I am so excited to be launching another collection with one of my dear, talented friends, Robyn Rhodes. She has been designing jewelry for well over a decade and has outfitted celebrities, shared her jewels on the big screen, and even styles Bachelorette after Bachelorette with her iconic jewels (the current Bachelorette has been wearing her jewels!)
With this collection, I wanted pieces that could be worn day to day. I know a lot of you are similar to me in that you like pieces that are wearable with your busy, on-the-go lives, but you still want to make a subtle statement. Bonus? Each of these stones have amazing properties to them!
Here are the stones included in the collections that I am absolutely in love with:
Pink Opal: Their healing properties have a gentle frequency that help to calm and soothe your emotional body, clearing and calming the heart to bring a sense of love, peace and hope.
Black Onyx: Absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. Black Onyx aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief.
Blue Chalcedony: Great for promoting a sense of peace and joy. As a member of the Quartz family, Chalecdony carries similar properties like cleansing, balancing and healing. Chalcedony helps to relieve negative emotions and bring a greater sense of happiness.
Labradorite: This is a stone of transformation and is useful through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It can balance and protect the aura, raises consciousness and has a tendency to ground spiritual energies. It is great for strengthening intuition and promoting psychic abilities.
Swarovski Crystal: Brings positive energy, hope, joy, good luck, and diffuses negative energy.
The Curran Bracelet: This bracelet features the Blue Chalcedony in the photos but is also available in Black Onyx and Pink Opal. You can also have it made in gold and silver! I love that it is a wrap bracelet but completely adjustable, which makes it easy to get on and off. My Mom’s maiden name is Curran, which was the inspiration behind the the naming of it! There are so many amazing people on the Curran side of my family-I am so lucky!
The Betsy Ring: Another adjustable ring that features Blue Chalcedony. It is also adjustable like the matching bracelet! Wear it together or separately-either way it makes a statement while being a great, everyday ring! I named this ring after my best friend (and cousin) Betsy! We are only a month and eight days apart I age, and grew up only 10 minutes from each other. We talk every day and frequently have 2 hour phone conversations about anything and everything. I love her so much!
Georgianna Earrings: These Swarovski Crystal earrings are a favorite of mine! I love that they are more than a simple post earring but are a great, neutral pair that can be worn with so much! I was drawn to this particular style because it is so different! These are named after my Mother in Law Georgi, who I love so much and has always been so supportive of both Ryan and myself!
Helen Necklace: I love this Y necklace-so delicate! This is available in The top chain measures 18 inches and the drop measures 1.5 inches. You can get this necklace in silver or gold with the choice of Black Onyx, Pink Opal or Blue Chalcedony! This beautiful necklace is named after my wonderful grandmother, who we call Dede. I like to think she is a reason I’ve grown to love fashion so much!
Margaret Earrings: I instantly fell I love with the idea of a threader earring with the teardrop stone. I love that you can change the length of them by threading them through your ear however much or little you want! These are a great compliment to the Helen necklace, too! The chain itself measures 2 inches long and is available in silver or gold, with the blue, black or pink stone options. Like the Helen Necklace, this is named after my late grandmother Margaret. She was an amazing woman-I have so many memories of her growing up-I think I get a lot of my entrepreneurial spirit from her and my late grandfather!
Susan Bracelet: I love the grayish tone of this wrap bracelet-its such a perfect neutral to wear every day! Like the other wrap bracelet, it is also adjustable making it easy to wear and get on and off! This bracelet is named after my wonderful mother Susan. It’s funny, the older I get the more I feel like I need her! She’s such a special person to me.
Elizabeth Bracelet: I love how simple this chain bracelet is-perfect for stacking and pairing with others! This also matches the York Necklace from my previous collection! Although we don’t have a first name quite picked out yet for Baby Girl Wattenschaidt, we do know her middle name is going to be Elizabeth (after you guessed it-Betsy!).
Nori Snake Ring: This was a last minute add to the collection but I love it! I have been wearing it pretty much every day and I get so many compliments on it! It is adjustable which allows me to wear it on different fingers! Nori is my maiden name (and my grandmother Margaret’s last name), so for obvious reasons this name is important to me!
