Timeless Cameos

April 27, 2011

  • Cameos… works of miniature sculpted art have been cherished for ages. While their original purpose is somewhat lost in history, cameos owe their origins to ancient carving traditions. For at least 100 years from about 1840-1940, the cameo was the one piece of jewelry most women owned. While predominantly showcasing women’s profiles cameos also reveal the manners, customs, philosophies, historic events, and social occasions that have marked our past. While I was home this past weekend I engaged in one of my favorite past times… sneaking a peak into my mother’s jewelry box… I dug out a small little cameo which I had forgotten about tucked away deep in a corner which has a ship sculpted on it, this particular cameo most definitely marks a perfect example of one which encompasses an occasion of the past.

For-Ev-Er : Eternity Bands

April 26, 2011

Usually characterized by a band of stones that wrap all the way around a ring, symbolizing the eternity of ones never ending love and commitment... these gorgeous bands are so classic and elegant and in my eyes will forever be in style! Encrusted with anything from diamonds to rare gemstones these fabulous rings vary in such a way from size and shape to color cut and style! I find that the more vintage eternity bands possess more beauty and character, but are much more difficult to come across unless you are on the hunt or you are lucky enough to have one handed down! Let me share with you just a few of my favorites...

Easter Bunny Couture

April 22, 2011

While I have to admit there is something that just doesn't get old about receiving an Easter basket year after year, I have yet to dig in to a basket that included any of the below Easter Bunny Bling! Nestled amidst that wirey green grass always seems to be just bunches of mini cadbury robins eggs and countless packs of florescent colored peeps... This year while you follow that trail of jelly beans leading to that treat filled basket, why not do it with a little pastel Easter style!
