For the Love of FIFA

June 11, 2010

TGIFIFA – Thank Goodness It’s FIFA!

At 5:30 a.m. today, the hottest place to be in Seattle wasn’t one’s favorite local coffee shop. Instead, crowds gathered in brewpubs all over the city to watch the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Yes, breakfast + beer + soccer! They came by car, bike, bus, and on foot. It is, after all, the largest sporting event in the world.

Soccer fans in Seattle show their pride by waving Sounders FC scarves, marching, face painting, and chanting. We hear fans in other parts of the world can be a lot more passionate. 😉 For us, the question is: how would a jewelry designer convey his enthusiasm for soccer… err, football? And the winning answer turned out to be: with 3500 carats of diamonds!

Diamond Soccer Ball for 2010 FIFA World Cup

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is indeed a Diamond Soccer Ball. Designed by Yair Shimansky, this sparkling symbol of his devotion to the sport contains 6620 white and 2640 black, round brilliant cut South African diamonds. We may be slightly biased, but this has to be the most gorgeous and fitting souvenir of the coveted FIFA tournament. Now, how much do you think this baby costs? 🙂

Everlon is here!

Everlon™ Diamond Love Knot Pendant in 14kt White Gold

Everlon™ Diamond Knot Pendant in 14K White Gold

This past week, the first pieces of the new Everlon diamond knot collection arrived in our stores.  I think they are simple and beautiful and perfectly symbolize the bond that ties us to our loved ones.

The design is based on the Hercules knot, an ancient symbol of strength. During the time of Alexander the Great, the Hercules knot was considered magical. It is the strongest knot that can be formed.

In our pieces, without the diamond at the center the knot would unravel.  These pieces express the beautiful idea that the only thing stronger than a diamond is love itself.

We have a number of variations on the theme, including pendants, rings, and bracelets.

Drop by a Ben Bridge store and try on a piece.

Take a picture of it and share it with us!
