The Gods must be lavish

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:30:55 PM in Konstantino (28)

It’s renowned for Greek craftsmanship, inspired by Hellenistic culture and a timeless beauty to behold. No, it’s not the Parthenon or any temples that hark back to ancient Greece. It’s Konstantino, the luxurious jewelry line from the land that gave birth to western civilization. The propensity for glitz is evident in Konstantino, not the least on its Iris collection.  The floral motifs engraved in the rings and the golden accents evoke an Olympian origin. The gods must have been wearing Konstantino to show their luxurious and lavish pedestal. The Ilios collection is equally impressive, if not more. The cognac quarts and citrine exhibit exclusive elegance, as if the god poured champagne in it and molded this collection as a gift to men. It’s a gift to us, indeed, but by Konstantino, whose creativity is almost out of this world. 
 
Konstantino is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.
 
 

Living back in time

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:29:44 PM in Hamilton Watch (29)

Wearing luxury timepieces go beyond keeping tab on time. It’s also wearing your style. And the Hamilton Timeless Classic collection has lots of it. The Thin-O-Matic for one can’t get any elegant and classic with the leather strap, a throwback to the uncomplicated style of the sixties. The slender thin casing is timeless, the linear lines gently envelope the timepiece without any flamboyance. It’s seriously straightforward, perfect for a guy who demands to-the-point discussions. The dial and numerals are in retro style, subtly entrenched under a scratch-resistant sapphire clear glass.  The Hamilton Thin-O-Matic is actually a replica of the original sixties model, but given a modern twist inside. Its features include water resistance up to 50 m, 42 MM and automatic movement. It is also engraved with a Hamilton heritage logo for posterity. 
 
Hamilton Watch is available at Schwarzschild's at Carry Town.
 
 

No less than a Kirk Kara

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:28:29 PM in Kirk Kara (30)

Looking for an impressive wedding ring? Let us suggest the Kirk Kara Dahlia Collection. It is regally set with quality diamonds and gemstones. The craftsmanship of the band is superb, the result of the Kirk Kara jewellery-making mastery that dates back over a century. The hand-engraving is also seamless, the swirling letters neatly etched inside the band. Likewise, the precious stones are set firmly in place and without blemish. The Dahlia Collection is elegantly classic with a solitaire diamond and contemporarily stylish in multiple set stones. It’s no small wonder why Kirk Kara is a proud winner of the 2013 Jeweler’s Choice Awards, winning six years in a row for the Bridal category. The judges love Kirk Kara and you’ll likely, too. You wedding deserves no less than a Kirk Kara.

Emblem of love

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:27:26 PM in Judith Ripka (22)

Giving your loved one luxury jewellery is not just about the material value. For Judith Ripka it goes beyond the luxury; it’s personal. An elegant necklace doesn’t only impress, it’s a symbol of the man’s love and passion that a woman wears around her neck, that part of the body where she’s vulnerable as it is a source of pleasure. Gold and platinum earrings are not meant to flaunt luxury. The woman wears them close to her ears, as she wants you and your love close to her. The diamond set ring doesn’t mean you’re buying her out with luxury. Definitely not. It’s your declaration to the world that she’s worth the best in life, and you’re willing to give the best for her. Where others see luxury jewellery as a symbol of wealth, Judith Ripka sees it as your emblem of love.

Wear not just time but heritage

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:26:05 PM in Breitling (27)

It’s the heritage. When someone asks you why you choose a particular luxury timepiece brand, tell him it’s the history of excellence that goes with the signature. That’s what you are really paying the price for, the value of the brand. Any highly skilled watchmaker can make a stylish luxury watch. Precision engineering technologies are readily available to big watch companies to manufacture highly accurate watches. A brand can easily make popular with a big marketing budget and celebrity endorsements. Setting the watch with precious stones and metals make it elegant, stylish and, yes, luxurious. But not all can tell a beginning like inventing the modern chronograph or being the first chronograph in space or being the standard time-keeping device from the early to the present day of commercial aviation. Only a Breitling can. Wear heritage, not just a timepiece. 
 
Breitling is available at Schwarzschild's at Carry Town.
 
 

Heaven and earth luxury

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:24:43 PM in John Hardy (29)

On one end are the luxury-loving elite who are accused to have little regard for the rest of the world. On another end are the tree huggers, criticized to be militant and too eager for socialist views. Well luxury and fair trade and sustainability can co-exist. At least in a John Hardy jewellery, the Asian-inspired luxury jewellery brand self-styled to have been manufactured using earth-friendly and sustainable practices. John Hardy jewellery is hand-made one at a time, a practice that creates more livelihood in the community where the pieces are made. It celebrates tribal arts and culture and adapts them to modern design that creates a unique John Hardy signature. Earrings are not only elegant, but mystic, too. Necklaces become symbolic. Bracelets become cultural. These are John Hardy traits that evoke heavenly luxury, while keeping the brand grounded to earth.

