For my new jewelry collection, I was inspired by the subtle sense of luxury that fall brings, with its cool temperatures, luscious fabrics, and rich colors. I wanted to create pieces that were special but could be worn every day—things you’d feel just as gorgeous in at parties, at work, and at casual weekend events. And of course I made sure to include items that both you and your wallet would love giving as holiday gifts!
To realize my vision, I put together a collection of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets made with lustrous pearls and sparkly cubic zirconia, ranging from statement pieces to delicate, dainty ones. Many are under $50—great for presents.
My mom was 18 when she left Romania for Israel. Here she is at age 86 during a family Thanksgiving celebration last year in Bellevue, Washington, where she lives. (She's wearing vintage Ruth Barzel jewelry, of course.)
