Jewel of the day: Little H Tahitian Pearl, Ruby and Gold Ring

I love the idea of hollowing out a pearl to put something equally precious inside, in this case, ruby crystals. By Los Angeles-based Little H, they describe this as, “A 14k yellow gold and carved Tahitian keshi pearl ring from Little h is filled with glittering rubies totaling 0.55 carats; a lovely take on a classic solitaire ring.”

This sells for USD$1,375.

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: Dolce & Gabbana Green Crystal Sicily Necklace

The collections of Dolce & Gabbana of late are over the top opulent – embroidery, embellishment, crystals. This necklace fits right into that aesthetic. The red rose clasp could be worn facing out or as a more discreet behind the head fastener. This sells for USD$340.

Jewel of the day: Vjera Vilicnik Red Velvet Roses Choker

Vjera Vilicnik was trained in the art of haute couture embroiders at the Ecole Lesage. This pretty choker, a velvet ribbon with three silk chiffon handmade flowers, is a simple but effective take on the choker trend and sells for a very reasonable £30.

 

Jewel of the day: Afew Jewels Boca Ring

Spain-based Afew Jewels explains this piece as, “18K rose gold with pink ruby and white diamonds 0.20 ctw. They come together. Closer and closer as they approach the moment, their moment. And then it happens: The kiss that created a dynasty.”

This sells for £1,340.

Jewel of the day: Ruifier Animaux Patch Cord Bracelet

OK, so these pieces are just so stinking cute. Ruifier offers a variety of animals in this collection, all adorable. This pup is made of 18k yellow gold, with chalcedony eyes and a diamond pave tongue, accented on either side with tiny paws. He sells for £895. Cat lovers, fear not, for there is a kitteh for you folks too. There is also a chimp and a panda in the collection.

Jewel of the day: Kattri Asymmetry Pearl Ring

Kattri has an intriguing website, but alas, it gives no detail at all on the pieces shown or how/where to buy them. This ring, part of the asymmetry collection, is summed up as, “Asymmetry, KATTRI’s third collection, was inspired by the shapes and lines used throughout art deco architecture. KATTRI has juxtaposed certain characteristics of art deco with a strong element of asymmetry to create a more unconventional and unique design. This features a new addition to KATTRI’s pieces; the iridescent and timeless pearl.”

You can contact the designer here if interested in more information or purchasing.

Jewel of the day: Nouvel Heritage Diamond Lunch With Mom Mood Bangle Bracelet

It is 4 millimeters wide and 16cm (6.3 inches) in diameter. There appears to be a pearl set on the bracelet, but it’s not mentioned in the description.

This sells for USD$2,250.

Jewel of the day: Virgins, Saints and Angels Magdalena Multistrand Necklace

The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an eagerly anticipated event, with dramatic markdowns on new merchandise for a short preview period.

This layered necklace by Virgins, Saints and Angels is “a Swarovski crystal-embellished medallion sparkles on a delicate necklace handcrafted in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with layered strands of rosary beads.”

Jewel of the day: Nancy Kraskin Opal Necklace

Though the price of gold has come down from its per ounce high of a few years ago, retail prices really have yet to follow suit, so it’s nice to come across gold pieces that are not astronomically priced. This necklace by Nancy Kraskin is made of 14k yellow gold, set with a small Australian opal accented by gold beads. it comes on an 18 inch chain. Even though the stone is small (described as 6mm), I love opals for their fiery personality!

This sells for USD$390.
