NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Estate Jewelry, a luxury sterling silver repousse jewelry company based in Baltimore, Maryland, announces the launch of its new "Sparkling Chrysanthemum Collection," available exclusively for Holiday 2012 at AmericanEstateJewelry.com.
This chic collection of hand-chased silver and gold cuff bracelets, earrings, necklaces and cocktail rings expands on the company's signature sterling silver repousse designs by adding sparkling faceted red carnelian cabochons, brilliant clear topaz and natural quartz, each priced from $400 to $1,800.
Among these new pieces are festive ornamented cuff bracelets, each embellished with red carnelians or clear natural topaz such as the "Sparkling Chrysanthemum Cuff" and the "Sparkling Sconset Roses Cuff." American Estate will continue to offer the Chrysanthemum Cuff in its classic design with blue cabochon sapphires and the Sconset Roses Cuff in Pink Tourmalines.
The Sparkling Collection follows the successful launch of American Estate's popular Natural Crystal Quartz Bamboo Collection, with its ornate and distinctive designed pieces made of fine sterling silver and natural quartz.
"We've been so pleased by the success of our Bamboo Collection, with its natural sparkling quartz, that we were inspired to add more bling to the collection for the Holidays," said American Estate's Founder and President Carolyn O'Keefe. "The Bamboo Collection with natural crystal quartz (priced from $400 to $1,000) is a favorite among national fashion editors with its intricate nests of silver topped with sparkling natural stones."
When it comes to the inspiration behind the Holiday collection, O'Keefe envisioned a collection that would be a dynamic balance between classic beauty and high fashion. "The Holiday trends are all about sparkle-meets-ladylike," said O'Keefe. "From Tory Burch's Glen Plaid sheath with sequins to Chanel's metallic nail colors or Valentino's Bronze Bow Pumps, top designers are adding a pop of sparkle to classics that women will wear year after year."
O'Keefe and her team will be offering the new timeless luxurious repousse silver pieces with natural sparkling stones throughout the month of December. "These stones," she says, "are not the typical CZ's or crystals but are all natural and of the highest quality. Bottom line our jewelry is an enduring work of art for generations to enjoy; so it's got to be real. But real doesn't mean stodgy."
Each piece is designed and created by the legendary silver master Michael Galmer of Galmer Fine Silver and is hand-chased of the finest silver using the difficult-to-master repousse method for sculptural beauty and lavish floral detail. Galmer, who is internationally recognized for outstanding silver craftsmanship as one of the world's most talented artists, has been creating beautiful sterling silver masterpieces for more than 30 years. Galmer is best known for his ornate and intricate designs commissioned extensively by Tiffany & Co., museums and elite historical societies.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
