If baubled-out bibs and decadent drop earrings don’t make enough of a show-stopping sparkle for you jewelry hounds, then take note of the hottest summer statement trend: eyebrow bling. From rainbow brows to Benefit’s Bling Brow Kit featuring Swarovski crystals, eyebrows are where it’s at. Since eyebrows are considered “the holders of expression”, runway makeup artist James Kaliardos says they should be celebrated as such.

In an age where hyper feminine, conventional beauty is out and anything edgy is in, it’s no wonder why this grunge-glam trend is making waves. American fashion designer RodarteLady Gaga and even Kylie Jenner, just to name some of Hollywood‘s finest, have been spotted blinging out their brows.

Shocked or already over it? Well, sit tight jewelry jezebels, because the only RBF you’ll have to work on this summer, is your Resting Brow Face.

All over it? Or…just…over it?

Top 3 Travel Jewelry Essentials

The weather’s getting warmer, and you know what that means – it’s time to start planning for those warm-weather vacas! We don’t know about you, but for us, the hardest part of vacation (other than having to come home) is packing. We’ll admit that we’re slight over packers, but hey, we’re working on it, and over the years we’ve gathered a few great packing tips. Here are three travel jewelry essentials to pack for that upcoming vacation.

Jewelry Basics – Since you’ll most likely be traveling with a number of different outfit options, try to pack some basic jewelry pieces that will match with the majority of your outfits. For instance, bring along a pair of simple studs or a plain bangle. Depending on where you’re going, you might also want to consider packing less expensive pieces that you can easily replace if they’re lost or stolen. Take a look at our suggestions in the photo below, and shop for your own jewelry basics at Jewelry.com.

Statement Jewelry – Vacation is a special occasion, and statement jewelry is always perfect for a special occasion. Make sure to pack one or two fun pieces of statement jewelry, like some colorful earrings or that cocktail ring you haven’t taken out of the box. We have some great suggestions in the photo below that can be purchased at Jewelry.com.

Wedding Band & Engagement Ring Alternatives – If you’ve got a clunker of an engagement ring or an expensive wedding band, it might be a good idea to leave them at home, and wear an alternative ring while on vacation. Of course this depends on where you are traveling to, but it’s always smart to be extra cautious when traveling with your favorite jewelry pieces! Rock a gemstone or Swarovski ring, or a simpler band. Check out our suggestions in the photo below, and get your ring-alternatives at Jewelry.com.

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

3Looks_blog_20141110_a (1)

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

3Looks_blog_20141110_b

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

3Looks_blog_20141110_c (1)

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

January 26, 2010


Jewelry hounds, it’s been a whirlwind of jewelry looky-looing lately, what with Awards Season in full swing here in the States. But across the pond in Paris there’s a ‘jewelry as fashion art’ display going down that’s not to be missed.

The Spring 2010 Paris Couture shows are known for extravagant displays for only the rich and famous, but that doesn’t mean we can’t lower our jaws from afar, right?

Enter the triumvirate of taste: John Galliano for Dior, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel and Georgio Armani for Armani Prive. I’m already hyperventilating.






Lagerfeld has spoken, folks: ‘silver is the new gold’ with his first line that hasn’t included black, navy or nary a gold button. Silver cuffs and crystal bangles adorned the pastel pallete of classic Chanel looks, with evening wear that used diamond necklaces as part of each gown’s structure. Interesting.

Mr. Armani was inspired by the moon this season, and used mother-of-pearl brooches, earrings, and statement necklaces to light up his line.

And my beloved John Galliano has done it again. With the ‘eccentric millionairess’ as his muse, the Dior designer created a line that had the celebrity front row gasping in approval, according to Style.com.

HUGE statement pieces of crystal and gold in every shade made the elaborate evening wear come to life. And wouldn’t you know, the teardrop shape made a glittering appearance here too – (see my recent red carpet coverage for more ‘tears’).


How’s that lower jaw doing? I could gawk at Galiano for days. Not a huge fan of the Lagerfeld looks, and feel the Armani pieces are a bit too one-note for my taste. Kindof like the heart motif Donatella Versace used in Milan’s 2008 Fall show. What do you guys think?

Stay tuned for more Paris couture coverage this week, and I’m already saddling up for Sunday’s Grammy Awards red carpet. Come Tweet with me!

Jewelry Makes a Statement in Paris


It’s my favorite jewelry fashion time of year – the Paris Haute Couture Shows. And while this go-round has not delivered the Christian Lacroix craziness that lit up the runways last year, there are some serious statements worth coveting.


Dior did diamonds in flowers and bows, and pearls in both black and white and ‘bigger means better’ silhouettes.



Armani kept the statement necklace trend going strong with grey, metallic, chunky looks that must have weighed more than a newborn.



Valentino used headpieces as his accessory du jour, with stunning lace looks that oozed style and sophistication.


And gold kept glittering at the Givency and Christian Lacroix shows (a sad showing since this will be his last Couture collection due to financial issues).

And Fashion Week isn’t over yet! The stars are still arriving and the catwalks still cracking with fashion that you can’t even afford in your dreams. But what’s a jewelry fantasy without a dash of inaccessibility, right?

Stay tuned for more couture coverage, and check out a complete album of stunning jewelry looks fresh from Paris on Jewelry.com’s Facebook page.

Drool, dream and covet, jewelry hounds!
