The Tiffany “Return to Tiffany” collection has been popular for many years and often serves as the “gateway drug” to more expensive pieces from the store. The firm has taken the now classic tags and jazzed them up with enamel and etching. Here, it features a facsimile of a hand drawn heart and arrow. Aw, sweet!
This sells for USD$150 and can be worn on a chain (sold separately).
Topaz is November’s birthstone, and you can get it in more than the classic gold shade. (Blue is a big favourite now.) These traditional topazes from Blue Nile are set in a halo of white topaz stones and set in sterling silver. If topaz isn’t your thing at all, they are also available in other stones.
Our fur babies can mean as much to us as family members and friends (for some, even more so!). This adorable cut out paw pendant lets you express your love for your animal, cat or dog. From Slate and Tell, they also offer bundles of personalized pendants expressing family relationships, love, milestones, and just fun.
This sells for USD$29; chain sold separately. It’s also available at various prices in gold plated silver and different gold karats and colours.
Shaesby’s work has morphed over time from tiny delicate gold pieces to more substantial sculptural work. Case in point: this pyramid ring made of gold and sterling silver. It reminds me a bit of Japanese mokume gane gold work.
The site notes, “This pyramid ring with a 22k yellow gold inlay and oxidized sterling silver pyramid and a 14k yellow gold base
ring is 5/8″ wide and 1/2″ tall. Our jewelry is designed and made one piece at a time in our Austin, Texas studio. Each style is specially handcrafted for you. At Shaesby, we work with sterling silver, 14k and 18k yellow, white and rose gold, and platinum upon request. all materials are responsibly and ethically sourced.”

These sterling silver shoulder duster earrings (they are four inches long) by Annie Costello Brown pack quite the punch. Three strands of half circles give them an almost wind chime look, though if they tinkle like wind chimes, that would probably drive me a little bit crazy. But, as the saying goes, you have to suffer to be beautiful. No?
These sell for USD$295 at Net-A-Porter.
I’m kind of in love with these rings by Charlotte Chesnais. They are sold as a set but of course can be worn separately or together. The site notes that the largest and smallest rings have a reflective finish and that the middle sized ring has a matte finish. These are 18k gold plated sterling silver (vermeil).
They sell for USD$1,100.
Los Angeles-based Sophie Buhai offered this as part of her spring collection. It’s sterling silver with an intriguing hook and eye clasp. This is offered as part of Nordstrom’s SPACE collection of emerging designers.
It sells for USD$1,500.
