Jewel of the day: Gray Reid Antique Gold and Enamel Earrings

There is something about blue enamel on yellow gold that is timeless and classic. These earrings, which look to be Victorian, are offered by Australian firm Gray Reid. No price or details on the item so contact the vendor if you are interested in purchasing.


Jewel of the day: Loren Stewart Diamond Drop Earrings

Nine karat gold was broadly used in the UK, whereas 10k gold was more of North American thing. These 9k earrings by design team Loren Stewart are priced similarly to some higher end costume jewelry, so they are an affordable way of getting the real thing.

Net-A-Porter notes, “Loren Stewart founders Rachel Loren, Satya Stewart and Annah Stewart-Zafrani began their design journey by melting down old jewelry and creating unique pieces for friends. These handmade 9-karat gold drop earrings have diamond studs – the precious stones total 0.06-carats – and delicate ‘mirror’ chains that swish as you move. We think they look perfect with loose tresses.”

These sell for USD$565.


Jewel of the day: Opal Button Earrings

These earrings are made for the person who is too afraid to wear opals because they are concerned they may be too fragile to hold up to every day wear.

Dated to the Edwardian period, they are offered for sale by UK-based The Antique Jewellery Company. The opals are set in15k yellow gold settings for pierced ears. These sell for £975.

Jewel of the day: Pomellato M’ama Non M’ama Rose Gold Topaz Earrings

Pomellato has taken the easy but sophisticated Italian jewellery style and made it accessible globally. These chic and wearable earrings are a great every day staple. Made in 18k yellow gold and set with topaz (other stones are available), they retail for USD$2,400 from Net-A-Porter.

Jewel of the day: Dean Davidson Marquise Earrings

When you fight the crowds to go Boxing Day shopping, it makes the effort feel worthwhile if you come home with a thing of two. These Marquise earrings by Dean Davidson did end up following me home. Got them on sale at Nordstrom, but they are still selling for full price on Davidson’s website (CDN$250).

They are gold plating over brass, set with white topaz (they also come with a black onyx option). Happy Boxing Day to me!

Jewel of the day: Ted Muehling Pearl Cluster Hoop Earrings

These elegant Ted Muehling earrings are perfect for the minimalist in your life. Made in 14k yellow gold and adorned with freshwater pearls, they measure 2 inches.

These sell for USD$890 from Bergdorf Goodman.

Jewel of the day: Bottega Veneta Brown Oxidized Silver Cubic Zirconia Earrings

Bottega Veneta has been using various cubic zirconia stones in their jewellery for a few years now. Remember when CZs were the cheap, mall alternative to the real thing? Baby, they’ve come a long way…

These pretty earrings are set with brown stones that look almost peach in their photos. BV notes, “Ultra-chic and eye-catching, these drop earrings feature a sparkling flower pendant composed of brilliant-cut cubic zirconia stones. Each stone is hand-enameled by Bottega Veneta’s master jewelers—an exclusive technique of the house—giving it a unique color effect that shines at every turn. The silver hook fastening is engraved with the iconic intrecciato motif.”

These sell for USD$550.

Jewel of the day: J. Crew Crystal Chandelier Earrings

Are you ready to up the bling ante yet for the holidays? Or maybe just because (my usual excuse)? J. Crew is an ever reliable source of cheap and cheerful faux jewels and these earrings would make a sparkly addition for your party circuit.

But move fast if you do need them for the holidays as these are available online only for USD$65 (and take 40% off at the time of writing).


Jewel of the day: Beladora Diamond Wing Earrings

These earrings offered by Beladora were made relatively recently (circa 1980-1990) but use a tried and true motif, the wing. These are pave set with white diamonds totalling 1.8 carats set in yellow 18k gold. Though contemporary, they are a lovely classic with great presence on the ear.

These are priced at USD$2,350.

Jewel of the day: Bethamy Linton Florescence Earrings

From Australia come these anodized aluminum earrings by Bethamy Linton. Hand cut and polished, they are hung from sterling silver wires.

The discs measure 25mm in diameter, and they are 80 mm in length. These sell for AUD$290.
