Here is our idea of the treasures Venetian ships would have been carrying. Shown above are our 18k stacked diamond and snake bangles including a 17th century Venetian gold coin.
We wonder where this coin has traveled throughout its history?

I’ve been a part of a few direct sales / party plans.  Honestly,  I wasn’t looking for another business opportunity but I had been invited by a friend of mine to consider Lulu Avenue.  So I listened and I’m glad I did.  It’s just not another jewelry business opportunity.  It is a jewelry business that is as unique as you are.  Lulu Avenue has exclusive rights to offer Moissanite gems through a direct sales / party plan.

My first thought of course was . . . there are ground floor opportunities happening everyday, right?  What is this companies track record?  Will they disappear overnight?

Lulu Avenue is a part of the Charles and Colvard family.  Charles and Colvard has the exclusive rights and patents on manufacturing Moissanite and they have been doing it for over 12 years.

This isn’t just another business opportunity.  This is THE business opportunity you’ve been…

Test your diamonds.

How to test to see if your stones are safe in your jewelry.

Using a pin touch the edge of each stone and put pressure from bottom to top, if the stone moves it is loose,do not wear the piece.Make an appointment for your jeweler to tighten the stone or stones.

We at Lauren Jewelry will do this at no charge.Answer my blog or call (212) 9664260 for an a appointment

NYC Jewelry Review

March tends to be a popular time of the year for people to start looking for their engagement ring.The most popular shape is still the round brilliant, followed by the princess cut.

As has been the case for as long as i  can recall,the round stone is still the most expensive whey to go. You can expect to pay 15 to 20 percent more for a round stone of the same quality and color.

Just remember, you will pay more when purchased but you will also get more back if you ever want to upgrade your stone for any reason in the future. Depending on your budget it is best to buy a diamond that has been graded by the (GIA) or the Gemological Institute of America. The reason being is that thier standards are very exact and their stones will command a higher value.The second best would be the (EGL) of America.

If you chose to buy a diamond without papers, try to get a recommendation for a good jeweler in your area or feel free to contact me thru my blog or call (212)9664260. Lauren Jewelry has been in NYC for the past 33 years and have sold many (GIA )and other stones thru the years.We also hand make mountings to your specific needs and price points.Feel free to go to our web site at Lauren-
