Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Julie Wolfe Opal Stud Earring

Ah, opals. I love them. This tiny but pretty opal stud earring is by Julie Wolfe, and features a cabochon opal set into a hand hammered 14k yellow gold bezel setting. What I am most shocked by is that it is USD$95 at Barneys, which is generally not the place you find under $100 gold jewellery.

I vividly recall visiting the store in NY a few years back and asking about a silver piece I had seen for substantially less on the designer’s web site just before my visit. When I asked about the price discrepancy, the salesman drew himself up and said, “Madam, this is BARNEYS.” And indeed it is.
