Time to Bid Farewell

Sparkling Signs of Life

Yellow walking Maybe It is time to bid farewell and try to shake-away from the doldrums that are often caused by a winter season filled with months of early morning chills, frost, ice storms,  power-outages  and personal or family challenges.   Now is the time to enjoy the sunshine, clean out our closets and feed our soul by focusing on all the Sparkling Signs of Life … the Sparkling Signs of Spring!

Spring Equinox

Each year, in late March or April, the first signs of winter’s departure …

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!

Keynote Sparkle

I was  honored to kick-off the sparkle-marathon  with the Keynote for the jewelry show, LUXURY by JCK. During the first three days of Vegas Jewelry Week, the LUXURY SHOW is an invitation-only show for Luxury Retailers.  My keynote presentation on day-one was definitely Sparkling, because I was wearing an amazing Diamond necklace that is valued more than …

Perfect Sparkle, Not-so-Perfect Snack

AC Pretzel 1   When I’m in NYC, I  always stop at the Time Warner Center! Inside there is a giant Whole Foods Market, which is a great stop before visiting friends (I love their flowers and food-to-go bars). There are also great restaurants and the Bouchon Bakery & Café is perfect for lunch.  Ok, I know there is also  great shopping, but you already know from a previous blog post, that I love great food- even early in the day!  (BTW: My inspirations for NY eats is the blog: EatingMyNYC.com ) Notwithstanding all of the temptations inside Time Warner …

Sparkling in Central Park

AC Twirl 1 Winter is almost over and the sun is shining, so it seems the perfect time for Sparkling in Central Park! My New York friends were seriously declaring this week a  heat-wave (NOTE:  temperatures were in the 40’s and 50’s)!  So, if everyone was day-dreaming of Spring, I refused to put on my basic black coat, which is the NY standard winter fashion. Instead, winter white seemed right. What a surprise to see how right I was…when I saw how much snow was still in the park! As for my Sparkle, GUMUCHIAN “Cloud Nine Collection” was the perfect choice! THE BEST   FIRST EARRINGS  
 GUMUCHIAN CLOUD NINE EARRINGS 
18K Gold,  1.5 CARATS of DIAMONDS &  More than 14 CARATS of Yellow Sapphires!

Christmas Gold Rush

THIS ONE GOLD Jewelry is one of my 3 blog features for gift-givers that I posted last December; the main gist is: “Gold Jewelry is a lasting gift of love to be treasured, a lasting gift of beauty to be enjoyed and a gift of increasing value…”  This year, I am excited to share information about GOLD COINS, because the Christmas Gold Rush is on! I have been told (by a Wall Street commodities guy) that Gold Coins are the BEST way to buy Gold.  So, I scheduled a visit with my jewelry friends at WIDEBAND to see what they do with Gold Coins. I think it is best to keep our assets close!  BTW: I am wearing THREE COINS NEAR THE FOUNTAIN at the Rockefeller Center Ice Skating Rink …
