Statement Piece


I have one piece of jewelry that stands head and shoulders above all my others. It’s a gorgeous gold pendant necklace designed by Elsa Peretti in the early 70’s, before she was making jewelry for Tiffany & Co. My uncle knew her from the modeling biz and commissioned her to make it for my aunt and he passed it on to me after she died. I wear it often—it pairs just as easily with jeans and a t-shirt as it does with a little black dress—and it never fails to bring my outfit up a notch. For a similar piece see Tiffany’s bottle necklace.

When I saw The Constellation Cuff I knew I’d found something very, very special. Patterned after a Swiss calendar from the 1900’s, designer Julie Nolan crafted this brushed brass line by using a series of small holes to represent the brightest stars in the constellation for each sign of the zodiac. This one is Aquarius!
