Summer seems to go so fast. MrB makes fun of me for saying every July 4, “Summer’s almost over!” And August! Forget August. August is the Sunday of months. But don’t listen to me. Listen to MrB, who will tell you — correctly — that we have six weeks of summer left.
The latest Contemporary Jewelry Design Group newsletter declares that this is the season for turquoise.
I like that the whole first paragraph is about the ancient Egyptian use of turquoise, because ancient Egypt is what inspired my Hathor swivel ring, which is included in the newsletter. The Hathor is two rings in one because the beautiful turquoise in the center …
… flips over to reveal equally beautiful carnelian.
The matching earrings do the same trick.
Here they are on gorgeous model Tina J.
“Ray of light, light at the end of the tunnel, brighter than the sun — light is [constantly] a symbol of hope and happiness.
It is no surprise, then, that bursts of light are a popular symbol depicted on jewelry. Suns, sunbursts, fireworks and starbursts are a few of the shining (pun intended) examples that make this Style File one to which you will want to pay close attention.”
People tend to underestimate the size of this necklace when they see a photo of it alone. Don’t be fooled! This is a statement piece: a 2 1/2″-wide pendant with over two carats of diamonds. Check it out on Tina J.
Get any of these pieces and you can have summer all year long!
