“Amulette: A small object worn to protect the person wearing it against bad things (such as illness, bad luck, etc.).” I don’t know about you, but that’s more than what any of my other jewels do! First came Love, then came Juste un Clou, and now one of the most iconic luxury maisons has captured me yet again with the release of the Amulette de Cartier.
Nothing screams summer on the Greek Isles louder than gold and turquoise jewels (except for me, when I scream, “gold and turquoise jewels!”). Even if you won’t be retreating to Mykonos over the next few months, and will only be lounging by the backyard pool, you can still look like you’re sunning on a yacht in the French Riviera.
Marissa Collections always has the best selection of unique fine jewelry, which is the kind of fine jewelry I tend to seek out. If you’re going to invest big, doesn’t it just make sense for the piece to be one-of-a-kind? Bochic is a go-to brand for these standout jewels, namely because it was inspired by a standout woman…
From nail to midi rings, it’s clear that excess is in when it comes to decorating your digits. Rather than throwing on all of your favorite pieces and hoping for the best, get the job done right in one fell swoop. Multi-band rings create a put-together look without requiring you to actually spend time putting together your accessories.
As a protégé of both Giorgio Armani and Andy Warhol, fine jewelry designer Wilfredo Rosado knows a thing or two about “transforming street style into high fashion.” Look no further than the Metropolis earrings below, a classic teardrop shape outfitted with a multitude of diamonds, rubies, and pink and yellow sapphires.
I’m all about adorning the ear this season! Next to flawless makeup, there’s no better way to brighten your face, and the latest way I plan to do this is with the help of the House of Shaun Leane. The goldsmith has apprenticed in traditional craftsmanship since the age of 15, perfecting the art of creating high-end fine jewelry.
Perfection is not only overrated, it’s boring, which is why I gravitate towards unique pieces like Federica Rettore’s double baroque (a.k.a. non-spherical) pearl diamond ring. In fact, unique is not the right word – this is one-of-a-kind. The Italian jeweler uses rare gems like Paraiba tourmaline to create her masterpieces, and I love this deep sea beauty best of all.
Last week I shared what I want for the holidays (fingers crossed the hubby was reading!). This week my focus is on what to give. Christmas is just six days away, but don’t panic. I’ve rounded up jewels for every woman on your list from the wife to the Mom Snob to the bestie and sisters, all at different price points.
