When Autumn leaves start to fall….I refuse to fall into the sweet-melancholy lyrics of Sinatra; instead, I focus on the colorful life surrounding me.  Burnt orange, copper brown, metallic golds and the shades of champagne…. all  inspire me to reach for Natural Champagne Diamonds. On this day, my “First Reach” was a diamond pendant with a  Champagne Diamond Cluster encircled with two swirling and entwined halos of white diamonds.  pendant  

And just like that, it was time for Picnic Planning…

Vegas Sparkle and Substance

Money   If I say “Sparkle” and “Vegas” in the same sentence, no one is surprised….but if  I use the word “substance”, well let’s just say that it’s rare to hear (or see in print) that word  anywhere near a mention of the City of Lights or Sin City.  Nevertheless, my ten days at the largest shopping event for the jewelry industry…. were all about Vegas Sparkle AND Substance!
