How Does Mikimoto Create its Perfect Pearls?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:40:50 PM in Mikimoto (30)

Creating pearls combines the delicate nurturing of the natural oyster bed and the painstaking craftsmanship of the pearl jeweler. Mikimoto perfected the process of prodding the oyster to secret thousands of layers of nacre by introducing a nucleus. The nacre, which protects the oyster from the foreign irritant, forms the pearl. In Mikimoto's process, the pearls are formed with unblemished natural roundness. The pearl jeweler then takes the pearls, polish them, and sets them using classical and trendy styles that the signature is known for. Among others, Mikimoto pearl jewelry features multi-layered or multi-colored strands, different clasp styles, and colored stones. Each jewelry piece is a masterpiece by both nature and Mikimoto artists, guided by their attention to detail and passion for creating the best pearls.
Mikimoto is available at Schwarzschild's at Short Pump Town Center.

The Right Diamond Ring For You

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:00:00 AM in Martin Flyer (24)

When choosing which diamond set is for you, the rule of thumb is it should match your personality. Forget about following today's trend or copying what celebrities do; looking at the your wedding album years from now will make you cringe to see yourself wearing an already outdated ring. Your safe bet is to go for the time-honored settings and this means you have five choices, as explained in the Martin Flyer site. First, the solitaire is the most traditional set with a single stone at the center. Second, the three-stone features a big diamond between two smaller stones. It is the fancier version of the solitaire. Third, the channel shows small diamonds encrusted along a crevice in the band. It is elegant and sturdy. Fourth,  the micro pave is a center diamond surrounded by small diamonds that gives it an air of antiquity. Lastly, shared prong sets the diamond on metal prongs to expose more facets for greater brilliance.

The Memoire Moment

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:00:00 AM in Memoire (23)

When a man offers a Mémoire as an engagement ring, it is a hint to the woman that he is committed for life. A Mémoire makes the moment more special with its fine line of diamond rings and elegant perfection. The second he opens the box to reveal the Mémoire inside, instantly, the dazzling light that comes from the diamond engages the woman's eyes. She cannot be faulted for temporarily forgetting the kneeling man in front of her and, instead, her mind is transfixed in that luxurious piece in the box. It is exactly the man's plan that by giving a Mémoire, he knows that she will be impressed. Each Mémoire ring is set in the signature mounting perfected by master craftsmen in Switzerland and parts of Europe.
Mémoire is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive.
