Effortlessly Wearable and Decisively Dramatic…
Did you ever wonder why black is considered to be the color of elegance and sophistication? Perhaps it is because black is sexy, sultry, glamorous, trendy and trendless—mysterious, timeless, dramatic and powerful. Black is luxury! Today more than ever, many jewelers are showing their dark sides, using a range of black stones — onyx, spinel, diamonds and sapphires — to create a refined sense of drama and intrigue. And no gem is as hot right now as black spinel! It is sparkling, strong, brilliant and has the look of black diamonds at a fraction of the cost. It is almost magical how black spinel has taken over as the LBG – (little black gemstone)! Unlike most black diamonds, which are treated to produce their dark color, black spinel only needs to be polished and cut to bring out its magnificent natural luster. Black diamonds are also very difficult to cut and polish, are extremely expensive, and are usually only seen in very small sizes. Lucky for all of us, black spinel is available in an array of sizes, is a durable black gem and sparkles with unrivaled brilliance. And, it is only found in a few locations throughout the world. In celebration of its rarity, I have created a collection of black spinel jewelry that is edgy, cool and iconic-a twist on tradition and infused with 24/7 wearable opulence.
Black has been a fashion and luxury statement for decades—ever since the introduction of the LBD (little black dress) in the 1920’s. The popularity of anything black is unmatchable. So it is no surprise that black spinel is the LBG (little black gemstone) of any chic girl’s uber fabulous fine jewelry wardrobe. To learn more about black spinel and to be one of the first Rarities girls to see my Black Spinel Today’s Special, please tune in to HSN on October 20th at midnight!! See you soon… I will be wearing black of course!
