Some Jewelry Chat

May 12, 2010

It's been a while since talks of jewelry dominated my blog posts.
So here goes one massive bauble filled entry:

Over the weekend I adopted this little stunner of a ring from Malena:

The center stone is white topaz and the shank is lined with diamonds set in 9 carat gold.

It's an English ring made in Birmingham. Shame it's far too big for my finger.
Not to worry, I've done some DIY resizing job by wrapping the back bit of the ring with an elastic band. Epic fail. The ring now looks skanky when you look at it from my palm..but at least I can wear it!

As you can all tell, the virtue of patience is totally alien to me.

On to more exciting news, I won a stingray cuff from Janina Dizon Hoschka! She generously put these up for grabs on her blog for a mother's day contest and I am beyond elated that she chose me because I never win anything. Ever.

Also, my purple stingray cuff has officially died on me so the timing couldn't be more perfect.

Again, thank you!

Jenny is an amazing multi-award winning jewelry designer and I've got pictures to prove it.
Here are just some of my favorite art pieces:

Amazing, no?

I'm kinda glad I don't live in Manila. Surely I would be penniless if I was exposed to this kind of beauty on a daily basis.

Speaking of beauty, here's the striking designer herself:

Not only is she a walking talent with a beautiful face to match, she also has a wardrobe that's made of dreams.

Go on and feel the envy.

Amazing jewelry ... All of it. I can't pick a clear favorite. I do love that ring you bought, it is a pitty that its too big but your re-sizing seems to have done the trick for now :) Jenny really is an amazing jewelry designer, i fell in love with that first piece and the last cuff.

Hi Cho! Congratulations on winning the cuff, it's quite a looker! I also force the issue with giant rings inherited from my grandma, but in a much cruder way: with masking tape. :S Haha, great minds! Miss you, love!
