January 30, 2012
2012 SAG Awards – Jewelry Forecast

At the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards, dazzling earrings lit up the Red Carpet. And if recent jewelry trends are any indicator, statement earrings will figure just as prominently on the ears of Hollywood leading ladies at this weekend’s 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Here are some luxurious looks from last year’s event that we wouldn’t mind seeing on the SAG Red Carpet again this year. Natalie Portman, left, and January Jones wore colored diamond earrings with grace at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards. The jewelry world is still buzzing about Natalie Portman’s stunning yellow diamond earrings. The drop earrings featured the best of Tiffany design: Magnificently cut fancy yellow pear-shaped diamonds totaling 27 carats, a crystal-clear white diamond at the earring’s base and a graceful platinum setting that magnified the rare color of the yellow diamonds. These $2 million stunners were by the far the most breathtaking jewelry statement at the 2011 SAG Awards. January Jones also chose colored diamonds to complete her look at the 2011 SAG Awards. Her 8 carat black diamond stud earrings from luxury designer Lorraine Schwartz were effortlessly rich. The dramatic pair added the perfect touch of nighttime glamour to January’s black and gold lace Caroline Herrera dress. Amy Adams chose earthy earrings from Kimberly McDonald to accent her white dress at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Our award for the night’s best modern earring look goes to Amy Adams. Her tribal-inspired earrings featured diamonds in a modern, uniquely shaped white gold setting. With an organic aesthetic and luxurious diamond borders, these Kimberly McDonald earrings added sophistication to Amy Adams’ white Hevre Leoux dress. And her ring was just as eclectically chic: With white diamonds encircling a geode, fire opal and baroque pearl, this piece made a glamorous, nature-inspired statement. A stunningly designed pair of earrings can elevate even the most beautiful Red Carpet look. We’re excited to see how Hollywood’s leading ladies accessorize at this weekend’s 2012 SAG Awards. Check back here on Monday for our recap of the night’s most exquisite jewelry. And remember: You don’t need to be at an awards show to make a Red Carpet statement. Diamond & Estate Trust’s premier collection of diamonds , colored diamonds , rubies , sapphires , emeralds, estate jewelry and signature pieces will help you find your inner luxury and sophistication.

Tom’s Toys Is the Spot for Holiday Shopping

November 16, 2011

In an effort to support small businesses across the country, American Express is asking consumers to shop local this month in honor of Small Business Saturday  on Nov. 26. And just in time for the holiday season, buyers can find shelves full of trendy and unique toys, games and trinkets at  Tom’s Toys  in Beverly Hills, a popular destination for residents and visitors alike.  As an independently owned small business, the North Beverly Drive location boasts staff who “will guide you to find exactly what you need,” said Steve Meynig, the shop’s manager since it opened in the summer of 1998. “Our employees speak Spanish, Farsi and some French.”  With the store entering its 14th holiday season in Beverly Hills, Meynig said he expects to see some familiar faces.  “Certainly one advantage of being a local business is that we get a lot of repeat business,” he said. “People have grown up with the store and while they may have grown out of playing with toys, they will still come back or refer their friends to the store.”  Unlike Betty Crocker, there was actually a Tom. Tom Williams was the proprietor of the first Tom’s Toys located in San Luis Obispo. Ted Frankel purchased that shop from Williams in 1986 and went on to open stores in four other cities. Aside from the San Luis Obispo and Beverly Hills shops, there are Tom’s Toys in Montrose and Redlands that both opened in 1996, and also a store in Santa Maria, which opened in 2009.  Why have a location in Beverly Hills? Frankel grew up in Westwood and had a paper route through Beverly Hills as a kid. The landlord made a very attractive lease arrangement to encourage Frankel to open a shop here, Meynig said.  Tom’s Toys is an entertaining place for people of all ages. Families stroll down Beverly Drive, have dinner, stop at the store and have a good time. Fair warning to parents: come stocked with quarters. Once the mainstays of old-school stores, there’s a gum ball dispenser and a mini car ride machine.  On a recent Sunday morning, Mark and Kelly Shulman were at Tom’s Toys with their three children: Jack, 11, and Ryan, 8, who attend El Rodeo School, and preschooler Ava, who is almost 5. “I love the big Lego sets,” Ryan said while Eva pleaded to ride the quarter-powered mini car. Recently relocating to Beverly Hills from Beverlywood, the Shulmans like to support local businesses, adding that they can walk to Tom’s Toys from their home. Kelly Shulman, a former first-grade teacher, said she appreciates that the store stocks alternatives to electronic and plastic toys. If you worry about giving your little ones plastic products that could contain chemical phthalates, Tom’s Toys offers a variety of wood toys. For the eco-conscious buyer, the shop carries the “Green Toys” line, which is made from recycled plastic.  Trying to keep your purchase simple? Pick up a set of jacks. In a hurry to grab a gift for a birthday party? Store employees will wrap the item for free. And what does Meynig think about the efforts to recognize small businesses this month? “We honor American Express,” he said. “As a part of the Small Business Saturday campaign, we encourage people to make purchases with their card.” Tom’s Toys is located at 437 N. Beverly Drive. Store hours are Mon-Sat: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sun: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 310-247-9822 for more information. Parking is available at the city lot at 345 N. Beverly Drive. Metered street parking is also available. Be sure to follow Beverly Hills Patch on  Twitter  and “Like” us on  Facebook . Excerpt from: Tom’s Toys Is the Spot for Holiday Shopping

Garrett McNamara Surfs 90-Foot Wave

November 10, 2011

Surfer Garrett McNamara has broken the world record for the largest wave ever surfed, a massive 90-foot wave. Surfers from California, Hawaii, South Africa, Australia and Europe are heralding the historic achievement of Garrett “G-Mac” McNamara, 44, the world’s top daredevil big wave surfer. The menacing 90-foot rogue wave, off the coast of Portugal at the North Canyon, was the height of a mid-rise office building. The record-breaking wave might have killed or injured other big wave surfers, but Garrett McNamara is experienced at surfing actual tsunami waves. Born during 1967′s Summer of Love, McNamara has surfed all his life.
