Romantic Pairing---Rose & Chocolates
Imaginative jewelry is an amalgam inventive design, sensational gemstones and lustrous metals. Newer pairings like rose gold and chocolate diamonds are a can't miss combo. Just like Christina Hendricks proves redheads can wear red . . . . so we also find that the rosy hues found in both rose gold, (sometimes called pink or red gold) and warm brown diamonds are perfection worn on her.
History of Brownies
Brown diamonds have always been around. But they didn't always enjoy the wide adoration that they do today. Many of the most beautiful specimens are sourced from the Argyle mines in NSW Australia. Once they became the darlings of the jewelry world, they started getting luscious names attached to them like chocolate, cognac, champagne and more.
Haven't I Seen You Somewhere Before?
Rose gold is an alloy of gold and copper--hence the blushing tint that lends an extra special quality to the precious metal. It was popular in the 1920s especially with men's wristwatches. But it's found a loyal fan base once again since it offers an uncommon addition to a special piece of jewelry.
Oh Those Mad Men
Christina Hendricks wears LeVian rose gold rings with chocolate diamonds to the Man Men special screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The perfect venue for enjoying the mid century window of life on New York's Madison Avenue as captured in the wildly popular Mad Men series.
