Shattered Dreams? How about Dreams Fulfilled?

shattered dreamsBijules NYC Jewelry is most definitely one of a kind. A very well known and incredibly respected line of both jewelry and accessories, Bijules NYC Jewelry has received renown even through the international presses. The brand is incredibly unique, extremely talented in created pieces designed to celebrate not just fashion and style, but individuality as well.

And it most definitely does so. For example, just take a look at the Bijules 14K Vermeil “Shattered Dreams” Necklace. It is classified as a triptych medallion, because the pendant is hung on three individual gold chains and it actually weaves a story about the process of aging.  Specifically, it tells us that things can get more complicated as we get older, that they can begin to shatter and fall apart — but if we are responsible and if we have a good head on our shoulders, then we can put the pieces back together again and keep our lives in tact.

Talk about a strong message!

Dori Csengeri Brings Aphrodite to Life

aphroditeI have just fallen in love, friends and jewelry lovers, with Dori Csengeri Designer Jewelry in general and a specific piece in general. But first, I definitely think we need to talk a little bit about Dori Csengeri, who finds inspiration in both art fashion. Her jewelry is completely sewn by hand with tried and true techniques. We are talking serious needlework here, among other techniques, which leads to some of the most unique, one of a kind jewelry you will ever hope to find.

They are the true definition of haute couture: handmade and completely original, an array of beautiful stones, crystal beads with a bohemian flair, cabochons, metal, shells, wood, and leather.

Take, for instance, this gorgeous handcrafted Aphrodite Necklace.  With its beautiful color palette and sensual designs, it definitely channels the Greek goddess of Love.

Jamie Wolf’s Necklaces Will Leave You Howling at the Moon

necklaceJamie Wolf used to dance with the New York City Ballet, something you can tell in the grace and elegance of her jewelry designs. She only began doing it full time about five years ago, but a ten year history dancing ballet certainly made a huge impact on her design aesthetic.

The 18K White Gold Rose of France Flower Necklace showcases that elegance beautifully. It has a clover chain made of diamonds and 18k white gold, and it is crowned with a Rose of France stone in the center — one that is 26.65 carats. There are eight clovers that have diamond centers surround the gorgeous lavender stone.

I love absolutely everything about this necklace, which goes for just over thirty five hundred dollars.  Hey, you guys, Christmas is coming up … not that I’m hinting or anything.

Arman’s Hand of God Pendant: It Certainly Looks Good!

Arman’s Hand of God Pendant

So honestly, I have been seeing this necklace everywhere as of late and I finally had do to my research on it and find out exactly what it is.  Well folks, this little necklace is actually the Arman’s Hand of God Pendant and for those of you that do not know, Arman jewelry is actually a total blend of gothic and vintage.

Personally, that is totally my style.  I am absolutely gothic (well, I was back in the day) and I love old and vintage items, so this was certainly the perfect necklace for me!  It is a mixture of yellow gold along with some silver and even some rose-cut diamonds. 

For just over one thousand dollars, this little necklace is certainly making waves all over the place and it is definitely one of my hot picks of the week!

Open Wide and Say “Ohm!”


Yet again we have a jewelry designer who incorporates real meaning into her gorgeous pieces.  This is a necklace designed by Jennifer Meyer.  Rendered in gorgeous white gold (but available in yellow gold as well), the ‘Ohm’ design is rendered in beautiful diamond pave on — in this version — a disc of white gold matte.

The white gold itself is a whopping eighteen karats; the white gold chain is sixteen inches.

According to the designer herself and sellers as well, simply wearing this beautiful necklace with its unquestionably meaningful pendant will bring you peace and keep you calm.  Rather than repeating the well known meditation mantra throughout the day, it will be sending calming waves to you the entire time you are wearing it.

In addition to being soothing, this piece is simply down right gorgeous — and that combination is terribly hard to find.  A piece like this is a true innovation.  You definitely do not see necklaces like this every day.  It costs about fifteen hundred dollars, depending on where you buy it, but I think a lot of you will agree that the readily apparent and exquisite craftsmanship makes this necklace well worth the price.
