The unusually warm March we’re having on the East Coast has us longing to be lying by the pool instead of sitting in the office. Unfortunately that’s not really an option, so looking at these pretty blue jewels by Raquelle Bianco will have to be enough. The sterling silver pieces have been dipped in turquoise and aquamarine enamels and adorned with gem stones for an aquatic-inspired shimmer. Find a list of online stockists at
ellelauri_2012_thumb.jpgIf you’re dying to wear this spring’s neon and pastel trends (who isn’t?) then look no further than Ellelauri. This up-and-coming brand has so many must-have pieces for the season, and the prices ($98 to $240) won’t shock your system. Here are just a few of our favorites - head over to to shop. 


Artemis Quibble is a Brooklyn-based luxury leather accessories line inspired by history. Designer Jason Ross incorporates antique elements and found objects into his collection - hanging them on his wall until inspiration strikes and he turns them into something stylish. The result is a line of bags, belts, and other add-ons that look like you pulled them straight from a 16th century museum. These pieces align perfectly with today’s vintage-inspired trend.

Language Jewelry is designed by Geeta Patel, a British-born Indian designer who is now based in northern New Jersey. Patel studied fashion at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, with her MA collection earning her sponsorship from the British Fashion Council. She went on to work for designers like Hussein Chalayan, Donna Karan, and Narcisco Rodriguez before launching her own line in spring 2011. The collection has a modern vibe with an aesthetic that is both on-trend yet surprisingly simple. We love the mixed materials and themes of this cuff, which is on sale in Patel’s Etsy shop for $66.
