New love: Saundra Messinger
I’d like to thank Santa. Or more appropriately, my husband, Tracy. And also David, owner of beloved Chicago boutique, Hazel. Here’s what I got for Christmas…
I love jewelry. All kinds — silver, gold, vintage, costume, fine, big, small, necklaces, bracelets, rings. I think it might come from my father. He used to buy my mother jewelry for every occasion. It got to a point where she had to ask him to stop buying her jewelry because she couldn’t wear it all. My parents were married for 53 years, so she really wasn’t exaggerating — she amassed quite a bit over the years. Anyway, suffice it to say that I always check out the jewels when I am shopping. Recently, when I was in Hazel, David turned me on to yet another new designer: Saundra Messinger. Similar in sensibility to lines like Me & Ro, Saundra’s pieces are classic, yet modern; delicate, yet packed with style.
The matte, uneven finish and artfully-placed tiny diamonds provide just the right amount of shine.
And she gets a little chunkier, too. I’ll be hoping for even bigger pieces in the future!
Let’s face it, diamonds are a girl’s best friend…
