Last days of summer

If you can’t go to the seaside, than bring the sea to you! Just imagine that you’re on the beach, feeling the warm touch of the sun and looking at the blue water. You can see a sailing boat in the distance. The sand underneath your feet is so soft and the seashells shine in the sun. There is so much calm around you and yet so much thrill in the sea.

Do you see yourself in this picture? If it's difficult to visualize it, than let me help you. You can create your own puzzle with the jewels below.

La vita e bella

All I can think of these final summer days is how lovely a trip to Italy would be. I've only been to Rome once and I fell in love with this city. What can I say? I would love wandering the entire Italy, enjoying la dolce vita and the delicious Italian dishes.

No wonder where the idea of this post came from, right? :)

Emerald earrings

Pantone, the renowned authority on color, launched an interesting contest at the beginning of this week. The challenge is to capture emerald – the proclaimed color of 2013 – in any object around you, take a picture of it and share it with others. 

This is how I got the idea of looking for emerald jewelry. I simply adore this color and the challenge I've set for myself was to find amazing emerald earrings and show you my findings.

So here they are, I hope you like them:

Craving for chocolate… diamonds in jewelry

Some time ago I bought from France a necklace made of beads that looked very much like candies. I still have that necklace and every time I look at it I remember my friends telling me how delicious those beads seem to be.

My mind flew back to the necklace these days as I've come across some beautiful jewelry items, with a color that reminds you of chocolate. The diamonds are actually called chocolate diamonds.

I love brown jewelry ‘cause it can be worn with almost anything. It is elegant and delicate, don’t you think so?
