Seldomly do we come across a jewelry design that is so simple and yet alluring at the same time. But the Empowered lines of bracelets and necklaces by Maya J manage to do both. Beautifully designed, each bracelet and necklace bring to light the affirmations we hold so dearly in our hearts and minds.

These script necklaces and bracelets are the perfect gift. And at $35 each, how could anyone go wrong? It’s probably why Oprah made it one of  Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2018!

One of the best things about doing what I do is that I often get to play a role in one of the most important parts of almost any love story. Allow me to explain. In any love story you have a simple premise; someone…finds someone else…and eventually they fall deeply in love. They promise to spend a long life hand in hand and usually end up creating and forever adding to what becomes a wonderful family. A family whose members will often end up starting the very same cycle of life all over again in the decades that follow. All in all, that is how most love is found, grown, and shared.

When I reflect back upon my years in this business I find myself in awe at the amount of people whose lives have been affected by something small that we did. You see, no matter who plays the leads in the love story, there almost always comes a point in time when someone feels the need to show someone else just how much they love them. And this is where we come in. We have sold hundreds upon hundreds of engagement rings and wedding bands to lovers over the years. And these people wear our rings daily. They use these rings as a constant reminder of the love they have and of the love they will continue to build. They use these rings to share their love of each other with the rest of the world. Families are formed. Families are grown. And when it’s time to do so, the next generation creates families of their own.

In some small way…we get to say that we played a role in this huge part of life and love. A part for which I am eternally grateful. Here’s a few pictures of just some of the rings that managed to star in these small roles over the past year.

Most of these pictures are of works created by Todd Pownell, Todd reed, and Chris Ploof. If you’d like to see more of what we have in our current collection, then visit our Engagement Ring and Wedding Band pages. In the meantime…keep finding, building, and sharing your love.

Wishes & Wishpapers

How often do we find ourselves wishing and hoping for something? A wish for a change in our day to day lives. We wish for changes in our jobs, our relationships or even just changes in ourselves. While I am fairly certain that a wish is nothing more than a expression of our desires, I am also fairly certain that given the right amount of intention and energy, that wish very well might come true. Keeping it alive in our thoughts on a day to day basis is truly the only way that we can actually make anything come true.

The beauty of one of our newest collections is that its entire purpose is to make it possible to bring the wish with you wherever you go. Each of Wishbeads bracelets are made of semi-precious stones that are believed to carry with them healing properties to help with anything we may need in our lives. The bracelets are made with stones of Labradorite for Clarity, Lapis for Intention, Jasper for Grounding, Agate for Centering, Amethyst for Intuition, and Lava for Calming, And the best part is that each of the bracelets have a clasp that unscrews to hold a small rolled up Wishpaper that allows you to write a wish upon it.

Carrying a wish or an intention with you from day to day makes it that much more likely that you will be able to transform hope into a reality. Check out the entire collection of Wishbeads here!

Our Todd Pownell ring sales have been on fire lately! And why wouldn’t they be? Each piece looks like it’s been forged in a lava pit high atop a Hawaiian mountain. They have a unique ability of appealing to both the hardened mountaineer and the refined executive all at the same time.

 

Perhaps nothing draws Todd Pownell‘s clients more than his signature technique of setting the rings’ diamonds upside down. The beauty of the normally unseen side of a cut diamond is stunning. The closeness of the diamond’s angles couldn’t be more evident. Light seems to dance off the diamond with each and every subtle movement of the hand. Making his rings the center of attention no matter when and where they are worn. #ToddPownell
