Inspiration Colors of Fall | On the Streets of New York November 22 2011, 0 Comments

What is more inspiring than nature itself?

Around every New York street corner, I see vibrant shades of orange right now.  It’s the color of autumn, windswept leaves of fall covering the grey ground with gold.And the amazing pumpkin and butternut squash soups on the restaurant specials boards!

I love working with “burnt orange” diamonds… they are untreated, natural and romantic. 

Natural orange diamonds are among the rarest diamonds in the world.  The most famous is known as the Pumpkin Diamond, which was worn by Halle Berry to the 2002 Oscars where she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Monster’s Ball, and was displayed as part of the Smithsonian's "The Splendor of Diamonds" exhibit.

The Collection that started it all… January 17 2011, 0 Comments

By now most people know that my jewelry is part influenced by tattoo and graffiti art, but I wanted to further explain why it’s so near and dear to my heart. As a musician first, I became known in my circle of friends for hosting some pretty killer karaoke parties. I’d transform a room in my home into an all out rock n roll party - complete with strobe lights, hair band wigs, and temporary tattoos. It was incredible, because I physically saw my friends transform into bonafide rockers once they “got into character.” Even my most shy and conservative friends became outgoing by putting on a skull tattoo! The great thing about temporary tattoos is just that…they’re temporary, no commitment! It got me thinking that everyone wants to be a rock star, and it doesn’t have to require ink. Jewelry, like a fake tattoo, can be put on and taken off. Thus…the Dangerous Collection was born. It’s like fake tattoos, but with diamonds and class. Rock on.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas... December 18 2010, 0 Comments

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
Not a wrapped gift was present, note even a blouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
But nothing was in them, they were completely bare.

The husbands were fretting, concerned in their beds,
While visions of angry wives danced in their heads.
And sister in her jammies, and I in my Yankees cap
Had just settled in for a long winter’s nap.

When out in West Village there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter!
Away to Greenwich Ave I flew like a flash,
Rang the doorbell at number 43 and threw up my sash.

When what to my hopeful eyes should appear,
But a vast selection of sparkly gifts; there’s nothing to fear!
Black diamonds, white diamonds, and fine metals galore
Santa himself must’ve created this store!

I phoned my father and gave him the news,
I found the perfect assortment to present to his muse.
With a wink and a smile I saw from the back,
Catherine Angiel was there to pick up the slack.

I chose a black diamond ring and was out in a hurry
To get it in under the tree before Mom awoke in a furry.
My dad was relieved and will sleep well tonight,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

A Decade of Black Diamonds Becomes Today's Fashion September 20 2010, 0 Comments

Ms. Catherine Angiel introduced Black Diamonds into her designs over a decade ago, truly impacting the fine-jewelry industry.  Creating a staple in today's fashion jewelry, it's incredible to watch a once created trend blossom into a world renowned fashion statement. Catherine takes great pride in her designs and as a part of the Catherine Angiel team we are proud to witness the trickle down effect of Black Diamonds onto the Red Carpet at the VMAS!

Please take the time to view the article below from The National Jeweler discussing the images of Black Fashion emerging into the Celebrity Fashion scene!

Article Written By Catherine Dayrit

Sep 13, 2010

Los Angeles—In typical MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) style, the fashions at last night's awards show leaned towards the over-the-top (meat dress, anyone?) but in jewelry, a handful of styles, including oversized earrings, blackened metals and stacked bangles, managed to stand out against an abundance of glitzy shift dresses and flamboyant frocks.

After a strong showing at the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, blackened metals and black diamonds continued to dazzle on the VMAs red carpet, where the on-trend designs were worn by the likes of "California Gurls" crooner Katy Perry, Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara and the evening's host, comedian Chelsea Handler.

Handler, who did a number of quick-changes during the show, took to the stage at one point in a black diamond and platinum cuff bracelet plus black and colorless earrings set in platinum, and a black, yellow and colorless diamond cocktail ring, all from designer Neil Lane. Perry, meanwhile, paired a barely there appliqué dress with a "Pave 3D Heart Ring" in blackened sterling silver from M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza, while Vergara glittered in over 500 carats of Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a blackened platinum cuff and platinum earrings, both with colorless and black diamonds, among other designs.

