Last night, A Diamond is Forever (De Beers’ U.S. marketing team) hosted a special screening of the cinema-specific holiday commercial for the Everlon Diamond Knot Collection, followed by a complimentary viewing of the latest A Christmas Carol, complete with free...
When I was a kid, I loved it when our class’ annual field trip was to Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Back then, life didn’t get much better than an afternoon out of the classroom surrounded by dinosaur bones....
Entries in the AGTA Spectrum Awards were especially diverse this year, with numerous examples of Windex-blue Paraiba tourmalines (one of my all-time favorite stones), baroque pearls, sapphires in every hue (of course) and even color-change garnets. We’ve named the Spectrum...
If you're looking for an early dose of holiday cheer, there's no other place like New York, where twinkling lights and tinsel start going up the day after the pumpkins are put away. For city dwellers and visitors out and...
Rumors have been swirling for the past few weeks that Penelope Cruz and boyfriend Javier Bardem are engaged. The notoriously private couple has yet to confirm anything, but one jewelry company is already offering a replica of what is supposedly...
Working on the interactive display story this month gave me a fun taste of what's to come in jewelry retailing, and it’s something I'm very much looking forward to. I love perusing jewelry in stores--who isn't attracted to bright, shiny...
Ivanka Trump, the real estate scion, sometime model and owner of Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, tied the knot last night with New York Observer owner Jared Kushner, and while I don't envy her three-month whirlwind engagement--I can't imagine all the...
I came across this great article on IDEX Online on Thursday by my colleague Edahn Golan in Israel attesting to an increase in rough-diamond demand ahead of De Beers’ upcoming sight. The sight, scheduled for Nov. 2-6, is the ninth...
For me, Friday mornings are usually pretty cheery. It's the end of the week, only one more day of work to go and the weekend is right there, just looming on the horizon. Last Friday was especially so despite the...
Deadlines, a brief trip to Boston and events have been keeping me away from this blog of late, but I’m not complaining. Better to be busy these days then to find yourself with nothing to do. In any case, here...
Last year, when I was running around looking at wedding dresses, I started to get sticker shock pretty early on. So when I heard about the runway debut of a 500K gown, I was more than a little surprised, especially...
Each month, I compile National Jeweler's "Star Sightings" page, a selection of images highlighting the jewelry celebrities are wearing on the red carpets and out and about. It's a fun, easy-to-digest page, but it also has a serious impetus: providing...
I have yet to check out the new film Coco Before Chanel, but when I do, I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on the jewelry. The iconic fashion designer helped to launch Verdura founder Fulco Verdura's career, hiring him...
A little while back, I received an e-mail about Cassy’s Sassy Jewelry, a company run by a young woman who had established her business at the age of 12. Since then, Arizona-based designer and owner Cassy Saba has been featured...
