Aren’t we all Irish on St. Patrick’s Day? Even if you really are not….we all like to follow a tradition of wearing green clothes that day. And what fun it is! A green dress and a pair of green shoes. Or a green blouse and a green scarf. The possibilities of dressing in green are endless. But what about accessories? Remember, you need to wear something shiny and sparkly that day to attract a leprechaun, that little Irish man who, if caught, will tell you where he buried his big pot of gold.
February can be bitterly cold, but getting that perfect piece of jewelry can warm the hearts of those you love. There are lots of exciting things going on this month like the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II on 2/6, Valentine’s Day on 2/14 and a great deal of birthdays that deserve very special attention.
When it comes to fashion and jewelry, what do Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton and Carrie Underwood have in common? All of these celebrities were seen wearing a simple necklace — a circle, and its meaning encompasses the meaning of life. The necklace is called a Circle of Life, a combination of simplicity, elegance, and meaning.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday and we all know that Moms love jewelry. There are so many options in so many price ranges, making jewelry an easy, fun, personal and memorable Mother’s Day gift. So, what to get Mom….
Why a ruby?
Tradition has it that the ruby has the power to bring piece, to promote a long and happy life, to banish evil and to reconcile disputes. That’s a very powerful incentive to want the stone in direct contact with the skin.
Thus the ruby has become the mark of of each Roberto coin jewel – and a secret gift of good wishes to every woman who wears one of a Roberto Coin’s exclusive creations.
Speaking about classics – hoop earrings make a truly glamorous classic fashion statement. And celebrities are not shy about spotlighting their hoops with every step they make along the red carpet.
At the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards last night in Los Angeles, actresses including Angelina Jolie, Christina Applegate and Jane Krakowski all wore hoops ranging from dramatic 22-Karat yellow gold hoops with ruby accents and heavy diamond drop-style hoops to more modest diamond studded styles.
No matter where the fashion world takes us, hoops are here to stay. Whether simple gold hoops or inside-out hoops with diamonds all the way around, hoop earrings are versatile enough to be worn with any almost any outfit for any occasion.
My personal favorites are white gold, sparkling diamond hoops from Roberto Coin.
