Jewel of the day: Blue Nile Fancies by the Yard Asscher Cut Diamond Bracelet

Diamonds rarely become old when it comes to jewelry but some styles are rather more well worn than others. The diamond by the yard station bracelet introduced by Elsa Peretti at Tiffany started an enduring craze. Those bracelets are typically set with round stones, but this Blue Nile offering features Asscher cut stones weighing, they say, approximately 1.20 carats set in 18k white gold.

This pretty piece will set you back USD$3,000.



Jewel of the day: Agmes Small Cliff Cuff

Less definitely can be more. This sterling silver cuff by Agmes is utter simplicity. A plain, polished cuff with one raised, beveled edge. Perfection.

It sells for USD$610 from Barneys New York.

Jewel of the day: Ecrou de Cartier Bracelet

Cartier has made bank on the simple designs of screws and nails, first with the Love bracelet, then with the Juste un Clou, and most recently with the Ecrou.

This is available in white, yellow and pink gold. Cartier notes, “A transformation of the ordinary to the extraordinary: the new Écrou de Cartier collection. A bold new design, Écrou de Cartier embodies daring and limitless style. Forceful and exquisite at the same time, it makes a striking statement of sophistication.”

This white gold version sells for USD$7,050.


Jewel of the day: DeBeers Phenomena Frost Bracelet

DeBeers coined the very effective slogan Diamonds are Forever and it’s still pretty evocative of the durability of the stone, if not necessarily any sentiment behind it. I’m fairly certain the larger the stone, the less sentiment there actually is, as these tend to be kept as financial buffers. But if you just want something loaded with diamonds and price be damned, this DeBeers Phenomena Frost bracelet will fill the bill.

There is no price (contact them to ask) but in their unique marketing way, they note, “Echoing the power and grace of nature and the miraculous wonders formed by water this Phenomena Frost Bracelet scintillates with fire, life and brilliance as it echoes the juxtaposing formations of icy formations. Total approximate carat weight 16.94ct..”

Jewel of the day: Jean-Pierre 18k Yellow Gold Linked Entangled Diamond Bracelet

This bracelet is the kind of piece that is complete on its own. If you like to wear multiple items, it has the heft and look of a multi-item stack. It also would look great on its own.

By LA’s Jean-Pierre, it is made with 18k gold chains, some set with diamonds. This sells for USD$5,480.

Jewel of the day: Aurelie Bidermann Cheyenne Black Agate Cuff

It’s nice to see that in the midst of tiny and minimal and stacked, there is still a place for a bold, chunky cuff. This one, by Aurelie Bidermann, is gold plated with black agate accents.

It sells for USD$780 from Saks Fifth Avenue.

Jewel of the day: Tiffany HardWear Gold Link Bracelet

I haven’t been a huge fan of some of the latest Tiffany collections. But I find this piece to be more in keeping with something that’s wearable because the design is nice, and which doesn’t scream Tiffany. Part of their new HardWear collection, inspired by the “spirit of the women of New York City,” this 18k rose gold piece has narrow links clasped with a 1.70 carat diamond pave closure. Considering what a Cartier Love or Juste un Clou bracelet sells for, its USD$12,000 price tag is not bad at all.

Jewel of the day: Psihii Alto Bracelet

Toronto and Greece based Psihii offers some clean and fairly unisex looks. Here a bracelet they describe this way, “Through the manipulation of various materials and expressions, these artisan designs are founded in the principle of mixing art and wearability. This is the art of style. 6mm Lava rock layered with 4mm Onyx gemstones and black Greek wax cord, accented with silver rings and with our signature .925 Sterling Silver PSIHII toggle closure.
Adjustable to size. Entirely handmade in our PSIHII workshop.”

The site offers measurement guidelines. This sells for USD$103.52.


Jewel of the day: Coeur de Lion Cat Eye Bracelet

If you’re looking for something colourful that won’t break the bank, here’s the thing: a pretty bracelet by Coeur de Lion.

Available from The Giving Tree Gallery, it’s described as, “Rhinestone rondelles with Swarovski Crystals combined with stainless steel, polaris and fine glass cylinders on adjustable chain with lobster clasp.”

This sells for USD$115.


Jewel of the day: Caroline Neron Bracelet Moderniste

This is one of those costume jewellery pieces that looks like it cost more than it did.

By Caroline Neron, it’s plated metal with a nicely designed clasp. It’s accented with Swarvoski crystals all along the bracelet.

This sells for USD$95.
