Engagement Ring Eye Candy: A Pop of Pink

On Wednesdays, we wear pink. And if you have a rose gold accented engagement ring then you get to wear pink every day. A privilege and a pleasure. And with major engagement ring designers like Verragio churning out fabulous rose gold engagement rings left and right, you have options, ladies. Another brand that RLJ carries that I’m smitten with, Uneek, does something similar. You can order any of their settings in rose, rose and white, or white, yellow or a two tone combination of white and yellow. I have to say that with these modern designs my favorite option is Read More →

Engagement Ring Eye Candy

It’s time for another rousing rendition of engagement ring eye candy! And today I’ve rounded up a nice mix of unsigned beauties and some new Uneek engagement rings. I wanted desperately to show off this beauty today, but it sold the instant we put it on the showroom floor. But no worries, RLJ has ple-henty more gorgeous rings to knock your socks off. Starting, as I like to do, with some new fancy yellow engagement rings. This cut cornered square radiant cut diamond is a beauty, with a Fancy Yellow VS1 grade from EGL and weighing in at 1.64 carats. Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Spooky Halloween Cocktails

Ok, so one’s spooky. The other is just beautiful. But the Faberge cocktail ring I’m referencing does happen to have a great fall palette. 18kt yellow gold splays out over three circles enameled int eh hottest fall 2014 colors: nude, wine and a warm citron yellow. The subtle texture adds interest, while not taking away form Faberge’s famed enameling. Gorgeous round brilliant diamonds are the focal point of each circle, weighing .12 carats total and showing off G/H color grades and VS clarity. The other cocktail is, indeed, spooky and perfect for a Halloween party. It’s not gross, just eerie, Read More →

Uneek Engagement Rings Eye Candy

So RLJ just started carrying this new designer line, Uneek Fine Jewelry, and I’m obsessed. Combine micropave with funky shapes and cuts, plus modern twists on classic jewelry mountings, and you have a recipe for a gorgeous and yes – unique- engagement ring. A solitaire gets a splash of sparkle from three sides of prong set accent diamonds embedded in mil grained white gold. The texture is subtle, but rich. Speaking of texture – again we’ve got diamonds coming from multiple angles, and a split shank that combines micropave, double mil grained borders, and graduated accent stones in the space Read More →

Just Right Spessartite

Spessartite garnets are some of the most vibrant, beautiful gems, and catch your attention like no other. They’re relatively uncommonly seen in jewelry – most garnets are the better known shade of deep red – so when you do see them, it’s a treat. They’re much brighter than other orange gems like citrine or even the exceedingly rare orange diamond. They’re closer to the color of fire opals, but obviously a totally different gem family (they’re a variant of garnet, like tsavorite.) Spessartite garnets have been growing in popularity, and Tiffany & Co. incorporated the gem into a few kew Read More →
