I planned to wear my traditional Moschino heart dress for Valentine’s dinner with MrB, only to realize at the last minute that the dress was at the cleaner’s. Alas! I was thrown off by the clothing surprise, but, on the plus side, I was inspired to wear a vintage Donald Brooks piece that I first […]

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you don’t have a Valentine, maybe you can be mine. I’m not shy about saying it: I’m your No. 1 fan!   The final entry for my Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day countdown is my brand-new emoji-inspired earring.   I decided to improve upon the standard pointing finger emoji … … and turn it […]

I’ve been excited about rubies for my Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day countdown, so here are some more rubies with a punk twist. Proving Valentine’s Day red doesn’t have to be all hearts are these ruby-eyed skull earrings. There’s a matching necklace … … and a ring. For those with an unlimited budget, I’d recommend a different […]

The Vampire Diana heart ring has been a Jewel of the Month before, but I’ve got to revisit it for this Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day countdown. My Vampire Diana designs — hearts with stakes through them — were inspired by my favorite bloodsucker, Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I started out with a silver ring […]

Here’s a jewelry design for Throwback Thursday that’s also ruby-red for Valentine’s Day: my Lady Jane necklace. The true story of Lady Jane Grey — the “Nine Day Queen” of Tudor times — inspired me to create this teardrop-shaped pendant in 2008. It was made from two pieces of custom-cut rock crystal, loose rubies, and […]

For today’s anti-Valentine’s Day choice, I’ve got a classic mismatched earring pair. “Screw U” comes in silver … … and 18K yellow gold. If you’re in one of those “it’s complicated” relationships that has a lot of ups and downs, you can get the single heart earring as well. That way you’re prepared for the […]

You’ve got one more day to order for Valentine’s Day delivery. How about this BAE necklace for your bae? I like the way “bae” can be applied to your girlfriend or your platonic gal pal. If you don’t have a Valentine, get it for your Galentine!

I’m definitely NOT feeling the love today, which is good, because it’s time for an anti-Valentine’s Day choice for my Valentine’s Day/anti-Valentine’s Day jewelry gift-guide countdown. I’ve got a few suggestions today, starting with my GTFOH necklace. GTFOH is what I thought when someone pointed out this Louis Vuitton hashtag earring to me last night. […]

How’s THIS for a Super Bowl 50 ring? Today’s Valentine’s Day selection is the redesigned engagement/50th anniversary ring I made for my mother last year, using her original center diamond and baguettes. Obviously you can’t buy this particular ring but I can use this style of platinum setting for any custom engagement ring. If you’re […]

Damn, girl! The day before hitting the stage with Coldplay at the Super Bowl, Beyonce released a surprise single and video called “Formation.” She outdid herself with this Hurricane-Katrina-referring tribute to black pride and black power. Here’s a tweet that sums it up nicely. She is the biggest star in the world, standing on a […]
