Ruth Barzel is a Northern Virginia-based jewelry designer who crafts pieces that are unique, but so very wearable. Fashioned with semiprecious stones, pearls, fine wire, and a variety of sterling silver and gold-filled chains, Ruth creates her jewelry line in her home-based office and sells it in boutiques around the DC area, in Michigan, and even Dubai. For those in none of those locations, her entire collection is also available on Etsy.

ruth barzel virginiaThis is not the first time I have featured Ruth Barzel Jewelry on my blog. Her collection is delicate yet makes a statement. Ruth hopes that her jewelry will add a bit of beauty to the lives of all who wear it and I think it does exactly that.  Ruth really cares about those who choose to wear her jewelry and hopes the pieces are worn for a long while. If your jewelry breaks due to a defect in materials or workmanship, contact Ruth and she will fix it at no charge. If it breaks due to wear and tear, she will also fix it for a small fee.

ruth barzel jewelryI am so excited that Ruth Barzel is offering all three pieces featured in this blog post as a gift to one Wardrobe Oxygen reader. The Long Gold Chain Necklace is 41″ in length with a clasp so it can be worn long, doubled, or even tripled or wrapped around your wrist. Made of matte goldtone brass, the necklace is tarnish resistant and lightweight. The Multi Strand Bracelet is mixed gold-tone brass and aluminum chains with an adjustable length for all wrist sizes.  It too is lightweight and tarnish resistant. The Abalone Teardrop Earrings are about 2″ in length and when you order you can choose from sterling silver or gold filled wire earwires.

    Her whole collection is so classy and everyday wearable -that simple long gold chain is perfect! My favourites are those abalone earrings and the sapphire teardrops. Her pearl pieces are stunning, but I already have so many.
    Agree with so many that you have modelled the jewellery to perfection with that simple sweater in such a flattering colour.
    Thank you for including your international readers in this one! (Fingers crossed…)

    I love how you styled the jewelry (which is lovely) with a bright sweater. You look warm and happy. It’s a very refreshing look after a weeks seeing people in grey and somber tones for winter.

    I LOVE the mixed metal necklace! I used to have a similar one from Baublebar but it tarnished and made me smell like metal, so I had to get rid of it. I would love to replace it with a higher quality version and might have to pull the trigger on this one from Ruth Barzel!
