Pink is my favorite summer color. After a long day at the office or pool, there is nothing like a summer’s girl’s night out.  Pink is hot this year!  Mix and match rose gold and white diamonds and morganite gemstone jewelry.

Gatsby Deco Designs

HOT new jewelry trend!  The Great Gatsby is a soon to be released movie that features stunning jewels and costumes.  Director Baz Lermon takes a new spin on this 1920′s Scott Fitzgerald novel.

I can’t wait for this movie to come out, the trailers look amazing and it will surely be filled with lavish jewels and stunning clothes.  Entertaining yes, but I don’t think it will be as good as the 1974 original.

Tiffany & Co. on fith ave has a window collection of their art deco heirloom baulble Gatsby pieces.  Some where lent to the film production. Our favorite offering is the shimmering diamond and pearl headpiece that Carey Mulligan’s Daisy dons in the Gatsby movie. Sadly, this stunner will set you back $200,000, so we’ll just have to daydream about it, along with Leonardo DiCaprio.
