"Have Fun, Try On!" So say the small signs sitting inside the lacquered white cabinets at Kendra Scott Jewelry. It's a hands-on, non-stuffy approach to jewelry shopping that fits the wares beautifully. Displayed in the bauble shop's cases are enough candy colored gems and customizable pieces to fill the jewelry box of our wildest Container Store dreams. As the latest addition to Scottsdale Quarter, the boutique will have you wishing you had extra limbs to hold all the rings and necklaces.
Check out what we'd like to take home, what's on our wishlist, and why we'd go back after the jump.

What we're taking home: - Lande Cuff Bracelet $64.97 - For the dress-up diva, this hefty, glam statement cuff will add drama to any outfit. - Daisy Ring in Turquoise $50 - A bright teardrop stone in a dainty setting is the perfect pop of color for daytime. - Rose Stud Earrings $39.97 - Beautiful, simple, everyday elegance.
Why we're headed back: This opening marks Scott's sixth boutique, and she says she plans to have 13 stores open by the end of 2013. And we can't wait to try out its color bar, where shoppers can customize their own pieces from drawers of gems toward the back of the store. Salespeople can make the earrings, necklaces, or rings to individual's specifications. Ahoppers can walk away that day with an accessory of whatever design and color they choose -- without any markup compared to what the ready-made items cost.
