Cookie Lee vs. Premier Designs!

Cookie Lee

All right ladies, now that we have talked a little bit about Premier designs, let’s touch on Cookie Lee – now personally, I have been to a Cookie Lee party and I hated it.  Although I did not like the sales person, I definitely did end up buying some jewelry, which of course I did not really like in the end, but that is another story all together right?  Right.

Cookie Lee is another jewelry thing that you can sell all by yourself.  Again, just like Avon or Mary Kay, this jewelry can be sold to all different kinds of people and really … really, I think it is a great way to make money.

So what do you think ladies … honestly?  Cookie Lee vs. Premier Designs, which one do you think is better and why?  I think that Premier Designs might be better but I have never been to a show nor ever seen a catalog.  Let me know your thoughts!

Premier Designs : Can You Do It?

Premier Designs

So really – if you people have never heard of Premier Designs, this is going to be quite an education for you!  Premier Designs is sort of like Mary Kay for jewelry.  No – really, it is!  You know those parties that you go to with some of your friends?  You now how when you go to them there are a bunch of vendors set up, trying to sell you things?  Well ladies that is what Premier Designs is all about.

In this economy people are doing really anything to make money.  People are getting laid off all over the place and it sucks … that is why companies like Premier Designs are becoming more and more popular in this day and age.  People are looking for ways to supplement their income and if selling jewelry can do it?  Well then, that is fantastic!

The cool thing about Premier Designs is the fact that there are so many vendors and so much jewelry to choose from!  The fact that Premier Designs has been around forever is fantastic as well!

After you have figured out your budget, the next step is going to be choosing the setting.  This is going to be the hard part as there really are a whole lot of different settings.  This is another thing that you are going to have to research but to be honest, hint around with your girlfriend about it.  Ask her what rings she likes and heck, you could even take her jewelry shopping and casually head over to the engagement ring area.

The ring style is going to be one of the most important things as this is going to be something that she is going to be wearing all of the time.  You certainly do not want something that looks like it came out of a gumball machine and you do not want a diamond that she can barely see right?

Finding The Ideal Engagement Ring: Make Her Smile! Part 2

All right, now that you have decided to pop the question, the next thing that you are doing to want to do, is figure out your budget.  Honestly, engagement rings do not grow on trees and most of the time, they are super expensive, so you definitely want to make sure that you find the right engagement ring for the right price.

This is where you researching nose should come in handy.  Making sure that you are finding the best possible deal in the world is something that should be pretty easy.  Make sure that you utilize the internet as much as possible, that way you can definitely ensure that you are getting the very best deal.

What a lot of men do not know is that the rule of thumb when it comes to engagement rings is that you should want to spend upwards of two months salary on an engagement ring.  Personally, I would not do that and I would put a cap on the ring of about $2,000.00, but that is just me.  More to come!

De Grisogono: One More Post!


Okay folks, so I had to do one more ring so you can see just how kick ass this designer really is; not only was that other ring something of complete and utter beauty, but this ring right here – oh man, it is definitely breathtaking. 

One thing about De Grisogono is the fact that he loves … love customer jewelry.  The bigger the better and while most people can not carry it off, if you can, you should!

This piece is absolutely and positively breathtaking and I swear, if I had enough money to get myself one of these beautiful gems I would.  So if you have the money – get yourself one!

De Grisogono: This Designer Kicks Butt!

De Grisogono

Whenever I am looking for something unique, especially in the way of jewelry, I turn to De Grisogono.  Seriously, google this guy and you will see all sorts of jewelry that you will never, ever see anywhere else and to be honest, I like that part of it. 

It is one thing to design jewelry and do it well but it is quite another to design jewelry that no one else in the world can really match.  Really – can you match that beautiful ring?  Probably not!

De Grisogono is by far one of the most unique jewelers out there and really, even as I am staring at the ring I am posting here, I have to say that it really does not do him justice.  There are so many other pieces out there but this one is by far one of the most different pieces.  So check him out!
