Musings of a CJEX buyer

The jewelry shows we attend are, in one word, overwhelming.  The convention center in Las Vegas is over 2 million square feet.  If my math is right, that’s 45 football fields full of jewelry.  And jewelry is small!  Each booth has hundreds if not thousands of glittering pieces of jewelry and there are thousands of booths.  How do we choose what to bring home to Kelowna &  Read our thoughts on these three pieces from a recent show:

Orange Sapphire & Diamond Ring from

58-131 Always on the hunt for something to “wow” me, I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this ring from Artistry.  These vibrant orange sapphires are tangerine meets glitter.  They sparkle like crazy!  I also loved how the two rows of diamonds weren’t symmetrical.  They are off center and whimsical.  I would wear this on my right hand ring finger, especially with nude or navy nails.  Even a black cherry color would make this pop…think Chanel’s Vamp.

Textured Drop Earrings from

8-20226 Every girl needs a pair of “go to” earrings.  The pair that go with everything, light & comfy & are the perfect blend of classic and funky.  These earrings come to us straight from Italy and we have a lust for the crinkled, rustic texture.  We envisioned these as more of an everyday can’t-get-enough-of-them rather than a special occasion.

Custom Diamond Ring from

68-51 The designer of this ring is by far one of the coolest older babes I have ever met.  Lilian is a tall, elegant woman who can only be described as an artist.  The really innovative thing about her designs is not only are they drop dead gorgeous but they are actually wearable.  You’ll notice that this robust ring (which Lilian herself wears on her left hand) is still slim between the fingers & square at the bottom which makes it ultra cushy & enjoyable to wear.  We love the sharp, crispness of the center diamond set into square prongs that won’t snag on your wardrobe.  Bravo Lil!
