Roses are Red, Gold is True: The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift Awaits You!

Roses are Red, Gold is True: The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift Awaits You!

Did you know that rose gold traces back to 19th-century Russia? The visionary jeweler Carl Fabergé, renowned for his exquisite Fabergé Eggs, introduced rose gold into the world of jewelry. Its journey continued to captivate hearts during the Art Deco era in the 1920s, when intricate and feminine designs took center stage and were popularized in engagement rings.

A Hue for All: Rose Gold's Versatility

One of the magical qualities of rose gold is its universal appeal. With its warm undertones, it complements various skin tones, making it an ideal choice for jewelry lovers of all shades. And it’s not just a feminine color contrary to popular belief, – it's a versatile and chic option that looks equally fantastic on men, adding sophistication to wedding bands, watch bands, and even phones.

Dress for Venus: Jewelry Recommendations Based on Your Venus Sign

I will admit, dressing for your Venus is a new concept for me. A TikTok-induced rabbit hole recently introduced me to the idea that aligning your style with your Venus sign, rather than your Sun sign, can help you attract, manifest, and boost your confidence.

(From my understanding Sun = personality, Venus = aesthetic)

Who knew that you could be other signs on other planets? I sure didn't.

As an Aquarius, I never actually felt like I dressed or presented how an Aquarius's wardrobe is typically described. Words like "quirky" or "novel" are commonly used and I always find myself gravitating toward more reserved choices, favoring blacks and neutral colors, clean lines, and muted patterns. Turns out, I'm a Capricorn Venus. And looking at the descriptions of Capricorn, this actually makes a lot of sense. 

To find my Venus sign, I used this free chart calculator.

Because I am a visual person, here is an aesthetic interpretation of all 12 Venus signs. Find yours below and see if it aligns with you!

 

Aries:

The words that describe Aries are daring, fearless, and dynamic. She’s very direct and authentic in nature and not afraid to be bold in accessorizing.  

Here are the pieces I would recommend for an Aries Venus :

  • MCM Tie Necklace: This inventive necklace blurs masculine and feminine lines, making a daring and powerful statement that Aries would love.
  • Aperture Earrings: Bold yet lightweight statement earrings with an unusual geometric design that's sure to turn heads.
  • Movimento Earrings: Chandelier-inspired earrings, striking the perfect balance of allure for an Aries.
 

Taurus:

Taurus gives off relaxed, classy, and chill-girl vibes. She’s the epitome of understated elegance and is often found in muted earth tones. She’s got the heart of a minimalist mixed with an earth goddess.

How to Measure Your Ring Size At Home: Jewelry Sizing Tips

Ordering the perfect ring online is an exciting experience, but not knowing your ring size can be daunting. Don't worry; I've got you covered. In this blog post, we'll explore how to measure your ring size from the comfort of your home and provide you with jewelry sizing tips to ensure a perfect fit. With this knowledge, you'll be able to confidently choose your next ring for you or your partner!

1. Print a Ring Size Chart

  1. Hop Online: Image search for a ring size chart online. You'll find plenty of printable options.

  2. Scale It Right: Ensure the chart is printed to scale; this is crucial for accurate measurements. There's usually a scale indicator on the chart to help you confirm.

  3. Find a Ring: Locate a ring that currently fits comfortably on the finger you plan to wear your new jewelry.

  4. Match It Up: Place the ring over the chart, aligning the inner circle of the ring with the corresponding sizes on the chart. When the two match up perfectly, you've found your ring size.

2. Measure with String or Ribbon

  1. Gather Materials: Get a piece of string, ribbon, floss, or even a strip of paper. You'll also need a marker and a ruler with millimeter measurements.

  2. Wrap and Mark: Carefully wrap the string around your finger, ensuring it's snug but not too tight. Cross the ends over each other.

  3. Make Your Marks: Use the marker to make clear marks where the string or ribbon overlaps at both ends.

  4. Measure in Millimeters: Now, use your ruler to measure the length between the marks. Be sure to measure in millimeters for accuracy.

  5. Consult a Chart: Compare your measurement to a ring circumference chart. This will give you an estimate of your ring size.

