Yum. Jewelry.

Have you ever seen a celebrity and they’re, like, crying because they didn’t win a prize at one of the awards shows? And then you hear about the goody bags they get and you want to vomit because they get the COOLEST STUFF?

Well our friend Sheela at Kuukivi has one of her designs in those goody bags and I’m so jealous!

Kuukivi will be among the select group of companies providing products for the 2007 “Everybody Wins at the Emmy Awards” Nominee Gift Bags. Kuukivi’s necklaces were selected exclusively for the gift bags, which will be handed out to the non-winning nominees in the major categories of the Emmy Awards on September 16th, 2007.

I’m jealous that they get to open up goody bags and come across necklaces like this:
($85 on Kuukivi)

Another designer I loooove is Gigi Caron. Wendy, the mastermind behind the line, is one of those women you’d like to take out for drinks and learn from. Wendy has worked at CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and People and if that’s not cool enough for you, her jewelry follows a great theme:

Wendy is strongly influenced by the history of powerful women and the jewelry they wore. She especially loves poison rings and lockets. Each piece in the diamond and 18K matte yellow gold Vivat Regina collection is named for a different queen (Vivat Regina means “Long live the Queen” in Latin). This site includes mini bios of all the queens, so it’s fashionable AND educational. The It Girls pieces take their names and personalities from cool women ranging from kings’ paramours to Swinging ’60s chicks to fabulous family and friends.

Oh, AND she uses conflict-free diamonds. A few of her designs:

Juana Peekaboo Skull Ring, , $7,000.

Victoria Buckle Ring, Gigi Caron, $6,250.

Dekko Earrings, Gigi Caron, $450.

Happy Friday!
