Pade Vavra's diamond-heavy jewelry combines a refined sensibility — courtesy of her former life as an interior designer — with the nature-loving attitude she'd acquired after years of family camping trips up and down the coast of California. Thorns, antlers, teeth and lava are rendered in hammered 18K gold, liberal dustings of diamonds, clusters of pearls, and spears of aqua quartz. Decidedly luxe, these ornately embellished jewels may be organically inspired, but they beg to be worn in the city.
This collection captures the raw, organic nature of its materials, combining delicate metalwork with rustic gem formations and druzies to stunning effect. Do the bright thing and opt for a pair of Uruguayan amethyst earrings or add serious drama with the gold-encased, lava-rock drops.
For a little shine or a lot of notice-me sparkle, check out the supremely well-priced baubles in this sale. Get delicate touches with the charm necklaces, stud earrings, and stackable rings. Bolder, edgier looks consist of embellished bangles, thick cuffs, crystal-heavy bibs, giant medallions, and more.
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.
