Centurion Jewelry Show

IMG_6708 SIGN Centurion 2018 Just when I think I can not take any more  cold NYC winds, it is time for a trip to sunny Scottsdale, AZ …to attend the Centurion Jewelry Show at The Phoenician. The Centurion Jewelry Show is an Invitation-Only Event for High-End Jewelers and again I was honored to be invited! Here are some of my favorite designer Sparkle at Centurion…which may soon be available at your local fine jeweler.    

FREIDA ROTHMAN

‘Tis the Season for JOY & LOVE

‘Tis the Season for SHARING & GIVING

 

ABOUT GIFTING…

DWA-125 Gifts given at Christmas (or during The Festival of Lights), should be worthy of this magical holiday season! This means your gift should keep your loving celebrations remembered and enjoyed for years and years. This is NOT the time for fast food, fast fashion or money wasted on gifts with no meaning or value. It’s the time to add some Christmas Sparkle to our Life (and others’) with gifts of lasting value and real meaning, magic and mystery.      

MEANING, MAGIC & MYSTERY…

Blogging in the Rain

mandarin oriental-74 Ben Rain or Shine, I am always excited to attend a jewelry preview (i.e. a sneak peak for industry insiders).  So, with little notice (actually less than an hour ..so, NO Notice, LOL)   I hopped over to a dedicated suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Not alone; with me is my industry friend, Benjamin Guttery (a self-proclaimed jewelry-nerd), who is an Insta-Blogger …full-time (lucky guy)!  You need to check out his jewelry photography at “Third Coast Gems“. As to the Sparkle at the Mandarin Oriental, the attending designers’ jewelry will be available (shortly) in fines stores for your holiday shopping; but,  I  have some Sparkle to share with you NOW!    So, BLOGGIN IN THE RAIN it is!  Get ready for some great SPARKLE with my damp hat-hair, LOL!

Here Comes The Sun

SunRays_lc

For the first time in 99 years, the moon cast a 70-mile wide shadow (i.e. a total solar eclipse) on Monday, August 21st…across the US.   From west to east, hotels were booked and parties ensued along the path of “totality”.  Everywhere else, people took to parks, parking lots and rooftops to witness the partial eclipse.  If you were at Lincoln Center in NYC, you could witness a 71% eclipse …maybe while humming the iconic tune of Cat Stevens:  Moon Shadow.  I returned to Lincoln Center soon after the crowds were gone.

So, HERE COMES THE SUN …and the STARZ! CR1_5891 STARS