Heartfelt luxury

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:38:38 AM in Hearts on Fire (30)

It rivals the most luxurious jewellery necklaces you can give to your loved one. To say the Hearts on Fire Serpentine is elegant is an understatement. The glimmering gold shaped into a heart encompasses a Hearts on Fire diamond in the middle. The heart casing holds the stone delicately as a feather flies in the wind, yet with the firmness of two steady fingers. At first glance, the lady is captivated by the slenderness of the heart, and once she touches it the unblemished, smooth golden surface will melt her heart. The Hearts on Fire Serpentine is totally sensual jewellery, one that evokes an unmistakably feminine aura. It’s delicate but firm. It’s luxury she can wear in confidence, a style that tells others this woman is seriously sophisticated.

One ring to lure them all

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:26:12 AM in Wellendorf (21)

The Wellendorff Purple Ring collection, that is. Renowned for its spinning rings, Wellendorff adds to its portfolio an array of rings in purple hues. In 18k gold, diamonds set in cold enamel, the spinning purple rings are elegant, unique and undeniable a magnet for attention. The Magic Purple is especially impressive with its three lanes of moving parts. The wavy patterns create an almost magical illusion when moved, and your eyes are helplessly mesmerized following the illusion. The Purple Wings is its more simple version, yet the illusion is still evident and the elegance unmistakable. Similarly, the Purple Kiss in white gold features a one lane moving part, but it’s studded with diamonds. For a totally luxurious style, match the purple rings with other Wellendorff jewellery pieces such as necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

It’s better than manly bravado

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:24:58 AM in Tissot (27)

Tissot is synonymous to manly sports like motor racing, basketball and ice hockey. But the Swiss watchmaker has also a wide selection for the ladies. They have the same precision engineered parts and reliable timekeeping movement that made Tissot a favourite official timekeeper for major sports events such as the Asian Games, FIBA and MotorGP, but sans the manly bravado. Instead, Tissot ladies watches are sporty feminine: confident, strong and pretty. Take the Tissot PRC 200 Lady. Its slender, color interchangeable strap and neater dials are elegant, but you can sense a strong character that tells you it can take on any contact sports. At the same time, it is delicate; its curves reveal a woman who can also take it easy and enjoy lighter activities as yoga and meditation.

The Key to art is subtlety

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:23:58 AM in Suna Brothers (22)

They are meant to melt a woman’s heart. Desirable, slender and subtle, the Suna Bros. Queen Anne’s Lace is what elegant jewellery sets are. The lace pattern gives the collection a consistent delicate, almost vulnerable, appearance. The pieces are undeniably feminine like a flower ready to bloom. The necklaces are thinly set in platinum chains and accented by diamonds. The earrings are likewise in platinum and set with diamonds or emeralds. The brooch is impressively detailed in lace patterns that mimic the intricate lines of a snowflake. Even the bracelets are crafted in fine lines and soft tones. The Suna Bros. Queen Anne’s Lace is the perfect complement to your cocktail gown or any formal dress. They may be thin and almost invisible, yet the more they’ll grab attention in a party.

This line features Slane jewellery in various materials, such as sterling silver, yellow gold, crystal and diamond. The collection also includes the use of gems as accents like turquoise, sapphires and pearl. Mirroring a basket’s weaving pattern, the bracelets are at once elegant and eccentric. Likewise, the earrings up the creativity with its tiny depictions of baskets set to hang elegantly, albeit with a little tease in them. On the other hand, the Slane Basket Weave ring is bold in its weave interpretation. Some ring designs are accented by gems or diamonds, like the pendants with onyx and blue topaz set in sterling silver. The Slane Basket Weave has more array of luxurious, eccentric, elegant jewellery styles.

A Contrast of creative outbursts

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:14:44 AM in Roberto Coin (29)

Why do Italians have a flair for design? The high-end jewellery brand, Roberto Coin, is but one case how Italian designers create passion out of art. It’s almost in their blood to outdo themselves, a trait that dates back from Roman artisans through the Renaissance artists to contemporary artists like Roberto Coin. When you wear a Roberto Coin piece, it’s like wearing an art heritage moulded into modern style. His works have confident craftsmanship, trendy without succumbing to fly-by-night style. The Roberto Coin bracelets exemplify this creative outburst. They are as varied as thin, vulnerable golden strings accented by gems, as they can be boldly wide in silver and gold. They can be as smooth, gleaming and slender, as they are crafted with intricate links that run around the bracelet. The ideas are eccentric yet grounded on reality. That’s Roberto Coin for you. 
 
Roberto Coin is available in Schwarzschild's at Alverser Drive.
 
 

What about bracelets as gift?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:13:19 AM in Pandora (22)

Fair or not, bracelets are the less popular cousins of rings and necklaces when it comes to luxury jewellery gift-giving. Where rings and necklaces are the preferred gifts to impress a girl, bracelets are hardly an option. Maybe because bracelets tend to be more complex in design and appearance, and the man is lost without an in-depth understanding of how these trinkets work or match a dress. Well, if the man goes for Pandora bracelets, he is likely to get it right. The slim, subtle, neat and simple concepts of Pandora bracelets are created to match a casual or glamorous outfit. It is likely to impress women with varied tastes for style and fashion. In smooth leather, silver, gold or fabric, the Pandora bracelets offer the guy a wide selection. And rather than be intimidated, he will find each Pandora bracelet the perfect choice.

