The Infantry watch

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:40:58 PM in Swiss Army (24)

The Swiss Army knife was inspired by military necessity, a utility pocket knife with multiple uses in the field. A knife, screwdriver, scissors, tweezers, toothpick, ruler, etc… all in the pocket of an infantryman. Not surprisingly, Swiss Army has a watch model inspired by the ubiquitous foot soldier. The Infantry Chronograph has the brown finish look of vintage infantryman, but it’s actually a sports watch. It’s outfitted with a Ronda 5030-D quartz movement. It features three dial counters with conventional pushbuttons in each side of the crown. The sleek casing is at once rugged and elegant, and the dials and numbers against the deep brown backdrop elicit a vintage look. This sports watch can easily transforms into a dress watch style in casual, semi-formal suit.
Swiss Army is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive.

What does it mean when you gift someone a pen?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:39:39 PM in Roberto Coin (29)

The meanings can be as varied as your mind is creative. When jewelry gift ideas tend to be repetitive or a little stretched out, giving a pen as a gift can be creative. A pen symbolizes intellect. If you’re giving it to an academician it bestows respect to his profession and recognition of his important role. To a girl with the inclination to write diary entries like Bridget, a gift of pen signifies nostalgia, a recollection of memories. To a writer, a pen stands for introspection, the ability to see things differently or in a deeper level. You’ll be glad to know that Roberto Coin, yes, the Italian jewelry signature, has a line of Art Deco-inspired pens in metal with printed patterns. Give it a try.
Roberto Coin is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.

Charmed mistake

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:38:28 PM in Pandora (22)

I made the mistake of forgetting our anniversary (uh-oh). I’ve been married for five years and I couldn’t believe I’d succumb to this crazy situation when a man forgets his wedding anniversary. How could I? It didn’t help that I was busy living up to my beautiful wife’s expectations, or at least my expectation of her expectations of me. When I married her I promised to give her a comfortable life and the best that I can deliver. Of course that means I should work double time having no plantations or blue chip stocks to inherit. Ironically, that drive to give her a nice life made me forget the day I made that vow. I thought to win her over again by buying a Pandora Jewelry bracelet with alphabet charms that spell: “Will you marry me, again?” Hope it works.

Raymond Weil’s musicality

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:37:07 PM in Raymond Weil (23)

Raymond Weil has always been inspired by the intricacies of music and the Maestro collection follows this rhythm. This watch feels more like jazz; it’s got a groove but not that loud and its rhythm is smooth with unexpected turns. The rose gold PVD plating and stainless steel casing houses a mechanical movement with automatic winding, whose balance wheel is visible through an opening at 12 o’clock. It’s protected by an anti-scratch, anti-glare sapphire crystal and comes with a Raymond Weil logo engraved in the crown. The leather strap with traditional buckle reveals conservatism, while the black dial with indexes in zone reflects elegance. It’s a perfect unison of function and design, much like jazz music combines precision while keeping a surprise at the bend.

History lesson

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:35:53 PM in Mikimoto (30)

You may be proud showcasing your Mikimoto pearl necklace in a cocktail event and rightly so, they are impressive. Since you’re likely to attract attention and elicit a conversation around pearls, here’s one historical trivia to impress the gawkers. Pearl jewelry has been around North America even before Columbus discovered the land for Europeans. North American tribes and Pacific Islanders were known to use pearls as a status symbol (much like what you’re doing today). Pearl jewelry was also used to signify one’s religions belief. A shaman would likely be wearing a pearl necklace as a symbol of his importance. Outside of the New World, people in the Persian Gulf region would bury their dead with a pearl placed in the right hand dating back 6,000 years.

Depart in style

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:34:41 PM in Metalsmiths Sterling (21)

Now you have one more reason to come early at the airport. The U.K.-based Metalsmiths Sterling is now available in a U.S. airport. The luxury sterling silver jewelry signature opened its first American airport shop at the Airmall in Pittsburgh International last March. The 634-square-foot store offers the signature rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets across over 30 exclusive lines. The move marks the strategy of the fashion-forward brand to expand its American market by catching tourists who are profiled as people with disposable income. Likewise, tourists from other countries can bring home a Metalsmiths Sterling jewelry as a souvenir. Lee Konidas, CEO, said the company anticipates growth in airport traffic especially in Pittsburgh. The Metalsmiths Sterling airport store is offering customized designs that complement the brand’s iconic style.

How to sleep on long-haul flights

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:33:23 PM in Philip Stein (20)

It’s ten hours from Nagoya to New York and you’re trapped in a tiny seat sandwiched between two big guys. Your legs can’t stretch any further and your arms are squeezed in because both armrests are taken by your neighbors. You think of sleeping the whole flight through, but how can you? Get your phone and listen to soft music. Better yet listen to static because studies have shown a continuous flat acoustic line can send the brain into a catatonic state. Another good dozing tactic is to listen to an academic lecture about the merits of kernings in visual communications or a similar type of talk in YouTube. Seriously, you can wear a Philip Stein, the watch that balances your inner frequency so you can have a good night hundreds of miles up there.

