Gabriel Frantzen Sense & Sensibility Collection: Come To Your Senses

In the Jane Austen novel of the same name, we meet two sisters who couldn’t be more different: one exuding spirit, spontaneity, and emotion, the other all about caution and control.

Fenton Silver and Onyx Cuff Bracelets: War and Peace

Always-eclectic Fenton jewelry is fantastical mix of chains, pearls, beads, rhinestones, and even sometimes fur and ribbon. Designer Dana Lorenz has a knack for bringing together dueling personalities, like the kooky and the classic, in an energetically excessive fashion.

David Yurman Spiritual Bead Bracelets: A Spiritual Awakening

Known for his weighty and mature bejeweled silver chunk (ideal for layering, but can get a little hefty for everyday), you can imagine my surprise to find these edgy and youthful bracelets are from David Yurman.
