The descendants of Arab’s diva had put this necklace for sale. This necklace was flaunted by Umm Kulthoum at number of her stage performances. The pearl necklace with its multihued enamel and white stone minutiae was designed in 19th century India. It was a gift to the Umm by diva by Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late president of the United Arab Emirates in 1975 when she was 70

Since 1992, Sparkle N Dazzle is engaged into an online business of fine jewelry and gifts. But incidentally, I came to know about them months back only, which is again too late but a little early for me. My sister’s marriage is on cards. And one of our family traditions is going with the flow of diamonds. They have a huge collection of elegant diamond rings designed especially for wedding or engagement occasions.
My hubby bought me one ruby ring on our fifth anniversary. It was then I came to know about that shop. Every time I carry that ring, I get flooded with compliments. Today everyone believes in gifting affordable sapphire rings, ruby rings, emerald rings, wedding anniversary rings and eternity rings to make their relationship priceless. The company uses only the finest materials from certified diamonds to finest platinum and gold and picks the best elements to add elegance to it.

Pricey things interest me but I can’t afford to possess all. And thus window shopping remains on the cards offering me a soothing eye pill.

DIAMOND PENDANT


How about getting a diamond pendant as your first anniversary gift? Girls love the very thought and go crazy on getting one. I believe their can be no better way than this to express your love for your beloved. History reveals the practice of carrying pendants and necklaces dates back to Stone Age when pendant comprises of stones and shells. I am fond of carrying plain dresses with deep necklines and hence keep on hunting for matching accessories that gels with my outfit.

They say diamonds form an eternal connection between loved ones. And the form that enables diamond do the needful is well performed by eternity rings. I would love to narrate a small story before you to make you realize the worth of eternity rings. Joe DiMaggio gave Marilyn a platinum diamond eternity ring encrusted with 35 baguette-cut diamonds at their wedding in 1954. And lately the ring got sold at an auction for $772,500 to an unnamed bidder. Thus it is not wrong to say that eternity rings are priceless and must to commemorate an occasion like wedding.

Lately I happen to visit an online store that has a huge variety of diamonds, fine anniversary gemstones, diamond wedding rings, eternity rings and wedding bands and certified diamonds. After reaching them I came to know that they change their stock frequently. Also, if you compare their price with any other online store then their rates are competitive with an assured quality.

cuff Wearing A Bug On Your Cuff Can Be Fashionable

You can love them, hate them but the truth is that you can’t ignore them. Yep, you guessed it right; we are talking about bizarre jewelry and the fact that they never go out of fashion as long as you have the attitude to carry it off. And the one we are just going to introduce you to is as crazy as it gets, but it stands splendid in its uniqueness. The name is Shagreen Cuff with Gold Vermeil Bug and the name itself defines what the accessory is all about.

As we know, Shagreen is already quite popular amongst the fashionistas, especially the pure sting ray leather ones but the creepy bug on this one might repel them on first sight. However, we are definite that once the eye falls on the pretty rubies and sapphires on the insect, perspectives might change in a jiffy. Reminiscent of the Egyptian times of yore, this cuff would work wonders with your goth ensemble and actually win you some envious glances.

The cuff comes in size 2 1/2″ W and is made� from a good quality gray Shagreen and the Vermeil bug sits pretty on it in 14K gold, heavily decorated with precious stones like rubies, sapphires, green agates and crystals. It is priced at $1,450

Fashionable Stackable Rings

daniel-k-stacking-bands Daniel Korens Fashionable Stackable Rings

Daniel Koren has stamped a favorable impression of his creativity on the fashion critics. Last year, his Prêt‐� ‐Porter Collection with black and white diamonds was quite something. Even the colorful stackable bangles came to become a very popular trend. And now, Koren is trying to keep up with everyone’s expectations thanks to the launch of a whole line of brilliantly colored rings.

The biggest attraction these rings have is that they can both be worn singly or stacked. We do agree the design and pattern may not be something new but the diamonds and gemstones like rubies and the sapphires in various colors bring a new spark to the rings that are made in 18K white, rose and yellow gold to complement the colors of stones used.

As� we already mentioned, the design is pretty simplistic with many many precious stones queuing up in three lines along the circular ring. Among the color of stones you can pick between dark pink, green, dark blue, light green, white ice and orange brown. By the way, you also have the option of buying the whole range to stack your finger. The starting range is $2,850 and goes on to $10,050

Rolex Daytona Shouts

rolex_cosmograph_daytona1 Rolex Daytona Shouts Bling But In Style

Rolex is the ruler among watches, and there is no doubt about that one. It is the perfect statement of luxury with an inimitable panache for style that is to die-for. It is rather rare to see any high bling action from the luxury brand, but for once we were taken aback, and pleasantly so too. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Diamond Chronometer Chronograph will set your heart racing.

