The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street was based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government. Leonardo DiCaprio depicts a suave, brilliant business man devouring life at an insatiable speed. The films itself was a staggering three hours of living the high-life to absolute debauchery. In it’s finer moments, the costumes and cast are beautifully touting the highest quality of, well, everything! We at Bel Air Jewelry were inspired to nudge the men out there to reach for classier attire. Check out our white gold sapphire diamond cufflinks, and don’t be afraid to let your inner class extend outward… just don’t go Belfort on us!

Blue Is The Color Of Winter

As Roman Payne states in his novel; “It is growing cold. Winter is putting footsteps in the meadow. What whiteness boasts that sun that comes into this wood! One would say milk-colored maidens are dancing on the petals of orchids. How coldly burns our sun! One would say its rays of light are shards of snow, one imagines the sun lives upon a snow crested peak on this day. One would say she is a woman who wears a gown of winter frost that blinds the eyes. Helplessness has weakened me. Wandering has wearied my legs.” This season let winter awaken your senses with Bel Air Jewelry’s Deep Blue Sapphire Sliced Necklace.

The Story With The Painting

Girl With a Pearl Earring tells the story of Griet, a 16-year-old Dutch girl who becomes a maid in the house of the painter Johannes Vermeer. Her calm and perceptive manner not only helps her in her household duties, but also attracts the painter’s attention. Vermeer slowly draws her into the world of his paintings.

On the verge of womanhood, Griet also contends with the growing attentions both from a local butcher and from Vermeer’s patron, the wealthy van Ruijven. And she has to find her way through this new and strange life outside the loving Protestant family she grew up in, now fragmented by accident and death.

As Griet becomes part of her master’s work, their growing intimacy spreads disruption and jealousy within the ordered household and even – as the scandal seeps out – ripples in the world beyond.

Is your love forbidden? Do you dream of being taken into a world of mischief and secret romance? Wear pearl earrings this winter by Bel Air Jewelry, and let the inner beauty of the muse within you shine.

Girl with a Pearl Earring

The painting Girl with a Pearl Earring is one of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s masterworks. It is now in the collection of the Mauritshuis gallery inThe Hague, but in 2013 has toured the United States with other works while the museum completes building work. After the most recent restoration of the painting in 1994, the subtle color scheme and the intimacy of the girl’s gaze toward the viewer have been greatly enhanced.

Tracy Chevalier wrote a historical novel, also entitled Girl with a Pearl Earring (1999), fictionalizing the circumstances of the painting’s creation. In the novel, Johannes Vermeer becomes close with a fictional servant named Griet, whom he hires as an assistant and has sit for him as a painting model while wearing his wife’s pearl earrings. The novel inspired the 2003 film that stars Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) as the girl with the pearl earring. Johansson was nominated for various awards including a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA. Do you look at your lover with the same longing this starlet captured in the film? Or is your passion as classic and demure as the pairing itself? Display your elegant beauty with a pair of pearl earrings this winter by Bel Air Jewelry. Remember, beauty may fade like cracks in oil, but a moment in love can last a lifetime.
