Summer at Claude Morady

Ceylon Sapphire & Baguette Diamond Ring
Vintage Inspired Silver Green Murano Glass Ring
Vintage Inspired Silver Green Murano Glass Ring

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!

December Blues

Natural Ceylon Blue Sapphire & Diamond Ring

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!

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.
