lucifer is just alright with me

I love these rings from Lucifer Vir Honestus. The gunmetal paired with sparkly diamonds is just about perfect and I love how these rings look stacked. The negative space is almost as interesting as the rings themselves.

wonderfully simple

I love this wonderfully simple ring from Elephantine. I usually wear a lot of jewelry on a daily basis but lately I have been desiring a much more minimalistic style with my accessories. The simplicity of this ring feels so refreshing and exactly what I need.

nature imitating itself

I can't get over how beautiful these two stones are! (Landscape Jasper on the left and Dendritic Agate on the right.) They look like they were hand painted with the greatest intent and skill. Nature can create some pretty amazing things.

rough amethyst

New addition to my ever-expanding jewelry box! I got this glamorous piece this weekend from JKarma (thanks for the present, Sara!). I love the rough amethyst crystal paired with the gold... and oddly enough, this piece kind of has a similar effect to what I was loving about the Watermelon Tourmaline necklace.

I am off to Chevy Chase again for the week to help out Anthropologie's newly opened accessories store. So excited to see the space again and see what has sold and what new product they have gotten in!

dash dash

I saw this on one of my regular reads, A Cup of Jo, and fell in love. At first I was drawn to the dainty simplicity of this necklace but once I read that the beads spell out words in morse code, my heart simply melted!

watermelon in winter

I would love to wear this watermelon tourmaline necklace with a chunky knit sweater to give a little pop of spring color during the cold winter months.

another one to the arsenal

I am a ring stacker, through and through. (I mean... why wear one ring when you can wear three?!) I am contemplating getting a sapphire band to occasionally add to my wedding ring set (comprised of my wedding band, engagement ring, and the ring I purchased from the sale of my wedding gown) for an additional pop of color now and then. Some may call it overkill, but I like the option to mix and match with the set of rings I plan to wear every day for the rest of my life. And this sapphire band is so reasonably priced, it only seems like a minor splurge.

north star

Just finished this ring last night... my first ring, actually, produced out of my own studio. Inspired by the dewdrops ring from Sundance, I took a more industrial twist to the setting design. A 3mm cubic zirconia is bezel set on a hammered and oxidized sterling silver band. And the thing I love most about oxidized silver is that the dark patina will only get better with time as it fades with wear, bringing out the hammered texture even more.

pretty tough

Equal parts tough and pretty, this crystal-trimmed gunmetal cuff from Made Her Think is a showstopper! This cuff would take any outfit, even jeans and a t-shirt, to a whole other level of cool.

any new york

I am loving the sculptural designs of Any New York. (My 3 favorite designs, featured in Lucky magazine, are directly above.) I am completely entranced by these exquisite pieces of wearable art. I think I can confidently say that these designs would never bore me!

oh, melissa

You have done it again, Melissa Joy Manning, you have stolen my heart once more. I am simply dying over these stud earrings, so simple yet so unique. These are definitely a pair of earrings I could see myself wearing time and time again.

I'm back from opening Anthropologie's first accessories store in Chevy Chase, MD and it was unbelievable! We transformed the space into a wonderland of detailed display and the product is simply amazing. Here are a few sneak peeks...A candy store of delicious accessories!

Estate rings from Doyle & Doyle, a new product addition for Anthropologie... and such an exciting addition!
