Unbeknownst to many clients, sapphires come in myriad colors. In addition to classic blue, we can also custom create these bands in different hues, like pink and green! Sapphires and rubies are great if you like a pave, or inlaid style, because they are durable enough to be set in smaller sizes unlike many other colored stones. Emeralds and tsavorites are also quite hard, and consequently they are perfect for designs such as bezel set bands.
Gemstones like aquamarine and morganite are a bit on the softer side, and therefore work better in larger band styles. For example, a chunkier style in a u-shape or shared prong setting is a beautiful way to showcase almost any gemstone. While they still require careful wear, the larger cuts are less susceptible to chipping and breakage. We recommend these in a halfway, 5-stone, or style to ensure less interaction with destructive surfaces.
Another great reason to opt for a colored gemstone band is that they are less expensive than diamonds! Most of the colored gemstone bands we carry run about $1000-$3000, whereas diamond band options start closer to $1500 and can come close to $30,000 in larger styles. Non-treated colored diamonds can be even more expensive than their colorless counterparts, so if you are budgeting for bling, the colored gemstone band might be perfect for you!
Cartier launched its newest haute joaillerie collection earlier this Summer at the Reform Club in London. The collection is filled with astonishing pieces of jewelry. Pieces may transform from necklaces to hairpins or brooches and most are like a little wink to Cartier’s rich high-end jewelry past. Come and discover the Resonances jewelry collection by Cartier.
The Resonances collection seems to honor Cartier’s earlier high-end jewelry collection. A kind of tribute to the best of the best! Later this year, Cartier will bring out more pieces to its Resonances collection, launching it this time in New York.The gemstones usually form the element from which any design starts, according to Cartier, and the gemstones are extremely beautiful in this collection. They really run the show! Obviously, this kind of jewelry is there to be admired by many, aspired by a lot, but available only to small group of clients throughout the world.
The frame clutches, which were square little boxes on delicate chains, generally rendered in exotic leathers, were the most notable new addition of the season by far. In addition to those, Hermès also included new colors of the saddle bag it introduced for pre-fall. With plenty of black and more studs than we’ve come to expect from Hermès, as well as fall standards like tan and burgundy, the collection followed along with the dark tone that’s been running through fashion all season. Check out the runway bags below.
I think of a ton of different kinds of accessories, but I don’t think of evening bags. Clutches, maybe, but not the compact, structured little bags reserved for the most formal of events. And I had never really considered it before, but doesn’t that seem odd? Hermès clients are surely the type of people, on average, who have the occasional very fancy party to attend, and its very much a brand that outfits its customers for the full range of life experiences. As of fall, that range now includes formal weddings and charity galas.

Enough talking about the Miss Dior Promenade Pouch, it’s time to show the real-life pictures. Until now, we have only showcased the model pictures, though we know that everything-Miss-Dior gotta be pretty, but we just missed ‘the something’, the final touch you know. It gives a different feeling when we observe a real image.
Alrighty then, first we must warn you. The first Miss Dior Pouch Bag is not ‘just’ a Miss Dior Pouch Bag. It’s the newest Miss Dior Pearlised Lotus Mini Pouch with Chains, which we’ve already featured some time ago (you see, that’s why you need to follow us on Facebook). It’s made in gorgeous pink and it’s like the baby version of the Miss Dior Shoulder Bag. It comes with a pearlised lambskin, a pale golden clasp that’s not only elegant, but also sophisticated deluxe.
The Miss Dior Promenade Pouch doesn’t differ too far away from the Miss Dior Bag, I mean the medium size not the large. The design is decidedly feminine and it embodies all of Dior’s modern style – classic and luxurious, the lambskin enhanced from the inside and outside by cannage stitching.
Featuring an anthracite, silver or golden clasp, depending on the color you choose. With its long and detachable chain, you can wear it cross body, on the shoulder or simply carry it by hand. Its ultra softness will guide you through the night. And the interior is as pretty as the exterior, it’s composed of one gusset compartment, a zipped pocket and two flat pockets with 12 card slots. All your evening essentials can be structured and wear it chain strap to make sure you will not lose anything.
The Miss Dior Promenade Pouch is a bit larger than a wallet, which gives the flexibility to easy-carry and more storage than the Wallet on Chain Bags. Truly a beautiful piece of luxury.
