JewelryChampagne Quartz and Zapphire

Doing a little last minute shopping for your New Year wardrobe?  One tip that I’ve found useful is to splurge a little on  a fab accessory instead of a fab dress- because face it- once your New Year’s dress makes it onto Facebook pictures, you won’t be so keen on wearing it again for another special event.  The right jewel, however, is a whole different story as it can accessorize anything from jeans and a cashmere sweater to a very LBD.

This year my pick for the holiday is a pair of gorgeous champagne quartz  earrings that I recently discovered from new designer Zapphire Jewelry. Though the brand just launched last month, the collection of beautifully ornate yet surprisingly accessible pieces have already made it onto my 2010 list of must-haves.  The jewelry are all handmade out of semi-precious stones and combine traditional inspiration with contemporary form. These earrings are made of sterling silver with 22k gold plating, studded with champagne quartz and CZ- and rings up at an affordable $215.

I’m excited to see what else comes of this brand in the next year.  Visit their website to peruse the collection and place orders.
