Here is Ilaria, the Hearts On Fire head designer.  This look is so perfect for a day at the office,a casual day with friends, or a nice lunch outfit.  Professional yet so very stylish. She has layered three diamond pendants going smallest to largest.  Continuing the layering, she has stacked many stunning beaded bracelets. Simplicity at its finest.  She tops it off with one over-the-top ring that is just so gorgeous and truly a must have.

“don’t let anyone dull your sparkle”

THis mark SCHNEIDER design has to be absolutely one of my all time favorites. this takes criss-cross rings onto an entirely new level, of course without stealing the center stage. the six prong head and euro shank really give it the durability to last a lifetime while shining through everyday wear and tear. this ring is perfectly matched to its name “THe Bedazzle”

PEARL:JUNE

The pearl forms when an irritant, such as a small parasite or a grain of sand, lodges in the flesh of an oyster, muscle or clam. Because of this irritant, a substance called “nacre” starts to form around it. Over several years, the layers of nacre start to build up around the irritant creating a beautiful pearl. Not all pearls are made in nature (called freshwater pearls), laboratories began a process of their own to make pearls by placing a piece of shell or bead in the clam to stimulate the production of nacre (called cultured pearls). Natural pearls are found in the Persian Golf as well as in the waters off Japan, Australia, Panama, Venezuela and California. They come in a variety of colors including pure white, pink, yellow, gray and black. They also come in many different shapes and sizes.

The pearl is the symbol of woman’s perfect beauty. It is believed that chronic headaches and migraines can be alleviated or completely cured by wearing a pearl necklace directly on the skin. Pearls also reduce allergies. A pearl necklace is believed to warn sensitive people of imminent disaster. Psychologically, pearl promote wisdom and committment well into old age. They are considered to be a symbol of purity and are often given to celebrate a marriage or the birth of a child. The pearl is the accepted gemstone for the 30th wedding anniversary.

June also has 2 alternative birthstones: the first is Moonstone. It varies in color from clear to blue-white or peach. It was considered by ancient civilizations to be a sacred stone, bestowing the wearer with great spiritual understanding. A gift of the stone is symbolic of health and longevity. The second is Alexandrite, a yellowish or brownish green colored stone. It is symbolic of joy and good fortune.
