Summer at Claude Morady

There’s so much to celebrate we can barely keep up! Sunday was Father’s Day which meant we got to spend time with our families in honor of Dad. It also happened to be the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year and that which marks the first day of summer. From now on, the sky will be lighter later and the will set long after dinner. We love this season because everything is brighter, happier, and sunnier. Even our featured, signature jewelry pieces have that special spring in their step…or shall we say “summer” in the step.

Above, is a ring like no other! This Vintage Inspired Silver Green Murano Glass Ring is like wearing a piece of art on your hand. Perfect for summer, it reminds us to relax and take a vacation. Venice, Italy anyone?!

Below we have our featured Engagement Ring, an Antique Old European Cut Diamond Gold Ring. This piece is golden in nature, symbolizing longevity, luxury, and love. During these long days and dreamy nights, we can’t think of a better way to POP THE QUESTION. If Summer is for loving, then this ring is for YOU!

Finally, happy summer indeed! Sapphire is stunning year round and we are continually stunned by this wow-factor Ceylon Sapphire and Baguette Diamond Ring. Like jumping in a deep blue crystal sea, this ring has us pushing past our limits. Take a chance, dive in, fall in love.

We can’t wait to see you and help you chose the style that’s right for you!

Did you remember to accessorize? Okay, we know what you’re thinking. “Claude Morady, show us some Engagement Rings, some Diamonds, some bling!” Of course, we aim to please, however we have so much to our collection that we want to share with you. Not only do we specialize in rings galore (specifically, ahem, the type intended for…well, your intended) but we have a treasure trove of jewels just waiting to be added to your collection. Between rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches and more, we have a little something for everybody. Today, we found something that’s perfect for you…especially that part of you that wants to slow down, re-charge and remember the beautiful things in life.

These days, we find ourselves often consumed by technology, glued to our phones, and transfixed by screens. By now, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are all words in our daily Lexicon. When was the last time you held an actual photograph (4×6, Polaroid, whatever) in your hand? Well, how would you like to hold that image close to your heart? Behold this Antique Enamel and Diamond Locket, featuring a 6-point star design accented with Rose cut Diamonds. On the back, you will find the initials “CG” hand engraved (don’t worry, it doesn’t stand for “Computer Graphic”). The locket hangs from a gold link chain and dates back to the 1900s.

Let this piece inspire the old-fashioned part of you that’s ready to put down the phone, print an actual photograph, and wear it around your neck. Thoughtful, stylish, and beautiful. It’s what we love…and what we hope you’ll love too!

How is it possible that Labor Day is almost upon us? Alas summer must come to an end as we take our last vacation, go back to school and put our bathing suits in storage. However we’re not there quite yet. Of course, the “there” is September which brings its own string of magic: the beginning of fall, the harvest, new beginnings, and the turning of leaves. Perhaps there is a special someone in your life who has a birthday in September. If so, they are lucky enough to claim the Sapphire as their birthstone. This Sapphire and Diamond Dome Ring would be the perfect gift for them.

Consider showering your loved one with this stunning piece of jewelry which boasts 22 rose cut diamonds and 36 round cut blue sapphires. Circa 1950s this gold and silver ring is timeless and can easily pass as an Engagement Ring. Don’t hesitate! This ring will wow, pop, and amaze. You might kiss your suntan goodbye, but we see a lifetime of golden, shining love ahead of you with this ring in your collection. Visit our showroom or contact us for info. Happy end of summer!

Love,

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!
