Jewel of the day: 1-100 Medallion Stick Earrings

These rough hewn sterling silver earrings are by 1-100, a collaboration between Graham Tabor and Miguel Villalobos. They are described as handcrafted sterling silver earrings with hanging rectangular medallion and stick pendants with a drop of approximately 1.75 inches.

These sell for USD$350.

Jewel of the day: Miriam Haskell Pearl and Crystal Earrings

Though I have never been a collector of vintage Miriam Haskell pieces, I have found myself entranced by their current production. Not really sure why, as it’s not that different in design other than that it tends to be a bit more readily available.

These pearl and crystal earrings are made to order and hand done, and take up to seven weeks for delivery. They are described as, “medium sized chandelier earrings – Antique silver plated filigree hand-wired with pave Swarovski crytals. Earrings drop 1.75 inches and are 1 inch at widest point.Light in weight with clip backs.”

These sell for USD$460.

Jewel of the day: Nicolette Absil Elongated Chrysanthemum Drop Earrings

These made-to-order earrings by Nicolette Absil feature her delicate enamel work. About the designer: “My work focuses on process and using enameling, the ancient art of fusing glass to metal, in a more contemporary manner. Nature serving as my inspiration, I illustrate serene and delicate imagery that I fuse into enamel and then set the work into hand fabricated settings. Recently, I have been working with multiples and repeating forms, as well as exploring the life cycles of flowers, capturing different stages of their existence.”

Chrysanthemum petals make for an effective design motif on the small surface of earrings. These are made with sterling silver, copper, vitreous enamel, graphite, 24k gold, and sell for USD$180.

 

Jewel of the day: Arman Sarkisyan Sapphire Stud Earrings

As a September baby, I’m partial to sapphires. Arman Sarkisyan offers these cabochon sapphire stud earrings ringed with diamonds. The setting is 22k yellow gold and oxidized sterling silver.

These are currently on sale at Single Stone San Marino, from $4,310.00 to the new price of $2,586.00.

Jewel of the day: Jewelyrie Eclipse Earrings

I’m liking the curb chain motif in these earrings, made lighter with the blue hue of the tanzanite stone. By Jewelyrie, these “tanzanite, diamond and 18k white gold post earrings from Huan Wang’s Eclipse collection convey an amalgamation of beautiful contrasts imagined from the illumination of space, from the intricate metalwork to the rich prismatic of Tanzanite centre piece. Featuring the signature Eclipse composition of infinity twist halo encircled Tanzanite centre stone that hosts eight twinkling diamonds, accompanied by a rimmed texture disc.”

These sell for USD$1,320 and there are matching pieces in this design.

Jewel of the day: Ruben Loves Me Ballerz Classic Drop Earrings

Yeah, that’s a mouthful. But these are fun, practical everyday earrings offered by Ruben Loves Me. They note they are made, “with a 14mm exquisitely selected round gemball that is cradled in handcrafted silver or oxidized silver. Each side has a round cabochon that stems from a curved ear wire.” They are made with blue/black tiger eye and an Arizona turquoise cabochon in sterling silver.

These sell for USD$216.

Jewel of the day: Jacquie Aiche Ethiopian Opal Pyramid Baguette Hoop Earrings

Here is something a bit different in the way of a hoop earring from LA-based Jacquie Aiche. These hoop earrings are set with opals in a triangular shape (or as she terms them, pyramids). They are available in 14k yellow, white or rose gold. Though the site description says these are, “pave diamond double Ethiopian pyramid and square baguette hoops” I’m missing the diamonds and baguettes (which are generally rectangular and not square?) Despite the confusing description, they are pretty and a neat take on the classic hoop.

These sell for USD$3,815.

Jewel of the day: Aesa Jewelry Chain Star Earrings

These have a cool vibe that’s a cross between rich hippie and boho meets Goth. By Aesa, they describe these earrings this way: One-of-a-kind emerald, 14k gold and oxidized sterling silver hanging chain stud earrings. Measuring approximately 1.25″, these earrings, which feature emeralds that are set upside down, are chic and unique.”

They sell for USD$845.

Jewel of the day: Trumpet and Horn Georgian Style Chandelier Earrings

Actual Georgian era jewelry is hard to find and expensive to acquire. Trumpet and Horn has created these diamond chandelier earrings in the Georgian style. The site is light on specs in terms of diamond weight and size, but from the photos these seem to be rather substantial. They sell for USD$12,500; contact the site for more info.
