Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Midas Touch Edition

There’s nothing like gold. Whether it’s the real metal shining in a bit of jewelry or the color used to decorate glass, fabric, leather, or wood, gold adds warmth to nearly everything it touches.

Case in point, these handsome mouthblown glass goblets in the Sparkle pattern from Global Amici:

Global Amici Sparkle GobletImagine these by candlelight at an intimate dinner party. Just think how they will glow, how the mosaic pieces of green glass will catch the light, how much more delicious your wine or water will appear in them.

And then imagine the secret smile you’ll wear as your friends and family ooh and ah over them and wonder how much they must have cost. The retail price for a set of four may be $80.00, but you’re headed over to Smart Bargains, where you’ll get them for just $49.99.

Of course some of us like to wear gold on our persons. One of my favorite places to wear it is my wrist. In fact, I’m quite loving this bracelet by Betsey Johnson.

Betsey Johnson Sweet Romance BraceletThis delightful goldtone bracelet stretches to fit over your hand. Each link features a colorful print under a faceted lucite ‘jewel’ to form a beguiling piece of jewelry.

Of course, I consider the price one of the most beguiling aspects of the piece. Once upon a time, it would have cost you $75.00. Right now, though, from Nordstrom, it’s just $44.90.

Then again, why keep all the gold to yourself? Why not share it with man’s best friend?

Metallic Gold Rhinestone Dog CollarNo, that’s not a stack of doll-sized belts. They’re actually dog collars. It comes in three different sizes, depending on the size of dog you have as a companion, and features a rhinestone buckle for an extra touch of sparkle.

When they were first introduced at Wrapables.com, they ranged in price from $54.95 to $65.95 . Now, though, they run from $39.99 to $49.99. After all, your dog is worth it.

But you don’t have to give your gold to the dogs, if you prefer to keep it for yourself.

Light Pink Fleur WalletYou can keep it in this. It’s a pretty gold clutch with pink embroidery in a lace pattern that could be just the thing to make your evening look perfect.

But at what price? Well, the original price was $60.99. Amazon put it on sale for just $37.99…and then they slashed that price to a measley $29.99!

At those prices, there’s no reason not to be a golden girl!
