Lupita Nyong’o x Vita Fede Jumbo Double Cubo Earrings

Lupita Nyong’o x Vita Fede Jumbo Double Cubo Earrings: And the Awards Goes to…

I’ve giving huge props to Lupita Nyong’o this morning (and pretty much every other morning, but this one in particular!). Last night she was the coolest chick at the MTV Movie Awards, proving the actress knows how to dress for a fun event like this just as well as she dressed for the Oscars.

Trend Alert: Ear Cuffs

As someone who can’t wear earrings (even platinum studs irritate me), I’m completely on board for the ear cuff trend. Sure, you could say it’s my only option, but really, there’s no compromise involved. If anything, the cool factor goes way up when a piece encompasses the entire ear, rather than just the lobe.

Federica Rettore Double Baroque Pearl Diamond Ring

Federica Rettore Double Baroque Pearl Diamond Ring: Two If By Sea

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.

Fallon Palm Cuffs

Fallon Palm Cuffs: Cuff Me

Dana Lorenz of Fallon jewelry never fails to excite and delight. My newest obsessions are her stunning palm cuffs. Studs for the rocker chick, pearls for those who love a touch of Elizabethan sophistication, and pave Swarovskis for the ultimate in shine. The styles come plated in yellow gold, gunmetal, and rhodium. My favorite? Multiples at once!

Jennifer Alfano Birthstone Pendants: Personal Effects

The older I get, the pickier I am about my jewelry. Sure there are some pieces too beautiful to pass up, but I would take a jewel with sentimental meaning over that any day! My grandmother gave me a few heirlooms when I graduated from high school, and though I didn’t fully appreciate them at the time, they’re now some of my most prized pieces.

Cindy Chao Ruby Ribbon Ring: One in a Multi-Million

Words cannot describe how proud I am of my dear friend Cindy Chao. In a very short time, she has taken the jewelry world by storm. And redefined the very definition of fine jewelry. As a supremely gifted sculptress, she has elevated jewel art to the next level, raising the bar with her fantastical creations.

Top 5 Hinged Rings: Making Moves

A simple cocktail ring is no longer enough to start up a conversation. But a full-finger ring? Well, that’s something no one can miss. The trouble is that not all of these are articulated, limiting your basic movement and turning day-to-day tasks into serious challenges. Enter hinged rings!
