Star Power

Oh, the star. This celestial symbol is one of the perennial favorite motifs of the jewelry world. And it doesn’t elicit the same polarized response in jewelry lovers as, say, the heart. Seriously, some women are really, really against heart shaped jewelry.

But the star seems to nab mostly positive feedback. It’s more timeless – a woman can wear a star piece from adolescence (or childhood, whenever she started wearing fine jewelry) without it looking cheesy or juvenile. It’s a favorite among designers (you’ll see a Chanel piece below.) And it’s found in nature – not just in the sky, but in the sea. And as a South Florida native, I love me some starfish jewelry!

So, today let’s let the stars have the spotlight they rightfully deserve.
