Chanel Watches

I love the new Chanel Premiere Watch!  I think it would be a great addition to my watch collection and I would love to have a small watch that could easily transition from day to night.  The band is extremely comfortable because it is rubber, but has the appearance of grosgrain ribbon!  This watch is definitely on my wish list!
Chanel J12 White Ceramic-I bought this watch about 5 years ago and it has been the best investment!  It looks great with just about anything and can be paired with both silver and gold!

Meredith Marks

Meredith Marks creates her designs through the inspiration of her extensive travels throughout Asia.  She combines the practicality of multi- functional pieces with the raw natural stones that she uses and the culture and beauty of the places she visits.

Meredith uses 18 Karat gold, silver, precious stones such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds and combines them with semi- precious colored stones such as moonstone or amethyst.

While Meredith earned a graduate degree in both law and business at Northwestern University of Chicago, she felt the desire to pursue a creative business.  Meredith grew up on Oak Street and Michigan Avenue, the fashion center in Chicago, in a family that was always involved in fashion.  Meredith remembers her mother coordinating charity fashion shows and as a former model, Meredith has always been tied to the fashion industry which combined with her passion for jewelry led her to jewelry design. She has taken courses at the Gemological  Institute of America (GIA). 

Meredith resides with her husband and three kids, Reid (14), Brooks(12) and Chloe(10) in Chicago.

Meredith's line is available from the following websites on line:

The extremely talented James Barker has since passed away, but his pieces can still be found at Whitney Abrams in Chicago, IL.

Whitney Abrams

Whitney Abrams' high karat gold creations are a reflection of her love of the Renaissance aesthetic and her admiration for the technical abilities of the Ancients. Inspired by the rich tones of high-karat gold and intense hues of unique, precious stones, her hand-made pieces involve the wearer in an experience of regal beauty.

Her interest in intaglios and cameos has led her to develop relationships with several German carvers who provide her clients with custom carvings that connect them with Abrams’ creations on an unparalleled level.

Whitney has studied goldsmithing and exhibited her jewelry throughout the United States and Europe. Her work is included in a number of publications on the subject of jewelry as an art form and jewelry making techniques.

Whitney Abrams presents her collections privately to collectors throughout the country and at her boutique in Chicago’s Gold Coast, as well as online.

Welcome to Julers Row!

Hi!!  Welcome to Juler's Row, a blog all about jewelry and watches.  Each week it will highlight new designers, trends, and my favorite jewelry looks.  My love for jewelry and watches started at a very young age and has continued to grow as I have gotten older.  I love jewelry because it can connect you to a loved one, a different time period, and symbolize commitment.  The most exciting part of getting ready is adding jewelry and seeing how the right earrings can frame your face and how rings can adorn your hands and finish off your look.
