EXPERIENCE THE ART OF JEWELRY
You just never know where inspiration will come from. In 2001 a customer of ours was enjoying the movie, Ocean's Eleven starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, with his wife. In one scene Julia Roberts makes an appearance wearing some fabulous earrings. Those earrings caught the attention of our customer's wife and she commented on how much she like them. Our customer contacted me and asked if we could make some earrings like the ones worn by Julia Roberts in the movie.
I had no clue about what the earrings looked like, so I purchased the VHS tape and played the movie. Finally, I found the correct scene in the movie and paused it long enough to get an idea of the earring design. My wife thought I was a little nutty with my face six inches from the screen as I examined several frames of the movie.
After determining the design, our jewelers were able to assemble the earrings that were made of 14k white gold and set with a multitude of round diamonds and diamond baguettes. They were a great hit with our customer's wife. She now had a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings worthy of the red carpet. Even more important, they and made her feel like a star.
