Moving On and Getting Better.



Not an End…But A Beginning of So Much More

 For 18 years I have enjoyed serving Marin and our surrounding community. I have been so lucky to do what I do! It has always been my goal to bring cheer to all women, and help them to feel sexy, beautiful and, most of all, loved. Through conversation and hugs, Jewelry was and is my way of reaching people’s hearts.

I am really happy to say that even though Haute Jewels Corte Madera is no longer,  it is not the end for Haute Jewels altogether. We will be continuing to sell our most fabulous lines at Lindisima in Greenbrae, California. Lindisima has a reputation of specializing in ultra-premium fashion. Trunk shows, special events, designer samples, fabulous one-of-a-kind pieces at amazingly affordable prices, a perfect match for us! Owner Linda and I have been friends for many years and I look forward to complimenting her beautiful fashion with our beautiful Jewels. I am also currently in negotiation for a whole new store in Danville, California. Get ready ladies, Haute Jewels times-two is on its way!

We are still selling many of our fabulous Jewels online as well. So check us out HERE when you need that special gift, necklace, bracelet, earrings or ring. Still so much lovely being offered!

So we are not saying goodbye really. We are just Moving On and Getting Better. Love and many thanks to everyone for your support.

Love, Susan

Valentine’s Comfort Zones

 A gift for every stage of a relationship at Haute Jewels

A Gift for Every Relationship Zone

It is Absolutely adorable when a young man, maybe 12 or so, comes into the store, usually with his mom. He gets a little fidgety and tells us he has a “friend” he would like to get a Valentine’s gift for. We always help him feel comfortable and enjoy every moment of helping him find the perfect “First Crush” gift. Dogeared is a perfect line for this “Zone”. The XO Gold Dipped Ring or the Pearls of Love and Infinite Love necklaces say a lot without saying too much. We also really like this Bow Necklace coupled with these Bow Earrings by Crislu

“First Crush” Relationship Zone

Some years later he may venture in again, this time a little older and mature. He is still a little fidgety and kind of nervous, but this time he is in the “Smitten” relationship zone. He does not want to appear too eager, but we know this guy has eyes for only one girl. This zone could also apply to those couples who are newly dating and want to get a great gift that does not appear too serious. Crislu’s matching Pave Heart Necklace and Pave Heart Earrings are perfect. Chan Luu also has a lot of great choices that are hip and fun, like this Swarovski Crystal Wrap Bracelet, or this Opal Wrap Bracelet.  Whatever the gift, we make a point of making him feel comfortable and at ease.

“Smitten” Relationship Zone


One thing that makes us all smile is when we get the guy obviously in the “First Love” relationship zone. He is usually thinking diamonds or a stand-out piece that will catch her eye. Studs, bracelets, rings and necklaces all fit in this category, and come in many different price ranges. For the man looking for stand-out statement pieces, this beautiful pink Morganite Rhea Ring is perfect, as well as this stunning Pink Trumpet Ring. This Avalon Earring and Necklace set is subtle yet sophisticated, and these London Earrings will make her eyes sparkle. Diamond studs always do the trick, and we just love these simple Heart Shaped ones.

“New Love” Relationship Zone


No matter what age, twelve, twenty or thirty-five, guys that come into the store are the most at ease. We always try to soothe and comfort them into making the right choice, especially when it comes to their engagement ring. The “Pop-the-Question” Relationship Zone can be the most exciting time in your life. This year The Halo is the true ringer for the happy bride to be. We also love Leo Ingwer and his magnificent handcrafted line. This Enveloped Engagement Ring or Eternity Engagement Ring are both timeless and classy.

Haute Jewels does custom engagement rings. We can find the diamond and setting, and customize it however you like. Prices range from $1500 to your heart’s desire. A few examples of what we can do to make her ecstatic below (check out the 4 carrot stone with additional smaller diamonds that we just created. A very serious Valentine present for a lovely lady).

Flash Forward to Spring


It seems like this year we didn’t really have a fall, with a 72 degree January and no rain in sight, we are already thinking it is time to Flash Forward to Spring. It looks like the Pantone Fashion Trends are thinking the same thing.

We think beautiful evening sunsets and warm sun when we see the color of Spring 2014, Radiant Orchid. If you are wondering what to pair with this outstanding color, think stones of meaning and passion, and intricate gold and silver details.

Flash Forward to Spring with Haute Jewels

Moonstone, the stone of wishes, intuition and balance, will bring you everything you need! This beautiful Moonstone Statement Ring by SD Jewelry Designs, or these elegant and simple Theia Earrings by Robindira Unsworth, can help unblock “stuck” feelings and bring you closer to your feminine side. The moonstone will help you achieve a balance between heart and mind. Your emotions will remain stable, while your sense of intuition grows.

Moonstone and Lapis Choices

Pair your moonstone with Lapis, like this Melinda Maria Cassie Gold and Lapis Bangle or this Danhier Night Sky statement ring,  and you have the perfect combination for femininity and Truth. Lapis is known to stimulate consciousness and bring about harmony in relationships. It is considered the stone of truth and friendship. So imagine wearing these together on a sunset evening, you will not only be flashing forward in trendy style, but, you will have an amazing evening full of inspiration and balance. You just might receive your hearts desire, and you will know that you are a part of “all that is”!

