    Summer Hair’s Best Friend Bob

    Bobby pins. Yes, bobby pins. Bobby pins are essential for creating great summer hair styles. Whether you pull part of your hair up or all of it- a few well-placed bobby pins can help to keep your hair where you want it all day. Place the wavy side of the bobby pin next to your head to get the best grip. Don’t worry about using too many of these little gems either, they will disappear into your updo and almost completely.

    Elegant Earrings

    Earrings are the single most important thing for summer hair. Say goodbye to the washer-woman look instantly. Pulling your hair up can look instantly glamorous with a great pair of earrings. Dangle earrings are very sexy, post earrings are elegant and hoop earrings are fun. Earrings are essential for turning summer hair into a positive and looking finished and put together.

    Smoothing Gel

    Smoothing gel rather than too much hairspray is a great way to control all the wispy hairs created by the humidity.  Place smoothing gel (also sometimes called styling crème) on your hair while it is slightly damp and then put your hair up. An added bonus to smoothing gel is that your hair will remain soft and silky to the touch.

    Pendant Necklace

    Pulling your hair up with a plunging neckline begs for a fabulous necklace. Like earrings, a pendant necklace will leave you cool in the heat and make you look put together and sexy at the same time.

    Divide and Conquer

    One of the secrets to great looking summer hair is to part your hair into sections while you are putting it up. Use a few large hair styling clips to hold the hair you aren’t working with at bay while you put the other sections of your hair up. The result will look more professional and even. This is also a great trick if you have less hair than you would like and you want to make your updo look sexy and full.

    Long Chain Necklace

    Another Fabulous look with an updo is a long chain necklace. Delicate and feminine a long chain necklace is a great way to add casual style to any summer outfit.

  • Jewelry for Him from GDS

    Celebrating Him is just as important and treasuring Her!

    Today’s men are sophisticated, stylish and elegant and there is no better gift than jewelry for him. Here are just a few reasons to think about jewelry the next time you are shopping for your man.

    Jewelry is Intrinsically Valuable

    We all love the way jewelry looks but it also has real value that stands the test of time. Unlike electronics or clothes of a thousand other things-when you give a gift of fine jewelry to a man, he will still have it in 2O years and this means a lot!

    Men’s Jewelry is a Unique Expression of His Individuality

    In a world filled with mass produced everything it becomes very difficult to separate your sense of style from the pack. Men’s jewelry is one way to do this. Adding a pair of cufflinks for example is like adding a breath of fresh- air to a beautiful suit. Stylish men’s dressing is all about the details and cufflinks or a tie clip allow a man to make a suit his own.

    Gems & Minerals are Just Fun

    About 90% of geologists and rock collectors are men. This is because gems and minerals are both fun and interesting. Geology is an artful blend of physics, chemistry and history. Precious and semi-precious stones are the kings of geology. Men can wear larger stones than a woman and they look absolutely fabulous. If your man loves rocks, it’s time to introduce him to Jewelry and the wonderful diversity of gems that are available in jewelry designs for men. This is an amazing world and GDS located in Clearwater, FL invites you to come into the store and explore!

    The Pink Sapphire is a cousin to the more well known Blue Sapphire. Like Blue Sapphires, Pink Sapphires are sought after as gemstones due to their hardness, clarity and brilliance. Pink Sapphires come from the same gemstone family, Corundum, as Rubies. Sapphires also come in a variety of other colors including yellow, purple, green and even black. The pink-orange, Padparadscha Sapphire is a very rare subset of Pink Sapphires.

    As delicate as a new bride and as bold as the sea, this exquisite Juleve Bezel Set Oval Pink Sapphire weighing 2.55 carats is accompanied by 0.42 carats total weight Round Diamonds. A Filigree & Milgrain Design crafted from 18 carat white & yellow gold makes this a piece to remember.
