Evening WearPosted: June 22, 2012
I broke out this green silky pajama shirt today for the first time. I purchased this as part of a set (I can’t wait to wear the pants with a simple white tank top!) in India when we were there in January. I think it is actually a men’s pajama set but not totally sure. Oh well!
Dustin is back from Hawaii (yeah!) so we had fun this morning accessorizing my bright green and yellow shirt with tons o’jewels!

Speaking of India! While we were buying gemstones for our designs in India, Dustin and I came upon this amazing strand of Citrine. We purchased it from a stone supplier that has very random but super high-quality stones. When we visit we sit down and say, “only show us what YOU think is the most special and of the highest quality in your stock.” He has an infectious passion for unique stones (the best of the best). With excitement he proceeds to unveil countless jaw-dropping strands of gemstones. If we could only buy them all!
This strand is special for a couple reasons: the quality of stone (over 1,000 carats! aka ridiculous), cut and perfect graduation, and clarity/extraordinary color. We had to keep them together (of course) and make one fabulous necklace. It is hand knotted with a sterling silver clasp. Stunning!
