Halloween Jewelry: Trick or Treat

Halloween and costumes go hand-in-hand, but that doesn’t mean your jewelry has to follow suit. Have fun with the holiday’s themes – just do it with pieces that you can also wear outside the month of October! Orange and black, skulls (of the McQueen variety), and creepy crawlies are all on the table. Which will you be sporting for the witching hour?

Fragments Jewelry: Little Pieces of Heaven

If there’s one thing I love as much as bags, it’s jewelry. I’m always excited to discover different designers, and on a recent shoot in NYC for LifestyleMirror.com, I was introduced to Fragments, an insanely cool jewelry store that stocks incredible and unusual fine jewelry. The first pieces to catch my eye were Mizuki’s icicle diamond earrings ($3,130).

Lanvin Fall 2013 Accessories

Lanvin Fall 2013 Accessories: Sending Out the Message

Subtlety? What’s that? For Fall 2013, Lanvin is making the message clear – and that message is go big or go home. Accessories emblazoned with single words like “cool,” “love,” and “help” are the kind of pieces you’d expect to see Rihanna wear with aplomb. They sound a little kitschy, yet in pewter and faux pearls, Alber Elbaz makes them as sophisticated as can be.

Bibi van der Velden Spring 2014

Bibi van der Velden Spring 2014: Wearable Works of Art

When you think of statement jewelry, some of the first things that come to mind are large pieces, bright color combos, and unusual shapes. Bibi van der Velden knows that it’s what jewels are made of that sends the true statement, though. The NYC born, London and Netherlands bred designer crafts her pieces with rare materials like Chinese jade, Italian coral, and oh yeah – 40,000-year-old Mammoth tooth dug up from the Siberian tundra!

Top 5 Hinged Rings

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!

Elise Dray Dragon Articulated Ring

Elise Dray Dragon Articulated Ring: A Jewel of Fire and Ice

Chalk it up to me being in Asia (and a Game of Thrones addict), but I’m suddenly drawn to all things dragon. If I can’t have a real one to turn my enemies to ash, I’ll just have to get my ice and fire from Elise Dray’s articulated full finger ring. Even though the French designer’s collection is only four years old, the fantastical scope is far from small.

Nail Rings: Snob or Slob?

It’s a big year for rings – from minis to midis and now to nails, we can’t seem to get enough! Is the newest trend taking it too far, though?

Eva Fehren X Collection: X Marks the Sparkle

NYC artist Eva Zuckerman (Fehren is her middle name) makes fine jewelry, but she doesn’t rely on the high-quality gems and metals to impress you (although those are pretty breathtaking!). These pieces are all about delicate, yet impactful design. After earning a degree in fine art from Cooper Union and working with Snob favorite Monique Péan, Eva started her own line in 2011 and quickly won rave reviews with the X Collection.

Multi-Finger Rings

Multi-Finger Rings: Count on Me

Stacking jewels always packs a punch, but when you feel like giving all your digits some love, turn to trendy multi-finger rings. Abundance is even easier to achieve since the bands are made to coordinate (unlike the random assembly of rings hiding in your jewelry box).
