Since Rihanna landed on the music scene, there is no pop star that has created as many trends in jewelry. And when RiRi wears a choker or a lariat, women young and more mature take notice. She’s got a style that says “I do what I please and wear what I like” by mixing renowned jewelry houses with independent designers, and it all turns out looking unstudied yet utterly chic. Therefore, if you want to make your customers happy, you will watch her closely and see what her newest style-setting looks are and what direction she is influencing.
At the Met Gala on September 13, 2021, in her Balenciaga cape and sparkly forehead, she was draped in white diamonds and platinum. Three Bulgari High Jewelry necklaces were draped around her neck, but she also didn’t miss a beat with the smaller, independent designers. She kept the ear party going with Bulgari in her main holes in her lobes; she then chose Paris-based Maria Tash’s diamond styles to climb up her ears in graduated style. It’s a streamlined, elegant look. She also wore the “Rebel” black five-carat pear-shaped diamond ring by Thelma West Diamonds. Pear-shaped stones are back in style, and Rihanna can wear one on her index finger with a chic nonchalance. Take note: statement necklaces, graduated diamond earrings, and one large diamond ring on the index finger to illustrate independent and high style.

Keith was so kind in educating and guiding my husband, me and our families in finding our perfect forever jewelry for our wedding.

He has the most beautiful selection of diamonds, bands, earrings, bracelets, etc. He is a master in his field and truly takes the time to understand what you are looking for.

My fiancée and I went in together to meet Keith to pick out a ring and we both had a phenomenal experience. He helped guide us to the perfect diamond and setting with his absolute expertise but also completely considering our style and preferences for the ring. It was the perfect combination of feeling at ease working with an expert, knowing you’re getting a beautiful ring that will stand the test of time while also feeling completely unique to us. Keith will make you feel at ease and confident in your choices and you will end up with a stunning ring perfectly matched to the ring you were dreaming about. We couldn’t be happier!
