You know how the fashion press declares red lipstick to be in style again every few years? The same thing seems to happen with black gems. I’m pretty sure I’ve already sent out “black gems” selections to editors and store buyers twice since starting my business in 2005. It’s clearly time for a third mailing because, yesterday, WWD reported, “Jewelers are showing their dark sides, using a range of black stones — onyx, spinel, diamonds and sapphires — to create a refined sense of drama and intrigue.”
You want black gems? I’ve got them. There’s onyx …
… spinel …
… and diamonds.
Want more? Here’s the full list of my black-gem designs.
Meanwhile, She Finds says weapon-shaped jewelry is hot. Naturally, I’ve got dangerous designs for you. The most dangerous-looking one is my Matilda sword necklace: an 18K white gold sword that can be pulled out of its 18K yellow gold scabbard. Here it is sheathed …
… and here it is unsheathed.
The matching Matilda earrings don’t come with a scabbard, but they’re great candidates if you want to hop on the single earring trend I wrote about on Saturday. They were styled that way in some of the photos in a huge spread in W Magazine last year.
Last night, I wore one Matilda sword earring with one middle finger emoji earring and one of my special Skylar Grey double-ax earrings. (I have three ear piercings.) Speaking of Skylar and her double-ax logo, I have single-ax stud earrings available. You can get them in 18K yellow gold …
… or silver.
I can also do custom orders for ax earrings (and other studs) in 18K rose gold, 18K white gold or gold-plated silver. Holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com if you are interested in one of those options. And if you have any other dark and dangerous jewelry requests, feel free to send them my way. Maybe I’ll get inspired and add one of your ideas to my line!
