Are you one of the lucky ones going on spring break? Or day dreaming about your Memorial Day weekend plans? If so, don't forget to pack your jewelry! We picked out a few great options to bring with you... 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.

The lovely Melissa Joy Manning celebrated the opening of her new 4500 square foot flagship store at 12 Wooster Street last week. The sustainable jewelry designer achieved her dream green space with the help of a Kickstarter collection which ultimately helped fund this amazing multi-functional space. "I just really wanted to create a vision for the brand that was tangible so people could understand where we're coming from,” said Manning. The space will carry other sustainable designers and friends of Manning such as Pamela Love, Blair Brown, Judy Geib, and Mark Davis. We are huge fans of the brand (we carry it at our Larchmont location), and absolutely love Manning’s green and sustainable vision. To Manning, knowing the source and origins of all her raw materials is incredibly important—and she is inspired by the beauty and shape of her organic, raw materials, resulting in an earthy and edgy look. Manning has said that "[her] jewelry is not an accessory, but an expression”—she believes that all jewelry can evoke emotion and can mean something different to each individual that wears her pieces.