Find all of these items In-Store or Online with us at Haute Jewels. Check out our other Flash Forward to Spring picks HERE as well. Be sure to follow us on our Social Sites as well, we announce exclusive deals often, and when we say deals, we mean deals!

Winter White Love

winter white love at haute jewels. Anna Beck and UNO DE 50 featured


Whether hanging in Vail or Snowbird, or even in Squaw Valley, you want to look chic and stay warm. Winter Whites paired with Silver is the way to go. Silver is so versatile, and it offers so many options in size and style. There is the simple silver band or bangle or the ornate evening wear necklace, from small stud earrings to drop encrusted ones with stones. You can wear it big and heavy to add an edgy feel to an outfit, or light and delicate for a little bit of bling. The choices are endless.

It is timeless, affordable, easy to care for and a great gift!

Here are some of my picks for this Winter White Season!

I say pair a Winter White Sweater with leggings, and some amazing boots. You can add some Chunky Silver, like UNO DE 50, if you want to turn heads. Or you can layer it up with Boho Glam pieces, like Anna Beck.

Also try a Ribbed Thick Sweater paired with your dark skinny jeans, and a biker boot. Very Rocker Chic when you add in the Immortal Bracelet and Tornado Ring by UNO DE 50.

Haute Jewels Chunky UNO DE 50 skinny jeans paired with Biker boot and cable knit sweater.

Immortal Bracelet and Tornado Ring available at Haute Jewels


For a romantic, classy look. Do a Cashmere Sweater with sleek leggings, head to toe, one tone. Add a thick cuff and layer a long and a short necklace. You can also do lots of bangles and fab earrings. Anna Beck would fit the bill perfectly!

Haute Fingers: Yes You Can!


Yes You Can!

Have you ever loved a fashion trend but don’t know how to get it right?  Susan Murray, owner of Haute Jewels, can show you how to do the famous layering look that is so on trend right now!

Years ago Susan met a gal at an L.A. Showroom that was the busiest place in the building, and she picked up a few beaded necklaces.  Little did she know she had just met one of the hottest fashion designers in Jewelry. Now 10 years later, Susan and Robindira Unsworth still remain friends, and she now buys lots of layering rings and necklaces, because this line is her personal favorite.


Robindira has the hottest and latest trendy stones like moonstone, pyrite and Labradorite. She has created her own flair by oxidizing the prongs that hold the halo of Cz’s that bring the natural stones to light and bling! This is her Slice of Heaven Collection that we are featuring at Haute Jewels Nov 6th-10th, which believe me, on their own or stacked in any combination are absolutely the ultimate statement!


Smokey Topaz, a luxe chocolate brown stone, mixed with a soft Rose Quartz, is beautiful for you feminine gals, or a Labradorite and Moonstone mix, is perfect for you magical types, and if you live in a land where spirituality is the thing, try a Pyrite and Labradorite Mix, the stones of spiritual awakening.

Anyway you mix Robindira stacking rings, you will get it right, because this is the “Yes” line that gives you a super Haute look!

Let’s put our heads together and create the best looking fingers for you. Join our Facebook Event for daily “Deal of The Day” announcements, then come into Haute Jewels during our trunk show and get an extra 20% off!

Coco Got it Right: Pearls of Wisdom

Coco Got it Right


An Icon, a woman ahead of her times, and one of the worlds most famous female entrepreneurs.  Coco Chanel started with nothing and built her life in fashion with tenacity and innovation.

Like Coco, you can look modern and fresh wearing pearls, but make sure it’s lots and layered!


Here’s how to look like a million, or just feel like a millionairess:

Start with a 60″ 8mm to 10mm pearl strand, and wrap it several times around your neck.  Up to 3 if you like.
Add a chunky baroque pearl necklace with some gold chains
Layer it up with as many sizes of pearls to fill in the gaps

Voila!, you are now a woman of the year 2013!


Majorica pearls can help you achieve your look, without breaking the bank.  These man-made organic pearls are glass bead based, and have the correct weight of a pearl, they come in all lengths, colors and sizes.

Haute Jewels is featuring Majorica Pearls on Friday Oct 25th at their Town Center Location. Join our Event on Facebook and you will automatically be entered to win a pair of Fabulous Baroque Pearl Earrings! Come get all pearled up, and don’t forget to ask Haute Jewels owner Susan, how to get the look!

Haute Fall Fingers


Deck Out Your Digits!  

As if layering your necklaces isn’t enough to think about, let me talk about a ring stacking strategy that is in the now.

Whether you like a ring on every finger, your bands stacked to your knuckle, or one big statement on your pointer, rings are definitely a must have this fall.


Some of you may have noticed that Druzy, the sparkly Stalactite mineral, seems to be all over the place. Iridescent items are all the rage and I am loving this trend.  Either sparkling in CZ’s or the Maximum sparkle of Druzy, fall is all about creating allure shining at every angle.

My picks are sure to please: 

Fabulous Azaara Labradorite in oxidized prongs surrounded by Cubic Zirconia, S.D. Designs flashy Druzy, and Melinda Maria All Dressed in Sparkles (above pic).  Three of my fave designers, all available at Haute Jewels

Let’s see what rocks you can rock this fall.

Stop in and I will help you find the best Haute Jewels for your Digits!
