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: 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: Anne Sisteron Diamond Inlay Pearl Necklace

Summer is the season for graduations and weddings, and this would make a perfect gift for the graduate, bridesmaid or bride. By LA-based Anne Sisteron, a .03 carat diamond is inlaid into a pearl, set and hung from a 14k white gold chain. They give the pearl measurement as “1.00” but I’m frankly not sure what that means, as I’ve only ever seen pearl size expressed in mm.

This sells for USD$395.

Jewel of the day: Anissa Kermiche Gold and Pearl Ring

Pretty and sophisticated, this gold ring by Anissa Kermiche takes the supposed fustiness out of pearls. The oval shaped ring in 14k gold is set with a single small pearl (dimensions not stated), and sells for USD$461 from Matches Fashion.

Jewel of the day: Bibi van der Velden Baroque Pearl Claw Ring

Yes to pearls. Although being the klutz I am, I know I would probably knock this puppy right out of its setting. However, acknowledging this doesn’t prevent me from coveting it.

By Bibi van der Velden, the ring’s shank is set with diamonds, and the pearl itself is studded with tiny pieces of gold. This sells for €4,830.

Jewel of the day: Chan Luu Leather Bolo Necklace

So it’s off with the glitter and glitz and back to the routine, and possibly less showy jewelry? Say it isn’t so! But if it is, this would work well for the upcoming festival season, or just the general pared down, post-holiday feeling.

By Chan Luu, best known for beaded wrap bracelets, is this leather and cultured pearl necklace. Available from Nordstrom, they also show it with a few chokers (so much for pared down). This sells for USD$90.

Jewel of the day: Pia Jewellery Heart and Soul Ring

I’m grateful that silver remains an affordable metal as I often prefer it to gold or platinum. This pretty ring by the UK’s Pia Jewellery is a case in point. It’s set with three freshwater pearls, and two garnets, and has an artisanal look that belies its £30 price. Perfect when you have more flair than cash at hand.

Jewel of the day: Leivankash Dagger Pearl Ring

This ring is an interesting combo of materials: by designer Leivankash, it is plated in 22K yellow gold and set with a freshwater pearl. It’s part of the designer’s Damocles collection, with the tiny dagger a play on words (symbols?) of the sword of Damocles…

This is also available in rose gold and silver plated bronze and sells for £240.

Jewel of the day: Natasha Zinko Gold, Sapphire and Pearl Earrings

These shoulder duster earrings by Natasha Zinko are some seriously large pieces of ear candy … Available from Net-A-Porter, the site notes, “Natasha Zinko’s earrings are from the London-based designer’s ‘Baroque’ collection. This ornate pair is handcrafted from 18-karat gold in the shape of hearts and set with 0.13-carats of rose-cut white sapphires. The freshwater pearl drops elegantly sway with each movement.”
