Choker w/ Pearl, Chain & Spikes & Crystal Pendant ($528 US)

I’ve discovered that jewelry may be my passion in life. Nothing excites me more than amazing jewelry (not even shoes). I’m always looking for the next hip jewelry designer. I can never get enough.

I recently discovered Joomi Lim, and her pieces immediately put a smile on my face. I love the contrast between soft lady-like pearls and the hard edge of the metal spikes. There is something so elegant in the simplicity of the composition of the link chain and the spikes, the way they fit into each other so perfectly.

New York-based Joomi Lim began her fashion career as a make-up artist. She began making hair pieces and headbands (many of them were worn by Blair Waldorf) in 2008 under the name of Joomi NYC. She recently launched the “Joomi Lim” line of fine jewelry. The line is already gathering a loyal celebrity following, including with trendsetters Leighton Meester and Rihanna. All the pieces are handmade in New York.
