Good morning, my dears!
I thought I would dive right in and show you the crown. This is the incredible piece that I was wearing in my 2 year blog birthday post. (There were zero photos that showed both me and the crown looking our best, but I really wanted you to see it on a person.)
This gorgeous tiara is the work of Greek designer Thyreos Vassiliki. It’s made of 18k gold and diamonds. It’s surprisingly light and comfortable. Everyone at the JCK Blogger’s Preview had a ball trying it on.
Here’s a cuff bracelet by the same designer. I love the presence it has with its bold, sculptural feel and the interesting texture on the gold.
I think these diamond ear climbers by Rina Limor are just about perfect. They look like crystallized soap bubbles, tiny and light and wonderful. I would wear them with everything.
I could not get enough of the colors in this line of amazonite jewelry with tsavorite garnet and diamond accents from Doves by Doron Paloma. Don’t you want to wear this pendant on an island?
I always jump at the chance to see Omi Privé’s jewels in person, and these two beautiful blues were no disappointment. The left is a tanzanite, right is a sapphire.
Here’s a better look at the tanzanite.
A fabulous yellow gold and emerald pendant by Omi Privé. Such a dark, bewitching beauty to this piece.
A super-cool, vaguely 1970’s sautoir by The Mazza Company: this beauty is made from black onyx, red coral, and 14k gold.
A hand full of rings by Simon G and Sethi Couture! You know I can’t resist an opportunity to stack.
Neha Dani had several extremely cool pairs of earrings on display; these were my favorites. Aren’t they stunning? Like gilded sea coral.
Speaking of standout earrings: check out these, by the fabulous Sethi Couture. The colors, the lines! That’s blue sapphires, white diamonds, and tsavorite garnets making up that beautiful design.
Here’s a pretty opal and diamond ring by Spark Creations. How great is that side detail with the gold frond reaching out over the surface of the opal? That’s my favorite part.
These two Art Deco-inspired cocktail rings are by ZIVA jewels. Aren’t they delicious?
Up close and personal with that square ZIVA ring.
I couldn’t get enough of this cabochon gemstone and diamond bracelet by Vivaan. You know how I feel about colorful jewelry.
I visited the Mastoloni Pearls booth, where I had the great privilege of playing with this river of natural pearls.
I also had the chance to check out Mastoloni Pearls’ ear climbers, which I’d heard were fantastic. And they are: so perfectly proportioned and so comfortable to wear.
One last peek at that Omi Privé tanzanite. Sigh.
As before, I want to thank JCK Events, Communique LA, and all of the vendors who took the time to show me their beautiful wares. I had a truly glorious experience.
