Gem Gossip needs your input!!


As my birthday is quickly approaching, I am continually torn between a circle or a square!! More on that in a minute--but first, I need your input.  The above rings are designed by Zoë Chicco and after much debate on choosing what I want for my birthday, I have decided upon one of these rings.  Shown are three of the spike rings stacked--you can choose either the round version or the square version. I know I like the black onyx, but can't decide upon which shape.

Which do you prefer the square or the circle?  [Your input is greatly appreciated!]

My Jewel Box: A Couple Family Heirlooms


My sister ALisha and I had a fun time going through our parents' jewelry boxes. My mom's jewelry was more traditional and included many pieces from the 1980s. Since then, she has not really made any jewelry purchases. A favorite piece of hers is an Opal Triplet pendant that she had custom made after purchasing the stone. My dad's jewelry consists of lots of 18k yellow gold chains from Italy given to him from his parents, as well as lots of watches! A favorite piece of his is a Girard-Perregaux watch given to him by his father.


Pictured are two pieces from my parents' jewelry collection: my mom's engagement ring, which is a three-stone diamond ring done in a 14k yellow gold bypass style. The ring is crowned on top an owl carved out of soapstone. One of my dad's watches is pictured on an antique blue plate, featuring Andrew Jackson. The plate was found at an old antique shop by my sister--Jackson owned a large plantation and estate near where we live.

Backwards Necklace like Criss Cross


Inspired by this post, I tried the backwards necklace look. If you want to try this out for yourself, I suggest first purchasing a shirt that will let you get this trend right. Something with a low sweeping back--the lower you choose, the longer the necklace can be. I chose a long link necklace in 14k yellow gold with a large 18k yellow gold flower pendant.

Will you try this look?

***Check out my etsy shop I just opened...I will be adding three new charity bracelets using the new cord colors I just got. If you want a particular color not shown, let me know!
