Australian Coin Dons Rare Red Diamond

July 28, 2016

Any article that contains “red diamond” catches our eye. Not only is it a stunning gem to behold but its very rare. (According to reports, red diamonds will become even more rare and and their price is expected to double in the next couple of years.)

Known as The Kimberley Treasure and for sale at AU$1 million, the breath-taking collectable has been crafted from one kilogram of 99.99% fine gold, and features a radiant cut 0.54 carat red diamond unearthed from Rio Tinto’s Argyle Diamond Mine in the east Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Unveiled by the Premier of Western Australia, the Honourable Colin Barnett MLA, The Kimberley Treasure is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

Simon Trott, managing director of Rio Tinto’s diamonds business said “We are delighted to collaborate with The Perth Mint on the exclusive release of this distinctive investment piece. It is a beautiful symbol of the unique treasures of Western Australia and sets a new benchmark in limited edition craftsmanship.”

The Argyle Diamond Mine produces a very small proportion of rare pink diamonds and an even smaller proportion of rare red diamonds. On average one carat of rare red diamonds a year is produced from the Argyle mine.

Georgia May Jagger’s Jewelery Wearing Advice

July 26, 2016

We poured over this latest article in InStyle magazine, which details model Georgia May Jagger (daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall) jewelry preferences. Why? Because you know a celebrity like this has access to amazing jewelry and is on top of all the cutting edge trends. (Plus she also proudly admits she “nicks” jewelry from her mother!)

So what does the girl who could wear anything wear?

“I have a lot of her [mother’s] costume jewelry from when she was modeling, like stuff from Chanel,” she told InStyle. “It was funny because I asked her the other day, ‘When you first worked for Chanel, who was the designer there?’ She was like, ‘Coco Chanel.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, really?’ It’s quite amazing.”

And what other essentials should every girl own?

“I think a great pair of earrings like hoops or studs, and a cocktail ring, which is always nice for an evening,” she said.

The Juncture of Jewelry and Architecture

July 25, 2016

The lines and designs of jewelry extend far beyond what we wear on our bodies. Look at one of your favorite pieces of jewelry. Take a moment to note if you see that design or style elsewhere in your life, like in your home or office. Most likely, you have.

And that’s the beauty of jewelry design: it reflects artistry seen all around us.

Take the teaming of Rem Koolhaas who spearhead the redesign of Gaia Repossi’s flagship store on Place Vendôme in Paris. The jewelry reflects the design itself.

According to W Magazine, Repossi explained, “the new Lateral high end emerald cut diamond earrings that twist along their structure, which is a little like the billboard (the flipping panel window) on the ground floor. I had that idea for a long time, and that took a lot of time to develop.”

Jewelry Pairing Video, ALL Visual Pointers

July 21, 2016

Our studio staff keep up on fashion advice videos on YouTube. Some are amazingly helpful, some could stand some serious editing…some even contain bad jewelry wearing advice!

But there are definitely gems out there.

While the music is a bit grating (suggestion: turn the audio off,), we think an all visual video relays pointers more quickly and effectively…don’t you agree?

Monday night we had some of our fabulous summer monsoon weather here in the Phoenix area. Check the video and the article below for some great pics. I was on top of Camelback Mountain that evening and watched the storms rolling through the Valley. It was incredible!

Don’t look now. Pokemon jewelry coming to a store near you!

July 19, 2016

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of the massive Pokemon app trend sweeping the notion. Everyone you know is either playing it (or complaining about it!). The votes are split in our studio but we couldn’t help but notice the cuteness of the jewelry that’s spawned from this Internet craze.

U-Treasure by K.uno, a Japanese company, has introduced a line of Pokémon jewelry, proving it has its finger on the cultural pulse—and impeccable timing.

The new line, called Pocket Monsters, contains seven pieces and is advertised as a bridal collection. The items are available in platinum, silver, gold, and are fully customizable with mix-and-match metals and even gemstones.

Silver and 18-karat yellow gold Pikachu ring, which retails for 99,000 yen (US$984.29).
