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...

Last Monday, on a brilliantly sunny fall day, the Council of Fashion Designers of America held a jewelry showcase at the Samsung 837 space in Manhattan. More often than not, I miss these kinds of events because I’m marooned in Los Angeles. Not this time! I’d arrived in the city over the...

I don’t often get excited about sporting events, but on Saturday afternoon, my boyfriend, Jim, and I had the opportunity to attend one of the most prestigious events in the equestrian world—and I’m still grinning about it. The Swiss watch brand Longines invited us to the 33rd running of the...

In a perfect world, everyone would, at some point in his or her life, experience Tokyo. I had my chance last week and was blown away by the city’s killer style, inventive cuisine, and unparalleled service. It was well worth the 12-hour haul from Los Angeles to join the Swiss watch brand Breguet...
