Designer I Love: Emerson Ryder

What do Kim Kardashian, Minka Kelly and I all have in common? We love to rock our Emerson Ryder Bella Bar Necklace! Last May, I featured Emerson Ryder’s fabulous, stackable, colorful, be-charmed beaded bracelets. (Check out that spotlight here). Now my simple spotlight has turned into full-out love. Designer Alana Sands takes her line to the next level with a new collection of necklaces. Simple, yet statement making…classic, yet with modern elegance, these six necklaces have us swooning. Clean shapes like a teardrop, a circle, and a bar are set in yellow or rose gold and then decked out with diamonds. These gorgeous pieces are wearable by day or night, which proves that the greatest styles always have versatility. Pair back to a cocktail dress or a plain black tee, you can do no wrong with this collection.

1. Emerson Ryder Bella Bar Necklace in Yellow Gold: Set the bar high. Appropriate for day, yes, but also enough sparkle for the night. Highlight your collarbone, the neckline of a simple dress or layer with other diamond pieces with the Bella Bar Necklace. Forever classic with its streamlined shape and sparkling diamonds.

2. Emerson Ryder Lacrima Bella Necklace: A teardrop, but there’s nothing to cry about with this gorgeous pendant necklace. 14-karat gold is studded with white diamonds and set on a 16 inch yellow gold chain. Fit for the red carpet or layered with your daytime pieces.

3. Emerson Ryder Bella Lacrima Vuoto Necklace: An iconic teardrop shape set with diamonds…modern enough for any trendsetter, yet classic enough to pass down for generations to come. The Bella Lacrima Vuoto is a statement necklace with plenty of sparkle. Try it over any LBD for iconic class.

4. Emerson Ryder Bella Bar Necklace in Rose Gold: When it comes to style, this necklace sets the bar. Rose gold and black rhodium come together in a single bar on a rose gold chain. This piece is a perfectly appropriate way to introduce diamonds to your daytime look.

5. Emerson Ryder Bella Grande Necklace: A circle of style. This extra large circle pendant is filled with yellow gold and set with white diamonds. Set in concentric circles, this mesmerizing necklace sets off any cocktail dress or brings the chic to a leather jacket and pair of jeans. Simple, yet stunning.

6. Emerson Ryder Champagne Foglia Necklace: Ideal for autumn, this delicate gold leaf pendant is set with rich champagne diamonds. With enough beauty to rival the changing leaves, this pendant has a natural charm that will be your go-to piece for the season to come. Set on a gold chain with wide links for a now look.
