The 10 Essentials: #10 The Lariat Necklace

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This is the last Hitchcock Essential of the season, but it’s a really good one – the Lariat Necklace. Delicate, but exciting! Wear it in or out of your shirt. Super sexy – with a bikini, yesss gawd! We love a good Lariat Necklace and we bet you don’t have one.

lariat1

Imagine this delicate silver and pyrite chain with a white bikini – so good!

lariat3

This piece by Xenia Mara is both a Lariat and Statement Necklace – you really can have it all.

lariat4

A simple gold lariat by Loren Stewart is the perfect way to add some sparkle to s simple T-shirt.

How amazing does this lariat make your neck look! We love the combo of gold and labradorite.

 

That wraps up our 10 Hitchcock Essentials. What do you think, did we leave any out? If you need to fill in any gaps in your 10 Essentials jewelry box, you know where to find us!

Happy Holidays!

The 10 Essentials: #9 The Gold Bangle

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Hitchcock Gold Bangle Cuff.  A true essential!  Picture Grace Kelly dressed all in white, boarding a yacht in the South of France with no other jewelry other than one simple gold bangle. So pretty and simple on it’s own, sweet when paired, down-right fierce when stacked all the way to your elbow!

This one comes in two sizes – wide or thin. Why not one of each?!

bangle-cuff

Pile them high!

The Gold Bangle is also a fun way to add contrasting metal to your current bracelet situation. This Hitchcock Essential makes the perfect holiday gift – of course you could keep one or two for yourself. We promise not to tell!

The 10 Essentials: #8 The Layered Necklace

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized, Xenia Mara.

Okay, I have to admit that this may be my most favorite and most essential of all the Hitchcock Essentials. I LOVE a serious layered necklace. They are amazing on their own but even better as a base piece that you layer another necklace over. (It makes you look like a layering genius but it is dead easy!) As far as we’re concerned, nobody does the Layered Necklace better than our friend Xenia Mara. Her pieces are stunning on their and traffic stopping with something fierce over the top.

Xenia Mara shiney goddess layers, amazing on their own …

layer3

… even better layered with the Xenia Mara rock crystal Statement Necklace.

layer4

… or layered with our Hitchcock pearls.

layers1

It even works with delicate pieces. Xenia Mara delicate labradorite layers, so pretty …

layer5

… but when layered, a little edgy! Love how the black diamond in our Hitchcock Shield (a favorite second skin layer) looks against the dark vintage chains.

layer6

… and, of course you can never go wrong with our signature Hitchcock Heart.

 

As I’m writing this I’m wearing my very own Xenia Mara rock crystal stunner layered with Goddess chains – so I might be just the tiniest bit biased. But, if you do one Essential piece this season, make it a long layer. You won’t regret it – Promise!

Posted by & filed under Iosselliani, Mariella Pilato, Uncategorized.

I’m not certain where exactly the name comes from, but you just can’t deny that sipping a perfect cocktail is a fabulous way to show off your stunning Cocktail Ring. The way that huge stone catches the light as you raise your champagne flute, magical! No wonder it’s our Essential #7. Here at Hitchcock Madrona we are know far and wide for our signature Druzy Ring, an edgy take on the classic Cocktail Ring.  The gold version is especially on point for the holiday season.

The 10 Essentials: #4 The Cuff Bracelet

Posted by & filed under Gift Ideas, Hitchcock Madrona Signature, Inspiration, Signature Piece, Uncategorized.

You can always tell a Hitchcock Madrona woman, or man, by their fierce Cuff. Whether it’s sterling silver, copper, or bronze when you see one you know you have meet a member of your tribe. The HM Cuff comes in two sizes. Kristina likes to wear the small bronze version everyday, layered with her watch and a couple of bangles. Erica is rarely seen without the large in sterling silver, and Dustin has been wearing his copper cuff long enough that is has the patina of a lucky penny. You have your choice of leather color, black or dark brown. The durable leather strap gets better with age, it will soften and conform to your wrist the longer you wear it. Go ahead, pick a combination – wide sterling and black leather, thin copper and brown leather – and join the tribe.

A perennial favorite!  The wide HM Cuff in sterling silver with dark brown leather.

Who say’s you can’t layer our cuffs?!

No need to leave the gents out, our cuff looks just as good on him as her. Here, Dustin shows off a thin HM Cuff in matte sterling silver. He’s also sporting the Hitchcock Madrona signet ring.  Fancy!

The 10 Essentials #3 – The Stud Earring

Posted by & filed under Tiffany Kunz, Uncategorized, White/Space.

The stud earring – I know it sounds so …  basic. That’s exactly what we love about it! The simple stud can be paired with anything, works for day or night, and is an essential item in every Hitchcock Madrona woman’s jewelry box.

You can never go wrong with a classic pair of diamond studs. But, being Hitchcock, we’ve modernized this staple. The brushed bezel setting and black diamonds give these studs a bit of edge.

Posted by & filed under Dannijo, Gift Ideas, Inspiration, Lulu Frost, Uncategorized, Xenia Mara.

We’re all familiar with the 12 Days of Christmas but really, who needs all those birds … we might keep the five golden rings though!  This holiday season we’re bringing you the 10 Hitchcock Essentials.  At Hitchcock Madrona we believe that every woman needs ten essential items in her jewelry box – maybe 11 if you include a fabulous jewelry box!

Each post we’ll bring you a new Essential and some of the best versions of it.

Let’s get started with something big and bold – some of our favorite descriptors around here! The Statement Earring.  You know the pair – you design an outfit around them, you put them on for that extra special date night, you’ll put your hair up just to make sure everybody sees how fabulous they are, they make you feel like the best version of yourself.

We love Halloween here at Hitchcock Madrona. I mean, what’s not to love – dressing up in delicious fashions, playing with hair and makeup until it’s just right, and of course finding the perfect accessories to complete the look. This year we’ve taken it to the next level with an amazing series of photos by the talented Melissa Baerwald.

First up – our version of the Tim Burton classic Edward Scissorhands.
