  • New Year and New Insurance Plans? To Insure Your Jewelry Or Not

    Starting the New Year can sometimes mean that we reevaluate something's and see what we can do better or what we need to change.  Being in the jewelry industry we thought we would help by talking about one of those hard questions about 'whether or not to insure your jewelry?'  Sometimes it might be one of those things that you never think about until you need it, well let's fix that and talk about it right now.

    Let's say you come home from a fun family vacation only to find out that you have been robbed.  This is a nightmare in every account, but let's talk about it affection your jewelry.  So now your engagement ring (because you don't like to travel with it), your husband's collection of watches, the earrings that are a family heirloom, and your whole collection of jewelry is gone.  All of this is just gone, because there was no insurance on it.

  • New Looks from Golden Globes 2019

    Starting a new year out with all the fashion from the Golden Globes is a great way to get new ideas for how to wear jewelry or even what is trendy.  We loved seeing so much green, all the stacks of bracelets, and of course all the sparkling diamonds.  One celebrity's look that really stood out was Amber Heard and how she was classy but piled with all the jewelry...because we absolutely LOVE jewelry!!  We especially loved how she mixes and matches her looks and added designer Marco Bicego.

    Amy Elliott a writer of 'All that Glitters' for JCK wrote a great article about how Heard's style and why she loves the look.  What do you think and do you stack up your jewelry? Continue reading

  • The Story Behind the Stone: When Bracelets were King

    The practice of adorning oneself with beautiful metals and stones is hardly a new concept. From ancient civilizations like that of Egypt to modern times, we have been endlessly fascinated decorating ourselves. And it’s not just the women who are compelled to decorate themselves with extravagant jewels. Persian, Babylonian and Egyptian men, especially nobility, were heavily bedecked with precious ornaments.

    Bracelets were a big item, as they emphasized arm gestures like waving or condemning foes in battle.

    Look Over There

    We need only to look at museum relics to understand the importance of bracelets for the male gender in ancient times. In early Egypt both adults and children wore brightly hued jewelry made of gold and precious stones. For much of its history, jewelry was an important story telling device. Not only did it convey the power and status of its wearer, but it offered protection against evil spirits and was essential when burying the deceased to insure a successful afterlife.

    Clothes, handbags, shoes and accessories that sport multiple solid colors, usually in bold and bright shades called colorblocking, have reappeared on the fashion scene in a big way the last few years, but the trend is not new. It first appeared in Yves Saint Laurent’s 1965 collection, which was inspired by the artistic styles of modern Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, whose paintings were a collection of geometrical and colorful shapes. This 1960s mod fashion may be passé, but just as trends in fashion often return and thrive again, colorblocking feels new. Continue reading
