Happy first year to the start of a new decade. This blog had been waiting two weeks for an update, but blogging is my school time activity, not vacation hobby. Good news: I couldn't help but find new things while on break and a long queue is ready for the new decade. Starting twenty10 comes Harry Winston, the man and company behind the most extravagant jewelry and designs, and the kind of love that money can buy. Call it the anti-recession, call it effete, but Winston's latest collection pays homage to the home of the ball drop. With obvious inspiration from the Chrysler building, the Skyscraper Ring has a fantastic art deco design. The Traffic Ring, a masculine men's ring, features three baguette diamonds, usually a complaint but appropriately placed in the platinum ring. The Reflection Brooch mimics a skyline over water, featuring 57 baguette and square cut diamonds. The sparkling Guggenheim Ring tops out with 161 round brilliant diamonds and enough brilliance to rival the sun.
