Turn Heads with Roberto Coin

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:23:33 PM in Roberto Coin (26)

Roberto Coin has been known in the luxury jewelry world as a genius. And his designs speak of him too in that manner and with those words. Roberto Coin, the man and the company, has been an innovator since 1977. One of his most memorable contributions was the pioneering of the use of three-color gold in 1978. 
Roberto Coin is a master of shapes made of precious metals and stones and how they adorn the human body. With forward-thinking design and artisanal craftsmanship, Roberto Coin has muddled the lines that separate timeless and modern designs. One thing that didn’t change though as Roberto Coin continuously reinvents himself to evolve the brand is that he places a hidden 0.3 carat ruby in every piece – ruby is known to bring luck. 
 
For Roberto Coin pieces that make heads turn and eyes pop out, visit Schwarzschild’s at Short Pump Town Center.

Pearl Passion

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:51:27 PM in Yvel (21)

Yvel, as big as it is now, has a somewhat modest beginning. One can say that it all started out on a mattress where the husband and wife team of Orna and Isaac Levy (Yvel is Levy spelled backwards) combined their passions and unique skills to create a beautiful pearl necklace. That moment was the Eureka moment and Yvel was born. It took the couple an initial investment of $2000 and of course hard work and devotion to their artistic vision of pearls. From there the duo went worldwide and from a two person team, the company grew to a design center manned by 120 people in the center of Jerusalem. From a husband and wife team, Yvel became a winner not just once but an impressively seven times as the ‘best in pearl design’ through the years.