A fresh, edgy take on the usual white-on-white look of colorless diamonds set in white gold or platinum, other VMA attendees to take part in the trend included Twilight actress Ashley Greene and Lo Bosworth of MTV's recently ended reality series The Hills. Greene sported Lorraine Schwartz platinum earrings with black diamonds, plus a platinum bracelet with black diamonds and black sapphires. Bosworth, meanwhile, selected oxidized gold earrings from Bavna accented with colorless diamonds, paired with a Bavna rose-cut diamond circle ring.

Earrings and bracelet pairings, as worn by Greene, and earrings and cocktail ring pairings, as worn by Bosworth, were among the evening's most popular jewelry duets.

Pop star Perry, who sported the blackened sterling M.C.L. ring, also accessorized with rose-cut diamond earrings from Sutra, while in another of her on-stage looks, Handler wore Neil Lane diamond earrings plus a stack of diamond, gold and coral bracelets and bangles. Vergara piled on the jewelry, too, wearing not only the blackened platinum cuff bracelet and the earrings mentioned above, but also another platinum cuff, two platinum and diamond bracelets and a platinum and diamond dome ring to top it all off.

Bringing a flash of color, meanwhile, was Selena Gomez, who wore "Blue Mordore" crystal earrings and a cocktail ring from Baccarat's "Insomnight" collection.

Gomez's earrings for the evening leaned towards the demure in terms of their short drop style, as did the diamond Le Vian earrings worn Taylor Swift. The Hills star Stephanie Pratt also selected a more understated earring style, specifically diamond stud earrings from Le Vian, plus bangles and stackable rings from the brand. Many of the earrings spotted on the red carpet, however, were notable for their oversized style, such as the Amrapali rose-cut diamond drop earrings worn by actress Rosario Dawson. Other oversized earring styles to get major play were shoulder-grazing chandelier looks and hoop earrings, the latter worn by the likes of the Jersey Shore ladies, Easy A actress Emma Stone and Access Hollywood correspondent Maria Menounos.

Aside from all of the earrings, bracelets and rings in the spotlight, necklaces received a fair share of time on stage. During her performance with Eminem, R&B star Rihanna sported a long diamond chain and cross necklace from Neil Lane. Towards the end of the evening, a necklace worn by Lady Gaga, who swept the VMAs by winning eight awards, might have gotten much attention, too, but that's if viewers were able to get past Gaga's dress, chapeau and purse. As she scooped up her "Video of the Year" award in her third outfit of the evening, the pop star shocked in a get-up made of raw meat, which she accessorized with a blinged-out necklace, bracelets and a cocktail ring.

When it comes to ring styles, today’s young-adult “millennial” shoppers demonstrate a surprising preference for the traditional. Although some retailers say they are seeing some experimentation with colored gemstones and alternative metals like titanium and even stainless steel, the default choice is still a center-mounted diamond, with up to 90 percent of buyers opting for white gold settings. Growing demand from same-sex couples has generated greater interest in nontraditional offerings such as the ornately carved bands by Lithuanian designer Alex Sepkus (p. 80), says Matthew Rosenheim, president of Washington, D.C.’s Tiny Jewel Box. However, a significant portion of same-sex bridal shoppers do gravitate toward classic selections, notes Rosenheim.

What’s different about contemporary rings are the embellishments: Although the stones are smaller, they’re accented more frequently with smaller diamonds on the sides or around the center—a distinction jewelers say is a uniquely Gen-Y spin. According to JIRI stats, a mere 28 percent of rings today are solitaires. The vast majority are what Gassman calls  “something extra and different.”

“They want more detail in a smaller space,” says Brian Toone, president and CEO of the Jewelry Design Center in Spokane, Wash. “What we’re seeing has a solitaire or streamlined look, but when you look closer, there are more stones on the sides or detail work underneath to add that personal element.”
