Shine on


Yesterday’s post on the ring with a hidden diamond put me in mind of all the jewelry I keep seeing with just enough of the sparkly stuff to put a spring in your step— but not so much sparkly stuff that you have to shell out anywhere near four figures to pay for it. Like this rose gold ring with a diamond bar, for instance, which brings all sorts of quiet elegance to the party.

As talismans go, you can’t beat a horseshoe— for good luck and straight-up cuteness.

Itsy fishies with shiny, bright eyes.


Satomi Kawakita is one of my new favorite jewelry designers: her pieces are both delicate and un-girly, which is a combination you do not find everyday. My stack of rings suddenly feels incomplete without this hexagon.

    I’m on the hunt for a ring like the one from Steven Alan, but with a vertical bar. Any leads?

    All pretty, and low key. I may be tempted to get one… I do always go by the word of Nora Ephron – who needs a ring you can’t wear on the subway?

    I love the spider earrings…and am getting a bonus check from a side consulting project I’ve been doing, so think I will get these to celebrate!
