GEORGIAN JEWELRY

Sadly, as a result, very little genuine Georgian jewelry exists today. As well as the reduced number of pieces being produced or surviving ones being used to finance the army abroad, Georgian jewelers had the habit of melting down pieces that went out of fashion. They would then re-use the metals and reset the gemstones. Even pieces that might have survived are very difficult to identify, as both makers and assay marks didn’t come into common use until much later. If a genuine piece of Georgian jewelry appears, it is far more likely to be dated towards the end of the period than the beginning.

All three of the design styles in the Georgian era suffered similar problems with the availability of precious metals and gemstones. At the time, the world was still very much beset with conflict. This meant that being that there was a lack of raw materials, many existing pieces of jewelry were re-appropriated to pay for the wars. This is especially true towards the end of the 18th century and into the early 19th.

THE WAYS TO CHOOSE A PERFECT EARRING

Posted on 3rd September 2018 in Earrings, Jewelry

Earrings are often stunning on the red carpet. Now this a good inspiration as you can see how they look on people, but don’t get blown away by the fact that these celebrities wear very expensive jewelry. Fact is that the red carpet is a marketing show. Nothing more and nothing less. It might be slightly superficial, but at the same time it is big business for the luxury companies of this world and one of the rare moments they get to shine. Most of the jewelry does not belong to the stars and they will be dressed and bejeweled by stylists and companies.

Gassan owns a few famous jewelry stores in the Netherlands and have their own line of jewelry too: Choices by DL. The first three from top to bottom are all by Choices by DL and so is the green pendant and the earring right in the middle with the moonstone. The purple pair of earrings is by Gumuchian, and the blue long pendant earrings are by Bellon. The organic touch and look of the black and rose gold plated silver earrings are by Pesavento and the little lanterns with citrine are by Syna. The satin gold with the blue topaz are made by Bicego.

If you have no pair of earrings yet, you might want to consider to choose a classic pair of hoops or a smaller button like earring. Maybe even a simple pair of pearl earrings, if this is your style and taste.

Choosing the perfect earring is not as difficult as it may seem. My first advice would be to spend a lot of time, and one can easily do that online too, looking at various styles. After that, I would advice you to consider whether this earring is the ónly pair of earrings that you’ll own, or if you have already some different pairs at home. Choosing the right earring can be a lot of fun and really do something for your outfit and face!

An earring can really lift up your outfit and bring a little extra sparkle to your face. It’s the piece of jewelry, together with the necklace, that people will notice first when you look at them. It can add color or sparkle. Make a statement or show your sense of class. It can be really a fashion item too.

The different types of necklace chain styles are based on the same principle of links being connected together to make a long, continuous piece.The links can be processed using various treatment methods, however, to produce a variety of results. Treatment methods make each of the different types of necklace chain styles distinctly different from each other.

This method will change the shape of an individual link so that it will look completely different from its original form. Dies, templates, and tools are used to swage a link. The result is a dramatically different link from the original.Classic chain styles have been around for thousands of years, and are the most versatile of all the types of necklace chain styles. So, what are the different types of classic chains?

An anchor chain is similar to a flattened curb chain, but each link is reinforced with a vertical bar running through it.

The anchor chain style is very popular due to its strength, durability, and versatility. The chain looks beautiful with small links, but larger links make for a stunning statement piece.

Love this trio of bracelets from Laurie Geller

Posted on 22nd August 2018 in Jewelry

Laurie Geller | Gem Gossip

This was the second year that the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show was located at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will be it’s new home from now on! Next year AGTA will also be in the same building, so there will be antique jewels AND incredible gems! This year’s show was lots of fun–I spent two back-to-back days mostly focusing on taking photos, meeting new people and of course buying! The second day I had an on-camera interview that I did in conjunction with the show, which I’m excited to share soon.

This year’s reoccurring theme for me was bracelets! I kept being drawn to bold bangles, cuffs, tennis bracelets of all sizes, eras and price points. You could probably tell from my recap photos–I shockingly have more bracelet wrist stack photos than my typical Show Me Your Rings shots. I did notice that an abundance of bracelets were present at the show…and rings were slightly lacking. It could obviously be due to the demand of rings, as most people tend to buy rings, with some shops even exclusively selling rings only. If you attended the show, did you notice that too?? I’d love to hear.

A bag model Gucci fashion house launched for the fall winter season of 2013, Lady Lock is actually an evergreen bag with a retro flair that you will wear for years and still not have enough of. The retro touch is actually explained by the inspiration the designers found in the house’s earlier collections. Gucci Lady Lock Bag is a way of reinventing and reinterpreting iconic models bearing the same “Gucci Made in Italy” signature. This is how the Italian fashion designers told us, once again, that the past can be a great inspiration for the present, and they are not the only ones.

The rounded and bold shape of the bag is easily recognized and so is the solid metallic clasp. What fascinated anyone who has seen this 2013 model is the firm pair of handles made of bamboo and the neat aspect of the bag provided by the ecological raw materials used for its manufacturing. The interior of the bag is lined with suede that comes in a sweet pink color. Also inside the bag you will find a safe pocket closing with a zipper for secure carrying around your documents and valuables.

A reinvented and reinterpreted iconic model by Gucci, this bag will never go out of fashion and it will immediately turn into your best companion. Its large size allows you to carry with you all the things you need during the day, no matter if we are talking about your whole makeup arsenal, your briefs and papers, or safety medical kit. The choice of colors is also great, especially if you love python leather or a pink shade of purple. Gucci Lady Lock is a purchase decision you will not regret as it will remain trendy and reliable as long as you want it to.

