Although I adore perusing the annual Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift catalog, which was just released, my budget is quite a bit more – ahem – modest. Since the exotic gems from the Oscar Heyman Collection featured in this year’s catalog retail between $100,000 and $190,000, I realize that it’s not likely I’ll find one of these beauties in my Christmas stocking! Luckily, I’ve found a more affordable alternative for exquisite jewelry with the superior design, meticulous craftsmanship, and must-have style. It’s Jeulia Jewelry.
Jeulia Jewelry has an incredible selection of rings, from stunning engagement rings to simple wedding bands, plus fashion rings, Claddagh bands, gem encrusted wedding rings, and even interchangeable styles. Jeulia Jewelry has hundreds of designs, colors, and options… and all at realistic prices.
For example, the Jeulia Vintage Lace Design Cushion Cut Ring, pictured, is crafted of genuine .925 sterling silver. The intricate vintage-inspired design includes a charming lace motif shank which holds an impressive cushion-cut show-stopper accented by petite stones. Stunning!
What makes this ring even more special is the price. Retail $125. How is this possible, you may ask?
This ring features a brilliant hand-cut and faceted 3.7 ct. Jeulia® Stone, which is lab-created. You may not know it, but stones created in a lab are chemically, physically, and visually identical to those mined from the Earth.
In fact, lab-created stones are often superior to naturally mined ones because they contain fewer flaws. This is possible because mined gems typically have inclusions from the crystallization process (gases and other minerals mixing during the molten stage of stone creation). But, lab-created stones rely on a steady, controlled process of applying minerals, heat, and pressure, creating fewer inclusions, resulting in a better stone.
Jeulia® Stone is also excellent alternative to a mined gemstone because it is more scratch-resistant for everyday wear, measuring an impressive 9 out of a possible 10 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
I have worn my own stunning radiant cut ring from Jeulia Jewelry practically daily for almost four years now. And, I can personally attest to its wearability and scratch resistance.
In addition to Jeulia® Stone options, the company also offers an incredible collection of moissanite rings. If you are unfamiliar with this stone, moissanite is a fine gem that is guaranteed to hold its color and clarity forever.
In 1893, moissanite was discovered in a crater created by a meteorite by a French scientist Henri Moissan, who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Although he initially believed he had discovered diamonds, he later determined that the crystals were composed instead of silicon carbide.
He spent the rest of his life trying to re-create his initial discovery. Eventually, scientists managed to perfect the process, creating silicon carbide crystals (moissanite) that are more durable than diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds. In fact, on the Mohs scale, moissanite scores a 9.25, making it one of the hardest substances on Earth.
In addition to its durability, moissanite is incredibly brilliant. In fact, its dispersion is even greater than your average diamond. Moissanite scores slightly higher than diamonds on the refractive index. Technical jargon aside, this means that a moissanite ring will actually sparkle more than a diamond.
One of my faves from Jeulia Jewelry is the Moissanite Milgrain Eternity Band, shown in sterling silver. The milgrain beading adds a lovely detail. And, the sparkling moissanite stones are set into the groove of the band, making it very comfortable to wear. This gorgeous ring boasts a whopping 40 stones for a total ct. weight of 2.6. Retail $220.
Jeulia also has an entire section of unique fashion jewelry, such as bracelets, earrings, necklaces and more. My top picks include the Infinity Love Sterling Silver Necklace and the Twist Sterling Silver Hoop Earrings, pictured.
