I love H.Stern jewelry. I have a pair of small Rock Season earrings. They are very beautiful and light weight! Under 4 grams each. I just wish I could have them in 18k yellow gold with white diamond pave. They are so beautiful, I purchased as they are made, in Noble Gold with champagne diamond pave.

On my wish list are earrings from The Genesis Collection. I want the small 3 star cluster studs. These earrings also come in Noble Gold. Noble Gold is H. Stern’s own alloy. It is very beautiful, between yellow and white gold. That way you can mix with either metal.

I know some people feel that you only pay for the name when you purchase designer jewelry. What people don’t realize is that you pay for exquisite workmanship, great attention to detail and the designer’s own gold alloy.

I strongly suggest you examine and/ or buy a piece of jewelry from H.Stern and you will find that you purchased more than the name!

Judy Geib Earrings

I Love Judy Geib! She is a true artist. Her jewelry is whimsical, fantastic! I purchased this pair of earrings at Barney’s. Judy Geib jewelry is also sold at Twistonline. These earrings are similar to mine. My earrings are sterling silver and weigh under 5 grams. I had to make a weight exception for this pair.

I would love this pair and this necklace. Judy also has a website. Check it out!
You will be amazed!

Hours of Enjoyment via Style Books

I Really enjoy style and reading ! A combination I have found in style books. These books are almost like shopping. You become inspired to be your very best just by looking at and reading them.

One of my all-time favorites is by Angela Buttolph. It’s called Kate Moss: Style. It features many photos of Kate Moss and her outfits as she attends events and goes on along her daily life. You will see why Kate Moss is such a style icon.

John Hardy Jewelry

L-My own two headed tiger
ring. R- My own green amethyst ring. The earrings
are milky quartz and sterling silver. All by John Hardy.

I very seldom buy sterling silver jewelry. Especially rings. The times that I do, it’s because the pieces are outstanding! John Hardy makes outstanding jewelry. The attention to detail is insane.
Two of my favorite rings are by John Hardy. The first is my double headed tiger ring. It’s part of the Legends Macan Collection. It has been reissued since. The new version has gemstone eyes. I wish I could afford it in 18k! These rings rival the Cartier panther rings. John Hardy 18k gold is very affordable compared to other jewelers. The second ring, I was fortunate to find at Last Call during a John Hardy Trunk Show. It has a wide band and a green amethyst. I wear it on my middle finger as it is too big for my ring finger.
I am very Happy with my purchases and recommend John Hardy Jewelry .

I Hope everyone had a Happy and Blessed New year! Thank you so much for visiting my site!
I REALLY appreciate it! I Hope to post again after 1/09/2017! I have been busy working and taking care of my Family responsibilities. Please come back! See y’all on 1/09/2017. I Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Thanks again!

Gurhan

I feel that my money is best spent on earrings.   However this necklace by Gurhan just screamed my name.   I get many compliments EVERYTIME I wear it.   It is super sparkly.

My only necklace! This black diamond and 24k 18 in. necklace by Gurhan just SCREAMED my name. also pictured Irene Neuwirth chrysoprase earrings and earrings by Roberto Marroni.

I had the pleasure of meeting Gurhan at Neiman Marcus in Palo Alto, Ca years ago.   He doesn’t remember, I’ll never forget!   I’m loosely quoting an old Yngwie Malmsteen song there  .     Gurhan attends many trunk shows yearly to meet and get feedback from his clientele.   I love a jeweler who is willing to work with you .   You can choose your metal and dimensions.   Gurhan will also repurpose your old jewelry into an original Gurhan design !   That is huge as many jewelers will not work with you. I can’t wait to collaborate with him on a pair of earrings!   Check out Gurhan’s gorgeous collections  @ Gurhan. The Gurhan website is very informative, has beautiful photos and contains a link to Gurhan’s blog.

Pictured here are Gurhan earrings on my wish list.

My dream earrings from the Gurhan Delicate Collection. I'm in LOVE with this pair. They remind me of The Scream By Edvard Munch.

One for you, one for me!

What to buy a man in your life?   How about a money clip?   Men always seem to carry cash.   I recently purchased two money clips.   The first is a sterling silver Out Of Retirement Dollar Sign Money Clip from Tiffany’s.   The second one, a sterling silver Prada paper clip.  The Prada money clip I purchased at Barney’s.  I am madly in love with both!   If I were a man, I would want one.   I purchased them for myself by the way.

 

Color

Don’t be afraid of color!  If your favorite color is blue, buy earrings with blue gemstones.   Jewelry does not have to be neutral.  Buy color.   I wear my colored gemstone earrings with whatever color of clothing I have on.

I will wear yellow with amethyst earrings.  Believe me, you can make color work.   If your clothes are neutral, your gemstone earrings, necklace, rings can provide the pop of color along with your lipstick.

The Beach

Tiffany Elsa Peretti starfish earrings and Steven Douglas seahorse earrings.

I Love the beach and the sea! Sadly, I never get to go. I still manage to enjoy it in my thoughts, through books and photos and my earrings!

I have starfish earrings by Tiffany and two pairs of seahorse earrings. The seahorse earrings are by Steven Douglas. The large seahorse is sterling silver and 14k gold. The smaller seahorse is 14k yellow gold and white diamonds. Each pair is under 4 grams so I can wear them all day long.

I wear these earrings in the Summer and the Winter. In the Winter, the earrings add some sunshine to my cold day.
