Whenever I visit NYC, I like to think of Doyle & Doyle as my home-away-from-home. Everything about the store, the jewels inside, the people inside, the neighborhood…it’s my favorite! It only felt right to have my first ever meet up there and I was excited to also reunite with Elizabeth & Pamela, the best sister duo in the biz. And of course, I had to see their latest finds–there were even exclusive pieces displayed just for the event, and never seen before!
One of the pieces that had me in a trance was a carved emerald ring (pictured above) in a teardrop shape, with diamonds surrounding it. I don’t think it is on their website yet since it was making its debut when I visited, but you can always email the team at the store. Another ring I could have just stared at all day was the opal and demantoid garnet (a bright green colored garnet) ring. That particular ring is actually up on their website, so if you’d like more info, just click here. That ring seriously GLOWS and it surely made a splash on Instagram. Another popular piece that I featured from my visit was a peridot ring with a secret. I say secret because at first glance it looks like any cocktail ring–large, enchanting peridot gemstone, surrounded by some gorgeous diamonds. If you look closer, you will notice two tiny screw mechanisms on each side. These let the wearer remove the top portion of the ring and wear it as a pendant! How cool is that?! Those Victorians sure knew how to trail blaze convertible jewelry.
I just want to say a special thank you to the team at Doyle & Doyle for always welcoming me into their store. And thanks to those who took the time out of their day to come and visit with me, whether it was your first time meeting me or we’ve been BFF since the very beginning of Gem Gossip, your continued support means the world to me!
