Rubbing Shoulders in Vegas…

Palladium Alliance International (PAI) hosted a Meet and Greet event, Saturday, June 2, 2012 during the Couture Show, one of the top exhibitions of jewelry designing in the industry. Held in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 31-June 4, 2012, attendance was by invitation only and offered key jewelry retailers and designers from around the country the chance to meet Pamela Anderson, one of the celebrities featured in PAI’s 2011-2012 advertising campaign, “I’m So Over Heavy Metal.”  Marlene Langer, Manager of Craig’s Fine Jewelry, was among the lucky individuals to rub shoulders with the Canadian actress/producer/activist. The Couture Show, held at the Wynn Resort & Casino, attracts 300 Couture retailers annually who seek the latest premier jewelry designs from around the world.

Palladium is a rare and lustrous silvery-white metal that, together with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium, form the group of elements known as the platinum group of metals. It is lightweight, durable, naturally white, pure, and sensitive to the skin. It is becoming the luxury metal of choice for a growing number of fashion-forward jewelry designers and savvy consumers. Formed in March 2006, Palladium Alliance International (PAI) is the world’s first organization dedicated to establishing palladium as a luxury metal. To learn more, visit

Diamonds and the Color, Pink… Two of a Girl’s Favorite Things!

I’ll admit it, I love pink… hot pink, pale pink, peachy pink…. any variety will do.  And summer is the perfect time to showcase this color… a sundress, a bathing suit,  a handbag, any piece of clothing will do.  I even love it on my toes and lips!!

What’s my favorite accessory with my pink wardrobe:  Diamonds!!! Honestly, diamonds are my favorite accessory with all my favorites:  black, green, striped or polka-dotted!

How about this gorgeous William Levine Fine Jewels pendant:

Perfect, no?

And, do you think these William Levine earrings are too much?

I didn’t think so either.

Off to face the day… wearing my rosy-colored sunglasses too!


Turquoise: The Stone of the Season

Fundraisers, red carpet events, local boutiques on Main Street, the playground, … wherever we go this season, we can’t stop noticing one accessory:  TURQUOISE JEWELRY.  From fun, whimsical earrings to the statement making necklace, everyone is wearing it… probably even while reading, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Last night, at the Award Dinner of the  Council of Fashion Designers of America, we saw it again… turquoise was on the designers… and the stars.  And if the designers are wearing it, you know it’s in style.

Designer Tracy Reese wore these turquoise chandelier earrings.


Designer Nicole Miller also wore turquoise statement earrings.

Want to create your own look with turquoise?  How about these gorgeous Mazza earring from Craig’s Fine Jewelry?

We’ve also got necklaces… who wouldn’t love the turquoise fob by Syna?

Red Carpet Looks: MTV Movie Awards

Although the MTV Movie Awards don’t have nearly the star power as the Oscars, they do draw a young, fun crowd of A-list celebrities.  This year, one fashion trend stood out on the Red Carpet… Peplums!  We think they’re here to stay… at least, until Hollywood grows tired and something new appears from designers! Here are some peplum stand-outs from the evening (all photos from People Magazine):   Charlize Theron looked gorgeous in this red Lanvin-designed dress ~ classic, simple and beautiful.  MTV Movie Awards, or any other Red Carpet event, Charlize is sure to be a hit in this dress. Harry Potter fans:  Hermoine is all grown-up!  Emma Watson is looking young and stylish is the graphic print dress with coordinating peplum.  The strappy-shoes and chunky cuff bracelets compliment the dress perfectly and give her a sexy, but fun look ~ just what young fans want to see. Emma Stone coordinates nude and black pefectly in this peplum dress.  We love the shoes too.  Maybe a little too sedate for the MTV Movie Awards but stunning, none the less. All eyes might have been on her husband, Channing Tatum, and his Magic Mike co-stars, but Jenna Dewan creates quite a stir in the peplum mini dress.  The metallic accessories give it that edgy look that we’ve come to expect at the MTV Movie Awards.

Finally, what do you think of peplums… will you be wearing one?  Let us know your thoughts.