3: Use a Ring Sizer

  1. The Easiest Way: If you want the most accurate measurement, consider using a ring sizer. You can purchase one online and in our case, from the STUDIYO Jewelry online shop.

  2. Slip It On: Slide the ring sizer onto the finger you intend to wear the ring on.

  3. Adjust for Comfort: Gently pull and adjust the sizer until it fits snugly but comfortably on your finger. It should be easy to slide over your knuckles.

  4. Discover Your Size: The ring sizer typically features an arrow pointing to your ring size. Feel free to measure multiple fingers to ensure you get the right fit.

Ready to Order!

Now that you've mastered these three simple methods for measuring ring size at home, you can confidently determine your ring size. These jewelry sizing tips are invaluable for successful ring shopping. Armed with this knowledge, you can order your favorite made-to-order rings online without the worry of getting the wrong size. At STUDIYO Jewelry, we offer a range of made-to-order rings that can be customized to your exact size. Ring sizers are also available on our website. So, go ahead, find your perfect fit, and let me create something special just for you!

Gold or Silver: Which Metal Complements Your Skin Tone?

Gold or Silver: Which Metal Complements Your Skin Tone?

Have you ever stood in front of a jewelry display, torn between the allure of silver and the warmth of gold? If you're like me, you've probably wondered which metal best complements your skin tone. Well, I recently embarked on a quest to unravel this age-old dilemma. Here's what I discovered:

Tan ≠ Warm:

First things first, let's debunk a common misconception. Having a tan doesn't automatically mean you have warm undertones. Likewise, being fair-skinned doesn't necessarily make you cool-toned. Skin tone and undertones are not always correlated with how much melanin you have.

Cool Undertones and Silver Shine:

Here's the trick, check your wrist! If the veins on the inside of your wrist look blue or purple, you've got cool undertones! Silver and colorless metals like stainless steel can work wonders for you. They have a brightening effect, enhancing the natural radiance of your skin. On the flip side, yellow gold can sometimes emphasize any underlying redness.

Warm Undertones Bask in Gold:

Conversely, if your veins appear green or yellow, your undertones lean toward the warm spectrum, and gold and rose gold are your allies. These warm-toned metals complement your yellow undertones, adding a touch of luminosity. White metals, on the other hand, might make you appear a tad washed out.

The Neutral Ground:

If your veins have a mix of blues and greens or if you find it hard to see your veins, you might be one of the lucky ones with neutral undertones! In this case, you're in for a treat. You can effortlessly rock all gold, rose gold, and silver. Neutral skin tones play well with all metal hues, so you don't have to limit your choices.

While the rules are helpful guidelines, remember that your personal style and preferences should ultimately guide your metal choices. The most important thing is to wear what makes you feel confident and happy!

To make your decision-making process a bit easier, I've created a fun quiz to help you find your undertone that takes your style and skin sensitivities into account! It's quick, enjoyable, and might just provide the nudge you need to pick your perfect metal match.

Give it a try and let me know if it matches with your intuition. After all, jewelry is not just adornment; it's an expression of your unique style and beauty.

Precious Metals, Precious Moments: Why Sterling Silver and Gold Vermeil Are Worth the Investment

Precious Metals, Precious Moments: Why Sterling Silver and Gold Vermeil Are Worth the Investment

Jewelry isn't just an accessory; it's a statement of style, a reflection of personality, and a keeper of memories. In the realm of jewelry, the choice of metals can significantly impact the way we connect with our adornments. Sterling silver and gold vermeil, two remarkable and timeless choices, offer more than just aesthetics; they encapsulate stories, emotions, and the essence of precious moments. And what better way to experience the beauty of these metals than with our newly launched Fundamental Forma Collection.

Pictured: Helix studs in gold vermeil

The Beauty of Sterling Silver

When it comes to jewelry, few metals have the enduring appeal of sterling silver. Composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy metals, sterling silver marries elegance with durability. Its bright, gleaming surface catches the light in a way that is both captivating and understated. This versatile metal effortlessly transitions from casual to formal, making it an ideal companion for all occasions.

But sterling silver's allure isn't just skin-deep. Its lasting shine is a testament to its resilience. With proper care, sterling silver pieces can stand the test of time, becoming heirlooms that tell stories for generations. Unlike trends that fade, the value and luster of sterling silver remain steadfast, evoking memories of milestones, celebrations, and everyday moments.

