  • Zodiac Jewelry – It’s Baaack!

    Just when you think the 70’s are behind you and you can safely stash your mood rings and maxi-skirts (wait–they’re back in style too!), zodiac jewelry reappears. If you’d like to keep your astrological sign close to your heart, we can create a piece especially designed for you and your sign!

    Zodiac jewelry, popular in the 1970s, is making the rounds once again. This time, zodiac jewelry was made popular with the help of the Valentino Spring/Summer 2014 show in which zodiac pendants were shown double wrapped around the neck and wrists.

    Luckily, you do not have to spend a lot to take advantage of this particular trend as the mythical-looking creatures of the zodiac are available from many high street retailers as well as major design houses and for a fraction of the cost.




  • Snake Inspired Jewelry Making a Hiss

    Regardless of what you think of the creature, the jewelry renditions of this oft-feared reptilian has been rearing its head.

    From the front, Naomi Watts’s Bulgari necklace (left) looks like a simple silver chain encrusted with diamonds, but when she turns around, we see a head grabbing a gem-studded tail. The style has also slithered to other parts of the body: Dakota Fanning has donned a pair of wrapped bracelets and there’s a serpent lurking among the many rings of Jessica Alba. (But no one has topped Sophia Bush’s spooky snake ear cuff from a few weeks ago!)




  • Edible Jewelry for the Chocolate Inclined

    “There’s a relationship between the satisfaction of purchasing jewelry for yourself and the high you get from having chocolate. It’s luxurious and gratifying.”

    Philadelphia-based designer Anthony Lent has teamed up with a chocolatier to create gourmet chocolates that mimic his sculptural jewelry.

    Lent’s “Kiss me” ring and “Moonface” motifs are the first to be candied by Francisco Migoya of Hudson Chocolates in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.


    [above] The “Kiss Me S’more” chocolate, made with milk chocolate, crushed graham crackers and toasted mini marshmallows with a dark chocolate outer shell and gold luster dust to reflect Lent’s 18-karat gold designs.

    Lent’s 18-karat gold necklace from the Anatomy collection rests on its chocolate counterpart, which is 6 inches long.

  • March’s Everchanging Birthstone – Aquamarine

    What a varied and multi-faceted (excuse the jeweler’s pun) birthstone for the month of March. As the author of this JCK article points out, the colors of aquamarine can range from “the palest, most delicate shade of sea blue to one so vivid it can be confused for blue topaz.” Check out the many faces of March’s aquamarine:

    Those born in the month of March should consider themselves lucky: They have one magnificent gemstone to call their own. Ranging from the palest, most delicate shade of sea blue to one so vivid it can be confused for blue topaz, it’s hard to find a gemstone, metal type, or clothing ensemble, for that matter, that won’t pair well with aquamarine.
