  • Jeweled Headpiece on Broadway Wows (even though made with cheap jewels)

    In honor of last night’s Tonys, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of Broadways’s jewelry trends. Where else do you get the showiest, most fun and flamboyant looks after all?

    This headpiece certainly caught our eye. Not simply because of its historic beauty, but the ingenuity behind creating it. From the musical Anastasia (about the youngest Romanov princess) costume designer Linda Cho created this headpiece based on the look of the Russian kokoshnik (a traditional folk headdress). But even though the look is luxe, the price was just right:

    According to News Observer:

    “There’s a place called Earrings Plaza, a wholesaler near Koreatown,” said Cho, who is nominated for a Tony for her costumes. “All the jewelry there is between $1 and $5 so I bought a ton of it and we sewed.”

    Now that’s creative and economical…something we certainly encourage when it comes to jewelry!

    For the musical about the youngest Romanov princess, Linda Cho created this onion-domed piece based on the Russian kokoshnik, a traditional folk headdress. Pearls drape over the face like a curtain, and a veil cascades behind. Embedded in the piece are decorative fabrics and jewels, jewels and more jewels.

  • Jewelry Jokes…Any Good Ones?

    Okay, spent some time digging around this morning, and unfortunately, I must confess, there aren’t that many funny jewelry jokes out there. Maybe I need to create one myself, because I see a lot of humor in this business. But here goes nothing!


    WARNING – we cannot be held responsible for any potential unfunniness!


    Moderately Funny Jewelry Joke #1

    An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

    The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring and showed it to him. The old man said, “I don’t think you understand, I want something very special.”

    At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. “Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000,” the jeweler said.
    The young lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled
    with excitement. The old man seeing this said, “We’ll take it.”

    The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, by check. ” I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I’ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon,” he said.

    Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweler phoned the old man.
    “There’s no money in that account.”

    “I know”, said the old man, “but can you imagine the weekend I had?”


    Moderately Funny Jewelry Joke #2

    A woman enters a jewelry store and says, “You sold my husband a diamond ring yesterday but it’s the wrong size.”

    “No problem madam. We can adjust the finger size easily.”

    “Oh, you don’t understand, you sold him a five carat, and I take a ten carat size.”



    Moderately Funny Jewelry Joke #3

    “Rachel, darling, how wonderful to see you after all these years! My life, what an incredibly large diamond ring you’ve got. Is it a very famous diamond?”

    “Oh yes, Hermione, it’s the famous Bloomenstein diamond, but it’s got a curse with it”.

    “Really, what’s the curse?”

    “Mr. Bloomenstein, of course!” says Rachel.
