Swarovski Collection

Before I'm not really a jewelry fan, but when my sister gave me Swarovski Jewelries I then started to LOVE IT and wanted more for collection. I adore every piece that my sister has given me, good thing she has good taste and I love u Sis for that. 

My sister works in Dubai at Chalhoub Group,

"Created by Mr and Mrs Michel Chalhoub in 1955, the Chalhoub Group is recognized as one of the leading forces in the luxury business in the Middle East. Maintaining its family owned heritage, today the group specializes in the retail and distribution of renowned brands within the sectors of Beauty, Fashion and Gifts.

Representing a portfolio of over 280 luxury brands, a presence in 14 countries and the management of over 350 retail outlets, a passion for building brands is our very essence. The Group partners with prestigious houses such as Baccarat, Christofle, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Nina Ricci, to name only a few.

Understanding market specificities and consumer preferences, brand building is at the pulse of every activity. From a stronghold in local and regional distribution to the creation of luxurious retail destinations, the Chalhoub Group’s adaptable approach ensures each brand flourishes within the local and regional context.

Today a team of 5 800 highly skilled and dedicated people are an extension of the Chalhoub family, to which the group attributes its over 55 years of success. Professionalism and passion paralleled by the values of respect, entrepreneurial spirit and excellence, are the trademarks of the Chalhoub Group."

The reason why every time her family visits here for a vacation she has lots of luxury branded gifts for us (like watches, perfume, jewelries, makeup, bags etc.). Good thing she has 25% off on any of their luxury brand products. L’Occitane, Lacoste, Geox, Benefit, Dior, Lancome, L’Oreal, CK, Louis VittonCarolina HerreraRalph Lauren, Guess, Esprit, Tag Heuer, Swarovski are only few of the luxury brands they handle and distribute.

This coming 22nd of April 2011, my sister will be coming home for a 1 month vacation. She's asking me what "pasalubong" i want, Since I'm starting to have a Swarovski Collection and i still don't have a Swarovski Ring, I told her i want a ring. .
What is Swarovski?

Known for its elegant swan logo, Swarovski is a respectable name known within the luxury jewelry industry. Swarovski produces a range of lead crystals and other related products. They are known for their well crafted, precision-cut lead crystals.
Daniel Swarovski (1862-1956), born to a glass cutter who worked for the Austrian Monarchy, patented the electric cutting machine that produced lead crystal glass jewelry. Swarovski is a private company that was founded in 1895 and is headquartered in Austria.

Swarovski is a luxury brand that produces the fine precision cut lead glass crystals.
Because of Swarovski's high precision cut, they are known for their beauty, reflection, radiance and clarity. They contain 32 percent lead, which maximizes the crystal's refraction.

Rhodium Plated? 
Rhodium is a precious metal, a member of the platinum family. Rhodium electroplating is used, especially on jewelry, to provide a surface that will resist scratches and tarnish, and give a white, reflective appearance.Rhodium plating is most often found on white gold. The term white gold is something of a misnomer. Gold is actually yellow, what jewelers call white gold today is an alloy (mixture) of gold and a white metal - usually nickel, silver, or palladium (another member of the platinum family). Metals known as white are actually more of a gray color, so white gold has a yellowish cast. The higher the karat weight, the more gold there is in the alloy, the more yellow the cast appears. Since the wearer of white gold is looking for a bright white look, a very thin layer of rhodium electroplating is used to make that jewelry shine. White gold plated with rhodium will also keep its good looks longer - rhodium will not tarnish or discolor, and since it is a harder substance, it is much less likely to get scratched.
So excited for my sis and her family's vacation here. Cant wait to see them again. 
Anther great bonding for the Gonzales Family. 
See you sis and thanks for everything. 

our happy family
