Fashion Advice

  • Dare to Wear your Least Favorite Color

    Most of us have a pretty good idea when it comes to colors that don’t look good on us. And for good reason: we’re probably right! For me, yellow makes me look washed out, sallow. Certain shades of green bring out an undertone in my skin that I’d prefer stay under.

    But are we attached too deeply to these long-held beliefs? Do we become so embedded in these “fashion rules” that we refuse to make any colorful change? And do we deny ourselves the opportunity to embrace a color simply because we decided years ago, it doesn’t work well on us?

    There’s an interesting challenge when we wear a color we don’t like: how can we look good in it anyway? Every color can be enhanced and adapted by the jewelry and accessories we wear, the other colors we pair with it and our make-up.

    With Spring here, dare to wear a color that challenges you. Let your imagination work with the color and not against it. You’ll be surprised: that color might not look as bad on you as thought!


  • Winning poses for ANY photo!

    We all know the feeling. Someone takes a photo of you and you think you’re doing all the right things but the final result is, well…not exactly what you expected. Its discouraging and can wreak havoc on your confidence.

    Why not take a few pointers from a pro so you can put your best foot forward the next time someone grabs a shot of you?

  • How to “restyle” old clothes

    Wait! Don’t toss out those old jeans! Well maybe…they are looking a little worn for the wear. But don’t toss out that old sweater! Sure, you might feel done with it but why not give it one more chance to shine?

    This video addresses simple ways in which you can jazz up those old clothes. (Hint: jewelry always updates an old look.)

  • Dare to take up some space on your ring finger!

    Stacking rings has been trending for quite some time now. But what we’re seeing that’s equally fun–one ring that occupies more space on the finger and gives the illusion of stacking.

    Often engagement rings are small, delicate. Sure, they may have a powerhouse gem (or if you’re lucky, many) but ultimately, most of the finger real estate is left wide open, right?

    The beauty of a cluster band like the one below? Colored gemstones can work equally well when creating a cluster band (as opposed to simply diamonds).

    Take a look at this recent custommade rings of ours. Considered a cluster band, the many rows and stones create a visual showstopper. Sure, it’s a lot of ring–but for some bling lovers, this is the perfect fit!


  • How to Pair a Strapless Dress with the RIGHT Jewelry

    You might guess that just about any necklace would work with a strapless dress, right? Nope…not entirely. The color of the dress makes a big difference (a brightly colored strapless number might not work as well with a big, bold statement necklace, for example).

    This video provides some quick and easy pointers when pairing your strapless dress with jewelry. The best part with a strapless dress? You have a wide open canvas to work with…so choose wisely!

  • Simplifying your Style in 3 Easy Steps

    We love simplicity when it comes to style. And it shows in our jewelry design. But style goes beyond just jewelry (sigh, its true). This fun video hits on some critical points when it comes to simplifying your wardrobe.

    Personal stylist Hilary Rushford discusses the way we often impose style on ourselves based on what’s trendy and hot and not what simply fits us best. She reminds us how simpler style choices often free us to be ourselves in our clothing, not what we think we should look like.


  • How to Define your own Personal Style

    Guess what? Your own personal style changes. And for obvious reasons: so do you!

    But what if you’re just not sure about your style? What if you feel like your style is all over the place and not really…defined. That’s okay too. Again, style changes as you do. Relax into it. Dare to have fun with it. And (according the video below) do a little homework. Clip or pin images of fashion that appeals to you, regardless of whether you can afford it or not.

    And remember: it’s alright to “borrow” style from others. Ultimately, you’ll undoubtedly find a path of your own.

  • How to Accessorize with Bright Colors

    If you’re like many women we know, you’re a big fan of neutral colors. And we get it: neutral shades are easy to pair with other neutral shades. And if you have a busy schedule, you just don’t have time to match colors when you’re on the run.

    But your outfit might not be speaking as boldly as you’d like. It’s easy to drown in a sea of beige, leaving your fashion choices to come across as nondescript. And we know you’re anything but boring, right?

    That’s where accessories come in (and yes, jewelry counts…yay!)

    Wikipedia defines accessories as:

    Fashion accessories can be loosely categorized into two general areas: those that are carried and those that are worn. Traditional carried accessories include purses and handbags, eyewear, hand fans, parasols and umbrellas, wallets, canes, and ceremonial swords.

    Accessories that are worn may include jackets, boots and shoes, cravats, ties, hats, bonnets, belts and suspenders, gloves, muffs, jewelry, watches, sashes, shawls, scarves, lanyards, socks, and stockings.

    Now, we know you may not have many ceremonial swords in your closet, but accessories cover a wide scope. And that’s where color comes in.

    Review your closet and see where you could brighten up your wardrobe with accessories. As jewelers, we see an increasing trend in customers searching out brightly colored jewelry, including brightly colored gemstones. Consider a custom design piece of jewelry packed with color, for instance. That alone can take a so-so outfit to a sensational outfit.

    So dare to add some color to your accessory world. Just a splash of it goes a long way!



  • Can the Skinny Jean Live Again?

    At our studio in Scottsdale, we look beyond the jewelry and into the wide world of fashion (since it serves as the obvious backdrop to our beautiful pieces).

    As backseat fashionistas perusing the latest trends, we confess: we don’t like skinny jeans very much and were quite happy that they’ve fallen off the radar.

    But, for those who still love the overly clingy and breath-taking (literally) denim, we do like the reinvention of skinny jeans found in Refinery 29 recently.


    In this fashionable scenario, the skinny jeans become almost “leggings-like” giving the outfit a much more updated look.

    And may we suggest these earring that always pair nicely with casual fashion?
