  • Blissful Brides Blatantly Ignorning Economy Woes

    In some rather surprising news, one of the few demographics that doesn't seem to be bending due to economic pressure is (drum roll please): today's bride.

    That's right. A recent study conducted by Modern Bride shows that "instead of reducing their wedding budgets, engaged couples have reprioritized and plan
    to spend their dollars on items that will last forever."

    This includes the honeymoon, photography and the (another drum roll) the engagement ring.

    Couples are now looking at rings with serious lasting potential, making platinum the material of choice. Why platinum? According to the Conde Nast Bridal Group, platinum is not only 30 times more rare than gold, but it is the most durable of all precious metals and will last a lifetime.

    "Even in the current economy, this is the one jewelry purchase
    brides are unwilling to compromise. Today's bridal customer will make
    the investment to have a ring that lasts a lifetime
    ," said Michael Flynn , sales associate for Tivol.

    Apparently, its not only diamonds that last forever…it's platinum!

  • More on Statement Jewelry – What Statement do YOU want to Make?

    What does your wardrobe say about you? Is it reflecting an older version of you, say, you in your college years? Do you feel stuck in a bit of a time warp? Or conversely, are you wearing the latest trends with no sense of inner connectivity?

    Jewelry says a lot about the wearer. And with the hot statement jewelry that's all the rage right now, what statement do you want to make?

    Fashion shouldn't just be something imposed upon you. It should be something you design from your inner being, reflecting your true spirit. The great part with some of the bolder statement pieces this season? You can find a piece that really screams you!

    Take a look at some of the photos below and then contact Joseph Schubach Jewelers. We can design you a piece that reflects who you truly are…or perhaps the "you" you want to be!

  • The Bold Floral Necklace resurfaces this Spring

    You might remember these necklaces from yesteryear. Perhaps your mother or grandmother or great aunt donned one. At the time, you probably sighed, thinking how dated they looked.

    Well, look again. Many fashion bloggers are noting the return of these intricate, colorful and decidedly vintage pieces.

    These are "stand alone" necklaces for the most part. You want to wear these pieces with a simple outfit and most likely, no other jewelry. They speak for themselves.

    Take a look at some of these hot numbers for inspiration, courtesy of MyItThings:

  • Vintage Jewelry Perserveres in 2009

    Yuli Ziv, New York’s hottest fashion and fashion celebrity blogger, has a lot to say about the jewelry trends for 2009. And when she speaks, people listen.

    Yuli is an Entrepreneur (co-Founder of My”It”Things – online user generated fashion magazine and community) and Social media strategist (founding member of Style Coalition – coalition of independent online publishers in the fashion and lifestyle vertical.)

    So what does Yuli have to say about jewelery choices for the year ahead?

    Here's an excerpt from a recent interview with Gallery Atlantic:

     

     

    As a prominent fashion blogger what kind of jewelry do you think will be trendy this year?

    Yuli Ziv:  I think in the last few seasons we've seen
    lots of bold statement necklaces, and now the shift is towards earrings
    as the main jewelry piece. Anything from long pieces, or
    stones-encrusted styles like we've seen on the Vera Wang Fall 2009
    runway, to the unique sword-like earrings shown by Zac Posen –– will
    rule this upcoming season.

    Do you see any particular jewelry/watch/accessories trend among the celebrities and the glitterati on the streets of New York?

    Yuli Ziv:  Another emerging trend is vintage –– so
    anything vintage looking from 40s style brooches to cocktail rings,
    will play an important role in styling this year.

     

    If you could have an interview with any jewelry designer in the world, who would it be?

    Yuli Ziv:  I would love
    to talk to the late Daniel Swarovski. There aren't many true inventors
    in the field, and he was definitely one of them. It's amazing that
    Swarovski brand is flourishing years after his death and continues to
    innovate.

     

    Do you have a favorite piece you like to wear? What is it, why do you love it?

