Winter Tassel Wonderland

Dashing through the snow, with a tassel on each ear!

We didn’t think it was fair to let summer have all the tassel fun, so we combined all the best, most refined, fall and winter hues with the playfulness and bouncy joy of tassels.

Move over, Jingle Bells, there’s a new cheerful accessory this season!

We launched our first tassel collection this past spring (which has now been restocked in our shop and ready for any of your warm weather vacations).  Immediately, we knew we needed to follow it up with a Winter Tassel Collection full of chic and sophisticated hues.

And, at only $45 per pair, they are going to be everyone’s favorite holiday gift to give and receive!

We debuted this collection at our Holiday Trunk Show and Shop Small Weekend celebration.
These Black and White Tiered Tassel Earrings are, so far, the clear customer favorite.

It’s easy to fall for ombre.  As a neutral, they will pair well with just about every outfit.  We can’t wait to wear them to all our holiday soirees!

If color is more your thing, we’ve got you covered!

These Blush Tassel Earrings feature two semiprecious gemstones in maroon and grey jasper.  And like all the earrings in this collection, they are hung on gold plated earwires.  So, no sensitivity issues here! 

This Millennial favorite is the perfect “wear all year” color.  They’ll be a great transition piece come springtime.

One of our favorite features of the Tassel Jewelry is the big impact it makes without the big pull on your ears.  The cotton is so lightweight. You’ll totally forget you’re wearing them at all.

(Except that, really, you won’t because everyone will be complimenting you on them all day long!)

All the color, all the fun, all the “pop” without any of the sore, itchy end-of-day ears.  They might just be the holy grail of earrings!

First of all, whoever said yellow is (only) a summer color is WRONG.
Our Mustard Yellow and Grey Tassel Earrings were another fan-favorite over their debut weekend.  And we think they look especially lovely on our brunette babes.  

The rich yellow cotton brings the fun, while the black and grey semiprecious labradorite stones keep them polished.

J’Adorn Designer Ali has been wearing these chic Solid Black Tiered Tassel Earrings for several weeks as she was creating the collection. They are a stunning and sophisticated dress-up / dress-down piece that get all the compliments.

So in review, our Tassel Earrings feature:
  • Lightweight Cotton for comfortable all-day wear
  • Gold Plated Earwires for even the most sensitive ears
  • Semiprecious Gemstones on the non-tiered tassels
  • ALL THE COLORS! Seriously, it’s like a rainbow in the shop!
  • $45 Price Tag so that you can gift one to yourself, too

Whatever your color preference, we’ve got a tassel for you.  We’ve only given you a glimpse of the color options here on the blog and can’t wait to see which tassel (or, tassels) you’ll fall for!

Grab your gift list, check it twice and shimmy on over to the shop.  Load up your cart (read: sleigh) with this year’s happiest, most fun gift!

Happy Tassels For All, And For All, A Good Buy!

Bracelets

When it came to bracelets, the Baltimore Museum of Art wanted something a little different. They liked our Chunky Crystal & Pearl Link Bracelet, but requested a customization: rose gold metals.
Since we’re custom jewelers at heart, we were happy to oblige! And we love the thought that the Baltimore Museum of Art has a piece of J’Adorn Designs jewelry that’s exclusive to their shop. As of this blog’s publication date, you can’t find this bracelet in rose gold anywhere else!

Hair Accessories

When we first met with the Baltimore Museum of Art, it was our hair accessories that caught their eye. With headpieces gaining popularity outside of the wedding industry, they were excited to add some to their lineup! They selected pieces with the material themes of raw crystal and rose gold elements with these three pieces from our collection:
