The sighting: Actress Ellie Kemper recently appeared on the Today Show in a blue dress accented with some delicate gold Alex Monroe jewelry.

The jewels: Kemper is wearing Alex Monroe’s Bluebell Drop Earrings and Garden Gathering Charm Bracelet.
The earrings feature handcrafted bluebell flowers in gold plated sterling silver with cascading blue iolite drops and are listed on Alex Monroe’s website for £174. The bracelet features handmade flowers, leaves, and bees in 22k yellow gold-plated sterling silver and is listed on the brand’s website for £240.

The trends: A little too sweet and subtle for BoHo, these pieces fit perfectly into a trend I discovered through TikTok: Cottagecore. It reminds you of sun-soaked meadows and tiny sandwiches and all things cute and nice and pastoral. It’s anything you’d wear to a tea party where you might meet a fairy.

What do we think? I think this is absolutely perfect for bubbly, sunshine-ey Ellie Kemper. The subtle glints of gold both flatter and enliven her coloring, while the lovely little flowers echo the sweetness of the actress’ public persona in a way that is charming, rather than overbearing.

If this were a red carpet, I would say the jewels are too small. But for a daytime tv appearance, they’re just right.

Judgement: 13/10 for a lovely, subtle, well-matched jewelry choice

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
