World Records certifies this GoldVish

World Records certifies this GoldVish phone as the most expensive in the world--1 million euros, or about $1.3 million. The odd-shaped device is made out of 18-carat white gold and features 1,800 diamonds totaling 120 carats (this goes waaay beyond "bling")!! A Russian businessman bought Le Million for his wife last September at a luxury goods fair in Cannes, France. Don't have a spare million for this made-by-request gadget? Geneva-based GoldVish has plenty of expensive phones in its lineup, including models with gold plating and diamond-studded

fashion accessories. Jane magazine

up any copy of InStyle, Marie Claire, Jane, and other popular fashion magazines and you will find the editors talking about the rage for jewelry this Spring.
It seems everyone is pushing colorless baubles like lucite, rock, or crystal jewelry for your fashion accessories. Jane magazine bluntly states that "clear jewelry is no longer for strippers".
I just blogged on this new gold and crystal pendant design.
Glamour magazine declares that the jewelry should be piled on and become "the focal point" of your outfit.
Fashion jewelry icons like David Yurman, Georg Jensen, and Tacori are all devoting some considerable effort to this end, with flashy ads devoted to showcasing many of these new designs.
So get out there and buy yourself some clear crystal jewelry...and don't worry about looking like a stripper says, Jane magazine!!.;-) ;-)

Ordinarily, I try to refrain from personal commentary, views and opinions when showcasing a piece of jewelry (certainly when it is not one of our own manufacture..;-).I simply show the piece and leave it to you faithful readers to make your own judgements.This time, I simply cannot help myself!What in the world was this jewelry designer thinking when he/she created this pearl necklace, called "Splendid Night" for a recent exhibit of pearl jewelry in Jinan City, China!!!This necklace is beyond ostentatious..... mean, it almost looks like a set of wings!!Perfect for a peacock, not a woman

taupe-beige and dreamy creamy colors in this design

"I wish they all could be California girls." Classic Beach Boys comes to mind when I think of my youth and the beach. Now you can share in the memories with this whimsical ode to all things beachy. Cloissone rusty-red starfish are partnered with ivory Czech glass pearls and different shells in the buff. Small gold-plate shell charms and Czech red glass shells dance along the linked chain. This 3-strand charmer is 7 1/2" long with a 1 1/2" extender and has a top-quality textured gold-plate lobster clasp. Just one left in stock.

love that this bracelet looks like you plucked it from a booth at a vintage jewelry show (well, plucked and paid for) or found it in a pawn shop in some remote town. The rope measures ½” in diameter and closes with top-quality antiqued gold-plate bead caps. The bronze, matte gold and turquoise glass beads in the rope are one of my favorite combos (gee, I have a lot of favs, don’t I?) and are the perfect complement to the large Russian amazonite and smoky quartz beads that dance as “charms.” Of course, we can’t overlook the Swarovski crystal smoke topaz beads that join the other dangling charms. The unique design of this bracelet means that you simply (but carefully) roll it over your hand and onto your wrist. Choose the size that is best for you. From the TRL Jewelry Trunk Show Collection. Last one of this style.

taupe-beige and dreamy creamy colors in this design are true classics – sophistication at its finest; at least in my mind. Wear it alone or do the unexpected and style it with a cool corded or a heavy metal link chain bracelet. The “rope” is about 3/8” in diameter and end with top-quality gold-plate decorated cone bead caps. Wirewrapped dangling charms include a large ¾” x ½” oval coin mother-of-pearl bead, a ½” square mother of pearl bead, a snow quartz round, a freshwater pearl and a glittery fire-polished Czech glass bead. The unique design of this bracelet means that you simply (but carefully) roll it over your hand and onto your wrist. Fits a medium

Spring has already started and although

Spring has already started and although the weather might not be that good and sunny everywhere it might be a good idea to start looking for some trends.Especially during the warm seasons of the year, jewelry around the neck and the wrist becomes visible. However, some trends never change. And so it is with the black and white contrast which, as I think, matches every season of the year. But when it’s starting to get warmer, warm colors might not be such a bad idea, just like coral or yellow as this blog recommends. Just like this colorful YuKoN bracelet for example. Or to keep it simple in like sports, but during the cold seasons of the year most of them are impossible to do. Or did you ever try to play football on a frozen field? ;-) Now, the company Sixense has developed a new gaming system called “TrueMotion 3D”. This new system is like the Nintendo Wii, only much more accurate. So maybe by next year’s winter you could stand in your warm living room, playing golf or baseball. :-) But only because it is virtual sports, doesn’t mean that you’re not moving.A good thing that the TeNo bracelet ShiKou is equipped with the safe rubber technology, which allows you to wear your TeNo jewelry during your favorite sports activity, indoor or outdoor, without fearing to lose it. Also, thanks to the inner steel cable, it cannot break or rip apart in any way.acApparently, stainless steel jewelry can attract attention more than other kinds of jewelry. For example as described here, the effect of stainless steel on women. First I thought that they mean that men wearing this kind of jewelry attract women, but when reading the article you notice that they mean it elsewise.With attraction, they mean that women begin to discover that stainless steel is a very good option for them instead of silver for example. So if a man buys them stainless steel jewelry for special occasions like christmas or their birthdays it might impress them. In my mind, this might be a good side effect, but the most important that the jewelry looks good on you. So maybe if the man wears good looking stainless steel jewelry himself, it impresses the other gender as well. ;-) And for both, men and women, you can find here a big variety of different jewelry.knd steel, the ShiKou collection. Be prepared when the sun comes out the next time

made and usually made out of

made and usually made out of embroidery floss or thread. There are various styles and patterns, but most are based on the same simple half-hitch knot. The making of friendship bracelet is a version of macrame.
The amount of thread used in bracelets can vary. The smallest pattern, a double chain knot, requires two strings. The candystripe can have as few as three strings and as many as forty, based on pattern and thickness. Because of their versatility, they are worn by both males and females of all ages. They are particularly popular with pre-teen and adolescent girls and with present-day hippies, deadheads or Rainbow Family participants. Thicker friendship bracelets are commonly worn by both male and female surfers.
The knot-craft and hand weaving used to create traditional patterns stems from Native American handcrafts, particularly from Central American tradition. According to indigenous tradition, the recipient of a friendship bracelet must wear it until the cords wear out and fall off naturally. The idea is that the friend paid for it with the hard work and love that made it, and the recipient repays the friend by honoring the work. Removing the bracelet before it naturally falls off is a sign that the friendship has gone sour. Another variation of this tradition is that the recipient of a friendship bracelet is entitled to a wish. After the bracelet wears out and falls off naturally, the wish will come true.
Pattern of a friendship bracelet names vary slightly from place to pla
