Well another month has come and gone. I don’t know why just losing one day can make a month seem so short. Any theories? I guess it’s just one of those universal truths, but the good news is that it’s March, the month of St. Paddy’s Day, March Madness, and the traditional March blizzard in GA (maybe). So I’d like to start this post by wishing all of you with March birthdays, a very Happy Birthday! And also, to tell you a little bit about your birthstone, the lovely Aquamarine. Continue reading
It’s only been a couple of days, but we’re knee deep in awards season withdrawal. Ellen was hilarious, Jennifer Lawrence wore a backlace and fell down… again, Bette Midler was divine as always, the dresses were beautiful, and the jewelry, oh the jewelry. There are no words to describe just how much we love watching millions of dollars in jewelry being paraded down the red carpet. We hear that there might have been some movie stars in attendance as well, but we can’t be too sure since once we get our fill of dresses and jewelry, well we just don’t have time to devote to looking at people from the neck up.

It’s Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, whatever you want to call it, it’s today. Wohooo! A day when you can eat, drink, and be merry all you want. And not only is merriment suggested, it’s actually a requirement. However, this is not a Mardi Gras parade, much as I wish it were, and I will not be throwing beads at you… because, let’s face it, you could be in Cleveland for all I know, and I can’t throw that far. What I can do though, is “throw” up some pictures of my favorite Mardi Gras colored jewelry. I’m talking purple, green, and gold! Ta da!
The Oscars are over… *sniffle* But that just means that we get to bask in the glow of some serious jewelry! The saying is that when you feel great, you “feel like a million bucks” or if you’re some of our stars, a few million. With so many millions of dollars in jewels concentrated in one place you’d think that the Oscars would need to be sponsored by Brinks and the S.W.A.T team, but you never hear the headline “cat burglar strikes Academy Awards. But then again that’s probably because everyone would know immediately that Anne Hathaway was to blame. Catwoman reference anyone? Continue reading
Ok, so this year wasn’t a leap year… and while we’re happy to keep the year one day shorter, we do miss Leap Day and all of its shenanigans. Because on what other day does the world spin backwards, the IRS disband, the grass turn blue, and women ask their men to marry them. Ok, so maybe that never happens, I wish some of it would though, blue grass and no taxes? Wohoo! But wait, one of those was true. On Leap Day, chance favors the bold when women get down on one knee instead. So let’s journey back and get a look at just where that tradition came from and why it’s so great that it should be celebrated every year, February 29th or not! *Cue the rewind music!

Awards season has its arguably most exciting night coming up soon, and I for sure will be glued to my TV. Well not literally, but I’ll be watching intently, especially the red carpet portion. Oscar night is THE night for ogling beautiful jewels. And what a show it will be as literally thousands of carats and millions of dollars will be strutted down that famous carpet. So, in order to pump myself and all of you up for this bling-tastic occasion, I thought it would be fun to take a bit of a trip down memory lane at a few pieces that have stood out over the years.

It’s nice to know that even Godzilla can find love these days. Is there a match.com for giant reptiles I wonder? Although I have to say, his new bride looks just a little scared of her scaly new husband.
Whew, now that all of the Valentine’s Day hoopla is behind us, it’s time to focus on what really matters, people with February birthdays! Happy Birthday to you! So in your honor we’d like to dedicate this blog to your very own personal birthstone, the Amethyst. Continue reading
Let’s say I’ve won the lottery. WOHOOO! Now comes the fun part. What would I spend my millions on. Herein lies the problem. After you’ve bought the standard mansion, Ferrari, huge diamonds etc. there’s still going to be tons of money left over. (I’ve obviously won a very big lottery.)So what do I do with those extra millions? Well as we’ve learned, I love diamonds, but I assume that I will have bought enough to bedeck my wrists, neck, ears, and every one of my ten fingers, so what else is there? Well I’ll tell you. It’s something magical that creates the perfect solution to having more diamonds than you have fingers. Put them on your clothes! And not just any article of clothing, a t-shirt.
