Finding Cheap Jewelry Online

24 Sep

there are a number of websites that offer cheapest rates when it comes to earrings, necklaces and diamonds. You might think that this is too good to be true, but because more online stores do not have to rent out an actual store, online jewelers are able to sell their products at a much cheaper price.

You can expect to receive sometimes 20 to 50 percent off the retail price. This can come in handy if you are thinking of purchasing during the sale and promotional periods. Another benefit of shopping online for jewelry can also mean that you are able to find not only the best deals, but shop in the convenience of your home.

With her unique style and design, Kathleen Nowak Tucci was able to gain the attention of Vogue magazine as one of the up coming and rising jewelry designers.

Coral: Too Precious To Wear

Coral: Too Precious To Wear

When I was in New York recently, I passed a Tiffany & Co. window with an ocean theme. I didn't think much of it – just another marketing gimmick. It turns out that the theme was a little too subtle for me: Tiffany was actually trying to make a statement.

"The theme of the window display underwater world is designed to inform the public that coral is a living thing which can account for the coral reef systems to provide food and breeding sites for the reproduction of marine organisms," says the Tifffany & Co. website.

I admire them for taking a stand, and for actually caring. As consumers, our insatiable appetite for pink coral jewelry has been terrible for our reefs. Imagine the clownfish Nemo without a reef to hide in.

Okay, invoking a Disney character is truly under the belt, but things have gotten so bad that scientists and conservationists are urging industries to act where governments have not.

For more info about coral, check out Too Precious To Wear. In addition to Tiffany, the site lists other jewelry and fashion designers who've gotten on board. With Paloma Picasso and Reem Acra on the list, you'll be in good company.

When It’s Over… Who Keeps the Ring?

When It's Over... Who Keeps the Ring?

When an engagement ends after twelve days, who should keep the ring? You'd think the answer would be pretty cut-and-dry in that short amount of time: the girl should return the ring and everyone goes on their merry way.

Not so in the case of Roger Adler and Rena Hope Friedman. She insisted on keeping the 4-carat diamond engagement ring valued at $58,000. On the day after she received the ring from Roger, she reportedly had it appraised and convinced the appraiser to put her down as the ring's owner, making it easier for her to resell it.

Roger broke off the engagement when, after asking that he buy a new BMW and first class tickets to Australia for their honeymoon, she refused to allow his elderly parents to attend the wedding.

Roger, for his part, is now suing her, claiming she has a history of persuading men to marry her, and then breaking off the engagement and keeping the ring. Now there's a line of work I never thought to pursue.

Chopard vs A $220,000 Ring

19 Feb

Multi-millionaire Anne Hendricks Bass is suing the Shangri La Hotel in Singapore, where she allegedly lost a ring worth $220, 000 while she was staying at the hotel last year.

According to court documents, she said she placed the ring on a table in the bedroom of her two-room suite at about 6.30pm that day, shortly before getting a massage.

She said two hotel employees were with her for about an hour in the room, while another entered at about 9.15pm to deliver a meal she ordered.

Ms Bass claimed she realised the ring was missing only at 10pm, when she was about to check out.

Now she's filing for damages, saying that either the hotel was negligent or its employees might have stolen the Paris-made gold ring, which had a 6.41 carat diamond.

A ring worth $220,000! Geez, these are the kind of jewelry that's totally beyond my imagination. Even in my dreams, the most expensive I've ever wished for was perhaps a Tiffany or Chopard eternity ring. Talk about different social strata!
