Mother's Day Gifting

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

I got it from my Momma!

Whether it’s the person who brought you into this world, the person that raised you, the person you’ve raised children with, or the person you look up to most - we know she would do anything for you. And she deserves the world. It’s impossible to repay her for everything she’s done, but we think jewelry is a pretty nice start! 

We love jewelry for the meaning it can hold, and the story it tells. We’ve put together a short list of pieces that speak to us on a deep level that mom is sure to cherish for a lifetime. Plus, who doesn’t love a little CANDY to elevate their everyday look. ;)

Neck Candy

Our Diamond Initial Necklace can stand for so many things. Be it her own initial, the initial of your little bundle of joy - and no, it is not self-centered to get mom your initial - you are her pride and joy after all!

Auti Necklace brings the drama, yet feels so wearable at the same time. The Malachite inlay is unlike anything we’ve seen. Malachite is often referred to as the "botox of crystals", as it is believed to personify the deep healing green of nature. Drawing out impurities, it is celebrated for its life-giving flowing lines and energy. The perfect gift that stands for healing and positivity. 

Ear Candy

You simply cannot go wrong with a great pair of hoops. We love Jenner Earrings, Josie Earrings, and Mikayla Earrings as the perfect balance of dainty and bold. We love the way these pieces hug your ear, making them so comfortable to wear. Now that’s what we love to hear!

Wrist Candy

Our Tennis Bracelet always makes a statement. It’s that piece she’s always wanted and is sure to become a future heirloom. Bring elegance into your everyday look, or keep her for special occasions - you are guaranteed to receive compliments either way. 

Finger Candy

Just a few of our favorite stackable rings include Lorelei Band, Daw Band, Elaine Band, and Nati Band. Who doesn’t love a collection that can grow and evolve? We love pairing bright white diamonds with bold metal elements in a right hand stacking story. (Plus, you’ll know just what to add for next Mother’s Day!) 

For the strong spirit - our Onyx collection. Our beloved Onyx Ring is now available in Small Onyx Ring or Large Onyx Ring, depending on how bold of a look you desire. For us, this piece exemplifies power, and we know mom has always had super-human strength. 

We love to celebrate our STRONG, AMAZING women each and every day, and are honored to create pieces that can live up to that incredible spirit you know as MOM! Shop all of our favorite Mother's Day gifts here

How to Style our Bold Collection

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

We cannot get enough of these wonderfully BOLD pieces, and apparently we're not alone! Warm yellow gold and uniquely set, one of a kind stones make these pieces covetable and different from anything we've seen before. But what pieces can pair with them as to compliment the look, and not take away from it? We've got fresh ideas we think you'll love! Bold but never Bulky!

First up is our Lilinoe Ring, paired with Kiyomi Band on top, and Black Diamond McKenna Band on bottom. We love the contrasting colors, and the contour around the pear center stone adds an unexpected twist. 

Beautiful Valencia Ring is paired with Rio Band, Mali Band, and Clara Band. For a metal forward look, contrasted and framed by bright, white Diamonds keeping unity amongst all the points.

Harika Ring is truly a showstopper - she doesn't need much! Paired with Emerald Lucy Band for a subtle pop of color. We love the way Emeralds can add such personality to any stack. Not a lot, just a little!

Bold and modern Harlow Ring, paired with Half Dicha Band and Maddison Band. Baguette Diamonds add to its very modern feel, and Maddison Band plays up the negative space. 

Zuelke Ring and Maizi Band - a match made in heaven. The two have a similar feel - matte finish with a domed shape. They give us the same feeling that an amazing suit would.

Mata Ring paired with Lorelei Band offers a fun metal-on-metal look. The organic shape of Lorelei band adds a soft touch to the structure of Mata Ring, for those after just a touch of shine. 

How are you styling your BOLD pieces? We would love to know! Tag us on Instagram, and you may just see your pairings on our page.

Fine Jewelry 101

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

Fine jewelry consists of a word fine for a reason. This post is to ensure an understanding of what’s truly required to prolong your piece's lifetime outside of the obvious. 

Not every piece of jewelry is made equal. With attention to details from a design standpoint, we want to ensure that the design is equally appropriate for clients' lifestyles. Not to mention that rings and bands take the biggest amount of abuse, as we use our hands the most!

