Jewel of the day: Amanda Rudey forget-me-not collection
Amanda Rudey designs sweet pieces with semi-precious stones using vermeil (gold plating over silver). Her prices are extremely reasonable and the jewelry has a nice fluidity and ease. It would look good with formal wear (she has a bridal collection) but also elegant for more dressy days.
I like the forget-me-not collection. The differing cut of the stones prevents the design from looking too static, and the colours are bright and playful. Available on her website and at various bricks and mortar and online retailers. See more of her jewellery here.
Matching drop earrings as shown are USD $285.
