Happy August, dear readers! This is the month where we truly sink into summer, letting it become as endless as possible—as if the structure of the calendar year was only a suggestion. Seriously, though, if we were in Europe we’d be vacationing already—far from home, making a home elsewhere for a short while. Those are the best trips—when you feel at home in a new, unknown place. Don’t you think that when you’re with the one you love, you’re at home wherever you are? We do.

Let summer, vacation, travel and escape inspire you. You’ve already found the one you love. Now it’s time to find the time, find the words, find the answer. You already know what it will be: YES. We have the perfect ring for you. This Vintage Round Brilliant Cut Platinum Set Diamond Engagement Ring will look so beautiful on the one you love.

This piece of Art Deco jewelry is set with a 2.53 carat Round Brilliant Cut Diamond and flanked by Baguette & Single cut diamonds. The platinum setting is all hand engraved and it dates back to the 1930′s. Always timeless, our Diamond Engagement Rings will lead you closer to the future you already have in mind. Come visit our Beverly Hills showroom or contact us for more information. Summer, like your love, is endless.

Mid-summer there is a lot going on. Lately most of us have been fixated on the World Cup 2014 games. Others have been on vacation, soaking up sun rays on sandy beaches all of the world. No doubt, work prevails, and as the weekend comes and goes, we grasp for every free minute. Through it all, it helps to have someone close who we can lean on and share our experience with.

Cuffs: The Right Stuff for Dad

Vintage Jade & Gold Cufflinks

He taught you how to ride a bike. You sat on his shoulders to see above the crowd. He sang you songs to help you sleep. You went cross-eyed when you tried on his over-sized glasses. He welcomed you into the world with strong, open arms. Dad, Father, Pops, Best Friend. This Sunday is Father’s Day! How will you show Dad how much you care? One day out of the year we have a chance to let Dad know how his love, tenderness, and wisdom helped to shape our lives. We are stronger because he helped to guide us and we are braver because he told us we could do anything. This Father’s Day, make sure to tell Dad how you love him and how you are grateful for his role in your life. Whether you take him to his favorite brunch spot in LA or to a Broadway show in NYC (did anyone catch the Tony Awards last night? Stellar performances!), you might want to shower him with a gift or two, like these Vintage Jade & Gold Cufflinks. They will look perfect with his suit and tie. Adding a touch of style, these cuffs are masculine and elegant—a casual statement spoken with sophistication and ease. This Sunday, Dad is the star. With a gift from Claude Morady Estate Jewelry, he will shine ever so bright.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

We fell in love with Audrey Hepburn as the free-spirited, warm-hearted NYC socialite Holly Golightly in the 1961 classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Based on the novella by Truman Capote (played so perfectly by the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman in the 2005 film “Capote“), “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” opens with the iconic scene in which Audrey Hepburn stares into the windows of Tiffany’s, with her breakfast in hand and looking perfectly elegant in her little black dress. We can only imagine what is going through her head as she gazes at the jewels behind the glass. We’ve seen many fictional characters drool over diamonds, but no one captures the essence of a woman’s desire for diamonds (and connection) quite like Holly Golightly.

Luckily, we feel pretty certain she feels the same as we do when we admire our beautiful Diamond Engagement Rings. Awe, excitement, wonder: these are the words that come to mind. Here is a beautiful Tiffany & Co. Diamond Engagement Ring we have available now on our site and at our Beverly Hills showroom. With the original box and certificate, this classic ring is fabricated in 18 KT white gold. Topped with a shimmering diamond, this ring will make you swoon. For all the Holly Golightly’s out there, this one is for you!

Holly Golightly articulates the healing power of Tiffany’s: “Well, when I get [in a bad mood] the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.” We couldn’t agree more!

May was a huge month. Still is! We had Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. How will June ever live up? Well there is definitely much that June brings—don’t forget about all the Dads out there and a big “Hello!” to Summer. Sunshine, beach, BBQ, travel, escape—summer lovin’. Yes, we’re looking forward to summer and, even though we like it hot, we also love a good cool down.

Let’s start now with this glistening Vintage Diamond and Gold Engagement Ring. Just like all of our Vintage Rings, this piece speaks to the timelessness of love. With a hand engraved hexagon 18 KT white gold setting, this ring is centered around style and grace. At first glance, you won’t be able to resist its stunning shape and refreshing sparkle. The perfect way to cool down as temperatures rise!

Visit our site or, better yet, stop by our Beverly Hills showroom for a better look. Whether you’re in Los Angeles or elsewhere, there’s always a chance for Claude Morady Estate Jewelry to bring a little shimmer to your day. Enjoy the rest of May!

Going Platinum

We’re a little bit excited today. Our favorite celebrity power music couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé announced their “On the Run” tour dates and tickets for Los Angeles & San Francisco shows went on sale this morning. We always love a good love story and their’s can’t be beat. Ever since their show-stopping performance of “Drunk in Love” at the Grammy Awards, we’ve been in awe of their star-power. From what we saw, they seem truly in love, devoted and full of admirable respect for one another. Whether they are Crazy in Love or Drunk in Love, we’re inspired by their obvious connection and commitment.

Both best-selling artists in the music industry, they’ve both sky-rocketed to Platinum status. Much like our shimmering collection of Engagement Rings, they are a symbol of strength, union, and power—shining bright like no other. This week we’re featuring this stunning Vintage Diamond Engagement Ring with a Platinum engraved setting. Circa 1920s, it’s almost one century old! We hope you’ll come to our Beverly Hills showroom to view this ring and many more like it. Let us inspire you when picking out a ring, as you always inspire us. After all, you don’t have to be a celebrity to Put A Ring On It!