Affordable Luxury with Gold Vermeil

For those seeking a touch of opulence, gold vermeil offers a bridge to the world of fine jewelry without the hefty price tag. Gold vermeil is created by layering a substantial coat of 14k or 18k gold over sterling silver, resulting in a dazzling sheen that exudes luxury. This marriage of metals grants you the privilege of wearing exquisite pieces that radiate elegance and grandeur.

The allure of gold vermeil extends beyond aesthetics. It symbolizes a commitment to quality and style, creating an aura of sophistication that resonates with those who wear it. As with sterling silver, gold vermeil too can become a treasure that evokes cherished memories and commemorates special moments.

Elevate Your Everyday with Timeless Quality

In a world where fleeting trends vie for our attention, there's something undeniably comforting about investing in jewelry that stands the test of time. Sterling silver and gold vermeil are not just materials; they are conduits for self-expression, symbols of commitment, and vessels of treasured memories.

Imagine the pleasure of donning a piece from our newly launched Fundamental Forma Collection. It's not just jewelry; it's an elevation of your everyday style. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, these designs epitomize an unmatched level of quality that will be cherished for years and years to come.

Inspiration in Mexico City

Inspiration in Mexico City

This summer, we finally took an international trip and went to visit Mexico City!

After sending pieces of jewelry to and hearing such amazing things about Mexico City, we had to go visit. This trip was our first international vacation since the pandemic and it was so refreshing to be in a new country experiencing the sights, architecture, and food in person.

A couple of things that I remember most about Mexico City was

  1. How green and luscious the city felt literally everywhere
  2. The mix of modern with historical architecture. We stayed in Roma Norte, the quintessential example of this design style.
  3. Simplicity and truth to materiality in their spaces, fashion, and style.
  4. The colorful (literally the bright colors!) community culture like salsa dancing teaching and learning in public parks <3
  5. Purse hooks designed and provided at every restaurant! 

Here are some of my favorite places we visited and would recommend!

Casa Gilardi

One of my favorite places to visit was Casa Gilardi. I had learned about the architect Luis Barragan in architecture school but never thought I’d actually be able to visit one of his homes in person. 

Did you know this house was originally designed as a bachelor pad for 2 men? This house is actually still a residential home and is maintained and managed by the family of one of the original bachelors. They generously allow visitors to come see the space and give tours, we just needed to email them to set up a time.

Luis Barragan’s use of this vibrant pink is what has become known as “Mexico City Pink”. What struck me the most about the space is the simplicity and truth to materiality that is present throughout the space. Using humble materials like paint over windows, he creates stunning plays on light and shadow. I know I will be referencing these photos for inspiration.

Tetetlán

    Many of the restaurants, shops, and modern spaces have been built into historic buildings. Existing elements like the structural columns, stone reliefs, and details have been respected and built around. Many of which create an open courtyard feel which seemed very common in restaurants. Many of these spaces would have a giant tree growing in the middle of the space extending out beyond the roof.

    Tetetlan is one of the craziest space I’ve ever been to. This space used to be horse stables and is now a multifunctional space housing a restaurant, library, cafe, yoga studio and a store selling local goods. The entire floor is made of glass and is built on top of volcanic rock.

    I’m really jealous of the library spaces/cafes in Mexico City. They really make them such lovely places to be, to work, and they stay open until like 10 pm at night!

    Also, how do I get one of these chairs, please?

    Biblioteca Vasconcelos

    The next spot that I would say is a must-see is Biblioteca Vasconcelos. The library was designed as if the information is floating. I had to walk into every one of those alcoves to see this space from all the different angles.

    Each aisle is framed in a way that you can walk out to the balcony and see the vast amount of levels and books. And while the building is full of concrete and glass, it was amazing how quiet and muted the space felt. 

    High above your head, cantilevered balconies fill the space creating hundreds of new and exciting angles to view the space. This giant library was definitely designed to be explored.

    Xinú Perfumes

    A fun place for upscale shopping is Polanco. This space is filled with high-end shops, luxury homes, and really fun concept stores like Ikal and Lago. 

