New sparkly gems just arrived here at MaJe Gallery, to tantalize our eyes.

New Sparkly Gems – Pendants

New sparkly gems like these three pendants by Bill Booze
A trio of pendants

Bill Booze is a master faceter of gemstones. That means he starts off with rough stones like these peridot samples…

New sparkly gems start out like this

Now look at the pendent on the left again, to see the result of Bill’s amazing skill in faceting gemstones to reveal the utmost clarity and sparkle within. Here’s that pendant on to give you an idea of the proportions.

New sparkly gems like this double peridot pendant look even better on a body.
Peridot Pendant Modeled



A larger faceted round peridot is on top, while a smaller one is at the lower end of the arc. Sterling silver setting comes complete with 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New sparkly gems like this 6.6 carat garnet in an emerald cut
Emerald-cut Garnet modeled



If you love garnets, you know how unusual it is to find one this large without white or clear inclusions. At 6.6 carats, the clarity and depth of color on this beauty are inspiring. Set in a sterling silver setting, and comes complete with an 18″ sterling silver rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $500.

New sparkly gems like this triple-garnet pendant in sterling silver
Triple-Garnet pendant modeled



An usual sterling silver setting for a trio of faceted round garnets shows that you enjoy beautiful jewelry with a unique character. These pendants are not for the woman who wants to look like everybody else. Includes 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New Sparkly Gems – Rings

Even though March is nearly over, with aquamarine as the birthstone, I want to show you this new aquamarine ring from Bill Booze, our master faceter. The pale blue color looks stunning in this sterling silver setting.

The cool hue of this particular aquamarine is enhanced by the coolness of the sterling silver band and prongs. Check it out on my hand…

New sparkly gems are great in rings. Morganite and Smoky quartz faceted by Bill Booze

Options



On the left, a pale pink morganite gem faceted by Bill Booze captures the imagination. In the same family as aquamarine (beryl), it is strong and brilliant with lots of sparkly – especially because of the additional facets Bill always adds to the underside of the gems he cuts. A simple sterling setting lets the stone show off its clarity. $400. Available in any size you need.

On the right is a spectacular smoky quartz stone, also faceted by Bill Booze. A very cool setting features an unusual sterling band with a squared-off top and 14k yellow gold prongs. $450. Available in any size you need.

New Sparkly Gems – Earrings

Okay, they’re actually glass that is as pretty as a gemstone. Enjoy these lovely new choices from Passiko.

Passiko tells the story about these mis-matched earrings she calls “Best Friend” earrings. Why is that? When you have a best friend, you have a lot of things in common…but not everything. Just like these earrings. Individually crafted from heavy sterling wire into beguiling curves and twists, and adorned with a hand-made glass bead by another artist from Washington’s peninsula. One-of-a-kind of course. These four are priced $32 – $38.

Thanks for coming along to see our new sparkly gems – and glass. Stop by to see them in person, and say hi!

Imagine Spring! A Splash of Color For You

I see green sprouts coming up and crocuses blooming here and there. The early camellias are in blossom. We spring forward in time this Sunday. All the signs are here that spring is imminent! And we’re none too impatient for it here at MaJe Gallery because we’re getting new deliveries with a splash of color for you.

A Splash of Color For You

Splash of color for you like this spring green cowl top from Color Me Cotton
Spring Green in Soft Fabric

California’s Color Me Cotton made their ultra-popular cowl top in a spring green for 2018. This tunic-length top feels super soft against your skin because the fabric is a rayon blend. Wide 3/4 sleeves leave room for movement in the arms. The flattering design hides everything you want to hide in the torso. Just in a few days ago and already flying out the door! Also coming in a pretty blue shade in a few weeks. If you’re interested in that one, let me know so I can set it aside before anyone else snags it. Just $89. Machine Washable and great for travel. (Update: JUST ONE LEFT!)

Splash of color for you might be this Melody top from Testimony Los Angeles
Navy heather “Melody” top from Testimony

Sizes



If you prefer a shorter top rather than a tunic, look no further than this new piece from California’s Testimony called the “Melody” top. The neckline is close to a crew neck, which will please those of you who don’t like a deep plunge. The best part is that the ruffles around the torso actually offer a slimmer profile by disguising what’s beneath! 3/4 sleeves are a great year-round length, too. Machine washable rayon jersey fabric is nice and soft. Great for travel. Just $98.

It’s a Top, It’s a Jacket!

Splash of color for spring might be a bright top beneath this black linen top jacket by Color Me Cotton
Black Linen Top-Jacket

Sizes



One way to think about packing for a trip is to collect black basics, then add a splash of color to change it up. This black linen top can be worn alone as a top, or left open with a tank or shell beneath to add variety to your closet or suitcase. Paired here with a HaZe tank in geranium and a Susie Howell lined black pencil skirt in medium. It’s comfortable, classy and easy to pack. The linen top-jacket is $98, the tank is $28, and the skirt is $89.

Two Great Jackets

Testimony Los Angeles is our go-to choice for jackets from spring to fall due to the perfect weight of the cotton french terry fabric. Here are two excellent new choices for you.

Splash of color for you might include Testimony's new Coco jacket in Poppy
Testimony’s Coco jacket in “Poppy”

“Poppy” is the vibrant new orange/red shade from Testimony Los Angeles. What better way to add a happy color to your wardrobe? The Coco jacket is a short, boxy jacket similar in look to a jean jacket, but much softer and stretchy – which means it is super comfortable to wear. It has pockets too! It has all the wonderful details that Testimony is famous for. Shown here over the “Melody” top I showed you above.  Just $159. Machine washable. (Update: Sold out! I ordered more for first week of June. Call me to reserve your size.)

Splash of color might be this lovely blue Leona Jacket from Testimony Los Angeles
Testimony’s “Leona” jacket in azure

Calling all lovers of BLUE! Another color Testimony is offering now is this lovely blue called “azure.” It’s even prettier in person, so stop by to check it out and see for yourself. This longer jacket falls above the knee and has a lovely drape along with nice pockets. An asymmetrical hem overlay in the back keeps you looking great both coming and going. Made of their delicious cotton french terry fabric, it is soft, stretchy, great for travel and machine washable. Shown here over the “Melody” top I showed you above. Just $189. (Update: Sold out!)

Splash of color like the Leona jacket from Testimony Los Angeles in azure
The “Leona” jacket, buttoned

Here’s that same jacket buttoned up with the button on the side and beneath the collar. It’s a great jacket! I have it in black right now too, if you’d rather have that.

More spring items are arriving weekly, so stay tuned and you’ll get a new update next week!
