Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to go to a private viewing of Alberto Parada's newest 2014 Red Carpet Collection thanks to Pivotal PR. Parada's influences come from the earthy beauty seen in Uruguay, South America, his childhood home, mixed with the glam of the city. The perfect medium. Gorgeous sapphires of all colors, rubies encrusted in diamonds (dies)-- all uniquely designed to capture the true beauty of the hand-selected elements chosen in his pieces. Unique, gorgeous, and what else is missing? Oh, yes. All of Parada's jewelry is made from eco-friendly materials, free-trade gems, and conflict-free diamonds to keep your mind at ease.
Of course, I had to try on the ruby earrings. Light as a feather with the perfect element of glam. I would definitely wear these as an everyday piece with a turtle neck knit crop top, velvet skirt, platform boots and a leather backpack.
More jewels I tried on were Parada's ruby ring encrusted in diamonds set on a rose gold band and Parada's signature 18 K Carnelian ring designed to sit perfectly flat on your fingers.
