Dearest Gold Snobs,I am sure you are the envy of every party this holiday season in your glowing Essante. Thanks for always snobbing around with me. I love you and can’t wait to share more Golden Snobery with you next year!Love,ConstanceP.S. You are very welcome for all of my hard work. 😉
Okay so they don’t actually have to be real gems, but props if they are!
Now I have never particularly been the (Pardon French about to escape these keys)
Booty jiggling up out your jeans…”
kind of girl….. but if you are a Twerkalicous little Kitty… Hey Girl Hey, no judgments here…… but for Godsake Girl get your bling right!
Here are the redeeming Bling essentials for that #TwerkLife:
1.) At least one multi finger ring: preferably one that says something like “Werk” or “YOLO”, Sure there are classy multi-finger rings but if your going to #beaboutthatlife, PLEASE fully commit!
2.) A slave bracelet… either doubled with your multi-finger ring or on the other hand! That’s why you have two hands, duh. (no but really I ma actually obsessed and trying to figure out which stones to use in mine bc I really think they are a must… twerking or no.)
3.) A name plate. A BIG name plate!!!
4.) Giant Hoops, preferably the kind that tell everyone what nickname you like to go by or who you plan to vote for or just GIANT no you’re not thinking big enough still GIANT HOOPS. (Did anyone else grow up in a neighborhood where the saying was “bigger the hoop, bigger the hoe?”—- No Girl on Girl crime here just question….)
5.) A Grill. So Def a grill…..
6.) Big Chains
7.) Body Chains.
8.) a Hand Cuff (not the kind the police use…. although that may or may not be a part of “that life” I don’t really know.) Less confusingly known as a Palm Cuff.
9.) Claws. Diamond Claws.
10.) more. More. MORE. Because MORE IS MORE.
Whatever your lifestyle choices are… I love you…
Just don’t ever forget to “Shine Bright like a Diamond”

Like most girls, I have had an affinity for tiaras since as long as I can remember. However, the idea of having to marry someone (since obviously I already missed the whole be-born-into-a-royal-family boat) did not ever sit well with me.
So instead I decided to enter beauty pageants because I like many other young women I wanted a tiara that basically says “I’m Pretty!”
Unfortunately, I never win or even place in these things because who really knows how to actually be the prettiest girl in the room. It’s probably part luck and part… I don’t know something I obviously didn’t have any of the times I tried. The point is one day while I was pouting my sister reminded me that I am a Jewelry Designer and can always just design my own tiara, just like she did for a class project (I swear my sister is part 11 = part genius!) So I did, for Femme Luxe and it will be available for sale in Canada this week. 🙂
Check out my sisters Crown she made for a class project using aluminum foil, cardboard and broken jewelry!
Day 2 of Gemstone Wishlist for Tuscon:
This Gemstone doesn’t need a lot of talking up, you might say all it needs to do is wink in the candle light 😉 because The rare pale purply-pink color is enough to get most people’s attention.
This Unique stone, is often considered an All-American beauty, found in the USA and named after a famous American! Kunzite was originally found in Southern California, in 1902, and is considered to be a rich part of the Tiffany & Co. History as it was identified and named by a Tiffany’s Gemologist George Kunz. Kunzite is a stunning lilac to powder pink colored gemstone and gets its coloring from Manganese. Like any fair skinned beauty, the sun is damaging to the color of this gemstone, so it is best at cocktail parties and late night rendezvous (I know right, how sensually perfect.)
Tiffany & Co. even used this collector’s size 175.00Ct + Kunzite, in this Necklace, for its 175th Anniversary in September of last year.
Here are some other incredible Kunzite pieces from Tiffany & Co.:
And One Stunning Kunzite and Amethyst Necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels:
If you must have more Kunzite in your life check out this more scientific profile on gemstone.org:
And if you are looking to buy… be prepared to pay a pretty penny for this beauty of the night 😉 (Oh Stop…I’m Sorry I couldn’t resist.)
Once upon a time jewelry was about elegance, nothing more and nothing less. Primary concerns were stone quality, rarity, and craftsmanship. Every piece was pretty and in line with the times. But earthquakes shook the world, as did wars and women’s rights and those dainty little whispers of jewelry faded and resurfaced as bold hideous yelling monstrosities, only to be cast off into a period of minimalism. As the world continued to rumble ghosts of jewelry past reemerged some as whispers some as shouts but all with voices singing the truth. The Beginning of the End.
