Every woman needs a strand of….

 

You guessed it: Pearls- the birthstone of June and classic, timeless jewelry accessory. Whether dressing for an interview, a formal event, or simply accessorizing your favorite outfit, pearls are a staple jewelry piece. A piece that’s often overlooked, pearls have the power to transform an outfit, and we are HUGE fans of the Old Hollywood glam look.

When envisioning pearl jewelry, most people picture the traditional strand of white pearls worn by icons such as Coco Chanel and Grace Kelly. But the size, shape and color of pearls can vary greatly depending on where the pearl was grown. Below you will see images of both uniform strands (all pearls are approximately the same size and shape) and graduated strands (shape of the pearl will vary). To learn more about pearls, visit the American Gem Society’s website.

We suggest that if you don’t have a set of pearls- earrings, bracelet, necklace, etc.- that you head to the jewelry store nearest you (unless it doesn’t happen to be G. Thrapp Jewelers because who are we kidding.. we want you to shop here). At G. Thrapp Jewelers, there’s no shortage of pearl designer jewelry. Pearls are incorporated into the elaborate collections of Bebe&Tay, Yvel, Konstantino, Mizuki and more.

Top Picks & Stacking Tricks: Beverley K

 

 

Want bands that add something different to your look? Like the multiple band, stacked look? This is the blog for you. We present to you our Beverley K Top Picks & Stacking Tricks…

One of our favorite vintage inspired lines of engagement and wedding bands, Beverley K, will be making a big appearance at this Saturday’s bridal party. Our staff is in love with the collection because there is nothing else quite like it within the industry. A graceful femininity embraces the entire collection; from lacy, vintage filigree to elegant, modern design, Beverley K offers a variety of rich textures and finishes. This collection has something fitting for everyone’s personal style.

Whether you are looking to add some jazz to your engagement ring, start a stack for a different finger or on the right hand, or mix a variety of metals for an everyday look – this is the designer for you! We love to incorporate Beverley K to add a little mixed metal look when framing the engagement ring or stacking on the right hand. Nearly every band comes in white, yellow, rose gold and platinum, and some come with fun colorful stones. Interested to know what some of our favorite looks are? Check out some of the staff pics below:

What’s an Ear Cuff?

 

We’ve all heard of earrings and cuffs, but what in the world is an ear cuff? An ear cuff is best described as an earring that travels up or down the curve of the ear, and one thing is for sure… it’s a trend. It’s clear that the ear cuff trend is here to stay –  we’re seeing ear cuffs all over the red carpet this year on celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Sienna Miller, Demi Lovato, Vanessa Hudgens, Victoria Justice, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Connelly. Ear cuffs have been featured in magazines like Lucky, Glamour, Vogue and Cosmopolitan.

EarCuffCollage

It wasn’t long ago that we saw ear cuffs popping up on the runway and it’s clear that they are much more than a fad. “What’s the difference between a fad and a trend though?” you say.  Trends take a long time to burn out and they impact several different industries, whereas fads are here today and gone tomorrow and typically only affect a single industry. Clients have been coming into G. Thrapp Jewelers asking if we can show them a few styles for galas, black tie events and other occasions. Ear cuffs encompass many of this year’s jewelry trends: bigger and bolder looks, more colorful and exotic color combinations, as well as vintage and geometric looks.

Ear cuffs come in all shapes and sizes depending on what kind of look you are going for, they can be dainty or statement pieces. The best part is, they don’t all require pierced ears and they’re the perfect way to spice up your outfit for an upcoming cocktail party. Here are a few of the  most popular looks…

Since G. Thrapp Jewelers is always on the cusp (or cuff haha) of new trends, we HAD TO purchase at least one pair of ear cuffs during the Smart Show in Chicago. The pair we purchased were designed by Meira T, one of the designers we already feature at G. Thrapp Jewelers, and we are in LOVE with them. Take a look at our new ear cuffs Dana is modeling below:

Martin Flyer’s Bridal Party Preview

 

 

Since you’ll be browsing the largest selection of Martin Flyer inventory we’ll have in store this year at our Bridal Party on April 19th, we thought you might like to know some information about the brand, and of course, view some photos of their incredible engagement rings.

Martin Flyer opened its doors more than 65 years ago and is one of the most recognizable names in the jewelry industry today. Now based in a 10,000 square foot facility in Manhattan’s diamond district, the family business continues to carry out the Flyer tradition of providing customers with the highest quality products, competitive prices, and first class service.

Martin Flyer’s FlyerFit line was created in 2006. FlyerFit rings seek to eliminate “the dreaded gap” that exists between the engagement ring and the wedding band so the two rings fit together perfectly.

Martin Flyer engagement rings are broken down by five categories: Three Stone, Solitaire, Shared Prong, Micro Pave and Channel in order to simplify the buying process. Pick your favorite! There are images of all five categories below.

What’s Hot Now…

 

From now until our bridal party on April 19th, we are kicking engagement posts into high gear. We are obsessed with everything that is diamond and sparkly, and of course, trendy! G. Thrapp has a variety of colored diamonds, double halo settings, mixed metals, floral detailed, twisted bands and East-West setting engagement rings, all of which were named as The Knot’s “2014 Engagement Ring Trends”. We’ve compiled pictures of rings at G. Thrapp Jewelers that match the trends predicted by The Knot. Which trend do you like the best?

Colorful Diamonds are great for a woman that is really looking to make a unique statement with her engagement ring. G. Thrapp has sold several yellow diamonds and a few pink and blue.

ColorDiamondCollage

Double Halo engagement settings are popular because they add a significant amount of sparkle and they make the diamond look even larger.

DoubleHaloCollage

Mixed-Metals are really trendy in the jewelry industry so it is no surprise that people are starting to purchase mixed-metal engagement rings. These Beverley K Collection bands come together to make a flawless stacked look. We love these rings because by combining two metals (namely gold and silver) you never have to worry about your ring matching your other jewelry!

BeverleyKBandsCollage

Twisted Bands are a nice way to add a touch of whimsical femininity to an engagement ring, and the soft lines are a great added detail.

Floral Detailed engagement rings are perfect for the woman that wants to throw the traditional setting to the wind. They are very romantic and typically add a touch of femininity to a vintage style ring. As you can see, they are also VERY unique.

East-West Settings actually make the diamond appear larger – this is becoming popular for marquise, ovals and emeralds cut diamonds. G. Thrapp Jewelers has custom designed several east-west rings, including the ring pictured below.
