    Schlumberger: The Chunky Jewelry Designer Ready to Freak Your Bling

    In part, Schlumberger might have Jay-Z to thank. In the About Love campaign released by Tiffany’s last year, Jay Z wears a handful of Schlumberger’s best-known designs for the jewelry house: the Apollo brooch and the Bird on a Rock brooch, which features the aforementioned diamond bird—with ruby eyes, perched on an enormous yellow stone—as well as a corresponding pair of cufflinks. And it’s easy to imagine men gravitating towards those giant rings, blistering with gems. Already, men are shopping the Schlumberger-influenced works of the New York-based jewelry brand Prounis, which also nestles impressive stones into weighty gold bands.

    Breast Milk Jewelry for Mothers Weaning Their Babies

    Alma Partida knew her breastfeeding journey was coming to a close in June. She had nursed her daughter, Alessa, for nearly 18 months — longer than most mothers in the United States do — and the process had not been easy.

Once she and her daughter were discharged, nursing was still challenging. “It was a really long journey,” said Ms. Partida, a 29-year-old speech language pathologist in Watsonville, Calif. Now that it was ending, she wanted to find

    On a snowy Monday afternoon at a cafe in Hudson, N.Y., Malu Byrne and Rick Van Streain Low, partners in the jewelry line En Studio, were discussing how they work together. “If we aren’t 100 percent aligned on an idea or material, it’s a cue it’s not quite right and can get better,” said Ms. Byrne, 32.

    How Queen Mary Became the Royal Family Master of the Jewelry Makeover

    Queen Elizabeth can thank her grandmother Queen Mary for many of the most spectacular of royal jewels. Not only did Queen Mary amass legendary diamonds and gems during her husband’s reign, but the forward-thinking consort also repurposed jewels into contemporary new pieces. Nothing was too sentimental or historic for a refresh—not even a diamond wedding gift from her husband’s grandmother, the formidable Queen Victoria. Queen Mary was a champion of repurposing jewels, and it’s worth taking a lesson from her playbook on how to gracefully transform important stones into timeless pieces. She had an eye for gemstones—and a vision for
