Third dimension in jewelry making

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:15:00 AM in Wellendorf (2)

Inspired by Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, whose enchanting belt was believed to make her compelling, Wellendorff created its prestigious Golden Belt for that added attraction and possibly irresistible charm for present-day wearers. Company managing director Christoph Wellendorff says that the intricate procedure to produce this exciting piece is actually Wellendorff’s innovation of contributing a third dimension in jewelry making—“feel”—after design and value. A patented, exceptional method is used to create the silky-smooth feel of this alluring 33-inch 18k golden belt, even without looking at it. The procedure involves two expert goldsmiths working with four miles of gold filament, where one does the weaving, while the other continuously disentangling the 40 gold threads that compose the whole belt. The outcome? An astonishing thing of beauty that is as smooth as silk.
Wellendorff is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Handmade: always the better way

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in William Yeoward (5)

In today's 3-D printing and other highly sophisticated technologies, hand-made products are becoming more and more a thing of the past. The belief that handmade products are more superior compared to machine-made ones will always prove to be true in many other aspects. First, no two handmade things are completely identical, thus every product, even those within the same category or collection, is never the same. The master-level skill used to create every product, coupled by the slight disparities that are inevitable, result in a distinct outcome. Considering the substantial time and effort placed in creating handmade products, they usually last much longer and work better over the years. Just like the William Yeoward Country collection—astoundingly designed glassware pieces, which are all handmade to be more durable, more beautiful and stronger over time…simply the perfect family heirloom for generations to come.

According to relationship expert Sheri Meyers, rekindling the flame of love is something very doable and shares a few tips.

Time for a REVAlution

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:30:00 AM in Tory Burch (2)

For the famed American fashion designer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Tory Burch, her parents will always be her main inspiration in her work and creations. Why so? Because, according to her, Ira Earl and Reva had been "the most effortlessly stylish couple" ever. Tory’s mother, whom she considers her good luck charm and muse, is so influential to her that she named one of her watch collections after her mom. With its quintessential, but bigger double-T logo dial, the Reva watch features a bold bracelet in gold-tone stainless steel endowed with stainless-steel accents, an octagonal crown for a profound signature geometric touch, and brushed T-shaped links. Reva is Swiss made for that flawless craftsmanship and to guarantee timekeeping accuracy, with a lovely butterfly clamp for stability and comfort.
The Reva and other Tory Burch watches are available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Sixty years of watch-making tradition

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:50 AM in Tudor (7)

Tudor designed a timepiece that epitomizes the iconic watchmaker’s 60 years of heritage in an awesome timepiece—the Heritage Black Bay. Called “Midnight Blue” by Tudor enthusiasts, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay, now with a mechanical movement, features a blue bezel that manifests the sharp variation and bold face that gives it a professional technical tool character. But apart from these nuances are the elements that provides a glimpse of Tudor’s illustrious past models, such as its main lines, crystal, and domed dial—which are derived from the very first collection of Tudor diving timepieces. This watch also showcases the famous “big crown” (ca. 1950s) and the “snowflake,” or the distinct angular hands of Tudor 1970s collections. You can get the Heritage Black Bay either with an aged leather strap and folding clasp or a steel bracelet.

How men should wear jewelry

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Versace (2)

Being macho doesn't give men the license to do whatever they want, especially when it comes to jewelry as there are subtle rules to be followed, at least for men who do care to look best. Since men don’t enjoy the luxury of opulence and other excesses that women enjoy, the best rule to follow is to keep it simple and subtle. For everyday office attire, a good place to begin with is with a classic leather-strapped silver timepiece, or maybe a sports watch for a slightly rugged look. Then try out some tie styles, related accessories, and cufflinks to give accent to your everyday work dress. Only when you’re already relaxed wearing these basic manly adornments that you can branch out to other types of jewelry, like rings and necklaces. And one of the best places to look for your next level jewelry is with Versace.

Similarly, wearing a Tissot makes you feel special, knowing that the brand is the preferred watch by sports superstars, from Tony Parker to Bradley Smith.

Pink is Better

Pink diamonds exude to themselves a unique elegance and exclusivity. They are playful and luxurious at once, and they stand out in a sea of standard diamonds. They have this grace that many collectors prize more than the regular white diamond. And why not? Pink diamonds are rarer, produced only in select mines. The pink hue is actually an imperfection of the stone. Sometime during its formation the diamond is mixed with other elements that give the diamond the unique characteristic. If you are interested to give pink diamonds, go for the luxury signature that is trusted for this type of diamonds: Suna Bros. It has a wide collection of pendants, necklaces, bracelets, and rings that are sure to melt the heart of your loved one.

Raymond Weil Freelancer Titanium Chronograph

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:50:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

The beauty of dress watches is that they are elegant and have an air of exclusivity to them, while they don’t draw attention to themselves, but to the wearer. It’s called discreet boast, much like how the Raymond Weil Freelancer Titanium Chronograph lends to you an air of finesse, without telling people. Despite being a sports chronograph, this watch maintains a dress watch appeal. The bold orange accent against a neutral grey and black and titanium color makes it a dress watch with an attitude. Likewise, the main dial is galvanized and given a slate-grey color, which complements the orange seconds and chronograph hands. The Raymond Weil model also carries the standard sapphire crystal cover for protection against scratching, and 10 ATM or 100 meter-depth water resistance feature.
Raymond Weil is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem and at Friendly Center.

The Rolex Submariner

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:30 AM in Rolex (2)

If you’re a new Rolex fan, the Rolex Submariner is the model that started the dive watch craze. Soon after its release, other luxury watch brands began to release their own versions, but until today, it’s the Rolex Submariner that rules this category. So, if you’re a dive watch lover, it pays to know the king watch to measure other dive watches against. To begin with, the Submariner is not the most luxurious or most durable dive watch today, just as the Swiss Victorinox isn’t the strongest pocket knife, but it’s the most iconic. Rather, the dive watch carries with it Rolex’s reputation for accuracy and quality mechanical watches. Specifically, this dive watch features the Rolex caliber 3130 or 3135, which are renowned for its Parachrom hairsprings and two days of power reserve. Being the original dive watch, too, makes it a highly regarded model.

Few jewelry collections carry with them a personality that is distinctively their own and no other signature can own. One of these, perhaps, is the Roberto Coin New Barocco. The collection stands out among other Roberto Coin lines for the subtleties of the pattern and its intricate characteristics. The collection pieces feature light, soft, weaves to create delicate threads, which are the collection’s signature. You can see this style across the New Barocco pieces, from rings to earrings and bracelets. The material is 18k yellow gold that usually features diamond accents, the amount of which depends on the piece. For instance, one bracelet is studded with diamonds laid down in five or three rows. The collection pieces can be worn on elegant nights or even on casual and laid-back days.
