Ten Thousand Things antique jewelry

The name TEN THOUSAND THINGS (TTT) is taken from a line of ancient Chinese philosophy: “from one thing begets the ten thousand things.” This principle of infinite creativity and constant evolution guides designers David Rees and Ron Anderson, who have been at the helm since it’s inception for over 20 years.

Each TTT piece has the integrity of antique jewelry but is distinctly modern: both organic and refined. Materials include rare American pearls from the Mississippi River, unusual sapphire cabochons in beautiful colors, black opals and diamonds, both brilliant white and unusual colors. A signature technique is delicate gold or silver beading on chain as necklaces and earrings. TTT’s latest innovations have come from exploring abstract shapes inspired by nature and making compositions of these shapes into strikingly original earrings and pendants and bracelets.

CAROLEE Jewelry creates Hollywood Glamour

Awards season is upon us, and the red carpet has never looked better.  While ogling over award-winning style is a universal luxury, wearing luxury jewelry is sadly not a reality for most.  Luckily this March CAROLEE is launching two glamorous collections fit for even the chicest celebrities.  The CAROLEE New York Aqua Mist and CAROLEE LUX Opal Essence collections both incorporate old Hollywood glamour, as well as iconic motifs and campaigns from the company’s rich archives, and modern design.  Elegantly cut opalescent gems, icy blue and clear crystals, and filigree silvertone metal will bring timeless flair to any ensemble.

Always a wonderful gift for your bridal party and something I’m sure they will enjoy for years to come. I know I do.


The CAROLEE New York Aqua Mist and CAROLEE LUX Opal Essence and the full collections are available at Bloomingdale’s and
