GET THE LOOK…THE KENSINGTON LONDON

From time to time, I love to indulge in an afternoon tea at the Kensington, served on gorgeous tableware by open fires in light-filled ground floor drawing rooms. Atmospherically, this is perhaps one of the best venues in London for afternoon tea! The menu features a great selection of teas and a choice of traditional favourites: delectable pastries, scrumptious scones, and tasty sandwiches.

The Kensington has been one of my favourite hotels in London for a long time. Situated in the heart of Kensington, this delightful hotel is full of charm and character. With its sleek contemporary interiors integrated into gorgeous Victorian architecture, the Kensington exudes timeless glamour.

GET THE LOOK…JEWELLERY LUNCH AND TALK, AJESP SAO PAULO

Sao Paulo is an exhilarating place for a jewellery lover like me. Tatiana Berenguer hosted a jewellery lunch in my honour at Aranda where I met local journalists and fabulous Brazilian bloggers. Even though jewellery is in every Brazilian woman’s DNA, I am the only jewellery blogger they know who focuses solely on jewellery and who has a never-ending love affair with Brazilian jewellery. Who knows perhaps one day I will move to Sao Paulo with my Brazilian fiancé and become a fixture of the jewellery world in Brazil!
During my trip I was invited by Sao Paulo Jewellery Association AJESP to give a talk on “How the digital world is affecting the jewellery market and how jewellers can profit from improving their digital engagement”. It went splendidly and we even have a few testimonials from my talk.

Here is why jewellery designers should embrace social media in order to create desire with beautiful photography to keep us all entertained and excited about jewellery.

MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO SELL

Every post is an opportunity for customers to convert. You have access to new, recent and old customers, and you will be able to interact with all of them. Social media is all about relationship building, and it tends to grow exponentially as your followers tell their friends about your brand.

BRAND RECOGNITION

Every opportunity you have to increase your jewellery visibility is valuable. Social media makes you more accessible for new customers, and makes you more familiar and recognisable for existing customers

BRAND LOYALTY

Customers who follow your brand on social media are more loyal to your brand as they are a part of your story

HIGHER BRAND AUTHORITY

Interacting with your customers regularly is a show of good faith for other customers. The more people that are talking about your brand, the more authoritative your brand will seem

BUILDING TRUST

A higher number of social media followers tends to improve trust and credibility of your jewellery brand, representing social proof.

DECREASED MARKETING COSTS

If you can lend just one hour a day to developing your content and social media strategy, you could start seeing the results of your marketing efforts very soon.

GET THE LOOK…SILVANA E CIA, TRANCOSO BRAZIL

My favourite restaurant in Trancoso is Silvana e Cia, overlooking the charming Quadrado square. It occupies one of the former fisherman’s houses and is hidden under the decorated arms of an ancient tree. Start with the casquinha de siri, shelled crab, followed by the traditional Bahia dish, moqueca made from coconut dendê oil. The Silvana signature caipirinha with mango and passion fruit is delicious.

GET THE LOOK..WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE TO BE A JEWELLERY BLOGGER, IJL 2017

This month, I was invited to give a talk about my jewellery journey at International Jewellery London trade show. IJL is UK’S leading trade event for the international jewellery industry, showcasing the latest creations from over 500 brands. It was fun to be interviewed by Rachael Taylor, freelance jewellery journalist and IJL catwalk Trends Editor. She quizzed me about my life in jewels, dealing with being in demand with brands, what it’s like to document my every move and how to captivate jewellery lovers on social media channels. She is such a sweetheart and I greatly enjoyed the talk! To celebrate my engagement I brought pretty balloons in the shape of engagement rings and gave them away to the audience.

You can watch my talk at GEMOLOGUE YouTube channel. Read my interview on IJL website about behind the scenes of running a jewellery bog.

Late Summer Update from Gem Gossip

Gem Gossip

I’ve been getting ready for a big trunk show that I’m doing up in Boston on September 7th at M. Flynn, so all the new acquisitions are killing me. So many great pieces I want to keep for myself! These three are my current favorites and I think they go SO WELL together.

Gem Gossip

I love acquiring pieces that I’m completely obsessed with and love more and more each day–this medallion is certainly one of them! I got it from Oakgem at the show in Las Vegas this year. It is 18k yellow gold and the blue gemstone is sodalite. To my surprise, the zodiac featured is Virgo (I didn’t know it when I first got it) which is my zodiac, so it makes it even more special. Thanks to my Instagram followers who helped me figure out which zodiac it was.

Untitled Untitled

I guess I’ve been unaware how drawn I am to spheres lately. My latest purchase was this moon lamp that I can’t get enough of–I bought it from The Apollo Box, which has some really unique gift items on their site. The moon is apparently made using 3D print technology with eco-friendly materials. The photo on the right is from Instagram account @theearthsgems and I love everything about it! Look at all the variety of minerals and gems each are made of!

