For most of us, it’s been about a month of working from home and sheltering in place. The silver lining for many of us is that leggings are now officially considered work pants – yay! As we all adapt to this new season, our wardrobes are also adapting with us to somehow strike a balance between “boss babe” and “comfy chic.”

While we’re certainly taking a break from business casual, there’s also something about changing out of your PJs that helps jump start your productivity! Lately, my go-to style these days consists of: knit joggers with a knotted tee and sneakers; a cropped sweatshirt with high-waist leggings and a leopard headband; or maybe a graphic tee paired with a denim jacket and blue light glasses. Just the right amount of comfort and style to help you blaze your way through the workday!

Premier Designs also has perfect solutions for when you need to be a little more polished on top for Zoom work meetings! Keep your leggings and slippers on, but add a neutral button-down top, roll up the sleeves, and grab a statement necklace like the “Offshore,” “Island Vibe” or “Santa Rosa!” Or add some effortless style with the “Grace Bay” earrings or “River Valley earrings.” These pieces will make you feel like you’re miles away from home on a beautiful beach in paradise. And are sure to add some much-needed sparkle and excitement to your day!

Spring is in the air and Premier Designs has you covered! Cruise your way through the new Spring Style Sets to add some flair and sunny style to your wardrobe. Not only do these Style Sets make it a breeze to create the perfect outfit, but when you purchase these pieces together, you also save 10%!

If you can’t currently get away to the beach, bring the beach to you with the “Beach Getaway” Style Set! These lightweight, matte metal designs are a quick and easy addition to your outfit and pair with anything! Style this set with a bright bold top tucked into some high-waist jeans and your favorite pair of sunnies for an effortless “off-duty model vibe.” Or pair it with a bright, flowy midi skirt and a cute clutch for a flirty carefree look! Either way, the matte, silver-plated “Getaway” earrings are both classic and modern – the perfect way to add a little polish to a trendy look without going overboard. And the delicate “Just Beachy” necklace pairs beautifully with any neckline, adding just the right amount of coastal charm.

Or go bold with the “Island Time” – a striking necklace and earring set that blends the allure of the turquoise sea with the exotic blaze of coral sunsets. This style set beautifully compliments any look – from a classic white tee paired with light wash denim and white sneakers for daytime errands, to a flirty off-the-shoulder dress when it’s time to dance the night away! Add your favorite coral lipstick for a pop of color, and prepare to be whisked away to a faraway land of seaside bliss!

Inspirations behind our latest collection, Spring!

As the days get longer and our visions of vacation take shape, we find ourselves dreaming of the sun, the sand and the sea. What better way to kick off our journey than in the Caribbean? Think endless beaches, sun-kissed hair, and ocean breezes. Our first stop is Turks and Caicos where we drew inspiration from sea-life, soft, watery hues, nautical design elements, and breezy styles with worn silver finishes.




Inspired by sunken treasures, our Just Beachy necklace features coin-shaped drops that are smooth on the front and lightly hammered on the back for subtle versatility. While our Getaway earrings offer a modern take on the classic hoop. And what’s a tropical vacation without color? Our Island Vibe bib necklace boasts genuine wood beads and a worn silver finish to soften the look. Our simple threader earrings and Tidal ring offer an everyday style with a pop of turquoise color. Our mixed-media Offshore necklace featuring woven chain details, metallic and hemi-undertones softened by the opalescent& turquoise colored stones. And, last but not least, our Grace Bay earrings feature a watercolor, dip dye effect for the perfect color chameleon.




Still basking in the sun, sand, and sea, we bid goodbye to the Caribbean and set our sights on Panama. Known for its natural beauty, vibrant music, and culture. The combination of leather details, hammered surfaces, and oxidized metals, best describes our new genuine leather Sandbar bracelet with interchangeable buttons.

Inspired by off-the-beaten-path market finds, Keyed Up acts as a fun bracelet and offers a unique way to keep your keychain organized. Plus you can hand stamp the removable leather tag & simply wear on a long chain for a super chic look.

Our Pacific Coast necklace truly embraces color from the layered chain down to the vibrant tassel with removable charms. Throw on our magnetic Canal bracelet and hand-woven Tropic earrings and you're ready for almost anything. 




Back in the states, we fell in love with everything Sonoma has to offer. From art galleries to 19th-century adobe buildings and farmer’s markets, this historic city in northern California inspired us with natural details, unique beading, semi-precious styles, and rich colorations.

Inspired by artisan techniques, our Bodega Bay necklace & earrings feature intricate beadwork and neutral seed beads allowing for easy styling with gold and rose gold pieces. The color-blocked pattern of our Spring Lake necklace which offers an ombre of ethereal glass beads in easy to pair color-ways. For an everyday statement, reach our Gallery earrings with a satin handmaid finish. Our Santa Rosa necklace offers versatility with removable strands of matte artisan beads for a look that’s bold and romantic.




