Based in NYC, Wendy Mink designs jewelry influenced by her love of history and her far-flung travels — think Victorian drama fused with Indian flair, by way of Tibet. Uptown, downtown; high, low; East, West: Mink's collection of meandering, organic shapes, drenched in gold vermeil and semi-precious stones, represents the perfect culture clash. A team of Tibetan artisans uses ancient techniques such as hammering, molding, and wire-wrapping to handcraft all of Mink’s turquoise rings, lapis lazuli and blue calcite drop earrings, labradorite necklaces and other designs. Synthetic resin adds plenty of chic, sharp shocks of color to Wendy Mink’s gold and silver wares.
If like your jewelry with an eccentric twist, you're going to fall hard for these unconventional finds from labels like Vanessa Mooney and Soixante Neuf. Textured copper beads, gold chains and spikes, and silver arrowheads adorn drop earrings, woven cuffs, pedant necklaces, and handmade rings. Your go-to silk blouse just got a little bit cooler.
Give a nod to the season with candy-colored gems, oversized flowers, and clusters of crystals.
Ornate necklaces, earrings, and cuffs deliver a decidedly exotic punch.
While these baubles are certainly delicate, we love that they’re not too precious for everyday wear. Several pieces have a fine, filigree-like look about them, including the leaf pendant and earrings. Others set colored stones into appealing arrangements, like multi-stone necklaces and slim, stacking rings.
