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.

Ain’t Wristing Time No More

In an election, we all have a choice. Vote or don’t vote. This vote or that vote. Yes or no. It’s the same with holiday shopping. We can wait until the last minute, frantically running around with sweat dripping off our brow. We still make the purchase but is it chosen with love, consideration and care? Not usually, especially when you hand it to them unwrapped. Oh, we promise, there’s another choice. You can plan ahead. Start to think about your loved one now and meditate on the perfect gift for him or her. It’s early in November, yes, but with the World Series and the Mid-Term Elections behind us, where will we put our focus?

Jewels, of course! With beautiful wearable art all around, it’s hard to see anything else! When it comes to showering the one you love with something they will never forget, Claude Morady is here for you! Right now we are loving this Retro Aquamarine Two Tone Gold Bracelet. Reminiscent of a ring on your wrist, this bracelet wraps around you with love and unity. Perfect for any woman in your life whom you adore, this is the next piece to add to her ever-growing jewelry collection.

So what are you waiting for? Holiday shopping begins at Claude Morady. We are here for you. Whether you are looking for an engagement ring, a necklace, bracelet, earrings, be-jeweled accessories, or the ultimate bling, we have something for you. Even if you simply need some inspiration, come visit our Beverly Hills showroom. Los Angeles may be warm during the winter, but we sure know how to shine.

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.

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,

Claude Morady

Cuffs: The Right Stuff for Dad

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.

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!

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!

Diamonds in the Sky

Emerald Cut Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring

It’s been an exciting week in the sky. On Wednesday, it was reported that astronomers found a diamond engagement ring in space. Of course, it was a planetary nebula and a star, aligned in such a way that gave the appearance of a ring. Telescopes captured the image and, indeed, the sky was bejeweled.

The excitement doesn’t stop there. Tonight and tomorrow, there will be a lunar eclipse. On average this happens only twice a year—making it special, rare, and captivating. In fact, we find the occurrence quite romantic. It requires that perfect moment when the sun and the earth line-up in just a way to cast a dark shadow over the moon. In every case, the moon must be full and, in certain cases, the moon is immersed in a deep reddish orange glow. Perhaps this time around we’ll be lucky enough to see a ruby or a garnet in the sky. Check here for the best viewing opportunities.

Like sunsets and sunrises, this lunar eclipse is not-to-be-missed. This kind of poetic romance reminds us of the beautiful engagement rings in our jewelry collection, such as our Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Ring we have featured here. Set in Platinum, this Vintage design is accented with a single cut diamond in each side. Circa 1940s, this ring is elegant and delicate. Like a lunar eclipse, it’s one-of-a kind.

Happy Spring to all of the gems out there! ‘Tis season of re-birth, renewal, and reinvention. There is, however, one things that remains. With Spring we re-welcome April, the Month of the Diamond. Those born this month are no stranger to the brightly shining diamond as it is the official birthstone of April.  So treat yourself or a loved one by adding one of our Vintage Diamond Rings to your collection, such as the one featured here. This ring, circa 1930s, features hand engraved designs and an art deco platinum band. While April begins with the fool, there is no fooling around when it comes to the sparkle of the diamond.
