Jewel of the day: Esther Assouline Pink Sapphire & Diamond Long Necklace

This necklace by Esther Assouline is perfect for someone who likes the jewellery more delicate. Sold by ABC Home and Carpet, they note, “The golden pendant features a pink sapphire set in bezel, accented by white diamonds. Hand-etched details trace back to the origin of goldsmithing, adding depth and character to the jewelry piece. Pink sapphire is the stone of wisdom and strength of heart, resilience and spiritual healing. Handmade in France.”

This sells for USD$$6,600.


Jewel of the day: Colette Jewelry Dripping Flowers Necklace

When it comes to jewelry, the words drippy and dripping are generally good things, and so it is here. This necklace by Colette Jewelry uses diamonds on a neck wire to give the piece movement and fresh perspective.

The 18k white gold wire supports pave set black and white diamond flowers. This sells for USD$9,500.


Jewel of the day: Eriness Resist Necklace

There seems to be a lot these days to which people might want to voice their opposition. Now you can say it in sterling (or gold, or embellished with diamonds). This “Resist” necklace by Eriness is described this way: “Resistance is Empowerment – now more than ever. The RESIST Necklace represents strength and unity for all women around the world. We want you to be proud of the woman you are while wearing your RESIST Necklace. We stand together to spread love, strength and hope.”

This version sells for USD$130; in 14kgold it’s $425 and with diamonds in gold, $750. Twenty per cent of the proceeds of the gold versions go to Planned Parenthood.

Jewel of the day: Antique Victorian Snake Necklace

Although this necklace dates from 1860, it has a fresh, contemporary look to it. The Victorians loved the snake motif, as it symbolized everlasting love. This piece, offered by Jewellery Discovery, is rendered in gold (karat is not specified) accented with enamel and pearls. The photo seems to show ruby set eyes as well.

This sells for £11,700.

Jewel of the Day: I Don’t Have A Sister Bones Glass Necklace

Well, you won’t see this piece coming and going: bones made of glass formed into a necklace. It’s way more chic than anything Wilma Flintstone would have worn. By I Don’t Have A Sister, this is offered by Archives Toronto. They explain, “Idonthaveasister jewels are crafted of the finest materials and outstanding quality. Each piece is designed in Paris and handmade in Murano using 13th century glass blowing techniques. Small imperfections are the trademark of this unique process.This collection is inspired by Ex Voto with a touch of Dali. Glass is shaped to reproduce anthropomorphic forms. Bones, lips, hands and eyes are meticulously blown to reach a Surrealist mood.”

This is currently on sale for CDN$234.

Jewel of the Day: Vintage Ruby and Pearl Bib Necklace

As you may have noticed, I’m in a vintage mood this week. This fabulous multi-strand ruby and pearl necklace is a great piece of older costume jewellery with lots of life and style left in it.

Offered by Forgotten Romance they note, “Five gold tone chains are loaded    with faux pearl and fuchsia rhinestone charms. Each rhinestone is individually set in gold tone setting with prongs. It’s very dressy and will make you feel like a queen. Necklace    will fit up to 16″ neck. The bib portion is 7.5″ by 4″ wide. Excellent condition.”

Jewel of the day: Valentine Rouge Opal Station Necklace

I now have several pieces by Toronto-based Valentine Rouge and I’m becoming a big fan. The jewellery is meticulously made with quality materials, often semi-precious, which make the designs look richer than they actually are.

This necklace, whose sister piece I saw in person on the weekend, is made of pink opals and and sapphire stations with blue topaz. It can easily be worn doubled for more versatility (worn as a single strand it measures 40 inches).

This sells for CDN$389.

Jewel of the day: Alex Monroe Fritillary Flower Necklace

This necklace by the UK’s Alex Monroe was done after the Japanese tsunami. The site notes, “Following the Tsunami of 2011, we were all thinking of our friends and loyal customers in Japan. Alex had been trying to grow Fritillary flowers in his garden for years, and this was the year that they finally bloomed. After such a difficult time for Japan, this flower suddenly became very symbolic of the idea of hope and regeneration. A Fritillary flower with three citrines hanging inside. The necklace is available in either solid sterling silver or 22ct gold plate. The pendant measures 3.3 cm from the top of the hook to bottom of the flower, with a 1.3 cm flower. The citrines measure approximately 0.4 cm. This necklace comes on a 24 inch chain. All Alex Monroe jewellery is handmade in the UK.”

This sells for £174.

Jewel of the day: Vrai & Oro Trillion Diamond Necklace

So you’re in the mood for some new bling but don’t have the bucks for something big and sparkly? Little and sparkly can also work quite well, as attested to by this bezel set diamond necklace by Vrai & Oro.

This is set in 14k gold (your choice of white, yellow or rose) set with a .15 carat diamond. This sells for USD$555 for a pendant with an attached 15 inch chain or $560 for an 18 inch chain.
