A stud that makes a statement

We are halfway into our favourite holiday gift list this year and the beautiful pieces just keep on coming.  I am excited to share with you this 6th gift idea as I have been personally wanting these studs for quite some time.   I am a sucker for a stud that makes a statement and for me, these lilac amethyst studs fit that bill perfectly.

Measuring just over 9mm in diameter, these lilac amethyst studs make a major impact.  The lilac amethysts at center are a beautiful shade of pinkish-lavender and are complemented so perfectly with the rose gold backdrop.  Set in six, delicate claws each lilac amethyst is faceted like a diamond to shine and sparkle from every angle.  Their rose gold settings include lovely, filigree detail and secure with post and butterflies for safety.  And if you take a look back to our very first holiday gift idea this year, you will see that they are the perfect match for that knock out of a ring!

I think this 6th holiday gift idea will go down as my favourite but with six more to go, you just never know!

Triple diamond perfection

Our 5th choice on our favourite holiday gift list this year are our beautiful, triple row diamond bands.  These diamond bands are the ultimate in sparkle and brilliance and would make any recipient the happiest girl around.

We have these beauties crafted in two stunning ways; all white gold or a two-tone version that incorporates a rose gold center.  Each is set with round brilliant cut diamonds of incredible quality that are micro pave set into three rows across the top of the finger.  Each row of diamonds catches the light and reflects it back in an extremely brilliant way.  These bands are not for the subtle but for the girl who wants to sparkle even in the dimmest lit room!

It is triple diamond perfection for our 5th gift idea this year and we couldn’t be more excited about them.  Stay tuned as we have seven more exciting gift ideas ahead!

Dazzling diamond drops

These dazzling diamond drops were a must on this year’s favourite holiday gift list and they are also high on top of my own wish list too!  Anyway you look at them, they are simply dazzling and beautiful in every way.

These earrings are crafted in this year’s most popular metal, rose gold.  Rose gold has made a major impact on every genre of jewellery and we are loving every minute of it.  It has such a romantic and feminine feel and tends to look good on just about any skin type.

The rose gold is also the perfect complement for the two beautifully faceted white topaz stones that make up the first two drops of the earrings.  Both oval in shape and faceted like a diamond, they are both held delicately in the design with rose gold claws.  They also support a very brilliant, pear-shaped diamond cluster at the bottom of the earring.  These diamonds are round brilliant cut in shape and are micro pave set with virtually no metal to be seen.

All these design details, from the rose gold, to the white topaz stones and to the sparkly diamonds, come together to create one amazing pair of amazing drop earrings, and that is why they are our fourth pick on our gift list this year!  Stay tuned for eight more brilliant suggestions.

Our magnificent morganite

This magnificent morganite ring was, hands down, the easiest pick for our favourite holiday gift list this year.  It is one of our most popular coloured stone designs to date and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Morganite continues to be a strong trend among fine jewellery of all types.  You will find it used in engagement rings, right hand rings, earring and pendants showing off its subtle and feminine glow.  The colour of morganite is very complimentary to a wide variety of skin tones and blends in quite nicely with other pieces of jewellery you may pair it with.

We have set this beautiful morganite in a back drop of rose gold to really accentuate the stones colour.  Surrounding the morganite is a halo of micro pave set, round brilliant cut diamonds that also extend down the shoulders of the ring.  These diamonds are colourless in quality and sparkle in the setting so beautifully.  They are the perfect complement to the perfect stone.

Also shown with this beautiful ring are two of our favourite diamond stackable wedding bands.  They too have a place on our favourite holiday gift list this year and we will tell you more about them soon!

Perfectly Polished

diamond micro pave engagement ringAfter receiving an overwhelming response to this engagement ring on Instagram, I decided we must take a little time to adore its beauty and explore all of the details that make it so great!

Crafted in 19k white gold and set with an abundance of round brilliant cut diamonds, this engagement ring sparkles and catches the light in such a stunning way.  It all starts with the brilliant round cut diamond at center.  Weighing just over 1.00ct in size, this diamond is held in a simple four-claw setting, with custom created ‘talon’ claws to show off its beauty.

This diamond is accented by micro pave set, round brilliant cut diamonds down the shoulders of the ring that add just the right amount of glimmer and flare.  If you are looking for a slim band but still want to incorporate diamonds, micro pave settings are just the thing for you.  The diamonds are set in individual and petite, four-claw settings that minimize width but maximize impact.

When these features all come together, it creates a feminine, classic and timeless look.  A design that will stand the test of time and sparkle in any light, this perfectly polished ring will certainly delight!

A Match Made in Diamond Wedding Band Heaven

emerald-cut-halo-stacker-setIt is no secret that I have a mild obsession of emerald cut diamonds so when we put this amazing wedding set together, I just had to share it on my blog.  It is the perfect combination of our diamond stackable wedding bands with one knock out of a ring.

One of the amazing details of this ring is one that you may not notice at first glance.  If you look closely at the center, emerald cut diamond, you will see that it is actually made up of a group of smaller diamonds.  There is a striking combination of baguette cut diamonds and round brilliant cut diamonds that come together, invisibly set, to create the emerald cut shape.  It is a setting style that is technically, quite difficult to create but the end result is simply beautiful.  Using smaller diamonds to create one big look is also a way to keep this beautiful engagement ring light on the pocket-book!

And let’s not forget about the two brilliant, complimenting wedding bands.  The eclectic trend is still going strong and this is a great example of how to pull it off.  We have paired the emerald cut engagement ring with our favourite pod shaped, diamond stackable band and the always timeless, claw set eternity band.  These three rings, while not necessarily the text-book match, come together to create a match made in heaven.
