Alright. The holidays are here and you just discovered that you can’t buy your mom a new house like you promised her when you were 12? That’s okay! Today we are looking at the next best thing-jewelry! Everyone loves high-fashion jewelry, no one more so than our beloved always-on-trend moms. Here at PJD we continue our mission to help you find some of the most fashionable and economically priced jewelry pieces for all your loved ones.
Let’s take a look at some of our Mom Finds for this Holiday Season including affordable and somewhat lavish finds to suit all mom types.
Worn by women for hundreds of years, it isn’t until recently (since World War ll) that men have joined in on the tradition of wearing wedding bands to mark their union. And with an endless selection of designers and styles, modern couples can easily express their shared love for one another with matching wedding bands while still showing off their individual style.
Matching wedding bands is a great way to publically honor the marriage for a lifetime to come, but what does matching really mean? it could mean a number of things, but for our purposes we are considering matching wedding bands, bands that are complementary in precious metal (yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, platinum, etc.), similar stone use (diamonds, colored diamonds), same style (pave, prong, channel), and/or same finish (polished, matte, hammered). What’s more, many contemporary designers craft bridal rings for both men and women, so couples have an easier time finding matching bands from their favorite designer.
To make your shopping experience easier, below we select matching women’s and men’s wedding bands from some of our favorite designers in traditional, contemporary, and alternative styles.
Just a few weeks after Halloween and all of us here at PJD are absolutely ecstatic over the holiday season. And while we know we still have Thanksgiving to look forward to, we are more excited about Christmas! First up on our shopping list, our other significant others, our BFF’s! We’ll have plenty of shopping guides for your non-familial favorite but today we are focusing on timepieces.
A jewelry box must have, a stylish and dependable timepiece is one of the most important items a young woman could have in their collection. Modern designs are extremely stylish accompaniments to any young woman that can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
So let’s take a look at some of our favorites and unexpected favorites for this holiday season and some reasons why they should be on your list this year.
You’ve seen them on the hands of such notable people as Victoria Beckham, Princess Charlene of Monaco, and most recently on current chart-topper Cardi B, but pear shaped engagement rings have been an understated beauty for hundreds of years. With some of the hottest celebrities and musicians sporting the teardrop cut, it is no wonder that this year the pear cut diamond has become one of the most popular engagement ring cuts for brides-to-be.
Here we take a look at some of the pros and cons of buying a pear cut engagement ring and a few of our favorite designer engagement ring styles for brides-to-be to consider.
With the holidays fast approaching, now is the perfect time to take a moment and do some research into what gifts you think your “ride or die” bestie will most appreciate. Here at PJD, we are strong believers that there is no gift better than the gift of fine fashion jewelry.
Not only is jewelry absolutely enthralling, it’s also a great way to show your BFF how much you cherish them and the indispensable moments you’ve shared. And to help you find a piece that we know every member of your #squad will love, here are three ideas from the experts at PJD to you! Enjoy!
With this year coming to a close and engagement season coming up, it’s time to once again revisit all our favorite bridal things. Not to be overlooked, the fashion jewelry a bride wears on her big day matters just as much as the wedding dress itself. And while there are multiple ways of tackling bridal fashion jewelry, some brides look to family traditions when shopping for their bridal jewelry. One we see every year in the PJD office is the “something borrowed, something blue” Old English Rhyme. Once thought to bring luck and a promise of fertility, now it has become a wonderful tradition for brides to observe if they want.
While there are many clever and interesting ways for brides to wear their four ritual items, we thought it would be interesting to look at possible fashion jewelry to meet one of the special criteria. For brides still looking for their “something blue,” we’ve discovered an array of gorgeous blue-hued fashion jewelry pieces that fit the stylish bride-to-be perfectly.
Every year marks new trends in bridal jewelry, and what was popular only five years ago may look hopelessly passé now. Now that we’re well into 2017, we can see clear patterns from designers, tastemakers, and consumers about what kind of engagement rings have characterized this year.
We’re used to a certain set of materials in the repertoire of the designers’ toolkit of design, such as gold, colourless diamonds, and perfectly round pearls. But while those precious materials rightly deserve to be the standard for jewellery creation, sometimes taking the path less taken is better — and choosing different, alternative materials invites a different kind of beauty.
