A few weeks before New York Fashion week, I was contacted by a representative from Julie Vos, a New York based jewelry designer, with a company of the same name, who specializes in semi-precious stones and luxe gold settings. Julie Vos offered to send me a few pieces as a way to promote the launch of her new website. Julie’s designs have been featured in magazines such as Marie Claire, Lucky, InStyle, Martha Stewart, and also have been featured on the covers of Oprah Magazine and Real Simple. She has also graced the internet pages of One Kings Lane. Her design aesthetic is one of “wearable luxury” that source semi-precious stones and gold in gorgeous textures and rich colors at a price that makes it easy to grow a collection of fine jewelry.
When I received the offer, I was surprised but pleased and immediately picked out a few pieces (as Christmas presents for some women in my family!). The items arrived in the best packaging: a look book, personalized note, and even a special pouch for the jewels. The pieces themselves are gorgeous, which can easily be attested to with one look at the Julie Vos website. Each piece is made with very high quality stones and plated with gold. The prices were certainly higher than I am used to paying for jewelry as I tend to wear more costume jewelry that I’ve found second hand, but I do splurge on special pieces that will grow my collection. The prices range between $20-$400 with the “Friday Deal” section always having great finds. I promise that as soon as Christmas rolls around, I’ll share what pieces and who received what!
