Eminem wears Alcoholic Anonymous Jewelry to Grammys

15 Feb

At MTV’s site you can see Eminem wearing the Alcoholic Anonymous Sobriety and Circle pendant. This jewelry makes a statement about Eminem’s “Recovery” from addiction.   As the article states, the pendant symbolizes ” a three part answer (unity, recovery, service) to the three part disease of alcoholism and addiction (physical, mental, spiritual)”. Here are some similar styles.

Chopard vs A $220,000 Ring

19 Feb

Multi-millionaire Anne Hendricks Bass is suing the Shangri La Hotel in Singapore, where she allegedly lost a ring worth $220, 000 while she was staying at the hotel last year.

According to court documents, she said she placed the ring on a table in the bedroom of her two-room suite at about 6.30pm that day, shortly before getting a massage.

She said two hotel employees were with her for about an hour in the room, while another entered at about 9.15pm to deliver a meal she ordered.

Ms Bass claimed she realised the ring was missing only at 10pm, when she was about to check out.

Now she's filing for damages, saying that either the hotel was negligent or its employees might have stolen the Paris-made gold ring, which had a 6.41 carat diamond.

A ring worth $220,000! Geez, these are the kind of jewelry that's totally beyond my imagination. Even in my dreams, the most expensive I've ever wished for was perhaps a Tiffany or Chopard eternity ring. Talk about different social strata!

Jewelry as Baby Shower Favors

3 Feb

During baby showers, it's not only the mom-to-be who receives presents. It has now become the norm to give out favors to guests at a baby shower party to say 'thank you' for being there and for their guests to remember the event by.

When it comes to baby shower favors, there are plenty of options that will suit every budget. The classic choices are small gift items that are baby related, but since the recipients are not the ones who will become new parents soon, it could be also be totally unrelated to babies, pregnancy or children.

If your guests are mostly women, small trinkets or jewelry will surely be well-appreciated. It doesn't have to be like the $600 pearl bracelets Tori Spelling's guests were given during her baby shower party. Choose something simple and classic in design that will be well-received by women with varying tastes. At the end of the day, it's still the thought that counts, not the price tag.

2008 Critic’s Choice Awards

14 Feb

Marcia Gay Harden is one of my favorite actresses, and I also like her style – simple and elegant. She looks beautiful here on the red carpet at the 2008 Critic's Choice Awards. Simple and elegant can also describe the jewelry she wore to that event – a coral silver lariat necklace and ruby CZ stud earrings.

Marcia Gay Harden

At the Critic's Choice awards, Marcia presented Daniel Day Lewis with the Best Actor award for There Will Be Blood.

Did you hear about The Mist yet? Marcia Gay Harden plays a religious zealot, and I hear she really contributes to the tension in that freaky movie, which is based on a story by Stephen King.

This is the gorgeous necklace she wore:

Spotting Some Celebrity Bling

Spotting Some Celebrity Bling

I just thought it would be fun to take a look at a little light on the eyes but heavy on the platinum and diamond celebrity bling. I don't think I've done that in a while. Have I?

First up is little or I should say now all grown up Hilary Duff wearing platinum jewelry by Neil Lane at "City of Hope 's 2007 Spirit of Life Dinner" in Los Angeles on September 27th. Check out this chunk of a bracelet. Hilary went with this major platinum a diamond cuff bracelet, a platinum cocktail ring, and stud earrings.

And in a different place and different time but obviously not indifferent to platinum and diamonds, Mary J. Blige picked out some platinum jewelry, compliments also of Neil Lane, to wear at the "Hot Hollywood" party in Los Angeles on September 26th. Mary selected these whooper pair of platinum circle earrings, a number of platinum and Diamond Bracelets, and a cocktail ring.

Emitations Celeb Jewelry

Emitations Celeb Jewelry
We saw lots of glam and glitter recently at the Emmy's, and who doesn't want a little of the sparklies sometimes? Normally, many stars can't even afford the diamonds and platinum they wear, let along little old normal folks like ourselves. But, they get to borrow their bling.

The idea behind Emitatons jewelry is kind of clever for those of us who have to buy or own bling. You get the celeb glam look at a price we all can afford:

Regardless of their Emmy nods (or lack thereof), the actresses at the Emmys dazzled us with their red carpet style. We'd like to honor those women who truly demonstrated grace and class with their award show fashions! Find out how to steal their style, with sterling silver and cubic zirconia versions of their award show bling. For those of us who aren't paid millions per episode, these faux jewelry designs are the perfect way to accesorize!

On the company's web site, they include some pictures of the stars, their real jewelry, and then the knock-offs, such as the honker bracelet above:

ali larter channeled the best of her Heroes characters for the 2007 Emmys – good girl Nicky would approve of the elegant jewelry and makeup, and bad girl Jessica would certainly appreciate the sexy red dress! Ali wore diamond dangle drop earrings, and her hair was worn sleek and shiny – no updo for this super-babe! She had a brilliant diamond cuff bracelet on her right hand, which perfectly complimented her pear shaped right hand ring. This piece of jewelry is worn to celebrate a woman's independence – something any of the Heroes women would be proud to flaunt!
