Who wouldn't want to strut their stuff in the office?

Thanks to our friends over at Marie Claire, we got a behind the scenes (or should I say closet doors) look at what really goes on over there! I love the catwalk they did right next to the cubicles! It doesn't get any more diva than that! This gives me an idea to show you all what really goes on over at LBG!

ETSY Find of the Week: Ring of the month club

This week we discovered a brilliant idea... What you might ask???

A ring of the month club!!! You can choose to do a three or six month stint and every month you will receive a new ring, customized to your style in the mail!

According to Cookoorikoo, store owner, "these rings are made with vintage jewelry and findings. i sometimes replace missing stones but most of the time i let the item's well worn love shine through. because of this no two rings are identical. each one is special in its own chippy, sparkly way."

Sounds like I am sold!

So you wanna be a model????

Calling all aspiring models: V Magazine and Ford Models have joined forces to find the next big thing in the modeling world. Do you think you have what it takes to be the next Gisele or Heidi? Well if so, you just might just be the next winner!
Last year's winner, Amanda Laine has since worked with
Calvin Klein, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, and Balenciaga.
So start your engines ladies and start submitting your
best "taken in your bedroom, sexy, I wanna be a model" photos!

A Pocketful of Sunshine

Jen here... I spent Saturday at a photo shoot with the lovely and talented singer, Natasha Bedingfield, made famous for her song "Unwritten" the theme song for The Hills.

LBG supplied the fabulous jewels for Signature LA Direct Magazine who is featuring Natasha as their May cover story. The issue hits stands in a few weeks. Look for our amazing designers to be featured.

Natasha was such a blast to work with and knew how to strike a pose...

Bulgari 125th Anniversary Campaign

Bulgari has decided to celebrate their 125th anniversary in a very charitable way. They have teamed up with the Save the Children charity to create the Rewrite the Future Campaign.The campaign is aimed at providing education to millions of children suffering from war and conflict with a donation of 10 million euros by the end of the year.

The ring is a silver ring (rare because Bulgari usually only works with gold) with engravings. The purchase will contribute $60 of the total cost of $290 to the Save the Children charity.

Bulgari has enlisted the help of many celebrities for the ad campaign such as Debra Messing, Ben Stiller, Jason Lewis and Terrance Howard.

Laurie Hudson in Jewelry Book!

Our very own Laurie Hudson recently wrote an article for Jewelry Book on what we can expect for the jewelry industry this coming year. Laurie is full of knowledge and this article really speaks truly to that. Read the article in the Winter 2009 issue of Jewelry Book.

GET THE LOOK: Academy of Country Music Awards

To get Carrie's look, look for an earring that has sparkle, length and a wow factor. Visit for this earring and more.

To get Kaley's look, look
for fun, bright, and different style bangles. Mix it up! You don't have to wear gold with gold and silver with silver! Wear silver with gold and throw in some pink while you are in there! (from left to right: Juicy Couture bangle, Forever 21 bangles)

For Taylor's look: look for an earring that has a heavier bottom then the top. A dark colored stone is all the rage. Micheal M has a beautiful pair (shown above) that basically match Taylor's look! visit
