New York Themed Jewelry? A Stunning Tribute

These Brooklyn Bridge-inspired hoop earrings were created in conjunction with the New York Historical Society. The tiny masterpieces are the work of talented Manhattan-based jewelry designer Cynthia Gale and part of her latest signature jewelry collection: The City That Never Sleeps. In fact, these gleaming sterling silver beauties are a tribute to the New York Historical Society’s Irving Browning collection, which immortalizes his career as a photographer and cinematographer.

Customized Hand Stamped Jewelry Trend

Customized, hand stamped jewelry is a huge trend that is definitely here to stay! A large part of the looks’ popularity is that not only are these pieces lovely, they are personalized just for you. Add one tag — or four. Incorporate children’s names, meaningful dates, or even a phrase that is special to you. Complete your look with a host of crystal, pearl or birthstone dangles. It’s a little like becoming your very own jewelry designer!

Initial Necklace: Win from Of the Earth Jewelry

One of the biggest trends in jewelry this year has been the return of the “initial” necklace. Wildly popular in the mid to late 1970’s, like many fashions from the era, the initial necklace is back! Initials now come in multiples to create Mother’s necklaces, embellished with dangling charms or pearls, or even in simple shapes hung like military “dog tags” from bead chains.
