I am always on the look out for interesting jewelry, ever since all of my real jewelry was stolen several years ago. I literally had two pairs of earrings, two rings and a necklace for several years, because I was reluctant to spend any money at all on new jewelry. But in the last several months, I’ve been interested in looking at jewelry again, but I am going solely for interesting pieces that don’t cost the earth.
My friends at Halcyon House Antiques, who have the most marvelous taste, have really gotten me to take another look at jewelry. I wrote about their terrific collection from Angela Caputi a few months ago.
I just love Halcyon House’s collection of intaglio and relief jewelry. It’s such a classic look, and it will never go out of style.I seriously love this bracelet with its combination of the tortoise-shell resin links, combined with the gold links, plus the round relief and the small faceted stone charm.
Some of the most fun pieces came into the shop over the past few days, and it’s a knock-out! I love a good quatrefoil and this necklace in lapis and mother-of-pearl is just brilliant, as are the coordinating earrings.
