How To Avoid Purchasing Garbage Jewelry by Jason Arasheben

Jason Arasheben- CEO Jason of Beverly Hills
"I know diamonds and I understand quality". 
This is something that I hear from clients on a regular basis. The fact of the matter is, most people don't know shit about diamond quality. They're simply trying to impress their jeweler, only to be made fun of as soon as they walk out the store. A common misconception that you can tell a diamonds clarity without a jewelers loop, or with the naked eye, is about as logical as saying that you can tell if a girl is a virgin just by looking at her-- IMPOSSIBLE and downright ignorant.
I'll save you the trouble of having to go to jewelers school and give you some tell-tail signs of shit quality jewels. At the very least, it'll allow you to sound more intelligent when your speaking to your jeweler.

Diamond Jubilee by John Walker and Sons

As Queen Elizabeth and her loyal subjects celebrate her 60 year reign, known as the "Diamond Jubilee", I'm sure there were many toasts being made in her honor. To commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Richard Watling, of Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust or QEST, and David Gates of Johnny Walker, perfected an limited addition whisky blend that is fit for a royal toast. The 60 year old spirit was selected from whisky blends casted the same year that Queen Elizabeth acceded to the throne. It fetches for a hefty £100,000 a bottle due to its ultra-rare blend and the craftsmanship of its traveling case and decanter.
Get the deets on this exquisite spirit inside.

Creepy Couture? Blinged Out Beetle Broaches

I remember an episode of America's Next Top Model that aired some years ago. Tyra Banks, persistent in her model hazing challenges, required the contestants to hit the catwalk wearing live bugs as jewelry. I thought to myself, "This is a great way to weed out the weaklings, but bugs as jewelry? There's no way anybody's doing this in real life."
Little did I know, that the fad of wearing crawling baubles has been around for centuries! A recent article on Yahoo news revealed that there are people out there who are making six legged brooches into fashion statements and wearable pets. There's even a company that sells what's called (...gag) the "Roach Broach" made from live giant Madagascar hissing cock roaches. See for yourself after the jump.

Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin

I'd like to go a bit off topic today and share a brief video covering the peaceful "Million Hoodie March" rally that was held in Los Angeles this Monday 26th, 2012. It's gotten to a point where you can't turn on your tv or go online and not see the news surrounding the death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The tragedy has made international headlines, spawning heated debates on whether or not justice was served following the death of this young man. 
It becomes more and more sad as details of the case continue to become public, so I thought I would share something a little positive. I have my opinions on the matter as do many of you, but the purpose of this video is simply to show the true unity that can be formed between people of all backgrounds, races and nationalities in the face of tragedy. ~vK
