Emerald, the Birthstone of May


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Spring is in full effect and the nature around us is blooming and changing, May is the month of “rebirth” due its association with the Emerald jewel. An Emerald is the symbol of good fortune, intuition, and personal growth — and is perfect when placed and worn against the heart chakra. Associated with the astrological sign Gemini, an Emerald also helps to balance the dualities of the sign while promoting friendships and balanced relationships. The Emerald has a long history of being worshipped by the Incas, ancient Egyptians, and has been a favorite of rulers throughout many centuries including Queen Cleopatra, Alexander the Great, and others.

The London Manori Emerald necklace from our popular Lariat Collection is the perfect accessory to wear with any outfit to display your love for the beautiful gemstone. Whether a gift for a loved one, or worn for personal use, an Emerald is a classic gemstone that will always make the perfect statement.

London Manori will showcase many of its new pieces at the Jubilee Music and Arts Festival in downtown Los Angeles on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8, 2013.

Jubilee Music and Arts Festival is two-day sampling of emerging and nationally recognized artists. Guests will enjoy many of the musicians, authors, and comedians that have become a staple in the Los Angeles arts and culture scene. The festival inspires lifelong engagement with the arts by bringing together talent and members of the diverse Los Angeles community for a unique two-day creative experience.

“I love the Jubilee Music and Art Festival,” said Aneela Manori, owner of London Manori.  “This year we are introducing our Los Angeles neighbors and guests to new pieces women will love to wear. Jewelry also makes a great memento—a reminder of the incredible artists and performances they will enjoy at the festival.”

teardrop necklaceThe 2013 collection features a range of pieces to appeal to a variety of tastes, from simple knotted love rings to eye-catching tear drop earrings to contemporary bar necklaces. London Manori has become popular with celebrities, who are often photographed wearing their pieces.

Jubilee Music and Arts Festival launches the summer festival season at its new location in the downtown Arts District at 590 South Santa Fe Avenue in Los Angeles. Pets are welcome and get in free. So are children who are accompanied by a parent or guardian 18+.

Jubilee Music and Arts Festival organizers say that festival goers will have the best time if they stay hydrated and protect themselves from the sun. They recommend participants bring the following items with them to the Julibee:

      • Sunscreen
      • Sunglasses
      • Earplugs
      • Non-professional camera
      • Empty re-usable water bottles – which can be filled at fountains on-site
      • Small backpack or bag
      • Dancing shoes
      • Hat
      • Valid driver’s license – for will call and alcohol

Doing their part to keep Los Angeles clean, Jubilee Music and Arts Festival operates on a Zero Waste Plan in collaboration with Sustain LA. The event organizers believe it is important to both divert discards from landfills and also educate supporters about resource recovery efforts—a method of collection and separation that allows waste to serve another use or become a product.

Graduation Jewelry ~ Express Your Pride with a Keepsake She Will Wear Forever

graduation jewerly

Thoughtfully selected jewelry will remind her of her significant achievement—and of your love and pride.

There is an overwhelming sense of pride when we see a loved one donning a cap and gown and accepting their well-earned diploma from high school, college, or a vocational program. Many people choose to honor the graduates with jewelry—the gift they can appreciate long after the occasion.

While nearly any gift of jewelry is appropriate as a graduation gift, there are some pieces that really stand out for me—things she will more likely wear that stash away in her jewelry box.

Jewelry for Mom ~ An Elegant and Timeless Mother’s Day Gift


, , , , , , , , ,

jewelry for momJust like the love between mother and child, jewelry is the gift that lasts forever.

Still trying to figure out the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Start by thinking about what you can give Mom that she’ll treasure forever.

Flowers wilt. Scarves fade. Chocolates are consumed. But jewelry is different. Not only does jewelry remain beautiful and stay with mom her entire life, but every trip to the jewelry box will remind her of your unconditional love and the time you spent together on her special day.

The idea of the gift that carries life-long sentiment is more popular than ever before in America. The National Retail Federation estimates that jewelry will account for more than one-third—34.4%—of the gifts moms will receive on Mother’s Day this year. The average spend, according to the report, is about $170.

earrings for momThe good news is that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on jewelry, as my friend Geraldine Guivas, operator of the popular fashion blog Passion for Shoes, always says. “When someone you love gives you jewelry, it becomes much more valuable than the price on the tag,” she points out. “The added element—the emotional tie—makes the piece priceless.”

Necklaces, like the Clover & Wildflower Necklace we just introduced this week on our website, are very popular this year. So are the earrings featured in this post, which are available in an impressive variety of colors that can complement mom’s hair or match the color of her sparkling eyes.

“I don’t know a single woman who expresses disappointment over a gift of jewelry,” says Geraldine. “Like other personal items like shoes or makeup—which also make great Mother’s Day gifts—jewelry helps mom complete her look and feel good about herself.”

mom earringsWhen you pick the right jewelry, mom won’t be the only one who notices. All her friends will compliment her as well. And when they tell her how beautiful she looks wearing that necklace or earrings or charm bracelet—guess what? She will again be reminded of your love. And isn’t Mother’s Day all about making mom feel special?

Just be sure to place online orders on the London Manori website by midnight on Thursday, May 9, 2013 to ensure delivery by Mother’s Day—otherwise you might need to print a picture of your gift and tape it inside her Mother’s Day card for her to appreciate while her loving gift makes its way to her in the mail.

Happy Mother’s Day!
