  • The Perfect Pairing: Two Tone Yellow and White Gold

    Why own a two-tone piece of jewelry? 

    Well first, it’s eye-catching. The combination of white and yellow gold (as shown in the videos below) can really showcase the shape and design of your ring. It’s the subtlety of the two shades working together that help distinguish separate parts of the ring.

    Two tone jewelry also never goes out of style. (In this case, yellow gold is a classic favorite while white gold is currently trending but eternally captivating.)

    Lastly, two tone metals remind us that the old rule that “metals should never mix” is simply not true. Instead, the power of each metal is enhanced by one  another, not diminished.

    What’s your two-tone jewelry dream? Share it with us and we’ll create a wearable reality just for you!


  • Wearing your Favorite Jewelry Now, not just Special Occasions



    My mother had a pearl necklace that her great aunt had given her. It was one of her prized possessions, hiding in the depths of her jewelry box and only brought out for “special occasions.” Thing is, the special occasions were rather rare for a busy, working mother raising five children. And often, when those “special occasions” would arrive, my mother would forget about her precious pearl necklace, making for another missed opportunity.

    If you’re the type who covets your jewelry a little too much, first recognize this: it’s normal. These are precious items and nobody wants to lose a family heirloom or have it stolen. We’re cautious because we care, right?

    But dare to take a look at the flip side: your life is now. Celebrating your prized possessions doesn’t have to wait for a special occasion. It can be any occasion. Dare to wear that special something to a lunch with a friend or a visit to the grocery store or even in the privacy of your own home.

    Get in the habit of showing off your jewelry now. Today.

    Remember that a jewelry box is not a home for your jewelry: you are! 




  • How Blue Diamonds get their Wondrous Hue

    While fancy colored diamonds are all the rage, most don’t know much about them. Take blue diamonds, for instance. While they continue to garner top dollar at high-end auctions around the world (they are extremely rare), most don’t know how they got that way. Are they actually treated diamonds (no, not true GIA certified blue diamonds) or did Mother Nature use her wily magic (yes!).

    It just takes a small amount of boron and a low amount of nitrogen. Its these trace ingredients (basically impurities trapped in the crystal’s structure) that create the beautiful blue hue. Currently, blue diamonds are found in a only a few mines around the world. And as mentioned, they are very rare: only about one in 200,000 diamonds display blue with far fewer displaying deep color.

  • I will definitely be a return customer!

    Hi Margie,

    So I finally gave her the ring on Thanksgiving. She was ecstatic! I’ll attach a photo, I did it at her hometown church and she absolutely LOVES the ring… it’s amazing how she says she never imagined a brilliant round cut, but she boasts about how this ring is PERFECT for her and how thrilled she is to wear it everyday.

    On top of all that, I have received so many compliments on how great of a job I did selecting the ring, and I owe much of my thanks to you! I truly appreciate your help, and I will definitely be a return customer!

    Thank you for everything!

  • The Largest (and Most Expensive) Diamond Drop Earrings of 2016

    We love drop earrings and offer beautiful ones of our own. Our custom design drop earrings are often distantly inspired by pieces that simply take our breath away, like the Miroir de l’Amour (Mirror of Love), a pair of pear-shaped D color, flawless type IIa diamond earrings.

    Created by Boehmer et Bassenge, these gorgeous earrings sold for nearly $17.7 million at Christie’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels sale in November, making them the world’s largest perfect pear-shaped diamond drops ever to be offered at auction.

    Remember: we can recreate drop earrings that give you that auction-quality feel for a fraction of the price (because let’s face it, who has 17 mill just hanging around, right?)

  • Jewelry Auction Recap 2016

    Throughout 2016, we shared a copious amount of juicy auction information in our blog: celebrity jewelry, fancy colored and rare gems and of course, the exorbitant price-tags and bidding wars that leave us all a little breathless.

    Yet auctions have their ups and downs like any other business and 2016 was no different. Records were set (pink and blue diamonds continued to pull in the highest bids) while other gems failed to generate the expected interest (like Shirley Temple Blue, a 9.54-carat fancy deep blue, owned by the child actress with an estimate of $25 – $35 million).

    But blue gems still pulled their weight (sorry Shirley), namely The Oppenheimer Blue which pulled in top dollar for 2016. Looking at it, we can only sigh and see why.

    The Oppenheimer Blue

    The Oppenheimer Blue, a 14.62-carat fancy vivid blue rectangular-cat diamond snatched a world record for any jewel sold at auction (more than $58 million!) at Christie’s in May.
