Item of the Day

“She sells seashells by the seashore. The shells she sells are surely seashells. So if she sells shells on the seashore, I’m sure she sells seashore shells.”

Whew, those tongue twisters really get us twisted.  Better to concentrate our minds on the more soothing side of things, like the seashore. Where you find seashells.

Designer Carolina Amato is thinking along the same lines in her latest jewelry collection, Pacifica.

“From an early age I have always found peace and tranquility from the sound of the waves,” says Amato. “This collection was designed to evoke those same feelings of peacefulness and beauty when worn.”

The Pacifica piece that spoke “peacefulness and beauty” to us? This sparkling starfish ring resplendent with 136 Swarovski elements in white opal, silk and crystal golden shadow.

Even if an afternoon on the beach is still a long way off where you live, it’s easy to live vicariously through this statement look.
