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
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.

'Chasing the dragon with jewelry designer Catherine Angiel' July 12 2010, 0 Comments
Dragons, gothic crosses, skulls and the classic arrowed heart that reads “mom”, if you think this is a description of artwork on the wall of a NYC tattoo parlor you’re mistaken. I just walked into Catherine Angiel, a Greenwich Avenue jewelry store located in the West Village.
I’ve always felt tattoos forward implications of danger and mystery onto their owner. Yet, making a lifelong commitment to a particular design is dreadfully disconcerting. (That, and there’s always my mother’s voice in the back of my head warning how it will look when I’m eighty with sagging skin) I conquered my fear of tattoo commitment at Catherine Angiel. Twirling around in front of the store’s mirror with a white diamond dragon pendant shimmering around my neck, I felt like a rock star and I decided that I’d finally found a “tattoo” with which I could form an allegiance.
Now for most of us, a diamond encrusted pendant is not an impulse buy. However, until one can save for the real McCoy, Catherine Angiel also offers silver versions without diamonds that won’t break the bank. You have to be buzzed into the store, which can be a little intimidating, but once inside the music is thumping and the casual atmosphere makes you feel completely comfortable. The store also offers engagement rings and slightly more conservative jewelry designs if the rock and roll experience of her tattoo inspired collection is not for you.

When thinking about high-end jewelry, what comes to mind? Tiffany, Cartier, Choppard and Bvglari are just a few names that many consider to be the classicists of fine jewelry. For decades, New Yorkers have strolled the windows of Fifth Avenue, dreaming of the day they can own a piece of this luxury. What is strange, however, is that most of the recognizable names in this luxurious jewelry industry belong to men. Then along came Catherine Angiel, who did not just take down the walls of fine jewelry design, she busted through them with a sledgehammer.
Angiel isn’t you typical jewelry designer. While she was at the forefront of female jewelry designers, she didn’t attend design school, her pieces don’t retail for outrageous prices and her work experience includes drum solos, as her previous career was a drummer in a Rock 'n' Roll band. As one thing led to another in inspiration began to take control and before she knew it her love of music turned into a profitable design business.
“I’m really inspired by what evokes emotions in me, which is love, romance, music – and that’s how I get my ideas. I can be listening to a song and all of the sudden it will inspire me to create something, hence the "Dangerous" Collection, which is really Rock 'n' Roll inspired.” While music has had the most obvious impact on her opulent creations, the people in Catherine’s life have inspired her as well. “Love is also a fantastic Muse. I’m really inspired by my partner Martha – just her style and the way she puts herself together will give me some ideas.”
Angiel has created five unique collections - Dangerous, Androgyny, Renegade, Delicate and Glam – each evoking Catherine’s fun yet sophisticated spirit. Using distinctive elements and unconventional materials, Angiel creates jewelry bursting with personality, yet remains subtle enough for the red carpet and the mom pushing the baby carriage down the street. “I love working with unusual stones. Whether its black diamonds, or gray diamonds, I’m really inspired by things that are unusual yet can be brought into a classic type of design.” While her pieces might be considered to be dark, they are the perfect combination of a hard attitude and a soft soul.
Angiel’s designs are made for a wide array for clientele, and many times she works with her clients to make sure what they wear is exactly what they want, customizing pieces to any specific need. “I design for a cross between Audrey Hepburn and Angelina Jolie. To me, those are powerful women in their own right, one being more demure, the other being out there and more edgy, but I still get that feminine, delicate, yet sexy twist.”
Angiel, like her clients, is a strong woman with visions of success. Celebrities like Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Olsen, Sandra Bullock, Rhianna, Parker Posie, Mary Louise Parker, Rosario Dawson, The Pussycat Dolls and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been seen rocking pieces from Angiel’s collections.
One of the most important lessons Angiel has learned over the years however, is that often times the vision of success means remaining true to one’s self. “I know I have to do what’s in my heart, and I have to design what I’m feeling. It has to be less about ‘What does the client want?’ because when I design what I think the client is going to want and I don’t feel it, it’s the ring that doesn’t sell.” It is with this attitude that Angiel is seeing plenty of sales and noticeable press.
Of the highlights of her career, Angiel mentions the independent film The Guitar, in which her jewelry was exclusively used as a definitive element in the story telling of the movie. “(The producer) felt that our pieces really matched what the actress was going though in the movie. It worked in unison... and was a great match for the movie. It was truly an honor.”
While it seems that Angiel is well on her way to conquering women’s jewelry, her next move is taking on the men’s side. “There was a void for jewelry for men. It was either something plain or something vile. Men would love jewelry, if it were cool. Jewelry is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be expressive.” And expressive it is–her lighting bolt cuff links and cross necklaces will add a touch of edge to any outfit, with no motorcycle required. With the men’s collection already in motion, Angiel hopes to one day push the envelopes even further. “I love designing homes and gardens. I’m an artist and my pallet choices are precious stones and unusual metals, but to me art is everywhere. Anything that follows creation I would love to push my brand into.” If her boutique on Greenwich Avenue is any indication of her interior design capabilities, she will create some awesome places to call home.
In every ring, necklace and bracelet Angiel produces, her femininity with a punk edge shines through, providing clients with an individual sense of “something different and fresh... without any constraints.” While she might not have the brand name status of other designers in her genre, her pieces hold a name for them selves, and could help you build a name too. Angiel’s something shiny might not come in a little blue box, but it will get you some big attention.
