Gray is Good? Keep an Eye Out For This Jewelry Trend

We heard it first at the hair salons. Fashion forward women were having their hair dyed gray on purpose, overturning millennia of style rules. Now it’s the apparel and jewelry designers’ turn to take on the subdued shade. Fashion experts say it’s because gray pairs well with Pantone’s twin colors of the year – the soothing pink of Rose Quartz and the calming pale blue Serenity. According to JCK, a…

Exquisite Emeralds: May’s Birthstone is One of the World’s Rarest Gemstones

There are four gemstones that are universally recognized as precious all around the world: diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Of these, emeralds are by far the most valuable – carat for carat, a great emerald is exponentially more expensive than a comparable diamond. The rich green gemstones are May’s birthstone, and we thought we’d take a little time at looking at exactly why they’re so special. Emerald Jewelry Makes History…

Marquise Magic: Discover The Diamond Time Can’t Forget

MARQUISE MAGIC: The marquise cut diamond has been both wildly popular and almost universally shunned over the course of time. During the 1930s, and again during the 1980s, brides-to-be couldn’t get enough of the elegant elongated curves of the marquise cut. Since then, however, other cuts, including the princess, radiant, and cushion cuts have been more popular. But now the marquise cut is making a dramatic comeback. No less of…
