My Jewel Box: Arik Kastan Labradorite Rings

A jewelry line that I fell head-over-heels in love with while at Couture this year--Arik Kastan.  I had so much fun trying on ALL the rings; and there were so many!  From luscious turquoise, cute hearts, magical moonstone and labradorite, to unique eternity bands...I was in heaven.  The gemstone variety of the line is perfectly on trend. Gemstones that everyone wants right now--like garnet, moonstone, turquoise, sapphire and labradorite--are the main players in this line.

Are you obsessed with the navette shaped rings like I am?  Well, Arik Kastan has their own version which they customize using different gemstones.  I am also a huge fan of their cluster stud earrings because they are so incredibly wearable.  I love the above photo where two pairs are worn--it's like stacking for your ear!  Their padlock pendants and link bracelets are amazing as well.  Both antique inspired, like the rest of the line.

It was hard for me to choose what was coming home with me and into my jewelry box. I love the look of the three-stone rings from Arik Kastan, and the labradorite was calling my name!  The sheen of the stones is so magical; it's different in all directions. The rings in the collection are all SO stackable, I decided to go for a big look by stacking two three-stone rings in labradorite--one in oval and the other in the round shape.  I've been wearing my stack for a week straight now and have gotten so many compliments!  

Do you own any Arik Kastan pieces?  Send me your photos and I will share on Instagram!

My Jewel Box: Stud Heaven

My stud collection has been continually growing lately thanks to some categories I've created based on what I like and what looks good for my ear shape/hair style. Here are the categories:

1. Wing shaped or ribbon-like studs

2. Gemstone studs

3. Pearl studs

4. Cross studs

5. all yellow gold studs

6. diamond studs

I really like the new 14k yellow gold faceted studs that I recently got--they have a large octagonal shape and take up most of my ear lobe.  And my studs are all sprawled across the book I am currently reading: Daphne Guinness.
