Trick or Treat!

Not long after we started working on our halloween window display at the boutique, we discovered all of the store gals have a secret (or not so secret...) love for all things HALLOWEEN! Scary movies, creepy music, and pumpkins made us seriously excited to bring Halloween to the store this week. Using some of our display materials in the back (and some awesome matte black paint for the pumpkins) we made our store front windows gothic and charming, filled with vintage Victorian mourning jewelry, Wendy Mink black crow cuffs, and some spider webs!

We apologize in advance if you walk in and the monster mash is playing, Marie has spider webs in hand, Alicia is drawing an articulate haunted Wendy Mink Jewelry store, or Megan is dancing to thriller, but we really couldn't help ourselves.

Come by this weekend to check it out!Psst... we also have candy! And we love to share...

Get in costume!

Halloween is quickly approaching and it seems everyone is trying to figure out their costumes! To make deciding what to dress as a little bit easier, we put together a Halloween costume guide, to show how some gorgeous Wendy Mink Jewelry and some of our vintage jewelry can help make your costume complete!

Have other ideas on costumes made complete by jewelry? We would love to hear them and put together the outfit in our blog next week!

The DRUZY Stone that Razzles

The Wendy Mink stone of the week is DRUZY!

The DRUZY stone is comprised of tiny quartz c
rystals that form within or on the surface of other stones.

Ever wonder how it gets its color and textured surface?
The most commonly found DRUZY is quartz (agate or chalcedony). All colors found in the DRUZY stone are natural. Most coming from non-quartz species of druzy gems, such as cobalto-calcite (hot pink), uvarovite (day glow green), and rainbow pyrite (multi colored) among many others.

The colors of DRUZY Titanium are very hot and intensely bright. It shifts from a bright hot purple to that of a neon deep blue with some shade of red. The colors differ with the change in the viewing angles. The texture of each DRUZY piece depends on the nature of the crystals themselves.

In the past, DRUSY minerals were little more than a curiosity, of interest to serious mineralogists, but its radiant enchanting looks have made it a fashion must have this season! Here at Wendy Mink we have a variety of DRUZY rings in all shapes, colors, and sizes.

See below for some before and after examples of the DRUZY titanium stone!

Before: Pink Cobalt Cal

Up and coming...

If you have been to our boutique, you have probably met Alicia! She is usually brainstorming blog ideas or setting up displays, and always wearing a great outfit- paired with some fabulous jewelry! What you might not know is that aside from all she does here at Wendy Mink, she is an extremely talented fashion designer, and has just completed her own first spring/summer 2012 line! With her look book now shot and complete, we thought we would put together some of Alicia's gorgeous collection with some of the jewelry here she loves so much. We loved pairing together the amazing back-lines with geometric shape earrings, and pretty powder blues with chalcedony rings and aquamarine earrings. We think it is a wonderful match!

The Basics

Most mornings we barely have time to pick out an outfit let alone put together some jewelry. Fortunately, you can always count on Wendy to make simple every day pieces you don't need to fuss over- these are your day to day, wear to work, don't-need-to-think-about pieces that are classic in the Wendy Mink collections and classic in your jewelry box! As an easy solution to your already stressful morning, we compiled some of our favorite current simple and classic pieces that are comfortable and easy to wear.

Drop Necklaces
Classic! A simple stone (or a few) that fall perfectly so that it is comfortable to wear but beautiful to look at. Time and time again we hear customers that love to wear these necklaces as their "every day" pieces, the necklaces they never take off and the basic necklace they can easily layer with. Whether it is a basic drop or a cluster, these gorgeous necklaces show off the stones without being too flashy.


Due to its classic round shape these hoop earrings fe
el light as air. The best part is we make them in a wide array of color combinations, from solid amethyst and ruby to ombre tourmaline. The stones are carefully wrapped in place and are small enough that regardless of the color combination- these can match everything. They come in 3 different sizes to boot- so you can pick the one that fits you best!


With just a little bit of dangle, these give just enough movement to show off the stones but are small and light enough they can be worn every day.

The perfect solution for those who want to have something small and simple on their ears without a lot of dangle, and the best option for those who are worried about heavy earrings pulling their earlobe down.

Have a favorite color or stone? Like one earring but wish it was just a tiny but smaller? We love doing custom orders to make it just right for you! For custom inquiries and for questions on any of the above items, please email store@wendyminkjewelry.com
