Jewel of the day: Blue Nile Corda Cushion-Cut Citrine Halo Earrings

Topaz is November’s birthstone, and you can get it in more than the classic gold shade. (Blue is a big favourite now.) These traditional topazes from Blue Nile are set in a halo of white topaz stones and set in sterling silver. If topaz isn’t your thing at all, they are also available in other stones.

This sells for USD$300.



Jewel of the day: Blue Nile Petite Ruby and Diamond Huggie Earrings

These pretty, sparkly earrings by Blue Nile truly do hug the ear lobe, but the rubies give enough colour that they don’t simply fade away due to their smaller size.

A half-inch in diameter, you can also opt for blue or pink sapphires or emeralds set in 14k white gold, and the price makes it easier to buy more than one: USD$495. So if you bought your mother an appliance for Mother’s Day today, (whomp, whomp, whomp) unless she asked for that, they ship expedited if amends need to be made.

Jewel of the day: Monique Lhuillier Petal Garland Diamond Engagement Ring

Monique Lhuillier is known for her dramatic evening wear, and lately bridal wear as well. Now she has branched out into jewellery with an engagement ring collection being offered at Blue Nile. The prices are for the settings alone, which seems a bit odd to me as most people would likely want to know at least a starting price for the ring with stones.

This setting is available in platinum for USD$3,450 or 18k rose gold for USD$2,490. The site notes the ring has a total carat weight of .5, which is either an error, or a whole lot of very tiny stones in a very expensive setting to me.

Jewel of the day: Blue Nile Multicolour Gemstone Hoop Earrings

Inside-outside hoop earrings have had a fairly long shelf life as a jewellery trend. This pair by Blue Nile is different from the more popular diamond-set hoops, featuring amethyst, peridot, garnet, blue topaz and citrine in sterling silver. So no need to obsess over matching with your outfit. They are also kind to your wallet.

These sell for USD$155 and also come in single coloured stone options.
