Jewelry to Buy Yourself

Jewelry to Buy Yourself: Be Your Own Valentine

Never wait for a man to buy you what you can buy yourself. Don’t get me wrong – I love to receive thoughtful and sentimental jewelry from my hubby, but if there’s something that I just must have, I go ahead and get it. That way there’s no need to subtly drop hints and heighten your expectations, only to find that your hints we in fact too subtle. Show yourself some love come February 14th with this Valentine’s Day jewelry!

Nikos Koulis White Diamond, Black Diamond and Rhodium Ring

Nikos Koulis White Diamond, Black Diamond and Rhodium Ring: Hand It Over

Now this is hot. From multi-finger pieces to minis worn by the dozen, it seems our ring game has really elevated this year. In fact, I wouldn’t even call this a ring – it’s a hand jewel. The three-finger accessory comes from Greek designer Nikos Koulis, a man known to tackle fine jewelry with a touch of shockingly elegant whimsy (Bejeweled pineapples? Why not?!).

Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela: Crystalactite Collection

Most jewelers try to design something original using the same old techniques they have always worked with, but Atelier Swarovski and Maison Martin Margiela know that to be truly innovative, you have to break the mold.

Vita Fede Double Earrings

Vita Fede Double Earrings: Two is Better than One

The design of most earrings focuses solely on the way they appear on the front of your lobes. This is a little lazy, no? If your hair is up, then the back is almost as visible as the front, a fact that Vita Fede’s Cynthia Sakai acknowledges and designs with in mind!
