I have watched episodes of Gossip Girl on Netflix countless times. The CW soap ended in 2012 and aired for 6 seasons. If you're not familiar with Gossip Girl, it takes place in the Upper East Side of New York City where the young Manhattan elite struggle to find their place in this world. When I re-watch episodes, it's not for the bad plot lines, love triangles and girlish scheming; it's for the inspiration I get when I see the stand-out jewelry pieces.
I'm not talking about boring diamonds and pearls; I'm talking chunky extravagant stone statement pieces that look like they weigh a ton. Turquoise, malachite, jaspers, agates, SLABS of stone...they wore it all. Over the next couple months, I'm going to share pieces I've created inspired by designs seen in Gossip Girl. In the meantime, below are some of my favorite looks.