The watch’s frame has been made in white gold with a width of 40mm. Two rows of diamonds line the whole structure with Arabic numerals in black enamel. Even the dials are made of diamonds. The whole presence is appropriately complemented by the white strap in leather. There is one more model that you might take a look at, this one has the numbers in blue with a little difference in the arrangement of diamonds along the frame of the watch.

This Chiago-based creative mind is deepy influenced by the oceans, a fact that is reverberated by the accessories she makes. Although, starting her career only in 2003, we are told that she has been desigining with flowers and ribbons ever since she was eight.

The fringes of rhinestone on her Pink Rhinestone and Pearl Fringe Necklace are stunning to say the least. This treasure measures up to 17″ and encompasses clear crystal clusters, pink alabaster Swarovski crystals and rhinestones sitting pretty on an oxidized sterling silver chain. The freshwater pearls have 14 carat gold accents. Just combine te necklace with some messy hair, and you shall be the belle of any ball you go to.

Steelers rule the Super Bowl perhaps like no other and they have no intentions of playing it down. And that is why they have come up with their rings. Yes, the pride of winning the title six times is reflected in the brilliantly cut diamonds surrounding the Steelers logo on the rings. You don’t have to look closr to find yellow, red and blue stones in the shape of hypocycloids all sitting stop a football-shaoed design created with 32 other diamonds.

The jewelry designer has been quite generous with the ices as you find seven more diamonds on each tip of the football to symbolify the team’s seven AFC Championships. And when you add them up, the number 14 stands for the numer of Division titles in Steelers history.

And that is not all. Surprisingly, the rings are able to wrap up quite a lot around them including the six Lombardi Trophies rising from Heinz Field to mark the support of the Steelers fans. The Steeler colors also get representation in yellow gold with black antique backgrounds

Roberto Coin’s Cento Jewelry

cento_jewelry_roberto_coin Roberto Coins Cento Jewelry Collection Dazzles

Diamonds are the ultimate form of luxury. Now, famous jewelry designer Roberto Coin has given this precious ice a more exquisite form in his new Cento Diamond Collection. What makes the cento unique is the simple fact that it has a 100 facet diamond cut. Which means that unlike the traditional cut, this one flaunts 37 facets on just top alone while the bottom has 63 facets instead of the usual 33 and 24 respectively. The extra number of facets allows the diamond to shine with hundreds of reflections of light.

Might we add that this kind of cut is applied to every single diamond used to construct the Cento. All the stones weigh over 0.7 carats and come from the category ‘flawless’ and ‘small inclusions, not visible to the naked eye’. Coin has used only colorless and nearly colorless diamonds for his design.

Again, Coin’s diamonds come certified by the KPCS which implies that the precious stones come from conflict free areas. We also hear that Coin is so happy with the response his Cento collection has recieved that he has decided to add two all-new spectacular pendant necklaces to the collection

Carl F. Bucherer is in limelight again due to a new creation that goes by the name Patravi T-ChronoGrade.

Serena Garbo Lady Watches

Bertolucci Serena Garbo Lady timepiece with all the standards set for a refined fashion for the summer. A spectacular design, this one is the female version of the recently launched men’s Serena Garbo watch line which was much appreciated by the darker sex. There are quite a few models in the new women’s collection but we particularly liked the Serena Garbo Animation Mosaico.

To start with, the dial of the watch reminds you of a game board and most of it has been wilved with Opaline with pink hues and several cut rubies thrown in. You might wonder what the solitary 8 is allo about. Wel, it is considered lucky in many Asian cultures. The 36.5mm wide watch has a bezel that is spectacularly lined with a number of princess cut diamonds.

The insides reveal an impressive SWiss quartz movement. The watch hands are shaped like leaves and are plated in rhodium. The anthracite colored lacquer applied to he mid section of the hands makes for a cool innovative llok. The strap is white leather, and this is what that makes the watch so summerish.

Celebrity Dress Fashion

feature photo


We’ve all sat there watching Strictly Come Dancing and wondered where Tess Daly got her dress from, or flicked through the celebrity magazines drooling over those gorgeous gowns worn to the award ceremonies and dreamed about how lovely it would be to wear those designer dresses. Well dream no more, here is your chance to dress like a celebrity whilst giving to charity at the same time.

The Closet Liverpool is a website set up by Claire Cooper, Leah Hackett and Jennifer Metcalfe otherwise know as the McQueen sisters from Hollyoaks and it is such a great idea. Celebrities are loaned dresses to wear for awards or to present shows, which always seems bizarre to me since the celebs are supposed to be the ones who can afford to buy this stuff, but it works for the designers to get their work shown, but then what happens to these dresses? Well now you can hire these, but instead of the hiring agencies just making their money, The Closet Liverpool give a donation to a local cancer charity so everyone’s a winner! If you loved Tess Daly in the stunning Philip Armstrong electric blue dress above on Strictly Come Dancing and you’re a size 10, then it can be hired for £130.
