We picked out a few great options to bring with you...   RP-RPN131081ox-Recovered (1)   This beauty is a piece by Rosanne Pugliese. Made from 22 Karat yellow gold and oxidized sterling silver, this modern link chain reads organic elegance. The cognac diamond detail also gives the necklace a refined feel. This piece is perfect for trips because it can be worn at its longest (about 34"), or wrapped around your neck twice. Give your white tee an edge with the doubled necklace during the day, and simply let it hang at its longest and add some heels to change up your look for the evening.

Meet Goldsmith and Gem-Guru Annie Fensterstock

Annie Fensterstock is a master goldsmith with a distinct style that is difficult to discover elsewhere. Using a style reminiscent of ancient artisans, her particular technique dates back centuries, while her style remains incredibly current and modern. Annie uses delicious and rich candy colored gemstones that sit beautifully amongst her radiant yellow gold and dark and moody oxidized metals. Her work ranges from gorgeous eye-catching ornamented pendants, to simple hammered wedding bands and diamond encrusted engagement rings. Annie has been quoted to say that, through her work, she seeks “to re-imagine and reinterpret the past,” and fuse the ancient world with the vitality of the modern world--and we just love that that. Annie’s bold aesthetic is unlike anything else, her stones deliciously unusual, and her pieces unique and show-stopping. [caption id="attachment_165" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]Oxidized and Hammered Sterling Silver Cuff with Diamond and Gold Detail and Boulder Opal Oxidized and Hammered Sterling Silver Cuff with Diamond and Gold Detail and Boulder Opal[/caption] This weekend, we will be hosting Annie in all her glory at her trunk show on Friday and Saturday in Greenwich and in Larchmont!

We are OBSESSED with this “halo reprise” diamond engagement ring: [caption id="attachment_166" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]Annie Fensterstock Halo Reprise Diamond Engagement Ring Annie Fensterstock Halo Reprise Diamond Engagement Ring[/caption]   Hope to see you at the Trunk!   Tomorrow, Friday, November 8th 112 Mason Street Greenwich, CT 06830 10 AM-5:30 PM   Saturday, November 9th 134 Larchmont Avenue Larchmont, NY 10538 10 AM-5:30 PM

Designer Spotlight: Brooke Gregson

Guys--we are SO excited about our newest, beyond fabulous designer: straight from London (drum roll please)...BROOKE GREGSON!

5245193195_e3b6837ec2

Born and bred in Los Angeles and currently working out of her Notting Hill studio, Brooke Gregson has been making organic and refreshingly modern jewelry since 2004. Her fascination with Astronomy is reflected in her precious, luminescent gemstones surrounded by pave diamond halos. Her recently introduced “Silk Woven” bracelets and necklaces—fine metal chain enveloped in hand woven silk combined with beautiful semi-precious stones and diamonds—can be worn together or on their own, and are as unique as they are striking. Z_SilkWDiaLabradorite-Bracelet Brooke’s jewelry is fresh and an absolute delight to wear—true statement pieces that you will never want to take off. [caption id="attachment_72" align="aligncenter" width="300"]1240647_10151697783408063_279010134_n From left to right: boulder opal, labradorite, aquamarine slice, emerald, blue tourmaline with pave diamond halo, 14 karat rose gold pave diamond bar, labradorite with pave diamond halo.[/caption] Believe it or not, Brooke is carried very exclusively--in fact, the only website allowed to sell her pieces is Net-A-Porter, and we are currently the ONLY STORE in the tri-state area to carry her stuff--so you know what that means--you have to visit us. Not only that, you really want to see all her pieces together to really get the full effect. Her gorgeous pieces have been pictured on the likes of my new best friends Jennifer Lawrence and Helena Christensen, among others, and have graced the glossy pages of Vogue and Elle Magazine.
