Best Grammy Awards Jewels: Rock Stars

Okay, so Carrie Underwood wore a $31 million Johnathon Arndt necklace (is it me or do the prices go up every award show?? Soon celebs will just be carrying around giant diamonds). It’s a pretty big deal. But I’ll tell you what’s not a big deal – her entire stodgy look. Packing on carats doesn’t […]

Wide, Wild Cuffs: Animal Attraction

My New Year’s resolution was to invest in quality pieces that will last me for the long haul. I’m pleased to say that one month into 2013 and I’m still sticking to my fashion guns! Sure, this pony calfskin Céline cuff has a wild side, but a little leopard should always have a place in […]

Branch Jewelry: At One with Nature

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for fashion. The more sophisticated a woman’s taste in jewels, the more she brings it back to the basics and tones it down.
