Where I wear them
No matter what the season or the reason, the time or place, the decade or the day, whatever region in which you reside, or what fashion trend suits your style, the hoop is a staple jewelry item that I honestly believe is a perfect pick for everyone. I realize there are different styles and sizes that are appropriate for each individual, so I gave you a few choices based on what suits your personal style best. I like having at least one pair that is gem-less and all about the shiny metal alone. I am often known for wearing the larger sizes, but think these stainless steel mesh hoops are a perfect compromise between my typical hula hoop size so you can still have the profound “big hoop” look that shows up but isn’t TOO much. They are large but not too heavy, and still great for all occasions, not to mention super durable in stainless steel.Moonstone:
When I travel or start a new journey or adventure, I find myself drawn to wearing moonstone and find it’s lore to be perfectly apropos. It is said to be a calming, healing stone associated with love and good spirit within. I believe the choices I selected in moonstone are awe-inspiring, and truly showcase the magic of this all natural untreated stonDrusy Quartz:
When you see all the skilled artisan work and craftsmanship, you can’t help but be impressed. Then add drusy, and you can’t compete with the look. Timeless, original, unique, artistic, and fashion forward; these items have it all.

She anchored local cable news shows in high school and college, and graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication and Journalism. Following graduation, Nikki was regularly featured on the soap opera “All My Children” and went on to recur as “Cynthia” on “Young and the Restless.” Nikki also starred in several independent films and commercials and has been the MC/Host, Singer, and DJ for numerous live events. An avid fan of pop culture and entertainment, she also reported live on the red carpet for various TV productions and awards shows, as well as working behind the scenes with well-respected production teams in Los Angeles.
