These two couples are popular celebrities in the Philippines. I will not go through the story on how their “surprise” “mob” wedding came about (just google: Carmina and Zoren wedding), but I will tell you how I came about noticing the beautiful earrings the bride wore.
A client approached me in December and asked if I saw the wedding on tv. I said I did not and she told me her sister, who lives in the US saw it. She was getting married in December and wanted a similar pair of earrings to that of Carmina’s (the celebrity).
2 weeks. I had about 2 weeks to make this pair. That, plus 2 other weddings I was preparing for. But I will never back out of a challenge. Besides, new supplies and materials just arrived from the mail and they were just sooo perfect to recreate the piece.
There were no close up photos of the earrings. The closest I got was this photo:
The inspiration piece looked like it had a large diamond stud from where a teardrop-shaped dangler hung and from this dangler, a couple of smaller teardrop-shaped danglers also hung.
The ClassicSparklers’ filigree technique was fully used on this piece. All sterling silver where diamond Swarovski faceted bicones were scattered about for that added shine. For that diamond stud, I used faceted Austrian crystals. For the smaller danglers I used sterling silver bezel set cubic zircons.

I have always been a traditional girl.
One ring on the ring finger. Both ring fingers, not in the middle, and definitely in not all!
Fast forward to a decade — to the minimalist age, I’d say. And this is what you’ll see on me:
Not at all tacky as I originally thought. Its quite a bit more classy, timeless and edgy! This fascination with stacking rings had me decide to finally bring them to the Classicsparklers brand. Most of those I first posted on my online shop have been sold and here are the three available ones:
We accept custom pieces as well*.
Nevertheless, here is what my lovely client has reserved:
These rings take some time to make so if you prefer to have one customized, perhaps as a gift for that special someone for Christmas, or for yourself, it will be best to place the order now. You can leave a message in etsy or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* But as with all online shops, some place orders and then forget about them, leaving the pieces waiting for forever 😦 That’s a little disappointing fact we all have experienced because we lose potential sales and/or customers who would want that piece for herself. We’ve all had our own share so I have made it a point to wait for a week (I’d appreciate it more if clients communicate to me that it will take them a while coz perhaps they’re on a trip or something, and in that case, I will hold the item longer than a week).
Beautiful new rings that just arrived and are ready for the shop! Here are two I’d like to share:
This features faceted peridot briolette on hammered/textured band. Peridot is the birthstone for August.
This one is sapphire quartz in a square form! Sapphire is the birthstone for September.
Sorry for the lack of posts!

By the way, the first batch of rings have been sent to our partners in India. I cannot wait to see how they will be executed because they always come out more beautiful than the original!
Thank you to all who placed their orders. We will be announcing the second batch soon so stay tuned 🙂
As I’ve mentioned before, I am thinking of starting on working with rings.
That was the first and only ring I’ve made until a few weeks ago when a client requested a ring to match the set of Filigree set she was ordering. I got excited, composed myself (which took about a week), then started to work on her ring.
As you can see, the band, without the pearl attached is quite pretty by itself! Now, this I will definitely make one for me 🙂
Oh, did I mention that the client loved the Alexandrite ring that she ordered one for herself as well? Here is hers:
