HELLO 2020!! New Jewelry Collections From RudyBlu!

Wow! A new decade? Where did the last year go let alone the last decade? So many wonderful and difficult challenges that are a memory now. But I will carry those memories and lessons with me forever. In a good way. Even at the age of 53 I am still growing and learning mentally. I love this. It is never too late to start over or begin a new hobby, career, relocation, or lifestyle. I have had all of those activities happening the past year alone! Makes life interesting right? I personally am looking forward to the next year and beyond and seeing where life takes me and RudyBlu Jewelry in these adventures.

I have a High Jewelry Collection available later this month influenced by my mom's original wedding ring. I say original because about 15 years ago she did not know her ring fell down the sink in to the disposal. And yep, she ground it in to pieces. It was a wide band with a basket weave pattern and little diamond and sapphire stones around it. The gold was pretty thin and not strong enough to withstand the garbage disposal. She kept the pieces thinking some day she would have it remade but never did. Dad did get her a lovely new ring so not to worry! I have the original ring pieces now after she passed away this year. I just recently had the design and molds finished for the 2020 version of this ring. (Photo at left is the first new ring in the collection) As you know already, I love big statement jewelry. These rings and complimenting earrings will not disappoint. I also designed a gorgeous Initial Pendant in a sand blasted 14K gold and diamonds. 


I have always loved letter or initial pendants but I have never found any that I would wear. I knew what I wanted so now I have designed it and made it. Of course I started with the letter A that I wear every day. It is a big letter pendant just like I like it!rudyblujewelryinitialpendant14kgoldanddiamondletterpendantThe Initial Pendants are made to order and will be listed on my website soon!

My second new collection is called The Screaming Pearl. A modern take on pearls that are classy yet tons of fun.  Carved, enameled, colored and paired with gemstones and gold and silver. Yum! 

Stay tuned for some fun luxury from RudyBly jewelry to add some "gorgeousness" to your next year and decade. You deserve it. We all deserve it. Go Crush It!

Age Appropriate Jewelry For Women over 40!

Age Appropriate Jewelry For Women over 40!

To me personally, age is all about confidence. So really, age appropriate is what I call confidence appropriate. What ever you like and feel beautiful in is appropriate. Thank goodness we are in a time when age is becoming a non-issue. And thank goodness there is RudyBlu that makes appropriate jewelry for YOU to feel beautiful.

Society now dictates that no matter the body size and age of women, they are celebrated and embellished, not hidden and shamed. Search all of the gorgeous Instagram female Influencers out there with silver hair. Each has a loyal following of several hundred thousand people if not a million or more. Perhaps that is why I got an extra boost of creativity and excitement starting the RudyBlu jewelry brand at the age of 52.

I love big and bold jewelry. I design adventurous statement jewelry that stands out. Is it age appropriate for a woman over 40 and 50? Heck yes! It's what makes you feel confident and beautiful. Do you feel your best in cowboy boots and jeans or a dress and heels? For me it depends on the day or event, not my age. 

My age does not dictate my style. Nor should yours. Don't be age appropriate. Be confident appropriate!
