Powerhaus, Ishikawa and more jewelry love.

What is it about jewelry that makes you compulsively buy it and then never wear it? I've been collecting more rings and bracelets lately buy I only ever leave the house with one subtle piece at a time (if any). My favourite piece is an antique signet ring given to me by my grandmother. It's really a fascinating thing. It's supposed to act as a wax seal and has little gear-like details incorporated into the design. The symbolism baffles me.



Everything other than that one piece has been collecting dust. But that doesn't stop me from oggling these beauties byMari Isikawa and Powerhaus. The first red rope and pearl necklace is so unexpectedly beautiful. It reminds me of coral.







Edit: Random question but, does anyone else check if something was posted on Style Bubble before they make a post? Or is that just me? She's so sharp, that Susie.

The ring your grandmother gave you is so unique and beautiful.
I particulary love the powerhaus pearl necklace, pearls are so elegantly beautiful.

I love the first ring and the rope-like necklaces in the second to last picture. These are really cool. And yes, Susie has posted on everything, so I don't bother checking.

These pieces are amazing. I'm the same way -- I have tons of cool stuff, but rarely wear more than a watch.