    An unexpected favorite place to visit here was a perfume shop named Xinú. I’ve never been to a store that was so much of an experience. You buzz into a space lined with gorgeous perfume bottles. Then into a dark hallway and up a spiral staircase to reveal the most stunning retail display I’ve ever seen. 

    Each section of this table was filled with beautiful objects to tell the story of each scent. It is an interactive table encouraging you to pick things up to smell the scents trapped in gorgeous glass bottles. They even display ways to reuse their perfume bottles once they are empty.

    There is so much to see in Mexico City, these are just a few of the many places to see! I'd highly recommend making a trip if you haven't been! And if you're flying from San Diego, make sure you check out the Cross Border Xpress! It was pretty easy and saved us quite a bit of money on international flights because we flew domestically from Tijuana!

     

    Happy Travels!

    Minimal vs. Understated Jewelry Styles: Which is Right for You?

    Minimal vs. Understated Jewelry Styles: Which is Right for You?

    What is the Difference between Minimal and Understated Jewelry?

    Minimal and understated jewelry are becoming increasingly popular among fashion-forward individuals. While both types of jewelry tend to fall into the same category, minimal jewelry is characterized by its simple yet elegant designs, while understated jewelry focuses more on subtlety and sophistication. Both styles are designed to be timeless, classic pieces that can be worn for years to come. 

    The main difference between minimal and understated jewelry is the level of detail in the design. Minimal jewelry typically features fewer decorative elements than its understated counterpart, making it perfect for those who prefer a more pared-down look. On the other hand, understated pieces often have more intricate details such as delicate engravings or small stones that add a touch of sophistication without being too flashy.

    Minimal Jewelry for the Masses

    Minimal jewelry focuses on simple lines, basic shapes, and neutral colors that can easily be paired with any outfit. Think bar necklaces, threader earrings, dainty stacking rings. Because of it's popularity, you'll most likely find some version of these styles at any jewelry store and online shop. Their simplified nature results in all of these pieces looking rather similar. If you were to see a bar necklace across the room, for example, it's unlikely that you'd be able to tell where they purchased that necklace from. This is great if you are looking for unbranded basics that are easy to throw on and create an effortless look without trying to stand out from the crowd.

    Understated Jewelry is a Little Harder to Find than Minimal Jewelry

    Finding minimal jewelry is easy because it's everywhere, but finding unique and uncommon jewelry can be more difficult. This type of jewelry is a bit rarer and harder to find than minimal jewelry, but it can make a bigger statement. Whether you're looking for something truly one-of-a-kind or just want something that stands out from the crowd, understated jewelry can be the perfect choice. With its unique designs and rare materials, this type of jewelry will help you make a statement without being too flashy.

    Understated jewelry is also the perfect option for introverts who want a unique way to express themselves without being too loud. It is a type of fashion accessory that is subtle, low-key, and doesn't draw too much attention. Understated jewelry pieces are often made from simple materials like gold and silver, but can also be made from more unique materials like stainless steel, wood or glass.

    The Benefits of Investing in Timeless & Understated Jewelry

    Investing in timeless and understated jewelry is a great way to ensure that you always look your best. These jewelry pieces are designed to last for years, so you can enjoy the same level of sophistication and elegance without constantly buying new pieces. These pieces add elevated intrigue, making them a great choice for those who want to look their best without drawing too much attention. Not only will these pieces never go out of fashion, they will also help you stand out from the crowd elegantly yet subtly.

    Meet Diana Lee of San Diego

    Meet Diana Lee of San Diego

    *Article featured on SD Voyager*

    Today we’d like to introduce you to Diana Lee.  

    Hi Diana, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.

    Sure! My name is Diana “Yoyo” Lee and I am the creator of STUDIYO Jewelry where I make architectural jewelry inspired by my background as a commercial interior designer. I’ve always been an artsy/crafty kid that was always drawing, crocheting, or making way too elaborate things for school projects and I think that I always wanted to be some sort of artist. But, like a lot of kids, was told at a young age that being an artist would never be a viable career. So, I went to college and studied Interior Architecture and Product Design.

