Anjolee, The Art of Jewelry

When I got engaged, I had my ring custom made by my aunt's jeweler friend in the diamond district of NYC. I selected a princess cut diamond with a platinum band. There was a particular setting from a certain popular jewelry retailer which I loved that they were able to recreate for me. I was really happy since I got a one of a kind ring with a quality diamond for a very reasonable price. We had our wedding rings made at the same time while we were at it.

Since then I've been a fan of custom jewelry. When I was introduced to Anjolee, I was impressed by their selection of diamond engagement rings and jewelry in an array of classic, vintage and modern styles. Their unique customization system allows you to design your own jewelry based on your taste and budget. You can easily personalize any item by specifying the metal type, diamond size and quality. They only sell conflict free diamonds which are guaranteed with a certificate of authenticity. If Anjolee had been around back in the day, I would've considered getting my engagement ring from them but for now I'm pondering an anniversary ring. Hubster actually wanted to buy me one for our 10th wedding anniversary a few years ago but I wanted a camera instead. He still says I can have both.

What do you think of customized jewelry? Is there a story to your engagement ring?

Eye Candy : Kang Dong Won for High Cut

Kang Dong Won finally makes a return to the big screen following his military service with the historical action film Kundo: Age of the Rampant. This also means a return to editorial features like this one for High Cut Korea. The stylish pictorial photographed in picturesque Catalonia, Spain is both playful and smoldering at the same time. He's a favorite because I really admire the the way he challenges himself as an actor. Okay he's also seriously good looking and has a really attractive deep voice. In Kundo, Dong Won portrays a villainous swordsman opposite Ha Jung Woo's protagonist, a butcher who forms a band of thieves to rebel against the corrupt nobility. This movie sounds interesting and Ha Jung Woo is usually so good but the one I'm really looking forward to is his forthcoming project, My Palpitating Life with Song Hye Kyo which looks both heartwarming and bittersweet. The two genetically gifted stars were spotted on location in Paris working on a photoshoot for Vogue Korea in May. Can't wait to see that as well and it will likely be a future eye candy feature.

Pinteresting Things : Summer Style

pinned here via source

Since summer in in full swing now, let's talk about summer style. My idea of summer dressing is definitely all about being effortless while trying to stay and look cool with a degree of modesty. That means falling back on classics and living in midi length dresses and skirts. I still wear pants and jeans and occasionally bermuda length shorts but never flip flops. I don't even own a pair as I find them massively uncomfortable and a magnet for dirty feet. The outfit above could be my perfect summer look and uniform as it translates my love for striped tops with skinny jeans. I swap in striped tanks when it's warmer and flat sandals to accommodate my rehabilitating ankle. These pins from my Style Files board on Pinterest are other types of looks that I personally wear and like. What's your summer style? Do you have a go to outfit?
