Gift Idea: Etro Fragrances

Etro is one of Italy’s leading luxury fashion houses. Founded in 1968 by Gimmo Etro, the brand is very much a family enterprise and to this day remains a leader in the fashion industry in terms of both quality and cutting-edge style.

In the late 1980s Etro expanded by introducing its line of perfumes. These fragrances are luxurious, sophisticated and unisex(!), making them the perfect gift for anyone on your list this holiday season. Plus, how fabulous will it be for the lucky receiver to say they own something by Etro?!

Just in: Xenia Mara HUGE Collection

Xenia visited us today and brought the largest collection of jewels she has ever dropped off. They are going to be great gifts this season.

One of my favorite styles by Xenia, her “goddess” layers of vintage chain. Everyone needs one of these!

I will feature more pieces on the blog in outfit posts throughout the month.

Bring me your diamonds!

Hitchcock Madrona “Diamond Dot” necklace with 18 carat gold bezel and oxidized sterling silver chain.

Many of our clients have random diamonds from, say, a grandmother’s brooch or a great-grandfather’s masonic ring. Or, there are the diamonds from (let’s be honest) a previous marriage. But, what to do with this jewelry that is never going to be worn in its current state? I mean, it is a shame to let a diamond languish in a drawer! It wants a new life – it wants to be worn!!! I noticed that old jewelery was never a huge priority or something that my clients wanted to sink money into. Therefore, I wanted to come up with a design that was economical, modern, young, and above all else, wearable. Thus, the Hitchcock Madrona “Diamond Dot Necklace” was born. I am desperately trying to find a diamond for myself – I love this design! It doesn’t matter the quality of the diamond. Every necklace that we have made has looked wonderful in this simple bezel. I can do a gold chain or a sterling silver chain. I especially love the color combination of diamond, yellow gold and blackened chain. I think it is a really unconventional and edgy way to wear “fine” jewelry.


So, dig around your jewelry box and BRING ME YOUR DIAMONDS! The cost is nominal compared to other custom options and you will wear this everyday. I love it alone or even layered with fashion jewelry.
Dustin and I are getting ready for our annual spring buying trip to New York.  We leave on Sunday and will be gone until Thursday night.  Kate will be in the store to assist you.

XOXO
