In her own words from a broad to a dame this American cinema icon took Hollywood and history by storm. From her antics in social life to her fashionable appearances she is a woman who was not afraid to make history. Her legacy lies in her unique eye to select and pair jewelry, to act her heart out and to delight audiences worldwide. Furthermore her gracious behavior continues to influence women even now. She is part of the reason why jewelry pieces like these transcend time.

Jewelry may be there to adorn and accessorize but they truly are holders of memories in our opinion. It’s jewelry that continues on from the time of the Inca’s to the halls of Versailles to our golden age of Hollywood.
Emeralds are another incredible colorful gemstone that is very hard to find in the natural world. These deep green stones have made a name for themselves. When it comes to greens everyone knows the luxe, full bodied green of an emerald green. It’s a deep and concentrated shade that allows you to absolutely get lost in it. This green is a result of trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium. Emeralds are interestingly not one of the toughest of gemstones. Since they are a cyclosilicate in general they are rated as poor when it comes to toughness. So if you think of plush velvet when you see dark green emeralds you are not far off. As we said like rubies emeralds are extremely hard to find. These are found on another side of the globe though. Far from Asia emeralds are found far South in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Brazil and Colombia.
This 18 carat two tone diamond and emerald bracelet is created in a similar way to the ruby bracelet below. Both feature yellow gold prong settings holding the gems. This helps the color of the gemstone really shine. Also both have brilliant white round diamonds. These are intermittently placed between the gemstones. The oval cut emeralds flanked by round cut white diamonds. We only have one of these bracelets in stock and it features 1.23 carats of diamonds. As well as 6.79 carats of emeralds. It pairs lovely with similar colorful gemstone bracelets. Playing with mixing the colors gives a joyful and youthful touch. See below for more gemstone and diamond bracelets.
Next is a gorgeous ruby gemstone bracelet. This two tone masterpiece features one of the most striking gemstones around. From Queen Elizabeth’s crowns to Elizabeth Taylor’s well known necklace, drop earrings and ring set, rubies are emblematic. Elizabeth Taylor even released a perfume paying homage to this incredible combination. The aptly named “Diamonds and Rubies by Elizabeth Taylor” eau de toilette. Overall they are grand gemstones found primarily in Asia, where the color red heavily represents good luck. You can see a spectacle of red in Asia during the upcoming Chinese New Year celebrations, which are sure to take over the stage in Asia. Back to the rubies though, these are prevalent in Myanmar, Thailand, India, Pakistan and Nepal. They are extremely rare and quite difficult to extract from the Earth’s crust. Further, this only adds to their desirability and featured position in fine jewelry ever since by gone ages.
Mike Todd gave Elizabeth Taylor her set of impressive ruby earrings and necklace. What was missing from this combination in our opinion? The matching ruby and diamond bracelet. This 18 carat two tone gold bracelet with approximately 1.17 carats of round brilliant diamonds and approximately 7.59 carats of oval cut Ruby gemstones makes the synch. For a woman who wears her jewelry elegantly and enjoys the fine reminders of stunning game changers like Elizabeth Taylor to motivate them through their own breakthroughs this bracelet is ideal. It has a sturdy tongue in box clasp to keep it safely anchored around your wrist. Also it elegantly intersperses diamonds with the rubies for an additional shine. It helps exalt the deep yet bright red shades of the rubies. It also tones down the visual weight of the bracelet allowing for it to be worn alongside other bracelets featuring colorful gemstones.
Another, gorgeous gemstone sapphires. The bluest of the blue. A blue sapphire is the classic gemstone. It is the Victorian era favorite. A true classic. The dark blue shade is a royal and authoritative color in general. It commands attention and gains trust according to psychology. Why do you think we see so many politicians and leaders in blue ties? Anyways, blue sapphires are one of the classic colored gemstones. Further, these tend to have higher clarity than rubies. The finest blue sapphires tend to even outdo rarer stones at auctions. Speaking of auctions you did see the stunning blue sapphires in the auction of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry right? As with any true jewelry collector her collection had several blue sapphire pieces. Particularly ones paired with diamonds. The contrast with the dark blue is like the sea. White sea foam of breaking waves surrounding the blue depths of the sapphires.
Further, as part of America’s most important private jewelry collection they shine. Showcased alongside other brightly colored gemstones. Also paired with different cuts and carat sizes. These are complementary gemstones that stand their ground. Like the dark green emeralds, these blue gems allow you to absolutely sink in. Like a certain fine lady’s eternal blue eyes.
Sapphires are not only blue. You get rarer and gorgeous purple sapphires as well. These are the least well known sapphires of them all. Further these violet and lavender colored stones vary in shade as well. The purple sapphires do not need typical heat treatment. Blue, pink and other fancy sapphires do. This helps them show their best colors. However, purple sapphires are their true shade from the start. Purple sapphires are tough and durable. Now, this bracelet features medium size purple sapphires. As you can see the gemstones are larger than their blue counterparts. The bracelet style though is still quite similar. Set between each of the purple sapphires are diamonds. Also brilliant white round cut diamonds. The bracelet has approximately 1.52ctw of Round Brilliant White Diamonds. In terms of sapphires, the bracelet has approximately 15.50ctw of Purple Sapphire Gemstones. Also the clasp is tongue in box.
Elizabeth Taylor was known for her double eyelashes. These surrounded her gorgeous eyes. Said to be blue with a touch of violet. She received purple sapphires bracelets as gifts from friends. Then also purchased jewelry pieces for herself with them. The Dame of jewelry she loved color.
Finally pink sapphires. Some of the rarer sapphires. These require the regular heat treatment to shine bright pink. Like the pink panther diamond these are a shade of light bright pink. Also pink sapphires come from Madagascar. The African country is the leading extractor of pink sapphires. Also rare stones these are striking. Unlike any other gemstone shade. These light shades of pink marvel with white diamonds. Seemingly bouncing off each other. Diamonds and pink sapphires are a pair unlike any other. Surrounded in a diamond halo. Similar to the blue sapphire bracelet. This bracelet features approximately 3.67 carats round brilliant cut diamonds. Along with, approximately 4.57 carats pink sapphire gemstones. A 14 carat white gold this bracelet is a light colored gemstone jewelry piece. Further, the bright pink makes it stand out. Even among other exquisite colorful gemstones.
You can wear this bracelet on its own. Or stacked with other bracelets. However, a truly beautiful look is to wear it with a platinum or white gold watch. Ideally one with a textured or unique dial face. Such as mother of pearl.
