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

 

 

Sapphire and Diamond Earrings from Madagascar and Sri Lanka

I’ve been pretty busy creating stories for work and although I haven’t updated in a while, I will make it up to you with the updates that I will be doing incessantly this week.

Lately we’ve had a lot of request for Sapphire jewelry, and I think it might be due to the news of the Royal Wedding and the popularity of Princess Kate’s wedding ring. Sapphire and diamonds do scream out ” royalty”, I must admit. 🙂 I love Sapphire and Rubies. I’ve always said that- maybe even more so than diamonds. Don’t quote me on it; I don’t think my mother would approve. I just can’t help it that I like color and shine! Diamonds are gorgeous too. After all, they are the most expensive gems. Speaking of which, I do have a video story that I just made on arguably the most famous diamond in the world, but I’ll save that for a later post. 😉

For now, I’ll leave you with pictures of the 2 sets of Sapphire and diamond earrings that we just created. One pair of earrings are Sapphires from Madagascar. The other pair is a set from Sri Lanka. Can you guess which is which? And the cts.? Which one do you prefer?

Wedding Wear

I’ve been really sick so I couldn’t update the blog. Today I’m feeling a little better, and I wanted to tell you about the wedding I went to. The couple is just a beautiful couple and you could tell that they were madly in love. I knew the bride since I was a young girl, and I was just so glad to see that she had her fairy tale wedding and she will be having her happily ever after… Here are some pictures from the night. I wore a long glittered gown that I had worn for my Junior Prom, ( haven’t worn it since I was 16  so it’s considered vintage), and wore diamonds to match my glittery dress. 🙂

My Favorite Earrings

Just wanted to write up a quick post before I leave for work. I wanted to show you the new jewelry pieces my mom has coming up for Kaye Gems.

What do you think?

This is my favorite- the diamond ring and the bracelet. The bracelet is made up of gold and crystal stones. It is not expensive either.

Name Bling

I think it was Carrie Bradshaw who got everyone wearing their names on their necks. Yes, I followed this trend too. I followed this a little bit too much, that I wish I had left my name alone from the beginning.

You’ll see how  my name plate changed to 50 cent’s name plate. In case you don’t know who 50 cent is, he is the rapper who wears a lot of bling on his neck, and made that song ” In the Club…bottle full of bub”.

Carrie Bradshaw pulled off her jewelry well. Let’s compare.

The one of me wearing the name plate jewelry in my yellow dress was on my 22nd birthday. My mom then fixed it up, and put more bling on it. The one where I’m wearing my jewelry in my jean dress was last month. I’m 23 now. Do you think 23 year olds should still be wearing name plates? Do you prefer a plain name plate in solid gold print or a gold scripted name plates or a diamond studded gold plate?  I preferred my first name plate. Just KAYE.  You’ll see it.
