Who's Buzzin'

Shoes may be the final touch for guys to complete their look this season, but for a number of girls, accessories are what will get everyone talking—just as British model and designer Alexa Chung did when she helped reveal Tiffany & Co.’s creative display at the Old Bond Street store in New York. At the event, she wore the Tiffany Aquamarine ring in platinum with diamonds, Diamond cluster necklace, Fancy coloured diamond wave ring, and the Tiffany Enchant® oval yellow diamond ring. Actress Jessica Biel also sparkled when she attended 2017 Baby2Baby Gala wearing their Inside-out hoop earrings, Tiffany HardWear ball ring, and Tiffany T two ring. Just like Rihanna’s song goes, they definitely shined bright light a diamond.  

Enough about diamonds! Time to talk about time—or gold, rather. Actress Coleen Garcia joined jewelry brand F&C Co. just this year and made gold extra appealing to the younger generation. A luxurious brand with a reasonable price, F&C pieces range from 18-karat gold to delicate rings and earrings that are sure to make a statement at your next holiday party.

“No to Uncool Wool,” said DIESEL and its sheep! While this season is for bundling up, Diesel has made it its mission to rid us all of ridiculously ugly wool sweaters.

Drop by at Estancia in Capitol Commons, Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La, or Podium to see their Fall/Winter collection for 2017.
