Alyce n Maille Eclipse Stainless Steel Pendant
Jennifer Nyiri of Alyce n Maille (http://alycenmaille.com) is pleased to announce that actress Ellen Tamaki wore the designer's handcrafted stainless steel Eclipse Pendant on Episode 111 of CW TV's "Charmed." The episode aired January 27, 2019. This marks the 11th television placement for Alyce n Maille jewelry, which has previously appeared on “Arrow,” "Bones," "Jane the Virgin," "The Originals," and "The Vampire Diaries."
"Seeing my Eclipse Pendant worn by Ms. Tamaki on the episode “Witch Perfect” was great fun! The necklace is reminiscent of celestial events of the sun and moon, making it a perfect fit for the show’s ‘supernatural’ spirit,” remarked Jennifer.
This original Alyce n Maille design was selected for Ms. Tamaki, who plays character Niko Hamada, by the wardrobe stylist for "Charmed," in collaboration with California-based The Artisan Group®.
The unique and stylish pendant was handcrafted by Jennifer using high quality stainless steel. She notes, "It’s the perfect minimalist piece… with an individual touch." She adds that, "stainless steel is a terrific alternative to sterling silver since it has all the strength, beauty and drama of silver, yet doesn’t tarnish."
The necklace retails for $35.00 and is available to purchase at alycenmaille.com.
Alyce n Maille has become a popular jewelry resource for Hollywood stylists. Most recently Emily Bett Rickards (playing Felicity Smoak) wore Alyce n Maille’s Sweet Pea Necklace on episode 705 of The CW’s “Arrow.” Justina Machado ("Six Feet Under," "Queen of the South") wore a pair of Turquoise Crystal Chandelier Earrings on Episode 403 of “Jane the Virgin.” Also on “Jane the Virgin,” Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez wore a Crystal and Gold Bracelet on Episode 314 (air date March 20, 2017) and Carrie Madsen (playing fertility clinic director Diane) wore a Blue Twist Necklace on Episode 122.
In December 2016, the company's Forever Gold Tassel Earrings were worn by actress Kristen Gutoskie (playing character Seline) on the mid-season finale of the CW Network's "The Vampire Diaries." This was the fourth appearance of Alyce n Maille jewelry on that show, with Candice King (as Caroline Forbes) wearing a pair of Keepsake Crystal and Pearl Earrings on Episode 521; Nina Dobrev (as Elena Gilbert) donning a Blue Frost Crystal Pendant on Episode 622, and Scarlett Byrne (as Nora Hildegarde) modeling a pair of Lilac Crystal and Gold Earring on Episode 706.
Jennifer's jewelry has also been worn by actress Bridget Newton on Episode 1120 of "Bones" and by Rebecca Breeds on five episodes of "The Originals."
Alyce n Maille jewelry has been showcased at GBK Luxury Celebrity Gift Lounges for the MTV Movie Awards, the Primetime Emmy Awards, and New York Fashion Week. It’s Not About Me TV has described Jennifer’s designs as "beautiful," while the Los Angeles Informer has called then "stunning."

TIMEX roots date back to 1894 in Waterbury, Connecticut, a time when how you made something was just as important as what you made. But the brand
came into its own in the '50s. In 1950, TIMEX brand watches arrived with the V-Conic, the first high-quality mass produced watch movement. At the end of the decade, every third watch sold was a TIMEX. AND we did everything imaginable to destroy our watches on live television each week, proving "TIMEX takes a licking and keeps on ticking."
Then in 1984, TIMEX took the clock off the finish line and put it on your wrist creating the world's first Sports Watch. The TIMEX Ironman became your coach, your motivation and a symbol of your dedication. Together, we've crossed nearly every finish line in the world.
With 1992 came the Indiglo Night Light which became the TIMEX signature Blue Backlight, revolutionalizing the way the world reads time in the dark.
