Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

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.

 

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: 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: 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: Baublebar Crystal Skull Bracelet

Though I am not the biggest fan of inexpensive jewelry that seems disposable by virtue of its low price, this USD$36 bracelet from Baublebar is a bit of a cheap and cheerful exception. Not sure how well or how long the glued on crystals would last, but it’s a fun piece for what it is, especially if you like skull motifs.

Jewel of the day: Alor Classique Cable Bracelet

I’ve become a fan of the steel cable jewellery produced by Philippe Charriol and Alor. This piece by the latter takes their signature steel cables and uses them in a delicate and pretty way. A benefit of the material – no tarnish. There is a .01 diamond in the small tag attached to the closure but otherwise this is stone free.

This sells for USD$475.

Jewel of the day: Faris Bump Cuff

Faris hand makes its jewellery in Seattle. This bracelet/cuff, available in both brass and sterling silver, is a clean and polished look for everyday wear. The price is USD$275-$395, available from the seller online.

Jewel of the day: Kate Spade Do the Twist Bangle Bracelet

Sometimes, you just want something a little bit fun and unexpected and this bracelet by Kate Spade has a twist – literally. The thin bangle (you know you would want more than one) has a literal twist in the metal. If you are OCD, probably not the best piece for you, but it’s a fun take on a classic piece.

This sells for USD$58 from Nordstrom and is available in seven colours.

Jewel of the day: Brilliant Earth Olive Branch Bracelet

Peace is always the right sentiment and the olive branch is a centuries old symbol. This would make a lovely gift, and can be worn in a stack with other pieces if that is your preference.

By Brilliant Earth, it is made in sterling silver and sells for USD$125.

Jewel of the day: Andrew Grima Yellow Quartz Cuff

London society jeweller Andrew Grima’s legacy lives on today, as carried on by his family members. This vintage cuff, circa 1973, is evocative of the period, with textured 18k yellow gold housing a large (328 carat) yellow quartz stone.

The bracelet is actually being offered by the Grima firm, and can be obtained through 1st Dibs online for USD$37,152.07.

My interview with Francesca Grima can be found here; the family has a fascinating history you will want to read.
