Happy Happy Hour! It’s the second best time of the week, Thursday evening, with Friday about to dawn in all of its TGIF glory. But let’s kick off the merriment early – I have the perfect thing to celebrate.
This is an impeccable, jaw dropping, 66.05 carat aquamarine, certified by the GIA as octagonal, step cut and transparent. I know, gemstone reports just don’t have the same cache as diamond reports do, do they? But no matter – look at that color! And transparent isn’t effusive enough to describe the clarity. It’s D&D certified as crystal clear, like looking into the depths of a Nordic pool, or Jack Donaghy’s eyes. And it’s surrounded by 4.5 carats of round brilliant diamonds, H/I in color and VS2/SI1 in clarity. Four and a half carats! All nestled nicely into a lovely platinum mounting. It’s the perfect holiday accessory to wear to your first round of holiday parties, surely starting to pepper your social calendar this week. And you know this cocktail commands another just as luxurious.
This concoction is the Icy Spicy martini by Blue Ice Vodka. It’s like a dirty martini, but for heat lovers. Jalapeño juice instead of olive juice? Perfect combination of sultry and traditional, and would look fabulous clutched in any hand wearing the cocktail above it.
