October 24, 2014

Hi Joe,

I proposed over the weekend, and it went great! L can’t stop
talking about how much she loves the ring and how beautiful it is. I
asked her at the Griffith Observatory, overlooking LA with a couple of
friends with us.


“If you could only see the smile on my face right now, they are more beautiful then I could even have imagined! “

The Spiritual Properties of Diamonds

October 22, 2014

According to the spiritually-inclined, precious stones hold power. Some are meant to heal, others to protect, etc. Even if you’re not that “New Agey” it doesn’t seem that far-fetched, does it? We wear certain pieces of jewelry because we feel it not only looks good, but offers up a certain feeling…and maybe that feeling is coming from the stone or the metals.

Here’s what GemsandMineralsDiva have to say:

Diamonds amplify energy and never need recharging. They are like apartments with free electricity, but prettier. Diamonds increase the energy of whatever it comes into contact with and when paired with other crystals, the healing is amped up.

Diamonds are like Malachite, however and need to be cleansed often. Both Diamond and Malachite enhance all energy including negative energy. Smudging a Diamond with white sage or even washing your hands often (for those who wear diamond rings) will help fix that.

Diamonds will plug all holes in your aura, cleanse your aura of anything blocking your inner light and help your true divine soul’s light sparkle. It’s a gem for the Crown Chakra and links it to divine light and love.

Worn as earrings, Diamonds protect against cell phone vibes.  Diamonds also clear emotional and mental pain while stimulating your creativity.

Being a symbol of wealth, Diamonds attract abundance and like Citrine, help you to adapt to thinking on the level of abundance.

The Legacy of Oscar de la Renta

October 21, 2014

The “Sultan of Suave” has passed away at 82 and left a legacy in the fashion world that will have a never-ending ripple effect. Here are some images in his memory.

The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die,” he told an audience at New York’s 92Y “Fashion Talks” series in June 2013. “We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.”







Personalized Jewelry Mapping out Important Moments of your Life

October 20, 2014

Most of us remember not only important dates in our life but important locations. Where was your first apartment? What restaurant were you in when you’re husband proposed? What hospital was your baby born in? One company is successfully running with the idea of producing personalized jewelry that commemorates that special location in your life.


A. Jaffe’s new “Maps” collection offers necklaces, pendants and charms speaking to the trend of personalization that is popular among today’s consumers.


A. Jaffe is taking personalized jewelry to the next level with its new Maps collection, which offers pieces that depict a particular spot on the globe to mark where people have met, fell in love or experienced some other significant or personal event.

The collection is available in 14-karat white or rose gold and sterling silver, and each piece features a single diamond on the map that marks a specific location. Retail prices in the line range from $125 to $1,995.

“I am shaking, it’s so beautiful.”

October 16, 2014

Good morning, Joe!
I’m planning on writing you some reviews on Yelp and whatever other sites you guys are listed on later (once I calm down), but I just wanted to say, I am dying over this ring! I just got it about five minutes ago, and I’m just walking around looking at the stone in all the different rooms lol. I am shaking, it’s so beautiful.
Thank you so much for such a beautiful ring :)

Engagement Ring Size Correlates with Divorce Rates

October 15, 2014

Who thinks of these studies?

A study by two economics professors at Emory University in Atlanta has found that the amount of money a couple spends on an engagement ring may reveal their chances of getting divorced.

The researchers surveyed 3,000 U.S. adults who either were in or had been in a heterosexual marriage about their wedding costs, ring costs, and marital status.

They found that men who spent $2,000–$4,000 on an engagement ring were 1.3 times more likely to get divorced than men who spent $500–$2,000.

Men who spent less than $500 on a ring also had higher divorce rates, but men who spent more than $8,000 had lower divorce rates.

Based on this data, the sweet spots for your customers if they want to optimize the chances that they will be together forever: $500–$2,000 or more than $8,000.

Here’s one of our “divorce proof” rings. And although our work is guaranteed, your happy marriage is up to you!

Evil Eye Jewelry – The Myth Carries On

October 14, 2014

As we approach Halloween, we here at Joseph Schubach Jewelers love to indulge in the scary (and often perfectly tacky) traditions that make this spooky holiday particularly special. Today we focus on the the “evil eye” and jewelry that is meant to protect the wearer from it. As you’ll see, celebrities are carrying on the tradition.

The most popular method of escaping the evil eye’s effects in many cultures is by the use of evil eye talismans, evil eye symbols, and evil eye jewelry. These are meant to “reflect” the power of the evil look. The evil eye amulet originated in Greece, where it was known as an “apotropaic” amulet, meaning that it reflected harm. The most basic design of the evil eye, prevalent in the Middle East, is a talisman designed with concentric blue and white circles made to symbolize the evil eye, known as the nazar. It is often used on houses, vehicles, or jewelry.

Lauren Bacall’s Jewelry Heading for NYC Auction

October 13, 2014


NEW YORK (AP) — Lauren Bacall’s art, jewelry and furniture will be auctioned in New York.

Her estate is selling hundreds of items that had filled her three homes. Bonhams auction house estimates they will bring $3 million.

The film and theater legend died in New York City in August at age 89.

Bonhams says two Henry Moore sculptures from the collection will be offered during its Impressionist and modern art sale in November.

Bacall was a big fan of Moore’s work. Six more of his sculptures will be sold in March, with about 700 other lots. They include tribal art and paintings by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder and others.

They once decorated her homes in Los Angeles, Amagansett, Long Island, and the famed Dakota apartment building in Manhattan.