NEW AND EXCITING KNOCKOFF LOUIS VUITTON TWIST MALLETAGE BAGS

Posted on 8th August 2018 in Uncategorized

The knockoff Louis Vuitton Twist Malletage bags are new and exciting and I couldn’t be happier that I found such amazing replicas. Everything from their design to their surprising functionality made me add them to my lust-list. 2015, get ready for some serious shopping!

The knockoff Louis Vuitton Twist Malletage bag might seem small at a first look but don’t let its tiny appearance push you away! These bags are actually roomier than they look thanks to the wide bottom that gives an extra storing space. Son this chic replica LV bag is not just eye-catching but also a good companion that will hold all your essentials!

The turn-lock is also extremely ingenious as it allows the flap to open so easily! The LV metal signature on the front is the most notable feature of the Twist Malletage Lock Bag. It has a modern feel to it and it also gives a 3D effect that will draw the attention of many.

I was curious what the “malletage” is about and I found out that it actually comes from LV’s tradition of putting the diamond pattern lining on their trunks. I think this is a really nice touch and the crisscross pattern just adds to their charm!

The Louis Vuitton Twist Malletage bag is part of the Spring / Summer 2015 collection, so it’s as new as it gets. This small shoulder bag is actually quite roomy and the thick chain strap comes with a leather shoulder support, so functionality is not a problem. This replica LV is eye-catching thanks to its diamond quilted exterior, two-toned ombre shades and, of course, the reversed logo on the front. The blue/white combination is just perfect for the warm season!

Swarovski Garnet Earrings

Cannes 2018 Luncheon

Swarovski welcomed select guests to an exclusive luncheon on the rooftop of the JW Marriot hotel on Cannes’s most famous stretch, La Croisette, to preview all the brand’s latest fine jewelry collections. Nadja Swarovski was joined by Penélope Cruz, and friends including Lucy Walker, Richard Gianorio, Kathleen Beckett, Mademoiselle Agnès, to toast the beautiful pieces which champion conscious luxury

The three in-house designed colored collections strike a more contemporary note than the classic created diamond collections debuted by the brand last year. The pieces feature precision-cut genuine gemstones, including Swarovski Genuine Topaz, garnet and agate, alongside a rainbow of created gemstones, including created sapphire, created ruby, created corundum and Swarovski Created Diamonds. For extra conscious credentials, the stones in these collections are also set in 18-karat Fairtrade Gold – as will all the brand’s fine jewelry pieces going forward.

The gold is sourced through the Fairtrade system from the Minera Limata Limitada co-operative in Peru. This environmentally responsible gold mining project provides local alpaca breeders with additional income and promotes the sustainable development of the Limata community. Meanwhile, the created gemstones are man-made in state-of-the-art laboratories, yet have the same exceptional qualities as mined gemstones, making them identical to the naked eye.

With its exquisite new fine jewelry collections, Atelier Swarovski proves that luxury not only means beautiful craftsmanship, it also means crafting beauty with sustainability at its heart.

At this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Atelier Swarovski turned the red carpet green with a little help from friend of the brand and actress Penélope Cruz. At the opening-night premiere of her new film, Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben), Cruz unveiled pieces from her first Atelier Swarovski fine jewelry collection, which shines a light on conscious luxury.

The stunning earrings and ring worn by Cruz are made with the most responsibly-sourced materials available, including Swarovski Created Diamonds and created rubies set in 18-karat Fairtrade Gold. This glamorous display of eco-chic, captured in the dazzle of Cannes, underscores Atelier Swarovski’s deepening commitment to sustainable design. Following this sneak peak, the full collection will be launched during Paris haute couture week in July.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Boombox Bag

Posted on 18th July 2018 in Uncategorized

Image result for Dolce & Gabbana's Boombox Bag

Dolce and Gabbana have played their trump card in what feels like a designers’ race to come up with the kitschiest “theme bag” yet. This race seems to have been playing-out over the last few fashion seasons, with no end in sight. Thinking back on it, I can recall a few of the real standouts: the Fendi furry “Monster” bags, Moschino’s cartoonish “Fast Food” bag collection, and the never-ending evening bag offerings by Judith Leiber (the perfume bottles, telephones, and animals, to name a few). However, this time Dolce & Gabbana have done something with their theme bag that nobody else has to date; they’ve made it into an actual functioning boom box.

The bag (which is not yet available in stores), in keeping with its old-school vibe, will have a cord that enables you to connect your iPhone (as opposed to pairing it via Bluetooth) and play the music of your choosing. While there is no price listed for this bag as yet (we’re guessing it will be on the pricey side), the company has stated only that the Boom Box Bag will be in a “handful of stores” and on the Dolce & Gabbana website “very soon.”

Well, this is a surprise. While portable music devices have been a fixture in various shapes and forms since the 70s, never in our wildest dreams would we have envisioned the big boom box trend that was so popular in the 80s coming back for a second showing — yet that is exactly what appears to be happening. Sort of.

Over the past few years’ enormous trend for novelty accessories, bags have been made in the image of a lot of things: books, decks of playing cards, astrological symbols, leather jackets. Rarely do any of these bags also perform any of the functions of their aesthetic inspirations; after all, bags have a pretty specific functional purpose already, and their interior hollowness presents another significant barrier. Neither of those issues got in Dolce & Gabbana’s way, though, and soon you can buy a bag that’s also a boombox, should that be a thing that’s useful to you.
