ELIZABETH LOCKE:

“Elizabeth Locke draws on a lifelong fascination with the antique jewelry of the Etruscans, Greeks and Romans as she creates her own neo-classical hand-made 19k gold jewelry. She selects every stone and designs every piece herself.”*  Today, we have three of her special and coveted pieces:

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K 16mm Hoop Earrings with Pink and Blue Intaglio Glass Enhancers

A magical pair of earrings, and interchangeable, these 19k hammered yellow gold 16mm huggie hoops can be worn on their own or enhanced with the most brilliant pink or deep navy intaglio glass drops.  The glass is carved for the bird-lover with two cranes in each ear.  The rose pink intaglio glass has three small pink sapphires trimmed in Locke’s signature granulation.  The dark blue glass is trimmed with iolite stones.  The hoops on their own retail for $1,425, and the enhancers are $1,950 each.  This set totals $5,325 in retail value, but our price is $3,000.

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K and Smokey Quartz Intaglio Ring, Size 5.75

For the bird-lover, this gorgeous smokey quartz intaglio-carved ring is unique to Elizabeth’s designs, as this piece is a carved stone, instead of the typical glass.  The 20mm quartz cabochon is carved with an eagle carrying an olive branch; a symbol of both power and peace.  The stone is set in a bezel of 19k hammered yellow gold with four granulated “Triads” even spaced throughout the frame.  With box, size 5.75.  This regal ring originally retailed for $4,625.  Our price is $2,500.

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K and Labradorite Ring, Size 6

Labradorite is an luminescent stone, know to be “the Light in the Dark”, as it shines from within and is intended to bring the wearer a metaphysical lighted path forward.  This piece is deeply golden sea green, and bears a magical shine that glows in all directions.  Set in 19k yellow gold, with granulated side trim; the perfect contrast to such a rich stone.  Size 6.  This etheric piece originally retailed $3,500, our price is $1,800.

“Iconic Pomellato jewels are colorful, rebellious, and unconventional. Founded in 1967, Maison Pomellato has come to represent masterful Italian craftsmanship, profound goldsmith savoir-faire, and jubilantly distinctive designs. Balancing the past with the future, tradition with innovation, rigor with experimentation, and sensuality with audacity, Pomellato design sets itself apart in the world of jewelry, as it has no equal.”**

POMELLATO 18K and ‘London Blue’ Topaz ‘Nudo Ring’, Size 6 – SOLD

Sumptuous and deliciously juicy, this dark aqua-colored “London Blue Topaz” is perfectly square, faceted, and raised from its 18k yellow gold setting.  All edges are curved, yet maintain an architectural quality, and the blue stone has a “tiger’s eye” effect as the light moves from top to bottom.  The stone measures 13 x 13 mm and is considered their medium size in the “Nudo Collection”.  The ring fits a size 6.  Originally retailing $3,250, our price is $1,700. SOLD

CARTIER 18K White Gold ‘Love Ring’, Size 6.5

This classic ring is a coveted statement of love ever since its incarnation in the 1970’s.  This piece is comprised of solid 18k white gold, and has 6 signature “screw heads” evenly spaced throughout the infinity band.  In fabulous, near-mint condition, with original case and box.  Size 6.5.  Currently retailing for $1,770, our price is $1,200.  Cartier asks, “How far would you go for love?”

JEWELRY:

ZOE 18k and Rose Cut Diamond Infinity Ring Size 6.5

CLOTHING:

CHANEL Beige and Black Knit Dress Size 2-4

Grab this brand new piece from the super recent 2018 Cruise collection, and you will be ready for any semi-formal summer wedding.  The designers at Chanel have been experts in knit wear for decades, but we are still impressed with the fact that they could make so much texture in this one dress.  They have somehow woven paper fibers into a fine knit cupro material to create a permanently wrinkled effect.  This texture is included in only the tan sections of this mixed floral, geometric mosaic and abstract wave print, making it even more impressive that the black pattern was woven in a completed separate way.  Our favorite detail is in the final touch of the dramatic tie bows along the sleeveless straps; these long tie tails will move with your every step and adds that finishing drama.  Oh, and don’t forget the adorable Owl button on the back top.  French size 36.  Fits like a size 2-4.  Brand new with tags.  Retailed for $2,850.  Priced at $1,000.
