Ed Hardy + Watches = <3!

Don Ed Hardy When you think of a watch, what is usually the first thing that you think about?  Well, if you are me, then you think of Ed Hardy, the king of modern tattoos and bringing that particular rock ‘n roll trait into everything that he does.  We all know that Ed Hardy is known for his sophistication, his experimentation and also his depth, but what I did not know is that he was known for his beautiful watches!

Watches to me are something that not a lot of people wear anymore, but when you have something this beautiful in your possession, how can you not wear it?  A twist on a classic, Ed Hardy style is exactly what this beautiful watch represents.  Gold, bling and the ability to tell time – it is awesome!

So if you are style and fashion conscious, you should absolutely take a look into this beautiful piece of artwork!

Engagement Rings? Royal Asscher Has You Covered!

Royal Asscher Eclipse Diamond Engagement RingLet’s have a chat about some of the latest things about the Royal Asscher family – it has been quite a while since I have done a blog about what they are doing right?  Well, I have to say that they are up to nothing but good and as always, they come to impress.

Their Eclipse collection is no different at all and this is just one engagement ring from that collection.  I love the fact that this particular ring not only has a beautifully cut diamond in the middle, but the ring itself is thicker and the circles of diamonds are very attractive.

The Royal Asscher Eclipse collection is something that I took a deep look at every single piece and I have found that they are all beautifully done and once again, the Royal Asscher is a family that I would be very proud to have on my finger!

Rhinestone Hoop Earrings: They Are Back In Style!

Rhinestone Hoop Earrings When I think of rhinestones – all that usually comes to my mind is my bedazzler, however these are not like the little gems that I used to glue to my denim jacket – these rhinestones are actually beautiful and to be honest … hoop earrings are actually in right now.  The cool thing about Rhinestone Hoop Earrings is the fact that they are inexpensive yet they look expensive … which is the entire point right?  Right.

One thing that I have noticed about rhinestones is the fact they sort of look like diamonds – however they aren’t and they are glitzier and more glamorous, which makes them perfect paired with your little black dress or even just some skinny jeans and an off-the-shoulder top.  Anything sexy and fashionable would make these earrings stand right out!

So really … get on the bus and get yourself some Rhinestone Hoop Earrings because they are really hot!

Say It With A Ruby!

Ruby RingsJewelry is more than just the look of it – when you wear a piece of jewelry, there is something that goes along with it … status.  That is very true when you wear a ruby.  Not many people can pull a ruby off, but there are some of them that can and personally, I think that real rubies are absolutely beautiful.  The Indian population is known for their use of rubies – whether it is on their foreheads or on their toes, rubies are very apparent and definitely part of the culture.

However, that does not mean that you can not wear them either.  Actually, ruby engagement rings are becoming increasing popular and I think that is beautiful!  I love – love, love red gemstones and rubies are definitely my favorite!  Whether you surround them with diamonds or you are looking for just a solitary ruby – your ring will look beautiful!

So really – rubies are the best in the world for the changing of the times and they are becoming popular everywhere!

Rive Gauche by Jean-Louis Jewelry Is Hot This Season

Jean-Louis Jewelry Rive Gauche.  Is that a name that you know?  If you are not a jewelry buff like I am, you probably have absolutely no idea what that name is.  It is actually a brand name for some of the best jewelry in the world.  Rive Gauche Jewelry is interesting and sold only on HSN, which is not what I watch all that often, but I might now that I know it is just sold there – I’m an internet chick, I look everything up on the web.  What makes this particular jewelry so interesting is the fact that it is made with Technibond.

What is Technibond?  It is actually a patented gold plating process that every single Rive Gauche piece of jewelry goes through.  Basically, it consists of about 40mm of 18K gold bonded with some sterling silver to make this beautiful lighter gold color that looks awesome.  Each and every piece of this jewelry that is sold off of HSN has a lifetime warranty, so you never have to worry about it!

So this is just one example of an HSN piece – you should look up some more, because they truly are worth the money spent!

Wallace Chan Takes on Nature

wallacechanring01Just lately in the jewelry world, many designers have been turning to nature for inspiration. Not only are we seeing flowers and trees, but we are seeing butterflies and moths, as well as some of the — seemingly — less attractive insects in nature, such as flies.

You might be thinking that a fly would make an ugly piece of jewelry or that a mere flower would be unspeakably boring, then you have not seen the designs of Hong Kong’s famed gem engraver, Wallace Chan. He is well known for actually carving portraits right inside of gemstones, and he is no less unique and distinct with his new jewelry collection.

The collection utilizes titanium which has been both cast and carved; Chan uses it to recreate aspects of nature. Despite the fact that titanium is a somewhat difficult metal, Chan’s pieces are very light. Not only that, but the detail found in them is painstaking and breathtaking — as you can clearly see here.

Le Vian: Chocolate Butterflies

levianyozm12Now, not to be completely stereotypical — I can’t really be, since I’m talking about myself as well — but if there is one thing we ladies know, it is chocolate.  Chocolate is good for what ails you, there is no doubt about it.  Heck, it has even been proven that chocolate is a pleasure source for your body, by signaling your brain to release some serious feel good endorphins.  These days, chocolate is even being used as a means of skin care, which makes it the perfect cure all for any number of things.  Since it is already such a versatile panacea, you have to wonder — how on earth could it get any better?

Le Vian, the innovative jewelry designer, answered that question quite beautifully, with this beautiful pendant.  This is from the completely one of a kind chocolate diamond collection.  Given the fact that it is set in strawberry gold, this piece of jewelry looks good enough to eat!
