This is simply our kind of glam homy read ;) And a New York Times bestseller too!
As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious. What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire.

What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, Stoned breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace.

Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, Stoned tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.

The round cut:
It is about simplicity, a couple that has been together for a long time.
The Pear cut:
A combination of marquise and round cuts, this cut brings a certain
edge and is best kept for the daring couples.

This is for the couple that loves all things luxury. This ring says I have it all and am not afraid to
be who I am.

bracelet to me pls!

18k white and yellow gold in chain shape, with round brilliant diamonds. Our Danelian Arrow and the all-Emerald cuts bracelets.

Is there a more feminine sound
than the sound of outstanding pieces of jewelry dancing
to the movement of your hands?

Two is better than one. Especially if it is a double round
of Danelian oval cut sapphire braceletes.

Rock Deco is always a good idea.
Made from dark gold, white brilliant diamonds and high clarity rubies.
