Matt Lauzon Honored in INC's "30 Under 30 List"

I had the honor of getting to know Matt (thru Twitter & email) at the beginning of his journey with what was at that time Paragon Lake.  

Since then he has partnered with some really important people in the Jewelry Industry and what was a vision is now a reality - and a reality that is doing well!

Inc Magazine has listed Matt Lauzon in it's "30 Under 30 List" amazing grouping of individuals with such a strong vision at such an early age.  If were this driven in my twenties I would own a Dept. Store by now (I was the Queen of Retail - I could sell anything!), I am so happy that I didn't take that road.

So take a minute to read the article in INC. and get to know Matt Lauzon and his passion Gemvara...

Reena Ahluwalia Does It Again! "Shining Stars for Royal Asscher

Royal Asscher’s latest “'Shining Stars” affordable floating-diamonds collection made its debut at the Luxury at JCK and JCK Las Vegas Show. 

This latest collection designed by Reena Ahluwalia for Royal Asscher is inspired by the day and night of the African Savannah and its animal magnetism.

This new collection consists of beautiful pendants and stunning rings. The styles continue to feature free-floating diamonds encased in a fluid-filled sapphire dome, giving them the effect of shimmering stars.

Affordable and on trend are two descriptions that you seldom see side-by-side, but in this latest collection from Royal Asscher you get BOTH! Following the huge success of their "Stars of Africa" Collection, designer Reena Ahluwalia brings a VERY Fashionable and Affordable collection set in Gem Ceramic or Silver with Yellow & Rose Gold plating that still features their popular floating diamonds design.

"We strongly believe in using conflict-free diamonds for development. It was important for me to highlight Africa, yet again. Proceeds from sales will continue to support Royal Asscher's 'Stars of Africa', Africa-focused fundraising initiative." says Reena on the Royal Asscher Facebook page.

African savannah, abstract leopard and cheetah prints are the inspiration for 'Shining Stars' collection. One of 2011’s hottest looks and a look we are seeing as a strong influence this Fall.  We see this exotic trend hugely influencing runways and street fashion. Versatile to mix with any of your neutrals or with the bright color stories of the Fall Runways.

The Latest Member of the "Shining Stars" Collection...
Ceramics combined with 18k rose, yellow and white gold and floating diamonds. Ceramic is extremely durable, shatterproof and scratch-proof. It is also light weight as compared to metals such as platinum and gold.
