Brass Bird Rings with Emerald and Garnet Eyes

New pieces in from Suzannah Wainhouse this week, online and in the store. Her signature brass shapes are taking new forms, like in these sweet little bird rings with jeweled eyes or the tourmaline nugget necklaces. One of my favorite parts of jewelry, and fashion, is following designers to see how their artistry and thinking changes season after season. There is also that exciting intersection to look forward to where their thinking and your thinking sync perfectly at the right time and you find the perfect piece of theirs to own. It’s really interesting to watch creative people push and expand their style, and Suzannah is always pushing for the better. Watch out for your perfect piece!

Vintage Gem Rings

Vintage Gem Ring

For some reason, every time I go out on a vintage jewelry buying excursion I come home and open up my goodies to realize that I, once again, bought mostly rings! I tell myself every time to look for earrings and necklaces and a smattering of bracelets, but my eye always takes me to the ring. I love big center stones, crazy carved bands, professions of love, and (as you already know about me) just plain weird stuff. Check out some of the new ones we just put out in the case…

Late 1800's Double Finger Ring

Sometimes I’ll wake up to a night’s worth of emails from Lori, with her amazing finds from the internet; like this antique ring from Berganza Jewelry. Made in the late 1800’s, the emerald in the center is engraved with “Salam Allah” (Peace to Allah), while the two cultured pearls sit amidst some incredible gold scrollwork. Check out some of our more contemporary offerings on this classic design, which, apparently, never goes out of style.
