Jewels at my Doorstep: Paige Novick

If there's one piece of jewelry you'll always see me wearing, even if I'm in pajamas and have no other jewelry on whatsoever, it is my Paige Novick diamond ear cuff. Easily the most worn piece of jewelry that I own (yes, even surpasses my engagement ring) for many reasons, one being comfort, and the second without a doubt is its effortless way of making one look pulled together. That's why when I found out Paige most recently launched a new collection called Powerful Pretty Things, I knew it was going to be great.

The inspiration on the new collection? Paige puts it best: "The more we disconnect as a culture through our myriad of devices, the more we will need to connect to something higher. Meditation has gone mainstream. We view this paradigm shift as an opportunity to bring the world of luxury and conscious living together. Hence, the genesis of Powerful Pretty Things—a highly-curated collection of modern relevant pieces with a focus on colored gemstones and their healing properties. By taking the concept of “crystals” out of its usual flower-child context into a luxurious space, we are redefining the category." This adds a whole new dimension to wearing jewelry, and we've talked about the overwhelming popularity and intrigue of crystal healing powers just recently. With the help of some extensive research on Paige's end, she has combined both worlds of jewelry and crystal healing into one, to enveil her new collection.

While mainstream consumers think "birthstone jewelry," Powerful Pretty Things aims at going above and beyond this overly commercialized category and breathe new life into gemstone jewelry. Every piece in the collection is fun, easy-to-wear, sophisticated and on point! I was able to pick an entire look from the new collection and I kept in mind the cystal-healing properties while doing so. For me, I was drawn to pink tourmaline, opal, peridot and garnet--all four of those gemstone spoke to me and I absolutely love the combination of them.

I think you'll love this new collection from Paige Novick. Take a look at the photos shot by Lauren Newman Photography against Nashville's newest mural duo, completed respectively by one east-coast and one west-coast artist.

Weekday Wardrobe: 5 Rings Stacks + Earring Look

gem gossip earring stack

Ever notice, if you're a jewelry lover, that it is the accessories that take the longest to pick out every morning?! Heck with the clothes!  I could care less what I'm wearing.  If I have a great ring stack going on, mixed with some flawless earrings and some Victorian bracelets--I'm good.  I decided to document five days of different ring looks--my "Weekday Wardrobe" if you will.  Most fashion bloggers document their outfits each day, well I'm here to document my jewelry look.  If you're wondering what I'm wearing clothing-wise in each photo...well, you should be reading a fashion blog! ;)  Here is my above earring look I wore all week.  Most times if I have a really good earring look, I'll wear it for at least an entire week.  I don't change my earrings as much and I don't own nearly as many earrings as I own rings, so this was a solid look that went with all outfits.

Can you believe it?!  Another year at Couture is over?!  The craziness of Las Vegas jewelry week has come and gone, but the memories and amazing jewelry last forever.  My last leg of the trip was spent at Couture, where I packed as much jewelry into six hours as I possibly could.  Warning: I would not try this next year!  This was my first year I attended Couture for only one day and I do not recommend doing so!  There's just way too much to see to do that to yourself!  But I made the most of it, and saw some pretty incredible pieces.

One of my goals this year was to visit with exhibitors I've never met with before.  This goal was hard because it meant I missed out on visiting with old friends and designers I had worked with in the past.  But I thought it was great to widen my circle and explore more, which led me to new designers that I am extremely excited about, like Mattioli Jewelry, Etho Maria, Phyne by Paige Novick and Diane Kordas Jewellery.  These four topped my list of designers I couldn't wait to meet and see their jewelry for the first time in person.  I was truly blown away by all four, each for different reasons.

Mattioli Jewelry was one of the first Couture appointments I made.  Those enamel and gemstone face rings is what I had been dreaming about since I first laid my eyes on them one day while on Facebook.  Seeing them in person is totally a different story!  They are inspired by a 16th century Italian painted named Arcimboldo who created masterpieces entirely out of objects like fruit, vegetables, and flowers. That totally amazed me, not to mention I wanted to get familiar with some Italian designers for my upcoming trip to Italy (!!! yes, you heard it here first!).

Etho Maria is a European company which fuses a designer brand with a manufacturing company to create exquisite pieces.  I love the boldness and the gemstone colors use in their pieces. Sold worldwide, they have a global reach and universal fan base--I could also easily see many of their pieces on the red carpet.

Phyne by Paige Novick recently launched, although the namesake designer has been designing costume jewelry for several years.  I had been a huge fan of her costume pieces, but here on Gem Gossip, I don't write about costume jewelry so I never featured her designs.  Now with the launch of her 14k gold collection I can proudly write about her as a designer and I love the pieces she has put together for the Phyne collection.  Paige was also recently inducted into the CFDA!

Diane Kordas Jewellery caught my attention several months ago on Instagram.  I chose one of her rings as a part of my #gemgossipwishlist this past holiday season.  I couldn't wait to see her pieces in person and it was so great meeting her!  The three rings I took a photo of I cannot stop thinking about--totally obsessed.  Her pieces are casual and classic, yet have this understated cool-factor to them.  Love it!
