This week is the final week of May Is Gold Month 😩😅
My husband is excited about this week’s trend because he got to be a part of it — GOLD FOR GUYS 📣🤵🏻
He loves stacking karat gold rings on his pinky and ring fingers. He even made a list of rings to look out for in Vegas for him 😆😂
So guys, #showmeyourgold this week—can be anything, doesn’t have to be rings!

My sister-in-law got married yesterday! Thanks so much King Jewelers - Miami, FL & Nashville, TN for letting her choose “anything she wanted” for her wedding day jewels. We went with a statement diamond bracelet, diamond chandelier earrings and a dainty pearl + diamond drop necklace.

Stumbled upon these #diamond paintings by Julie Strawinski - Artist Page and thought they would make the perfect post to tell you that amidst some spring cleaning I did last week (while putting off Vegas planning) I found a stack of flashcards I had made for the @giagrams final exam. I turned them into a blog post called “40 Diamond Facts I Learned While Attending the Gemological Institute of America” — 😁💎

Our May Is Gold Month featured maker this week is Atelier Narce:
▪️He shares with me why he likes working with karat gold:
🗯”I like to work in gold because it enhances the design and the composition of the piece. Gold also lends clarity and radiance to the stones with which I accompany my pieces. On the other hand, the amazing physical properties of gold, such as softness, malleability or its resistance to corrosion, make it relatively easy to work with.”

Did you share your karat gold necklace layers with us over on Instagram?!

Excited to reveal this week's trend with May Is Gold Month

"I am a self-taught artist and designer starting 31 years ago. While living and studying in Florence, I walked in to the jewelry world, literally in to a Florentine goldsmith’s workshop. I started studying the history of jewelry through designing jewelry."

Our May Is Gold Month featured maker this week is Soulbound
▪️She shares with me how karat gold is important in her work:
🗯 “All of my jewelry designs are inspired by video games, so I always try to maintain a feeling of magic and fantasy. I want my customers to feel regal when they wear my jewelry, so gold is the perfect choice. Gold is rare, beautiful, and has been used in jewelry since ancient times.”

A new week, a new karat gold trend with May Is Gold Month 💫
This week we are talking about NECK JAZZ, a category I’ve been working on lately as I’ve realized layering necklaces is a specialized skill. Two things that help: a gold collar/choker and a “fringe” style necklace. Trust me 🙋🏼‍♀️

Our May Is Gold Month featured maker this week is Page Sargisson Jewelry
▪️She shares with me why she loves working with karat gold:
🗯 “Casting my pieces in gold is the best. I work in wax and often leave the file marks on my wax so you see the “hand of the artist” when you’re wearing my pieces. For 18KT gold rings, these file marks soften over time. I always tell couples whom I make wedding bands for that it’s sort of like a marriage in that it softens and smooths over time.”
