The High Rhode

Surfing the crimson tide? Feel a little bit like the Hoover Dam?

When Mother Nature pays her monthly visit, it’s best to draw attention away from your bloated parts with something a bit higher up.

Behold Robyn Rhodes designs. Colorful and feminine, Rhodes’s handmade jewelry makes you feel like a national attraction, even at your most seemingly un-alluring time of month. The necklaces, lariats, earrings, and rings are composed of beads, semi-precious stones, and freshwater pearls worthy of some serious sight-seeing.

Each piece is named after someone who inspired Rhodes, from her best customer to her best friend — like the Edrea, an elegant mother-of-pearl lariat named for (who else?) the artist’s mom. If you want to craft one in your own mother’s name, Rhodes gladly takes custom orders. So feel free to substitute Jessica’s stone for Alex’s style.

These beauties may even help accentuate the one positive PMS side effect.

Your Grand Tetons.
