I love jewelry as much as the next woman, but I really do not have a big collection of it. The few pieces I do have usually have special meaning or are more of a statement piece. Baroni is a green jeweler company based in California. For more than 20 years, artist and designer Sarah Baroni has created jewelry that reflect’s it’s wearer’s deepest feelings. So, for me, it just seems fitting that I enjoy wearing Baroni’s jewelry designs. In the spring, I had the opportunity to review their Lotus Garden Flower necklace and now from their latest collection — The Esmeralda Necklace.
I had a very difficult time choosing from their new designs, as so many of them I just found so beautiful. The Esmeralda necklace is made with faceted moonstone that is set in a carved sterling silver pendant on a cable chain. The cable chains that Baroni uses are so soft against your neck. You can barely feel them. I love that I am able to adjust the chain as well from 13 to 16 inches, depending on the neckline of the shirt I am wearing. The stone is so beautiful too and I love how it catches different rays of colors as it moves. This is truly an original!
If you are not familiar with the character Esmeralda from the Hunchback of Notre Dame, she is really a noteworthy character in my opinion. She befriends Qusimodo and is able to see beyond his deformed exterior. Baroni’s Gypsy Girl collection is meant to instill a sense of music, art & storytelling.
