Arik Kastan vintage padlocks.
I’d never take these off. Ever.
Rough diamonds will always be a front runner in my quest to find a unique engagement (fantasizing for now…) ring. Big tacky honkin’ rocks just don’t cut it for me.
THIS IS IT.

I love me some Jacquie Aiche & I want me that body.
Would it be weird to say that I would rather wear this abstract beauty than don a regular wedding ring? (After I find a friend boy first of course.)
I am in LOVE with this Bao Bao Wan diamond encrusted coin necklace. Being from Chinese descent, I love the subtle cultural aspect of the piece. I’m fawning over the mix of it’s old world symbolism with a contemporary twist. I’d rock this baby every day.
I’ll take two of each. Thank you.
I’m pretty gung-ho on finding a few pieces that I can layer over each other while still maintaining a balance of femininity and structure. I don’t want to end up looking like I grabbed a few necklaces in the dark and piled it on. A few key pieces I’m definitely considering, all under $150. (This is also an extended Christmas list. *wink wink*)

Shahla Kareen is the genius mastermind behind Ludevine. Self taught in the craft of jewelry making, Kareen expresses her concepts through all different kinds of mediums.
“For Shahla each creation has a specific intention, a life message which she hopes to transmit to the receiver. And each of her pieces is a shrine and an exultation to elements which move her in her core. Within her jewelry line, Ludevine’s ‘Primitive’ collection, life and death are equally celebrated. An ode to rebirth and resurrection with the understanding that things die one way or another, whether animal or fashion trend. She utilizes the mystical sea horse in combination with the ammonite fossil, and lovingly wraps them in sparkling diamonds and solid gold to pay hommage to nature’s exquisite marvels.”
I love the wide range of creativity that the Ludevine collection boasts. From sharp angled simplistic rings, to a pygmy seahorse necklace dripping in onyx and moonstones. I have a feeling that we’re going to see A LOT more of Ludevine in the coming years.

Geeta Patel graces our blog twice in a row! Babette is the more feminine and mature sister of Language. Vintage gold flowers, herkimers, leather florals, and breathtaking druzys are an integral component of the line. My favorite thing about Babette is the refined nature of each piece. No fuss, & not over designed.

The new 2011 collection is breathtaking. GJ’s safety pin baubles are number one on my wish list. She takes such an ordinary object and reworks it into a covetable (Is that a word?) and glamorous piece of art. I love the simplistic lines of the cuffs which are traced by precious stones and diamonds. The crosses just takes my love of religious symbols to another level.

I honestly don’t have words to describe the genius behind this brand. Let’s just say if I could wear one brand of jewelry for the rest of my life…Iosselliani would be the one. The masterminds behind Iosselliani are Roberta Paolucci and Paolo Giacomelli, and I would like to thank them for producing such innovative and beautiful pieces of art. The attention to detail to me is impeccable, down to the very last chain. The marriage between such different spectrums of materials and colors all somehow work together when they give it their magic touch. Little girls dream of Barbies….I dream of Iosselliani.
I have so many saved pictures of their jewelry, I don’t think tumblr can handle it. Ha. Here is 1/300 of them.
