Match Your Macaron to Your Pearls.

In what we imagine was a common occurrence at Versailles (or at least Sofia Coppola's version of it), a pâtisserie and a jeweler worked together to create a collection of edible baubles. The collaboration, available from April 24th, includes the pearlescent Mikimoto macaron, filled with rose and lychee cream and a monumental Pièce Montée de Choux, a pyramid topped with small pastries filled with cream and covered in a pearly pink icing.
Inspired by the collection, we matched our favorite Ladurée flavors with Mikimoto jewelry- proving that even when this collaboration ends, you can still match your desserts to your pearls.

5 simple tips to pair vintage-style engagement rings with modern wedding bands.

Wedding season is almost in full swing. Brides, while you're frantically trying to finalize all of the infinite details for your big day (it's easy to get caught up in selecting the right flowers and the perfect cupcakes for your guests), don't forget one of the biggest things to think about is those two pieces of jewelry you'll be wearing on your left finger likely for the rest of your life.
Gone are the days of needing an engagement ring and wedding band that are an exact match. Today's trends are leaning more towards wearing what you love, even if it isn't a precise extension of your engagement ring. While you and your soon-to-be groom are likely a picture-perfect match, you're both probably different in many ways - but that's what makes you work so well together. They say opposites attract and make the best couples. You could say that the same goes for your engagement ring and wedding band.
"Making sure your engagement ring and band matches is the tradition," says Joseph Denaburg of Levy's Fine Jewelry. "But now, women seem to care more about having a wedding band and engagement ring that complement one another and get noticed and appreciated independently, instead of it looking like one big ring. The big fashion trend right now is to wear something you love, and not worry about whether or not it goes together, as long as it looks good."
