CUCHARA Chokers: Making a Statement

Statement pieces often require you to break a piggy bank or two, but it’s hard to maintain the pow factor of a statement jewel when you wear it over and over again. To keep the momentum going, you really need to change your jewelry up, which is why I love CUCHARA. The line offers a mix of edgy, alt-rocker pieces at affordable price points.

Jewelry to Buy Yourself: Be Your Own Valentine

Never wait for a man to buy you what you can buy yourself. Don’t get me wrong – I love to receive thoughtful and sentimental jewelry from my hubby, but if there’s something that I just must have, I go ahead and get it. That way there’s no need to subtly drop hints and heighten your expectations, only to find that your hints we in fact too subtle. Show yourself some love come February 14th with this Valentine’s Day jewelry!

While Lanvin’s Oracle collar (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,242) will give […]

Hervé Van der Straeten Gold-Plated Cuff: Cut It Out

Get the look of abundance with just one single accessory. Hervé Van der Straeten’s hammered, gold-plated creations always take my breath away. There’s something very old world about the style – like it belongs on a Grecian goddess. But on Hervé’s modern designs, there’s nothing behind the times about the look. Just take notice of […]

Salma Hayek x Cindy Chao: And the Oscar Goes to…

For the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Salma Hayek turned to the best – my dear friend Cindy Chao. The actress donned the Maple Leaves choker from Cindy’s Four Seasons Masterpiece Collection, this piece of course representing the fall season.

Holiday Ornament Jewels: Deck the Halls!

Boughs of holly are nice, but jewels are what make me jolly. You’ve decorated your tree, mantle, front door…it’s your turn now! There’s definitely a tacky and gaudy way to wear ornament jewels, but as long as you choose fun and festive (yet still tasteful and sophisticated) options, you’re set to shine. You won’t find […]
