Just a few questions to ask yourself to start preparing for your day... 1. The first question for me is my favorite. What should you consider when choosing jewelry for the big day? This is so personal. If you are not the type to wear big earrings on a daily basis, why would you wear big earrings on your wedding day? Just be the little bit more glittery version of yourself on your big day. Don't try to reinvent the wheel. This is where Brides go wrong. 2. There is a specific a
For those of you who may not know... Coachella is the Next Generation "Burning Man" concert... An outside festival of music where you are bound to run into “A list” celebrities like Leo DiCaprio, Taylor Swift and her girl team, the “who’s who” in Hollywood with acts ranging from Guns N Roses, and Calvin Harris to LCD Sound system. For me, topping the music is the fashion. With Fashion Icons attending Coachella, the trends are right there for all to see. Simply put, the fashio
Remember color? As a black and white type of girl, I barely do, but when it comes to accessorizing, jewelry is the perfect way to add a splash of your favorite hues. Play with it! I’m picturing a rose gold choker complete with colorful tourmaline's or multi-color sapphires. Instantly your LBD (little black dress!) is more than head turner, it’s now a showstopper!
Can an Amethyst be the cure for what ails you? Well, some say yes! Sounds great to me. A healing piece of jewelry, which is a beautiful color and a must for spring, I'm in! Some say Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer too. I should buy a huge one! Amethyst is supposed to re-balance the body and open energy channels. This is making me want to get on my Yoga mat. Some therapist use non-gem quality amethyst in Therapeutic Bio-Mats. They lay their patients on the mat promising t
It was all glamour, but major flash also. Right after that movie we saw the rise of Pink Gold. A softer and more subtle look. At that point yellow gold popularity was dealt a low blow. Especially when prices went sky high in 2011. Now happily for the jewelry consumer gold has stabilized and yellow gold is on the rise once again. Whether it's bangles, collars, earrings, stack able bracelets or cuffs you need some yellow gold in your life. It's summer, have fun, pile on a few.
The autumn runway was anything but sleek and sassy. It was all Razzle Dazzle. Designers have piled palettes and spread sequins on to skirts, dresses and even pant suits. This proves any silhouette can be party ready! BUT... with all that glitter on your wardrobe you need to "simmer down" the jewels. Stick with fabulous, never out of style diamond stud earrings and a beautiful gem colored ring to match your flash or that simple diamond bracelet that has a hint of sparkle aroun
For those obsessed with Hermes, bags, shoes, scarves, RTW (ready to wear)... and more! Now the partnership of Apple and Hermes is rocking the fashion world. Starting this past Christmas with only basic color straps, now the two companies have gone "pantone wild." Plus, for the first time in Hermes history (Girls you know how tough the Hermes policies can be! ) Apple Watch and Hermes bands will now be sold separately. So, now you can switch out bands to match your fashion f
You Heard Me! The trend is on, and it's right in your house. All I have seen is pastels, lace, the girly - girl fashions of spring. But... in the midst of it all is ” The Menswear Movement." I love it! I am just not that girly - girl and I see a fabulous option to be on trend. Give me the days of Lauren Bacall, Madonna, Kim Basinger in 91/2 Weeks, with a sultry man's jacket and tie, his silk smoking jacket, his four square pocket handkerchief and I feel the power. Pair it all
Here in Miami, the trend that continues to rock my world is low-key-easy-to-wear-modern. It’s a thing. My recommendation is that if you’re going to wear this look, you better do it with traffic-stopping confidence. This might be easier to achieve than you think. Simply take your “I don’t care” sweat suit and revolutionize it with statement jewelry. Grab those big bold bracelets and mix them up. Yellow gold. Pink gold. White gold. These days they don’t have to be all one color
One of my favorite designers at the Basel Fair is Pasquale Bruni. Their flower motif jewelry is to die for, and ladies the trend for floral jewelry is hotter than ever. Even look at shoes this spring, with all the beautiful floral patterns. Everyone will be wearing this look this spring. Easter is over and the time is now! I happen to own a ring from their Petite Garden Collection. All the diamonds are set in rose gold. One ring is a big petal flower that sits on your middle
