When it comes to accessorizing, sometimes the best  option is to keep things to a bare minimum, literally.

Lucky for us, wearing all things simple is trending right now, and what makes us even luckier is that they are more affordable than every before. If you’re thinking simple means boring, you’re totally mistaken…Enter Gem & Blue. The seriously smart and creative brand that’s killing the game right now. For some serious inspiration take a gander below.

 

ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THE COLLECTION?

 

Krista Young: Intimate.

 

THE LINE FEELS REALLY SIMPLE. DID IT COME ABOUT ORGANICALLY, OR WAS THERE PLANNING AND A CONCRETE IDEA FOR HOW TO BEGIN?

 

In the beginning I simply created pieces that I wanted to wear, with high quality materials, but ones that weren’t outrageously priced. I wanted to make pieces that could easily be worn daily and that wouldn’t get in the way with every day activities. That is still the way I design my everyday pieces. With the S/F collections and with our new solid gold line, there is a lot more planning involved. I want all of the pieces to feel new and have a very distinct style. Finding different cut gemstones and interesting shapes with new styles of setting stones are all in the works for our new solid gold pieces that will be available in the spring.

IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE ONE METAL TO WEAR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

 

Currently I’d have to say gold, simply because it is such a rich colored metal and it’s timeless at the same time.

WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION?

 

Gem & Blue is named after one of my twin daughters. Her name is Gemma Bleu. My daughters are the reason I started this business, so that I could work from home and still be with them.

THE ONE PIECE OF JEWELRY EVERY GIRL SHOULD OWN IS…

 

The Staple Stud

, since it’s basically two pieces in one. You get our Tiny Bar Studs which are great just on their own, or you can add the staple back for a double-pierced look. It’s one of our top sellers because it’s a super versatile look being both delicate and minimal… but it also makes a statement. We hear from customers who wear it that they’re constantly being asked where they got it from!

ANY THOUGHTS ON WHAT IT’S LIKE TO START YOUR OWN BRAND? 

 

It’s very interesting and difficult to pull everything together to define what your collections and pieces mean as a whole. Having someone help with the process of creating a brand and pulling all of the ideas together is key.
