Incredible bling!

I saw some incredible bling in my jewelry store in El Paso today. A fabulous platinum and diamond bracelet from the 40's that has been in a safe deposit box. Take out your jewelry and wear it, sell it, or have it redesigned. There is too much money tied up in those jewels. Susan Eisen

Diamonds always fit!

Today a man told me that his wife tell's him before any special occasion just to buy jewelry because it always fits! No need to buy a certain size or color and worry if it looks right. Jewelry is always the perfect gift! You don't have to be an El Paso expert to know that!

Bling omitted from Oscars! Trents to watch

I anxiously watched the oscars the see the jewelry and it was practically none existent. Other years had pieces flowing from the star's ears, necks, and hands, but I didn't see much. Did you see all the red and pink gowns? For those pieces red coral and rubies would have done the trick. And did you notice the metallic fabrics on some of the stars? White metal is still king and if you don't have any, put it on your list!

Michelle Obama's jewelry

The inauguraton was an uneventful time for jewelry where I thought we would have alot to talk about. Michelle Obama had small earrings on, lots of glitz on her dress that made her really stand out. All the men had their flag pins on and wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a pin that the women wore? Hillary Clinton had some small, blue earrings on to match her coat that looked like sapphires. Everyone had coats on and what a perfect place for a stylish brooch but there were none to be seen. The cold had a lot to do with it! Let's hope that the parties tonight bring on the bling!

Bill Clinton's bracelet

I was watching the Democratic convention yesterday and saw Bill Clinton wearing some kind of a rope like bracelet on his right hand. Does anyone know what it is? I found that to be different for a past president, and unless it symbolizes something special, it would be interesting to know why he wears it. He also is wearing a yellow gold wedding band and a stainless steel watch on the same hand and a watch with stainless and gold would really coordinate well with his wedding ring. Just a thought...

Bring on the bling

I am eagerly watching the political conventions to see what jewelry everyone is wearing. So far, I have not seen too much to comment about. Jewelry can bring fashion, flair, professionalism and respect to the wearer. In "Crazy About Jewelry" I talk about changing your jewelry to fit your individual needs. I hope I see more coming on from Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain, and Hillary Clinton and from the guys as well. It will certainly make the conventions more interesting.
