Studs of the day

April 18, 2012

Whimsical tiny diamond studs mounted bottoms up for something a lil' different. $220 by Blanca Monros Gomez at Erica Weiner Jewelry

Vanessa- our fragrance columnist -doubles as a jewelry buff and sent over these pretty studs for me to drool over.

The creative genius work of Barcelona-born jewelry artist Blanca Monros Gomez whose handmade collections tend to take inspiration from nature. Now living in Brooklyn, her work has that romantic touch of fairy-esque lightness and simplicity- she’ll use recycled gold to make bands and jewels for encrusting them.

Today’s finding is a neat take on an old idea: in these studs, the brownish-grey champagne diamonds are cut as you’d expect but mounted with the pointy side out so you’ll get a different play off light than you’re typical flat-faced mount. How novel and very charming.
