Shop Like a Tastemaker with Jillian Sassone

The North County designer of Marrow Fine Jewelry shares her favorite things



Published:

Age: 37

Neighborhood: Cardiff by the Sea

Current job: Owner and designer of Marrow Fine Jewelry

Background: Brooklyn girl turned North County beach babe, who left the corporate hustle to launch her jewelry design company.

Fashion philosophy: Less is more; quality over quantity. “I don’t want a closet or house full of things anymore.”

Personal style: “I stick to neutrals. My pops of color are gray and rust! Accessories have always been much more exciting to me, so this palette lets me play up my favorite shoes, handbags, hats, and of course, jewelry.”

 

Her picks:

This San Francisco designer is a former architect, and there are so many thoughtful, gorgeous details in her work—like laser-cut herringbone! The Molly M Designs pouch 12 metallic wallet is buttery soft and doubles as a wristlet.

A cute under-the-radar brand out of Portland. Having two small daughters (ages 2 and 4), this sentiment is my daily mantra.

I am a believer in this cult-like beauty brand, and the Boy Brow wand is my all time fave. In less than 30 seconds, both brows are thickened, filled in, and groomed.

A big piece of my business is helping women redesign jewelry they’re not wearing into something that they don’t want to take off! This set was a combo of three different rings.

I stumbled upon artist Sean W. Spellman one night when I was deep down an Instagram rabbit hole. His artwork fits in beautifully with a midcentury motif or beachy vibes.

Maison Louis Marie’s No. 4 candle, Bois de Balincourt, is the dreamiest blend of cedarwood and sandalwood notes, and makes a nice hostess gift.

The black diamonds on this cuff make it easy to wear with everything and add just the right amount of edge.

I’ve been wearing the Harper style by Baldwin all year. The Japanese denim feels luxurious and pairs perfectly with a stacked chunky heel.

$349, baldwin.co

I spend a ridiculous amount of time photographing rings on my hands, so I like to have fun with my nail art. I typically go for minimal or negative-space designs like this one.
