Jewel of the day: Blue Nile Petite Ruby and Diamond Huggie Earrings

These pretty, sparkly earrings by Blue Nile truly do hug the ear lobe, but the rubies give enough colour that they don’t simply fade away due to their smaller size.

A half-inch in diameter, you can also opt for blue or pink sapphires or emeralds set in 14k white gold, and the price makes it easier to buy more than one: USD$495. So if you bought your mother an appliance for Mother’s Day today, (whomp, whomp, whomp) unless she asked for that, they ship expedited if amends need to be made.

Jewel of the day: Huckleberry Ltd Baguette Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are a classic and a staple in most women’s jewellery boxes. They can go from demure and conservative to huge and edgy. Inside outside diamond hoops were a thing for a while (hey, I still love my pair and wear them nearly every day – sue me).

This pair by Huckleberry Ltd takes baguette diamonds and channel sets them inside 18k yellow gold hoops. Total carat weight is 1.70 and the listing on the Roseark site notes that they are sold individually for USD$7,000 each.

Jewel of the day: Alice Cicolini Kimono Hoop Earrings

It’s wonderful when someone takes a fairly common form – in this case, the hoop earring – and creates them anew with a twist.

These Alice Cicolini  earrings have small balls with a Japanese motif. Her site notes, “23.5ct gold & vitreous enamel balls, 18ct gold hoops, polished white opal. The Kimono collection explores the Japanese tradition of containing pattern within circular forms. Handmade in India & London, these earrings are inspired by evenings spent under the carved pillars surrounding the courtyard at Anokhi Farm, the home of Faith & John Singh in Jaipur, where Alice has spent many evenings designing with the sound of peacocks calling to each other in the distance. The pattern that is hand carved on miniature scale comes from diverse sources – miniature painting from the Royal Jodhpur collection, antique kimonos and 17th century Syrian damasks.”

They sell for £3,600.

Jewel of the day: Roberto Coin Woven Rose Gold Hoop Earrings

A pair of gold earrings should be in every woman’s jewelry box. Hoops are classic, elegant and just plain wearable and the woven 18k rose gold in this pair by Roberto Coin gives them a little something special.

They are available from Ross-Simons for USD $780.

Jewel of the day: Vince Camuto Leather Lace Hoop Earrings

I read the words “leather lace” and now have an ear worm of Stevie Nicks warbling “Leather and Lace.” Thanks for nothing, Vince Camuto.

These earrings are actually quite pretty, with suede wrapped metal and a single gold bead to add a little bit of shine. The web site doesn’t specify the size or the metal (assuming base metal) but they sell for USD $48.

Take it away, Stevie.

Jewel of the day: Borgioni Winding Snake Earrings

These large hoop earrings will definitely make a statement. Hoops can be, well, predictable, but these are anything but.

By Borgioni, and available from Fragments, they measure a very generous 2 inches in diameter. They are made of 18k rose gold inlaid with ebony, and set with brown diamonds and rubies.

They sell for USD $16,395.

Jewel of the day: Jack Vartanian Light Comet Diamond Earrings

These are a unique and lovely change from the typical diamond studs or hoops: a swoosh of diamonds, designed to look like a comet on the ear. The form is simple, but has a dramatic effect.

From Jack Vartanian, these are set in 18k white gold with graduated diamonds totalling .75 carats total weight. They are available from Vartanian’s online shop for USD $4800.

Jewel of the day: William Noble enamel and diamond earrings

Plique a jour enamel is lovely and difficult to make. It involves creating tiny cells of melted glass that fit into cells (or settings) with no backs to them, providing a translucent, see through appearance much like stained glass.

These lovely hoop earrings offered by William Noble are made with blue enamel and set with .66 carats of diamonds. Neither gold content nor price are specified (see my beef on this in yesterday’s post…)