    Yuli Ziv:  I love simple
    modern looking jewelry, because it fits my personal style and most of
    my wardrobe. TeNo is one of my favorite brands, as they manage to turn
    any stones and metals into modern looking graphic shapes with a bit of
    futuristic appeal. I recently got this TeNo Steel Ring w/White Pearl as
    a gift and just don't take it off my finger.

  • Design the Jewelry of your Dreams

    When we go window shopping, we adapt our dream to the product in the window. In other words, we like it and we want to make it our own…but its not of our creation, so its a step away from exactly what we want.

    Custom design jewelry gives you the opportunity to be the creator, making the end result that much more special to you.

    Think about a piece of jewelry you already prize:

    Are there ways you'd make it better if you could?

    Or perhaps there's a piece of jewelry you've always dreamed of, but its out of your reach financially.

    Designing your own jewelry gives you the chance to decide on the cost and create from there. Never before in history has there been more materials that are comparable to the real thing. Materials such as moissanite and Gemesis are virtually indistinguishable from their actual counterparts (in this case, diamond.)

    So during these trying times, take matters into your own hands. Design a piece of jewelry from the power of your own creativity. That piece will mean more to you than you can imagine.

    Here are some samples of our own custom design jewelry at Joseph Schubach Jewelers, from creators such as yourself:

  • The Jewelry Trends of Now, 2009

    If you are the type who wants to keep up with the latest trend but realize your wallet doesn't seem to be as…fat as it used to, then this year will be fitting for you and your budget!

    The 2009 "in stepper" will be donning unconventional jewelry, using varying materials and colorful gemstones. Woods, ceramics, sea shell beads, leather will all make their way onto the 2009 look. The nice part? Many of these materials are more affordable than some of their more traditional counterparts (seashell beads versus diamonds…hmmm. Which one can you afford this year?)

    If you are a stickler for your gemstones, the trend this year is more colorful, unusually shaped gemstones. Think outside the box with brighter gems such as sapphire and rubies: an eye grabber any season, frankly.

    No matter which direction you choose, COLOR is the main lesson to be learned this year. Experiment, be bright and be bold!

  • How to Design your Dream Ring

    Joseph-schubach-jewelers-custom-design-high-end

    Many women dream of their wedding gown for years but often, their ring is an afterthought. They just want the ring to be pretty, preferably large and certainly dazzling. But the more specific you can be when it comes to the ring of your dreams, the better. You will form a lifelong bond with this ring, so make sure it fits your dream specifications!

    A little knowledge about jewelry design is the first step.

    First ask yourself questions. Do want a more traditional ring or perhaps something a little more cutting edge and unusual? What's your personality type? How will your ring reflect who you really are or who you want to evolve into? Your ring should speak to your heart. Take a moment and envision a ring that truly represents you. Ask your friends or family. Consider your hand as well. What kind of ring suits your hand well?

    Second, decide on the metal.  Sometimes its better to focus on the metal before you move to the big choice, the stone. The band is your base, your starting point, from which you can build.

    Most engagement rings are made in gold or platinum. If you choose gold, the most
    popular are 18K or 14K gold and they come in either in yellow gold or white
    gold. Platinum is significantly more expensive than gold but is
    becoming more popular. Titanium is occasionally chosen as it is extremely
    durable but it cannot be formed into intricate patterns and designs.

    Last – but not least – choose your stone. Ah, the stone! This is when custom designing your ring becomes deeply personal. Gems are magical, strong stones that represent and strengthen the wearer. Research the history of the stone. Get to know your stone! Which stone resonates with you and your personality?

               And think outside of the diamond box! Check out sapphires, rubies and emeralds as well.

    As for size, the same applies. What shape of a stone symbolizes your personality, your character, your soul? Find the shape of the diamond. The common diamond shapes are
    round, princess, emerald, marquise, pear oval, radiant, heart and
    Asscher.

    Creating your own ring assures you of complete satisfaction. Consider making these decisions with your partner. It can be a bonding, wonderful experience – a co-creation of your love. Be imaginative and collaborate!

    At Joseph Schubach Jewelers, if you can dream it, we can create it.

    Exquisite custom design jewelry is our specialty.

    It's what we do best.

    Let us bring your dream to life!
