Erica Courtney

Post by Christine Webb

Erica Courtney - Drop Dead Gorgeous - and so is her jewelry! One of my favorite designers, Erica is a real gem of a lady.  She is bright, creative, confident, energetic and extremely talented - as well as big fun to be around!  I dream of the day when I own an Erica Courtney creation - hopefully a statement ring or fabulous earrings.  What sets Erica's jewelry apart is her feminine style that is expressed in each and every piece. From the filigree to the micro-pavĂ© work to the openness of the designs - they appear light and airy - reminding me of jewelry made during the early 1900s and the Belle Epoque period but with a fresh twist. Erica just makes colored stones pretty!  I'm usually focused on the gemstone, but Erica's pieces are true works of art and the masterful craftsmanship and sophistication of her designs have me swooning. I am so overwhelmed by her Drop Dead Gorgeous jewelry - I've selected several pieces as my Gem to Remember - I simply can't pick just one!

A sampling of fabulous rings - how could you choose just one?!
