BAUBLE OF THE WEEK

J.Crew, $50

Usually my jewelry M.O. is “bigger is better,” but lately I’ve been drawn to delicate pieces like this J.Crew necklace. Nothing embodies a carefree summer quite like layers of sleek strands.

Erickson Beamon Rocks, $148

I hadn’t really paid attention to Erickson Beamon Rocks, the lower priced alternative to Erickson Beamon’s signature collection, but this dazzling bracelet steals the show at just $148. Even if you don’t have a cocktail occasion to wear it now, tuck it away for impromptu evenings out and for holiday seasons to come.

Ashley Childs, prices vary

Ever since I stumbled across Ashley Childs’ work on Instagram, I’ve been smitten with the movement of these delicate chain maille mesh pendants. The sculptural pieces come in various sizes from a dainty silver pendant to a triple layered statement piece (my favorite).

Loren Stewart, $295

I have a soft spot for emeralds, my birthstone, but I have yet to add the green gem to my collection. I assumed my first emerald would be a sparkly, finely cut piece, but I’m actually quite drawn to the organic shapes of this dainty ring by Loren Stewart. The band features an emerald, opal and diamond set on a 14k gold band. (There’s also a turquoise version.)

Reminder: Enter to win $300 to spend on art at UGallery.com!

BAUBLE OF THE WEEK

Julie Vos, $330

I’ve long been a fan of the Julie Vos’ work and one of my favorite pieces is this showstopping pendant. I’ll admit that it’s not a cheap indulgence at $330, but it’s a piece you’ll reach for again and again this summer. If your budget is a bit more modest, check out the "Friday Deal" section on her site for a selection of discounted beauties. (I couldn’t resist this cuff in sapphire blue.) There’s always free shipping and you can take 25% off your purchase with code SUMMER25. 

Speaking of great deals, don’t miss out on the Lulu Frost online sample sale that ends tonight. The pendant I bought is still available and this new addition is irresistible.

Kelly Wearstler, $165

I included this ring in a previous “Currently Coveting” post, but that’s not nearly enough recognition for this quirky signet ring from Kelly Wearstler. Appropriately named “revelry,” a pair of legs is joyfully kicking up heels on the face of this showstopper. Want something slightly more subtle? Check out this lippy signet ring

Alexis Bittar, $215

I’ve long admired Alexis Bittar’s work and the end-of-season sale at Charm & Chain makes it awfully tempting to add one of his Lucite gems to my collection.

Kendra Scott, $195

Every item in Kendra Scott’s LUXE collection is gorgeous, but I’m partial to this dainty ring and the pave studs above. Everyone’s jewelry box could use a jolt of pink agate, right?

Lele Sadoughi, $125

This hematite cocktail ring by Lele Sadoughi is everything: sleek, modern, and affordable. If I hadn’t been on such a spending frenzy lately, this would be tucked away in my pre-order cart on Moda Operandi. (The trunk sale ends on my birthday. It’s basically destined to be mine, isn’t it?) There is a bright side to the pre-order preview, however. Now I have time to save my pennies and until its official launch later this summer.

Available in tiger’s eye or mother of pearl, these semi-precious stone earrings by Henri Bendel are ideal for summer’s safari-inspired ensembles. Wear them with a breezy summer dress, smart chino shorts, or this playful animal print romper.
