Collections take deep inspiration from concepts mostly from music and also, the brand's heritage. One collection that is from the latter is the Noemia. This is a poetic and mysterious name that recalls the family dimension of Raymond Weil. This name takes inspiration from the first name of the founder's granddaughter. Also, it was created in her image, in her innocence and delicateness while being mature and extremely feminine. This too is a reflection of the modern woman while preserving ideal and traditional values. The piece has a classic character pleasing the eye with bright white mother-of-pearl dial and accented by full-cut diamonds in its hours. The pieces blue dome on the crown finishes this already classic character with more class.

Full or solo pearl necklace?

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (45)

Wearing pearl jewelry requires a subtle art that takes time to master. Although pearls are great with neutral colored dresses, they can also go well with select stark colors like blood red and royal blue. However, other red and blue hues like rose red and sky blue can subdue the elegance of pearls. Moreover, full pearl necklaces are just as sophisticated as a single pearl piece. While it depends on your preference when to wear a full or solo pearl necklace, there's a general guide to follow so you don't fall for a tacky look. Full pearls look nice with high neckline or collar, while solo or necklaces with a few pearls look great with low neckline. For full flexibility, Mikimoto's Pearls in Motion lets you adjust the pearls along the 18k white gold chain to create either a full or solo necklace.
Mikimoto is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Bohemian luxury

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:00:00 AM in Juliska (36)

Luxury dinnerware can be fun and bohemian with Juliska. The luxury home brand was started by Capucine and David Gooding in 2001 with a display of forty hip glasses. The company has since expanded to include  stoneware collections that feature clean lines and seamless surface, but it maintains the “perfect imperfect” signature. In fact, Capucine lends her free spirited artistry to a number of Juliska collections. Flowers bloom unabashedly, while butterflies circle around vines in a colorful play of happiness. Then there's the Firenze's feathery blast reminiscent of psychedelic imaginings. Likewise, Juliska keeps the earthy undertones of its ceramic materials, which create a romantic, if not nostalgic, air. Whether you are hosting important clients or having a fun cocktail night with friends at home, the Juliska collections are perfect for the task.
Juliska is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.
