well, would you look at the pretties that arrived in my inbox this morning?
gorgeous, aren’t they? and not horribly expensive, by fine jewelry standards – prices top out around $650, but there’s quite a bit in the $300-400 range. i’d never, in a million years, have guessed they’re also eco-friendly. but i’m told it’s true: the designer uses only conflict-free gems and recycled 14k gold. as you all know, i take my eco with a grain of salt, but with pieces this gorgeous, i get to be socially responsible and chic…my favorite!
plus, i happen to adore her use of rough-cut gems, which i often prefer to the polished variety. personally, i’m jonesing for that gorgeous rough diamond pendant ($600) – i just can’t stop staring at it. and those gold and garnet earrings ($285) would be the perfect everyday accent (ooh, as would these chocolate diamonds…yum!). but i’ve been most in the market for a set of stacking rings, and hers are divine – though if santa’s asking, i’d build a custom set including that lovely teardrop ruby.
you can check out all of the beautiful baubles by this designer at her website. if nothing else, she’s proof positive that green is indeed one of the prettiest shades you can wear. don’t you agree?
