Today we wanted to feature the designer Claire Prebble. She has created costumes for the Navi charactors in Avatar and her work has been sought after for a shoot with Kate Moss and requested for a Vogue Italia shoot. Her work is described as full body jewelry that is woven from sterling silver. Like Bel Air Jewelry, she has an eye for design and fashion. Her creations are fantastical and creative. We wanted to inspire our clients to be creative with the jewelry they select. Diamonds may be forever, but don’t be afraid to try a brilliant blue, or flaming yellow sapphire! Reach for the stars, and you just might hit the moon!

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.

Modern and Natural

When I think of an ocean breeze, a green forest, standing alone in the desert, or dancing in the rain; I don’t see flashy jewelry. I see me and the earth, I see raw looking stones and bare feet. I see elegance and beauty in simplicity. This new line by Bel Air Jewelry captures that essence. The women wearing it may be beautiful, but the stones themselves capture a raw organic kind of beauty in their shape and raw cuts.

Go Back In Time

R0014-2Wedding rings today are a sentiment of love, but no one can really say for sure when this age old tradition actually started. Some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago when sedges, rushes and reeds, growing alongside the well-known papyrus were twisted and braided into rings. But the circle was the symbol of eternity, with no beginning or end, not only to the Egyptians, but many other ancient cultures. The hole in the center of the ring also had significance. It wasn’t just considered a space, but rather a gateway, or door; leading to things and events both known and unknown. To give a woman a ring signifies never-ending and immortal love. Let your engagement ring from Bel Air Jewelry be a powerful symbol of all the joy and happiness to come. When you look into the infinity of your fiancé’s eyes, pick a ring that says forever with same furfur as the passion in your lover’s heart.

Star Light Star Bright

Jennifer Aniston showed off these shimmering beauties while attending the UK film premier of “The Bounty Hunter” at Vue West End in London, England. This new look has recently been made popular by red carpet attendees and debutants alike. But you don’t have to be famous to enjoy the beauty of white gold paired with diamonds, and it’s no mistake that Aniston displayed these darlings at this particular film. In the old west most law men wore stars to signify that they were the sheriff in that particular area. The metal star had five branches, with a point pointing upwards. It symbolized health, power, and especially divine protection from the sky. The film’s prominent theme of “a beauty breaking the law” was sarcastically hinted by Jennifer’s clever choice in jewelry. But she’s not the only one that can have fun with this classic symbol. Does your love break all the rules? Are you a rebel whose light shines like the sun? Let these earrings from Bel Air Jewelry inspire you to let go of the rules… and follow your heart!
