  • DMC Delorean Watches on Jewelry Affairs

    Posted on by Jewelry Affairs

     

    We are happy to announce that we have team up with team DMC and now our visitors can shop for the original Delorean Watches on our store.

    If there’s one match made in mechanical heaven, it’s got to be cars and watches. While one is large, noisy, and powerful and the other is small, discreet, and precise, both these inventions have long fascinated people who admire them. Both car and watch enthusiasts are passionate about their hobbies—appreciative of both the technical and aesthetic components of these beloved machines.

    Since many car lovers are also watch lovers, it comes as no surprise that automobiles have often influenced watch designs. Take a closer look at the watch market and you’ll see many big brand name watches partnering up with renowned carmakers. Breitling for Bentley watches, Hublot Big Bang Ferrari watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX Aston Martin watches, Parmigiani Bugatti watches, and Baume & Mercier Shelby Cobra are just a few that come to mind. 

    However, many of the watches listed above carry the price tag of an actual car! So we’ve come up with a much, much more affordable option to show your love of an iconic car. Taking one of the most beloved cars in the world, the DeLorean DMC-12, as inspiration, our DMC watches are clearly made for DeLorean—and car fans—everywhere.

    Kim posted a photograph with Elle, who was wearing Babyanything’s Aurora Luna Medallion ($820 with a 42cm chain) and Saint Christopher Medallion ($845 with 55cm chain) and the e-store clicking began.

    "The response has been amazing and we have now started a pre-sale list," Lucie says.

    "The influence of Kim Kardashian and Elle can’t be understated and it’s satisfying to see two beautiful and strong women wearing my pieces," she says.

    "The St Christopher’s medallions weren’t actually due to be released until August, but since wearing them at the KKW beauty launch, Babyanything decided to release them and there is now a waiting list.  They are handcrafted in a small Italian village that actually produces the medallions for the Vatican!" said Lucie.

    Kim, wearing a similar pendant in the post was obviously impressed to with Elle posting:

    "The similarities are uncanny... phone always glued to hand... loves a gold babyanything saint chain... obsessed with the kkwbeauty contouring kit... loves to pout... loves a photo booth... just start calling me K-Elle."

  • Met Gala 2018 - The Best Jewelry on the Red Carpet

    Posted on by Jewelry Affairs

    The arbiters of fashion looked to the heavens above for inspiration at this year’s Met Gala and the jewels worn by the glitterati on the red carpet were up to the divine challenge.

    Heavenly Bodies was the theme of this year’s fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute held Monday and those lucky enough to stroll the majestic steps of the museum to the private dinner inside were wearing their Sunday best with elaborate Catholic-themed outfits by Versace, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Saint Laurent and others.

    Pairing jewels for the costumes must have been a challenge. The usual barrage of diamonds and colorful gems took a back seat for black gems and lacquer. Vintage jewels made appearances but fewer than I would have expected considering the theme. Yes, crosses were a popular motif, along with elaborate filigree and open worked designs. Yellow gold and white metals were both appropriate with the theme and used often.

    No one took to the theme of the event quite like Cartier, which opened up its vault to share its historic Cartier Collection jewels, occasionally paired with some of its contemporary pieces.

    Rihanna co-chair of the event along with Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace wore the Cartier Collection pendant as a necklace. The jewel began its life as a lone crucifix in 1934 made of gold, silver, diamonds, sapphires, round faceted rubies, button pearls, opal and round faceted topazes and then was paired with the “Dove of the Holy Spirit" in 1949, made of gold, diamonds, a 17.20-carat star sapphire, sapphires, rubies, emerald, pearl, moonstones and opal. To further adorn her Papal-inspired outfit, she wore diamond rings by Gilan and Narcisa Pheres, and gold hoop earrings and a pearl ring from Konstantino Jewelry.

    Several others also chose to wear old and new jewels from Cartier.

    Actress Lily Collins wore a Cartier Collection necklace, circa 2007, made of 18k white gold and diamonds Cartier Collection earrings, Paris, 1929, made of silver, 18k white gold, onyx and Cartier Paris Nouvelle Vague ring made of 18k rose gold, black lacquer, diamonds.

    Actress Priyanka Chopra chose several Cartier yellow and rose gold jewels to go with her Ralph Lauren crimson velvet gown, and gold and gem beaded hood, including a Cartier Collection pendant, 2000, 18k yellow gold, rubies, sapphires, emerald a Cartier Collection ring, 1995, 18k yellow gold, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds; two Cartier Collection rings, 1992, 18k yellow gold, rubies Cartier Collection ring, Paris, 1945, 18k yellow gold, emerald, rubies a Cartier Collection ring, 18k yellow gold, blacklacquer, citrine,diamonds a Cartier Collection ring, 2006, 18k yellow gold, blacklacquer, peridot, diamonds Cartier Justeun Clou ring, 18k rose gold, diamonds and a Amulette de Cartier ring, 18k rose gold, onyx, diamond.

    Director Sofia Coppola wore Cartier Collection earrings, platinum and diamonds; and a Cartier Collection bracelet, New York, 1936, platinum, 18k white gold, blacklacquer and diamonds.

    The big bold look of Bulgari’s heritage and contemporary jewels with their elaborate yellow and rose gold designs was a big hit on the religious-themed red carpet.

    Bulgari brand ambassador, Lily Aldridge, wore a number of Bulgari pieces, including a platinum, emerald and diamond High Jewelry necklace a white gold, emerald and diamond Giardini High Jewelry necklace a platinum, emerald, diamond and pearl High Jewelry necklace an emerald and diamond Heritage ring, 1992; and a white gold and diamond High Jewelry ring.
