An Expert Analysis from Rick Jobson
There has been quite a bit of recent talk about how international fashions are impacting local designers like Alex Perry. Jewellery, like clothing, follows trends and influences. As an Australian jewellery designer we need to be aware of international trends and influences.
We do, both consciously and subconsciously, bring our own Australian flair and influences from our life into our design work. But there has been an increasing and quite pro..
The 2016 MTV VMAs were hosted in NYC on Monday 29th August and, as with most award shows, we were most excited to check out who wore what!
Award shows are the perfect time for our favourite celebrities to bring their bling game, and they certainly did not disappoint.
One performer of the night, Rihanna, particularly impressed. Not only did she perform multiple times, she also rocked some incredible jewellery pieces.

If you are ever looking to see what the latest jewellery style trend is, Award Show Red Carpets are always a great place to start.
The 2016 Emmys held earlier this week were no exception, with stars going all out to show their incredibly sparkly pieces. This year’s biggest trend was drop earrings. Wearing little to no necklaces, rings and bracelets, stars made their statement pieces large drop earrings.
Check out our favourite pieces:
Angelina Jolie is renowned for her incredible work as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Humanitarian, Campaigner for Breast Cancer Awareness, and for the children she has adopted. What isn't always recognised though is her impeccable style and taste in jewellery.
Although she regularly changes her outfit colour, in jewellery it seems she does favour the colour green, with a number of Red Carpet outings featuring pieces with Emeralds, Green Tourmalines, and Santa Maria Aquamarine.
It is no secret that reality star, Kim Kardashian-West loves to indulge in fine jewellery. Frequently sharing pictures of her multi-million-dollar collection on social media, Kim has us falling in love with her pieces.
We’ve narrowed down our favourite pieces which will have you wanting them all!

Mariah Carey has never been one to shy away from the finer things in life; regularly showcasing her fancy clothes, private planes and fine jewels. It is no secret that the singer’s 35 carat engagement ring, given to her by Fiancé, James Packer, is the most expensive piece in her collection, but it seems diamonds really are a girls best-friend in Mariah’s case, because she owns A LOT of them.
We’ve narrowed down some of our favourites:
These drop earrings are st..
Each year, the Victoria’s Secret Angels take the runway, sporting the new collection of the brand’s lingerie. As a highly televised event, the Angels are kitted out in big, beautiful attire to accompany their lingerie, we also see performances from big name artists such as Justin Bieber.
The feature of the show though, is the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra. The flamboyant bra that is synonymous with at least seven figures was introduced by Victoria’s Secret in 1996. Thi..
You may have heard the news yesterday that Donald Trump has officially been elected as the President of the United States, but what we haven’t heard a lot about is the women who will also assume their lives in the Whitehouse.
Donald Trump brings along a family of three females and three males to his new home. Wife, Melania Trump, daughters Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and sons, Donald Trump Jr., Eric and Barron.
Naturally, we were interested in the jewellery that these women would be we..
If your friends have been getting engaged recently, you’ve likely had your social media feeds filled with engagement ring pictures. We’re constantly discussing the shape, colour, and size of the diamond. We pay close attention to the setting that it is in, and how it might look alongside a wedding band.
Once the wedding band and the eternity band are added though, the photographs tend to stop. The rings become more private to the couple, reminding themselves of their commitment to..
The hardest part is over – you’ve found the love of your life. Now is the time to find the perfect engagement ring and plan a beautiful proposal. Traditionally speaking, it is the groom who picks out the engagement ring. However, with the introduction of Pinterest and Instagram, it is becoming increasingly popular for the bride-to-be to select her own ring, or at least give the groom a helping hint (or two!). Whether it be the groom or the bride-to-be who selects the engagement ring,..

Lately I’ve read many opinion pieces on the internet claiming Hearts On Fire diamonds are ‘just another branded diamond’, and ‘all hype’. There are suggestions that any certified diamond with a ‘triple excellent cutting grade’, are as good as Hearts On Fire and a lot cheaper.
I was very fortunate to be offered an invitation to tour the Hearts On Fire cutting facility, and with a background in diamond cutting, was one of the select few who real..
