Roberto Coin Princess Flower Ring

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

The Princess Collection is everything one can expect it to be: delicate, unique, and beautiful. Roberto Coin embraces femininity and crafts it into the most creative and sophisticated masterpieces. The Princess Flower Ring is a remarkable combination of textures, from the smooth surface of the band to the intricate rope border that frames both the band and the petals of the flower. These petals are covered with a dazzling arrangement of diamonds amounting to 0.45 carats. These 18K flower rings are available in either white or yellow gold.

The patterns on this Princess Flower Ring are nothing short of brilliant. But for those looking for something similar, Roberto Coin has designed flower rings without the diamonds. These rings are just as elegant with smooth, polished gold surfaces replacing the diamonds on the petals. The overall shape and design of the ring works well for either style, wearable on special occasions or for everyday use. The Princess Flower Ring collection is a testament to Roberto Coin's artistry that has been known and acclaimed in the jewelry fashion industry since 1977.

Tapered Hoops with Fleur de Lis Diamonds

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

These hoops are elegant, but not overstated. Their modern yet classical tapered pyramid shape make these earrings both attractive and comfortable. A row or Diamond Fleur De Lis shimmer, nestled in textured yellow gold with a twisted-rope border. On the inside of the hoop, a light but durable cage frame adds structure that is both stable, and light weight. They hinge in the middle so they open and close easily, and sit securely when closed.

The diamonds in the earrings contain .69 total carat weight of diamonds and are made of 18-carat yellow gold. They are suitable for both sophisticated day wear and sensual evening wear. They are dramatic enough to stand out but not so gaudy that they would be in bad taste. They are classy and timeless and will be something you will want to pass down for generations to come.

The Roberto Coin New Barocco

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

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.

Ruby, a different kind of colored gemstone

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Ruby seems an outcast in a playground of colored gemstones. Not that it’s less in demand; in fact, it’s the other way around. It’s rare and more exclusive that rubies are cast as a cut above other gemstones—save for diamonds—such as, sapphires, amethysts, citrines, and topazes. Moreover, ruby, because of its stature, is used differently from its gemstone cousins; it is often paired with an elegant dress or formal suit and ruby is reserved for glamorous nights. Not that you can’t use ruby daily, you can. But ruby shines best in formal evenings. If you’re looking for one of the best rubies, check Roberto Coin. It has a range of ruby jewelry from rings to necklaces and earrings to bracelets set in the Roberto Coin signature of eccentric style.

How to stand out in style

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

There are many ways to stand out in a roomful of stylish people. One, don't follow the latest trend; rather, stick to timeless styles. They are elegant and classic, which adds a layer of sophistication in your overall fashion. Two, go for colorful jewelries to match your dress. Colored diamonds or multi-gem jewelry can distinguish your style from a room of white diamonds, yellow gold, and grey silver. Three, know the colors that highlight your features. Even when you meet someone wearing the same color, you'll appear more vibrant if the color matches your skin tone. You can also wear limited jewelry editions like Roberto Coin's Cow Black and White Diamond Bangle. It's pricey but exclusive to a privileged few. It features ruby eyes set in 18k rose gold and black diamonds.

By the Thousands

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Roberto Coin once said that the biggest challenge when one starts to design jewelry is the correct prediction of trends that the consumers will love. Well, judging from the success of both the brand and the man. Roberto Coin hardly finds correct prediction of trends a challenge. While most brands create particular iconic pieces that they push and market for all women to own and wear, Roberto Coin prides himself on creating over 600 pieces every year. In the past year, 2013, he created more than a thousand. He does this to complement any type and style of woman – gifts, at the least. Roberto Coin doesn’t force it with a few icons. He brings gifts for fashion-forward women.

Never Ordinary

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

If there is one thing that Roberto Coin can never run out of, it would be creativity. Unlike most jewelry brands who put out just a few models a year, Roberto Coin intentionally does the opposite. Roberto Coin reportedly creates around 600-700 models every year. This tremendous feat and significant investment is all hinged in the intent of giving every woman the opportunity to be unique and never just ordinary. The sheer number of these pieces allows every woman to exercise her own creativity. She can pick-and-choose or mix-and-match to her own taste and to a different pace than the march of the majority. But if there is one only piece of jewelry that a woman can own, Roberto Coin believes that it should be something from his Cento diamond collection. Unlike the usual 57 facets of most diamonds, a Cento diamond has 100 – Roberto Coin’s masterpiece invention. 
 
Browse through Roberto Coin collections like the Animalier in Schiffman’s at Winstom-Salem. Surely, you’ll find something worth taking home.

