Elitaire Boutique || Binky & Lulu Earrings
Kayla chose Binky & Lulu earrings as a new addition to Elitaire because they are both sustainable and fashion forward. Binky & Lulu earrings are handcrafted in the Philippines from sustainably sourced mango wood; the are inspired by wanderlust and created for life.

Topiary Tree || Smokey Stacked Ring
We are loving this elegantly simple stacked ring. This smokey faceted beauty can grace our hands any day of the week! Head over to the The Topiary Tree for this and some other cool sparkly surprises.
Golden Griffin || Lauren Ferrell Necklaces & Audra Style Earrings
Suzanne just started carrying these beautiful sea-glass bead Lauren Ferrell necklaces at Golden Griffin! Lauren Ferrell Designs makes unique, handmade jewelry designed in Tyler, Texas (and 5% of their profits go to Mission of Hope in Haiti and the Dominican Republic). Layered or a single strand, we think they would make for a perfect summer necklace paired with a breezy linen smock!
Then these one of a kind, fun and funky, lightweight earrings by Audra Style give off the perfect summer vibes! And when we say one of a kind it’s true—Audra cuts the pieces used in her jewelry from larger pieces of wood, leather and acrylic. Every single one is just a little different, and all are made in North Carolina. But you can find them here in Huntsville at Golden Griffin!
Moderne Jouel || 1919 Necklace
Wendy told us that this beautiful sterling silver Vesta case came from an estate in England. In another life it held matches and hung from a pocket watch chain. Now it’s been paired with a 22″ chain of large cultured freshwater pearls. It is hallmarked and was made by Frank W. Cole in Birmingham, England in 1919. At 101 years old, the hand chased swirl pattern is work of art; paired with the beautiful pearls it is a one of a kind piece, and literally a Moderne Jouel! This beauty is now listed on The Scout Guide’s Scouted Products page—check out here: Antique 1919 Sterling Silver Vesta Case and Pearl Necklace.
