I love to redesign old jewelry for customers and the mother of all redesign opportunities was literally handed to me in March. My gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, had to take off her engagement ring ahead of a minor medical procedure, only to find that it couldn’t be budged. The ring had to be cut off. BarbaraB […]

I’m in love with the Paul Andrew Chrysler-Building boots that I saw in a Bergdorf Goodman catalog. Maybe I can wear them with my Zang Toi gown that depicts the Time Warner Center and the Hearst Tower … … and accessorize with my Taxi and Passenger Maneater ring, which is engraved with the Brooklyn Bridge. […]

I’m happy to see that jewelry guru Cindy Edelstein’s latest TrendTracker post for National Jeweler is about Y-necklaces. Cindy writes: “You knew it had to have a comeback soon … the Y-neck of the 1990s is back en vogue now and enough time has passed so that we’re actually enjoying it. This time around they’re […]

Thank you to gorgeous Brecken Branstrator for including my one-of-a-kind She Sells Seashells ring in her National Jeweler post on summer-inspired jewelry! The 18K-rose-gold ring features a hand-carved rose-quartz “shell” and diamonds. It makes a statement but it’s not a red-carpet-only ring. You can definitely wear this one on a casual day. Just don’t wear […]

I want to highlight one of the styles I introduced in yesterday’s post: the ankle bracelet, aka anklet. While anklets have been around since ancient times and are still a perennial in some cultures, in the U.S. they’ve gone in and out of fashion. I say they’re due for a big, fine-jewelry comeback! In recent […]

It’s rare that I get to introduce a full collection (nearly) all at once. Usually I’m creating and revealing just one or two designs at a time. But today is different! June’s Jewels of the Month are the first nine styles of my brand-new Punk Platinum line. I was inspired to do this collection after […]

Cindy Edelstein of National Jeweler reports in her weekly TrendTracker post that turquoise is “having a real moment in the sun.” That’s an appropriate description, seeing as the cheerfully colored stone is perfect for summer. Of course, just because we use a bright color in our jewelry doesn’t mean we can’t be our morbid, skull-loving […]

I’m excited to see my customer Hi-Rez getting some much-deserved attention. Rez recently teamed up with YouTube prankster Coby Persin, sauntered into a Times Square McDonald’s, and rapped a crazy-ass order to the befuddlement of the McDonald’s staff. The video was shared by Lil Wayne on Facebook and has close to five million views. Not […]

I love lists titled “The Best of the Best,” because it makes me think of the overeager West Point graduate in Men in Black who barks “Because we’re the best of the best of the best … SIR!” I love “Best of the Best” lists even more when I’m part of them! I had just […]
