Designer Jewelry has a unique characteristic that non-name brand jewelry has. For example the perfect diamond color and clarity of Tiffany & Co. can hardly be replicated. Roberto Coin is known for always putting a signature ruby on all his pieces, and David Yurman specializes in the most amazing detail in his cable bracelets, rings, earrings, etc. Find out the latest styles that your favorite designers are putting out into the market.

Rose Gold Facts for Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day is comin’ in hot! And nothing is hotter this year than rose gold. Whether you want to propose this Valentine’s Day or you’re just looking for a sweet, sparkly something, rose gold is your best bet. Check some rose gold facts. Pure 24 karat gold is too soft to be used exclusively in jewelry. It would scratch, dent, and bend. So it’s blended with other metals, precious and otherwise, to create a more durable, beautiful alloy. This gorgeous alloy combines gold with copper, and sometimes silver, to produce a flattering blush. In 14 karat rose gold, the combo Read More →

Layering Necklaces

I love layering necklaces. Back in the olden days before I had a toddler I usually wore two at a time. Much to my delight they’re still going strong out there among fashionistas who don’t face a minute-by-minute risk of garroting if they wear them. And while there’s a few different approaches to layering necklaces (long lariat + dainty pendant, choker + pendant, pendant + pendant, etc.) I like the small, delicate touches best. They’re my favorite way to add a little symbolism – your kids’ initials, your birthstone, your husband’s anniversary gift to you – or even a way Read More →

Knockoff Engagement Ring – Always a Bad Idea

Hi there! If you’re new here, welcome. I’m re-posting a few of my old favorites for the new (and growing) audience here. I’m so happy you clicked over from Insta or Pinterest or Tumblr, and I hope you enjoy an insane amount of engagement ring eye candy and rambling advice about how to score a great deal on them. If you read through my posts about Cartier, you know how I feel about knockoffs. Not a fan. Not for designer jewelry, not for designer handbags, and certainly not for Swiss (“Swiss”) watches. When it comes to engagement rings though, my Read More →

Mother’s Day Gifts for New Moms

Mother’s Day Gifts for New Moms. Because you can’t buy sleep and she already asked you to get wine on your way home. Mother’s Day is May 8th. I repeat, Mother’s Day 2016 is May 8th. That’s in a smidge over two weeks, so now would be the time to start shopping. Unless you want to be like me and panic on May 2nd, frantically searching through awful novelty gifts to see what will arrive in time with Amazon Prime. Do as I say, not as I do! This year, in addition to trying to start shopping ahead of time Read More →

Designer Jewelry for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve requested flourless chocolate cake and designer jewelry. One of those can be homemade. We’re low-maintenence like that. Cartier, Tiffany and David Yurman just make excellent presents, that’s all. And even better if your Valentine is smart enough to shop estate. Why pay retail for something that was made to last a lifetime anyway? I take the same approach to pre owned Louis Vuitton (also an acceptable gift from any sweetheart.) And if you’d rather go that route, Sell Your Handbag has a great sale of Valentine’s Read More →
