Ever Notice the Jewelry Worn on Real Housewives?

Real Housewives Lisa Vanderpump jewelryThe two guilty pleasures of mine – the Real Housewives reality show and jewelry – are near and dear to my heart. And quite frankly, they feed into one another. Am I the only one to notice the truly remarkable pieces worn on the show? Sometimes I feel that way!

With the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills new season just starting, the number of magnificent pieces residing in the closets never ceases to amaze me. I mean – it’s really difficult to even say whose jewelry collection takes the cake – Erika Jayne or Lisa Vanderpump? It’s a tough call.

I am not proud to admit this, but I can truly gush and gaze over their various rings, bracelets, necklaces that are sported so casually. In fact, some of the housewives are decked out in the diamonds just taking the dog for a walk.

This is obviously to the extreme of luxury as that is seemingly the purpose of the Real Housewives series. However, there is something to be said for those stable, glamorous pieces of jewelry in one’s collection. Just like the ladies on the show, I think that a fine piece of jewelry is appropriate for many occasions and dresses up any outfit. Whether it’s a flashy bracelet or simple studded earring set, the right piece of jewelry makes a statement and be the highlight of an outfit. As the housewives make more than clear – a diamond can suit any occasion.

My appreciation for fine jewelry stems from the fact that I find it to be true art. Art that can be worn and appreciated by others and most importantly oneself. Regardless of how glamorous one’s everyday life is, every woman deserves to feel glamorous, gushed and gazed over. Embrace your inner Real Housewives and wear your favorite piece of jewelry – no matter whatever the occasion. It is okay to stand out and catch the eye of others!

Follow Novell on Twitter for Wedding Planning Ideas

In 2017, we decided to abandon our old approach to Twitter in favor of a new account. In other words – we started all over!

Gone are the thousands of followers cultivated since its beginning. Novell was an early adaptor to Twitter. But over the years, the platform has changed, as has the behavior of the average Twitter user.

So rather than try to fix what was in the process of breaking, we started posting to @novell_wedding. Quite honestly, it’s been an uphill battle. In this day and age, trying to attract an audience organically is quite tough. With a little persistence, our followers have grown. Some of our success has been due to our regular contests. Some has been because we post regularly about popular subjects such as food and travel. And wedding planning. We can’t forget the wedding planning!

Custom Shop Platinum Ring Features Rare Blue Diamond

Jewelry designer/television personality Robert Manse recently teamed with Novell Design Studio’s Custom Shop to create a personal, one-of-a-kind men’s platinum ring. Specially made to celebrate his twenty-five years in the jewelry industry, the solid platinum contemporary style showcases the brilliant “Manse Diamond.” One and a half carats in size, it has been Robert’s mission to find a perfect fancy intense blue diamond to set in his own custom creation. Not only has such a stone been discovered, but it is set for life in the worlds most precious metal!

What is a Blue Diamond?
Naturally blue diamonds have been found in mines of South Africa, Australia and India. Colored diamonds are a lot like snowflakes – no two are exactly alike. Blue is among the rarest colors in the diamond family. In fact, they are more rare than pink diamonds, and quite valuable. Their appearance is caused from boron trapped in the crystal’s structure.

Why did Robert Choose Platinum?
Platinum is considered to be the best precious metal for protecting expensive diamonds. Platinum is 100% hypoallergenic and naturally white in color, so it never needs to be rhodium plated (unlike white gold). It goes extremely well with colored stones. In fact, platinum holds them more secure than any other metal in the marketplace. Diamonds are the hardest gemstones and platinum is the most superior precious metal…a perfect combination.