Limited luxury

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:10:53 AM in Raymond Weil (23)

The best timepieces around are not necessarily the most luxurious or most popular signatures. Sometimes it is the watch in limited edition that lends a more sophisticated style and intrinsic value. Like the limited edition Nabucco Cuore Caldo Twelve by Raymond Weil. The style is bold and modern, yet you feel a history of precision engineering and craftsmanship behind this Swiss timepiece. It features the word “Twelve” etched in gold, a philosophical take on the numeral that separates day and night. The dials and rim are likewise in gold, which provide a solid contrast to the titanium parts and carbon fiber body. Only seventy six units of the Nabucco Cuore Caldo are manufactured, making it a prize collectible or a gift for a very important person.

Uniquely Stein

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:07:09 AM in Philip Stein (20)

Philip Stein is always a luxury timepiece for the fashionably confident. Its watches can be liberal in design, as one model, the Signature, features two sets of dials that function seamlessly. Likewise, the Prestige model can be especially broad-minded with the inner engineering revealed via a peephole. It is confident and even defiant for a luxury watch. Meantime, the Active model also has its share of unique appeal: the bold golden rim and its matte black hue gives it a masculine look, while maintaining its feminine side with the slender strap. On the other hand, the Prestige timepiece is unmistakably feminine in its red theme. It teases for attention with a little naughtiness alongside. Philip Stein also has a slew of interchangeable straps to give each model subtle variations.

Diamonds are forever, even after marriage

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:04:54 AM in Martin Flyer (24)

Diamond rings often bring to mind engagements and weddings, but they can also be perfect gifts for anniversaries. In fact, they should be more meaningful as a gift after you have proven your long-lasting love, not before. The Martin Flyer Classic Diamond Anniversary Band tells your partner how much you still value her; not even time can diminish your love and passion. Where the engagement ring declared your love and the wedding band manifested your commitment on this love, the Martin Flyer diamond anniversary ring is a gift of reassurance. Ironically, diamonds may be the ultimate material gift for a woman, yet as an anniversary gift, the same “materialism” seems to transform into a metaphysical gift, something that tells your woman that she is always worth the best thing the world can offer.

Going Africa

Beautiful in deep blue and sterling silver

The Konstantino Thalassa collection extends the signature’s thematic take on ancient Greece and Byzantine art. A wide array of jewelleries from necklaces to bracelets and rings, the Konstantino Thalassa line seems jewellery pieces stolen from the gods in Mt. Olympus. The deep blue gemstone runs across the theme set in sterling silver. Miniature blue gems are also studded around the main stones creating a dazzling play of the deep blue Mediterranean around Thalassa.

Coils of elegance

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:34:23 AM in Kirk Kara (30)

The ring coils around the finger in a joyful state. Or so it seems that a Kirk Kara engagement ring, the Pirouetta Collection, is playfully hand-engraved in twisting precious metal.  The Kirk Kara Pirouetta rings come in a wide range of designs, from a single diamond set in platinum for the lady and to a yellow gold band studded with tiny diamonds around for the man. The rings combine both white and yellow gold or they are used separately for a more seamless elegance.  A Pirouetta item also features blue gems to accentuate the diamond and its platinum body. You can go for the simple lines or the more elaborate patterns that promise to impress the lady. Either, giving a Kirk Kara Pirouetta engagement ring is a serious statement that tells your lady how much you cherish her.

Elegant chaos

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:32:26 AM in Judith Ripka (22)

The bracelet is an explosion of various colorful gems set in sterling silver. The silver itself is etched and crafted with intricate designs that seem to swallow the gems, which appear randomly strewn across the bracelet. Judith Ripka Essentials calls it the pop of color—it is colorful, alright—and the bracelet is playing dangerously close to too much of  a good thing. But it’s not. Judith Ripka Essentials knows how to create order in chaos or make chaos follow order, and the bracelet is testament to this. The effect, in fact, is the opposite: despite too many elements competing for your attention, somehow, this Judith Ripka Essentials bracelet is simple and elegant. Different gems come together as one seamless jewellery piece and the sterling silver provides the medium. The bracelet is complemented by a pair of earrings in pink and purple hues.

Combine precision, performance and elegance in a timepiece and you get Breitling, the classic Swiss luxury watch that demanding professionals from pilots to divers have relied on to keep tab of time. It is an alpha male brand, but it doesn’t hide its flair for style, too.

Diamonds are also studded around the rim to exude glamour, while the Breitling Chronomat 41 ticks for a lifetime on self-winding movement.

The Classic Chain starts from the basic designs, such as the Slim Kick Cuff with Black Finish and the Single Station Kick Cuff accented by a tiny gemstone in the middle. Or you can go intricate with the Multi-geometric link bracelet, which is set with a solid main gemstone and a few minor ones around the chain. The Wide Link Cuff, meantime, is solid in sterling silver and 22-karat gold. Seamless simple lines provide an elegant finish to it. The Classic Chain Collection has more designs and materials to offer, each one taking off from that mystic Balinese art. 
 
John Hardy is available in Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.
