Jewel of the day: Slate and Tell Paw Pendant

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.


Jewel of the day: Shaesby Pyramid Ring

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.”

This sells for USD$2,475.

Jewel of the day: Annie Costello Brown Mini Rain Earrings

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.


Jewel of the day: Charlotte Chesnais Art Ring Set

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.

Jewel of the day: Sophie Buhai Margaritte Bracelet

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.


Jewel of the day: Maya Magal Parallel Bracelet

Lond0n-based Maya Magal offers sleek and modern pieces. About the designer: “Maya Magal, a modern British jewellery brand in London, has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2013.

Jewel of the day: Carousel Jewels Rose Gold Tourmaline and Sliced Crystals Drop Earrings

These earrings would be a great summer piece, looking light and fresh and perfect with a fun summer dress. The designers, Carousel Jewels, note, “Our show stopping drop earrings are crafted in 925 sterling silver and finished with a matte 22 carat gold plating. They feature small tourmaline stones and sliced zircona crystals. The diameter of the upper part measures 1 cm and the lower part measures 3.5 cm in diameter.

Jewel of the day: Monica Vinader Baja Deco Ring

This pretty piece by Monica Vinader has a quiet, elegant presence. This version has a green onyx stone (though it is available with pave diamonds for £195) and is either rose or yellow gold plating over sterling silver.

This version sells for £95.

Jewel of the day: Annie Pennington Powder Coated Silver Bracelets

Giving these stackable bracelets a pop of colour makes these pieces by Annie Pennington stand out, quite literally. She explains, “Each of these bright, candy-colored powder-coated bangles features a single cluster of wrapped fine-silver wire. Some bangles feature plain, bright silver wire; others have been patinated to enhance the wraps.” Each bracelet sells for USD$40.

Jewel of the day: Sorelle NYC Gia Ring

Sometimes, you just want a piece of plain, nicely made jewellery. This sterling silver ring by Sorelle NYC offers a clean look without too much fuss, if you want to feel dressed down but still adorned.
