They had another trunk show. Obviously, I was there.
This trunk show’s focus was fashion diamonds: diamond fashion jewelry. Let me tell you, a kid in a candy store’s got nothing on me at a jewelry show. I took so many pictures that I’m going to have to make it a two-parter. The aquamarine and diamond stunners above are the work of Coast Diamonds, as are these babies:
This is going to be another photo-heavy recap. I’ll give info when I have it, but if any of these beauties capture your heart please leave a comment and I’ll put you in touch with someone who can talk to you about potential purchasing.
Is this not the most incredible garnet you’ve ever seen? Such a rich, rosy raspberry hue.
My hands loved these Coast Diamond bracelets. They were so heavy and cool on my skin. My camera couldn’t capture the true fire of those sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds, so I made you a little video.
I enjoyed how perfectly this rose gold ring matched my nails. This little beauty is by Martin Flyer.
Coast Diamond’s impossibly delicate diamond pendant looks is a beautiful cross between a spiderweb and a rose window.
I adore this Martin Flyer emerald and diamond ring. It looks like the world’s most tiniest and most fabulous turtle. Look how precisely set it is – it’s hard to make out the individual stones.
Stackables! I adored the Art Deco feel of these wedding bands on the bottom of the stack in the forefront, and the twist design of the ones above them.
This spectacular Martin Flyer bracelet is set with yellow and white diamonds. The white diamonds are actually bullet cut, rather than emerald. That’s how they fit together like that in the center of the X shapes.
Here’s an incredible detail on one of Coast Diamond’s rose gold and diamond engagement rings. It would be perfect with the twisted rose gold and diamond wedding band in the photo above, don’t you think?
More gemstone and diamond beauties from Coast. I’d be just fine if my hand looked like this all the time.
You really needed to see this Martin Flyer from multiple angles to fully appreciate the details.
Here’s the little sister of that huge Coast garnet ring I showed you near the beginning. This one really wanted to come home with me. Tragically, adopting it would have cost me several months’ rent. I’m glad I have photo documentation of our brief and glorious time together.
This is by Martin Flyer. Looks like big pear-cut diamonds in the centers of the petals, right? It’s actually many very precisely-set smaller stones. Such a well made piece.
I’ll be posting Part II of this fashion diamonds trunk show recap in a few weeks. Stay tuned for many more pretties!
A huge and heartfelt thanks to Mervis Diamonds for inviting me and letting me have the run of their store and fashion diamonds for several hours – especially to Hailey, Mervis’ lovely and talented social media maven, who accompanied me the entire time despite the fact that she had broken several bones just a few days earlier. You’re a champ, Hailey.
