Put a Ring On It: What type of bride are you? November 20 2015 - Catherine Angiel, 0 Comments
You've found that special person, the love of your life, the one you want to be with forever. You've likely scoured small jewelry stores, some "big box" jewelers, maybe even skimmed a few pawn shops looking for an engagement ring as unique and special as the person who'll be wearing it. You don't want something plain and traditional, a boring emblem of your love. You want something edgy, current. You want something different.
But you haven't found it. What are you doing wrong?
Likely, you've been hunting for the wrong thing.
Stop looking for a piece of jewelry that says "We're engaged" and find finger candy that cries "No one else like this on earth!"
That's the kind of ring Catherine Angiel designs.
Catherine Angiel is not only a NYC jewelry designer, but also an out-of-the-box thinker who isn't afraid to offer up something that makes a statement.
Too many engagement rings are focused merely on the cut and size of the stone. Bling is best, and bigger is better, right? Well, sure, that's nice, but size and sparkle aren't everything, especially in today's fashion-forward world.
Colored diamonds are emerging as one of the most exciting components in fashionable diamond jewelry, color has turned into a huge statement maker.
Diamonds come in a wide range of colors, from crystal clear to deep black, and Catherine Angiel has created a stunning black diamond engagement ring that's sure to make your beloved's eyes pop.
The edgy hue of the large rose cut diamond is beautifully contrasted with the paleness of the white gold band, making it a fitting companion to any occasion and with any wardrobe. Wearing this ring only amplifies the truth that black and white will never go out of style.
It's all in the band. Gone are the days of a simple, plain band! Today's fashionistas are about "pop", texture, and dimension in everything from home decor to clothing to--you guessed it--jewelry.
Enter the tattoo ring. That's right: a ring with a band inspired by a tribal weave tattoo. The diamond is pristine yet humble, weighing in at a dainty .75 carats, and is the sideshow to the nontraditional artistry of the band. With its ebbs and flows of white gold, this ring's band speaks volumes of the character of the person wearing it. It says, "I'm sophisticated, but unordinary; in vogue, but non-traditional; youthful, but not naive."
Browse the rest of Catherine Angiel's line of engagement and statement rings and find the perfect piece to tell that special person in your life, "I love the one and only, unique YOU".
NYC is hot and so are the jewelry trends June 10 2015 - Catherine Angiel, 0 Comments
What to wear this summer
With only eleven days left until the summer solstice (mark your calendars – it falls on June 21), it’s time to peel off the warm winter layers and to put on some hot summer jewelry. We’ve handpicked a few of our favorite summer selections to help you start your summer off the right way – in style.
Full finger rings aren’t for the faint of heart, but even the shyest of wallflowers will find herself shining in our champagne diamond full finger ring. The intricate, shield-style floral design paired with delicate, champagne-colored diamonds will have you ready to pop open a bottle of your favorite rosé and hit the beach.
Neither your jewelry nor your worries should weigh you down this summer, so choose light-but-bright pieces that allow for maximum movement (what edgy-chic chick isn’t ready to bust a move at the first signs of her favorite song?). Our diamond hoop earrings are the perfect complement to your halter-tops, short-shorts, or sundresses. No matter what adventures you find this summer, these hoops won’t cramp your style; they’ll perfect it.
Whether you’re queen of the beach volleyball court or princess of the pool, make this summer a royal flush – not a royal bust. Our gold crown stud earrings are perfect for dressing up your favorite pair of jeans on Friday afternoon or spicing up your little black dress on Saturday night (not to mention, they make the perfect golden pair with your golden summer tan!). Before long, Kate Middleton will be taking style tips from you.
It takes courage to brave the sky-high New York City summer temperatures; wear your nerve around your neck with our kanji courage symbol necklace. With a unique and intricate orange sapphire chain paired with an orange diamond encrusted pendant, you’ll be a fierce warrior of style all throughout the summer – and beyond.

Unique Minerals Celebrated June 20 2014 - Catherine Angiel, 0 Comments
All that glitters isn't always gold & who cares
Recently jewelry artist Catherine Angiel has been inspired by pyrite, an earth mineral that most people know as 'Fool's Gold'. Pyrite has been used to make jewelry for centuries, reaching the height of its popularity during the Victorian era. A mineral that evokes images of fire and warmth, pyrite literally comes from the Greek word for fire, Catherine found that it fit right in with her modern-vintage aesthetic. Aside from being known as 'Fool's Gold', pyrite has been called 'healer's gold' and is used as a gemstone for protection and promoting a happy state of mind.
Pyrite is perfect for those who are looking for something different to add to their jewelry box, while maintaining an overall glamorous feeling.

The Black Diamond Angiel June 12 2010 - catherineangiel, 0 Comments
Catherine Angiel, who truly put Black Diamonds on the map, was featured in Life & Style this past week because of the inspiration from the 5ct Black Diamond Big gives Carrie at the end of SATC2.
Black Diamonds are being more and more recognized. When is the last time that you saw somebody wearing a black diamond ring? It's truly a unique stone and gives more character to today's already impeccable designs.
However, Ms. Anigel has been using Black Diamonds in her designs for years; I'm happy to see that the rest of the fashion world is finally catching up!
Black diamond gets play in 'Sex and the City 2' - National Jeweler
New York--Spoiler alert! Sex and the City fans will remember that at the end of the 2008 film, Carrie Bradshaw got engaged with a diamond-encrusted shoe rather than a diamond-encrusted ring. While it seemed a fitting engagement for the die-hard fashionista, fans who might have been gunning to see Carrie get a ring will finally get their wish.
Back for another round in Sex and the City 2, which opened at the No. 2 spot at the box office this weekend, Carrie and her trio of best friends, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte, sport jewelry throughout, but the piece that's getting fans talking is a 5-carat diamond ring from designer Itay Malkin.
The hefty carat weight makes for a talking point of its own, but the real buzz factor is the diamond's hue. For fearless fashionista Carrie--who was ready to get married in the first film wearing a bright blue feather on her head--a crystal clear diamond ring just wouldn't do.
In the final scene, Carrie's longtime love, Big, presents her with a black diamond ring, explaining "because you are not like anyone else."
