Luxury: Still Alive & Well

Posted in diamonds, Gifts, jewelry, rose diamonds tagged , , at 3:10 pm by rosediamonds

Some days, it feels like every news channel is harping on the lagging economy and the housing crisis.  The skyrocketing price of gold is not helping matters.  I recognize that it is important to be serious, and I sincerely sympathize with those who have been unfairly affected by the sagging economy.  Sometimes, a bit of “fluff” makes us all feel better.

Enter The House of Borgezie.   I became aware of this company from a facebook friend who posted a picture of the most luxurious shoe I’ve ever seen: The Eternal Borgezie Diamond Stiletto.  Girl’s best friend: The Eternal Diamond stiletto is made using 2,200 brilliant cut diamonds, totalling 30 carats and solid gold. Price $150,000 and yes there is a waiting list.  If you visit the link, make sure you check out the creation page for some “shop pics” of how they make these very excellent shoes.

To me, luxury isn’t necessarily blinged out shoes, but enjoying the “pretty things” in life.

    My fiance and I had searched out jewelery stores and were looking for an engagement ring that was unique. We finally found one, purchased it and started having problems with the jewelery store (the store had ruined my ring 3 times before I demanded a brand new one). I should have read this book before we bought my ring. The book is written in an outline style, a very easy read. Pictures of actual diamonds and flawed diamonds are pictured in full color, so you know exactly what to look for and what to look out for. Photos of diamond inclusions are described, I always knew that a VS2 diamond had ‘inclusions’ but ‘what’ exactly IS an inclusion? Newman has large close-up photos of the inclusions and describes them, and how the inclusions are graded. Metal selection and comparison is also included as well as short ‘chapter quizzes’ so you can see if you are up to par with the jewelers that you will soon be dealing with. All photos of jewelery designs are credited to the designer, so if you see a piece you like, you will be able to locate them easily.I would reccomend this book to any couple or individual that is thinking of making a diamond purchase, because it is an investment that will last a lifetime.

      Another good resource is

      Diamonds: The Antoinette Matlins Buying Guide (How to Select, Buy, Care for Diamonds With Confidence and Knowledge) Amazon link

      Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. At least you got a new ring and the problem solved.

    I can’t seem to be able to reach this page from my smartphone!

      So sorry about that! WordPress blogs should be visible from smartphones unless they have flash media. There should be a full site hyperlink at the bottom to click if you can’t see the pictures at the bottom. Some smartphones automatically display the mobile site (without pics). Hope that helps.
