Anjolee™! Customize Beautiful Jewelry at Ease!

20 Jun

Anjolee

I have always been amazed about how a jewelry selection occurs.  When looking to buy; you want to be a little knowledgeable; but somehow you always feel intimidated when trying to buy a gift and often left second guessing yourself.

It can be a bit overwhelming when it comes down to knowing your gemstones, white gold, yellow gold, clarity, diamonds…etc.  A buyer wants the experience to be joyous and happy; thinking of that special person you have in mind or for yourself!

This is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with Anjolee™!  Where can I start?  Anjolee™ The Art of Jewelry has a website that allows the buyer to customize jewelry without any intimidation.   Just imagine going into a jeweler and looking without any hassle or pressure! That rarely happens these days.  With technology today it can be done right at home; virtually and seamlessly with Anjolee™!

Curious about the name? Anjolee’s name brand was born when the two founding brothers combined their mother’s angelic nature and her passion for beautiful jewelry.  They used the word “Angel” in the beginning of the word and their mother’s first name “Lee” at the end.  By altering the French word “Jolie” to “Jolee”, they were able to incorporate their mother’s name. The combination produced the name and brand adored today known as Anjolee.

Let’s say if you’re looking for a gemstone bracelet and wanted options in the metal type, gold vs. white, 10K, 14K, 18k.  Sometimes the options are not provided or perhaps you’re not aware of the various differences.  The Anjolee website has the options to make a custom design with ease.

On their website, I was able to use all the tools provided to customize a gemstone bracelet.  I particularly liked the Wavy X Oval Stone bracelet.  With the image, I was able to switch between the metal types, do a 360 degree rotation and even look at the image in HD!

Anjolee™ Wavy  X Oval Stone Bracelet

By having the options at my fingertips, chose 14K white gold and was ecstatic about the number of options for the bracelet length.

 

Usually the standard length is 7.5 inches, however it was nice to see that I could customize it freely.

Finally after reviewing the gemstone options, I chose the gemstone Peridot ( a little history, the Peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of Peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration).

My next choice, the diamond eternity ring!

The 360 degree rotation visuals of the ring, the description of how many stones that would be detailed based on ring size was key and the Anjolee™ Diamond Standards really made a difference in the decision-making.  Throughout the selection process, a specification sheet is shown and HD images that can be downloaded at any time – which is so great when you want to compare jewelry items.  Here I was with my favorite glass of Chardonnay, music in the background and spending time with ease….designing. There are also YouTube Anjolee™ videos available for many of their jewelry selections to help.

So you have customization at your fingertips; with customer reviews to read and a question link readily available!  Customer Service is always available to help – e-mail, Live Chat and a toll-free number.   Anjolee™ even has their very own iPhone & iPad app that allows you to create and customize your very own piece of jewelry that way too!

There are educational links to help in knowing about diamonds, buying and even a glossary of terms. By placing a phone call  – they are happy to help in discussing warranties and other processing for your selection; plus available delivery options.

Pictured below is the eternity ring!  It’s absolutely beautiful!    So for those who are shopping for engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings and much more; Anjolee™ is absolutely an excellent choice!

Macy’s Say I Do Campaign, Wedding Gift & Registry Ideas!

14 Jul

Will you be attending a wedding soon?  June is usually the kick-off month wedding nuptials are planned; which are so exciting!

I have two weddings to attend, one this month and the other in September.  I know!  I know, I should have gotten a gift by now!

Well, I did get one and that’s on it’s way;  however I still was left this afternoon thinking about what to get for the other!

I checked the bride and groom’s on-line bridal registry on Macy’s and the items which were left; were kind of expensive.  I really want to stay in the limits of my budget!

So, while looking at the registry, I noticed there also was an area to shop, called The Wedding Shop and was very happy to see items that were affordable, some on sale and very, very nice but it was slotted for the bride’s bridal party!   For brides-to-be, it would be just great!

Still perplexed, I said let me click this, it was their gift guide!  YES!!!!  Much better, I selected the section Wedding and was pleased to see some affordable items, not too cheesy…. but nice!

With two – five clicks of my mouse, my purchased was done!   The shipping rates were reasonable and they do international.

While surfing, I got hooked on their ad campaign’s song – which was playing in the background!  I’ve placed the ad videos below to share with you, I love the couple which have a retro-vintage style!!!  You can get some great ideas for a party with some style!

Anyway, if you are late <like I am> looking for a gift, try looking at the Macy’s site as one of your options!

Preston Bailey! The Ultimate WOW factor with his Creations!

25 Nov

I know you watch TV and see many bridal shows where weddings are transformed into events not seem imaginable by the bride and groom.  However, this is nothing new!

You cannot even utter wedding event planner, without thinking of Preston Bailey!   He has been the go-to person for years!

I remember being introduced to him years ago while in New York’s flower district.  He explained and gave me the pointers on flowers and how they can transform a room.

He also provided me information on the flower industry, where Holland and Switzerland are the countries where most of the  flowers are grown, however if a hybrid is not quite right, it auctioned and brought, ending up in New York City’s flower district; at a reduced price!

I had no idea at the time; that he was one of the most sort out event planner!  To me, he was a person who I met, who had the mo st wonderful smile and took the time to give me some advice!

Bailey moved to New York from Panama in 1969 at age 19 to start a modeling career.  He got into event planning through Wolfe, who suggested that Bailey do floral arrangements for his clients.  One of Bailey’s first celebrity clients was Joan Rivers. (In 1998, Bailey did a “winter wonderland-themed” wedding for Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, and his transformation into event-planning superstar had begun.)

Today, Preston is now also much sought after both as a television guest and public speaker. His many national television appearances include The Oprah Winfrey Show, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra, CBS’s The Early Show, and NBC’s Today Show.  He regularly appears in dozens of publications including Town & Country, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle Décor, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and New York Post.

Recently, while reviewing my Munaluchi Bride magazine, there Preston was!  He was working with the magazine exclusively for this one of kind wedding gown he designed! The gown was made of fresh orchids flown in from Taiwan; which has never been done before!

If you unfamiliar with the magazine, it is a stylish and chic print publication released twice a year in major bookstores across the US and internationally, and digitally via their website http://www.munaluchibride.com.

In between their issues, their website provides modern style-savvy brides with daily inspiration ranging from gorgeous real weddings, creative e-sessions, and all kinds of wedding goodness!!!

Now back to Preston! Now if you are getting married and do not have an event planner; but looking for ideas?  Review Preston Bailey’s website, there are many ideas which you can consider in incorporating into your own wedding, as well ideas for any party.  Please log on to Preston Bailey’s website to get just that!

He is a master of using flowers;  making you imagine that it’s possible!

Possible to look at any object and turn it into a floral sculpture, no matter how big or small!

You will find yourself saying “Wow” quite often!
