Happy Friday, my dears!
I have a treat for you today. I put out the general call on Instagram a couple of days ago for submissions for my 2015 jewelry gift guide. I’ve gotten a lot of wonderful emails already, but one in particular contained something I liked so much that I couldn’t wait to show you.
I’ve been around Ary Esha’s jewelry several times, but never managed to get a good look before this came into my inbox. The designer and I were actually just emailing about the JANY show, where she saw me across a crowd but couldn’t leave customers to talk to me just as I was peering around the crowds to get a look at her pieces but never managed to make it through.
Thanks to the magic of Dropbox, I can now look my fill at these beauties and so can you.
I enjoy the entire Ary Esha Galaxy line, but it’s the earrings that send me into hyperspace. No gravity between us; our love was automatic.
Look at these babies. Bright colors, sparkling swoops of diamonds. They’re like celestial bodies frozen in motion.
This particular pair is called the “Veela” earrings, which I’m going to assume is a Harry Potter reference because that makes me love them even more.
Not that I needed much encouragement. I love the delicate color combination of the rainbow moonstone briolettes in their amethyst halos, but what really kills me is that delicious negative space between the gemstones and the outer white gold border.
Zetus lapetus! How cool are these? The rich color juxtaposition of the big orange citrines with the lines of amethyst and floating golden loops studding with other gemstones.
Long, lovely, and lemoney. Actually, more like lemon-limey: these beauties are lemon quartz and peridot.
Need any more reason to love the Arya Easha Galaxy pieces? The designer uses only recycled precious metals and ethically sourced gemstones and conflict and devastation free diamonds. This is beauty that does no harm.
These are the Ara earrings. They’re the pair that interested me so much that I decided I couldn’t wait to show you these beauties. They have a lot going on: the 24 cts of blue topaz, the large peridot-encrusted arcs, the smaller, lightning or sharkbite shaped pink tourmaline zig-zags.
It took me a minute to take it all in. But I couldn’t help but love them. They’re just so interesting and colorful; I think the overall effect is fresh and appealing. I think these earrings would be gorgeous on anyone, but I have a special appreciation for earrings that I think will work on brunettes like myself (go team brunette!).
Do you love these Arya Esha Galaxy collection earrings as much as I do, darlings? Which pair is your favorite?
