“We are ecstatic to have made the list again this year [amongst Portland’s top 100 fastest growing private companies] and we had a great time celebrating with the other award winners,” said MiaDonna® founder and CEO, Anna-Mieke Anderson.
According to Portland Business Journal publisher, Craig Wessel, there was a record number of submissions this year as well as a record for minimum two-year growth requirements to make the list. With a growth rate of 84.89% we could not be more excited to be receiving an award again this year. A few members of the MiaDonna® team accompanied CEO Anna-Mieke Anderson to the awards party on Thursday, June 22nd. The energy at the event was high, drawing nearly 900 guests to the Hilton in downtown Portland. The night was full of laughter, networking and excitement as they counted down from 100, the local companies who had the fastest revenue growth over the last three years.
Event host, Craig Wessel, paused for a moment when announcing MiaDonna’s award to say…
“I’m always impressed with companies of [this size] that experience this high level of growth rate.”

See Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Big Engagement Ring and Small Baby Bump
By Suzy Byrne – image and article source: omg.yahoo.com
Jennifer Love Hewitt is most certainly glowing — for more than one reason!
The first photos of the star of “The Client List” have surfaced since her dual announcement last week that she is engaged and expecting her first child. At the end of May, the beaming 34-year-old actress was snapped showing off her large new diamond ring and small baby bump while vacationing in Florence, Italy, with her fiancé and co-star Brian Hallisay.
Wearing a pink-and-purple floral dress with a gray scarf and black hat, JLH was spotted resting her hand on her beau’s chest, which allowed her to perfectly display her shiny new accessory.
The TV star’s small bump (FameFlynet)And what a piece of bling it is! The large round diamond, which is estimated to be about 5 carats, sits on a single-shank band with smaller diamonds all around it. It’s a classic look that’s amped up by the petite stones. The ring is certainly hard to miss, particularly when it’s shimmering in the daylight.
To draw a little more attention to her jewels, JLH rocked a funky manicure — most of her nails were green, but the nail on her ring finger was painted a glittery silver … perhaps so that the ring wouldn’t go unnoticed?
Equally exciting was the mom-to-be’s blossomingbaby bump. Because her dress was belted, it gave a hint of her new addition that is on the way.
Hewitt and Hallisay, who smiled and gazed lovingly at one another in the pics, met while appearing in a short-lived show on NBC called “Love Bites.” They started dating 15 months ago after they found themselves working together again on their Lifetime series.
They haven’t yet announced a wedding date or due date, but can you blame them? They can barely take their eyes off one another.
Meanwhile, Hewitt’s ex Carson Daly has spoken out about her pregnancy and engagement news.
“I wish them nothing but the best,” he told Us Weekly. “I wish her healthy motherhood too. It’s so special. I’ve been just so blessed and rewarded by having children myself. I lost my dad when I was young, so being a father was always something I really wanted to do, and so it means a lot to me and I’m sure it’ll mean as much to her.”
While we do not have a ring exactly like Jennifer’s Engagement Ring, we do have several stunning designs with a similar sensibility…
If you still don’t see the exact ring you have been dreaming of our talented artisanal team is available to help you custom design your ring to your exact specifications.

