Diamond

Happy clients = happy designer!

Blessed as we are to design for others, it is a special feeling to design for people you know and love. Being asked by friends or family to design their special engagement ring or wedding ring is the highest honor and compliment. And I have to say this year is special in that way since many friends are planning their proposal or planning their weddings. Fun times!

Mid august we started a design project with a family friend who wanted to celebrate her life and give herself a great 50 year old present, a gold Diamond ring! The best present in our opinion ;) While she was inspired by our own HE Bridal set we went for a square design, big Diamonds and a beautiful message, to live here and now. Im pleased to say that she was more then happy with the result and so were we!

The left and middle  images is the Bespoke ring with shiny white gold, 1.25ct round brilliant Diamonds in prong setting. The engraved message "här & nu" means "here & now", a beautiful reminder to it's owner to live in the moment. To the right is our HE Bridal Diamond Ring, with matt white gold and 0.56ct princess cut Diamonds in a channel setting.

So designing jewellery doesn't mean you need to go crazy, even the simplest designs needs to be carefully planned with feeling and style. Go on our Bespoke page if you also want to plan your special piece.

We also received an email from a previous Bespoke client wanting to show us that she still loves her necklace and bracelet and wear the often. That is the best compliment you can receive in the middle of a hard working day. Thank you Helena!

The little black gems

So last post we talked about how the colored gems are finally back in trend. Well black is also a color and definitely a classy one! No matter time or trends, black is the color that will stay elegant.

Coco Chanel gave us the little black dress, the little black jacket. Well we also need the little black gem to give our wardrobe an edginess and contrast. There are some gems to choose between but the blackest of them all is the Onyx. With it's opaque body it really gives a strong effect and it's silky surface is lovely for a faceted cut or just as a flat. 

Here's an image of our previous Bespoke piece, white gold cufflinks with Onyx and Diamonds. A great example where the Onyx complements the shiny Diamonds with a bold look.

The black Tourmalines are also popular since they're widely available and inexpensive (compared to most gems). Of course you have the black Diamonds. Who doesn't love Diamonds, right? Giving the high lustre and of course, the luxurious feeling. There are so many lovely options for the little black gem cocktail ring and we love them all! Almost equally ;)

Inspiration Is All Around!

What an amazing start to the year. Fashion week after fashion week, London, Stockholm, NYC, Paris and then we've had the Grammys, Oscars, Gold Globe and the Swedish Grammies to just mention a few. We've barely covered haft of them but of course, we have been influenced! 

Jewellery isn't just a craftmanship and treasure, it is fashion! It's very important still to distinguish fashion jewellery from fine jewellery BUT if we just look at the concept of fashion, jewellery is very much part of it. We complement or even build our entire outfits on our jewels and that is always clearly shown on the red carpet. 

Fashion weeks and awards of course differ a lot from each other. Fashion weeks are all about the creative, the art of wearing and styling while the awards highly glamorous and thrilling! Oscars was definitely a favourite!

 
 

Jessica Biel's choker from Tiffany & Co. was an absolute masterpiece! From Tiffany's Blue Book Collection, the "Whispers of the Rain Forest" piece has over 200 baguette Diamonds and over 350 individually shaped petals. 18K gold, platinum and Diamonds is a master combo!
