Statement jewelry is a trend with serious staying power. My love affair with huge, bold pieces started when I was little and would dig through my late grandmother's costume jewelry. Somehow I got my hands on two of her jewelry pouches and I remember thinking that every piece was just magical. The colors, the sparkle. It was love at first sight. The love affair really took off when I came face to face with a Roberta Freymann bibb necklace and has continued with the likes of Roarke and Dannijo. Because I don't love wearing pieces that everyone else is wearing, I am always on the lookout for new designers. Enter Doloris Petunia, started by Courtney Prince who created these pieces for herself when she couldn't find what she was envisioning in the jewelry market. And bonus for you brides, she does the most beautiful pieces for your wedding day and is happy to create something custom. Please observe the gorgeousness that is work of the LA based jeweler, below. Sparkle? Check. One of a kind? Check. Statement? CHECK.
If you're like me, you are now dying for something from her collection. Particularly that necklace. You know, the only one in this post. The gorgeous white one. You can't miss it. It's insane. I'm dropping hints.
