If you haven’t heard the big news, Catherine Angiel Studios is doing something very special this June. A portion of our earnings on all wedding bands this month will be going to aid the New York City Humane Society. For more information on this organization and other ways to help our furry friends, visit http://humanesociety.org.
All of our wedding bands have something uniquely special about them, but the Bliss Ring shown above particularly is a staff favorite. The rotation of round diamonds and marquise diamonds add interest to the elegance that this band offers. We recommend this piece for the person who wants something a little different, a little interesting, but has a lot of class. We also carry a similar and slightly smaller version called Baby Bliss.
You can check out the rest of the bands and more Catherine Angiel pieces at http://catherineangiel.com.
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.

Ms. Angiel's Famous 'Marinara & Shrimp' For Two <3 September 06 2010, 0 Comments
Marinara and Shrimp: For two
1/2 lb. of Penne
12 medium shrimp, shelled and cleaned
1 can of whole peeled tomatoes ( I like Muirs organic)
2 garlic cloves
crushed red pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
In a deep sauce pan, coat pan with oil.
Add onions and sauté until translucent.
Add garlic and heat a minute or so, don't brown.
Squash can of tomatoes in a bowl with your clean hand and add to pan.
Cover on high until it bubbles rapidly, stir and simmer covered for
another 15 minutes.
Add raw shrimp, bring sauce back to a boil for two minutes, and it’s done.
I assume you boiled your pasta water during and followed the
directions for cooking time?
If not do while cooking the marinara sauce : )
Drain pasta, mix in sauce and balance sauce to pasta so it’s not dry.
Top with freshly grated locetteli cheese.
'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.
