Jewellery Selection Tales: Anya of @GemFever

I simply gravitated toward Anya’s Instagram feed after i to start with learned “GemFever” and caught my own gemstone fever due to it. Her taste is really refined and he or she features a wonderful eye! A great number of of her offered archives are parts I had wished I pounced on when they ended up initial stated…and incidently her jewels she does market often come to be “sold” more rapidly than it is possible to email her. It had been a surprise to fulfill her in man or woman at my GIA Alumni presentation in DC and permit me just say, it absolutely was like conversing with someone I had recognized my total lifestyle! So satisfied that she’s sharing her assortment with us now:

Jewelry has usually drawn me in, I love getting wearable treasures and i’m hooked on gemstones. I selected the title “gem fever” to determine myself on several on-line platforms due to the fact that is how gemstones make me really feel – feverish, thrilled, passionate.

The items I now have in my jewelry box I have gathered over the last six years or so. I found out Etsy in 2010 and cherished acquiring stores with one particular of a kind handmade parts that I might never come across in a very local jewelry store. However not long ago I have concentrated on good classic jewelry, I nonetheless use a number of pieces from Etsy artists that i seriously treasure (for example the pomegranate pendant from Winged Lion as well as scrimshaw ring from Linda Layden).

Due to the fact I promote classic jewellery, rather a handful of items have transitioned from my shop to my particular collection, and vice versa. I have seen the pieces that stick close to tend to be the ones that sweep me off my feet unexpectedly. I may find them when I am searching for one thing else and the jewels decide on me to generally be their caretaker. This took place with my most beloved piece – my Previous Mine Slash diamond earrings. I had been browsing at Intergem, kind of on the lookout to get a vintage diamond ring. I ended because of the booth with the vendor Efim Gilin and asked to see a couple of matters. Elena, who is an extremely welcoming and gifted vendor, pulled out these earrings regardless that I hadn’t been asking about earrings in any respect. The instant I noticed them, they took my breath absent. I do not assume best engagement ringsI’d ever felt this type of rush from purchasing a bit of jewelry before, I just had to have them. They have been above my spending plan so I place them on layaway, then worked and reworked my funds so I could fork out them off right away. When the time came, my spouse and that i took a visit to Big apple to pick them up, and experienced an excellent time. We have designed really a number of journeys alongside one another to examine out jewels all over the place, or to head to reveals, and it is often terrific enjoyment.

I love likely to antique displays to examine out jewellery in individual. But my absolute most loved spot to search for classic items continues to be eBay – I really like the treasure hunt. Purchasing on eBay can be a skill, you will need to get yourself a truly feel for the condition of items, check out out for fakes and reproductions, prevent shady sellers with phony listings, and the like. For anyone who is ready to place inside the time for you to research and choose the pitfalls, eBay can definitely repay.

My personal selection is consistently evolving, and i want to hold it fairly modest. I are likely to don a handful of favorites on a regular basis, and endure phases of favorites (now my emerald ring receives probably the most don). My ongoing obsession is classic diamonds, I have been around the hunt to the “perfect” previous minimize for several years. I like that no two vintage diamonds are exactly alike. I’ve quickly owned some breathtaking stones, but finished up advertising every one because the excitement on the look for is addictive. Someday, I will decide to a classic diamond engagement ring, but for now I’m sporting a French slice diamond band which i had tailor made manufactured applying classic diamonds from the cocktail ring I found on eBay, set right into a platinum bezel band because of the talented designer Caysie van Bebber from CvB Influenced Style. In terms of metals, I love each prosperous yellow gold and also the coolness of platinum. In general, I might say I retain parts in my particular assortment every time they fill me with pleasure.

In the future, I might want to include more gemstones to my selection. There is certainly an opal and spinel ring from the is effective. I’m craving additional emeralds, furthermore a blue sapphire that could attract me in much like the huge starry sky (a woman can desire!). I’d love a vintage diamond cocktail ring like Danielle’s outstanding Edwardian items.

And naturally, I’m thrilled to view which jewels will find me unexpectedly and alter my assortment in means I can not nonetheless imagine.
