How To Wear Hoop Earrings Without Looking Skanky

Kerry Washington looks gorgeous in her hoop earrings, and this mighty appearance is being heralded as the return of the massive ear accessory (which we’ll kind of take with a grain of salt). While we’re vehement supporters of statement jewelry, we’re not at all into the idea of accessory overkill, which the hoops can easily foster. Take the jump for five tips to help you rock big hoops without looking tacky. Keep reading »

One Person’s Oral Fixation Is Another Person’s Necklace

Australian jewelry brand Chewed by Tuesday creates precious metal pieces “based on random items that people chew. But aren’t meant to chew.” Handmade in Melbourne, the first offering by designer Vivienne Gibson is a sterling silver pen cap based on the classic Bic pen’s cap. Depending on your taste, the necklace is available in chewed and unchewed varieties. What chomped objects will she turn into jewelry next, stirring sticks or fingernails?

Mobama Is, Like, Obsessed With Monique Pean

With Earth Day quickly approaching, it’s time to devote your attention to nature. Whether you’re one of the smart few who regularly works to keep our planet healthy, or you’ve just become inspired as of late, it’s important to recognize those who marry their talents with their passion to save the world. One jewelry designer who’s always given her attention to Mother Nature is Monique Pean. And she has some major support, in the form of Michelle Obama. The designer started her career in finance, but realized her passion for jewelry and launched her own line in 2005, with a major focus on staying socially responsible and eco-friendly by using conflict-free stones only. Monique won the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the 2009 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Accessories, partnered with Charity:Water, and supports the No Dirty Gold campaign — proving that her talent is one to watch, for both her message and gems. In the time she’s been creating, she quickly she gained the love of MObama. Recently, the First Lady was spotted in Mexico City, practically dripping in jewelry by Monique Pean. Check her stuff out here. Keep reading »

Jennifer Lopez Wears Good Earrings In A Bad Movie

India Earrings, $68, Judith Bright
Gold Paisley Earrings, $58, Judith Bright

Sometimes trailers do the opposite of what they’re supposed to do, which is get you to go to the movie. After seeing the preview for Jennifer Lopez‘s new movie, “The Back-up Plan,” I definitely won’t be plunking down $15 to see it in theaters. However, I might take the money I save by not watching it and put that toward the purchase of a pair of earrings she wears in the movie. Three different Judith Bright earring styles adorn Jennifer’s ears in “The Back-up Plan,” and while I tend to go for post earrings, these simple danglers would be a fun change, especially since they won’t completely deplete my bank account at $53 to $68 a pair. And, if you do end up seeing the film, send the jewelry company your ticket stub by May 31 for 20 percent off, which will essentially recoup the cost of your movie ticket.

Obsessing Over Fenton/Fallon For J.Crew

There’s not much to say about the Fenton/Fallon for J.Crew jewelry collaboration. It’s just awesome. The drapey, multi-tier look that so many try and fail to do well has been accomplished, the chains are bright but not over-shiny, and we want literally every single piece from the collection. Sadly, it’s not cheap, so we’ve found a favorite in this side drape necklace, which may very well be worth the investment. Check out the whole collection here.

What Would You Build On Top Of This Lego Ring?

Playing with Legos might be a little juvenile, but can we wear them? Accessories designers Dee and Ricky Jackson have built an empire based on Lego belts, pins, and rings, with fans like Kanye West. But we think metalsmith Shannon Conrad’s $70 2×2 Building Block Ring is a heck of a lot better than Dee and Ricky’s $200 Interchangable Lego Block Ring. Shannon cast the ring in reclaimed sterling silver, and while it looks pretty cool on its own, what makes it even more fun is that you can build on top, changing up the ring as you please. What do you think? [Makers Market] Keep reading »
