We share some of our favorite places from a recent trip to London.
A beautiful space with wonderful aromas,
Marylebone concept store Perfumer H creates bespoke seasonal fragrances.
In the heart of Saint James, Cafe Murano offers authentic Northern Italian
flavors from Michelin-starred Angela Hartnett.
Londoners are abuzz about the new wing of the Tate Modern, but it’s the Tate Britain, one of the UK’s oldest and most illustrious museums, that resonates most. It’s a quiet classic that never disappoints.
With multiple locations across central London, Fernandez & Wells is the perfect spot for a quick coffee, hearty sandwich or an excellent charcuterie plate.
London has an abundance of beautiful public parks but Saint James is a particular
favorite for its lakes and lush greenery.
As friends and fans of Apiece Apart, we were excited to collaborate with them on their beautiful Pre-Fall 2017 lookbook. Our Sequin Ring pairs perfectly with their effortless and minimal designs.
With summer on the horizon, our thoughts are turning to vacation destinations. Here we share some of our Paris essentials.
La Cave Du Septime, a wine bar housed in a converted shoe repair shop,
is perfect for small plates and an afternoon glass of wine.
The recently reopened Picasso Museum features over 5000 works of art,
including pieces from Picasso’s own personal collection.
A chateau-turned-hotel in the middle of the city, Saint James Paris boasts everything from stunning interiors to an award-winning restaurant and lush private gardens and spa.
When in Paris, make time to visit Au Passage, which offers beautiful bites and cocktails.
Ask for the Fever Tree Tonic and Maidenii Vermouth with lemon twist.
As huge fans of Solange, we were honored to see the boundary-pushing musician, artist and activist wearing the Kathleen Whitaker Stone Collection to an event for Coachella.
Solange wears the Kathleen Whitaker Chalcedony Earrings.
Spring is here. With cherry blossom season underway, we wanted to share some of our favorite spots in Tokyo.
Yaeca has a number of beautiful lifestyle stores in Tokyo, each worth a visit. Our favorite is the Yaeca Home Store, for its expertly curated mix of furniture and homewares.
Enjoy authentic Kaiseki cuisine at Kuroiwa, a beautiful and tranquil restaurant that offers a welcome respite from the bustle of the city.
Tucked in the backstreets of Ebisu station, Wine Stand Waltz is a must for a relaxed evening drink. A bijou wine bar, it has space for 10 patrons only, and serves natural wines from Europe and Japan in Baccarat glasses.
Situated in Meguro, south of Shibuya, Claska is one of our favorite hotels in Tokyo. A modern, minimal yet comfortable space, each of its 20 rooms is uniquely designed. The hotel also features a restaurant, lifestyle shop and an adjacent art gallery. A popular spot with discerning travelers, booking early is advised.
Ginza West is an old school Japanese tea room established in 1947. With it’s pristine white table cloths and silver service, it’s the perfect place for afternoon tea and cake.
Arts & Science stores are dotted throughout Tokyo, selling a well-edited selection of clothing, accessories and homewares. Highlights include vintage workwear and handcrafted textiles.
We have long admired Maggie Gyllenhaal for her bold acting roles and her activisim. We were honored to see her wearing Kathleen Whitaker jewelry for her recent interview with Apiece Apart, where she discusses balancing
family with work, and how to be an outspoken yet thoughtful advocate for rights that matter.

To help you plan your next trip to New York, a round-up of some of our favorite spots in the city that never sleeps.
Neue Galerie is a museum that specialises in early 20th century German and Austrian art and design. The building itself is as exquisite as the collection, designed by the same architects as the New York Public Library.
Named after Neue Galerie co-founder Serge Sabarsky, Café Sabarsky evokes Viennese cafés at the turn of the 19th century, from the vintage furniture to the light fixtures.
The Greenwich Hotel is a Tribeca landmark and a modern New York classic.
The Frick Collection houses a distinguished collection of Old Master paintings and European sculpture and decorative arts. It’s also worth visiting for the building, one of New York’s few remaining Gilded Age mansions.
Open in various forms since the 1920s, The Waverly Inn in Greenwich Village is a neighborhood favorite.
The Met’s new contemporary art outpost, The Met Breuer, opened it’s doors in the former Whitney Museum space earlier this year, giving new life to one of New York’s oldest art institutions.
The Carlyle Hotel is a New York classic, and has been charming visitors with its elegant, Art Deco interiors since the 1930s.
We were happy to partner with Ulla Johnson for both her Spring 17 New York Fashion Week show and her Spring 17 lookbook. Our Chalcedony and Large Gold Fan Earrings are the perfect accompaniment to Ulla’s feminine designs.
