Elyse Jewelers enjoyed being part of the Jazz Brunch to benefit our friends at The Professional Center for Child Development and the wonderful work that they do. We had a lot of fun bringing some of our fabulous jewels from the Oscars along with Mr. World America, Alexander Ouellet for some fun in the photo booth!
When you’re shopping for a new ring or bracelet, you can always go to the mall and browse the cases at the chain jewelry stores. Sometimes, though, the occasion calls for something a little different, something unique to you and your style. That’s when the savvy shopper turns to a custom jeweler, someone who can turn your personal tastes into a piece of wearable art.
Chillin' and grilling for the average Joe means a backyard bash and a few brewskis. For Celtics [team stats] center Kendrick Perkins [stats] it involves a smile brimming with diamonds, the bejeweled mouthpiece of the elite rap and sports set.
That the Celtics center recently spent thousands on oral bling is no surprise to jeweler Richard Berberian of Reading, who has dozens celebrity clients on his roster.
When Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo took hold of the Miss Universe crown back in December, she wasn’t the only person who scored the opportunity of a lifetime. The pageant queen’s win was also a major coup for her official jeweler, seventh-generation gemologist Richard Berberian and his family’s epic design dynasty. But despite the everlasting appeal of glittering diamonds and sapphires, the actual craft of gemology has fallen by the wayside. "The art is gone," says Berberian, who owns Elyse Fine Jewelers in Reading. "It’s like anything…how many cars are handmade now? How many suits are hand-tailored? The art of almost everything is gone."
“When it comes to diamonds, the world isn’t traditionally round,” says Richard Berberian, the owner of Elyse Fine Jewelers in Reading, Mass. “The trend is moving to alternate shapes.” Think: cushion, tycoon, oval and emerald cuts, as well as old mine cuts (larger, square shaped) typical of family heirloom jewelry.