How to choose the engagement ring

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:31:46 PM in Memoire (23)

Eager to buy the engagement ring? Before you head off to a shop where salespeople will try to ensnare you to buy the most expensive item that you can afford, keep in mind these tips. Buy the style that your girlfriend prefers. Observe the type of jewelry she wears every day. Does she like silver over gold? Is she a fan of gemstones or diamonds? If yes, she may like a single stone more than an elaborate design. Get her a remarkable diamond solitaire in platinum ring like a Mémoire. But if she leans more on gold, by all means make the ring gold, either yellow or rose. For added insight, bring along a woman friend or maybe your sister or hers. She should be able to balance your choice since men tend to see jewelry in monetary terms, while women admire them for what they truly are, works of art.

Rusty ring

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:30:19 PM in Martin Flyer (24)

Twenty years ago I gave my girlfriend a box that contained a Spartan ring to ask her hand in marriage. The ring was one of those pieces they’d display in mall kiosks or booths. Funny because the rings were just laid down there neatly arranged but exposed to the passing crowd. It’s like telling you they’re so cheap that the seller didn’t even mind if he lost one or two from pickpockets. When my girlfriend got this ring, she wetted her eyes a little and said yes. It was a simple ring back when I was living a simple life. I had a great career run soon that would take me all the way to C-level post. I’ve bought my wife other jewelry since then, expensive ones like a Martin Flyer pair. She loved it. But nothing compared to that old rusty ring she still keeps in her drawer.

Omega necklaces, antithesis to men

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:28:56 PM in Omega (26)

You wouldn’t expect fine necklace jewelry from Omega. But, yes, the official NASA watch brand has a complete line of elegant necklaces in 18k white, rose and red gold. The Long Necklace Omega Constellation is accented by rings that run around the necklace, a take on celestial bodies in deep space. The design is simple yet it exudes a confident chic. On the other hand, the Omega Dewdrop Necklace presents a more opulent style with diamond highlights in its main pendant. Dewdrop charms dot the necklace’s length. For a classic look, the Necklace Omega Flower in red gold complements a black dress for that glamorous evening dress attire. Next time you take your wife to an Omega dealer to buy your watch, don’t say we didn’t warn you they have these alluring necklaces.
Omega is available at Schwarzschild's at Carry Town.

Cool company

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:27:44 PM in Marco Bicego (31)

Byzantine connection

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:26:26 PM in Konstantino (28)

Byzantine art would have a deep influence in royal opulence and Renaissance culture for its rich tapestry and deep intricate lavish designs. Silver, gold, silk and gemstones combined to create one of ancient civilizations most impressive opulent crafts and artefacts. This is the inspiration behind Konstantino jewelry including its Nykta Collection. The set includes bracelets, rings and necklace featuring black onyx accented by luminescent pearls and set in sterling silver and gold highlights. Nykta recreates the Mediterranean ancient night with the quiet dark sea softly kissing the sleeping cliffs of Athens. The collection exhibits the signature Konstantino style of complex patterns inspired by Greek and Byzantine art. Nykta is perfect for any formal evening dinner or cocktail event when you simply must impress other guests.

American Swiss

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:25:04 PM in Hamilton Watch (29)

We’re less romantic now?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:23:42 PM in Kirk Kara (30)

Recent surveys found that more Americans are living by their lonesome today than over two decades ago. In 1970, the percentage of single households in the U.S. was 17%. In 2012 it’s 27%. In case we want a companion, we either sleep with our phones or our pet. Moreover 69% of Americans are unsure whether an outing with someone they liked was a date or not. But the most disturbing, although funny, fact is more Americans admitted they can’t live without their phone (26%) than sex (20%). It’s time Americans get romance back to their lives. Date someone you like. Give her flowers. Go see a movie. And if things develop into something more serious, give her a Kirk Kara. Thank God for diamond rings.

Memorable birthday surprises

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:22:23 PM in Judith Ripka (22)

Giving your loved one a luxury jewelry bracelet like a Judith Ripka Essentials Silver Collection is a sure fire way to surprise her. The intricate details and finely crafted sterling silver of Judith Ripka Essentials are elegantly impressive. Nonetheless, here are other ways to surprise your partner on her birthday. Line up a whole-day itinerary of going to her favorite places to eat or spend time. Spread out the gift-giving moment across the whole day.

