DIAMONDS, A Gift Made With Love

My appreciation of fine jewelry began with one of the most influential women in my life – my grandmother!  I know that I have talked about her to you guys before.  She was a woman that appreciated beauty, grace and elegance, and loved jewels, haute couture, travelling, and writing short stories or poetry.  I remember being 12 years old and asking her to let me borrow her collection of fine jewelry!

While in the kingdom of fine jewelry you can find platinum, gold, gemstones and pearls, which is the most brilliant of them all?  Diamonds…  And even though a dainty diamond is a lovely way to finish off an elegant look, I find that pieces that combine diamonds with gold will add an equal or bolder finish to your look.

These gorgeous fine pieces from Helzberg Diamonds are the perfect example of diamonds combined with gold.  While I love each metal on their own, combining them gives each a whole new life!  I do understand that some people prefer to wear each separately, but I love mixing metals for a fresh new look with a completely new dimension!

There are no words to describe this elegant White Diamond Orbit Pendant.  This alluring masterpiece is sure to turn heads everywhere.  It has four rounds made up of 14K rose gold, shimmering white diamonds and champagne diamonds.  Its grace and beauty will for sure elevate your look!

Styling Tip: wear the pendant with solid colored clothing, so that the clothing does not overpower your fine jewelry.  Try to choose a top or a dress with an open neckline, and stay away from all patterned clothing when wearing the orbit pendant.

These panther rings from EFFY Jewelry are my newest obsession.  One ring is rose gold, the other yellow gold, and the third one white gold.  The first and third ring have tiny diamonds on the side.  Because each is a different color gold, combining all three adds to the visual interest.

Styling Tip: wear them together but on their own.  Meaning… do not wear any other rings on the same hand… so they can be the center of attention.

Helzberg Diamonds has been helping people celebrate all of life’s happiest moments for 100 years!  The most amazing part is that they allow you the opportunity to design your own diamond ring, and personalize it with a special birthstone, a favorite gem or whatever you love.  You can browse by metal type and add your own personal touch so that the piece of jewelry will be an expression of who you are.  They have 210 stores in 36 states, so be sure to check them out while you do your holiday shopping!  My in-store experience was truly lovely, I got to see everything in a private room, with a specialist that explained each piece of fine jewelry to me.

Let me know if you have any questions about my jewelry or how you can wear it!  Which combination is your favorite?  I’d love to hear about how you wear your metals!  Send me a message or share it below!

Lots of love, Flora

Look of the Day: “The Boyfriend Jeans”

There is a trend of jeans that is divine – slouchy, comfy and relaxed – the Boyfriend jeans.  The epitome of effortless chic dressing is not only a closet essential… it is also a versatile piece.  Dress them up with heels and pumps, or down with flats – either option works every time.  They should fit loosely, and look as if a girl has borrowed the jeans from her boyfriend.  I love wearing them for a change!  There really is nothing better than a comfortable pair of everyday jeans to wear in this city.  This outfit is no exception and I especially love the rose gold pumps that easily take this outfit from day to night.  What do you guys think of this trend?



Hay una tendencia de jeans que es divina: holgada, cómoda y relajada: los jeans tipo Boyfriend.  Para un look chic sin esfuerzo, estos jeans no son solo una prenda esencial … sino también versátil.  Usarlos con tacos, sandalias o zapatos sport; cualquier opción funciona muy bien todas las veces.  Deben calzar holgadamente, y verse como si una mujer le tomara prestados los jeans a su novio.  Me encanta tenerlos para variar un poco!  Realmente no hay nada mejor que un par de jeans cómodos para usar en esta ciudad.  Este atuendo no es una excepción y me encantan como quedan con zapatos metálicos que llevan el conjunto de día a la noche.  ¿Qué piensan ustedes de esta tendencia?
