My Jewel Box: Stud Heaven

DSCF2905 DSCF2906 DSCF2907 DSCF2912

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.  

My Jewel Box: Three New Jewels

With all the focus on buying my first home, buying jewelry is smartly on the backburner. But a jewelry lover will always be a jewelry lover, and somehow manage to acquire some new pieces of jewelry! The first ring is one I've been wanting for quite sometime--the Anubis ring designed by Arosha Taglia.  It is 14k yellow gold and set with a white zircon gemstone.  It went on sale right after the holidays and I couldn't pass up the discounted price. The second ring holds a title amongst my collection--it is the oldest piece of jewelry I own.  It is two hands clasping each other in 18k yellow gold.  I believe it is circa 1850.  The pearl stud earrings were purchased to comemorate the Pearl Grading Lab class I completed in Atlanta through SJTA for GIA.  After learning as much as possible about grading pearls for seven hours, I had to pick up a pair of the prettiest hue I saw at the Atlanta jewelry show.

Leather & Pearls from Pearls of Joy

A newly found favorite combination for me is pearls and leather. With the popularity of leather bomber jackets and Spring time looming, now is the perfect time to get yourself some pearl jewelry to go with your leather. The photo above gives you an idea of how I chose to do this look--a black leather cropped blazer, with an 80 inch gray pearl necklace and 8mm white pearl stud earrings. I think it is a great idea to mix pearl colors--if you wear all white pearls, it may look too matchy-matchy and out-of-date. Pearls of Joy offers some great colors and sizes in pearl studs. Their prices allow you to buy more than one pair, or can even make great gifts for bridal jewelry.
