Indulge in Your Love of Diamonds with DuePunti

Indulge in Your Love of Diamonds with DuePuntiJewelry…..I can’t think of any women who doesn’t in some way, shape or form have a thing for these shiny objects. Diamonds? Even better. I have collected some wonderful sparklers over the years. And I hate to admit; lately my enjoying them has been delegated to my opening a drawer to view them. Don’t get me wrong—I love them, I think they are beautiful, but unless I am headed to a formal event, I am not wearing them much. They are a little too dressy, too conventional and they don’t really go with casual wear, work-out wear and basically most of my everyday activities. Worrying about losing them while engaging in some frivolous activity? Even if they are ensured, they are irreplaceable, so back in the jewelry drawer they go!

I like wearing jewelry. I pretty much feel lost without wearing any. I like rings, but am I really going to wear a diamond while roller-blading??? I would if I could find one that was inexpensive, fun to wear and could match whatever fashion or mood I happened to be in that day. Well, if I was looking for an unconventional diamond to wear for casual and playtime, I found them in DuePunti!

DuePunti has taken diamond rings to a new level. They have taken diamonds rings exercised them as strictly engagement rings and luxury items, and made them into everyday wear. Flexible, silicone rings with a 0.02 carat diamond embedded, in 19 colors to choose from. Wear singly, or mix and match to your outfit, your day, your mood……the combinations are pretty much endless. Imagine- diamond rings at an everyday low price. Perfect gift for those young girls as their first diamond! A great Valentine’s Day gift for a woman of any age! You can see more at

And they are fun! It’s great to have a diamond with a modern, fun vibe at affordable prices! Add some bling to any outfit! Now to find a color that complements my wet suit!

Mango Tree Fitted Bangles

I remember a conversation I had with Peter Lamas, one of my favorite celebrity stylists. A fashionable women he told me, isn’t necessarily the one with the most clothes in her closet. Rather, it is the one who can make the most outfits out of what she owns. It brought back memories to my former career, where I certainly had closets full of clothes. At least one suit in every color. While I had a lot of clothes, I wasn’t what I’d consider fashionable. I’ve learned Peter’s lesson that less is more, by staying with colors that compliment me, and by really learning to accessorize.

Accessories can really make the outfit. In times where most of us are shopping in our own closets, accessories can extend the looks in your wardrobe, bringing styles from play, to the office, and to formal events. What’s better than extending your wardrobe? How about doing it in an eco-friendly and economical way? Take a look at Mango Tree Fitted Bangles. With 3 styles, 50 colors, 4 sizes and economically priced, Mango Tree Bangles are extremely popular among women of all ages. Wear singularly, mix and match, the broad range of colors (no two are alike!) assures a perfect complement to any outfit. Mango Tree Fitted Bangles give you a natural way to look fabulous.

Mango Tree Fitted Bangles are created by jewelry designers David Aviv and Helen Ducat, who met while traveling in India. Their love of travel is apparent, and from their jewelry it is clear to see that they get their inspiration from their travels. From diving and observing a coral reef and the abundance of the breathtaking colors and textures of the ocean wild life, to trekking in tropical rainforests with amazing trees, flowers and plant life, and from simply sitting at the different beaches and staring at the waves crashing into the sand, the colors of their jewelry reflect all the beauty around them. Their vision is to design and manufacture beautiful high quality products using natural materials from around the world, and to sell them at great prices so that everyone can enjoy.

Inspired by the beauty of the world and vowing to make the world a better place, Mango Tree recycles and uses natural materials to make their products eco-friendly. The Grade A organic mango trees used for their bangles are only timbered once the tree can no longer yield fruit. Mango Tree also donates a portion of the proceeds to various charities, choosing a different organization to donate to monthly. For the month of January 2012, donations will be made to LUPUS Foundation of America. When you buy a Mango Tree product you take part in making this world a better place.
