Brighten up your Labor Day whites with the ultra-modern edge of Guy Laroche jewelry. The ’60s Parisian couturier-turned-jewelry designer was celebrated for his sleek and sensual aesthetic. Structured lines and geometric shapes transform Laroche’s sparkling creations into stylish jewel-box staples.

Looking for the perfect statement accent to go with your LWD (Little White Dress)? Then try the Link Bracelet with Cubic Zirconia (above) or the Circle Drop Earrings with Cubic Zirconia. If you’re a white shorts and breezy top kinda gal, then the Bangle Bracelet with Cubic Zirconia or Circle Pendant with Cubic Zirconia(below) might be right up your alley. Either way, Guy Laroche jewelry gives your Labor Day look a little effortless glamor!

Perk Up Your Fall/Winter Woe-drobe

Winter is well on its way, and if those cozy scarf, boot and sweater combos you’ve been rocking since September feel a little basic, well then we’ve got some jewelry-infused styling options for you! Perk up your work-to-weekend wardrobe with our short, sweet and chic style guide of jewelry classics guaranteed to update your everyday look.

1. Thoroughly Modernista

If monochromes and neutrals are your fail-safe de rigueur, then try this winning combination (see above). Mix up your black-and-white basics with a matching necklace to add an edge of graphic intrigue – but without looking like a mangled Picasso. To soften up the severity of this graphic tableau, add a richly colored ring or bracelet and try pairing this with a matching bag or set of heels. In these cold weather months, sleek elegantly-draped vests or coats add polish to your look and make this as an evening appropriate option for any dressy afterwork occasions. Simply mad about the drops and necklace? Look no further than Zoccai 925. Handcrafted and streamlined in design, this Italian jewelry aficionado is renowned for their bold gemstones and flawless craftsmanship packed with a flirty/feminine intrigue.

2. Jewel-Toned Jezebel

Got color? Donning yourself in dark tones can get depressing which is why jewel tones, like a deep dark teal or lush bordeaux, are an easy way to amp up your ensembles. Splash a bit of mocha into this mix with a boot or bag for a perfectly balanced finish. But don’t leave your house without some sparklers or a bangle for the complete look. Pastel and soft neutral-toned jewelry break up this saturated color scheme and are a sleek way to draw attention to your neckline. Love the bangles and drops? So do we! Cristina Sabatini is the name to take note of in this jewel-toned mix, known for her globe-trotting glamour and boldly colored aesthetic.

3. Vintage Diva

Channel a bit of Old Hollywood glamor with this ultra sophisticated silhouette. Start off with a crisp pair of dark denim jeans. A skinny or body-skimming pair is great if you choose to wear a bulky fur or faux fur jacket or vest. Next, dressy flats keep your look casual while maintaining polish. A silky soft white, neutral or pastel top or even a sleek tee keep your look modern. A brooch and a pair of earrings or a cocktail ring are just as imperative as is the fur. Crystalline gems with pearls in white gold or sterling silver, like the set above, are a faultlessly elegant option to perfecting your inner Audrey. For vintage inspired that is always on point, we love Van Kempen (featured above) for its timeless craftsmanship and decorous design.

The Jewelry Insider

July 26, 2013


Designer jewelry collections are a dime-a-dozen these days. From Real Housewives to Bachelorettes and beyond, it seems every C-list reality star with 15 minutes of fame thinks they have the fashion smarts to design bling real women want to wear.

It ain’t that easy, folks.

So when I see a designer jewelry collection with REAL fashion street cred behind it? It’s like finding a needle in the proverbial fashion haystack – and I have to share it with my fellow jewelry hounds.


Enter the “ELLE Time & Jewelry Collection” debuting on Jewelry.com this week!



Yes, THE ELLE  – as in the iconic Paris-based, fashion magazine that started during WWII and evolved into the world’s #1 fashion publication. Not only was ELLE responsible for encouraging the ‘pants revolution’ back in the 40s, freeing women from the confines of stockings and skirts (huzzah!), they were the first publication to be founded and run entirely by – women.  Love it!

I love their fashion credo even more:


 “We believe clothing without accessories is like a party with no cake” (or champagne, as the case may be…)

Long story short? If you have the ELLE fashion juggernaut behind a jewelry collection? You know you’re going to have well-designed, versatile, stylish pieces at price points every woman will find worthy of their hard-earned cash.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the new boutique:

ELLE Butterfly Pendant in Sterling Silver. Price: $150
ELLE Retro Ring in Sterling Silver. Price: $170

Or you can check out the whole collection here. And just between us? Take this coupon code with you to get an extra 20% Off through Sunday, July 28th with code: ELLE at checkout (shhhh…).

ELLE Rose Quartz and Mother-of-Pearl Earrings in Sterling Silver. Price: $120

And, as always, weigh in with your thoughts about the line here. I love to hear the jewelry hounds bark!

Jewelry Joins the Parisian ‘Haute’ World


Jewelry used to be the under-appreciated step-sister of the Parisian Haute Couture world – that apex of fashion events that brings the best and the brightest to the shores of the Seine twice a year.

To even be allowed to use the term “haute couture,” one has to follow a Miss Manners’ rulebook full of do’s and don’ts – with very few designers making the cut (only seven houses are showing this week, for example).

But this year, jewelry brands are finally allowed to show alongside the frocks – a first for the buttoned-up world of high fashion (see Nick Foulkes’ informative article in Newsweek for an in-depth look at the topic).

Van Cleef & Arpels, Chanel and Dior are among the select few to join the ‘haute’ crowd. And while the haute joaillerie can be seen by appointment only, it doesn’t stop the looky-loo in me from wondering what on earth could be in the coffers for those who can afford the best the jewelry world has to offer.

Here is a link to a previous ‘haute’ offering from Dior that’s at the top of my covet list and a few shots of pieces from the Paris jewelry shows earlier this year.

Want more? Stay tuned for a recap of my favorite Paris Couture runway jewelry looks tomorrow – including some crazy cuffs from Chanel and fairy-tale sized necklaces from Jean Paul Gaultier.
