Jewelry Lookbook: Ashley Olsen


Something that always interests me is jewelry combinations and how each individual puts together their jewelry for the day.  Ashley Olsen never ceases to amaze and always comes up with some great mixtures.  From what can be seen, she is wearing her Cartier watch, a large black stone ring, and possibly a crowned diamond heart ring.  Not sure what the other rings are! Take a look at some similar choices if you are wanting to achieve this same jeweled look.


A crowned heart is a known symbol of love and loyalty. This one is priced at $5500 from Fay Cullen. It is a 1 carat heart shaped diamond set in platinum. A definite necessity in anyone's ring collection.


Although Ashley's black stone ring is larger and pear-shaped, this one still gives a similar effect. Designed by Pippa Small, the black stone is actually a Labradorite. I think Ashley's ring is an onyx. The Labradorite is set in 22k yellow gold, found on TWIST for $1685.


This is the exact watch Ashley has and was featured in her book Influence. Found the match at, not sure how reputable this company is, although they have high ratings under Bizrate. It is called the Cartier Pasha Seatimer Men's Steel Watch and sells for $4975 on their website.

Tutti Frutti, oh Jewelry

Summer is surely on the way, nothing like some tutti frutti jewelry to cool things down! Trying to decide if these colorful pieces of jewelry are for summer only, or if anyone would rock these during the winter? I'm not even sure! What do you think?


This bold, multi-stone ring screams Tutti Frutti just like Little Richard would. It is set in 14k yellow gold and all of the stones are actually sapphires. The ring can be found on Israel Rose and listed for $3250. Size 7.5


I love the chunkiness of this bracelet, and the gems used couldn't be more perfect. You've got some rose quartz, some malachite, amethyst, and other topaz, all cabochon cut. From the Ross-Simons Estate Collection.


Like a treasure washed up on the beach, this necklace reminds me of some bright sea glass strung together. Apatite, amethyst, citrine, fire opal, garnet, tanzanite, emerald, peridot and pure, 24K gold beads make up this necklace. Designed by Yossi Harari and featured at TWIST, price: $1810.

Ring Scene at Delamina

I found four perfect rings, to be worn at the same time, on two hands, all in one place!  That would be Delamina.  I like picking out ring combinations, whether its mixing new with vintage, or white gold with yellow gold, you can't go wrong.  It depends on your style; go with your gut!  I would wear these rings in this order:  



The bold Peruvian opal and matte 18k gold looks like you've acquired this on some extensive travels. Love the star set diamonds, creates even more of an eclectic feel. Price: $3875, designed by Susan Foster, at Delamina.


Don't be afraid to mix white and yellow metal. This platinum filigree ring looks like it should have been worn in the 20s. It is actually brand new and features an amazing moonstone. Price: $5000 and is eligible for $500 Delamina Dollars off the price, for more info click here.


So bold, and the pear-shape is the best cut for this sort of ring. That stone is a chalcedony, which is the prettiest powder blue you'll ever lay eyes on. Done in 18k yellow gold and designed by Dov Pedah. Price: $3000 at Delamina.


A band of black diamonds is all you need next to 31 carats of chalcedony! This beautiful band is done in 18k yellow gold and is designed by Ian Saude. Price: $2105 at Delamina.

Jewelry Style Inspiration: Princess Diana


Totally 1980s, but I love this look Princess Diana is sporting.  The double watches needs to become popular, she makes it look so elegant.  Princess Diana has a style so unique, without looking like she is trying too hard.  She is seen here wearing a gold woven bracelet, which was a popular 80s trend.  Her infamous sapphire engagement ring is on her ring finger, which has 14 diamonds surrounding the oval blue stone.  On her right hand she is wearing a diamond eternity band and a pinky ring which may be a plain gold band or a signet ring.
