Colorful Stones

For my birthday, I went out with some of my closest friends from DC. We had a great time- and I spent the night dancing away. I wore 2 necklaces that my mom had sent me for my birthday – all made up of semiprecious stones- amethyst, citrine, peri-dot, blue topaz and pink topaz. It was on a 28 k yello gold chain. I wore a white short Cinderella- puffy dress, and I thought the dress complemented my jewelry well. I am really loving semi precious stones, and the necklaces are definitely 2 of my favorites from Kaye Gems.

Do you have any favorite jewelry? Do you find it difficult to match your jewelry to your outfits? Please share! I’d love to see and hear what you wear on special occasions.

xoxo,
Kaye

Birthday Bling

I’ve finally turned the big 25, and so far there is no quarter life crisis. Life’s been good, and there have been many changes. I moved to a new house and have been ecstatic with my stay there. My walk home from work and to work are a little longer, but I like the exercise. ( I’ll post pics of my new house soon!)

On my birthday, my coworkers surprised me with a birthday cake, and I had gotten so many well wishes from everyone- family and friends. Nice to feel loved. My phone ran out of batteries because of the many alerts, but it survived after a little charging. I didn’t do much on my actual birthday, but one of my friends bought me a drink at a bar. I left after one drink, and instead opted to go home, read a book and eat a slice of cake by myself way past bedtime. I thought that was living on the wild side- eating carbs right before bed! I’m feeling old!

 

I wore the gold pearl necklace my mom had sent by Kaye Gems. She designed it herself. I also wore earrings and a ring from Kaye Gems. I love the uniqueness of all the jewelry. The ring has a leaf shape curve to it, and my earrings remind me of earrings from traditional old times. What do you think? I have to thank my friend/colleague Donald ( who is also in the pictures ) for the photos. He took pictures of the jewelry for me on my birthday. lol

 

 

Topaz

I must be boring you with all the blue jewelry. The one I’m wearing in this post is blue topaz. It’s slightly different from the Sapphire jewelry – lighter in color and looks a little bit like crystal when in the light. However, it is a stone- a gem and not a crystal. This whole set is a tear dropped / oval shape. Hope you like it.

My next post is about a diamond and the mystery/ curse behind it. Stay tuned for that one! 😉

Pink Topaz Ring

Also from our 2011 collection is a new Pink Topaz ring. This is for the woman that likes big, bold, ” bling” things. It really is a beauty, and it shines when the light touches it. I took a picture of everything on my blog with a small Kodak camera that I acquired from STAPLES more than 2 years ago ( for my 22nd birthday). I’m still amazed that the pictures look good when the only light I use is natural sunlight. All I can say is that the jewelry speaks for itself when you see the shine of the stone in the photos. I’m not thinking about getting a new camera anytime soon. 🙂

Sapphire and Diamonds

I was born in September so my birth stone is Sapphire, and since September 22nd 1986, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Sapphire jewelry. Rubies and Sapphires are my favorite (even more so than diamonds, can you believe it? hah) My mom and I recently designed Sapphire jewelry for a client, and I was more than ecstatic to have a voice and see my designs come to life. Our special client wanted a Sapphire necklace so here are some of the necklaces and rings that we designed. Hope you like them. This is the first of the 2011 collection to come.

An Outing with Sapphire

Posted in diamonds, Earrings, Events, fashion, Forever 21, Gossip Girl, Hair, jewelry, kaye gems, Ring by kayemlin on March 16, 2011

One of my best guy friends from college is in town, and although I’m not partying a lot, he is! My friend is also gay which means we have much more fun together! It’s been all laughs and giggles since he’s been in town. On my night out in DC- we went to a gay club/ bar called Cobalt at Dupont Circle. It was pretty fun although I was exhausted. I’m not too much into raving and free style music, and that was all Cobalt seemed to play. On that night, I wore a one shoulder dress with studs, and set of blue sapphire and diamond ring and earrings. The ring is very much like the Princess Diana/ Kate Middleton ring. Earrings were made to match it ( slightly). The setting is a bit different for the ring and the earrings. The ring and earrings are made with real diamonds and real sapphire by Kaye Gems. On my left hand, I am wearing a diamond bracelet. On my right, I am wearing a bracelet with different stones on it. That bracelet is actually my favorite out of everything I own.

Leopard is in ! Blue Topaz Jewelry too !

I went out this past weekend with my friends from NY. They threw me a surprise bday party! Trust me… I was really surprised. I had such a great time, and I realized that friends are so valuable. Even among my hectic schedule with work and trying to see my family as often as I can, it’s great to know that I have an amazing bunch of girl friends.

I wore my black dress with puffy sleeves from H & M, Liz Claiborne shoes and a leopard bag from Aldo. As for the jewelry, they are from Kaye Gems. My mother had designed it. It is a matching set- of blue topaz. My friend Zonia was also matching me ( it was not predetermined). She wore her leopard top from H & M and black shorts.

Cherry Tube Dress for Cherry Blossom

Every year, there is a big cherry blossom festival in Washington DC. This  year in 2010, the festival lasted from March 27th to April 10th. My friends came to visit me during that time, and we went to watch the festival as well as tour around DC during the day, and later on went out on the nights. On one particular night during the Cherry Blossom Festival, I had worn a cherry tube top dress. I was wearing one of my favorite set of jewelry- ruby and diamond earrings, pendant and ring- all from Kaye Gems .

UPDATE! Smithsonian Ruby Ring from Burma

Posted in diamonds, Ring, Rubies by kayemlin on July 26, 2010

Hey Guys,

I’m so sorry I haven’t been updating as frequently as I would have liked to. I’ve been beyond busy, but I promise that I’ll update my blog as much as I can. I was working and going to museums this week- and I found one juicy story! In one of the Smithsonian museums in DC, there is a Burmese 20.3 kt ruby- given by one of the CEOs of Subway to the Smithsonian.( I’m trying to get my hands on it ASAP to get a news story out of it!)

It is a ruby and diamond ring, and it is very sentimental in value. The CEO’s wife had passed away and so he had donated the ring to the Smithsonian – saying that it is something to admire and America should have this beauty of a gem.
