Saddle up with Derby Day equestrian jewelry “bits” and pieces

Equestrian jewelry: Beautiful "bits" and pieces for Derby Day!


The Kentucky Derby is just around the corner. And, even if you aren’t making the pilgrimage to The Bluegrass State, you can still enjoy this American classic at a Derby Day party.

But, what does one actually wear to a Derby Day party? Traditional must-haves include floral sheath dresses, kitten heels, over-the-top spring hats and, of course, equestrian jewelry.

Some of the best equestrian jewelry that I’ve found is from Fornash. The company is located in nearby Arlington, Virginia and is the brainchild of Stephanie Fornash Kennedy. With thousands of gorgeous bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, plus accessories like handbags, phone cases, and scarves, Fornash is a veritable treasure trove!

Not only are the designs lovely and the selection amazing, the prices are incredibly affordable. For example, the lovely bracelets, above, range from a mere $23 to $25.

To see many other must-have pieces, visit Fornash, or shop at one of over 3,000 retails stores in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean.