No matter where your travels take you, nothing beats the comfort of home sweet home. From splashes of color and sentimental silhouettes, our new sterling silver collection offers delicate, everyday looks you’ll love. Our Enlighten necklace with sterling silver chain features a handcrafted cross pendant with bezel set stones. Also in our new sterling silver collection are our Remember earrings with removable cross charms, our Go To earrings, Forever Ring and colorful Summer Fun bracelets.

At the start of the New Year, January is always filled with a long list of ambitious goals, resolutions, and aspirations . . . many of which are often forgotten by February!

This year, instead of spending time checking goals off the list, what about choosing a Word of the Year? Maybe it’s a word that describes something that you’re praying for, or something that you’re asking of God. Or, maybe it’s something He is asking of you!

Premier Designs new personalized collection has the most beautiful inspiration for some words for 2020! These new pieces are the perfect addition of style and femininity to your wardrobe, as well as profound meaning. Choose either the “Perfect Length” necklace chain or “Like a Charm” bracelet to start, and then add on some beautiful antique gold or silver charms as elegant reminders of the promises of God.

Start building your new piece of jewelry by adding on the “Blessed Beyond Measure” reversible charm with the inscription, “More Precious Than Jewels” on the back, or the “Chosen” reversible charm that also reminds you that you are “Blessed.” The “Thankful” charm adds a touch of glamour with one side showcasing rows of crystals, and the other side hand stamped with the words, “thankful,” “grateful,” and “blessed.” These hand-stamped pieces come in either antique matte gold or antique matte silver, so they will pair perfectly with everything, and are sure to elevate your style as beautiful additions to your wardrobe!

No matter what season God entrusts to us to walk through, we can have hope and faith in knowing that the Lord walks with us every step of the way. The “Hopeful” and “Faith” charms are the perfect finishing touches to your outfit that will also help keep your mind and heart anchored on that holy promise. All of these pieces will not only add unique style to your wardrobe, but they are also sure to be excellent conversation starters and profound reminders of God’s sovereignty, love, and faithfulness!

With Christmas around the corner, most of us are busy decorating our homes, shopping for gifts, baking treats, and checking things off our lists! However, with all the hustle and bustle, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the beauty of the season, and remember that it’s not about how we decorate on the outside, but rather the love and joy that overflows from within.

As God gave us the greatest gift through the birth of His son Jesus, we are called to multiply and magnify His love through our grace and generosity. Premier Designs was founded for that exact purpose of giving back, as Christ so lavishly gives to us.

We want to THANK YOU—Jewelers, customers, Gem Members who shopped with us November 22-30. Last Tuesday which has become known as Giving Tuesday, for every $100 spent, Premier Designs donated a beautiful piece of jewelry to a woman in need so she would have the opportunity to feel beautiful and special, or to wear for a job interview, or give as a gift to others that she otherwise couldn't afford.

During this promotion we received 4,176 orders over $100 which means we are donating 4,176 pieces of jewelry to women's ministries and organizations across the country! So, THANK YOU for giving through Premier!

"Giving without expecting anything in return blesses everyone involved."

 Co-founder, Andy Horner

We hope today as you surround yourself in both, Thanks and Giving, you are able to take time to count your blessings—not just today, but everyday. Carving out even 5 minutes a day to reflect on how much God has blessed us (even if the blessings came disguised as a challenges) will help us remain grounded during the Christmas season.

If you’re looking to skip the crowds this year, we can help. We have 2 great specials going on through November 30th! Our Gem Member special offers 30% off every purchase through Saturday! If you’re not a Gem Member, talk to your Jeweler today. You’ll always enjoy at least 20% off jewelry every time you shop and  free shipping on orders of $75 or more.

We’re also donating a piece of jewelry to women in crisis for every order of $100 or more through November 30th through our Stylish Giving Special. From local emergency shelters for women and their children who are facing domestic abuse to Dress for Success, which helps women seeking to escape poverty, abuse and more.

Talk to your Jeweler today about how you can take advantage of these great specials.

As the days feel shorter, the holidays closer, and our schedules crazier than ever, it's easy to feel overwhelmed this time of year. (After all, that Thanksgiving turkey won’t cook itself!) As we approach the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we all want to be intentional and focus on what’s really important. Here are five tips for staying grateful!

JOURNALING. If the thought of jotting down your feelings seems like a lot of work, fear not. Start small by just writing down one thing you’re grateful for each day and see if you can work up to more.