    After college, I started working as an interior designer at an architecture firm, and immediately, the big difference in my life was that I was no longer making with my hands. In school, I always had “studio” and was constantly making models, creating prototypes, and making in the wood shop. Once I entered the working world, everything was mostly digital. I found myself on the computer all day and missed the physical feeling of making, to the point that it was causing me to feel empty inside. I started teaching myself how to make jewelry in 2017, pretty much only a few months after starting my job, and taught myself how to sell online. It started out very slow and grew alongside my progression as a designer at my firm. I had the opportunity to work on many interesting commercial projects with fun clients in the Seattle area like The Pokémon International Company, Google, and Indeed, and had a constant source of inspiration in my job as an interior designer while also having an outlet that was entirely mine. Having a full-time job while I was learning about building a small business took the financial pressure off and I was able to have this hobby that, at a minimum, paid for itself for many years.

    My coworkers were my first models and my jewelry started catching on with other designers from different firms. I was told that my jewelry was something that reminded them of a trip to Barcelona or Italy, earrings became great gifts for architects, and the feeling of other designers and my peers wanting to wear my jewelry was very validating, exciting, and addicting.

    The last couple of years have really forced myself, and many others I believe, to really think about what lights us up and what we really want to be working on, and I decided to start transitioning from only working on my business at night and on weekends, to part-time, and now finally taking the leap and working on STUDIYO Jewelry full time. Together with my partner and 2 cats, we just made the move from the Seattle area to San Diego, and am so excited to build STUDIYO Jewelry up here!

    Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?

    Haha oh my goodness, definitely not. When you go to college for a specific job type that you hope to get after school, there are many expectations for you to stay in that career. Whether those expectations come from family, your partner, friends, coworkers…etc. When I first started, I was super quiet about it and never wanted to tell people that this is what I was doing. It took many years of quiet persistence to convince the people around me that this was something that I would be continuing to pursue, regardless if it was paying the bills. And mentally that can be really hard. Luckily my partner was one of the first people to be convinced that this is something I want to do and once I had him on board, it really made me feel more validated and open about this business. Not everyone who starts a small business has a good support system and that period of time can be really difficult and lonely. 

    Then on top of the mental gauntlet, you wear all the hats in a small business if it’s just you. You design the product, make the product, market the product, design the packaging for the product, and ship the product yourself. It’s a ton of work and when you first start out, you’re not really making a paycheck so it can be very exhausting. 

    To be honest, I don’t know if running a small business is ever a smooth road. (At least I haven’t experienced that yet.) There are crazy ups and downs, it’s a little unpredictable, and I’m always learning something new every day. I think I will always feel like I have more to learn but that’s also what makes it fun and exciting! 

    Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?

    Yes, so in terms of jewelry-making, I am completely self-taught, and my pieces are a combination of graphic design, architecture, and art. All my designs are inspired by the sleek hard-working women I am constantly surrounded by in the design field. My pieces take snapshots and details found in the architectural world and abstracts them in a way to create modern and unique pieces that are easily wearable with your favorite go-to outfits. My recent collections including the Tracery Collection, MOD Collection, and Luminaire II Collection were inspired by cathedrals, mid-century modern furniture, and light fixtures.

     

    Because my background is in interior architecture, I feel like my design process thus far has definitely been influenced from making paper models. This process translates pretty seamlessly to flat sheet metal, which is what the majority of my designs are made from.

     

     

    I really enjoy using industrial metals like brass and stainless steel in my pieces and recently have started creating more with stainless steel because I really dislike cleaning tarnish off my jewelry. I found that I can leave stainless steel out and not have to worry about tarnish for much, much longer than any of my brass or sterling silver pieces. I also love that it’s such a tough and industrial metal that is for sure harder to work with, but also makes my lightweight and delicate pieces more durable.

    What makes you happy?

    Oof. This is a deep question. I mean, this is what everyone is searching for right? 

    I think part of starting this business was my search for this elusive “happiness”. For me, I think it boils down to freedom. Whether that is creative freedom with no constraints, physical/locational freedom, or freedom of time. Creating what I enjoy making, on my own schedule, and experiencing places that are different from where I grew up is what feels like happiness to me.

    • Range of about $40 – $200 with most pieces in the $60 – $100 range
