Cartier Winter Tale

Every year, a beautiful story by Cartier…

A touch of magic can be found inside each red box. This holiday, experience an enchanting winter with playful panther cubs in the clouds above Paris.

A glimpse of Jewellery Arabia 2013

Three halls dipped in gold, silver and precious stones… For yet another year Jewellery Arabia had everything: From mythical collections brought by famous jewelry and watches’ houses to affordable bling bling or even copies of iconic jewelry…

My favorite was Bulgari’s pavilion.

Partly because it hit my “greek sensors”…

First it was the minimalistic dummies on which the beautiful jewelry was showcased and that would resemble figurines borrowed from a Cycladic Art museum.

Then, some of their jewelry showed clear influence from the ancient Mycenaean art. Just look and compare:

Is it my idea? Anyways, their jewelry was exceptional and unique.

Chopard had a beautiful pavilion too and is my favorite of all jewelry makers, but I believe their selection for the exhibition was limited, I can’t hide that I have seen better pieces -for my taste at least- when visiting their shops around the world. Nevertheless they had some really classy men’s watches.

And talking about men’s watches, Montblanc presented their newest collection, a tribute to Nicolas Rieussec, the inventor of the chronograph. Quite interesting.

Then the classic “Princess Grace” collection with watches, pens, and jewelry. Pure Grace.

Finally, the limited edition Leonardo and Albert Ainstein pen collection.

Ring Collection

Hello girlies,

I have bought few rings recently and thought of posting a picture, along with some of my old purchases.

I love big rings in all shapes, design & colour. And I wear a lot of rings day to day basis. Accessories instantly update and make my outfits more interesting.

Most of these rings are fromImage, H&M, Penny’s, Mango, Topshop and few of them are from street markets of Ibiza.

I have a small collection of silver rings. Will post a picture for you later on.

Love,

Dona Lawlor