PRIORITIZING. There are only so many hours in the day and some of those already include eating & sleeping. Before committing to every bake sale, PTA meeting and holiday party, fill your calendar with what is most important to you. Then, schedule accordingly.

This year, instead of a spread worthy of its own Instagram feed, how about a fun potluck that includes a few invites to those who can’t be with their family this year? Create a dish-list sign up that makes for a truly the-more-the-merrier occasion.

So. Many. Gifts. Why not draw names instead or exchange hand written cards or framed photos? You’ll spend less time fighting crowds and chasing sales and more time with those you love. And if you need help with those gifts, talk to your Jeweler who can help you with selection, gifting, and delivery! 

Sometimes it's as simple as looking down and having a gentle reminder to focus on gratitude. Even if it's a hidden message like our new Parker Bracelet set with our count your blessings inscription.

With Christmas around the corner, get a head start now and skip the stress of December shopping so you can relax and enjoy the holiday season! Premier Designs has made it easy for you this Christmas season by carefully crafting the most exquisite, highly versatile pieces that will top off your holiday outfit with the perfect dash of sparkle and glamour!

The “Olivia” set is perfect for adding a little unexpected edge, and has the power to transform your favorite holiday outfit into something fresh off the runway from New York Fashion Week. Be prepared to turn heads with this beautiful, hematite plated crystal lariat earring and necklace set. Pair the necklace with a V-neck top or jumpsuit for next-level drama – and you can also wear it long, or wrap it twice, tie it, or wear it short to flatter any neckline! This would also make an amazing gift for that special friend, sister, or coworker who is always on trend!



From ancient Chinese royalty, to early modern history icons like Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn, pearls have been a timeless symbol of class, elegance, and luxury. Channel that same sophistication into 2019 with the beautiful “Elizabeth” necklace. But this is no ordinary strand of pearls. The “Elizabeth” puts a modern twist on a classic look by intertwining removable strands of pearls that are both large and small in size, with a shiny and matte finish. Add it with a cream eyelash sweater half tucked into a midi skirt with a red lip, and you’re all set for a kiss under the mistletoe!


Also, this is the perfect time to become a Gem Member! With your Gem Membership, you will receive 20% off all purchases year round, free shipping on all orders over $75, and exclusive members-only perks for only $39/year. Who wouldn’t want 20% off on all your Christmas shopping?! Wrap up the year with a big bow by treating yourself to Premier’s Gem Membership because you’re a gem and you deserve it!

Executive Director, Dana Grimes shared this at our 2019 Christmas Capsule LIVE EVENT. Watch the replay >

I love fall and winter fashion! From velvet, leather and sequins to combinations of hot pink and red, pistachio and lavender, the varieties of fabric and colors are plentiful. You’ll also see fun textures like croc and snakeskin.

The 2019 Christmas Capsule is your perfect complement to all of these trends. 

It’s like the bow on the top of a gift. The tissue and wrapping paper are important but the bow is what makes it special!

There are 13 new pieces in the collection, and 5 of those are necklaces, which form the core of the capsule.

The first is the Meg necklace, which I will be wearing on repeat! It’s a two-tone necklace with three strands that can be worn together or separately. The medallions create a classic feel and the matte two tone, layering and hematite facets make it modern. I call this the must have work to weekend staple.




Our second necklace is called Heather, which is a handcrafted Artisan piece that you will wear for years. It has gray and navy beads with hematite crystal stations, and a removable pendant with faux mother of pearl and hematite crystals. This is perfect for wearing with warm or cool tones in your closet. The Heather necklace will wear well with the Bourgeoisie style that was all over the fall runways- think moody florals, geometric patters, slouchy boots and midi dresses. Wear long with the pendant or just the chain doubled for a friendsgiving or cookie exchange.

You're going to love the next necklace, Elizabeth. Someone once said a woman needs row and rows of pearls and Coco Chanel made pearls a must have for women in the 21st century. Well, the Elizabeth necklace has 5 removable strands in polished and matte graduated pearls and is perfect for short wearing with a tweed jacket or long with a retro blouse for the office.



Olivia is another necklace with amazing versatility. It's a 4-strand lariat with hematite plating and offers a dramatic and fashion forward style. Recently, I was in a clothing store that caters specifically to red carpet events at awards shows. This necklace was the only style they were showing. However, it's easy to take it from a dressy red-carpet look to a more casual, street festival style by wrapping the lariet as a choker.

The final necklace is a showstopper called Jackie. With 15 faced geometric stones that complement every color in your wardrobe, you really can use the necklace to dressed up or down with help from your earrings. It's beautiful on neutrals and worn it tone on tone. Try it for a Thanksgiving gathering, or wear it to brighten up your GO-TO ALL BLACK outfit. Do you have tickets to the Nutcracker this season or a special Christmas concert? This is the perfect necklace to make last year’s cocktail dress feel new again. Or pair it with a pretty silk blouse and winter white pants for Christmas dinner.