Gem Gossip

I had the pleasure of viewing a brand new jewelry line called Oli and Tess, a new venture for Polly Wheatley who started designing jewelry after 15 years in the fashion industry. She received a Victorian opal ring from her husband as a gift, which sparked her love for opals. After having a daughter, she wanted to design an opal ring to celebrate her birth, which is how her line indirectly began. Her work has an heirloom quality and feel, using all hand-selected opals.

Gem Gossip

We know how much I’m obsessed with Egyptian Revival jewelry, so this turquoise scarab collection was an awesome find! TBH it was a large pendant and one bracelet–I had my jeweler turn the bracelet into ten different pendants and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! They will be offered for sale over on @shopGEMGOSSIP very soon!

Untitled Gem Gossip

Some treasures I brought back from my trip to Boston in the left photo–I added a carved Jade Buddha to my charm necklace from Long’s Jewelers and these 14k yellow gold Tuck studs from e scott originals. The photo on the right is from last week at the county fair. I ate way too much fried foods (got super sick actually) and played some games. The games and the baby goats are my favorite part of the fair. Worst part of the fair: ruining your favorite sneakers and getting in the way so you end up being the reason why a sheep escapes. lol

Gem Gossip

Some of my newest acquisitions–this Victorian black enamel ring (I think the top piece is Victorian and it was made into a ring) was a really unique find. I’m still adjusting to it and might sell it but I don’t know yet! Sometimes pieces speak to you right away, other times you have to grow to love them. I also got this ’03 date ring from Rusted Anchor Antiques and I think it pair awesome with my big diamond band and gold Saxon chain ring from Walters Faith.

Gem Gossip

More favorites from my personal collection — two pieces I want to talk about here: the 9k yellow gold Pacman hoop earrings by Ellie Air Jewellery and the letter D Vadabet charm set with a diamond from Vada Jewelry. Loving these two pieces so much right now.

Untitled Untitled

I was working hard one day and that sometimes forces me to “disrobe” my jewelry, which is what I did. The pile of rings sitting in my windowsill against the sunlight were perfect in that moment, I had to capture it in a photo. The 1917 date ring was a cool find from Louison Rare & Fine when Angela had a 50% off sale. Yes, that’s why it is important to follow everyone closely on Instagram because you never know when someone is going to have an insane sale.

The photo on the right was snapped in the car on the way back from Kentucky after a day full of antiquing. I somehow created a new collection (not that I need to collect anymore things) which consists of little porcelain dogs. I can’t explain how the collection is not just any porcelain dog–they have to look somewhat cute/creepy in the strangest way possible. It’s a very personal collection lol. The date ring I’m wearing here is from Eddie & Rose and it may be one of my favorite date rings in my collection.

Gem Gossip

Latest and greatest ear stack I’ve got going on, here’s what it consists of: Paige Novick ear cuff, tiny huggie hoop from Stacy Nolan Jewelry, Paige Novick‘s newest creation from her Powerful Pretty Things collection the Prism Suspender earring worn upwards, Pacman hoops from Ellie Air Jewellery. My perfect summer ear stack!!

Gem Gossip

Seriously might be my favorite piece in my entire collection–I find it so rewarding to collect something for several years before you can finally piece it all together and make something of it. That’s exactly what my figa collection is; years of collecting and one day randomly putting it together with my gold collar from Arrow & Anchor Antiques. These things were meant for each other. And I highly recommend getting a solid gold, stiff collar necklace for your charm collection. It will change the way you wear charms!

Untitled Untitled

Here’s a fun project I did over the summer: I took these three near and dear pieces that I hardly ever wear and mashed them together to form a giant long stick pendant. I actually am obsessed with it beyond words. Each is special to me, but the tanzanite pendant is most special of all. It was the first piece of jewelry I ever bought for myself…and I was in 7th grade! I learned about Tanzanite from the home shopping channels and fell in love with the stone. I went to the one and only jewelry store in my hometown mall and found this special pendant–it was $150. That was SO much money to me back when I was 13 years old. I put it on layaway and would do chores around the house and babysit. Eventually I earned enough to buy it and I wore it all the time.

Gem Gossip

This is just another styled look from over the summer–a jewelry look that I really liked paired with an off-the-shoulder top that I really love also. I think I’ve already gone over almost every piece that is pictured here, but if you’re wondering about something in particular, let me know!

GET THE LOOK…PERFUME – A SENSORY JOURNEY, SOMERSET HOUSE

At the private perfume workshop at Experimental Perfume Club, I learned that scent is a story. Just like a story, it has a beginning, middle and end. Just like a story, the beginning must draw you in with impact. The middle must have imagination and emotion; at the end must stay with you long after you’ve walked away.  My sensory journey through contemporary scent at Perfume Exhibition in Somerset House inspired me to create my own “GEM” perfume,  but also taught me that perfume is becoming a different kind of cultural experience; rather than being like a casual accessory, it is a key to express personality, mood, past and aspirations. Similar to jewellery, perfume takes on narrative, behaving less like an accessory. This multi-sensory exhibition runs until 23 September and features ten extraordinary perfumes and their pioneering creators, who have radically changed our perceptions of fragrance over the last 20 years! This exhibition will take you on a journey through a series of rooms designed to reflect the inspirations of the scents, from the Moroccan desert, a Catholic confessional, a water theme park to a lover’s boudoir. My favourite room is the scent of Paris in spring when lilacs bloom, an abstract interpreation of traditional floral scent. Made for Frederic Malle, the first perfume house to credit the perfumer on the bottle.

