Yellow gold is back in style, said Pauline Beausoleil, co-owner of H. Moradi, La Jolla’s go-to jewelers for fine and estate pieces since 1999.

H. Moradi Fine and Estate Jewelers is located at 1237 Prospect St., Suite A in La Jolla.

Beausoleil, who recently returned from Miami’s annual convention for antique and estate jewelry vendors, is now showcasing a superb collection of one-of-a-kind pieces in precious metals.

“Yellow gold is really popular right now; we saw a lot of chunky gold bracelets, some with colored stones, as well as pieces that were a mix of yellow gold, white gold and platinum,” Beausoleil said. “We’re now offering some very eclectic pieces.”

Beausoleil finds that long gold necklaces (measuring 16-48 inches) are also trendsetters in the world of jewelry. “We have long diamond necklaces that are a mix of metals and a mix of colors like yellow diamonds, brown diamonds and white diamonds,” Beausoleil said.

Many of Moradi’s recent purchases are colorful stand-outs, such as a yellow and pink diamond cage bracelet and a 3-carat purple sapphire and 1.5-carat diamond ring by Kurt Wayne.

“We also have a beautiful Chopard pavé diamond ring with a happy diamond in a marquis-shaped window that’s a fun little ring,” Beausoleil said.

A stunning strand of certified natural golden South Seas pearls is another eye-catching necklace. “These are very large golden pearls of 13 to 16 millimeters on a 17-inch necklace,” “Beausoleil said.

Moradi is also featuring a platinum pavé diamond ring with an oval diamond center stone by Henry Dunay, a former designer for Cartier, and a pre-owned platinum and fancy yellow gold marquis diamond pendant by Michael Beaudry. “The Diamond is 1.45-carat, and there are white diamonds surrounding it; it comes on a beautiful diamond chain,” Beausoleil said.

Moradi is well- known for its collection of colorful animal pins, too. “We have a yellow gold tortoise pin with shells of peach and green enameling, and the tortoise is holding a bouquet of flowers made from rubies,” Beausoleil said.
