Jewel of the day: Sheryl Lowe Diamond and Sterling Curb Chain Bracelet
I didn’t realize that actor Rob Lowe’s wife Sheryl had her own jewelry line. Lest you think she is just “wife of” Neiman Marcus, which retails her line, notes, “Multi-disciplinary designer, Hollywood makeup artist, philanthropist, mother, and wife (of Rob Lowe), Sheryl Lowe first caught the jewelry-designing bug in 2007. When it comes to materials, she thinks outside the jewelry box. Beaded bracelets, drop earrings, cuffs, and pendant necklaces feature unconventional components such as oxidized metal, bone, pyrite, and alligator leather—in addition to mainstays like gold and diamonds. For Sheryl Lowe, business is personal, and she names each piece for a friend, family member, or a place she loves to visit. The aesthetic? Globally inspired, yet distinctively Californian.”
I quite like this curb chain bracelet with diamond pave clasp. It reminds me of both antique and contemporary watch chains, and the diamonds give it a bit of something extra on a clasp that isn’t the usual (somewhat thoughtless) lobster clasp.
Total diamond weight is .73, and the yellowed stones go well with the oxidized look of the piece. It sells for USD$1,100 at Neiman Marcus.
