Ana Khouri Jewelry: The Punk Princess

Ana Khouriicon takes personal expression to another level…another stratosphere, really! Both Tina and I have fawned over the Brazilian designer’s hand cuffs before (they’re not what you’d think), and with each new piece I discover, I find myself more and more intrigued.

Fendi Fox Fur & Crystal Bracelet

Fendi Fox Fur & Crystal Bracelet: Taming the Monster

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…I fell hard and fast for this pet the moment I walked into the Fendi boutique at Crystals in Las Vegas (aka the most opulent mall anywhere – and no, that’s not an oxymoron), where a replica of Rome’s Trevi Fountain greets you.

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.

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.

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.
