IntoTemptation…..jewellery musings

Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Sarah & Sebastian Ring

Net-A-Porter adds the descriptor “tiny,” which is more than apt in this case. The site notes, “Sarah & Sebastian’s ‘Tiny’ ring is as dainty as its name suggests. Crafted entirely by hand in the label’s studio, this design is made from polished 14-karat gold and embellished with amethysts, sapphires and diamonds. The delicate band lends itself perfectly to layering and stacking.”

This sells for USD$975.


Jewel of the day: Rachel Comey Camille Solid Smokey Earrings

What … you say glitz is not your thing? Swing over to a very sleek and modern design with nary a rhinestone in sight. These acrylic earrings are by Rachel Comey, in the shape of a stylized hoop (more or less). These sell for USD$92 and will keep your modernist rep intact.


Jewel of the day: Baublebar Morgause Bib Necklace

Tis the season for dressing up and parties and generally anticipating the upcoming holidays. So if you needed a reason to break out the glitz, the next month or so should amply provide many.

This glitzy choker necklace from Baublebar ticks all the boxes for a festive holiday look. (Well, except for delicate. You’re out of luck if that’s one of your requirements.)

It is made with a zinc setting and acrylic (not glass) stones, but for USD$68, it provides the bling laden look you are probably seeing if this appeals. A merry and happy whatever it is you celebrate!


Jewel of the day: Oscar de la Renta Impatiens Flower Drop Earrings

The photo of these earrings alone makes them seem quite demure and petite. Which is why I’m including the photo of them on the mannequin instead. These are far from shy and retiring earrings but given the time of year, they fit right in.

By Oscar de la Renta, they are made with a beaded top (the listing doesn’t note if these are clip ons or for pierced ears) and what appears to be fairly lightweight resin. No word on dimensions either but assume “large.”

These sell for USD$425.


Jewel of the day: Wendy Yue Jade Pagoda Ring

For the wannabe dragon lady in your life, this fantastic representation of a pagoda in a ring. By Wendy Yue, it is made with 18k white gold set with jade, rubellite, champagne diamonds and sapphires. Stone weights are: 4.32 ct rubellite; 18.54 ct green jade; 2.47 ct champagne diamonds; 3.15 ct pink sapphires; 0.25 ct white sapphires and 4.98. ct black diamonds.

Available from Stanley Korshak, this sells for USD$22,500.wendy-yue-jade-pagoda-ring-10235192-22500-side-2


Jewel of the day: Reinstein-Ross Woven Chain Bracelet with Braid Lock

Reinstein-Ross is known for using gold with a subtle variety of hues (they term this one peach gold) and in high karats. They note, “Hand woven in 20K gold, our woven chain Bracelet is an extraordinary and luxurious piece. It is available online with a braided mechanical lock and can be custom made with a number of other fantastic locks – with or without stones.”

This sells for USD$9,800.


Jewel of the day: Art Deco Carved Sapphire Ring

What I like about this ring are its signs of having been worn, and things others would probably feel are flaws, like the monogram carved into the centre sapphire. Bearing the initials ELD JR it looks almost a bit like the Greek key design on the sides, rendered in gold inlay on the platinum ring setting. The sapphire weighs 6.5 carats.

This is being offered at auction in New York by Bonhams; estimates are USD$ 1,500 – 2,500 CA$ 2,000 – 3,400. This goes under the hammer December 6.


Jewel of the day: Jennifer Fisher XL Multi Hoops

While these would likely be the tinkly accessory that could drive cube mates crazy, I think these aptly named multi hoops would be fun to wear.

By Jennifer Fisher, they are available in silver plated or 14k gold tone plated metal. They have a drop of 5 inches, and are 2 inches wide and sell for USD$495. Jingle on!



Jewel of the day: Annelise Michelson Algae Sea Leaf Choker

From Annelise Michelson‘s Algae collection comes this sea leaf choker (there are other pieces in the collection with the same motif). Not sure how comfortable this would be to wear but I like the look of it, standing up on the neck instead of draping downward. It’s made with silver or gold plated brass and sells for €1,125.


Jewel of the day: #baskets4bros and a prostate cancer pendant

My title today is a bit different than usual! The necklace below is made to show support for those dealing with prostate cancer (the blue bead can also signify other medical issues). And I’d like to give a shout out to a fundraising event taking place today to help see out Movember, where for every tweet or Instagram hashtag using #baskets4bros Astellas Pharma Cancer will donate $5 up to a maximum of $50,000. The baskets refers to the Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers game taking place today, where fans will be asked to do the same.

If you’d like to show your support by buying this necklace, it is from Etsy seller RanolaSg. It is sterling silver with a Swarovski crystal bead accent and sells for USD$29. And you can use that #baskets4bros hashtag to help close out Movember with a donation on your behalf.
