IntoTemptation…..jewellery musings

Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Kamushki Narrow Bone Diamond Cuff Bracelet

This diamond bracelet by Kamushki is a sharper (almost literally) take on the bangle bracelet. Made with blackened 18k gold set with diamonds (carat weight unspecified), it’s more tart than sweet but all style.

This sells for USD$5,038.

Jewel of the day: Pariah Intertwined Necklace

This necklace by Pariah reminds me of an antique watch chain. Made of sterling silver plated with 18k gold, yellow and rose gold, it’s understated enough for daily wear while still making a quiet statement.

This sells for £690.

Jewel of the day: Astrid and Miyu Sterling Ear Cuff

This fun linear ear cuff is sold as a single, so you can be as creative as you want with the other ear, or other ear piercings you may have. By Astrid and Miyu, they note, “The fine line ear cuff is an on-trend piece. The unusual structure and simplicity of this piece makes it both very cool and very wearable. The ear cuff, crafted from sterling silver, has two elements: a stud and a cuff that can be placed higher up the ear. The high-shine finish makes it look especially striking. The fine line collection is a fusion of geometry and softer lines. It has been inspired by minimal architecture, painting and structures. This collection is designed to celebrate the interaction between our bodies and our accessories, which was done by studying the contrast of fluidity between chains and solid lines.  The sterling silver ear cuff is beautifully made and should be worn with hair swept back to show it off to the full effect. Mimic its shiny finish with wet look hair styled into a bun or a messy ponytail. Simple make-up will add to a minimalistic look.”

This sells for USD$95.64.

Jewel of the day: Lily Gabriella Czarina Hand Cuff Bracelet

This gold and diamond bracelet by Lily Gabriella can give you that regal feeling, even if you happen to lack a title. Dubbed the Czarina, it’s made with 18k blackened gold set with 4.4ct black diamond. It is available for custom orders in other gems and gold colours.

This sells for £6,250.

Jewel of the day: Anissa Kermiche Gold and Pearl Ring

Pretty and sophisticated, this gold ring by Anissa Kermiche takes the supposed fustiness out of pearls. The oval shaped ring in 14k gold is set with a single small pearl (dimensions not stated), and sells for USD$461 from Matches Fashion.

Jewel of the day: Anine Bing Emerald and Diamond Earrings

For the emerald lover, these are a perfect alternative to diamond stud earrings. By Anine Bing, these are 14k rose gold with a centre set emerald and diamond halo. I’m not sure why they provide measurements instead of weight for the stones but the site notes, “Emerald: Width 1.57in, Height 1.57in; diamonds: width 0.03in.”

These sell for USD$1,499.

Jewel of the day: Carat London Quentin Bracelet

This is a pretty fabulous fake that looks much more expensive than it is. Carat London offers this Quentin bracelet in rose gold vermeil set with clear stones, which I believe are cubic zirconia. It can easily be worn mixed and stacked with other bracelets, but shines nicely on its own.

This sells for USD$227.

Jewel of the day: Jennifer Merchant Beveled Ring

Jennifer Merchant’s work has a playful, Roy Lichtenstein/op art vibe to it. Available through Facere Jewelry Art Gallery, they note, “Jennifer Merchant has developed her own technique for layering acrylic and paper and sculpting them into polished wearable art pieces. Each piece features lush, layered color, pattern, and playful optics.”

This ring is made with prints by Bridget Riley in acrylic and paper. It is a size 6 3/4 and measures approximately 1 1/4″ x 1″ x 1/2″. It sells for USD$174.

Jewel of the day: Amy Gregg Pink Star Amethyst Earrings

Love the pretty and unique cut of these earrings, into a star shape. By Amy Gregg and available from Roseark, these feature pile pink amethysts set in 18k gold.

They sell for USD$2000.


Jewel of the day: Gienia Etruscan Revival Inspired Pendant

This pretty Etruscan Revival style pendant by Gienia is part of their archive collection inspired by their travels. They explain, ”

The Gienia Archive Collection are pieces we created that are influenced by historically significant pieces we acquired on our travels. We think of them as ‘souvenirs’, in the spirit of some of the Etruscan Revival souvenirs we have collected. From our Double Headed Eternity Snake Ring (inspired by a piece we found from France which was made in the 1890s), to our Italian inspired Day-to-Night Earrings, we love to nd forgotten pieces and interpret them in a modern way.Designing jewelry, we have a keen interest in the history of objects, and it’s been amazing to uncover these pieces and return to some of the original (now largely forgotten) techniques that were used to craft jewelry historically. The insights we have gained from working this way have also really informed the way we approach crafting the other aspects of our collection, too. It’s been great to work with our talented craftspeople to resurrect some of these classical techniques.”

This piece sells for USD$2,450.
