Design of the Times: Robin Haley


Southern California native Robin Haley has been making jewelry for over 35 years, and it all started with an apprenticeship in Fine Gold Jewelry upon graduation from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise. Three years after her apprenticeship, she started her own business, and within five years she was selling her works to Nordstrom, Fred Segel, Warner Brothers’ and Bubank Studios. Today, she and her team can be found in Nashville, Tennessee, where all of the jewelry is constructed by hand – custom and made-to-order for each customer – with recycled metals, conflict-free gemstones and African Glass Beads that…

Award Jewels


Though the official start of awards season is November, the past few months have seen their fair share of special events. From late summer’s MTV Video Music Awards (or simply VMAs) to the recent People’s Choice Awards, we’ve found plenty of reasons to tune in with popcorn and champagne at hand. For jewelry lovers like us, awards shows provide the perfect opportunity to catch a glimpse of some seriously rocking jewels on stars all gussied up for a glam evening out.

But natural they are, which makes the bicolor (or tricolor, or more!) gemstone all the more miraculous. It depends on the type of gemstone, which determines…

Luxury Trends: Fall 2018


It may be fun to follow—and even to participate in—any number of jewelry trends. Not too long ago, we were donning ear climbers and those hand bracelet creations that ran the length of wrist to fingertip. For the most part, demand for those items has waned, though I fully expect they’ll ride a wave back in again sometime soon. When it comes to high-end jewelry, delving too far into a passing (or even cyclical) trend can be high-risk. That’s not to be said it can’t be done and done well (it happens all the time), but for the average customer,…
