  • Jewelry Style Make-up, Vanessa Hudgens Style

    Adornment can be anything you want it to be. When it comes to make-up, jewelry can be indicated with the use of the right placement of color and design.

    Nobody does this better than fashion guru/celebrity Vanessa Hudgens, who wows the crowds at Coachella each year by donning her particular brand of distinctive desert fashion.

    In this video, make-up expert Angel Marie demonstrates how you too can have that Hudgens-style bling feel via the right make-up art.

  • Facts about the British Crown Jewels

    200652414339_MTnew_ceremsym_crownjewels_galleryiii

    The Imperial State Crown is worn by the Queen at each State Opening of Parliament. It is one of the youngest crowns in the collection and holds a number of much older gems. The crown was remade in 1937 after the previous frame weakened under the weight of the gemstones (!)

     

    Other facts about the Crown Jewels?

    The British crown jewels include the massive Cullinan Diamond, the biggest ever gem-quality rough diamond ever uncovered. Discovered in 1905, it weighed 3,106.75 carats.

    The Crown Jewels are kept in the Tower of London and are the ceremonial treasures acquired by English kings and queens. They have been used by English kings and queens since 1660 or earlier. The Crown Jewels are part of the national heritage and held by The Queen as Sovereign.

  • What exactly is a Rose Brilliant Cut?

    There are many different cuts of gemstones; so many that our customers are often left scratching their heads when it comes to choosing a cut that is right for them.

    We’re privileged to be working with The Diamond Foundry (a lab grown diamond company from San Francisco). One of their master cuts is the Rose Brilliant Cut.

    So let’s clarify:

    What is a Rose Cut?

    Considered of one of the original diamond cuts of antique and heirloom jewelry, the rose cut dates as far back as the 1500’s and is considered a precursor to the brilliant cut.

    The stones are cut to resemble a rose (hence the name) by reflecting the narrow, spiral effect of their petals. This means a flat bottom and a larger surface area to truly showcase the stone’s brilliance.

    Historically, by the 1900’s, advanced technology made the brilliant cut popular, leaving the rose cut to fade away…at least for the time being.

    Decades later, Tiffany’s created a popular rose cut solitaire setting, made with an open mount so the light could shine through even more and provide the utmost in dazzle effect. Some innovators added even more sparkle by baking thin layers of gold or silver with the stone, increasing the reflective capabilities.

    Today the rose cut has once again seen a resurgence (everything old is new again afterall) with celebrities like Camilla McConaughey and her breathtaking Cathy Waterman Rose cut engagement ring.

    What is a Brilliant Cut?

    A brilliant is the name of a cut (not of a stone, as often misunderstood). It generally has 57 or 58 facets, which creates maximum reflection of light for the diamond. It is one of the most popular cuts since it provides extreme “dazzle” effect.

    Okay, so what exactly is a Rose Brilliant Cut then?

    The Diamond Foundry’s Rose Brilliant Cut is a modernized version of the Jubilee Cut (aka 20th Century Cut or Jubilant Cut) which was designed for Queen Victoria’s 60th Year of Reign for Diamond Jubilee.

    This unique cut normally has a total of 88 facets (compared to the 58 facets found in round brilliant diamonds). There is no culet which provides an extra glittering effect. Some consider it the brightest cut you can find in a diamond.

    Combining the sparkle power of a brilliant cut diamond with the historically dazzling beauty of the rose cut and Jubilee cut diamond, the rose brilliant cut diamond has a unique optical power of its own.

  • M.K.

  • Amazing process.

    Amazing process. I was originally worried about buying a diamond from across the country. The ring was perfect though. I also just had it independently appraised, and the local jeweler confirmed that it was exactly as described by Joseph Schubach. The engagement ring is truly unique, and the work is second to none. Thanks! Pat R
