Jewelry you don't see every day: the most gorgeous and the most hideous example

Jewelry you don't see every day: the most gorgeous and the most hideous example

This blog is purely to entertain you. It’s very unlikely that you are about to buy one of these pieces. One is probably a little out of reach for most of us. The other, well...see for yourself. Van Cleef & Arpels did an amazing job with their Automate Fée Ondine. It is not just pure art. It’s a genius piece of work!

TIER, a must-see exhibition of the Dutch Taxidermy duo Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren!

TIER, a must-see exhibition of the Dutch Taxidermy duo Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren!

The TIER exhibition of Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren and Armando is held at the MOA Museum, situated in a lovely park just outside Utrecht. The park and the museum are beautiful, the area is so green and a magnificent example of the age of Enlightenment and worth a visit even without this wonderful exhibition, but as I am huge fan and deeply intrigued by the work of the Dutch taxidermists artistic displays, I did not want to miss the opportunity to see their artwork with animals from up close!

My 21 favorite American Jewelry Brands and designers

My 21 favorite American Jewelry Brands and designers

The U.S.A. is a huge country, playing a leading role in the world of jewelry. And with a movie industry that outshines all other red carpet industries in the world. In the land of endless opportunities, there are so many exciting jewelry brands.

I have made my choice, based on how I look at jewelry. With a love for the eclectic, but with a love also for the classics and brands that have a history. I adore young jewelry designers and honor the ones that have proven their stability and shown their identity. Love to know which American Jewelry Brands are my favorites?

Warning: 1 in 5 pieces of fashion jewelry may be damaging your health!

Warning: 1 in 5 pieces of fashion jewelry may be damaging your health!

It is not the kind of message we love to share. We always think of companies taking their responsibilities and do no harm, but unfortunately, this is not the case. One in five pieces of tested fashion jewelry, in the Netherlands, has proven to contain a high to dangerously high amount of cadmium, lead or nickel. We have all the facts.

Hi, I am Esther and on this blog I simply love to inspire you! My own passion for jewelry was born in the years I have spend in Valenza, Italy. The world’s capital of handmade fine jewelry by the greatest craftsmen. For me, jewelry has everything to do with art, love, craftsmanship and creativity on one side. And on the other side: with joy, emotions, capturing memories, and playfulness. Once I was asked to give a quote about my personal view on jewelry. Here is how I see it:

‘’A piece of jewelry is often a piece of art. But it only becomes valuable when emotions are added to it’’

I have worked for 25 years in jewelry, mostly in international sales and marketing, but also running a jewelry store for over 6 years in Italy. Bizzita.com started in 2013. First, I hoped it to be a source of inspiration for jewelry lovers, but it quickly grew much bigger. Bizzita.com has become a consultancy company for jewelry brands and jewelry stores all over the globe. We have created a store locator and business directory! And I write personally for several international jewelry trade magazines.

Want to know more? Drop me a line! We would love to know, I mean, really LOVE to know what you think of Bizzita.com and what you would like to see on this website! But also; what do you think about jewelry? Do you have a special story that you want to share? Are you a creative designer that has come up with something exciting? We would LOVE to get in touch with you!

Thank you SO very much for coming to Bizzita.com! :-* Esther
