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.

Oscars 2017: Thank you, Ruth Negga #oscars #academyawards2017 #redcarpet

One of the first arrivals to the Oscars red carpet, actress in a leading role for Loving nominee Ruth Negga gives me life – and hope that these Academy Awards will not once again be a jewel-free zone. That hope will probably be dashed if previous years are anything to by by, but a girl can dream of bling. And does.

Negga has been working with Gemfields and sporting some very noticeable bling in the lead up to the big night. Case in point: this headpiece/tiara and matching earrings in rubies and diamonds (though The Hollywood Reporter is saying the headpiece is by Irene Neuwirth). They are stunning on her, look great with her dress, and are fitting for the occasion. I am loving it – pun intended and deserved.

Gloomy February days call for something cheerful and, yes, rhinestone-y. These earrings by Swiss designer Helena Dia are happy and not a little bit out there. They are made with Czech crystals and fabric tassels and can be yours for Swiss Francs 66.
