Impress the Jade

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Everyday Tips, Jewels & Bijoux

While in the East the Jade stone enjoys great consideration thanks to the profound meanings they attribute to it and thanks to the ancient cultural tradition, in the West it is rarer and little known. In Chinese culture, jade symbolises nobility, perfection, constancy and immortality and for years has been considered the most spiritual above […]

Sweet Pastel Colours

This year, Spring seems to have no intention of showing herself. The days are grey, cloudy and still cold. It makes us desire its warmth and sunny light. We still have the windows closed so we can’t hear the harmony of the birds’ songs. The flowers bloom in colours hidden by our sad attitude of […]

Here it is the “must have”, the “one and only”, the “evergreen”, the “little black dress” of jewelry! The Solitaire Diamond!  We all agree that it never gets old. Whenever you’re chatting with a friend who owns one of these legendary things, you can’t help but take a quick look over and over.  It won’t […]

Today I would like to show you an incredible piece of art. The essential and contraposition are rules that run this contemporary ring. Shapes and colours are masterfully combined: red and blue, two primary colours, are contrapposed together with the shapes within diagonal lines.

For many and different reasons this year (and especially the oher, 2020), has been the year of changes. I have made some myself. One big change, many small, some important and some insignificant. Some inside my way of thinking and some the way I feel…  You already know how much I love brooches, and you […]

Do you like long necklaces? Very, very long necklace?  I do, very much, and this time I could have exaggerated. Someone may say I did, but I don’t think so. At the beginning of the last century this kind of ornament was very common, especially the one made with pearls.  Do you remember “The Great […]

To All The Women

In the last few days I swipe through Instagram and, like most of us, I have been overwhelmed by the news from Afghanistan. We are all frightened by the idea of being treated as those women are in that country. Anxiety, fear and sadness are in my thoughts and in my heart. It was difficult […]

Grandma’s Promised Ring

This time I would like to show you a piece of my family history. This stone was set on a ring my granny used to wear. I was fascinated by its dimensions, colour, and clearness. She always said it would be mine someday. Time has passed and I have forgotten this ring in a drawer. […]
