Bauble of the Week

No, as a matter of fact, I’m not done obsessing over pearl jewelry and this pair of earrings from Hortense is my favorite yet. The double pearl bars come in a combination of grey and white or all white and they’re actually a pretty good deal at $184 considering they’re made of solid 14k gold and real pearls.

I’m thrilled to share that Gerard Yosca and I are partnering this month to introduce you to his latest collection, Bel-Air, inspired by decorative mid-century architecture. Gerard will pass along advice on styling a statement necklace, I’ll show you how I wore the Stonebloom necklace (above) with three different outfits (proof that one great statement piece is better than a handful of cheaper alternatives), and we’ll wrap things up with a giveaway. I hope you’ll stick around for the fun! (And may I suggest adding the Mini Bloom ring to your jewelry box in the meantime?) 

Read more about Gerard in his "Behind the Baubles" feature.

I already purchased a pair of double pearl earrings (buy them on eBay for around $6) and a pearl collar, yet I still don’t see my obsession with pearl jewelry ending anytime soon. It’s hard to resist the trend when incredible pieces like this bold cuff keep popping up. You can see it in action on Rebecca’s Instagram here

If this season’s modern take on pearl jewelry isn’t for you, layering a traditional pearl ring with other gemstones can still update your look. The solitaire rings from Manhattan Pearls are reasonably priced at $95 for the sterling silver version and $125 for 18 karat gold vermeil. (Personally, think the gold one would look stunning layered atop Karen Hsiang’s crevice ring.)

I included these Tory Burch earrings in a recent "Currently Coveting" post and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the bold ’60s vibe since. They’re a carefree way to add a bit of glamour to even your most casual looks next season.

Here’s hoping that March is in like a lion and out like a lamb this year because on March 31, I’m packing away the tights for the season and accessorizing with bright, tropical colors. This pair of earrings by Melanie Auld would be perfect for the transition. They’re nearly three inches long, have a hint of sparkle and come in turquoise, coral or mother of pearl

No longer reserved for ladies who lunch, pearls are having their moment this spring. Look for modern interpretations of the classic gem, like these ladylike-with-an-edge stud earrings from Nektar De Stagni or this double pearl ring at Anthropologie

This Van Cleef & Arpels ring absolutely breathtaking—and it should be, given its price tag. Get a similar look with cherry blossom ring from Shaun Leane (which is still a splurge at nearly $500) or pile on half a dozen dainty blossoms from Forever21 (start with this and this).

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and in years past, I would have indulged in half a dozen bags of conversation hearts by now. I haven’t had a single one yet, which I credit to Easter candy sharing the shelf space. A conversation heart really can’t hold a candle to a Cadbury Creme Egg now can it? Even though I haven’t been up for V-day candy, I am up for lip motifs on my dress and by way of these adorable earrings. They’re only $65 and also come in silver. (Use code “HEARTYOU” for 20% off.)

On another note, I’m pleased to share the winner of the Chloe + Isabel giveaway! Sharon of The Tiny Heart is taking home the arrow necklace, just in time for the year’s most romantic holiday. Congrats!

I’m rarely smitten with Banana Republic’s baubles, but this vintage-inspired aqua necklace is gorgeous. I love the ombre effect of the acrylic beads with a subtle string of rhinestones for just a bit of daytime glitz. Wear it now with a LBD and keep it in rotation as summer approaches. Wouldn’t it look divine with a breezy maxi dress?
