Insider's Obsessions, JewelrySmith + Mara

diamond%20suspender%20-%20on%20earI’m excited to share my latest obsession, a super edgy and creative jewelry line which has burst in and changed the landscape of the accessories scene. Smith + Mara, which is based out of LA, marries punk rock with fine jewelry. The unique shapes really caught my eye at first, making a statement piece out of every necklace, ring, and bracelet. I was swept away by the ingenuity, beauty, and edginess of the suspender earring in particular. I love how it takes the idea of the earring out of the box, and still maintains the quality and materials for high-end jewelry. The earring is lightweight and comfortable to wear, and the delicate size retains femininity while standing out in the crowd. It contours perfectly to a sensual part of the ear that is underrated, in my opinion. I even fell asleep with it on, and didn’t notice until I was pleasantly surprised to look in the mirror the next morning! The diamonds are well- set, so I don’t have to worry about losing one (Mara comes from a line of experienced jewelers). The pouch that delivers the jewelry is perfect for travel, with a hidden magnetic closure and compartments for two pieces. With Smith + Mara jewelry you’ll be in the know, channeling the likes of Gigi Hadid, Miranda Kerr, Anna Kendrick and Sophia Bush who are already fans.

valentines day gift jewelryI recently read that technology might be killing the jewelry industry, specifically the brick-and-mortar fine jewelry establishments. This was somewhat depressing because I live in the core of the Los Angeles jewelry district, but I won’t take you down that road. Instead, I want to focus on the closing paragraph of the article, where a friend of the writer’s elected NOT to buy his graphic designer girlfriend diamond earrings as a gift because she couldn’t “use the earrings to make her artwork.”

What!? Who doesn’t want diamond earrings?!?

I write this post because on behalf of all the people out there who are tired of buying “junk jewelry” only to watch it fall apart one season later, we want better bling! READ MORE
