You'd probably feel similarly inspired if you frolicked amongst the sugar sand, turquoise lapping water & lush landscapes of St. Thomas, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands which is the home of Jules Smith Designs.
Run by husband-and-wife team Gina Nigrelli & Brian Smith, they use
only precious metals, semi-precious and precious gemstones...but in
keeping with the low-stress Caribbean lifestyle, they keep the line
wearable & the prices affordable. "A long way from urban civilization, our collection tells the story of fashion-forward souls dying to bridge the gap between metropolitan trendiness and the laid-back, organic vibe of the Caribbean," they explain.
Fans include Cameron Diaz, Lindsay Lohan, Drew Barrymore, Eva Longoria, Angelina Jolie and Nelly Furtado. Available at JulesSmithDesigns.com.