How to look really cool

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:21:08 PM in Breitling (27)

James Dean was the epitome of coolness, but he didn’t have the monopoly on it. You, too, can look cool without even appearing that you’re trying. Here are some tips. Wear an all-black wardrobe at one point in your life. Then lean on a white fence or wall and you’ll look stunningly like in a black-and-white portrait. Coif the hair. Put some gel and give it a swagger look. Wear an off-looking outfit like a tweed jacket with an attitude. You have to show that you can carry the oddity and still come up chic. You can also do this with a watch. For instance, wear a Breitling Navitimer in a suit. Although the timepiece looks complex, its black tones can match a formal wear. Complement it with a really piercing stare and you’re off to being the next James Dean.

First date flops

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:19:51 PM in John Hardy (29)

Who said it’s going to be smooth and easy. First dates can be as tricky as the most complex math problem. Or as easy as silk if you keep tab of these first date mistakes to avoid. Never ever talk about the ex, or if she asks, just keep a casual short answer. It didn’t work out should be the quick answer. Likewise, don’t flirt with anyone except with the girl in front of you. If you’ve get that habit of giving the waitress the extra smile, drop it on the first date. It also still pays to foot the bill, or at least the coffee. Women will never admit it, but they feel more valued when men go for that extra mile or cash in this case. As for your outfit, don’t underdress or overdress. Just keep a neat casual suit, nicely polished pair of loafers and simple but elegant accessories like a John Hardy coiled bracelet.

When you knew she’s the one

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:18:50 PM in Hearts on Fire (30)

How to tell if she’s the woman you need to marry, the one who you’ll be giving a Hearts On Fire diamond ring and profess your ever-lasting love? There are some subtle signs that can help you. First, you’re not chasing the future potential of the relationship, that is, you’re simply comfortable with her. Second, you need not impress her with things that you don’t have or skills that you lack. What you are is good enough. Third, you’ve had arguments before and it would always turn out fine the next day. In fact, you can remember one heated argument, but you can’t remember the reason. Fourth, everyday mundane things like walking to the coffee shop or a sunset stroll or waking up to a cereal breakfast becomes interesting. Lastly, you have the same values and priorities.

How to look stylishly professional

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:17:28 PM in Baume & Mercier (23)

Power dressing starts with confidence, the belief that you can achieve goals with the right strategy. Your corporate dress should reflect this confidence. Get a well-tailored suit that hugs your body contour, but it should not be too tight. This creates a smooth, suave style than wearing wide suits. For everyday look, wear an elegant plain dress shirt under the suit like two-ply broadcloth. You can accentuate this with a thin silk necktie, also in plain color. Make sure your suit, dress and tie have complementary colors. In fact, it’s best to stick to two colors as a base and an accent. Pair your outfit with a neatly polished European style loafer. To cap your power fashion wear a Baume & Mercier Classima dress watch in leather strap. Now that’s power.

The Tragedy of fling

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:15:36 PM in David Yurman (31)

I was in a singles bar armed with a suave blue blazer and a David Yurman timepiece. I was pretty confident of my appearance, quite a looker at 5’11’’ but not the celebrity-type handsome. I wear my fashion rather ruggedly formal, which my watch says a lot. While at the bar, I was eyeing this pretty girl, who I caught taking a couple of glances at me earlier. Encouraged I waited for the next chance she’d look my way so I can meet her glance. I was feigning coolness, but really I was nervous and excited inside. I couldn’t take off my mind the chance of sleeping with a pretty girl tonight. I was, after all, two stages away from it. So I thought. When she met my stare, I smiled and she waved her hand. I was ecstatic so I approached her, only to hear her say, “Can I have the menu, please?”

Best places to pop the question

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:14:18 PM in Christopher Designs (25)

So you’re ready to ask her hand for marriage. You’ve practiced the line and bought a really impressive Christopher Designs diamond ring. Now comes the tricky part where to pop the question. If you have the cash to splurge do it in one of the most romantic places: Rome’s Trevi Fountain or just about in any nice and quiet corner in the Eternal City. A beach location is also ideal for an engagement getaway. The White Beach of Boracay in the Philippines or Kuta Beach in Bali is a sure winner. You can also put adventure into it like heading off to hike Tulum or dive the Great Barrier Reef. Quaint villages are another sweet spot to get her Yes. Italy’s Amalfi Coast is the poster child of romantic small towns. Then again while in Italy, you can take her to a gondola ride in Venice and wait for that perfect moment.

German perfection in ultimately luxury

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:11:51 PM in Wellendorf (21)

Luxury jewelry brands breathe by its signature and Wellendorff is no different. The German jewelry signature has made a name for unique and stylish designs, notably its spinning rings, cold enamel and rope necklace. These are not just the product of a creative penchant, but the result of German engineering that made the styles exclusively Wellendorff.

Wellendorff goldsmiths are known to manufacture within a hundredth of a millimetre tolerance to achieve the smooth spin. Meantime, Wellendorff’s transparent cold enamel can follow the gold’s stretching allowing it to withstand extreme strain.

