It's been a while since the last post, so I thought what better to write about than things that sparkle!? It's become more and more obvious (especially to those of higher education) that the world is a better place when everything sparkles...or maybe it's just me.
Thursday night and I had no plans! Realizing that everyone was already tied up with other obligations I came across a very comforting event (set up). If you ever feel lonely and you need someone, there's no place like Birks at The Core; after all they do say "Diamonds are a girl's best friend". Diamonds are one of the many things they do not fall short of at this high-end retailer.
Tonight the team at Birks shut down early to put together a beautiful presentation for the launch of their Kwiat boutique. Kwiat, a family owned company since 1907 wich has been passed down through five generations focuses on the sheer comfort along with the most impeccable quality of their timeless pieces. These jewels are more than just a one-time statement, they're an investment, a family heirloom that will be passed down for decades and decades to come.
For the event tonight, Birks brought in a number of jaw-dropping looks from the Kwiat collection. Among the showcases were exclusive previews of the collection designed for Hollywood celebrities including A-Lister's: Natalie Portman, Megan Fox, and Carrie Underwood.
My favourite earrings, (ahem..Valentine's Day gift..ahem)
A hundred years in the making..for every decade Kwiat has been, a specialty piece (shown above) has been designed.
My FAVOURITE piece of the whole collection!
Circa 1970; this 4.51 carat orange sapphire ring is set in 18k yellow gold and embedded with 11.65 carats of diamonds. What pretty penny will it take to be the proud mother of this diamond ring? Only $60,000 ;)
The way these diamonds just rest against your skin is remarkable! It's like wearing silk when your body temperature is perfect - not too hot, not too cold.
