M. Khordipour Enterprises Jewelry — Breathtakingly Beautiful!

M. Khordipour EnterprisesI am one of those people that covet – I know that it is a sin but I have to say that everything I see that is done by M. Khordipour Enterprises I covet.  Not only does this particular brand look incredible on your finger but just seeing it in the store in NYC is enough for me … besides actually touching the jewelry.

What I love about anything done by M. Khordipour Enterprises is the fact that they take such care with their pieces and that they truly know exactly what they are doing.  Not only does every piece that comes out of the back room beautiful but it is done up in such a way that makes you want it.

Take this unique and different aquamarine/diamond ring.  Not only is it beautiful but it is definitely a left-hand ring that can be worn with anything!

This Is What Happens When a Sculptor Becomes a Jewelry Designer

earringsCharles Krypell is a jewelry designer now, but he used to be a sculptor, and when you look at his pieces, that information really is not surprising. There is an exquisite attention to detail in the jewelry pieces he designs. His jewelry is absolutely timeless with a depth of sophistication.

Take, for instance, the Charles Krypell Diamond and Green Tourmaline Dangle Earrings. These are so absolutely beautiful they just about take my breath away.

The 18k earrongs are two tone gold, and they contain two green tourmaline gems with a honeycomb cushion cut. The aesthetic is extremely innovative while remaining classic, elegant, even somehow graceful.

The tourmaline is 5.78 carats, and the earrings also feature a total of .45 carat worth of round cut yellow sapphires, along with beautifully cut diamonds.

Versace Has Vibrant Jewelry, Too!

ver3-2When you want classic, stylish, sophisticated clothing with an edge, you turn to Versace. When you want classic, stylish, sophisticated jewelry with an edge, you go to Versace as well.

There are a lot of labels behind the Versace brand — Versace Jeans Couture, Gianni Versace Couture, plus several more. It is in Gianni Versace Couture that you can find the most exquisite jewelry you have ever seen.

I have fallen in love with this Topaz and Diamonds White Gold Ring, for instance. Usually I am not the biggest fan of topaz but I really like this, especially the way it flows with the diamonds and the white gold, which form one of my favorite combinations. The topaz is a very opulent, very decadent blue and it is accented with two Vs in perfect symmetry, complete with brilliant cut, round pave diamonds.

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!

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!

Red Romancing the Stone

argyle-red-romanceIf you know L. J. West, then you know that the company is very well known for creating pieces featuring diamonds in rare and unquestionably stunning colors. If you are a fan of diamonds, then you have likely seen L. J. West’s gorgeous selection of green diamonds, blue diamonds, and pink diamonds.

However, the company has outdone even itself with what you are seeing here: the Argyle Red Romance. It is considered an utterly unprecedented piece, and it is quite easy to see what.

The ring is platinum with three matched diamonds in a color that tastefully, stunningly mixes red and purple. The stone in the center of the ring is a whopping 1.90 karats, while the stones bracketing it are 0.49 karats and 0.54 karats, respectively.

As you might expect, a ring like this fetches quite the premium price. Just to give you an idea, consider this: for a single red diamond which is not even an entire karat, a buyer at an auction paid one million dollars.

From Engagement Ring to Divorce Diamond

pejayb5605It has happened to all of us.  An ex boyfriend once bought us a promise ring which we can understandably no longer bring ourselves to wear.  Perhaps an engagement went downhill and you, of course, kept the ring, even though it is now languishing in the back of your drawer, unworn but not quite forgotten.  Worse yet, perhaps you have gone through the devastation that is a divorce, and have no idea what to do with the rings you once wore with pride.  You cannot bear to get rid of these rings, but neither do you want to wear them.  It seems like such a waste of diamonds and other precious stones though, does it not?  Until quite recently, your only real choices were to live with it or pawn them — and pawning is such a tough thing to do.  I mean, we are talking about diamonds here!

Fortunately, PeJay Creations has the answer to that problem.  Think about getting your old promise ring, engagement ring, or wedding ring into a divorce diamond.  It can become a hinged bracelet for some surprisingly affordable prices.
