Helen Ficalora – Inspiring Beauty, Love, and Peace

Timeless, personal, and beautiful are what Helen Ficalora’s jewelry makes me think of.  I found Helen Ficalora more than six years ago when out to lunch with a couple of girlfriends. One of them was wearing Helen’s signature alphabet charm.   I loved it the minute I saw it.  I recall a beautiful sunny afternoon having lunch outside.  We were sitting outside talking but I can’t recall about what exactly.  I was distracted and I just remember something catching my eye and not being able to take my eye off of the little gold disc that was shining so brightly reflecting the sun.  When she moved, the light danced on the disc.  I reached out and touched the disc and saw a letter ‘J’ on the charm.  It wasn’t stamped but rather had the slight hand-made imperfection as though it was hammered.  It was beautiful.  I asked her where she got it.  It was a gift from her other girlfriends.  Immediately I fell in love.  Helen Ficalora was the designer and she had a boutique in Beverly Hills.  I then knew my mission.

Nestled in ivy is a little boutique in Beverly Hills.  If you are not looking for it, you could miss it.  You walk up and ring a door bell for entrance.  One of the Helen Ficalora associates greets you and lets you in as if you are entering their home.  The décor is simple yet rich.  A glass showcase runs along the length of the wall on the left filled with Helen’s complete collection.  The other half of the boutique has plush sofas and large individually framed wall mirrors so you can see how the jewels look on you.  Crystal chandeliers with soft pink shades compliment her signature magenta accents.  It’s a very feminine and inviting look and you’re sure to feel excited when you walk in.  I’ve been to this location on multiple occasions and have enjoyed each experience as I added to my Helen Ficalora collection.

Helen Ficalora is probably best known for her signature alphabet charms   like the one my girlfriend was wearing that sunny afternoon at lunch.  It is one of my favorite pieces that I now proudly wear.   I receive compliments and inquiries from strangers everywhere I go.  The letters aren’t perfectly stamped on the little discs; instead they have slight imperfection to them which creates the charm for me.  In addition to the alphabet charms, Helen’s collection includes earrings, rings, bracelets, mini charms of animals and symbols, birthstone charms, and much more.  She has even created several pieces that represent different causes among which are Parkinson’s Disease, Ovarian Cancer, Breast Cancer, Canavan Disease, and Project Sunshine.  Sales for those charms are donated to those specific causes.  Her pieces are available in Sterling Silver, 14KT Yellow Gold, White, and Pink Gold.  All of which are equally beautiful.   With so many options, it’s easy to make Helen Ficalora necklaces your very own.   I love that you can layer necklaces of different length and styles with different charms that add personal meaning, and stack rings to the way you want.  Helen’s pieces are truly something that can be very personal to each individual.  I have many girlfriends who wear Helen’s necklaces and all of us have different charm sets that make each of our necklaces very different from one another.  I love that about Helen’s jewelry.  Everyone can create their own special look that is personal to them.

Helen’s necklaces have been featured in movies and television shows including 27 Dresses, The Proposal, When in Rome, Duplicity, Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, 30 Rock, and many others.  Her necklaces are also worn by many celebrities such as Brooke Shields, Katie Holmes, Sarah Jessica Parker,  Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Kelly Ripa.    Jennifer Garner is also known to wear Helen Ficalora’s necklaces and has even collaborated with Helen to create a tulip charm that is sold to raise money for ovarian cancer research.

Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, New Mom Gifts,  Anniversary, or “I’m sorry I forgot Your [fill in the blank]” Day – Helen Ficalora is the perfect gift.  It’s great for any occasion.  I love all of my Helen Ficalora pieces that celebrate my family, motherhood, and my own personal style.  If you are not familiar with Helen Ficalora, then take a look and give them a call.  I’ve also placed orders over the phone for some of her pieces as gifts to friends and have not been disappointed with the service.

    I LOVE her jewelry! It is simple yet elegant, and great for every day wear. Everything is so mass produced these days, so, it is nice to have some personalization in what we wear!

    I love her jewelry! Just when I thought I had enough charms, I found another that I want. I love that you can just keep adding and it never looks like it’s too much.

      Rose gold is so popular right now. It is really a nice change from the yellow gold. Glad that you love your Helen pieces as much as we do 🙂

    I love them too! Of course I got mine from my dear friend Ellen DeGeneres (haha) and they are in silver, I still love them. I think in time I’ll have to splurge for the gold ones!

    • Song says:

      Hi Chinny!
      Definitely worth the splurge for the gold or rose gold pieces 🙂 And if you can make it to Helen’s boutiques that is even better since her website does not include her complete collection. Glad you are enjoying your HF 🙂
