Best Shops for Fine Jewelry in Dallas

All that glitters isn’t gold—unless you’re going to one of these shops (okay, it could also be platinum too). Whether you’re shopping for a ring to say “will you?” or a piece to commemorate your golden anniversary, these are the stores you should be shopping.

The Silver Soul Jewelry Airstream Trailer is On the Move

Local jewelry designer Molly Sharp lives a rock-and-roll lifestyle. From her long-tressed musician husband and polished-yet-bohemian home in East Dallas to her effortless free-spirited sense of style—everything has a so-cool-you’ll-be-jealous vibe about it. And her new jewelry shop, The Silver Soul, is no different. Shoppers will find the 1966 Safari Airstream Trailer filled with rings inspired by […]

The Akola Project Lays Roots in Deep Ellum

The Akola Project’s flagship store is now open and ready for business in Deep Ellum. The non-profit jewelry company offers four different collections: paper beads, horn, metals, and glass. The pieces are accessibly priced, ranging from $25 to $250, with most falling below $100. The best part? All of the proceeds from these handcrafted pieces benefit the Ugandan women who created them. The jewelry is just as beautiful and vibrant as the story behind it. Color me impressed.

Snakes, Black Diamonds, and Moody Jewels Abound on New Barbed Wire E-Shop

You know I was always swooning walking into Cicada Collection in Snider Plaza. No recognizable designers, no flashy colors; just beautifully made things in subtle color palettes with architectural, head-turning shapes. It was a one-of-a-kind shop. (Well, except for the Sante Fe location, which still stands.) Anyway, it closed, and I was sad to stop being introduced […]

Dezso’s Sara Beltrán on Ocean Inspiration, Creativity in India, and Diamonds. Lots of Diamonds.

Her jewelry’s inspired by the ocean, but we’re not talking about hippie beach gear. No neon anklets or feather pendants. Sara Beltrán’s jewelry line, Deszo (“desire” in Latin), is enchanting but sophisticated. Rose gold rings, necklaces, and cuffs nestle diamonds, emeralds, obsidian, and other exotic stones, with whimsical nods to the sea with shark’s teeth and seashells. The designer, who was hand-picked to participate in Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Incubator program, stopped by Forty Five Ten for a personal appearance and trunk show. I got to sit down with her to talk beauty products, music, and India, where she’s inspired to create new things and is and advised regularly by a shaman and guru. How cool is that? You can find her latest collection (rose gold + emeralds = swoon) at Forty Five Ten.

Q&A with Jewelry Designer Eddie Borgo (Plus, Meet Him Tomorrow!)

Eddie Borgo was making cool jewels for photo shoots before he launched his designs for his masses. Editorially-inspired, he makes collections with rock-and-roll edge: slightly dangerous, totally glamorous (hello, gold five-finger ring draped in a strand of pavé crystals). Additionally, Eddie Borgo’s line is on the affordable side (so I actually knock these rose gold spike earrings off my wish list). Meet the main man and shop his designs tomorrow at Neiman Marcus Downtown from 10 am to 3 pm. In the meantime, get to know him with our quick Q&A. (We too love a minimal wardrobe and vintage Levi’s.)

Nikki Reed on Her 7 For All Mankind Jewelry Collaboration and Her Biggest Inspiration

I wasn’t able to make the private event at NorthPark this week to celebrate the launch of Mattlin Era by Nikki Reed for 7 For All Mankind, but fortunately, People Newspapers reporter Georgia Fisher got it covered by passing along the assignment to her shadow of the week, high school senior Claire Criss. The duo […]