Even the most durable stone settings are only durable to a degree. Therefore, we take a look at several factors, considering each one noteworthy, when deciding upon how practical your ring will be for daily wear and your level of activity. Although don't dwell entirely on durability - many people love the look of a dainty piece, so being sensible is the key. Find a balance, but consider some important factors that will best suit YOU!

Care must be taken with any piece of fine diamond jewelry. Only a few pieces (if any) will withstand regular abuse when knocked and scraped. Jewelry withstanding heavy wear will show abuse and neglect through scuffs, scrapes and gouges by a naked eye or under a loupe. The prongs will become loose due to excessive force and forgetting to practice simple mindfulness. This is because gold is malleable, and should be treated with this in mind.

Our Fera family of bands is a favorite for a reason - whether large, super, or our perfectly dainty original, she can soften any look with her incredible marquise diamonds. Part of what gives these bands their floating-like appearance and diamond forward feel is their shared prong design. They seem to almost defy gravity, perfectly balancing all in a row. This is because each one of the Diamonds is held in place by two shared prongs, contrary to most traditional four prong, pave, bezel or channel setting.

Other examples of current shared prong favorites include our Meryl Band, Misa Band, Ruet Band, and any other piece with a description of such. 

Gorgeous, right? Although they are not for everyone, as these shared prong beauties do require some extra care and love. If even one prong becomes loose or if the band is bent out of shape, because of its domino-like effect, you are immediately at higher risk of losing one of your very precious diamonds! But not to worry - all you need to do is follow these simple guidelines along with being mindful.

  1. Treat her with love! We recommend taking off all of your fine jewelry before bedtime, before exercising, or before doing any strenuous activity that requires your lovely hands. It doesn’t necessarily always require a strong force to harm jewelry, sometimes the right force at just the right angle can be just as harmful. Be mindful of this when reaching into your purse, wrapping the dog leash around your hand, or making one trip carrying all of your reusable grocery bags in at once. We’ve done this before and learned the HARD way.
  2. Six month check ups - aka “jewelry oil changes.” This is crucial to the longevity of your pieces! We recommend bringing in your jewels to either us or a local jeweler twice a year for a quick tune up. We will examine the piece to ensure all prongs are secure and tight, and that the piece is in tip-top condition. Not to mention a nice deep clean - this goes a long way in preserving your pieces.
  3. Pay attention and listen! Your jewels may be trying to tell you something. If a stone were to become loose, you will be able to tell by tapping on the stone with your fingernail. You will be able to feel it move slightly. Additionally, if you shake the piece lightly next to your ear, you will be able to hear a faint rattling sound. It is time to take your piece in right away if you were to see or hear these very important warning signs!
  4. All rings should be a perfect circle. Because gold is naturally soft, it can be prone to warping over time. If force is applied, this can also alter the shape of your ring or band. Because each of the stones is held together by perfect pressure being applied, when the shape of the band is altered, this can cause the stone setting to expand and open up more, releasing the stones. It’s simple physics, really! 
  5. The right size is crucial. If the band is too big, it is more prone to damages. This is because it can spin or catch more easily on things and bend out of shape, which in return quickly loosens the settings. Think of your finger as the most perfect canvas. In order for it to do its job, the ring needs to be correctly sized. If you are unsure of your size, we recommend confirming with us or a local jewelry store. 

We hope to enlighten all of our clients with these simple facts. Taking into account these wear techniques is crucial when selecting the right piece for your lifestyle! In addition, we recommend insuring your pieces always through your homeowners or renters insurance. Especially if you are a rule breaker by nature!

Taking a Bold Approach

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

Kasia has had her head full of new inspirations and ideas...and we are so excited to share them with you.

Jewelry is often referred to as wearable art. These rather statement ring designs are steering in a more masculine direction with unique form that showcase a well-defined blend of futuristic features and simplicity. Exuding a casual cool feel, with a bold take on gender neutrality, these newest pieces were born out of a response to this “different” year..

Displaying an unapologetic boldness and a fighter attitude, each piece uses a one-of-a-kind stone that cannot be replicated. Find unexpected details in the positioning of each stone and appreciate a true beauty in the slight misalignment.

We love these pieces as alternative bridal engagement rings, or to be worn as statement pieces. (Because your right hand deserves it, too.)

When a piece of jewelry can make you feel as though you have some sort of superpower: amazing strength and a feeling of being untouchable, you’ve found something truly special. And we hope these pieces bring you just that.

Let’s bring on 2021 with nothing but those superpowers! Shop these pieces and more here.
