I am well aware this is my fourth blog post about Tucson in nearly as many weeks. But if you attended this year’s gem shows, you’ll understand why. As I wrote last week, there was some interesting news to come out of Tucson. And it wasn’t strictly about loose gems. The JCK Tucson show featured more...

In mid-January, I interviewed designer David Yurman—a gem lover of the highest order—at his headquarters in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. Fairly quickly, the conversation turned to the Tucson gem shows. Yurman is a big deal at the annual trade gathering; when he passes through town, whispers...

At press time. You’ve probably seen this phrase in the magazine before. That’s the way we cover our bases just in case something dramatic happens after we upload the issue to the printer. And at no time does it feel more appropriate than now. In the six weeks between my writing this and your...

As you read this, I’ll be communing with nature in Sedona, Ariz., where I’m taking a two-day break before heading to Tucson for the annual gem shows. While I’ll spend most of my time at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, home to the JCK Tucson show, I’m also planning to hit up the...

A week ago, I hit the ground running in Geneva—literally. In town for the 27th annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), I arrived around 11 a.m. last Monday on a red-eye flight from Newark International Airport (with a layover in Dublin), sprinted to my hotel, freshened up, and...

Brrrrrr. I just arrived in frigid New York City for a week of jewelry events culminating at this weekend’s GEM Awards and 24 Karat gala dinners. My mind, however, is somewhere else. I’m fixated on Tucson, where I’ll be on Feb. 1 for the opening of the third annual JCK Tucson show. The...

So long, 2016! And with it, I’d like to say a personal sayonara to stacking rings and earring jackets. The former are too ubiquitous for my taste, while the latter never sat quite right with me (literally—the pairs I owned twisted around my lobes, refusing to stay still). Instead, keep the...

I’ve long promised my boyfriend, Jim, that when he’s old enough and I’m rich enough, I’m going to buy him a watch from IWC Schaffhausen. The Swiss brand makes elegant, high-quality timepieces with a sporty, clean aesthetic. Manly but not ostentatious, and high-end yet accessible, they look just as...

In March 2013, I had a funny encounter at Baselworld that has since brought me a small degree of fame. You can read the whole story here (and here), so I’ll give you the abridged version: When I arrived for my morning press appointment at the Shinola booth that year—it was the Detroit-based...
