Yes, sweetie pie, it’s true. We’ve got a crush and can no longer resist this Antique Old Cut Diamond Platinum and Gold Engagement Ring.

Whatever it is, we can’t help but bat our lashes for this one! If you’re as lucky as we are, you’ve got a crush on the one you love.

Aquamarine Heat Wave in LA

In LA we are blessed with near-perfect weather. On average we’re a high of 72 on the daily kind of town. No complaints there. Even with such awesome year-round temps, we still get giddy when a heat wave comes to town. For the next week or so, we are looking at some temperatures in the high eighties, possibly nineties, sweeping through Los Angeles. Spring (with not-so-subtle hints of Summer) has definitely sprung in our hometown.

In light of the weather, the season, and just general warm and fuzzy feelings, we’re pleased to feature some stunning Spring pieces that will make you want to splash about in the sea. For example, today we’re showing off this Antique Aquamarine and Platinum Ring. Like many of our Engagement Rings, this piece will make you say yes more than once. We’ll be waiting out the week at our Beverly Hills showroom then this weekend we’ll hit the beach on Saturday and cheer on those participating the inspiring LA marathon on Sunday. Lots to cheer about!

Much love,

Claude Morady

Oscar Inspiration

Maybe it’s because we hail from Los Angeles or maybe it’s because we specialize in sparkly jewels, but we love Oscar Sunday. The red carpet looks, the winning speeches, the glitz and glamour. We can’t get enough of Awards season so it’s always sad when it comes to a close. Luckily we’re always up and running at our Beverly Hills showroom featuring enough diamonds and antique sparkle to make everyday a red carpet day. Winter in LA is no time to huddle inside, looking drab. We aim to please with some good old-fashioned bling. Visit our website for diamond engagement rings and more stunning pieces to add to your jewelry collection. Happy Monday + much love!

Yes, at Claude Morady we specialize in diamond engagement rings, antique jewelry, and some good old-fashioned laughter.

Last night we laughed our heads off while watching the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. Nothing beats Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue. Always on point, those two can ham it up anytime and we’re game. Happy to be an audience to such funny, comedic women.

December Blues

Natural Ceylon Blue Sapphire & Diamond Ring

Lovers, Jewelry Enthusiasts, Angelenos, Style Icons and everyone in between:

What can we say: we LOVE the holidays. Deliciously savory food, mulled wine, spiced sweet treats, festive cheer, celebratory parties, the union of families, the giving of gifts. We also love the colors and hues that accompany winter. Sure we LOVE Christmas stocking red and we LOVE Evergreen trees, but at Claude Morady we are suckers for blue. Partly because we know a good sapphire when we see it…especially when it’s surrounded by 14 round brilliant cut diamonds like our featured item today. This Natural No Heat blue Ceylon Sapphire ring will be the perfect topper to an already blissful holiday season.

Side note: while we’re all bracing for tomorrow’s winter storm in SoCal, now would be a perfect time to do some online browsing and shopping on our website. There’s no better way to distract from mudslides, messy gutters or leaky roofs. Visit our site for holiday shopping inspiration. It’s the ultimate gift guide. Enjoy!
