are pleased to announce a new long-term partnership 
to introduce a special exclusive collection of bracelets and charms 
bearing the JENNIFER LOPEZ trademark in USA

Jennifer Lopez Collection by Endless Jewelry
Endless Jewelry is known for its colorful Boho Chic  bracelets in quality leather and it's wide range of classic and modern charms that are all the rage in Europe and is currently sweeping markets in North America. 

The combination of affordable luxury and bright colors, has made Endless Jewelry a colorful fashion statement across continents, and the addition of the Jennifer Lopez Collection, adds a new dimension to this vast collection which allows personalization.

Jennifer Lopez said “My exclusive collection with Endless Jewelry embraces the attitude of being fun and elegant at the same time. It is also about letting each woman express her personality through her jewelry. The collection will let women celebrate what is unique and beautiful about themselves."

Jennifer Lopez is a one of the biggest superstars on the planet, fans love her "Jenny from block" personality and admire her artistry, beauty and style. Now Endless Jewelry and Jennifer Lopez are joining forces to introduce a brand new collection of impeccably crafted, unique bracelets and charms, all reflecting the glamour and one of a kind personality of Jennifer Lopez and the quality of Endless Jewelry.

CEO and Founder of Endless Jewelry, Jesper Nielsen, is thrilled about the agreement:

We offer women a way to personalize her jewelry by letting her mix and match classic and modern charms with her choice of color or colors of the day. It’s simple yet unique, and Jennifer Lopez’s extraordinary style and charisma perfectly represent the new collection. We are proud and delighted to be in this long-term relationship with Jennifer Lopez.”

The collection is available exclusively in fine jewelry stores across the United States and Canada.  Store locator here:

Jesper Nielsen’s foray into the jewelry business began in 2004 when he purchased a Pandora distibutorship, his noteriety began when news of his often peculiar-sounding business "stunts" hit the international news wires and just six years later he sold his European Pandora distributorship for over $270 million. Having forged his own path based on unique ideas, the courage to follow them, and trusting gut instincts, led to Nielsen's reputation for his relentless passion and his genuine charisma.

Today, following this tremendous success, Nielsen has launched Endless Jewelry - in Europe in 2013 (opening in more than 1,000 stores in the first 10 months) — and now in the US. Born from the concept that “everything is possible” and that customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance, Endless Jewelry features a modern, new twist on traditional charm bracelets.

World’s Largest CSARITE® Faceted By Milenyum Mining

Milenyum Mining Facets 
World’s Largest CSARITE® 

Milenyum Mining Limited is excited to announce the discovery 
and cutting of the world’s largest known faceted CSARITE® gemstone. 

The 121.65 carat pear shape rarity was cut from recently recovered rough of approximately 430 grams from the world’s only CSARITE® mine. Previously, the largest known faceted CSARITE® was an 88.49 carat pear shape that took home a coveted 2014 AGTA Cutting Edge Award. The only other large CSARITE® gemstones of a similar size have been cabochon gems that exhibit the cats eye and color change effect.

“It was an exciting challenge to cut this stone,” stated Rudi Wobito, Master Cutter of WOBITO that did the actual faceting. “CSARITE® rough very rarely produces a fine gem of this size and caliber. And it’s a very slow process to shape the rough and finally arrive at the finished gem. We studied the material from all angles for weeks before deciding on the final shape.”

Murat Akgun, president of Milenyum Mining Limited explains, “Typical loss from rough CSARITE® is 98%. We have recovered rough pieces three times the size of this one, and ended up with no faceted stones. We lost only 95% of the large specimen in cutting this gem, again setting it apart as a truly unique gem! This fine quality CSARITE® is certainly the world’s largest at this time, and we expect the retail price to be close to a million dollars."

The lively gem is beautifully cut and exhibits a pronounced and vivid color change. Interest in the rare and valuable gemstone is expected by both private collectors and top designers. Once decided, the future of this exceptional piece will be announced via press release.

MML is the world’s only source supply of CSARITE®, a natural, unenhanced color-change gemstone. Responsible for cutting and marketing of this phenomenal gemstone, MML’s mission is to introduce gem and jewelry connoisseurs around the globe to CSARITE®’s unique beauty and rarity. MML is a member of The International Colored Gemstone Association. Visit for a list of authorized retailers.

#STR - Sharing The Rough - Private Screening... #SharingTheRough

"Through the eyes of gem miners, a precision faceter, and a visionary jewelry designer, 
we will reveal a powerful story that follows a gem from mine to market."

Join us for a private test screening of Sharing the Rough
hosted by Dave McConnell, owner of The King's Jewelers in Walnut Creek.

This will be the very first showing to a public audience, 
Q & A follows with Director Orin Mazzoni and cast members Roger Dery  & Dave McConnell.

Imagine my disappointment when I received this invitation and was unable to make it to the event.  Well after thinking long and hard I remembered that my Tucson roommate Ann Marie might be available - YAY!!!  

While in Tucson this past February for the gem shows, I was privileged to view the teaser sample of Sharing The Rough, a unique movie directed by Orin Mazzoni about the gem industry. After that small taste, I was eager to see the completed movie. I had the opportunity to do just that last night at a private test screening. 

Sharing The Rough tells the story of a green Garnet gem (affectionately called “The One”), from its birth as a piece of rough in an East African mine through the faceting process with gem cutter Roger Dery and then its creation into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry by designer, Mark Schneider.  

All of these scenes expose priceless bits of knowledge that many people in the jewelry industry don’t even know about, much less the average person. Through this film the viewer will get to witness it all first hand.

Along the way you are taken into a basic mine, you meet the miners and their families and learn about their passions and the incredible struggle to find the gems in the earth. You are witness to the buying process from gem brokers and you come to understand how rare and special a large quality gem really is. Once “The One” is purchased, you observe the creative process of the gem cutter deciding on the shape of the final stone and taking down the 49 carat rough to a 13.65 carat faceted beauty.  The story wraps up with the designing and fashioning of the final piece.

After the screening, Orin Mazzoni (Director), Roger Dery (Faceter) and Dave McConnell (Associate Producer) took to the stage to answer questions and ask for feedback. They all seemed to take to heart the advice and constructive criticism that was offered from the audience. 

The film, as it was screened last night, was a gem in the rough itself. The photography and sound are well done and hold a lot of promise. There were typos in the subtitles, the color needs correcting and the sound needs to be sweetened. It is way too long and drags from too much talk at some points. The reason for last night’s screening was for the film’s creators to get feedback from the audience. 

Their passion for telling this story is obvious. In fact, they hinted at making a sequel with another gem from another location. 

I look forward to seeing the results of this next phase of editing the film which I hope will involve faceting its raw edges and designing it into a polished finished piece.
