it!" —Christina lane

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    14. A heart charm choker — it looks so sweet you might actually kill 'em with kindness.

    19. A sterling silver but gold-plated circle pendant so you can treat yourself to some neck candy and still have money left over for seconds.


    Promising review: "I love this necklace! Just what I wanted! It is dainty, but not a weak chain. I wear it alone or layer it with other jewelry...either way, it is classy. I love the way the light reflects off of it. I also like the way there is a built-in extension to the chain so when I am layering it, I wear it a bit tighter than when I wear it alone." —burkehart
