Gem Gossip Visits Williams Galleries in Nashville, TN

I like to brag about living in Nashville as much as I can--especially to my counterparts who live in NYC and LA, who think their high cost of living, traffic jammed cities are the best places to live. Lucky for me, I have one more thing to boast about besides the wonderful people who call TN home and the rolling hills of the countryside, and that is Williams Galleries in Green Hills.  Predominately an art gallery featuring 19th & 20th Century American paintings and antique American folk art, lifelong collecting and researching has spawned this space. Ideally tucked away, by appointment-only, surrounded by upscale shops, great restaurants, and an ever-growing locale--Williams Galleries is Nashville's best kept secret for fine antique and estate jewelry.

Randi Williams, who owns the gallery along with her husband, is keeper of the jewels, where she gladly wears pieces from her inventory in the coolest way possible.  A Bvlgari suite from the 1960s? She has worn those chic pieces with black leather pants and a V-neck.  A bold plume-like French dress clip by Suzanne Belperron?  She has tucked it seamlessly against a belt for a head-turning look.  Her attitude toward these high-end pieces of jewelry is dynamic and has others catching on by investing in pieces by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Seaman Schepps, Rene Boivin, amongst others. Jewelry of this stature should not lead one to feel intimidated by it--Randi has been teaching this to her clients since she started.

I got to try on numerous pieces--so many rare and fine jewels, all drool-worthy and highly covetable. A backdrop of art went hand-in-hand with its appeal, and one soon began to blur the lines between the art hanging on the walls and the art hanging from our ears, necks, wrists and coiling around our fingers. Jewelry, after all, is art--from the gemstones, to the gold and everything in between.  There's a reason why one might not realize this when you walk into any other jewelry store. But when you ring the doorbell and enter Williams Galleries, and begin to feast your eyes on the remarkable pieces of jewelry, you soon learn these are wearable masterpieces by highly skilled artists called jewelers. 

Make sure to stop by Williams Galleries if you are ever in the Nashville area.  Don't forget it is by appointment only.  If you have any questions, feel free to email Randi at 

Special thanks to Clark Heldman for facilitating the meetup and being a great model!

The Opulent Box: A Jewelry Subscription You Won't Want to Throw Out!

opulent step1 step2 step3 opulentjewelers kieselstein-cord-bloodstone-intaglio-ring-18k-yellow-gold1-600x800 hermes-stirrup-18k-yellow-gold-bracelet-1-600x800 hermes-collier-de-chien-ring-18k-yellow-gold-600x800 hermes-choker-necklace-yellow-gold-1-600x800

It doesn't matter what industry you're in, in order to be one-step ahead of the game, one must be constantly thinking outside the box.  Unless this box is an Opulent Box, then you've found yourself amidst a genius idea-- a concept recently created by Opulent Jewelers, a jewelry company that is based out of Pennsylvania. The concept isn't new--have you heard of Birch Box or Bark Box?! Surely you have, a subscription based service which mails subscribers a monthly box of 4-5 samples based on preferences. Many companies have formed from the surge of interest, anything from makeup, to food, wine, and my favorite--Japanese toys and trinkets. Could this concept work for jewelry?!  Obviously, but what if you want to step it up a notch...a BIG notch.  I'm talking when you receive an Opulent Box in the mail, your box will be valued at $25,000!  Yes, it is the world's first-ever subscription box for authentic, luxury and designer jewelry!  

Opulent Jewelers says that each box is, "custom curated by a personal concierge to suit your unique tastes and preferences, selections in this incredible box will include rare and exquisite pieces chosen from legendary brands such as Chanel, Cartier, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton, and others! On top of the amazing jewelry, we’ll also throw in some exclusive goodies just for you."  They've set up a survey which takes just a few minutes to answer a few questions, all of which determine the best "surprise" jewels for your Opulent Box. Questions like, "When do you normally wear jewelry?" or "Which of these speak to your style?" ..with photos of five different options. With an entire year's subscription costing $100,000 this is as good as it gets for an extravagant client needing a gift for their significant other without having to do much of anything but pay!  There's usually four occasions per year that need gifts like this--anniversary, birthday, Christmas and the ole yearly "just because" and the Opulent Box will have you covered for 365 days!  

So what do you think?!  Do you like this idea? Let us know in the comments below!

The four items featured above are favorites from Opulent Jewelers, who also have a private suite in Bucks County, Pennsylvania!  You can click on the image to bring you more details and price.

Fall/Winter Favorites from Levinson Jewelers, Ft. Lauderdale, FL


I don't know about you, but as soon as the weather starts to get cold and summer turns into fall...and then fall turns into winter, I like to head south!  You can call me a snow bird, but I like to call it smart! ;) Florida boasts two of my favorite things--warm weather and Levinson Jewelers!  The store has become an iconic landmark, located on the famed Las Olas Boulevard in Ft. Lauderdale. For 30 years, the store has served customers from all parts of the globe, with their reach continually growing.  If you're escaping the cold and find yourself in the Ft. Lauderdale area, make sure to stop by and check out their fine selection of jewelry. They carry some of the most exquisite, prestigious brands--like Ivanka Trump, Gucci, Bulgari, Mattioli, Penny Preville, and many more. The incredibly popular Buddha Mama & Lana Jewelry are also a part of their repertoire.  

I took some time out to find my favorite Fall/Winter picks from Levinson Jewelers--all of which can be found in their online boutique!  I gravitated toward yellow gold pieces with splashes of black...bold looks, with subtle detailing.  I'm crazy over the sleek yellow gold earrings that I chose--very geometric and modern.  Black diamonds also won me over, especially on that Gucci ring.  The tassel is so fun and would make a great statement piece--I can't imagine someone NOT stopping and asking about it when worn.  Pieces with open spaces and asymmetrical design will look great with cozy sweaters and boots for this season!

1. Black diamond tassel bracelet by Ivanka Trump, Price: $18,000 

2. Rock quartz three-stone ring with diamonds by Ivanka Trump, Price: $3,400
