Gemma Redux founder Rachel Dooley earned a mechanical engineering degree and even graduated from law school before realizing her true calling: designing exquisite jewelry. Based in NYC, Dooley has a knack for creating earrings, chain necklaces, and other pieces that are both feminine yet tough: think a handmade brass cuff bracelet accented with a chunky marquise-cut turquoise stone, vintage-inspired pearl and chain earrings, or a statement necklace accented with crystals and metal spikes. A favorite among celebs such as Cameron Diaz, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jessica Alba and Molly Sims, Gemma Redux jewelry has appeared on NBC’s <I>Today</i> show and in the pages of <i>Harper’s Bazaar</i>, <i>WWD</i> and <i>Glamour</i>.
Talk about statement jewelry: This selection of SCOSHA and Gemma Redux baubles is not for the style wallflower. Multi-strand necklaces and bright stones rule the Gemma Redux collection, with standout pieces like the Amalia necklace, featuring lapis howlite beads on a double-strand chain. And you’ll love the vintage charm of SCOSHA’s unique pendants: Check out the gold-plated brass necklace, featuring a pendant stamped with the words, “It’s my story and I will tell it how I want.”
Now is the time to indulge in those final finishing pieces that otherwise seemed out of reach. Check out the edgy selection from Dannijo, full of twisted, mixed-metal jewelry. Or go for the coiled, braided necklaces by Sur Evolution that convey a subtle but impactful style statement. Another group to take notice of are the geometric pieces from Kara Ross, combining gold-toned hexagons with bright, inlaid stingray leather.
From understated to bold and bright, this selection of baubles is full of unique, statement-making pieces. Look to DANNIJO for a tough-girl edge in the leather wrap bracelet with plated brass studs. See Sur Evolution for whimsical earrings that range in shape from delicate gold-plated leaves to textured pieces of miniature driftwood. And for big jewelry with big impact, check out Rachel Leigh’s boisterous multi-chain necklaces, from plain gold to rhinestone clusters.
These two designers use chains to stunning effect. Tied up and tied down, but always tangled, the heavy metal is wrapped around chunky stones like tourmaline, quartz and jade. From rippling chainmail earrings to bib necklaces to make you drool, the designs of Gemma Redux and Jennifer Rose set off a gorgeous chain reaction.
