Fashion treasures: Lizzie Fortunato Jewels

Lizzie Fortunato is a New York-based women’s accessories label founded by twin sisters Elizabeth and Kathryn Fortunato. Beside their main jewelry line, they've added leather goods since the launch of their fall-winter 2011 collection. Richly detailed and meticulously crafted these accessories mix reclaimed materials with precious stones and metals. The result is a unique look both fashion forward and bohemian - take the hand embroidered supple leather Ipad case for example. This young label has already gain success with features in prominent glossy magazines and design collaborations with fellow New York fashion brands Suno and VPL.

Diamonds are my new best friends

I admit that, until now, I did not have a very good opinion on diamond jewelry - I don't know why but I just always related them with a lack of taste, useless starlets (a.k.a. footballers' wives) and a cruel way of showing ones wealth (something like endangered species furs).

This was my impression until I stepped upon Apples of Gold Jewelry, an online seller specializing in gold jewelry, wedding rings, diamond rings and gemstone jewelry. What is great about this company, whose name derives from the Book of Proverbs, is its commitment for ethics, integrity and honesty in business, which is a rare thing when speaking about the luxury market in general, and about diamonds, in particular.
