No, I'm not talking Black Friday. But if you are participating in the year's nuttiest shopping day, please be safe (and get lots of great deals!). But the moniker of today's unofficial beginning to the holiday shopping season just reminded me of how classic black gemstone or black metal jewelry is...

Baby, it's cold outside. Well, it is for some parts of the world. Here in Washington, D.C., it's a balmy 60 degrees (one day after we had hypothermia warnings. 'Sup, Mother Nature?). So what does one wear when she is positively freezing (besides lots of layers)? Fire opal, of course! The orangy-red...

Oh, my goodness! Would you just look at this ring? I fell in love with it the second I caught a glimpse. And then I studied it for a while more. And then I fell even deeper in love with it. I so enjoy writing imaginative descriptions about jewelry, giving my best attempt to bring pieces to life...

Ice may not be the most wonderful thing that comes to mind when you think of winter. It comes with bad weather, the danger of wiping out, and generally cold temperatures. But there is beauty in ice, too (hello, anyone seen Frozen?). It's in the icicles we admire (and definitely don't stand below)....

There's nothing quite like a one-of-a-kind creation. Something that belongs only to you, replicated by some, maybe, but never quite the same. Original thoughts from the mind of a genius, molded, crafted, and decorated with the most shiny, sparkly gemstones. I, for one, dream of owning...

If citrine is the seasonally appropriate option for November, topaz is the burst of color needed to make it through the winter. It comes in a wide range of hues (imperial topaz is particularly gorgeous), but most people hear topaz and automatically conjure sights of blue. And that's okay—it's a...

I love a great diamond pendant. But a double diamond pendant—now that's even better. From Rahaminov Diamonds for Forevermark, this timeless beauty is the holiday gift that keeps on giving. With clean lines and sparkling Forevermark diamonds, there's no way it will ever find itself on a fashion-don'...

The phrase "go big or go home" really resonates with me. Take, for example, statement necklaces. I'm not big on the bib necklaces that we tend to see a lot of in retail, particularly at the affordable fashion spots such as BaubleBar. My style lends itself much more to petite pendants, thin chains,...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Citrine is underutilized and underappreciated. But as (one of) November's birthstones, it's citrine's month to shine. Fortunately for its golden yellow-orange shade, autumn is the perfect time to be in the spotlight. I knew I'd find just what I was...

Major fangirl moment: Blackbird and the Snow is awesome. The 2014 JCK Rising Star outfitted the ears of the gorgeous Carey Mulligan on the May 2015 issue of Vogue (Vogue!), and the designer behind the name, Marie-Juliette Bird, is not only a talented creator, she's a recording artist. So, literally...
