A Decade of Black Diamonds Becomes Today's Fashion September 20 2010 - catherineangiel, 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.

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.”

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."

U.S. Kimberley Process Web site launched May 24 2010 - catherineangiel, 0 Comments
April 30th 2010
The new Web site, USKPA.org, includes information on how to become a USKPA licensee authorized to use U.S. Kimberley Process (KP) certificates to export rough diamonds from the United States. It enables current licensees to manage their KP certificates in an efficient manner, to ensure compliance with appropriate U.S. legislation and regulations.
The Web site will facilitate U.S. Kimberley Process licensing, certificate issuance and record keeping for U.S. government compliance, making the process quicker and more efficient while reducing paperwork, the release states.
Gemological Science International (GSI), a New York-based grading laboratory, assisted in creating the Web site. GSI Chief Executive Officer Mark Gershburg said in the release that the Web site is an innovative step in the fight to keep conflict diamonds out of the trade.
"We believe that this Web site is the first of its kind in the world and may serve as a model of trade and government cooperation in the fight to eradicate conflict diamonds," he said.
Gershburg serves on the USKPA's board of directors along with Martin Hochbaum, managing director of the New York Diamond Dealers Club, and Cecilia Gardner, president and CEO of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee.
Based in New York, the USKPA is a not-for-profit trade association formed for the purpose of administering and controlling usage of U.S. Kimberley Process certificates for the export of rough diamonds from the United States. The USKPA is authorized by the U.S. government to provide U.S. Kimberley Process certificates to licensed entities.
