Here is what Ali Brownrigg, the lovely style editor of Seattle Magazine has to say about the upcoming trunk show:

Shamila’s gorgeous work is some of the most exquisite we’ve seen—her use of bold colors, unusual stones and essentials perfect technique means that a gift of a piece of Shamila jewelry will last a lifetime.

She also selected a delectable pair of carved and faceted green onyx gem drops set in 14k gold with diamond accents as the go-to-gift for your mama! You can read the entire feature here : Mom's Day out in Edmonds.

A striking Rutilated Topaz with diamonds - the perfect engagement ring!

A striking Rutilated Topaz with diamonds - the perfect engagement ring!Rutilated Topaz is one stone I cannot keep in stock enough and that is when I am able to find specimens I like. My Kova series debuted with this special stone and I have sought them out since. This stunning piece features 7 carats of sparkly Rutilated Topaz with copper needles set in white gold and diamonds. It is so one of a kind. This ring would make a perfect anniversary gift or an alternative engagement ring for the bride who wants a center stone that is not a diamond, but rather something more interesting and with character. This beauty will be available at my shows this holiday season!
