Guerlain Diamond Lipstick

The Guerlain Diamond Studded Lipstick

‘Diamonds are a girls best friend’

The Guerlain brand was established nearly 200 years ago in Paris, France, and is still one of the highest end manufactures of beauty products in the entiry world today. The hundreds of perfumes that Guerlain has created are the usual trademark of the company, but a lot has changed when Louis Vuitton bought out the company to give it a wider appeal in other markets. With over a dozen stores with the Guerlain name attached, lipstick is one of the hottest items for the brand.


An amazing way to mark 100 years of lipstick

Even they treat your lips vèry well, and their truely wonderful colors , a Guerlain lipstick is far from cheap with each tube usually selling for $50. The Diamond Lipstick is the cream of the crop with almost 200 diamonds on the tube, and being handmade of 18kt yellow gold with a price tag  of $62.000. If you want red lips that look like rubys , there are actually rubies coating the inner lining of the tube to better help you to get that look.

If you drop this kind of money, Guerlain will make the lipstick in whatever color you want, wich should be the standard for anything with this high of a price tag.

Bold cuffs take center stage.

Van Cleef & Arpels

As this summer statement jewelry continues to trend….

In a famous photo taken in 1977 at the Rainbow Room in Manhattan, the perennially stylish Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis can be seen arm-wrestling Muhammad Ali.  But it’s not the fashion icon’s toothy grin, or her off-the-shoulder gown, or her embellished earrings that stand out the most, it’s the hammered yellow gold Van Cleef & Arpels cuff on her wrist. The quintessential first lady so favored the piece of jewelry that she wore it throughout the 1970s and 1980s, igniting an unprecedented fervor for cuffs among fashion’s glitterati. It was not only Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that made the sales raise, also Princess Caroline of Monaco and other celebs did. When the Princess showed up with her Cartier Love Bracelet, sales went up…..

Today cuffs are making a comeback in a variety of shapes and unique materials. Sometimes simple, sometimes precious. Basic wide styles can be worn on their own to create a more tailored, minimalistic look for work, while those with an experimental bent can mix and match skinnier versions. Add some instant edge to an outfit by rocking a double wrap leather cuff with oversized rivets and studded hardware, or up the ante by donning multiple metal bands in alternating widths on each wrist.

What some friends of mine have with shoes, I’ve got t with watches and bracelets! I realy love my Bvlgari Alveare and Parentesi, but my Cartier Love bracelet is my daily wear, that I many times combine with one of my Rabinovich leather bracelets. I’ve got many of them! They are vèry affordable, and vèry stong! Taking a shower with my Albanu, is no problem at all! I’ve got one that’s over 40 years old, and its still as new! Taking a shower with a leather bracelet is not the advice you would give someone, but my Rabinovich bracelets are still doing great, after 2 years of showering. And that for that price!

In the pocket

In 1912, Jacqueline Hermès, a child at the time, received as a gift from her father an unusual pocket watch with a leather holder to be worn on the wrist. It was designed so the young horsewoman could ride without having to attach her watch to her clothing or slip it into her pocket. In particular, the leather strap was designed to snugly wrap around the watch for complete protection.

Turning back the clock, but with a modern twist, has become the trend of the luxury houses to woo discerning clients these days. In 2012, Hermès had launched  “In The Pocket”, based on the design of the watch received by Jacqueline Hermès in 1912 as a gift from her father. It was an unusual pocket watch with a leather holder to be worn on the wrist. The French maison of luxury goods has now issued a second piece in the series with a rose gold watch clad in an alligator exterior.

Hermes 2012 inthepocket2

A tribute to the first watch created by Hermes in 1912, a gift of its founder to his daugther Jacqueline Hermes. Here the 2012 Limited Edition of 24 pieces, in Palledium (Click photo to enlarge).

The rose gold case of the new In The Pocket watch contains a silver dial with baton-type hands that sweep over pared-down numerals. A small seconds subdial is located at 3 o’clock. Powered by an in-house H1837 automatic movement with a 50-hour power reserve, the watch’s oscillating weight is adorned with the brand’s signature “sprinkling of Hs” motif.


As with the original, the new watch is designed to be worn as a traditional pocket watch or a wristwatch, the latest limited edition (Click photo to enlarge).

The strap is composed of two longer and shorter sections: the plain strap end and the buckle strap end, hand crafted in the leather-making workshops of La Montre Hermès in Switzerland. These two parts are composed of three layers of leather: alligator; cow leather for sturdiness; and a Zermatt calfskin lining.

The latest 178-piece limited edition watch is also designed to be worn as a traditional pocket watch or a wristwatch in true Hermès style!
