Jewel of the day: Alexis Russell Long Double Spike Necklace

Alexis Russell describes this as simple, chic and edgy and I’d say that’s a fair assessment. They also dub it perfect for layering, and I can agree with that as well. Specs: 14kt gold-filled chain measures approximately 34″ long with lobster clasp; 14kt gold-filled spike measures approximately 2.5″ long ; oxidized sterling silver spike with pavé set diamonds measures approximately 2″ long and also available with a sterling chain or alternate length, upon request.”

This sells for USD$318.



Jewel of the day: Alexis Russell Large Rose Cut Diamond Ring

I know there are plenty of people who would look at this ring and be horrified that you can see inclusions and carbon spots, that it has a grey cast, that it isn’t, well, a sparkling piece of engagement ice a la Brides Magazine. But those are the precise things about it that I really love.

This ring by Alexis Russell uses a large and lovely rose cut diamond. I am sure it would be considered highly imperfect by many engagement ring shoppers. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Russell notes in its description, “Conflict free diamond weighs 3.77ctw and measures 11.5 x 9.5mm, band is 2mm wide.” The band is made of 14k white gold, and I believe the band and small diamond to the left of the centre stone may be a separately sold stacking band.

This piece is USD $2,995 and Russell has several other fabulous rings made with similar stones, if unblingy bling is your thing.

Jewel of the day: Alexis Russell large rough diamond earrings

If you like the idea of diamond stud earrings but not the cost, or you want something more unique, Alexis Russell has the answer. For USD $168, she offers rough cut diamonds set in 14k gold filled post settings. If nothing else, they are a fun, affordable conversation piece. And who really needs sparkle when you have size?

These are showing (as of this writing) as temporarily unavailable on the Giving Tree Jewelry web site but still part of the designer’s collection there.
