IOSSELLIANI does it again

IOSSELLIANI never fails to impress--stacking rings just looks so cool in every way possible. Most of their pieces are done in silver, however if you're like me and will only wear solid yellow/white gold, you sort of have to hunt them down. Found the above three different stacks at Honey in the Rough, a boutique in the Lower East side of Manhattan. All these rings are 18k yellow or white gold, with real gemstones and river pearls--no faking it here!

Alexa Chung's Jewelry at the Whitney Museum Gala

exa al

Alexa Chung looked gorgeous in the prettiest periwinkle minidress at the 2009 Whitney Museum Gala in New York. Fashion bloggers loved her look, but I was more concerned with her jewelry. Her choices were so subtle, and so perfect. I love the skull cameo necklace, with two antique rings worn on the pinkie and ring finger on her right hand. Below are two similar rings along with the exact cameo skull necklace.


The exact skull cameo necklace worn by Alexa Chung at the Whitney Museum Gala can be yours as well! This necklace is done in 18k yellow gold, designed by Iosselliani. It can be purchased at Aloha Rag by clicking here. Price: $992

On Alexa's ring finger is a dark stone ring--not exactly sure what it is but I think this would be a good choice. It has a similar dark feel, but rather than a skull it is a lady. This ring is vintage Art Deco from Sylvia's Antiques. It is done in 18k white gold with a black hardstone intaglio. Price: $595

As a contrast to the two "non-sparkly" pieces, a white gold antique diamond ring is perfect. The 1950s style of this ring is so collectible. These little rings from this time period are fun--this one's done in 14k white gold with 1.2 carats of diamonds. From Beladora2 and priced at $1350. Beladora also has several others!

Designer Spotlight: Iosselliani


I've always had a thing for Italian crafted jewelry.  I think it stems from being half Italian myself, but I've also experienced owning Italian jewelry purchased by my grandparents on their trips to Italy.  To read more, browse this post I did earlier.  Without further ado, I'd like to spotlight some amazing jewelry, handcrafted in Italy by designer Iosselliani. Explore their site to find where to shop for the amazing pieces they create.

Very glamourous, this single ring looks like it is several stacked on top the other. Convenient if you want that stacked look, but are in a hurry to slip just one on. Made of 18k yellow gold, with the stones being a quartz and a zircon.  Priced at $1545.
Here is a set of three bangle bracelets. I love how delicate they are and they flow together perfectly. Made of 18k yellow gold and sapphires. Priced at $940.


This is a pearl ring like no other. The setting that the pearl is placed in is edgy and exciting. Priced at $875.
