Wendy Brandes Amethyst Marie Antoinette Earrings for February

Fri, 15 Feb 2013
By Erika Winters

Need a stunning dose of royal purple this February? Wendy Brandes' Marie Antoinette earrings deliver with the pomp and complexity of one of the most fashionable and ill-fated monarchs in history. Ample custom-cut amethysts--each over 25 carats--wrapped in vines of pavé-set tsavorite garnets evoke the French monarchy's grip on the young queen.

2013 Grammy Awards Jewelry Highlights: Millions in Diamonds, Statement Earrings

Mon, 11 Feb 2013
By Erika Winters

The gowns were tame--for the most part--but celebrities adorned themselves with pomp at the 2013 Grammy Awards. While the show provides a mixed bag of fashion, you can count on bold jewelry, whether it's a full-blown-bling affair or purposeful jewels that hold their own.

Our favorites included statement earrings worn by Miranda Lambert and Jessica Biel. And how could we ignore the millions worth of diamonds worn by Jennifer Lopez and Carrie Underwood? Beyoncé was all geometry with her black and white ensemble, but we had our eyes on what appeared to be a giant shield-shaped (slice or rose-cut) diamond ring by Lorraine Schwartz.
