redirection part II

I have been dying over Todd Reed's rings but his earrings are equally exquisite. Oddly enough, I love his stud earrings the most. So simple but so amazing!
These earrings by Brooke Gregson are unbelievable. The diamonds, the setting, the tangled chain, the length... pure perfection!

I feel like I have been talking a lot lately about rings and I feel slightly guilty for neglecting all the other important categories in jewelry! So here are some necklaces I have been drooling over lately. This necklace by Conroy & Wilcox (who also happened to design my lovely friend Lex's amazingly beautiful engagement ring) is pave-set diamonds in sterling silver. I love the exaggerated lines of this crescent moon and I can only imagine how lovely this would look around the neckline.This beauty, from Sarah Perlis, is a diamond slice set in 18K gold. I love the 3 rings that hold the pendant and this is just one of those spectacular pieces that you could literally wear every day yet it would never cease to feel special. (Lucky magazine also happens to be giving away this beautiful piece to one lucky reader in the month of February!)

Next up... earrings!!!

deep blue

Yowsers! Now I remember why I LOVE tourmaline so much... look at that color! I love the organic shape and how the gold really makes the color of the tourmaline pop on this Satomi Kawakita ring.

brushed gold

After 2 weeks of hard work, I treated myself to this beauty from Anthropologie ($48, handcrafted by artist Betty Carre). I got the emerald cut moonstone version and I plan to stack it with some oxidized silver bands to perpetuate my new obsession with mixing gold and oxidized silver. (Even better... I love how this ring looks like way more of a splurge than it actually was!)

looking to spring

Sorry for the lack of posts recently! Our Anthro team has been feverishly testing out our new spring display ideas and the long hours have been keeping me away from my computer. I love fall, it's my favorite season, but there is something so refreshing and exciting about spring after the long cold months.

new year

My new year's resolution... to pay a little more attention to bracelets! I tend to wear the same silver bangles day in and day out but I question why I keep neglecting this major jewelry category. To spice things up, I'd love to get a sparkly marcasite bracelet that will give my jewelry wardrobe a little pizazz while still seamlessly fitting in to my already established collection of rings, earrings, and necklaces. (vintage marcasite bracelet found on ebay.)
