Is a Morganite Engagement Ring Right for You?

There’s a huge trend in bridal jewelry and engagement rings, and it’s not what you’re thinking. Yes, the halo is still hot hot hot. But things are getting warmer with a rosy outlook. Rose gold and pink and rosy hued gems are climbing in popularity with brides. The warm tones of pink gold enchant many an engagement ring shopper, and the soft pink tones of sapphires, diamonds, and one other particular stone evoke romance in their minds. That stone has exploded in popularity since the dawn of Pinterest: Morganite. Morganite was first discovered off the coast of Madagascar in 1910 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.

Favorite Fancy Jewelry Box Round up

The only thing we love nearly as much as ogling gorgeous jewelry is finding new ways to store it. Sometimes we’re blown away by the complete transformation of a fabulous midcentury piece of furniture into a gigantic repository for all things sparkly. This is the jewelry equivalent of having a dedicated dressing room for a closet (unless your Lisa Vanderpump, in which case said room has a jewelry section). And then there are the projects that convert precious wall space into a space-saving jewelry storage center. Never get dressed again in a rush, neglecting to accessorize because you simply can’t Read More →
