The Awesome Aldo Cipullo

Yes, it has been many many months since I've posted to this blog
Of course I've been busy,
not just with business, and the new which we launched a few months ago,
but with family life
Which is a really good thing

But so much has happened out there in the blogosphere
which I have been barely keeping up with
Pseu has launched an amazing new blog
Lisa has become engaged and is getting married soon
and both of these brilliant and hard working bloggers
kept up with their busy lives,
they've kept up with their regular posting
even guest posted for Already Pretty
here and here
Their perseverance and work ethic inspires me

I've actually been deleting old random posts
It is long process and I still have more than 1600 posts to edit
One of these days I will get to finishing this project

In the meantime
Here I am in all of my vintage Aldo Cipullo for Cartier glory

I've seen a lot of vintage estate jewelry over the years....and I mean A LOT
Honestly, I don't really get exited about it unless it is really special in terms of its uniqueness, design and provenance
Recently we purchased a group of items by the great designer for Cartier, Aldo Cipullo

Yes, that Aldo Cipullo, the man that created the Love bracelet and the Nail bracelet for Cartier
and yes, I am excited about them
You can read all about the amazing Aldo here on our Beladora blog
And here are a couple of his pieces

Big, bold, geometric and gold
What's not to love?

I can just imagine some 1970's disco babe wearing these items 
with her sexy Halston jumpsuit at Studio 54
can't you?

These pieces aren't for everyone, they are certainly for collectors
but we are so happy to be able to offer such an important collection of jewelry

After the last time I posted my image on this blog, I swore that I would never do it again
But this jewelry needs to be show being worn
Et voila

Inauguration Style - How To Wear Color In Winter

This photo of the First Lady and her daughters at the inauguration is fabulous.

The colors, including Michelle Obama's gloves in orchid, are just stunning.

And, on the topic of color
how amazing are these Lorraine Schwartz 80 carat emerald earrings
and 50 carat emerald ring worn by Beyonce?

Red Carpet Style at the Golden Globes

From the Golden Globes red carpet

big fat red carpet.....check
paparazzi everywhere....check
stunning actresses.....check
gorgeous gowns.....check
what was missing from this picture?

well, there wasn't much in the way of red carpet worthy jewelry.

Still, I loved the classic diamond cluster jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz worn by Sofia Vergara

While heavy on the carats, (100+  worth $8 million) her jewels were elegant, age appropriate,and complemented her entire look

don't you agree?

 But what was Jessica Alba doing wearing the 5.8 million dollar diamond necklace by Harry Winston?
While this necklace was amazing, I felt that it was a bit over the top for such a young and fresh faced beauty.
After wearing such an important piece to the Golden Globes...whatever is she going to wear to the Oscar's?
