THE JEWELERS MALL IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Update December 4, 2012 The Jewelers Mall in downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of the
downtown Los Angeles jewelry district is open to the public and during the holidays The Jewelers Mall is open 7
days a week. After the holiday season, The Jewelers Mall will return to its regular schedule of being open six days
a week and closed on Sundays. There are more than fifty independent jewelers in The Jewelers Mall and each operates
their own private store -- and these are not booths so you are assured of privacy and security. And because all
of the stores are private and independently owned you can do comparison shopping across a full range of quality jewelry.
The Jewelers Mall is also very careful about making sure that only high quality and responsible jewelers
operate there and most of the stores have been operating for 15 years or longer at The Jewelers Mall. You will find
specialists for engagement rings, wedding bands, pearls, diamond jewelry and loose diamonds. And in the basement of
The Jewelers Mall is a restaurant and shops where you can have jewelry and watches repaired and customized.
What most customers like is that The Jewelers Mall has its own parking garage above the stores and this
means you can take an elevator directly from the stores to your parking level and your car. In addition to the direct
route to parking, there is also security throughout the building. Parking rates are reasonable. Our Best Buys
TV Show report is below.

PARISIEN HAS THE FASHION ALTERNATIVES FOR MEN'S GOLD AND
PLATINUM WEDDING BANDS
Update October 24, 2012 In the downtown
Los Angeles Jewelry District you will find La Parisien Design Company which is a true gem of a discounter. La Parisien
Design Company not only offers great values and great designs on traditional 18kt and 14kt gold and diamond wedding bands
for men, but it also offers the new fashion alternative metals for men's wedding bands. These alternative metals include
cobalt and tunsten carbide. Two things in particular make cobalt and tunsten carbide so appealing and they are their
low cost and their durability and resistance to scratching.
Based on today's gold
price, cobalt and tunsten carbide wedding bands are priced at about 10% of what similar designs would cost in white gold or
yellow gold. But unlike gold, cobalt and tunsten carbide wedding bands are not easily scratched and will keep their
"like-new" appearance for years to come. These alternative metal bands are also heavy and feel like platinum
bands. Cobalt and tungsten carbide wedding bands can also be set with diamonds and gemstones. With traditional
gold wedding bands sometimes costing $1200 or more, these wedding bands made of cobalt and tunsten carbide not only make sense
but are growing in popularity.
Parisien carries a full line of wedding bands by Goldman
and other premier jewelry design houses.
Parisien also carries unique jewelry designs
including the new micro pave diamond jewelry with each fine piece of jewelry artistically created with several hundred sparkling
diamonds. These represent the new look for pave diamond jewelry. You will also find unique settings for diamond
engagement rings and diamonds with GIA and EGL certification are always discounted. Financing is now being offered.
