Jewel of the day: Luna Skye Graduated Diamond to Ruby Earrings

These are a pretty take on the classic diamond solitaire earring, with three solitaires, including a ruby. By Luna Skye, these are made with a 14k gold setting hold total ruby weight of .10 carats, and total diamond weight of .20 carats. They are sold as a pair for USD$700.

 

Jewel of the day: Julie Sion Coral Castafiore Earrings

These are just fun earrings for summer – colourful, and they don’t take themselves too seriously. Oh and … rhinestones. Always yes to rhinestones.

The settings are brass, accented with Swarovski crystal loops in yummy shades of peach. By Julie Sion, these sell for £99.

Jewel of the day: Annie Costello Brown Mini Rain Earrings

These sterling silver shoulder duster earrings (they are four inches long) by Annie Costello Brown pack quite the punch. Three strands of half circles give them an almost wind chime look, though if they tinkle like wind chimes, that would probably drive me a little bit crazy. But, as the saying goes, you have to suffer to be beautiful. No?

These sell for USD$295 at Net-A-Porter.

 

Jewel of the day: Katerina Psoma Nuwa Snake Drop Earrings

Fabulous and fierce, these snake motif earrings by Greek designer Katarina Psoma will amp up any outfit.  About Psoma: “Originally from the heart of Athens, Katerina Psoma developed her sense of culture and style while she was studying History of Art in Rome and London. During her travels, she accumulated a selection of fine stones and rare ornaments which later became the backbone of her first jewellery collection in 2001. The seasonal collections are mostly influenced by either artistic movements such as Jackson Pollock’s brushstrokes, or female personages such as 19th century women archeologists, have inspired previous collections. On the other hand, the influence of architectural proportions and Byzantine mosaics is strong throughout her Signature and Fine collections. The fine rosaries and long-chain necklaces, comprising up to 10 different elements, echo the art of uniting tiny tesserae.”

These earrings are,”carved resin coral snakes. Their lower part carries a white coral paste drop and yellow agate bead. Crystals set in gold-plated metal add an extra sparkle. The hooks are gold-plated 925 sterling silver. They offer the definite accessory for an impressive appearance. The pair is delivered in a satin pouch within our branded paper box.”

These sell for €145.

Jewel of the day: Shourouk Color Burst Drop Earrings

I kind of love these earrings, with their high/low mix of vibrant rhinestones mimicking a more expensive ruby piece, and the explosion of funfetti beads dropping from the bottom. These are by noted costume jeweller Shourouk: “With intricate embroidery, painted stones and ethereal details, Parisian designer Shourouk Rhaiem shows her affinity for the grandeur of classical jewelry – and has caught the attention of contemporary style icons ranging from Lady GaGa to Michelle Obama. She recommends contrasting her romantic yet vibrant pieces with simple silhouettes and casual, sporty looks. Here, her Color Burst drops will add a playful pop of color to any warm-weather look.”

Available at Anthropologie, these sell for USD$358.

PS: how did it get to be August so quickly?? And why does no one ever say, “Wow, winter is just passing in a flash this year!”

Jewel of the day: Sirciam Healing Stone Earrings

These give me a bit of a Flintstones vibe; I mean, can’t you see Wilma styling with these? By LA-based Sirciam, they are approximately 6 carats of blue apatite stones (cutely misspelled as appetite on their site) with a lasso of .09 diamonds set in 14 karat rose gold.

These sell for USD$940.

Jewel of the day: Carousel Jewels Rose Gold Tourmaline and Sliced Crystals Drop Earrings

These earrings would be a great summer piece, looking light and fresh and perfect with a fun summer dress. The designers, Carousel Jewels, note, “Our show stopping drop earrings are crafted in 925 sterling silver and finished with a matte 22 carat gold plating. They feature small tourmaline stones and sliced zircona crystals. The diameter of the upper part measures 1 cm and the lower part measures 3.5 cm in diameter. The overall length of the earrings measures 5.2 cm.”

These sell for £165.

Jewel of the day: Modern Weaving Drop Earrings

Modern Weaving‘s clean, contemporary pieces are not for the shy. These are four inches long, made of brass with a sterling silver post.

They sell for USD$120.

 

Jewel of the day: Charlotte Valkeniers Cluster Earclimbers

I love the mixed metals and the geometric look of these ear climbers from Charlotte Valmkeniers. She notes, “These stand-out earrings measure are a combination of sterling silver and gold plated sterling silver. To support their weight they have both a normal post as well as a clip-on system to secure this piece. They also features a range of Swarovski Crystals and are perfect to compliment any evening look.”

These sell for £288.

Jewel of the day: Joana Salazar Fernanda Diamond and Tourmaline Earrings

And now for something really blingy. These Fernanda earrings by Joana Salazar are a diamond feast set with paraiba tourmalines. The 18k white gold setting holds 6.5 carats of oval tourmalines, and 5.84 carats of white diamonds.

This sells for £79,960.
