Fashion-able: Put a ring on it

With the crisp breeze in the air, we’re breaking out our sweaters and stocking up on Joe Fresh tights. While we’re very excited about reintroducing our fall garb into the clothing rotation, we’re also always on the hunt for new jewels. Below are some pieces we’re coveting this fall.

To start, this season is going to continue to show our upper fingers some love with the ubiquitous knuckle ring. From a great, simple band (seen below left from Jacflash) to something with a little flare (like the chevron ring on the right from Etsy), a good quality ring you can mould to your finger + a fun manicure are perfect for the fall season. 

Speaking of chevron shapes, this Dominic Jones ring is kinda superhero, kinda geometric and hella awesome.

For when you want to spend a couple more dollars, this white topaz ring from Montreal-based Anzie is pretty perfect on it’s own, or stacked with other pieces. 

And for the times you want to adorn your hands with some straight up bling – weddings, cocktail parties or even everyday wear, we like this dazzling Erickson Beamon 22-karat gold-plated ring with green Swarovski crystals. BAM.

Back to more delicate rings: Toronto-based Lockett Jewels always has cute, fun pieces to choose from – and the best part is, her pieces are made to order so you can give exact style, size and material requirements. (psst: she also does custom necklaces & bracelets)

Another designer we love is Verameat. With Certain pieces available at Rac Boutique, the line has styles like Vampire Crown and Feather, where you can also choose the material you’d prefer, from brass to 14K gold. LOVE. 

 Buy yourself something pretty, YOLO. 

Fashion-able: Toronto-based jewellery designers

With spring in the air and more skin-bearing outfits being worn on the regular, we think it’s the perfect time to showcase the jewels we’ve been coveting all winter. From dainty rings to bold statement necklaces, these are a few of our favourite pieces and collections, all by amazing Canadian designers.

Chloe Come Parris
Since checking out their collection at World MasterCard Fashion Week, we’ve been in lust with their gorgeous jewels. A mix of custom hardware combined with high quality stones makes every CCP piece enviable for any occasion.

Fashion forward and trend setting are definitely words we would use to describe this self-taught jewellery designer. Carried in over 100 boutiques and retailers, Jenny Bird’s line has been steadily gaining success worldwide. We are currently loving the combination of wood, gold and bright colours in her new tribal-inspired jewels. These are just a few of the pieces we’re adding to our jewellery boxes this summer:

Michelle Ross
With such unique and intricate designs, you are sure to get compliments every time you wear one of Michelle Ross’ bold pieces. While simple and subtle pieces are available, it’s her chunky, hardware-heavy pieces that keep us going back for more. 

Victoria Yez
We are currently loving the combination of feminine, masculine and a little punk in Alberta-born Victoria Yez’s “bullet collection”. Available at Made You Look, the pearls and dainty chains are a lovely and unexpected contrast to the heavy gold bullet metal, making these jewels truly different.

This simple yet sophisticated handmade jewellery collection is perfect for long, sunshine-y days. Mixing 18K gold, sterling silver, leather, wood, diamonds and semi-precious stones, these jewels are perfect for everyday wear, but can also add a sparkly, elegant touch to any dress.

Maryam Keyhani

Self-trained jewellery designer Maryam Keyhani’s pieces are all works of art. Previously a painter, the Tehran-born, Toronto-raised designer uses a variety of mediums to create her pieces, including feathers, gold chains and unique textiles. Swoon.