The Caliber Collection
Jewelry That Gives Proceeds Back To Communities Affected By Gun Violence
The Caliber Collection from the Perfect Provenance is a unique Jewelry Collection that is working to "give-back" to communities affected by gun violence.
The oval shape of the bracelet mimics the trigger cage of a gun and serves as a reminder of the destruction that is caused when the trigger of a gun is pulled.
Each series carries a serial number that corresponds with one of the guns that were taken off the streets of Newark, Detroit, Hartford and San Francisco by the Police Department. The side of the bracelet is hand hammered to symbolize the hard work required, not only of the local police but of each individual, in the fight to get illegal guns off the streets of their community.
As a continuation of their devoted and comprehensive efforts to eradicate illegal gun violence from the streets of their city, the Detroit Police Department and Rock Ventures have collaborated with Caliber Collection to create a virtuous cycle using the serial numbers from premise weapons and metal from shell casings. The result is Caliber Detroit. Available in Rose Gold Plated or White Gold Plated; one size.
The pieces are handmade, no two are exactly alike. 20% of the proceeds from each purchase will be donated to the Caliber Foundation to support victims and communities devastated by illegal gun violence. Available to purchase at www.ThePerfectProvenance.

LAELIM and IGC Disclose
a Diamond’s Full Journey with GIA M2M
First retailer in China to participate
GIA (Gemological Institute of America) announced that Chinese retailer LAELIM Jewelry and Belgian diamond manufacturer IGC Group will pilot GIA’s M2M program that allows for complete transparency and traceability of diamonds along the value chain. This is one of the first instances where a manufacturer and retailer implemented the M2M program in partnership.
“LAELIM Jewelry is proud to be – in cooperation with the Belgian IGC Group – the very first Chinese retailer to offer diamonds that have been evaluated by GIA for its M2M program,” said Mrs. Lin Xiang, CEO of LAELIM Jewelry. “The LAELIM brand will touch the Chinese consumer’s heart as the GIA M2M will give consumers a unique buying and exclusive owner experience in a way that has never been seen before. The digital journey from mining, through Belgian excellence in diamond cutting to the creation of the jewelry piece will create a more profound understanding of the beauty of the LAELIM brand.”
A select number of GIA-graded stones from LAELIM Jewelry have been added to the M2M program, recording each stone’s story as it moves from the mine to the consumer. IGC sources and polishes the rough diamonds, which then move to LAELIM Jewelry where consumers have the opportunity to experience their story.
“The M2M platform allows us, as a Belgian manufacturer of diamonds, to share our 106 years of heritage and excellent craftsmanship with the consumer.” says Hans Clement, sales director and partner at IGC Group. “Not only are we happy to be in this project with such reputable collaborators such as GIA and LAELIM Jewelry, but we are convinced that this digital platform creates transparency and will excite the Chinese consumer.”
M2M is a digital story telling platform that brings together GIA’s unique ability to scientifically match rough diamonds to the resulting polished gems with information that tells the compelling story of a diamond’s journey.
“We are happy to have the participation of LAELIM Jewelry and IGC Group with the M2M program. Since launching in 2017 we have seen an increase in the interest of the program” said Tom Moses, executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer. “Consumer demands are shifting and provenance is becoming an important topic in the buying process.”
LAELIM Jewelry was founded in Shenzhen, China in 2011. They are committed to providing diamond traceability and upon establishment of their jewelry brand, IGC Group endorsed LAELIM in 2017. For more information about LAELIM Jewelry visit www.laelim.com. IGC Group holds a long history of diamond cutting as early as 1890. The company was founded in 1912 by the Claes family in Antwerp, Belgium. Today, IGC Group is one of the largest Belgian manufacturers. For more information about the IGC Group visit www.igcgroup.com.
An independent nonprofit organization, GIA (Gemological Institute of America), established in 1931, is recognized as the world’s foremost authority in gemology. GIA invented the famous 4Cs of Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight and, in 1953, created the International Diamond Grading System™ which is recognized around the world as the standard for diamond quality.
