Stop whatever you’re doing because there’s BREAKING NEWS! 💖 As I forecasted (and many of you did too) the #PinkLegacy diamond sold for $50,375,000!!!! That’s $2.6 million per carat people! It is now renamed to the Winston Pink Legacy, just another record for @christiesjewels auction; this one was sold today in Geneva! The Fancy Vivid Pink hue is the strongest one in computed diamonds, and since they are naturally created under extensive pressure they are usually not clean (they probably have inclusions right in the center). On the other hand, this one is perfectly clean AND it weighs almost 19 carats. Yup. Thoughts 💭?! I’ll forever drool over this 18.96 carat Fancy Vivid Pink beauty..... If only I could find a treasure like this 🤷♀️✨
A little bit of baguettes and a little bit of gold make the best of the best 😍😍😍 I’ve been so into fun jewelry lately I haven’t gone back to basics!!! So since it’s #Friyay let me give you an update on basics 101. My best tip to buy an engagement ring is to compromise on Clarity... most of the times this is a good general rule of thumb to follow. I emphasize on the words “most of the time” and “general” because not all people are the same and not all diamonds are the same. That being said... NEVER compromise on Cut! Make sure your diamond is beautifully cut and graded excellent if possible. Caray and color are more personal choices, but you can certainly go a lower color if setting in yellow gold (it will mask the color of the diamond or else you have to go with a really high colorless) and near colorless if setting in platinum/white gold, which will bring out a beautiful tone in the diamond. Finally, try going for an SI1 in clarity if you’re tight on budget! It’ll save you a lot while keeping the diamond clean to the naked eye (blemishes will only be seen under 10x magnification!). Small tips go long ways! Let me know if they worked for you ❤️ TGIF— happy Friday everyone!!! (@icerock_diamonds).
Guess what? 💖 TONIGHT is the VS FASHION SHOW! And @hoskelsa is going to be using the $1M Fantasy Bra. This year, @victoriassecret used 2,100 Swarovski Lab Created Diamonds & Topaz to embellish the beautiful bra, totaling about 71 carats of diamonds after over 930 hours of making it. It is set on Sterling Silver, too. The lab diamonds part is a little bit controversial for the industry, but I do understand where the company is coming from. It is a way to know what the origin of the diamonds is and that they haven’t been related to conflict in the past. I am glad one of the biggest companies in the world is going for green, non-conflict, and women empowerment- all represented in a bra. However, Using natural diamonds would’ve definitely been the best alternative in my opinion (because #realisrare), but that controversy is a whole other story... and tbh, I don’t know if 71 carats of lab Diamonds on silver is really worth $1M in comparison to what would’ve been the price for naturals BUT 🤷♀️. Back to this story: The cool thing? They’re making a replica for the FIRST TIME to be sold at select stores for about $250 made with Swarovski crystals ❤️🤩. I am so excited to see it in action!!! I wish I were in NYC, but we’ll have to wait for the show to go live on December 2nd. Thoughts?!
Had an amazing day at West Palm Beach!!! 🤩🤩🤩 The best part? I didn’t even have to drive up here, my friend Erika from @chewithme and I travelled on the @gobrightline from Miami Central directly to West Palm Beach ⛱! As easy as it gets ❤️. We enjoyed coffee, yogurt, fruit, and all healthy snacks on the way there and indulged in a little bit of Rosé on the way back 🥂. Service was AMAZING (thank you Tom!) And I’m not just saying that!!! See my stories for a recap of the day where we visited two restaurants and one of my favorite jewelry brands (I had to teach Erika a thing or two about diamonds, of course!) 💎💖. Thank you Brightline for the best day!!! 🚆#gobrightline
Let me test you real quick: is this a cushion or a radiant? Or a cushion and a radiant?! 🤔 Which one is which??? Maybe you’ve got all the answers, and maybe you don’t, so read more if you want to find out! ❤️ A cushion looks exactly like a pillow, hence it’s name- it has rounded corners while a radiant has cut corners. Even though both have square/rectangular shapes, a radiant is mostly known for being elongated while the cushion is not 😍😍😍. NOW, Do you know which one is which?! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 Tell me in the comments! 💎 (@cushion_brilliant).
Can’t decide on a color? 🌈🌈🌈 Go for RAINBOW! This is one of my favorite trends lately, and while it seems like it’s “too trendy”, it’s really NOT! I think these can last you a lifetime since multicolor goes with every color, DUH! It is a fun way to add color to your outfit while keeping it classy and glamorous at the same time 💁🏽♀️. There are many many accessories in this range of hues, but as I always suggest, go for the real thing or go home! I invest in fine jewelry rather than fashion jewelry/accessories because not only they will last you forever and hold their value, but YOU will value it so much more and take more care of it 🧚🏻♀️. Kind of reverse psychology, I know, but it’s a true story 🤷🏽♀️. Now that we are closer to the holidays, some will write on their “wish” lists shoes, handbags, and clothing… but go for JEWELRY! 💎💎💎 You will not regret it!!! What would your ultimate holiday 2018 piece be? 🎁 I want to hear suggestions for what I should get next! (@majoliecollections).
NO TRICKS, just treats!!! 👻🎃👻🎃 Let me give you a fun fact since it’s Hump Day, Halloween, and an easy day after all! 👽 In the Middle Ages, diamonds were thought to have healing properties, and rituals were made with them in the hope to heal mental illnesses and fatigue. They were ingested and used as talisman in the belief that they had magical powers to fight evil, too! 💎 The wearer would be protected in battles and more, which is why the swords of soldiers had diamonds on them 😱💡. Genius isn’t it?! Moreover, they were of course used as adornments and as cutting tools because of their hard properties. After all, who would say a diamond is not the most magical substance we know? 🔮🔮🔮 Happy Halloween!!!! What are you dressing up as?? 😜 (@alec.seelig_jewelry).
Cool earrings on a Monday morning because I know we all need that extra effort to get out of bed today... don’t we all?! ❤️🌈 This type of cluster style with baguettes has become increasingly popular!!! You can see it for “solitaires”, statement earrings like these, rings, bracelets, necklaces... everything you can imagine ❤️ I saw them all over the show last weekend and I think they’re g o r g e o u s. They give the illusion of a solitaire emerald cut with a halo. Some of them are square while others have a more rectangular design... and if you’re blind without glasses like me you’d never know at a distance 🤓🤓🤓. I’m putting together a recap of the show and of the conference, stay tuned to read all about the trends I saw!!! If you’re interested in getting something like this, let me know! 😊 I might just know the right person 🤩 (@houseofkdor).
