October is a month of giving back and paying it forward.

As you might know, my Mom passed away from breast cancer.  I miss her dearly and am saddened that this disease is the second leading cause of death among women so for every single purchase of JANINA jewellery this month, a portion of the sale will be donated to the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Incorporated.

October is also National Children’s Month and UNICEF Philippines is holding it’s annual Auction for Action as to which I am donating a pair of Transformer earrings.
The auction goes live on Ebay this on October 21-27, 2013 at

These dangling earrings consists of a brilliant cut blue topaz with green tsavorites and a pear shaped amethyst top in yellow silver.  The middle part are bezel set amethysts with white sapphires in the double happiness symbol. Bottom danglers are made with icy blue amazonite drops in silver. These earrings can be worn five ways.

Any donations would also be welcome. Let us help in any way we can.

Paris in Manila

Last weekend, we were invited to DR’s new flat.

We’ve been scheduling this for months and I’m so glad we were able to finally coordinate our scheds and make the time.

His place is GORGEOUS!

I love the fact that the apartment feels old worldy and cozy (it’s only 4 months old.) It is the May cover of ELLE Decor and it is well deserved!

Really brought me back to Paris.

Don’t get me started on his walk in closet.

His artworks are TO DIE FOR!

Great taste, great friends.

His choice in furniture is also superb. (That is Ito Kish’ award winning chair)

I believe we’ve found our love pad.

Thank you for inspiring me with your beautiful space Dennis!

Funny ads

I came across these diamond ads from de Beers and thought they were so funny.

Safe to assume that all women agree. ;-)

Social media

I am sorry if I have been remiss in updating this blog.  With a facebook page, twitter, Instagram (both ID’s are Janina_Dizon) , and my website, there’s only so much a girl can do!

I update my facebook page and IG almost daily.  See me there! :-)

Holy Week Schedule

In observance of Holy Week, we will close on Monday, March 25 and re open on April 1, 2013.

Have a blessed and meaningful week ahead.

Style icon

The Duchess of Windsor is one of my greatest style icons.

Of course, her love of jewellery is not lost on me.

Her style was impeccable.

And it still resonates today.

Who are your style icons?

Anne at the Oscars

Did you like how Anne Hathaway wore her necklace to the Oscars?

I loved the idea but maybe in a different design.

What do you think?

Everyone should know it’s not just the clothing but also the jewelry that can make or break a look. – Vogue

See the difference.

Meet the TATE

Spring/Summer 2013 handbag collection

the TATE

I would like to introduce to you my latest clutch collection, the TATE.

Following the successful launch of my first color-blocked clutch called the TATJANA and named after my precocious son, the TATE is a versatile clutch bag that can easily transcend from day to night.

Made of the finest stingray sourced from the same purveyor of exotic skins who also supplies the houses of Fendi and Louis Vuitton and complemented with soft lambskin leather, it measures 11 x 7.5 x 2 inches (which perfectly fits an iPad!) with an outer and inner pocket slot.

It also comes with an adjustable lambskin leather shoulder strap. What separates the TATE from the rest is the finishing of the stingray leather, namely:

1.    Florentine finish (which is a type of sand blasting that make the stingray skin smooth and gleaming),

2.    Gold and silver wash (subdued flecks of metal washed over the stingray making it sparkle),

3.    Natural (showcasing the true beauty of the stingray)

see the subtle flecks of gold sparkle?

These treatments are brand new to the industry.

There are twelve yummy colors to choose from: topaz, citrine, olivine, tourmaline, jasper, coral, onyx, lapis, amethyst, quartz and garnet – all with my signature 3 pointer diamond in sterling silver in the center.

The clutch will be available at JANINA for Jul Dizon at the Peninsula Hotel, Jul B. Dizon Jewellery at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel and CURA V at the Powerplant Mall starting February 8, 2013.

Here is a video we made for the TATE:
