La Vie en Pearl
Lynn Konrad’s Artisan Jewelry and Antiques ($39, www.LynnKonrad.com) instantly transport you to a sidewalk café in Paris. These sterling silver angel earrings with dangling luster shell pearls are made from replicas of an original Art Nouveau piece. Also available with pink or saltwater pearls, or Swarovski crystal.
Message Rings ($36 each, www.amypetersstudio.com) from Amy Peters are wafer thin but full of love. With inscriptions like “Forever Grateful,” “Always Dreaming,” “Learning to Fly” or my fave “Seeking Peace” on each sterling silver band, they let a child say how much they care without breaking the bank.
Save The Date
This vintage-inspired Signature Calendar Necklace (from $150, www.dallanonnajewelry.com), revamps a classic look for a new century. Select your stone to mark a meaningful date and wear it close to your heart. Available in 14k yellow, rose or white gold, or sterling silver.
The Essence of Motherhood
Handmade with Swiss blue topaz, purple and pink amethyst gemstones and sterling silver, the Mother’s Love bracelet ($159, www.essencebracelets.com) is all about healing first and jewelry second. Symbolizing the unbreakable bond between mother and child, the bracelet is blessed by a healing practitioner and is packaged in a decorative tin.
Every Bit Counts
