“I first saw Elva Fields necklaces on the Oh Joy blog and fell in love with them; they’re just so perfectly beautiful and I keep checking and checking for new necklaces because all of the ones I coveted were sold! Tangled Up in Gold and The Sun is Shining were two favorites, and there was a breathtaking blue one which is no longer there.

“My very dearest friend in the world is a young jewelry lover and product buyer from Korea who regularly sends me emails with names of exquisite jewelry designers whose collections she suggests that I explore (usually they’re French or Italian). Yesterday she sent me a link to a site for an jewelry designer whom I loved more than any other I have seen so far—in fact I was mesmerized by their pieces. They were feminine without being too precious, modern and entirely unique yet with a distinctive historic feel…in short, they were yours!” —Sara, New York
