IntoTemptation…..jewellery musings

Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Elham and Issa Evolution Pendant

Jordanian designers and couple Elham and Issa do bold work in gold. Here, their Evolution pendant in 18k yellow gold, set with  a .13 carat white diamond. They have an online shop, as well as a bricks and mortar shop in Jordan.

Jewel of the day: Annika Burman Rain Cuff

This is one of those pieces where the design itself really does evoke the name of the piece – rain cuff. By British jeweller Annika Burman, this wonderfully drippy piece is rendered in sterling silver and sells for UK£845.

Jewel of the day: Gray Reid Antique Gold and Enamel Earrings

There is something about blue enamel on yellow gold that is timeless and classic. These earrings, which look to be Victorian, are offered by Australian firm Gray Reid. No price or details on the item so contact the vendor if you are interested in purchasing.

Jewel of the day: Shop de Pomme Enamel Pins

I am coffee crazy to the point where I literally have no idea how many cups I consume in a day. So these cute little enamel coffee themed pins strike a chord with me.

By Etsy seller Shop de Pomme, they represent a French press, an old school filter drip pot, and a stovetop espresso maker. The set of three sells for USD$22.67, or about four large Starbucks flat whites. Hmmm. Dilemma.

Jewel of the day: Jennifer Fisher Small Enamel Heart Pendant

Browsing through Jennifer Fisher’s site, it’s apparent that stacking and layering necklaces is now a thing. They do look pretty but having all those chains tangle up would probably drive me crazy.

This sweet little heart pendant could hold its own as a single necklace or yes, you could layer it. The site notes, “A 14k gold heart shaped pendant with an enamel finish and a delicate chain. Available in all JF enamel colors. This item is ideal for gifts and occasions. The heart measures approx 10.70 mm (Approx 7/16″) ,Width: 9.18mm (Approx 3/8″ ),Thickness: 1.75mm (Approx 1/16″). The chain measure 1.1MM (16 Links Per Inch). All of our fine jewelry is custom made to order in New York, therefore please allow 3 – 4 weeks for production.”

This sells for USD$600.

Jewel of the day: Mikimoto Cultured Pearl Station Necklace

This Akoya pearl station necklace is a rather more affordable option from the venerable house of Mikimoto.

It features 5.5mm, A+ quality, Akoya cultured pearls on an 18k gold chain and is 18-inch long. It sells for USD$1,30.

Jewel of the day: Russian Orthodox Wedding Ring

Orthodox Christmas was January 7, though we are heading to a belated celebration today. This unique wedding band is Russian Orthodox, and features the three-bar cross, traditional wedding crowns and “Save and Protect” script, in Russian/Slavonic.

This sells for USD$780 from Orthodox Rings.

Jewel of the day: Megan Markle’s Engagement Ring

As the entire world knows by now, actress Megan Markle will be marrying Prince Harry in May of this year. He proposed with a ring with what appears to be a large cushion cut stone (estimates range from three to five karats) flanked by two smaller stones said to come from Princess Diana.

Time Magazine estimates that the price could have been anywhere from $200,000-$350,000 though the ring’s value is incalculable given the royal provenance and soon to be royal recipient.

Congrats to the pair; looking forward to the pageantry to liven up 2018.

Jewel of the day: Vintage Whale Brooch Pendant

I am still a sucker for a great brooch and this little critter can also be worn as a pendant – bonus! From Ruby Lane seller Sophie Jane, based out of California, she notes, “Pink sapphires total an estimated 3 carats and are pave set into the blackened gold mount. One approx. .05 carat round brilliant cut diamond adorns the eye (estimated at I color and SI2 clarity). Weight: 8 grams Stones:  Pink sapphires total an estimated 3 carats and are pave set into the blackened gold mount. One approx. .05 carat round brilliant cut diamond adorns the eye (estimated at I color and SI2 clarity). The pendant is 1.25 x 1 inch. Metal & Hallmark: 14k white gold. The pendant is hallmarked “14k”.”

This is selling for USD$995.

Jewel of the day: Antique Gold Fox Ring

Can’t say I’ve ever really had a thing for foxes, but this ring is so darned cute. The band is 18k yellow gold and the fox head tests at 9-10k gold. This “marriage” was created by combining the fox head from a stick pin onto an antique wedding band. It’s fun way of getting use out of something not often worn these days though there are a lot of stickpin collectors.

This sells for USD$498 from Etsy vendor Franziska.
