Gems of Wisdom: Alicia Keys and a Red Ruby

“No one will take care of you if you don’t take care of yourself.” ~ Alicia Keys

I love Alicia Keys.  So does a good portion of the world.  Keys has sold over 75 million records worldwide.

Billboard magazine named her the top R&B songs artist of the 2000s decade. In 2010, VH1 included Keys on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.  Billboard magazine placed her number ten on their list of Top 50 R&B/Hip-Hop Artists of the Past 25 Years.

  1. I like Alicia’s music. Her vocal range is incredible. More importantly I think that is a great quote and I completely agree with it. Being independent is such a wonderful and liberating feeling. That gorgeous ruby and diamond engagement ring is a nice touch as well. Is that one of your designs, Calla? I love it!

    • Hi Patricia,
      Like you I appreciate Alicia’s words. She has quietly carved out a large territory in music. She’s a smart and talented musician.
      That ruby and diamond engagement ring is indeed one of mine. I actually made it for my god-daughter. She’s a strong, independent and happy woman and I am so proud of her.
      Happy Jeweler and God-Mother,
      Calla Gold
