Jewel of the day: Bellus Domina Floresco Necklace

This limited edition piece by Bellus Domina is “made with natural orchids coated in acrylic resin. This necklace is exclusively and carefully hand-made in Sicily by trained jewellery designers and topnotch assemblers. Orchids are as light as air and all its veins are readable on the surface, this does not only make unwarranted duplication impossible, it is also designed to bring you comfort and pride. The handmade artisan process requires about a week for each jewellery piece to be made. The process begins with the careful selection of flowers and petals featuring unique shapes and colours. After this selection has been made, Orchids are dried and preserved with several coats of Acrylic resin. Each jewellery piece is made unique. Subsequently, to a slight extent, the stock image might be different from the necklace due to the unique features of natural plants.”

Orchids are notoriously finicky to grow and maintain, so this necklace gives you the bloom without the fuss. This sells for USD$480.

Jewel of the day: Myla Bonner Large Brilliant Diamond Hoop Earrings

The name of these black rhodium plated sterling silver earrings by Myla Bonner refers to their diamond crystal shape, and not to the sparklers themselves. But that just makes them much more affordable. These sell for £150.

Jewel of the day: Clariste Jewelery Stingray Bracelet with Silver Lock

Clariste Jewelry is a firm with a fresh take on wearable pieces. Their “about” statement notes that they are ” high end designer jewelry company founded by Austrian designer Andreas Stifter.

This piece features stingray closed with an ornate engraved silver locking mechanism. It sells for £183.

Jewel of the day: Kojima Pearl Twinkle Stud Earrings

If simple pearl stud earrings are too simple for you, this gussied up pair by Kojima Pearl is worth a look. An oxidized sterling silver spikey halo frames a 6.5mm Chinese freshwater pearl. These sell for USD$135.

Jewel of the day: Two A Double Square Horn Necklace

This pendant by Two A is definitely on the large side, but it looks perfect with a tunic type top or dress. They note, “This daring and beautiful geometric necklace is the definition of a statement piece. Turn heads and grab attention with this long necklace crafted from strong metal casting plated in matte silver coloring. This necklace is big, bold and fearless. It’s the perfect way to showcase your unique personality and style.”

This sells for Cdn$263.

 

Jewel of the day: Liel and Lentz Paloma Ring

I find the more unconventional use of a stone laid horizontally in a ring really eye catching. This one, by Liel and Lentz, sets a Labradorite marquise into a gold plated brass band. At 2mm, the band is also satisfyingly chunky and offsets the size of this tone. As of this writing, the ring was on sale for Cdn$53 from $105.

Jewel of the day: Seasonal Whispers Multiple Bracelet

Never know how or what to stack when it comes to bracelets? Problem solved with this set of six bracelets by Seasonal Whispers. With just enough embellishment to give them some dash and sparkle, they feature crystals and faux pearls set on 24k plated wire.

This sells for USD$107 for the set.

Jewel of the day: Victoria Sorkin Holitache Earrings

Victoria Sorkin uses fabric and beads in her intricate yet very wearable pieces. These earrings are an excellent case in point. She has embellished fabric strips with Swarovski crystals to great effect. These measure 8cm long and are 3.6 cm at their widest part. They sell for USD$147.

Jewel of the day: Monserrat De Lucca Brass Skeleton Bracelet

For my Goth leaning friends (and you know who you are!) this skeleton bracelet will be a perfect fit. By LA-based Monserat De Lucca (who also make great bags) the chain allows for to curve snugly over the wrist. This sells for USD$170.