Perfume – A Sensory Journey, Somerset House until 23rd of September.

Gem Gossip Visits e. scott originals in Boston, MA

E Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem GossipE Scott Originals | Gem Gossip

Minutes outside of Boston, in a town called Somerville, e. scott originals is a jewelry shop and studio where owner and maker Emily Scott Surette and her sidekick Mayble (an adorable Boston Terrier) make dreams come true. For Emily, this space is perfect in every way possible–it fosters her love for interacting with customers and clients, the studio provides endless moments to create, and Mayble gets to greet everyone as they walk through the door! That’s exactly what the dog did when I entered the shop, wonderfully sweaty from the heat wave that followed us up to Boston from Tennessee. I immediately fell in love with the layout and how Emily has decorated e. scott originals. She has incorporated some antique furnishings and decor into the jewelry displays, with some gold frames and mirrors…even an antique chandelier.

There are a few things that make e. scott originals tick, and working with clients one-on-one, making custom pieces from a very personable interaction, is at the top of the list. Emily loves creating new heirlooms from old, passed down jewelry, diamonds and gemstones. She also uses mainly reclaimed, anitque diamonds and recycled metals within all her designs, which we all can appreciate. Custom engagement rings are a big part of what she does, especially with clients who want something local, made by hand and feel like they are a part of the creation process. Emily’s warm personality and welcoming demeanor is just what the jewelry-creating process needs, not to mention her skills and expertise.

Another large part of what e. scott originals does and creates is their own line of highly wearable jewelry. Items that can easily fit with your every day look, like layer-ready necklaces, unique and fashionable earrings and fun gemstone rings. These fill the shelves and cabinet cases of the store and are ready for purchase. They are also ready for other stores, as Emily is looking to expand her wholesale market. Her target audience is ideal for any self-purchasing woman, gift-giving ease, and the price points are great. I did a little self-purchasing myself when I was there–after trying on the long Tuck studs in 14k yellow gold, I loved the look of them and how they could be worn stacked with other earrings I already own. I had to have them!

Before I left, Emily showed me an “inner circle” box that is presented to every couple who purchases an engagement ring/wedding bands from e. scott originals. The box features local businesses that come highly recommended to help easily plan your wedding day. Anything from cake makers, to photographers, and everything in between. You can see the full list here — I love this idea and I feel it shows what kind of business Emily is running: one full of gratitude, creativity and soul! And in case you’re wondering, she is an awesome recommender, as her restaurant suggestions were top notch!

Check out some of my favorite pieces below that you can shop from home:

High Jewelry Made a Big Impact at Paris Couture Week

giambattistavallipic6giambattistavallipic7 giambattistavallipic9 giambattistavallipic10

Haute couture is one-of-a-kind creations crafted from the finest materials by skilled artisans using century-old techniques. Haute couture had humble beginnings. In 1858, an English couturier, Charles Frederick Worth, established the first haute couture house in Paris championing exclusive luxury fashion for the upper-class woman and coining the term “fashion designer” in lieu of the basic dressmaker. Today, haute couture is still synonymous with high-quality materials and workmanship. And when haute couture meets haute joaillerie (high jewelry), the result is transformative! The jewelry becomes an extension of the designer’s vision for his or her collection creating a complete story – one that is truly a work of art!

giambattistavallipic5 giambattistavallipic4 giambattistavallipic3 giambattistavallipic1

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI AND ELEUTERI:

Giambattista Valli accessorized his haute couture collection, comprising of ethereal tulle gowns, draped silk chiffon dresses and embellished minis with exquisite vintage jewels from Eleuteri. The jewels focused mainly on bracelets featuring a glorious 1950s French amethyst and turquoise piece as well as a intricate jade and gold design from David Webb and several Tubogas wristwatches from Bulgari.

GUO PEI AND CHOPARD:

The Chinese designer made a name for herself when she dressed singer Rihanna in yellow couture for the MET’s “China through the Looking Glass” gala and red carpet. For her haute couture collection, she collaborated with Chopard paying homage to the golden era of haute couture and Hollywood icons of the 50s. The results were a perfect fusion of Chinese and Western cultures, high fashion and exquisite jewels.

The deep jewel toned hues of Pei’s dresses paired effortlessly with Chopard’s the Silk Road collection, which featured an emerald bib necklace, diamond and pearl drop earrings and an amethyst pendant necklace. The Chopard jewels complemented the opulence and extravagance of Pei’s couture collection perfectly.
