Earth Month Day 13: Nugaard Designs

nugaard-jewelryWalt Whitman may have had Leaves of Grass, but Vanessa Abrams has leaves of gold. Since the CW is making us wait two weeks for a new episode of Gossip Girl—I know, major tears—I decided to take a look back at this season. I was enamored with the gold earrings Jessica Szhor’s character wore in “Pret-a-Poor-J.” The Spider Web earrings are a twist on the classic hoop, featuring a delicate gold-dipped fern caught in a web ($140). The green company, Nugaard Designs, has an array of grass and leaves dipped in precious metals, as well as jewelry with gorgeous gemstones. If you buy one of their leaf items, the Nugaard girls (Brazilian BFFs Alessandra Feio and Erica Pacey) promise to plant a tree through Trees for Future. I wonder if Vanessa requested hers to be planted in Brooklyn.
