Erica Molinari: New Work


I was just reading my original post about Erica Molinari from 2012, and so much has changed! First of all, I now personally know and adore Erica. I had the pleasure of sitting at her table at the Couture awards show in 2013, and she couldn’t have been more welcoming and entertaining. She is one cool lady. Seeing her at the show each year since then has been such a treat. Then…there’s her jewelry. Her line has exploded with new designs, and I have to share some of my favorites with you.

So first up, you have to see her work in enamel. I couldn’t get enough of the rings, which come in both white and black.

Some have patterns and others have sayings on them. (Did I mention she has bangles as well?) My personal favorite is this black one, which in Italian says, “A beautiful thing is never perfect.” Honestly, I got tears in my eyes when I read it. And not bad with my Polly Wales diamond band, right?

And take a peek at the details inside the ring as well.

Here are some more of her new rings, showing how intricate her designs are. Are they vintage? New? This is one of the awesomeĀ things about Erica’s line — they are modern interpretations of some very old themes, really adding character and depth to your jewelry collection.

This is a perfect segue to her Momento Mori pieces, featuring skulls, skeletons and such.

I have to say I’m a bit obsessed with this one, which features a skull behind a custom cut white topaz with black enameling on the sides.

Oh, right…the skeletons. Hello!!!! Have you ever seen anything like it?

Erica has also gone bananas with her stud collection. She told me she wants to have 50 different designs, and right now she’s at 47. I have an inkling she’ll be surpassing her goal in the not-too-distant future.

And of course, if adding a little bling is on your agenda, then enjoy these pave diamond rings.

    Reading this was almost as fun as having you introduce me to the woman…the myth…the legend…the olympian herself. Such a cool piece. Loved reading this, Amy. And I love the skulls and skeleton. Erica is on my must-see list for next Couture. xo

    Thanks for sending these. Sherry

      The enamel is so awesome, right?! Totally understand that skulls aren’t everyone’s thing, but that’s the great thing about personal style. There’s something for everyone.
