Because Who Doesn’t Love Customizable Jewelry…

A few weeks ago a fellow fashionista told me about this “awesome” online store that sells jewelry.  When she first started explaining what the company sold and what they were all about my first reaction was “So what? There are tons of stores that sell high-end jewelry on the Internet, this is 2015, ya know…”  As skeptical as I was though, I kept listening and learning more about the company.  The more she told me about the store and their pieces and the endless options that come with shopping there, the more intrigued I became.

From there, I kept talking to her and learned that everything the company sells is completely, 100% customizable.  They have the standard pieces, but there are tons of additional options available for each of those.  So, say you find a diamond bracelet that you love, but you already have a similar one. You would like the same bracelet with black diamonds (or any other stone; I am just partial to black!), but you don’t see that available on the site.  What do you do? You order that diamond bracelet, and in the customization options you specify that you would like black diamonds rather than the traditional white diamonds.  Easy as that!

After learning all of that initial information, I decided that it was time to check this out for myself. I went the Anjolee’s website and from there I was a goner.  As I looked from page to page and saw all the different amazing pieces they had and the vast number of options that are available for anything and everything they sell, I was in love! I decided I just had to have something from Anjolee (you know how that goes, I needed it!)

Now, I would tell a little white lie and say that I found a bracelet that I loved, ordered and paid for it, and a few weeks later I received it in the mail.  But, since when have I ever lied to you beauties? Well, I don’t plan on starting now, so…

Anjolee Tennis Bracelet Paired With Two Others

There are just so many things that can be done with this bracelet! I love the looked of stacked bracelets, so I pair my bracelet from Anjolee with tons of different things all the time, but this combo is one of my favorites (second only to the one below!). It goes with almost anything!

After expressing how much I loved the site and all that they offered, the amazing girl who told me about the store offered to send me a product of my choice! Someone who knows me all too well (& knows that 90% of my wardrobe/outfits consist of black) got me an amazing diamond tennis bracelet for Christmas (black and white), and I wear it all the time.  So naturally, when I was looking at the assortment of diamond bracelet designs on Anjolee’s website, the all-diamond bracelet immediately caught my eye and I knew I just had to have it… I mean they would just look awesome together, right?!  But anyway, getting back on track… When she told me I could choose an item that I liked, I obviously knew right away what I wanted.

Anjolee Diamond Bracelet And Black And White Diamond Bracelet Pair

My diamond tennis bracelet from Anjolee paired with my black and white diamond bracelet. Since black is a staple in my wardrobe and I wear it almost every day, I wear them together all the time and get tons of compliments every time!

So basically, long story short: Anjolee is an awesome online store that allows you to choose from a ton of pieces and customize them pretty much any way you could imagine.  I got this amazing bracelet that I wear all the time, and I am absolutely in love.  Needless to say, I will definitely be a repeat customer of the store (Well, provided I can afford it anyway; girlfriend is on a budget these days so I can move out of my parents’ house sometime this lifetime… Being an adult sucks! PS – I know you’re reading, so I love you, mama; you know you’re the best roomie ever!).

Check out Anjolee and all they have to offer here, and let me know what you think! What is your favorite piece? Is there something you love and you could see yourself customizing to fit with an outfit or ensemble of jewels that you already have? I can’t wait to hear what you lovelies have to say about it (I can almost promise you will not be disappointed with what you find, I know I certainly wasn’t…)!

I hope y’all have a fantastic day! And wait, don’t forget to check out their website, you’re going to love it!

Antwerp, Belgium: Diamond Capital Of The World

Antwerp Diamond Center Last week we took a class field trip to the diamond district in Antwerp.  Who knew that Antwerp, Belgium was the diamond capital of the world?! I certainly didn’t until I got here! However, 80% of the world’s uncut and unpolished diamonds go through Antwerp, and at least 50% of the worlds finished diamonds go through Antwerp.  So, when you buy a diamond, there is an extremely high chance that it has been in Antwerp at some point!

We went in one of the 4 polishing and cutting facilities, where we met the man who is in charge of all the operations of the facility.  All of the polishers have to report to him and get approval from him before they can be done with their diamond.  This company cuts and polishes all of the diamonds that are sold by Tiffany & Co!! I thought that was one of the coolest things ever!

Then we went to the open room where a lot of the diamond trading and buying/selling takes place.  The diamond industry is dominated by the Jewish community in Antwerp, and when you enter the room, it was Diamond Cutting and Polishing full of their heritage and culture! It was actually really interesting and neat to be able to see. We were not able to take any pictures inside the trading room because it is top secret and extremely private.  (Apparently, it was a huge deal for them to let us go in there!)

I learned a lot about diamonds and had no idea how much really went into the trading, buying, designing, cutting, and polishing of the diamonds! I also had no idea that 80% of the natural diamonds found in the world are used for industrial purposes, rather than jewelry that makes up only 20%!  Diamond powder is used for a ton of things that you would never guess it could be used for since it is such a hard stone.

All in all, I think this was one of my favorite field trips we have been on as a class! It was really interesting and I think I learned the most and took the more from this one than any of the others!

XOXO Kristen
