Hello Pearl!

Hello there-

As we say goodbye to summer it's time to take a peek inside our fall closets and see what we can still bear to wear....if the wallet is another kind of bear - as in bare- then we can certainly suggest switching it up with new accessories....and what better for fall-winter than the timeless pearl! This season Wendy dove into a 'warmer' pearl pool, we have sultry gray pearls, subtle champagne, metallic bronze....and a slightly dusky pink. Sometimes these pearl shades are a great alternative to white which can sometimes be difficult to 'modernize', (unless of course you are Rihanna who manages to pull off this completely fabulous pearl look below!). Here's some other fairly amazing pearl looks through the ages, which is your favorite? hard to choose!

This first strand is a hand-knotted necklace featuring wood, champagne and bronze pearls, we just love the juxtaposition of an ethnic type bead with a classic pearl, plus the colors work so well together for the coming might just keep this one forever, check in with Cerena our store manager to find out the details of this style:

If you like your pearls mixed with a touch of semi-precious here's a very pretty, classic earring; champagne pearls with a big ruby drop, gorgeous! This style currently resides in our members us on to become a member or to just make an inquiry.

We will leave you with this ultra-luxe bib necklace from our most recent collection, ain't it grand!
Whiskey quartz, citrines, gray moonstone....gorgeous, please email us with any queries....and we hope the rest of your week is a PEARL!

Wear it Well

Fall is here and it's that time of the year again when we re-assess our closets, shop for new goodies and assemble our new season's wardrobe. Since the Wendy Mink crew has a broad spectrum of styles, we'd thought it would be be fun to show you our Fall favs and how we would wear them!

Up first is our new production assistant, Anja's picks. Anja tends to go for simple well constructed pieces with interesting details. She's known to layer our delicate pieces such as this bio-chrysoprase necklace and her next jewelry buy would be this hand-cut Peruvian cuff.

Soho Boho

Next is another newbie to the company Diana, our new design assistant. Diana loves the idea of pairing an exquisite piece, like this multi-stranded pearl bracelet, with a simple t-shirt and jeans . It's the new casual-chic way to wear pearls!

Our store manager, Cerena, is a lover of our Peruvian line and would pair these filigree hands and sweet animal charm bracelet with an ethereal-boho look.

Known in the office for putting together great outfits with amazing vintage finds Amy, our PR and Web Manager, would layer these WMJ pieces with a funky ethnic sweater perfect for fall!

Last is our trendy shop girl, Kelley, her Fall picks embody her Brooklyn style- fashion staples with pops of color and bold prints. Our gold ornate cut out hoops and ruby cocktail rings would look good with any new fall dress!

We hope we gave you lots of ideas for new Fall looks and please contact us:

Runway time!

Hello! Well if you have any interest in fashion, (and we assume you do if you reading a jewelry blog!) then you will know it's fashion time! Here in NYC we have been over run with tall thin beauties all over the city, throwing their willowy selves into cabs and generally looking fabulous...on and off the's a fun week with plenty of great local stores holding special events. Friday night was definitely a good time in our boutique, Cerena, Gena and Anja spent precious time poking toothpicks through cheese and grapes while we cracked open bottles of wine and helped ladies to shop our bargain tables as well as choose current styles with a whopping 20% off! It was a fun night to be sure and we'd like to also thank all the other wonderful stores on Orchard St who helped make the atmosphere that much merrier.

We can't help but be drawn in by all the wonderful stuff happening on the runway, we know it's Spring '11 (hello long winter in between) but still it's nice to dream and see what colors will be around in the future. We just love the colors in this Lela Rose print dress above, and don't you think our fuchsia hoops would look just perfect with it! These hoops are hand-wrapped with gold-filled wire and feature faceted agate rondels, they are $85, please email us with queries:

Don't you just love the simplicity and creamy goodness of this Max Azria dress? So light and breezy, we thought our moonstone studs would look fairly great with it, not too much, just a hint of a jewel! We have not put our studs online yet but we hope to very soon, we also have a turquoise and a few other colors as we know some people do not really like a dangle, to order or inquire about our studs just email Cerena on: and she can help you out, they run for around $60 in the store and are all handmade.....pretty!

This stunning dress from A Detacher would work so well with many of our current pieces, we love the dusky pink tone mixed in with swipes of charcoal black, the colors just work so well together. We would love to pair this dress with our semi precious cluster of hazy labradorite and rhudilated quartz, there's a peach moonstone hidden in there too just for good measure. For queries about these earrings just email us, they are super duper new and not yet online!

Mmmmmm.....I think we won't accessorize this Malandrino outfit....wouldn't want to over do it!

What have your favorite looks been from fashion week? We hope you had a chance to take a peek at a few and highly recommend for late night browsing and drooling....

We will be back later this week with boutique updates (here's some of the new styles in-store above!) and more jewelry news...
