The jewellery at the Oscars.

I just finished watching the Oscars and I am happy to see such astounding jewellery.

As I’ve always said, jewellery always finishes the outift.

Here are my personal bests.

Lupita Nyong’o is a breath of fresh air!  She is impeccably styled.  Her gown is very dreamy while her earrings are very edgy.  I love how she mixed it up.

I wonder if she will singlehandedly bring the headband back?

One of my personal faves, Olivia Wilde is stunning. I love how simple she looks knowing that her baby bump is her biggest accessory!  I love the pop 0f white coral/agate(?) on her ears! (we have something similar to this by the way, drop by!)

Another proof that the baby bump is the best accessory? Here is Kerry Washington and her eternity rings.

A more sophisticated version of Lupita’s earrings on Sandra Bullock.  These are MAJOR diamonds!

I love how Jennifer Lawrence wore her necklace.  Although I was wondering if it was taped because I saw her fall but the necklace didn’t budge?  No matter, she does it all with grace.

I wouldn’t have thought that Naomi Watt’s neckpiece would match her sequined dress but lo and behold it did.  She was a great standout in her white dress.

Black and white. The necklace is all that Charlize Theron needed.

And for major wattage, here are Angelina Jolie’s sparklers

Apparently, her diamond earrings are a total of 42 carats!

Yowza.

Remember her green emeralds?

To this day, I still dream of those earrings.

Old european cut diamonds..

I have always loved old antique cut diamonds.  My husband, who knows my fondness for them gave me one for my engagement ring.

The sparkle, the quieter brilliance harks back to olden days where women were women and men were.. you catch the drift.

I have a pair that will just take your breath away.

when worn

G colored-Internally Flawless colorless diamonds. More coming soon.

High from the success of UNICEF, here is another ring that I am donating for International Care Ministries.

The gala event, which is on is 8th year, will be held at the Hong Kong Convention Centre this October 17, 2012.

I will be donating this modern lizard ring consisting of onyx and gray diamonds in silver.

This lucky lizard ring retails at US$ 1,150.00

Happy bidding!

Bespoke

From this..

..to this.

If you’re not wearing it anymore, bring it over.

Let’s make you fall in love again.

The hits

Jaime King’s a real snake charmer. This Bulgari necklace is amazing!

My favorite: January Jones in a torquoise and diamond necklace. I loved how she didn’t wear earrings so the necklace becomes the focus of attention.

Gwyneth Paltrow knows her jewellery.  She knows when to pile it on or keep it simple.  She is always smashing.

Jessica Stam and her bracelets.  It looks like one jumbled expensive mess and I love it!

This is perfection. Kate Bosworth is simply divine, the lips, the skin, the diamond earrings.

The near hit:

Solange Knowles wears a great geometric cuff. Looks like pyrite stones or beaten gold?  I think this bangle would have been a standout if she didn’t pile on the rings as well.

The misses:

She is downtown cool but I wish Mary Kate’s earrings were more polished.  This feels a bit too casual no?

OTT Karolina Kurkova.  I feel that this sequined dress with the sequined beret merits a colorful gemstone. Not diamonds.  Anyway, who would have noticed the jewellery if you’re wearing all those sequins?

Fashion tip: If you like the beret, you can get one exactly like it at Carolina’s in a multitude of colors for only P500 (US$ 11).

Isn’t love grand?

K and C came to me with the thought of making new wedding bands to reaffirm their vows.  They wanted something special for their 11th anniversary. After asking them questions, I decided to design an all around eternity ring of diamonds  for her that break after 11 pcs (to celebrate their 11th anniversary) and insert a square cut green emerald. (green is their favorite color) For him, I designed a ring that has 11 round diamonds on one side and 11 square cut green emeralds to match.  All in platinum.

This is the outcome.

How they wear it.

Celebrate love!

Bespoke Necklace

One of my favorite clients, Allen Tan came by last year and wanted to prepare a gift for his wife for Christmas and wedding anniversary.  He had a loose south sea pearl, some corals, blue sapphires and rubies that he wanted to have made into a necklace.  Normally, this kind of mixture is hard to combine but inspiration struck and this is what came out of it.

This is one of the many times I wished I took a before pic before making the piece.

Up close.  As they say, God is in the details.

Needless to say, I fell in love with this necklace.  Allen, you haven’t told me how your wife liked your surprise?  Do tell!

I truly truly LOVE this month’s V magazine featuring Kate Winslet’s take on the fabulous Liz Taylor.


Here she wears Harry Winston’s marquise diamonds.I believe it’s from the Wreath collection.It’s a beautiful classic timeless design and Kate Winslet is breathtaking. (I like her hair darker don’t you?)

Here is my take on the said earrings.

Multi coloured natural fancy shaped diamonds in hues of pinks, yellows, cognacs in 18k white gold. 5.52 carats.

And this, this is how Candy wears it.

Available now.
