Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Lang Antiques Brown Diamond Bow Ring

As coloured diamonds go, brown stones are probably seen as less desirable than their pink, blue or green cousins. I think yellow to brown coloured diamonds have an intrinsic warmth that adds something special.

This ring, from Lang Antiques, is described as, “A sparkling white diamond bow is knotted in the center with a bright and beautiful, natural brown oval-cut diamond weighing 1.22 carats in this fun and fabulous estate jewel, hand-fabricated in platinum. The striking and scintillating ‘cognac’ colored center stone is accompanied by a GIA Diamond Grading Report stating: Natural, Fancy Dark Yellowish Brown, Even color – VS1 clarity. A dazzling and distinctive engagement or right-hand ring. Currently ring size 6.”

It sells for USD$$4,750.

Jewel of the day: Pink Diamond Design Coffee Cup Ring

If coffee is your thing (yes, please) then you can show your caffeine love by wearing it on your hand. Which is better than wearing it on your sleeve, as that would just indicate shaky hands and a coffee mess.

From Etsy seller Pink Diamond Design this ring uses a tiny porcelain teacup and saucer and a little spoon, set on a ring band. Voila! Your java jones will never have to go unsatisfied, with no future fear of barista name misspellings. This sells for USD$20.

Jewel of the day: Baublebar Quartz Ring

Baublebar is a great destination for up to the minute trends at wallet friendly prices. This ring is set with what they are calling raw crystal, in a gold plated base metal ring setting accented with rhinestones. It sells for USD$32.

Jewel of the day: Jamie Joseph Opal Ring

Yes, still a sucker for beautiful opals, though I am too much of a klutz to have one in a ring. I don’t think they bring bad luck – I think I would, and the opal would suffer!

This piece is by Jamie Joseph and features an Australian opal bezel set in a 14k yellow gold setting with a silver shank. According to Voiage Jewelry, which is selling this piece, “From her studio in Seattle, Jamie Joseph meticulously handcrafts designs that showcase extraordinary gemstones with natural elegance. Everything from the stone cutting to the diamond setting is done within Jamie’s studio. Unfinished stones are each cut, reshaped and polished by her husband, Jeremy Joseph, allowing the natural integrity and beauty of the stone to be the guiding principal. Collectors are drawn to her jewelry for her use of stones, colors and unique shapes.”

This one-of-a-kind piece sells for USD$1,995.

Jewel of the day: 66Mint Fancy Yellow Diamond Ring

Though 66Mint touts itself as a destination for vintage pieces, this lovely ring looks fairly contemporary to me. There is nothing in the description to indicate otherwise, I don’t think: “Natural fancy yellow marquise cut diamond for 1.04ct, accented by 34 round brilliant cut diamonds for a total approximate weight of 0.36cts in an exclusive platinum and 18Kt yellow gold Sebastien Barier custom design ring. The color in this natural fancy diamond is evenly distributed. The ring is a size 6.75 and weighs 3.8 grams. GIA report #6157800718 is included.”

Jewel of the day: Plukka Bullet Ring

I like the industrial look of this ring, even though it was inspired by a bullet shape. You know, make jewellery, not war. Though designer Plukka says this about it: “Our iconic “Bullet” ring from our “Razor Mittens” collection evokes hardware, both military and industrial. A sharp, modern black rhodium spike juxtaposed against curvaceous lines makes for the sexiest accessory. It matches everything from Chanel to camouflage. Consider it a bulletproof wardrobe staple.”

So hardware more than weaponry. OK. Arming your finger will set you back USD$200. Bang!

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: Atelier Molinari Resile Precieuse Ring

I like the look of wide bands, though I don’t personally find them all that comfortable to wear. Maybe because I don’t have the kind of long, thin fingers they particularly suit. But for someone who does, this is a very pretty ring. By Anna Molinari, the Resile Precieuse ring is a honeycomb design in 18k yellow gold, set with .57 carats of diamonds.

It sells for £1,850 from the designer’s web site.

Jewel of the day: Karen Suen Jadeite and Diamond Ring

Karen Suen does very luxe haute jewellery of the “if you have to ask about price, you can’t afford it” kind. Still, it makes for lovely eye (and arm, and ear and finger and neck) candy.

Shown here is a ring with the following specs: set with fine jadeite 16.16cts, onyx 4.40cts, diamond 6.11cts mounted in 18K white gold.”

You can read more about Suen here … and ask the price if it’s calling to you.

Jewel of the day: Vale Jewelry Lumen Ring

In addition to opals, I am a sucker for rutillated or “tourmalated” quartz. This ring by Vale Jewelry has a lovely stone set east west into a 14k yellow, white or rose gold setting accented by diamonds.

It sells for USD$975.
