Taylor Swift Wears Red Heart Earrings in a Video for Her Red (Taylor’s Version) Album

Her earrings are on target with the trend towards hearts in all categories and not only for Valentine’s Day.





NO, YOU AREN’T imagining it. I have already written about Taylor Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version), and I noted her friendship with jewelry designer Cathy Waterman’s daughter Claire Winter Kislinger. Kislinger gifted Swift the “Love” ring by Waterman in platinum and diamonds. Swift wore it all through writing her original Red album, and then she had an idea — to ask Waterman to design the ring with the word RED instead of LOVE in the center. The ring was ready in time for Swift to wear on the cover of Red (Taylor’s Version).

But I held something back — well, a few things. In her video for the song “I Bet You Think About Me,” Swift wears all red at an all-white wedding. I held out to write this closer to Valentine’s Day.

Blake Lively, who directed the video, lent Swift her own heart ring in rubellite and diamonds designed by Kirsty Stone for Retrouvai. Talk about jewelry taking center stage.

But even more trendworthy for jewelry devotees are the heart earrings that she wears throughout the video. Designed by Nak Armstrong for his Nakard collection, they are ruby hearts in sterling outlined in deep red enamel and darkened rhodium.

The red hearts aren’t just a nod to the upcoming holiday that is associated with fiery romance and red. These earrings are also part of a trend of hearts being chic and cool again. The heart stud is trending in various colored gemstones, as well as in metals and diamonds. Swift might have not initiated the trend, but she sure is perpetuating it with her fans.

As much as we are seeing the heart in earrings, we are seeing it in rings as well. And don’t let it get by you that Lively lent it to Swift. Women who are not passionately involved are celebrating each other, and the heart has become a symbol of love in friendship as well as in romantic relationships.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
