If you’re a fan of Gossip Girl or have turned the pages of a major magazine in the past year, you’ve seen the brilliant jewelry of Gemma Redux. The brainchild of Rachel Dooley, she started making the jewelry while she was studying for the bar exam and after buyers got a look at the amazing pieces, she found a whole new way to put that brilliant mind to use. This amazing jewelry label is quite the celebrity staple: Cameron Diaz , Blake Lively, Jessica Alba and countless other celebrities are all about Rachel’s inspired designs from vintage and new metals, petrified wood, and brilliant geodes and gemstones.
I’ve been a fan for a while and covered the line for Shefinds last year, so when I got an opportunity to meet Rachel and view the collection in person at Crystal Intermezzo (the upscale Accessories Show in NYC), I jumped at the chance to snap some photos and show you exactly why every woman needs to own at least one piece of Gemma Redux jewelry. The necklace at the top is an example of one of the stunning pieces for fall. Drool-worthy, isn’t it?
This necklace took my breath away. It’s called the “Carolyn” necklace ($444) and it’s made with rock crystal surrounded by mixed metals. The ultimate mixture of rough and refined, it’s a serious style statement and quite the investment piece.
