Natalie Ring, Duchess of Hearts Ring, Cecilia Ring

 A wedding ring doesn’t just have to be a simple diamond anymore. As our customer favorites show, engagement rings and matching bands have more flair and style than ever before.  Add a gemstone, add two gemstones, and create that perfect engagement ring for you! These customers didn’t let their engagement rings stand-alone but also added the perfect complimentary matching band.

Personalizing the Cecilia Ring with peridot and surrounded by diamonds, this customer created a classic but modern engagement ring. Feminine and delicate, the Cecilia Ring won’t be a wallflower. Add our Matching Band in peridot (or any gemstone you choose!) to compliment the ring.

Compliment your demure style with a simple, vintage ring. A classic combination rose gold and amethyst, this Duchess of Hearts Ring also boasts 28 iridescent diamonds and was made perfect for this customer. Matched with the Duchess of Hearts Band in rose gold, this customer now radiates nobility.

Demure and classic not your style? Go bold with the Natalie Ring. This customer chose a yellow gold metal and a citrine center gemstone for quite the impact. No one will miss their engagement thanks to the two rows of diamonds and white sapphires surrounding the gem and running down the band. Add the Matching Band for the ultimate sparkle combination.

Whether you design your engagement ring yourself, with a partner or are pleasantly surprised, these three creations are sure to make their future owners very happy! Slide your ring on your left hand ring finger and admire the subtle brilliance of a gemstone engagement ring.

How to Wear: Alexandrite

Garden Parties with Gemvara
This flowing, blush-colored dress lightens up the forest green and deep red tones of Alexandrite.  The bright green shoes make a statement while bringing out the sparkle in the Gemvara pieces.  This outfit is perfect for summer events since the fabric in the dress will promote airflow and wedges are much easier to walk in than pumps, especially if the event is outside/on grass.  You will want the Gemvara pieces to sparkle on their own, so keep makeup natural and a small clutch in a neutral color.
The Liana Ring uses a playful garden-like design which is perfect for Alexandrite’s earth tones and the outfit’s theme in general.  The Cadena d’Amour Necklace compliments the romantic silhouette and fabric of the dress.  Be sure to wear your hair off your shoulders to showcase the sweetheart neckline, keep you cool, and of course, show off the beautiful Watercolor Romance Drops with Rock Crystal.  These earrings are delicate enough to wear everyday but are sure to make the wearer sparkle.

Celebrate 4th of July in style with patriotic pieces from Gemvara and Americana garb.  Jean shorts are a summertime staple and look effortless with the cuffs rolled.  To make legs appear thinner and longer, shorts should hit mid-thigh where the leg slims.  An American flag shirt is the perfect statement for the 4th of July, but be sure to keep the shape simple to avoid overwhelming the entire look.  Flats and sandals are the easiest to maneuver through barbeques and backyard games of croquet. Avoid stiletto heels where you will sink into the grass.  A small cross body bag will hold the essentials without being cumbersome.  Red nails are always classic and help add a special patriotic touch for this holiday.  however, if you’re feeling really adventurous, try a red/white/blue nail design.

Now for your Accessories:

The Full Heart Pendant is a simple piece that is elegantly understated but perfect for this color-coordinated holiday. With a 16 or 18 inch chain it dangles at the perfect length to elongate the neck and show off the bright top.

The simple Tri Gem Culvert Ring is a remarkably constructed piece is perfect for layering rings and is simple enough to wear year-round. It is also perfect for signifying the three birthstones for September, April, and July babies.

Packing a little more sparkly punch, the Sheltering Sky Ring hosts a large center gemstone with two smaller accent gems. Playing up the bold statement shirt this wide-banded ring is spectacular alone but matches nicely when paired with the Tri Gem Culvert above.

Whatever your plans, Gemvara wishes you a safe, happy Independence Day full of barbecues, parades, and surrounded with friends and family.

Have a Happy 4th of July!

Cannes Film Festival Marilyn Monroe Chopard Set

The Cannes Film Festival 2012 kicked off yesterday with the Opening Ceremony red carpet including walking up the hallowed steps of the Grand Palais in Cannes, France.  This annual film festival is celebrating its 65th year with a tribute to Marilyn Monroe 50 years after her death. The festival’s sponsor, Chopard, will launch an exhibition of 25 unpublished photos of Marilyn Monroe taken by photographer Milton Greene during the festival, which will tour worldwide afterwards.

Monroe famously sung about diamonds as a girl’s best friend, and keeping suit, Chopard designed a set with her in mind for an identity-concealed star to reveal at the Opening Ceremony.  Last night, supermodel Eva Herzigova sported the stunning pieces accompanied by a pale pink Dolce & Gabbana gown.  The necklace featured cascading heart-shaped diamonds, briolettes, and beads worked into an intricate lace set in 18K white gold, in total there were over 200 carats in diamonds.  Of course no necklace is complete without matching earrings.  The set was completed after 980 hours of work and designed by Chopard’s Co-President, Caroline Scheufele.  Before the big unveiling, the only detail Scheufele divulged was that the set would be worn by “a glamorous woman as she glides up the famous red-carpeted staircase.”
