So bold. So beautiful. So juicy. Jane Taylor‘s eye-popping, one-of-a-kind earrings know how to get your attention. The oval grape garnets at center appear so refreshingly rich, like a cold drink of, well, grape something (wine?!). They’re the life of the party, with bursting edges of square sapphires, in colors ranging from lilac to light pink, accenting the bold center hue just so. I’d expect nothing less from the Queen of Color; aren’t we always taken aback (in a good way) by Jane Taylor’s bright creations? But this pair in particular, this Jewel of the Month, should really be called the Jewel of all Time, since the earrings would practically match anything and everything, any time of year. But oh, what a hit they’d be at the holiday party, right? Here’s the thing, though. They’re just out of my price range (so close), so if anyone wants to perform a little holiday miracle (or even go halfsies?) you’d really be making my year. Hello? Anyone?