The Mystic of Rubies

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Do you know that touching a ruby can bring you wealth, health and happiness? Forever, really, at least for ancient Egyptians who regarded the precious stone to have mystic powers. True or not, rubies are elegant for sure. They are timeless and exquisite, which perhaps made the ancient people imagine these stones were out of this world. Well, Roberto Coin thinks, too, as far as creating ruby jewelry into mythological attractions with contemporary styles. The world-class luxury signature is renowned as one of the world’s most luxurious jewelry, especially for its fashionable use of rubies and rubellite. We don’t guarantee that a Roberto Coin ruby will bring you fortune; only that it will surely bring curious, gawking attention to it. Besides you must have enough fortune already to wear a Roberto Coin.

Lion Beauty

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Roberto Coin (40)

The symbolic meaning of lions, as one might imagine, primarily deals with strength. Lions have been an important symbol for thousands of years and appear as a theme in cultures across Europe, Asia, and Africa. Despite the recorded incidents of attacks on humans, lions enjoy positive depiction in popular culture as creatures that appear strong, but gentle at the same time. The most consistent depiction is in keeping with their image of "king of the jungle" or "king of the beasts", hence lions are popular symbols of royalty and stateliness and a symbol of bravery. Symbol of majesty, courage, strength and sensuality, the lion is also Roberto Coin’s zodiac sign and the emblem of his native city, Venice. Roberto Coin designed this vibrant and refined jewel with intimate inspiration and followed the complex manufacturing process to allow the intricate mane to be as free, dynamic and wild as the bright side of life should be, this is the last and fundamental symbol the lion represents.

Something Blue and Beautiful

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Something Blue is a phrase derived from a saying about the items a bride should carry or wear on her wedding day for good luck -- something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe. The third of the five items or "Something Borrowed" represents borrowed happiness. Some brides use a borrowed item from a long-time happily married couple for this item, but it can also be something borrowed from a friend or other relative who is symbolic of happiness. The borrowed item should be returned to the owner following the wedding day.
 
Roberto Coin, in celebration of the wedding season offers a medley of easy, effortless and elegant jewelry – perfect for your engagement, pre-wedding, wedding, and after-wedding ceremonies.

Horse it Up

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Some 4,000 years ago wild horses were first tamed for domestic use and since then many breeds have been developed. Due to its natural companionship with man in both work and art, the horse easily wins a special seat in history, ranking high marks of honor, reverence and symbolism. Horses are symbols of our understanding which can be strong and powerful, move at speed through all sorts of ideas and jump from one idea across to another. They also generally represent a driving force in our life, strong emotions, and passionate desires. As a symbol of loyalty and devotion; a horse believes completely in his rider. It can also be your warrior spirit - the brave fighter who brings you safely home in after your long journeys.
 
If you’re one of those many people who loves horses and the ideas and belief they represent, the Horse Diamond Cufflinks from Roberto Coin is for you. It is an 18K yellow and white gold horse cufflinks with diamonds with an approximate 0.21 total carat weight.

The Stylish Shanghai

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Known as the “Paris of Asia”, the 1920s Shanghai boasted fine restaurants, exquisite craft shops, and places where foreigners played polo and enjoyed dog racing and horse racing – at that time the most prosperous city in East Asia. It is arguably the most decadent place on the planet, and a city so westernized, it had its own Chinatown. Even today, the remnants of the glorious 1920s can still be seen if one heads out for the stately old buildings of the Bund or the French Concession, and the city continues to be the largest, richest and most cosmopolitan city in China.  Communism, of course, stalled the full flowering of Shanghai and it slumbered for half a century. But in recent memory, the magnificent city is stepping out again, with not just Chinese but global aspirations. 
 
The sleeping beauty is even fully awake in Roberto Coin’s stunning collection, Shanghai. Inspired by the idyllic streets of 1920s Shanghai, the collection boasts the vibrant hues of Peridot, Iolite, and Topaz alongside diamonds and gold. It is truly an emblem of a time that was once lost but now has been found.

Luxury Can Be Wild

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:45:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

Humans have always been fascinated of the bizarre nature of the creatures of the wild. Fierce instincts and keen intuitions are the very soul of their own survival. We often watch NatGeo Wild to see wild cats in motion capturing their prey. Human as we are, we are in awe with the fantastic traits of the creatures of Kingdom Animalia that even Hollywood movies are animal-inspired. Even our fashion trends have the animal sense displayed in shoes and apparel, we find animal prints fashionable. Since it is fashion, jewelry has to be updated and Roberto Coin is going wild.
 
