Last week I attended the Summer/Fall 2013 jewelry preview event of Kensie, held at the company’s beautiful showroom in New York City. I believe a woman’s outfit is never complete with at least one accessory, so I was excited to see the new pieces, which will be available at Macy’s later this year. Whether your style is boho chic, low-key or elegant, there is something for everyone in this collection. The Summer/Fall line is an eclectic mix of colorful statement pieces and metallic jewelry, some of which feature fun geometric shapes.
I am in love with the bangle sets in the “Shine Like Stars” collection, which are engraved with inspirational words (seen below) and will make great gifts for upcoming graduations, birthdays, and other special occasions.

My favorite accessories in the whole room were from the Rooftop Party Gasoline collection. The see-through, lace-like architectural design of the necklaces, earrings and braceltes creates a unique effect and is absoutely stunning.

In the past I’ve written about Maya Brenner Designs, a high-end jewelry collection favorited by some of the most hottest celebrities. This week the jewelry company is kicking off 2013 by having a celestial sale – 40% off all zodiac necklaces and birthstone rings through Jan. 14. Since the year has just begun, you can buy a special zodiac accessory for someone you know and hold onto it until their birthday. Or, just grab one for yourself – at 40% off why not?
This weekend I had the opportunity to stop by Bloomingdales in SoHo to check out the Black and Gold Jewelry Collection of Brooklyn-based designer Barbara Campbell.
Whether your style is edgy, chic, or sophisticated, there is something in this collection for you, which consists of handmade jewelry of vintage buttons, mixed-metal, leather, gold-filled and semi-precious stone.
Launched in fall 2007, each piece is carefully hand-crafted by Campbell, who became inspired to start producing her own line after her mother-in-law handed her natural rocks from the beaches of Montauk, and encouraged her to start designing.
Most noteworthy, nothing in the jewelry line is mass-produced, so you can be rest-assured that you will be the owner of a one-of-a-kind piece.

Yesterday I attended an event to preview the latest collection by jewelry designer Ippolita. Launched in 1999, her fine jewelry collection consists of beautiful handcrafted bangles, necklaces, rings, bracelets and more, all of which evoke the flair of her native Italy. There’s something for everyone in the Ippolita collection from simple, understated pieces, to glamorous jewelry that will make sure you stand out in a crowd.
You can find the Ippolita collection online, as well as in fine department stores and luxury retailers nationwide.
