October’s Birthstone:Solid 18k Gold Fake Van Cleef Arpels Alhambra Earrings Opal – The Mysterious Multicolored Gem Monique Pean Opal Rings Photo Courtesy of from Wall Street Journal My grandmother always told me that opals are bad luck. She loved jewelry and fashion, and in fact worked for decades at Milgrim and Hattie Carnegie specialty stores on New York’s 57th Street. But like many of her generation, she believed the myth that wearing opal brings bad luck — unless, as others say, it happens to be your birthstone. This myth is thought to have originated in 1829, when Sir Walter Scott published a novel called “Anne of Geierstein,” or “The Maiden of the Mist.” In his book Scott used an opal to symbolize the changing fortunes of his heroin, and critics of the novel said the opal had an “evil influence” because of her terrible ordeals. This bit of folklore briefly reduced the value of opal at the time, but when Australia’s mines began to produce opals commercially in the 1890s, their popularity grew to new heights, continuing to this day. Color, Play-of-Color, and Pattern Black Opal Photo Courtesy of GIA Scientists do not Cheap Van Cleef 4-Leaf Clover Studs completely understand the genesis of the opal, but gemologists will tell you it is the only stone in nature with minute spheres of crystal, which produce opal’s magnificent and varied colors. An opal might display a single color, two or three colors, or all the colors of the rainbow. Black opals, which are only found in a 900-square-mile patch of the vast continent of Australia, are the rarest. If you are lucky – yes lucky – enough to own an Australian black opal, you have something unique in the world. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), play-of-color is the most dominant aspect of an opal’s appearance. No matter the combination of colors, play-of-color must be vivid to command a high rating. Opal connoisseurs prize bright play-of-color over faint play-of-color. Opal, Fancy Yellow Diamond, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond Necklace by Oscar Heyman Available at Dorfman JewelersMimi So ZoZo Opal and Diamond Earrings Secondary in importance is the play-of-color’s range. If an opal’s play-of-color ranges across the entire spectrum, it is very rare and valuable. In some opals, the play-of-color consists of just one main color and two or more secondary colors. Red is considered the best prominent color, orange the next most desirable, followed by green. Pattern is the Knockoff Van Cleef Butterfly Earrings UK arrangement of an opal’s play-of-color. The GIA likens these patterns to the shapes one sees in the clouds, including Pinfire — small, closely set patches of color; Harlequin — broad, angular, closely set patches of color; Flame —  sweeping reddish bands or streaks that shoot across the stone; and Peacock — mainly blue and green. Clarity and Cut An opal’s clarity can range all the way from completely transparent to opaque, depending on type. In black opal, for example, experts prefer an opaque background, while in crystal opal they prize transparency. Each background is best for displaying play-of-color in its individual opal type. In planning the best cut for an opal, the stone’s color, pattern, and clarity must be taken into consideration. To achieve this goal, the cutter may opt for traditional shapes or cut the opals into large, irregular shapes that keep as much play-of-color as possible.

Revealing The Secret Of Layering With These Two Light-Weighted

With almost every trend coming to an exhaustion, it is layering that has kept its promise. Women have been Replica Van Cleef & Arpels Rings layering their clothes and jewels from time immemorial. Don’t tell us you’ve never tried this trend before. No? Well, let  simple layered chains come to your rescue. The designs have been crafted keeping in mind those who don’t prefer their style loud and heavy.   Check out how our thin silver chains decorated with colored stones are forming these simple yet stunning neck-pieces. With this modified style, you are now not required to wear two-three jewels to form the layers.  Jewelry for me is among the top 5 of my favourite accessories, apart from bags, shoes, belts and watches! I think it stems from memories of watching my mom wearing her pearl bangles at get-togethers, to one of my sister’s obsession for artificial and junk jewelry during her college days and another one’s taste in royal jewelry. I developed my love for jewelry during college and if there is one kind of jewelry for me that is timeless, it’s silver. It can never go out of style, plus, I love the way it gives a rustic yet elegant feel and you don’t always have to pair it with Indian wear only. There are so many ways you can team up Silver jewelry. One of my favourite ways is to opt for a black crop top and a checked flowy skirt with dangling silver filigree earrings from Indiavaale. Another one of my favourites ways to style using silver jewelry, a crisp white chicken kurta with straight black pants and Indiavaale Silver Filigree Bangles. Here are a few of my takes on how to style and pair different pieces of jewelry with outfits: Mix and Match It’s not necessary to Fake Van Cleef Alhambra Ring match the colours of your outfit with the jewelry all the time, for e.g.; if you’re wearing a bright Blue Kurti, pair it with silver jhumkis and don’t forget those kohl filled eyes for a maximum effect. If you’re carrying a sporty look, opt for a mix of black armbands with light silver charm bracelets. Body Structure Many people think that any earring or necklace will suit all body types, but that’s not true. Figure out which part of your face and neck is the focus point and aim at accentuating that. Make sure you balance your earrings or neckpieces based on the shape of your face. For e.g.; if your face has a strong jaw line, consider wearing silver hoops. People with more weight around the neck must team up fall/or dangling earrings to make their face appear slimmer. Skin tone Just like choosing the right shade of lipstick or foundation, one must choose the right colour/tone in jewelry too. It’s also good to keep in mind the colour of your hair. For e.g.; if your hair is a light brown or has light highlights, opt for deep maroons and turquoise gem jewelry. However, if you have dark brown or black hair with no highlights, opt for dull gold and silver.  Add value Remember, you don’t have to accessorize every outfit with jewelry to make yourself stand out. For e.g.; if you’re heading out for a team dinner, wear a smart jacket over a white shirt and blue denims and wear just midi rings on your fingers. If you’re wearing a short dress, opt for bold solid colour rings or a silver cocktail ring. Lastly, Trust your instinct and develop your own style statement.  Just because it is in fashion doesn't mean you have to follow it.  Special Edition of Garnet Jewelry – The January Birthstone Garnet is the birthstone for January and signifies eternal friendship and trust for a friend.
