Organize Your Favorite Jewelry with Nice Jewelry Boxes

14 Sep

After you have collected a few necklaces and rings you will quickly realize that you need a place to keep these special parts of your wardrobe. Any woman with more than a few pieces will find that it is not only difficult but tedious to keep jewlerly without a special place for their keeping. Jewelry boxes have been around for most of human history and they were invented for just this purpose.

The beauty of modern jewelry boxes can be found in their many different compartments and levels. The purpose of all the hooks, compartments, and otherwise is to keep necklaces from getting jumbled together or rings from getting lost in a pile. These special holders and places are created specifically to keep your jewelry both safe and well organized.

The extra benefit to jewelry boxes is that fact that they make great conversation pieces. They tend to be extremely beautiful and are often ultra-feminine. The make a great detail in your room in addition to keeping your precious belongings safe.

The Beauty of Jewelry

9 Aug

I have always been enamored by the elegance that the right accessory can bring to a woman's natural beauty. The right necklace, bracelet, or wrist watch does more than just accentuate an outfit, it can accentuate the woman. Not only does jewelry bring out natural beauty in many cases, it also brings out the personality of the woman wearing it.

Think about how much jewelry can change your perception of a woman. Imagine a woman wearing a hemp choker necklace and a string of shells. Now imagine her wearing a string of pearls and simple matching earrings. This woman's whole persona has changed before your eyes just from the neck up. This is something that only jewelry can do.

Great jewelry doesn't have to be expensive either. Dazzling jewelry like solitaire studs and diamond rings can be affordable if you know where to look. And though jewelry isn't the automatic ticket to being beautiful, it is way of enhancing beauty and transferring a message to the world.

Something as seemingly insignificant as a pair of earrings can change not only how people view you, but how you view yourself.

That Little Blue Box

14 Feb

That Little Blue Box

Tiffany and Valentine's Day go hand-in hand.

Let's face it – even for the skeptics among us, there's magic associated with that little blue box.

I've only received two Tiffany & Co. gifts in my life, and I'll always remember them. The excitement associated with the box was so great that even though the contents didn't quite work out (the keychain wouldn't stay screwed shut and a silver necklace was traded in for an upgrade), I still remember the gift-givers with gratitude.

I know everyone complains that Tiffany is overpriced, but their designs are classic and that's what you pay for. What I've always really appreciated is their silver jewelry. After all, how many stores with a branch on Rodeo Drive offer really nice pendants and earrings under $100?

And best of all, if you don't love it, you can trade it in, which is how I ended up with these indispensable twist knot earrings. Now there's a gift to remember.

It’s Not a Fake!

6 Feb

It's Not a Fake!

Now I've seen it all. Amazon.com, where I buy books and vitamins, is selling high-end jewelry. And I mean really high-end.

Amazon.com is selling a $420,000 ring. I kid you not – I found it on the site, and my jaw hit the floor. Who mail-orders a half million dollar piece of jewelry? And what's the return policy?

Almaz Jewelers appears to be the source of much of this high-end stuff. And they do, in fact, have a very fair return policy. Within 30 days, you can return or exchange any item (unless you've had it special ordered – engraved, for example). I'm not going to lie to you – they have some really beautiful things. This stunning pair of sapphire and diamond earrings takes my breath away.

I mentally add up my entire life savings, and click to another page.

I find myself looking at what appears to be the most expensive piece of jewelry on Amazon.com. Priced at $1,111,000.00, The Natural Sapphire Company is offering a 69.35 carat natural untreated blue sapphire ring. Do I need to tell you that there were no customer reviews for this product? I mean really. The stone is so huge it looks like costume jewelry.

It may cost a million dollars, but in one way, it's a bargain: shipping is free!

Gemstone Gelateria

28 Jan

Gemstone Gelateria

I love gelato. When I was in Italy a million years ago, I fell in love with Gianduja – which is a sweet chocolate mixed with hazelnut paste. When I was married, I made sure Gianduja gelato was part of the dessert menu.

So it seems cruel, somehow, that this stunning necklace is called a "Gelato Necklace." I can only guess the designer, Ippolita Rostagno, looked at a case of gelato with its many colors of ice cream and chose the name that inspired her. If only I could look at a case of ice cream and think of clever ideas. My brain usually blanks out and all I can think is, "Should I get the large and be happy? Or get the small, and remain guilt-free?"

On Ippolita's website, she has many lovely colors of this necklace. This particular chain has mother of pearl, clear quartz, blue topaz, London blue topaz, turquoise, light amethyst and green amethyst.

Green was the color of my skin when I saw it: I am in love.
