A simple half eternity band in all sapphires is sometimes all you need! Arik Kastan makes all bands by hand using genuine gemstones and every detail is priority. The comfort of this band is something you need to see for yourself!

Half Eternity band in sapphires, Price: $1,166


Love these drop earrings done in 14k rose gold and sapphires because they combine a few of my favorite aspects of jewelry. One, they have a vintage style--the filigree speaks for itself. Two, they are bold which is what we're wanting for Fall. And lastly, they are easy to style and will stun with any outfit.

Arabesque drop earrings, Price: $1,890


The newest baby within the Arik Kastan collection, the Flower Mandala ring, really calms and soothes both in design and gemstone choice. With sapphires being said to relieve stress and help clear the mind, this bold ring will be your guiding light. Sapphire petals and diamond details, all set in our signature 14k rose gold.

Flower Mandala ring, Price: $1,760


In love with the aquamarine and sapphire color combo of these Nouveau Oval drop earrings. It is a juxtaposition between the soft, romantic aquamarine and the edgy, dark sapphires that has us swooning.

The Framed Flower ring mixes some bohemian vibes with what every girl wants in a ring: stunning sparkle. I can't think of a better gemstone than sapphire to pull this off. Simple yet powerful; love this ring!!

Gem Gossip Collaborates: Four Gemstones, Two Jewelry Mavens 

I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel Garrahan while in Los Angeles at one of LoveGold's events.  Our love for jewelry instantly bonded us and we definitely wanted to collaborate to bring our readers something fun! We decided upon picking four gemstones--Emerald, Sapphire, Moonstone & Tourmaline--and each pick two pieces of jewelry that we loved which featured each stone in the best way possible.  My take was to search on 1stdibs, a website I continually browse and adore, and pull pieces that were antique or vintage.  Rachel chose to make her selections from designers based where she lives--LA, hopping in her car (naturally) to search the city's best boutiques from Single Stone on Mission Street on the eastside, to Broken English and Jaimie Geller on the westside, to hunt down the finest gems on offer. 

Rachel writes about fashion and jewellery for publications including the Financial Times and The Jewellery Editor, most recently acting as guest editor for the luxury gem magazine's Oscars and US award season coverage. Originally from London, she has lived in Los Angeles for eight years and enjoys designing and making jewellery when she's not writing about it.

Paolo Costagli and his ombrÄ— jewels

ombre ombre-hair-1

Ombré is a French term for the word shading--usually done from light to dark. In fashion, ombré has been popular on and off for quite some time. Whether it's shades of purple on a long gown, or shades of blonde on a head of hair, ombré has been extremely popular lately. Ombre hair is the new must-have hair style, with Drew Barrymore and Rachel Bilson sporting the look above. But how can ombré be translated into jewelry? Paolo Costagli knows exactly how to do this, with his Ombré Collection. Eternity bands and hoop earrings feature the shades of blue, yellow, green and pink of the multi-colored gemstone sapphire. Each goes from light to dark in a way that is both subtle and dramatic at the same time! Earrings: green sapphire, blue sapphire and orange sapphire all $2800 each, pink sapphire $3250. Rings: green sapphire, blue sapphire, orange sapphire and pink sapphire all $950 each.