Well now you have an entire collection that will look awesome with whatever you choose to wear to welcome 2020!

The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are changing, and pumpkin spice lattes are officially brewing… As we pull out the plaid and animal print to transition into cooler temps, here are some of the top jewelry trends that Hollywood’s stylists are betting on this fall!

Layering Necklaces
This is the perfect way to level up any look. The key to mastering this trend is to mix and match. Mix dainty stands with bolder chains. Pair gold with silver and gunmetal with rose gold. Add this to a simple black or white crewneck tee and a pleated mini skirt or plaid trousers to instantly elevate your outfit.

The Modern necklace has an adjustable closure that will flatter every neckline. Or mix it up with the Just a Touch necklace by either wearing the top strand alone, or the bottom strand for a more elongated look, or wear all three together!

Statement Earrings
Dress up a casual outfit instantly with some statement earrings! Wear with your hair up in a topknot or high pony, or pinned back in a low messy bun to show them off. This is the quickest, easiest way to add polish and sophistication to your look, while still looking effortless.

Grab the Go Bold earrings for Friday nights – wear the dark hematite side for the office, and then simply reverse them for some serious sparkle for a night on the town!

Stackable Rings
Add some personality to your look with some stackable rings. Just like with layering necklaces, the key to pulling it off is to combine styles you wouldn’t normally wear together. Mix solid metals with gemstones, or go dainty with bold rings. There are plenty of gorgeous options for you to choose from!

Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings are a classic statement piece without feeling over the top. These add a little edge to any outfit, while still being timeless. These pair perfectly with a turtleneck bodysuit tucked into some high waist jeans or tailored trousers. Add a sleek blazer or a biker jacket and you’re ready to rule the day!

The Fall 2019 Collection is all about embracing that fearless, warrior spirit! Animal print, daring twists, and modern statement pieces all bring a sense of unexpected edge and empowerment.

The Seeing Red or Wild Thing earrings add the perfect statement piece to any fall outfit. Pair it with neutrals, add on the Tigress bracelet and some delicate rings (like the Stackable or Forget Me Knot). These designs roar of confidence and boldness!

Also, you can easily remove the bottom part of the earrings and wear them for a simpler look! Top it off with a black wide-brimmed hat, a pair of chunky-heel booties, and add an unexpected edge with the Ultramodern ring.

The Safari necklace gives you two options to add some tribal flair to your look! Choose either the leopard print, or the gold etched side of the Safari necklace and contrast it against a white blouse half tucked in a pair of dark-washed jeans. Add on the Linear earrings with some Rebel or Forged rings, and throw on a faux-leather jacket over your shoulders to take a walk on the wide side!



Thursday, August 9, 2019


One of the questions we asked when designing the fall collection is who is behind the jewelry? Is she a mom, a teacher, a corporate executive, a college student, a Jeweler? What’s her style? Is she bold and fierce and always ready to make a statement? Or more refined and tailored, looking for pieces that ultimately pull her outfit together—or is she one who seeks inspiration in unique or sentimental pieces?

Just as jewelry takes shape in numerous colors, settings, platings—and too many styles to count, so does she. No one person is one-size fits all. All women are created with strength, courage, compassion and warmth, so our goal was to create a collection that celebrates each and every aspect of you—this wonderfully made woman! 

Explore our new Fall Look Book to see for yourself just how amazing this collection really is!

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? We understand!Shop online now!

And if you’re not a Gem Member—talk to your Jeweler about saving 20% on all your faves for a year and qualifying for free shipping!

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 

Whether we’re preparing dinner for our family, writing a thank you note, or texting a friend some encouragement, we use our hands every day to express our love and gratitude for the people in our lives. And more importantly, we are extensions of God’s hands as “His handiwork.” Through His power, we have the ability to use our hands to serve, love, and bless others! 

As our hands are designed to create beauty, what better reminder than to grace our hands with some beautiful pieces from Premier Designs! These lovely designs will add the perfect touch of simple sophistication, elegance, and polish to your everyday look. 

Classic gold tones pair perfectly with neutrals. Mix one or two statement rings with a sleek gold piece like the Infinite Bliss bracelet, or the More Grace bracelet, for an effortlessly modern look. Add it with a neutral top, a pair of skinnies, and a relaxed boyfriend blazer and you’re all set to conquer the day! 

Dainty crystals are just the complement for the fearless girl with a twinkle in her eye. The Adore ring and At Last bracelet add the perfect touch of glam for the bold and brave trailblazer. 

The perfect accessories for a strong woman with fire in her soul and grace in her heart – ready to love and embrace the world!
