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!
I’ve been enamored with mini rings lately, so the mid finger ring trend just feels like the next step. Since the jewels sit higher up on your digits, they’re smaller, giving you the perfect excuse to pile them on one after the other.

Is it Halloween already? It’s no secret that Delfina Dellettrez has an unusually gothic sense of style (she draws inspiration from famed 16th century anatomist Andreas van Vessel), but this is just creepy.

Perfectly chic. The bar extends over your hand with such a clean and polished design that it actually seems understated (and with only one actual … Continue reading Countdown Jewels: Four, Three, Two, One-Finger Rings

Reminiscent of armor (just not as backbreakingly heavy!) like the kind Joan of Arc would have worn, these statement cuffs … Continue reading Best Brass Jewels: Breast-Plated
