  • Jerry Lewis and those Rings


    Image Source

    As fans of comedy around the world mourn the death of Jerry Lewis at 91, we decided to take a moment to focus on the jewelry choices of this fine comedian…and what an interesting story to share.

    According to a classic movie blog, Lewis frequently–if not always–wore two rings in any film he appeared, regardless of whether it was appropriate for the character (which it often wasn’t).

    No matter what character he played, it appears Jerry Lewis almost always wore two rings. One looks like a large gold wedding ring, which is weird, because he tended to play single characters:

    The other is a pinky ring with an enormous sapphire (which can be seen in the photo above).

    These rings almost never fit with Lewis’ characters, who tended to be not only single, but not wealthy enough to afford such fancy jewelry.

    In fact, I don’t know for sure why he had to wear either of those rings, regardless of the character he played. I can’t think of any actor more determined to keep a personal piece of himself in every performance like that…


    There’s speculation as to why he was so determined to wear these rings, regardless of the film, including Dean Martin who thought Lewis was simply “flaunting his wealth.”

    Knowing jewelry the way we do, we have a different guess: each ring must have had enormous personal importance to him, possibly in the same vain as good luck charms he felt compelled to wear throughout much of his life, not just in films.

    Regardless of the reason, let’s say farewell to Mr. Lewis and the real charm he possessed: an amazing sense of humor.

  • What Famous People wear Good Luck Charms?



    Most of us have a good luck charm or two, without even knowing it. It’s that go-to piece of jewelry we put in that makes us feel safe, comforted. The longer we wear it, the more it seems to grow in strength. Or so we like to believe.

    And perhaps that belief is enough to “charm” our lucky piece. If we simply feel more confident and emboldened when we wear it, didn’t it work its magic already?

    Celebrities have a long history of good luck charms. And athletes too (who often feel that that their charm of choice helps them win a game).

    These “lucky” celebrities include:

    Audrey Hepburn had a lucky rabbit figurine.

    Lindsay Lohan had a favorite bracelet as a lucky charm.

    Madonna has been known to wear a red string bracelet to ward off bad luck.

    Cate Blanchett proudly displays her bronzed Lord of the Rings elf ears in her home for a dose of good luck.

    Benicio del Toro wears a ring with a wooden core so he can always knock on wood whenever needed.

    Cameron Diaz wears a lucky charm necklace to ward off aging.

    Some celebrities and sports stars deviate from jewelry as good luck charms.

    Serena Williams credits a pair of socks as her good luck charm. “I have a pair of socks that I’ve been wearing every match,” she said. “I’ve never lost a match in these socks so I guess that is a little superstitious.”

    Helen Mirren dons a lucky pair of shoes she wears to awards shows.

    What about you? What’s your good luck charm? Don’t forget: you can always create one of your own, with every element of it representing aspects of you. Learn more about our custom design process. 



  • The Blake Lively Inspired Engagement Ring

    In 2012, Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds surprised the world when they got married (on the sly). Reynolds put a gorgeous 12-carat oval-cut diamond on Lively’s finger (allegedly valued at a cool $2 million).

  • Georgia May Jagger’s Jewelery Wearing Advice

    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.



  • Met Gala Jewelry Highlights

    We’re still diligently pouring over the pix from Monday night’s Met Gala. And why wouldn’t we? The event itself not only serves as fundraiser for the renowned museum but also marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit…meaning amazing outfits and jewelry.

    The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons. – Wikipedia

  • Let’s Talk Beyonce’s Yellow Dress in Lemonade

    We’re more than just jewelers here at Joseph Schubach’s. We consider ourselves fashionistas of sorts. And why wouldn’t we? Jewelry and fashion go together like Romeo and Juliet, like peanut butter and jelly, like diamonds and forever!

    So we couldn’t help ourselves after watching the insanely popular Beyonce video “Lemonade” that aired on HBO on April 23. It’s an epic watch, containing all of the tracks from her new album.

    The dress? A canary yellow ruffled Roberto Cavalli number designed specifically for her. Love the fat hoop earrings to add an extra level of boldness.



  • A Fashion Homage to Prince

    We’re still reeling from the death of Prince. Not only has his music defined eras in our lives but his truly iconoclastic spirit has inspired millions of us. His fashion was uniquely his and often ahead of it’s time, expressing flamboyance, style and a broader vision of gender and sexuality.

    May we all continue to be a bit bolder and spirit-free in his wake.


    There are no accidents. And if there are, it’s up to us to look at them as something else. And that bravery is what creates new flowers.


    On spirit:

  • Drew Barrymore Trades out Wedding Ring for Message Ring

    What to do with that awkward empty space on your finger after a divorce? Many are happy to have a blank canvas for a while but in the case of Drew Barrymore, as an artist, she decided to replace the space with something creative:

    The actress, who recently revealed that she’s divorcing husband Will Kopelman after nearly four years of marriage, has decided to ditch her wedding ring and rock a new accessory on that finger. And it’s not just any random piece.

    Barrymore was honored at the ASPCA’s 19th annual Bergh Ball last night in New York, and while holding her award, we noticed that a nice blue and gold ring has replaced her diamond. The new ring is a 14-carat gold and blue enamel piece with words, “Qu’Hier Que Demain,” which is a portion of the French phrase meaning, “More Than Yesterday, Less Than Tomorrow.”

  • 2016’s Oscar for Aquatic Accessory? Whoopi Goldberg’s Octopus Ring

    The Oscars are all about flash and glitz…but some celebrities manage to combine over-the-top with creativity. And that’s why we’re giving an in-house Oscar to Whoopi Goldberg who donned a sea-worthy stunner on hand last night.

    Some critics took to panning her octopus ring (we couldn’t find the designer’s name of this ring as of this a.m.)  but we appreciated the actress honoring a time-honored fashion rule: if you’re going to wear a statement piece (a large and loud piece of jewelry), pair it with something simple, like a black dress.