JCK Las Vegas Closes, Sends Industry Home Energized and Enthused
Press Release: Jun 04, 2013 – jckonline.com
Las Vegas, NV (June 4, 2013) – JCK Las Vegas 2013 came to a close Monday, marking the end of Las Vegas Jewelry Week. The Show was largely attended, with representation from over 40 countries, between exhibitors, attending retailers and press. Product, of course, was the star of the show with all in attendance remarking on the quality and range of designs shown. As such, sales were strong and the overall vibe was one of enthusiasm end excitement for the jewelry industry and the months ahead.
JCK Las Vegas is North America’s leading jewelry show. Now in its 22nd year, the show took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino and featured collections from 2,500 jewelry industry exhibitors. Known for its extensive range and diversity of offerings, JCK is comprised of specific sections: fine jewelry fills the halls of LUXURY, Elite Enclave, Plumb Club, and Prestige Promenade, luxury timepieces can be viewed (with appointments only) at Swiss Watch, the Design Center boasts innovative, artisan-quality jewelry and the main JCK show floor is home to Watches at JCK, the VICENZAORO Italian Pavilion, Hong Kong, and India. The product, combined with a bustling itinerary of networking events, education seminars and entertainment, including a high-octane Maroon 5 performance, made the show an unforgettable, must-attend event.
With so many categories and brands available to see in one place, product trends, themes and buying patterns were easy to spot. The top trending areas were bridal (particularly twists on classic designs and custom offerings), colored stones and fashion jewelry, such as charms and thin, stackable rings. Snake and other animal motifs, as well as coin jewelry, were highly visible on the show floor. Vibrant greens, which have been trending all year, showed no signs of slowing down and were one half the subject JCK’s successful “Green or Black & White” Twitter contest.
Show attendees covered much ground thanks to JCK’s mobile app, which included a g.p.s. navigational system and a QR scanner. The QR scanner, which scans the badges of all exhibitors seen and sends a post-show report, made buyers feel comfortable moving quickly from appointment to appointment, knowing it was all being digitally catalogued for them. Also contributing to the massive ground covered, JCK’s “Meet & Greet” sweepstakes, which encouraged attendees to venture to outer areas of the exhibition space in order to drop off their sweepstakes ballots. Strong sales may have been helped by the over 500 “Show Specials” which were made available to buyers by many exhibitors.
Events focused on fashion and industry trends were also well-attended. On Saturday, The Knot, sponsor of the Show’s Bridal Lounge, threw an Engagement Party celebrating the category and filled with exclusive tips for the industry, while on Sunday, Le Vian’s® annual Fashion Show, with proceeds benefitting Jewelers for Children, showcased the hottest trends for 2014.
With so much to see and experience, feedback poured in throughout the week:
“We’ve been coming to the Show since its inception and this was one of the most successful years,“ remarked Ronald Leitzel of Mount Jewelers in Camp Hill, PA. “We accomplished a lot and enjoyed the networking with other retailers, sharing ideas and recommendations for new and interesting collections.”
“We have had a great show and been busy with appointments the entire time. Customers are confident, excited and buying again. We feel blessed to be here,” said Amir and Tamara Goldfiner of Rahaminov Diamonds.
“JCK is one of the highlights of my year to preview stunning jewelry and discover the newest trends,” said Jennie Ma, Fashion Editor at The Knot.
“JCK Rocks the Beach, featuring Maroon 5, was incredible, and I’m honored that Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company could be a part of the festivities,” shared Darwin Copeman, President and CEO, Jewelers Mutual Insurance. “We’re celebrating our Centennial Anniversary and it was fun to share the milestone in such an upbeat environment with so many of our jewelry industry partners and members.”
“This is our 5th year attending JCK and we have enjoyed the energy and creativity of this year’s show. It is always exciting to see the hottest trends, network with other retailers and soak in the newest industry knowledge at the JCK education seminars,” said Anna-Mieke Anderson, Founder and CEO of MiaDonna & Company.

The ‘pop of color’ trend continues as consumers waiver against tradition – turning away from the ‘norm’ of white diamonds in their jewelry, white walls in their homes and subdued colors in their wardrobes. Whether your personal taste leans towards traditional, vintage or modern there is no better way to make a style statement than with a POP of Blue, Pink, Red or Green.
It is exciting to see this bold color trend continue throughout the 2012-2013 engagement season, with a recent influx of requests for Engagement Rings with Ruby gemstones. MiaDonna’s Lab Created Ruby Gemstones are breathtaking – perfect in color and full of fire. Sometimes referred to as a Burmese Ruby or Pigeon’s Blood Ruby for their deep blood red color with just a hint of blue, these richly colored stones are the perfect symbol of love and can represent July birthdays, 40th anniversaries or the birth of a daughter.
The Sapphire has long symbolized truth, sincerity, and faithfulness – maybe that is why the Sapphire is the most sought after gemstone for Engagement Rings or Wedding Ring Sets. The most popular color of Sapphire chosen for Wedding Rings is Blue, which makes perfect sense since it represents everything that is constant and dependable. MiaDonna® offers a wide range of Lab Created Blue Sapphire Gemstones in varying colors from the Ceylon Blue Sapphire to the beautiful Blue Kashmir Sapphire.
For the Sapphire lover who desires a more feminine touch – the Pink Sapphire is the must have gem, representing passion, acceptance and love. MiaDonna’s Lab Created Pink Sapphire Gemstones make a vibrant statement with their deep pink color. However, if your idea of feminine isn’t defined by the color pink, the best Sapphire choice for you may be the orange-pink or pink-orange colored Padparadasha Sapphire – considered by jewelry industry experts to be the finest, rarest, most prized fancy gemstone ever created.
If you are looking to make your friends or family ‘green with envy’ then one of our deep green Lab Created Emerald Gemstones is the perfect choice for your Engagement or Wedding Ring – after all, some people believe that the Emerald gemstone can have a tranquilizing affect on the heart and mind, inspiring calm, clear assurance.
If you cannot decide which ‘pop of color’ represents you best, why not opt for the Alexandrite Gemstone. Representing love and luck, the Alexandrite Gemstone is considered by many to be the most expensive, rarest gemstone in the world. MiaDonna’s precision cut Lab Created Alexandrite Gemstones display a beautiful Purplish – Red when viewed indoors, changing to a shade of Bluish – Green as you bring it into the daylight.
At MiaDonna® each ring is hand-crafted to order, allowing you to customize your ring to match your individual preferences. Virtually every setting can come set with the Gemstone or Fancy Colored Diamond of your choosing. Our beautiful selection of Lab Created Gemstones are the most scientifically advanced, awe inspiring, precision cut, rarest colored lab created gemstones being offered to jewelery consumers. These gorgeous gems are identical in every way to their earth mined counterpart and are available in a full spectrum of colors and shapes – from the traditional Round and Square cut Sapphires to more unique options like a Marquise cut Alexandrite.
