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

Golden Globes for a Laugh

Still hunting around for New Year’s resolutions? How about this for a goal: Laugh More! It’s definitely hard to find humor lately especially given bleak news headlines and the stress of everyday life. However now we need it more than ever and that’s why we’re vowing to laugh more. 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.

Tell us, what makes you laugh?

We have a new favorite! Behold this Art Deco Platinum dome design Turquoise and Diamond Ring. We think it speaks for itself but in case you need any convincing we’ll share this small detail. It’s even more beautiful in person! If you’re in the Los Angeles area, come to our Beverly Hills showroom and take a peek. Circa 1930s, the hand engravings alone certify this piece as wearable art.

Diamonds from a Girl’s Best Friend

Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring
Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring
Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring

We’ve all seen it. Marilyn Monroe luxuriously shuffling between tuxedoed men. Singing the ultimate Diamond anthem in the film classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Making history in that pink dress as she meditates on the platonic love between a woman and her Diamonds:

“A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Sing it, girl.

Yes, “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” is possibly the greatest song in history about Diamonds. Re-watching that iconic musical number got us thinking about best friends. Not the kind who you gossip, braid hair, or go to the movies with. We’re talking about “the one.” That person who you found and chose to spend of your life with. This person, your best friend, stands (“stiff back or stiff knees”) above the rest. The full package, the whole story.

Just like we love Marilyn Monroe and movie musicals (we’re based in Los Angeles, we can’t help but be movie buffs), we love Diamond Engagement Rings. Today we chose to feature a ring we know Marilyn would have loved. It’s our Art Deco Old Cushion Cut Diamond Filigree Platinum Engagement Ring. The all-hand engraved filigree platinum ring features a 1.71 carats old Cushion cut diamond with a filigree setting further enhanced with eight single cut diamonds and two calibrated triangle cut Sapphires. Circa 1930′s, can you believe this beauty can be worn on the hand of your BFF?

So, how about it? Best friends forever.

Open for Diamonds

Vintage Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring

At Claude Morady, we love a good competition. Anyone watching the US Open knows what we’re talking about (Serena Williams vs…well, anyone). When it comes to giving the gift of jewelry, it’s anyone’s game. Rings? Bracelets? Necklaces? Brooches? Earrings? We know how hard the decision can be. There is, however, one gem that takes the cake. The diamond.

Yes, when it comes to the diamond there’s really no competition. Sparkling, classic, delicate. We imagine when it comes to buying any kind of gift, or proposing with an engagement ring, this is always the right choice.

This week we’re featuring this timeless Vintage Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring. One-of-a-kind in style, this art deco piece will look so beautiful as it shines on the hand of your love. Let’s just say, it will be a grand slam. Come visit us in Beverly Hills or, if you’re outside of the Los Angeles area, be in touch over the web.

At Claude Morady, we love unexpected beauty. The kind that strikes you when you least expect it. Something of a surprise, we are often set in our ways until we find pleasure in the unexpected and, all of a sudden, we are delighted by a unique spark we never thought we would be drawn to. Much like meeting “the one,” we often find love when we least expect it—when we were searching for someone else or, better yet, when we weren’t even looking in the first place. The same, of course, applies to jewelry!

Among our collection of stunning jewelry, we have a variety of rings that stand out as style statements but also would make the most unique, jaw-dropping Engagement Rings. We believe there is something for everyone and here in Los Angeles, nestled in a showroom in Beverly Hills, we are here to provide the styling and guidance you need to discover what is unique for you and for the one you love. That gray area between knowing what you like and not having a clue, is where we come in. Let us help you pick out the next piece to add to your collection or the engagement ring that will win the heart of the one you love.

We have a ring in mind that would be perfect for any occasion. The Vintage Medley Of Diamonds Platinum Ring, circa 1950s, is both classic and unique. At the center is a stunning Emerald Cut Diamond accented with two Marquise Cut and Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds. The design, though asymmetrical, makes perfect sense. Quite like the love you found, this ring is right—just as it is.
