Fabulous Gemstones Event

GeneralLynn KishabaComment

In the world of gemstones, there is always more to learn and discover. Last Thursday, we enjoyed an informative and fun evening in Southlake, Texas to see some fabulous gemstones and learn about mining practices, cutting and trends from the owner for Top Notch Faceting. Jean-Noel explained how certain cuts create more interest in some gemstones as he passed around museum quality and rare finds from Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Brazil and other areas of the world.

Pictured here is the largest rough Aquamarine we have ever seen - 300 carats with a natural tube running through it, which increases the value along with the iron colored thread deep in the middle of the stone. The cut aquamarine stone pictured is an example of fine facet cutting for a fabulous gemstone pendant or ring.

Aquamarine is considered the symbol of youth, hope and health.

Summer Travel Tips

GeneralAdminComment

DFW Style Daily posted Travel tips by Carinthia Kishaba on May 23, 2014 Carinthia"When dealing with airport security and the shoe issue, I always wear slip-on shoes. Tying up the line with complicated shoes is a bit on the rude side. Also, I’m very cold natured, so I always wear pants and take a sweater on the plane, rather than using in-flight blankets. That way, your skin isn’t touching anything that hundreds of other people have used. Finally, chewing gum during take-off and landing helps with the ear pressure, of course, but for little ones, I suggest having them take small drinks from a sippy cup or bottle for the same result.”

DFW Style Features Couture Rocks Fine Jewelry

GeneralAdminComment

Couture Rocks Owner, Carinthia Kishaba, was featured in the April 8 edition of DFW Style Daily.

In the business of bling since 2001, Carinthia Kishaba dreamed of becoming a designer while shining brightly as a retail leader for jewelry boutiques across the country. After carefully cultivating her aesthetic for nearly a decade, Kishaba’s creative ambitions became a reality when she and her mother co-founded Couture Rocks Fine Jewelry in 2010. Focusing on limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces, the entrepreneur crafts her own custom creations in-house. Through Couture Rocks, she also sources luxurious finds for clients from additional top tier labels. When she’s not on an obsessive quest to score the “perfect piece” for one of her many devotees, Kishaba finds inspiration around the Metroplex. Today, she’s revealing all that glitters in our own backyard with a roster of sparkling local recommendations.

Couture Rocks Fine Jewelry would like to introduce you to one of our FABULOUS DIAMOND PARTNERS and the only ECO-FRIENDLY Totally GREEN Diamond Company in the World!

Avilan Diamonds is an Eco-friendly diamond company that buys and sells “up-cycled” diamonds, called Storied Diamonds. Storied Diamonds not only protect the environment, but they also promote diamond sustainability and end conflict that is associated with traditional diamond mining. Avilan’s dedication to protecting the earth earned Avilan the certification of the world’s first and only responsible source for diamonds. Avilan’s certification, through SCS Global Services, assures diamond shoppers of three things: Storied Diamonds are sustainable, there is an alternative diamond option for Eco-savvy shoppers and Avilan is holding the diamond industry ethically and environmentally accountable for the devastation caused by mining.

Avilan Diamonds are sourced in America using a conflict-free, transparent supply chain.They are committed to creating positive change in the diamond industry by giving previously owned diamonds new purpose. Through relationships with consumers and retailers, they circulate diamonds already in the marketplace. Their inventory does not include newly mined diamonds.

How do you know an Avilan diamond is real?  It's important to know your source when buying diamonds. Avilan™ tracks all of its diamond sources to ensure that they are only purchasing and selling post-consumer diamonds. Each stone in their inventory is thoroughly inspected prior to sale to ensure it is real.
