Jewelry blogs are an excellent resource for those of us that want to stay up to date with the latest jewelry trends but don't have the time to sift through various news channels and websites. Quality jewelry bloggers do all the legwork for us and offer us daily updates whether through their blog or social media accounts.

- Has to have beautiful jewelry pictures
- Has to be updated on a regular... basis
- Blogger has to be very knowledgeable but also approachable and entertaining
- Must have an appealing and updated interface to make browsing via iPad, PC, or mobile enjoyable
