If you’re reading this, it means that you’re awake (at least, awake enough) to function on this post–daylight savings Monday, one day after we “spring forward” (read we all lost an hour of precious sleep). It’s amazing how just one hour, a mere 60 minutes, can have such an impact in its absence. And yet, it’s a change we seem to feel for weeks.

So many rutiles in this beauty. This gemstone emits such power over people when they see it. A lot of attraction going on! I design often around the gemstone. In this design, I complemented the hard lines with little flowers as prongs to balance out the aesthetics. Each stone us unique. #statementjewelry #nature #alisonnagasue #designedwithlove #artisannecklace #ooak #madeinny #rutilatedquartz #gemstone #brazil #sustainablysourced #18kgold #14kgold #wearjewelry #womensjewelry #madebyawonanforawoman

There’s a shiny silver lining to this version of daylight savings, despite the time it seemingly takes to catch up with it: It means spring is really truly almost here. Sunset is later, and slowly but surely we’ll end up wearing a few less layers (except for jewelry—that, we pile on even thicker). On some trees there are already a scattering of blooms, and in the stores, Easter displays signal the arrival of a new season.

The Instagram community seems to be feeling the excitement for spring, and I was rich in sunny, feel-good pictures that brightened up my feed this week. When much of the news is bad, we can’t underestimate how powerful even the simplest display of beauty can be—and jewelry has plenty of that to offer (though much of the jewelry pictured can be called anything but simple).

The bezel has been one of the most popular settings from our last post ✨ it truly is the most versatile. Amazing for active lifestyles. The stone is protected from every angle. While this could affect the brilliance of the stone impacting the amount of light reflected but a well made ring would not have this issue. However a prong mounting will almost always have more sparkle but that’s not to say that the bezel wouldn’t have plenty of radiance ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Item 4103 Tap to Shop

Jewelry-show season is also gearing up so—whether the events go as scheduled or not—this feels like the season of new creations. Jewelers are gearing up to show off their latest, some of it on social media. Anticipating new jewelry designs on Instagram is as thrilling—more, even—than the eventual arrival of spring (and often, the two coincide).
