And now for some Completely Extravagent

Ileana Makri Diamond Drop EarringsUnless you’re a hugely successful business tycoon or married to royalty, you’d have to be living in an alternate universe to consider spending over two thousand pounds on earrings, or any jewelery for that matter.

But it’s still nice to look, and these Ileana Makri White Diamond Drop Earrings are certainly pleasing to the eye, but devastating to the wallet. Retailing at £2,360, they’re the height of extravagance, but definitely the real deal, diamonds and all. The product description calls them ‘everyday’ earrings, but I’d imagine that’s ‘everyday’ wear for princesses, rather than ‘everyday’ at the office.

For such a high price you can guarantee that these earrings are well made, high quality and built to last, probably forever. And diamonds never go out of fashion.

Nude Jewellery

Nude Mens RingNude Jewellery is a great Mayfair boutique that now has a fab on line store ready for the x-mas rush!!

They stock creations from over 40 designers and to name but a few have original pieces such as hand-hammered gold disc earrings and giant bits of quartz that have been carved into rings. They even have ivory snakeskin cuffs for the more adventurous out there.

They pride themselves on stocking handmade jewellery and like to find the time to seek out up and coming and hard to find designers from all around the world so the collection available is very vast. They can even create custom made jewellery for any budget.

Nude Diamond RingLike many girls out there I have the hard task of finding something affordable yet personal for my man this x-mas. When I checked out Nude Jewellery I was surprised to find this contemporary and stylish ring for just £40. It looks way more expensive that it actually is so if you’re lucky you might be able to save yourself a few bob!!

To give you a good idea about the different price ranges you can find at Nude, it would be rude not to highlight this stunning diamond ring that costs a whopping £2375. In the diamond section of the on line shop, some pieces do not have a price tag so I guess that’s for the lucky ones where money is no object – we can all dream!!

Diamond Braille Dotted Ring

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Braille RingI saw this ‘Touch Ring’ earlier today and thought what a lovely gift for a blind friend or family member. Each ring is specially designed so that the recipient can read the message easily by touching the lettering.

You can customise the gift with your own personal message spelt out in Diamond Braille dots. Your message could read I Love You or I Miss You or you could keep it simple by just writing their name or Mum/Dad. The only people that would know what it said would be those who can read Braille.

The ring can be made from sterling silver, gold, white gold or platinum. You can also choose the material of the lettering so it is completely original. Prices are not available on the website because every ring made is likely to be a one off but you can get a quote via email.

Visit the Stephen Einhorn website for further details about this truly unique product.
