Angelina Jolie Raises Eyebrows with Custom Face Jewelry: Judge the Jewels

She wore it at the Marvel Studios’ LA premiere of Eternals.

The sighting: Superstar Angelia Jolie attended Marvel Studios’ LA premiere of Eternals wearing a singularly striking piece of jewelry that formed a thick line of gold down the center of the actress’s chin.

The jewels: Jolie’s jewel is a lip cuff made by Austin-based designer Nina Berenato, who custom-fitted the piece to perfectly limn the lines of Jolie’s famous face. Paired with subtle earrings and an amorphous gown in a subtle hue, the 14K gold fill cuff makes Jolie look like the glamorous ruler of an alien planet who decided to drop by Earth for a change of scenery.

The trends: This kind of surrealist jewel will be too avant garde for many jewelry lovers, but there is absolutely an undercurrent of desire for this kind of unexpected, SciFi-esque style. A piece this daring will always be divisive, but take a peek at the designer’s social media and you’ll see thousands of likes and countless comments praising the otherworldly look. Priced online at just $50, this Nina Berenato lip cuff is a low investment way to try a high impact style.

Perhaps an eventual post-masking mass reveal of chins will lead to a previously unprecedented desire for face jewelry? Only time will tell.

Judgement: 12/10 for weird alien beauty, 7/10 for real life wearability (could it really be comfortable?)

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