The designer began in 1977 by creating and manufacturing for other Italian lines.  Building a reputation for his craftsmanship, Coin launched his own brand in 1996 in Venice, Italy. In 2000, the line was ranked number 7 among top jewelry lines in the US. By 2002, the line was ranked 3rd in the world’s top brands, and 1st in Italy.  Today the luxury jewelry sells in high-end departments like Schiffman’s.
 
Known for his signature ruby in his jewelry, Roberto was inspired by the historical fact that Pharos gave rubies to their wives. It was believed that when the stone touched the skin it would bring good luck, health, happiness, and even fertility. Roberto thought it was a beautiful story, so he began adding them to the Appasionata collection, and eventually to every piece. Then every woman who owns a Roberto Coin piece will have good fortune.
 
“I want to do the opposite of every other brand. It’s like upside down branding. Instead of buying my jewelry and all women who have it look the same, I try to give them the possibility of looking uniquely different from each other.” he says. Wanting to do the opposite of every brand, Roberto believes in “upside down branding” thus creating six hundred to seven hundred new models of jewelry every year.  It’s a tremendous investment for Roberto Coin but the innovative designs of its jewelry give women the opportunity to be up to date with fashion and be completely unique at the same time.
 
But what makes Roberto Coin are the simple things in the world; life, art, food, and wine. He and his family lives in Venice and as the designer considers himself as an intellectual man, he considers living in Venice as living in a museum. The painstaking work for other designers is no work at all for Roberto Coin, making each piece not an end product of work but a result of passion and love for creativity and design.
 
Roberto Coin, with numerous fabulous collections throughout the years, has come up with something different that no other jewelry line has done before, his very own Animalier Collection. The Italian jeweler draws his unique inspiration from the kingdom of beasts in the exquisite Animalier Collection, injecting the spirit of the wild in his unique alluring masterpieces.
 
Horses, bald eagles, geckos and fish feature outstandingly in this collection, made largely of diamond-encrusted and enamel-accented silver and gold. Coin also showcases the textures and patterns in the animal kingdom in his work, with pieces reflecting cobra scales, elephant hide, turtle shells, and the spots on giraffes and leopards. Animalier is a feast of unique and exotic designs found in the wild. 
 
The scorpion is designed for Roberto’s wife, who is a Scorpio while the octopus is designed with Paul the octopus from Germany. Paul correctly predicted all of the winners of the German World Cup soccer games in 2010 that when he died, they found the octopus had two hearts and two brains, so on the inside of the jewelry he has inlaid the symbols of two hearts and two brains.
 
But aside from Animalier, Roberto Coin also hopes that all women should have something from his Cento diamond collection. He considers the Cento collection as his exclusive invention and masterpiece because unlike most diamonds which only have 57 facets, the Cento collection has 100. Every woman deserves a diamond, every woman deserves a Cento. 
 
The King of Morocco, the Sheik of Dubai and Oprah Winfrey are some of the significant people and famous celebrities who are fond of Roberto Coin jewelry. Roberto wished to design and create jewelry pieces for three women in history: Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, and Maria Callas—three different women who displayed power and affection, the representations of the Roberto Coin spirit.
 
 “I understand women. I spent years undressing them, now I make money dressing them up. I have a keen eye for what a woman wants. What piece of jewelry will be the perfect fit for her.”
 
Roberto Coin is truly a genius in his own craft, and like a wild animal, he uses his instinct to comprehend what is out of sight and what cannot be heard but felt by the heart.

A Treasure Worthy of its Name

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Roberto Coin (40)

 

Each one of us have treasures we deeply care for, some, we value more than the others. For some, it is education – for it is thru it that they can attain a higher calling in life or a more comfortable living, whichever is your perspective. Others, it’s their loved-one, maybe because the person means the world to them, or they wouldn’t know what life would be without such person. For certain individuals, it’s their health and their very existence. Still, for a lot of us, our treasures are those little keepsakes that represent the heart and soul of a giver whom we dearly love or miss. Tiny treasures that may be of earthly possession but nevertheless would make one smile (for some, heaven-ward) every time one looks a t them, makes one think of the person who gave or made it, or just something of someone to keep. 
 
If you are looking for tiny treasures with remembrance and love in mind, Roberto Coin offers just that with its Tiny Treasures collection – a collection of whimsical 18K gold and diamond pendants that would truly be a treasure worthy of its name. 
 
Come see it at Schiffman’s in Winston-Salem.
