  • The Most Expensive Earrings Ever?

    Joseph-schubach-most-expensive-earrings

    Harry Winston
    Extraordinary Diamond Drop Earrings
    $8.5 million

    According to Forbes, these earrings may be one of the most expensive pieces of jewelry in the world. And with 60.1 carats to these pear-shaped diamond drop earrings, who would expect less?

    You may sigh with diamond envy, but figure it this way: you'd have to hire your own personal bodyguards every time you wear them. And you could never casually say, "Oh shoot, I lost an earring." Instead, you'd bellow, "I just lost four million bucks! Four MILLION bucks!"

    At Joseph Schubach Jewelers, we can create extraordinary diamond (or moissanite or clarity-enhanced diamond) earrings like this for a fraction (and we do mean a fraction!) of the price. We specialize in recreating fine pieces like the ones above at a price you can afford.

    Better yet, join our DIY (Dream it Yourself) Custom Design Jewelry Contest and create drop earrings that are drop dead. Just by entering, you save 50% in custom design fees. If you're piece is chosen as the Winner, you win $500 toward your purchase.

    At Joseph Schubach Jewelers, you create the price, we create the piece!


  • Choosing the Right Setting for your Ring

    The setting for your ring is the foundation of your piece. It’s an often overlooked aspect when choosing a ring but its as personal of a decision as the stone itself. Many factors come into play, such as your lifestyle and the cut of the gem itself.

    There are basically three types of setting:

    The Prong Setting

    The prong engagement ring setting is a traditional ring setting that dates back to the early 1900’s. It’s a “basket” setting that holds you stone via prongs. This setting allows light to approach the stone from more angles, adding to the sparkle of your piece.

    The Flush Setting

    The flush setting is a more modern ring
    setting. A tapered hole is made within the band for the
    stone to reside. When done correctly, the stones are secured in an embedded manner into the ring. This is often a good choice for an active lifestyle.

    The Cluster Setting

    This engagement ring setting is good for those
    on a limited budget. With the cluster setting you can take many
    small stones and make them look like one single large stone. You can use this setting to arrange gemstones into a shape of your choice.

    Again, lifestyle factors come into play when deciding the setting for your ring. If you’re using your hands a lot throughout the day, then a secure setting for your ring becomes critical. You want to go through your day confidently, without the fear of damaging your ring. The setting of your ring needs to stand up to your day-to-day needs.

  • Vintage Jewelry – Let me Call you Sweetheart

    Sweetheart jewelry has a touching history. It began during World War I when soldiers in the trenches would send mementos home to their loved ones. Along with letters, it was a way to stay connected during perilous times.

    Sweetheart jewelry was often machine made and sold to servicemen abroad but many pieces were also handcrafted in the trenches. This "trench art" as it is referred to, is often made from available material such as wood or scrap metal.

    Sweetheart jewelry continues to garner attention from collectors, decades and decades later.

    If you want to send a long-lasting message to a loved one faraway, consider Joseph Schubach Jewelers Custom Designs. We can make a piece of Sweetheart Jewelry that speaks only to the two of you.

    Here are some vintage samples of Sweetheart Jewelry from Bay State Militaria and Antiques:

  • 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?

  • 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.
