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!

Stackable Rings are Becoming the New Wedding Band

Stackable rings make great wedding bands.

Brides are beginning to stray from the typical wedding band fashion as stackable rings are becoming increasingly popular. This trend is in part due to a newfound appreciation for the wedding band as an individual statement.

Traditionally the wedding band is simply stacked with the engagement ring and often masked by its glitz. However, this is now being challenged through the placement of multiple wedding bands on a single finger. In some cases, they are worn on a finger different from the engagement ring. This concept first emerged when brides began adding a third ring to signify a special moment such as a birth or anniversary. Now this single addition is being surpassed.

Stackable rings have evolved the wedding band search into a more creative process. There are endless possibilities to mix and match stones, textures, shapes, sizes and metals – creating a unique set just for one.

This is where the fun begins! Gone are the days when one had to pick a metal and stick with it. Now there is the idea that silver and yellow or rose gold can be coordinated to bring out the best in one another. Then comes in the choice of texture – another feature with many options. One can choose from braided, twisted, hammered, matte, rope, bead or cross hatch.

The intricacy of detail paid to each band adds to a specialization matched by few others. Despite each stackable ring being incredibly unique on it’s own, when combined makes for a rather understated statement. This is achieved as each ring chosen embellishes one another in lieu of masking.

There are not many cases where such collective contrast can transcend into unity. Stackable wedding rings are approaching a new frontier of wear-ability. Contrary to the popular belief that “less is more,” the additional bands are appealing to the everyday bride that desires a noticeable yet staple accessory. Its specialized detail can freshen any look without overpowering it.

However, the ultimate attraction of stackable wedding rings is determined by the individual themselves, as rings are chosen upon their unique vision.

Growing Popularity of Colored Diamonds

Roughly 1 out of 10,000 carats mined today represent “fancy” colored diamonds. Such scarcity eludes to a sense of exclusiveness that is very intriguing to today’s consumer.

Colored diamonds vary in tone, which is the ultimate determinant of price. A deeper color tone signifies greater rarity and consequently a higher price. Over the years, demand for colored diamonds has increased tremendously, one to note particularly would be the yellow diamond.

Growth can also be attributable to fashion trends and newfound affordability. The trendsetters of the fashion industry have adopted bright accessories as an essential to any ensemble, and it is the yellow diamond has evolved into exactly that piece. The yellow diamond acts as a pop of color unique to it’s “classic” diamond opponent. Contrary to it’s exclusive reputation the price tag is a surprisingly affordable option when diamond shopping.

Newfound affordability coupled with a reputation of luxury makes the yellow diamond extremely popular addition to one’s essential accessories.
