Collection Obsession: Unity by ERA Jewelry



I love a wide range of jewelry—much of which is woefully out of my budget—so I spend a lot of time coveting all sorts of creations. But every once in a while, a line of jewelry comes along that just feels so “me,” that I spend more time adding to my personal wish list than I probably should, quietly scheming how to leave husband-hints all over our home for that next special occasion.

ERA Jewelry is that and more.

I kept telling myself I had to narrow it down, to curb the amount of pictures included in this article, but it just could not be done. With their tantalizing hues and luscious, freewheeling angles, each piece is a star in its own right. These fantastically wearable, everyday styles are so layerable, they just beg to be collected. But the jewelry is also so different from many of the others that make up the layering/stacking/grouping category. They make standing out in a crowd somehow appear effortless and unfussy while elevating your earring, bracelet, necklace (I’m partial to those), and ring (not pictured) selection.

The Unity collection “highlights the importance of individual and unique characteristics that, when combined, creates beauty,” according to the brand’s website. And it does that well: An array of angular-cut gemstones join to create wonderfully jagged styles, lending an edge to the pretty, pastel colors and rich, warm gold (many of the pieces are also available in rose gold).

An ode to her relationships with her sisters, Los Angeles–born designer Rochelle Gordon created ERA Jewelry, its moniker a combination of the sister’s first initials: Erin, Rochelle, and Alison. Each piece is inspired by the women’s unique characteristics: elegance, romanticism, and masculinity.
