Last year, I declared that big hoop earrings were due for a comeback after the fashion-world frenzy for ear cuffs, ear climbers, earring jackets, “front-back” earrings and mismatched studs.

Apple has a software update called iOS 9.1 and it’s got 150 new emojis, including the much-desired middle finger! Of course, I’ve been offering middle finger emoji jewelry (inspired by Eminem’s distinctive bird-flipping) since 2013. I wear the 18K gold version of my single stud earring every day.

Today I found out that fitting oh-so-perfectly into a New York Times consumer-trend story can make a person feel really … basic.

Opals are relatively soft gems — about as hard as glass — that are more easily scratched than other stones. Once in a while, someone makes […]

Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

In celebration, I have a few new photos of my one-of-a-kind Susan earrings, which are back on my website after a hiatus. I’m making them my Jewel […]

Today is World Emoji Day, and if you’ve been wondering why, check the date on the calendar emoji*. According to Emojipedia, July 17 was selected because iCal for Mac was announced at MacWorld Expo on July 17, 2002. The calendar emoji, in turn, inspired Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge to declare World Emoji Day. And what’s […]

According to the astrological calendar, the sign of Cancer rules from June 21 to July 22.  Cancer is the Latin word for crab, which is why the zodiac sign is represented by a crab and why my Jewels of the Month are my crab emoji designs. You might not be familiar with the crab emoji […]
