Jewel of the day: Ann Demeulemeester Feather Necklace

When I think of Belgian designer Ann Demeulemeester minimalist comes to mind, so this piece seems a bit out of character for her. It’s a light choice for the upcoming warm weather season (despite the dark shade) and would work well from day to evening.

From Farfetch, it’s made with cotton, a feather and crystal embellishment. It sells for USD$660.

Jewel of the day: Alexis Russell Long Double Spike Necklace

Alexis Russell describes this as simple, chic and edgy and I’d say that’s a fair assessment. They also dub it perfect for layering, and I can agree with that as well. Specs: 14kt gold-filled chain measures approximately 34″ long with lobster clasp; 14kt gold-filled spike measures approximately 2.5″ long ; oxidized sterling silver spike with pavé set diamonds measures approximately 2″ long and also available with a sterling chain or alternate length, upon request.”

This sells for USD$318.


Jewel of the day: Amarillo Jewelry Star Sisters Choker Necklace

So chokers are definitely in, but so is layering and stacking a bunch of delicate choker length necklaces to be worn at the same time. The Star Sisters piece is shown in this photo second down from the top (and all the necklaces are sold separately). If tasteful imagery isn’t your thing, they also sell a choker that spells out fuck. Because … you never know when you need to let people know that, all the time.

This is available in either sterling silver, or gold plated sterling. It sells for USD$188.


Jewel of the day: Stargaze Jewelry Opal Lili Choker Necklace

I am a sucker for opals and this is a pretty way to have or gift one at a good price. By Stargaze Jewelry, it’s available in either a gold or silver plated (over brass) 14 inch chain with a two inch extender. The size of the opal is not noted.

This sells for USD$39 and at the time of this writing, they were having a 40% off sale (which may not apply by the time this is posted).


Jewel of the day: Ginette NY Black Moon Onyx Boulier

Always nice to learn something new and today, I learned that boulier is French for abacus. So it’s now easy to see the design inspiration for this piece by Ginette NY.

The product description notes, “The dark luster of onyx has appeared in Frédérique Dessemond’s collections before, but the dazzling array of polished black beads on this necklace takes things to a whole new level. Twelve beautiful, dark onyx are joined by a single solid gold bead, just slightly larger in size. The subtle asymmetry and unexpected gleam of metal offer an edgy, but glamorous look that you can even layer over shorter, more petite necklaces. Lightly faceted bead chain echoes the rounded shape of the beads in a more delicate proportion for a perfect balance of widths. Finished with spring ring clasp closure and hallmarked logo plate. Designed in New York.”

This sells for USD$575.



Jewel of the day: Alex Mika Wishbone Necklace

The wishbone shape lends itself well to this kind of necklace and really, who couldn’t use a bit more luck? By sister-founded brand Alex Mika, this is sterling silver with either white or yellow gold plating, and synthetic sapphires. It sells for USD$70.



Jewel of the day: Harwell Godfrey Elements Collection “Water” Labradorite Necklace

This is part of a collection by Harwell Godfrey which they describe as, “Created as a celebration of the energy of stones, the Elements collection is based on the four astrological elements: Earth, Fire, Water and Air. Just as each element has its own distinct metaphysical properties, Harwell Godfrey has given each its own distinctive look and feel.

Choose from within your zodiac element to enhance existing qualities, or choose a complimentary element to promote a needed balance. “

This piece is made of labradorite set in leather with long fringe; it sells for USD$495.


Jewel of the day: Delftia Oxytocin Heart Necklace

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you like your celebrations less saccharine sweet, then this heart depicting the chemical oxytocin may be for you. By Etsy seller Delftia, they explain, “Oxytocin, called the “love hormone”, is artistically placed in a heart
pendant to make this metallic expression of love. But don’t worry — oxytocin isn’t just about “touchy feely” love. This organic molecule is also responsible for the more raunchy stuff.”

This piece is silver plated brass and sells for USD$51.



Jewel of the day: Lindsay Lewis Parallel Necklace

I like the 70s vibe of this brass and crazy lace agate necklace by Lindsay Lewis. Can’t you see Mary Richards, aka Mary Tyler Moore (or Rhoda Morgenstern) wearing this? It’s a pendant on a fairly long brass chain and as can be seen, plays well with others if you like layering pieces.

This sells for USD$117.




Jewel of the day: Luna Skye Written in the Stars Charm Necklace

Luna Skye pieces are designed to be worn in multiples. Here, the necklace (at bottom in the photo) is shown with two other pieces from their collection.

This one is, according to the site, “Inspired by the pattern of the swirling stars and cosmos, the constellation collection was created. Having always had a love affair with outer space, and been fascinated with how much magic our sky up above us holds, created the perfect breeding grounds to inspire this collection. How one constellation, one star, is connected to a vast network of galaxies above us. Like a star in the sky, we are all connected in some way while no two people being the same.”

The necklace is made of 14k yellow gold with .40 carats of white diamonds; it sells for USD$1,985.
