Feather Jewelry: Light as a Feather

Feather jewelry tends to fall in the boho category, but more and more, we’re seeing the look with added polish – and at all price points. The style was big on the Fall runways, so prepare your jewel box for next season with one of these unapologetically bold accessories…

Fringe Jewelry: Stranding Up

Fringe bags are having a moment, but that’s too much of a commitment for me (not to mention, they’re rarely done well). I prefer to approach the look from a different angle – through jewelry!

Golden Globetrotting: Wanderlust…

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then gold must be the cousin she loves to play with. And it’s no accident that all things good are considered “golden.” The element transcends currencies and languages and is considered the single best investment by the most savvy of investors…

Lele Sadoughi: Summer Staples

After making a name for herself as the designer of statement-making jewels at J. Crew, Lele Sadoughi started her own line in 2011. Her 14k gold-plated pieces are just as wearable and versatile as her Crew designs were bold.

Elodie K. Bling Me Collection: The Choice is Yours

While the new Elodie K. storefront on Melrose stocks everything from clothes to bags to shoes, some of the best pieces are from the Parisian designer’s own fine jewelry line…

RALUCCA Feather Jewelry

RALUCCA Feather Jewelry: Plumes in Bloom

Feather jewelry can be hit or miss, depending on the quality of the materials and the sophistication of the design. Using delicate, swirling plumes and chains of stones, Raluca Ostasz gives the style a sense of feminine elegance. Her limited edition pieces seem as if they come from the richest depths of the jungle, but of course they come right from her studio!

KADLETZ: Stepping Out on the Edge

Jadie Kadletz may have just launched her namesake line, but I know for certain that she has a least one fan already – me! While the look of her jewelry is clean and minimal, the style is cool girl chic all the way, with shapes and forms like animal tusks, horns, talons, sabers, and even teeth serving as inspiration.

Khai Khai Astrology Pendants: What’s Your Sign?

I’m of the belief that your astrological sign says a lot about your personality. Show me a shy Leo, and I’ll show you one who’s on the cusp of Cancer or has a Pisces rising! Since each of our signs is significant, they’re worth celebrating, and how better to do that than with jewelry?

Rumba Waterproof Watches

Frugal Friday: RumbaTime Orchard Gem Watches

Much like Snob Essentials, RumbaTime was founded by college best friends. I love them for that reason alone, but bias aside, these gemstone-inspired watches are just what you need for summer vacations. With water activities and the potential for loss, it’s best to leave your nice timepieces home. These soft silicone bands make rolling with the punches easy as can be, whether you’re off playing tennis or taking a dip in the pool (while these are water resistant for 99 feet down, I wouldn’t test the waters too much…pun very much intended).
