Ashlee Simpson's Engagement Ring Is Not Traditional and That's A-OK

Thu, 16 Jan 2014

By Erika Winters

Last Monday on Twitter, Ashlee Simpson announced her engagement to actor Evan Ross--Diana Ross' son--with a picture of her wearing her new engagement ring by Neil Lane. According to People, the ruby and diamond ring was inspired by a vintage piece from Lane's archival collection. Ross and Lane then worked together on a new design with both vintage and contemporary elements.

From People:

“Evan was really, really sweet and he was looking for something beautiful, a unique ring that said everything: love, romance, beauty, character. He didn’t want anything traditional,” Lane says.

Work that Little Digit! 5 Petite Pinky Rings

Wed, 15 Jan 2014

By Erika Winters

If you watched the 2014 Golden Globes, you may have noticed the fabulous pinky rings worn by Amy Adams, Lupita Nyong'o, and Sarah Hyland. We loved that these actresses chose to adorn their little digits with bold pinky rings (You can check them out over at Cheryl Kremkow's fantastic jewelry trends blog.) So while we love a grand pinky ring, we also adore these petite rings--made specifically for the pinky--that are perfect for everyday wear. From David Yurman's pavé to Dezso's pinky cuff ring, here's a little dazzle for your petite fingers!

Golden Globes 2014 Jewelry Favorites

Mon, 13 Jan 2014

By Erika Winters

If you wanted to see celebrities dripping in jewels at last night's 71st annual Golden Globe Awards, unfortunately it didn't happen. The jewelry at the 2014 Golden Globes was a little more restrained than in previous years (think diamond studs, bare necks, and small rivière necklaces), but there were several standout pieces on the red carpet that we loved. Our favorites included the ensemble of Golden Globe winner Amy Adams, who wore jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz.
