Amulette de Cartier Necklaces: Luck Lockdown

“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.

Duvelleroy Peacock Feather Fan: Ooh La Love

This peacock feather fan is for the Snob who has everything. The bright and delicate plumes make for an over the top accessory that is just as functional (feeling a little hot?) as it is fun.

To call her wildly creative is an understatement – this is thoroughly beyond-the-box thinking that confidently maintains an elevated taste level fit for the snobbiest of jewel snobs. Everyone has […]

Jewel Snob Paola Pacheco Jewelry: Positively Charming

Paola Pacheco’s earthy and uplifting jewels have been a snob favorite since our friend Adriana Castro gave us two beaded necklaces last year. Both colorful strands have the eye for good luck and protection from evil; the Colombian designer bases much of her designs on the positive potency of symbols and stones. With a nature-inspired […]

Ippolita Turquoise, Mother of Pearl, Chrysoprase Earrings

What a fantastic and simple way to dress up summer. These add instant feel of beach or shore to any outfit, even simple jeans and tee shirt. These colors are my favorites of all time, green chrysoprase and blue turquoise – so gorgeous! The mother of pearl in between breaks it up so you get […]

Brera Orologi Frederica Collection

I love the look of this watch from Brera Orologi’s Frederica Collection (the co-founder named the women’s watches after names she would give to a daughter someday…how cute!). It’s sporty, but still stylish so it’s perfect for a gym-to-lunch look, not to mention a way more affordable and original version of the white ceramic Chanel […]
