Today’s fashion innovation and focus is revolving around one piece of jewelry: the bracelet. It’s where you see stacking, textures, materials, and fresh looks. You can stick with what you know in earrings and necklaces if you only branch out on the wrist.
The most helpful question to start with is: what kind of look am I going for today? Casual, formal, professional, or fashionable? Once you decide that, you can tailor your bracelets to make the look.
Casual: A casual look should look effortless, comfortable, and relaxed. This look typically means less on the wris... Continue Reading

Hello Summer! I will be at QVC this coming Saturday, June 29th, at 1am with fresh new looks as well as bringing back some sold out items.

If you already own the blue earrings, you can check out the sculpted matching pendant that is new.

I would like to take a moment and thank everyone for tuning in to our first JAI John Hardy show this past Thursday, May 30th. As you can imagine, a lot of our heart and soul goes into the entire process of bringing an inspiration to life.
The creative process begins nearly a year before each collection is launched, which includes sharing inspirations with our artisan’s, sourcing beautiful gemstones, and presenting our designs to the teams at QVC. Just like a great recipe, it takes time to perfect each collection. Scale, composition, harmony, and beautiful gemstones are... Continue Reading

At Honora, we're often asked how we come up with all of the ideas for our pearl jewelry. At many companies there’s a single designer or design team. We're fortunate to be blessed with both, but one of the best things about Honora is that anyone and everyone at the company is encouraged to share his or her ideas.
Many of our most popular designs come from Joel, Ralph, Jennie, Julie and the rest of our design team, but there isn't a day that goes by where an inspired idea comes from an unexpected member of the Honora family. We're surrounded by pearls at all times and that tends to get th... Continue Reading

I first learned of Kenneth Jay Lane when I was a salesman at one of NY’s most prestigious and expensive luxury retailers.
My biggest and most fashionable clients always asked me to let them know when the next Kenneth Jay Lane collection was due to arrive in the store. Being new to the fashion business, I wanted to know why so many people were interested in this particular designer, so I researched all I could about Mr. Lane. The information I found was absolutely incredible! I quickly came to realize what a legendary impact he had in the world of fashion jewelry. The researc... Continue Reading
