The highly anticipated video of the official FIFA World Cup 2014 anthem will feature movie star, singer and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez. Aside from the beautiful star that she is, you will certainly take notice of her usually elegant fashion sense. You may wonder what her jewelry is. In that video, Jennifer wears Chimento. Chimento's designs have a touch of glamor every single time. One of its collections, the "Red Carpet," says it all. The intricate designs of the Red Carpet and how the stones are placed to form a coherent beaded pattern make it a feast for the eyes. For the more conservative and classic, it has the "Traditional" collection that reminds the world that simplicity is beauty after all. But Chimento isn't just for the woman, but also for the man. The men's line is subdivided into two collections: the "Trendy" and the "Classic."
Chimento is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.

Ever used jewelry as a way out? One guy does just that!
His girlfriend requested him to take her to Rock City, a place that boast of an impressive rock formation, to celebrate their upcoming anniversary. The girl had a passion for geology and Rock City boasts of a marvelous display of quartz rocks.
The girl was looking forward to sharing her love of quartz with her boyfriend, but a geology lesson wasn't exactly what the boy envisioned for an anniversary date. "You don't understand," she said, "you have to see an actual quartz just to get the full feel."
On the day of the anniversary the boy surprised his girlfriend with a Chimento rose quartz ring. "Just so I can get the full feel," he said. "I love it!" exclaimed the girlfriend, before adding, "who needs Rock City anyway!"
"Close call," thought the boyfriend. Chimento's Elisir white gold ring, rose milky quartz and white diamonds are available in Shreve & Co. at Post Street, San Francisco.
