I was recent emailed by a blog reader to check out Marissa Alperin after a great experience she had. I'm very happy she did.

Marissa's work is bright and fresh as well as clean and modern. She uses a wide range of stones in brilliant stand out colors. Great color combination with tourmalines and sapphires. She has some interesting designs and shapes. Some of the pieces have a very simplified Temple St Clair feeling. Over all I am partial more to her solitaire's and simplifed settings. Her multicolored bands a a bit much for me.

Over all nice work and affordable.

Temptation Ring with a raw diamond.

So in love with this. I think this is better then the original version of this ring. This stone is more fitting.

So, today on my way home from fitzgerald jewelry I stopped by Brooklyn Charm where I buy beading supplies. And behold I see this ring on the finger of a lovely lady. The owner of the store. What luck! Dam it's lovely!!
