What’s New – Vol. 51

Baubles, Bling and the Latest Things

Mid-Century Modern design is rapidly gaining popularity.  The design aesthetic from the 1950’s and 1960’s encompassed everything from home decor to jewelry accessories.  The sputnik-like light fixtures and iconic wooden furniture from those decades is highly sought after and commands big prices.  

This beauty is a stellar example of fine jewelry from that era.  The influence of the 1940’s is strong except that this ring is made entirely of platinum – a metal that was unavailable to jewelers during the war years.  A decidedly refined Retro vibe radiates from this little ring.  Asymmetrical style appeals to me – I love the luxurious unbalanced panache.

Thirty round diamonds have been pavé set along one side while a playful spray of five straight baguette diamonds burst from the other.  These thirty-five diamonds offer a full carat of dazzling sparkle.  That three-pronged spray juts flawlessly off the hand when this diminutive charmer is worn on a pinky finger.  

If you are as smitten with this Mid-Century ring as I am – stop by the store and try it for yourself.  It’s available now for $2,650.00.

Baubles, Bling and the Latest Things

You cannot plan for the unexpected.

535.  If we’re talking about dollars left in your bank account, that’s a relatively small number.  If we’re talking about how many dollars a piece of jewelry costs, it’s still a relatively low number…  but in both cases, the extenuating circumstances are everything.  Perhaps you only have $535 left in your account…  but tomorrow is payday.  Or it may be that you have a winning lottery ticket in your pocket.  It could be that you’ve fallen in love with a ring on our site that is priced at $535…  you may have to think about the purchase.  But maybe your anniversary is next week and your significant other has been hounding you for a gift suggestion…  or maybe you’ll decide to put it on layaway or even take advantage of our interest free financing.  

535.  Actually, it’s the number of blogs I have published.  I can’t say it’s the number that I have written, because I have deleted so many of them in an attempt to find something new and engaging to talk about.  That’s a lot of jewelry…  incredible, inspiring and oh-so desirable jewelry.  As you can imagine, it can be challenging to find something fresh – something eye-catching.

Sometimes that piece is totally unexpected…  like this one.  At a time when yellow gold is experiencing an overwhelmingly large resurgence  – this platinum ring managed to stop me in my tracks.  I’m rarely attracted to the color green but the deep olive tone of this marquise-cut jade is refreshingly lovely.  The ballerina style hasn’t been popular since the Mid Century Modern era – but there’s something striking about the spray of baguette and round diamonds that surround the center jade.

Getting back to numbers, the jade weighs 2.05 carats.  The fourteen baguette diamonds have a combined weight of .54 carat while the twenty-four round diamonds offer an additional .29 carat of sparkle.  Accompanied by a report from the International Gemological Institute of America, this ring has a retail replacement value of $5,740.00.  We are featuring it on our website for just $2,750.00 – that’s more than a 50% savings!  Today, everyone is talking about numbers…  whether it be the price of gas or the cost of a loaf of bread.  In a time when everything is getting more expensive, we’re saving you money.  The 535th blog piece is quite a showstopper AND it’s available at a significantly reduced price.  Check it out online or in the store today.