Tony’s Tissot

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:10:51 PM in Tissot (27)

He glides through the court armed with his smooth passes and precise court direction. Tony Parker is your typical point guard — he plays for the San Antonio Spurs — and he’s French.  He’s got the basketball skills, yes, and the coolness factor off the court. In fact, this French could easily pass for a model when donning suits, making him the perfect ambassador for Tissot, the luxury Swiss watch. As the official timekeeper of FIBA, Tissot shares the sports passion with Tony, who in turn, reflects the timepiece signature’s excellence in function and style. His energy drove him to win accolades for both the French national basketball team in 2005 Eurobasket and numerous NBA titles under his belt. Yes, he’s sleek and power on and off the court, much like his watch.

Néry’s viral skin dive video

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:08:16 PM in Ball (25)

Have you seen the recent viral video of French skin diver Guillaume Néry? The world record holder in free diving — he doesn’t have any breathing equipment or gear — dived into the world’s largest sinking hole at Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas. It was an exhilarating and tense diving; Néry walked into the edge of the underwater sinkhole first and, standing at the edge, plunged directly down to the dark, unfathomable bottom. On descent, he’d use the underwater cliff side to climb up, giving it a surreal slow motion Hollywood effect. He was gliding gracefully on the way up until he reached the surface. Néry, a Ball Watch ambassador, kept a precise self-breathing technique to last the dive, much like his watch works with accuracy to give him the exact moment on his way down and up the sinking hole.
Ball Watch is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.

The Uniqueness of diamonds

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:07:14 PM in Charles Krypell (30)

Diamonds are one of the strongest materials on earth. In fact, the word ‘diamond’ is derived from the Greek “adamas,” meaning unbreakable, untamed and unconquerable. This makes diamonds the perfect wedding jewelry like Charles Krypell to signify an indestructible marriage. Beyond the symbolism, diamonds can withstand scratches and pounding, making a diamond wedding ring practical since you’ll be wearing it forever. Furthermore, no two diamonds are similar. The signature may be the same, like Charles Krypell’s pink, blue and white diamond hues; but the actual facets are individually constructed by nature. However, diamonds can be benchmarked according to its carat weight, color, clarity and cut to allow experts to sort out the best stones from the rest. When you buy signature diamond jewelry like Charles Krypell, you’re buying into the few most luxurious diamonds around. 
Charles Krypell is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive.

How diamond jewelry is made

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:03:25 PM in A. Jaffe (25)

A diamond goes to a number of processes before it is transformed into an elegant jewelry ring like A. Jaffe. When you buy a diamond, it will be the oldest material you’ll own because it took millions of years to form them under intense heat. It all starts with the discovery. Your diamond is likely to have come from any of the mines in Africa, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Brazil, Canada, French Guiana, USA, Venezuela and Australia. It will be sorted out and graded before sending off to cutting centers. This is where a skilled cutter creates the multifacets of a diamond to create the most scintillation. From here, the diamond goes through bruting to grind the shape, and then polishing to create brilliance. Then it goes to the jeweler setter, who places the diamond or diamonds in the style prescribed by the jewelry maker. 
A. Jaffe is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.

Make your jewelry fashionable

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:02:06 PM in Slane (22)

Fashion jewelry can give you a sophisticated air or a disastrous look if you’re not careful. Here are some reminders on how to achieve the most out of your luxurious jewelry pieces. Choose colourful jewelry. Today’s trend leans on multicolored jewelry like Slane’s myriad necklace, ring, earring and bracelet collections set in neutral gold and silver. Likewise, opt for jewelry pieces that exude personality, not just opulence. Themes like animals, frog earrings, tribal styles and owl necklaces reflect the wearer’s specific tastes or likes. Another effective way to stand out while keeping a chic style is to copy the fashion trend from another decade. For example, vintage-inspired jewelry can give you a sixties appearance with a modern twist and highlight today’s trends like skinny jeans and peasant skirts.

Pearl 101

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:56:06 PM in Mikimoto (30)

Even if you already have the most impressive line of diamond rings, earrings and necklaces, you still need pearls as an essential jewelry. Luxury pearl jewelry necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets like Mikimoto exude an air of refinement unmatched by gemstones. But pearls are difficult to handle as a fashion accessory if you’re not familiar with it. Here are some starters. Collar pearl necklaces with two or three strands are very conservative and luxurious. They are reserved for the most formal events. A pearl choker is more casual and versatile and can go with a casual or formal outfit. A princess length pearl necklace is best for crew or high necklines, while a matinee length is perfect for business attire. Opera and rope pearl necklaces are very long strands that require a turtle-neck line to provide a contrast. It is elegant and sexy, ideal for formal romantic dates.
