Pop diva Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon received a dazzling wedding anniversary gift from the bosses at cosmetics firm Elizabeth Arden – a diamond encrusted Ipad. Aside from being covered in glittering stones, the Ipad features a butterfly and Carey’s signature “M”. The stunning gift marks the couple’s second anniversary. Known to renew their vows every year, they held a lavish wedding ceremony at their Bevery Hills home on April 30th. Mariah wore a white dress and veil, while Nick wore a white suit.
Their first 2 weddings were very low key in island-driven remote spots, so they opted for a more traditional ceremony this year. Cannon mentioned that his super-star wife would be getting a third diamond ring to go with the third ceremony. Celebrating their second wedding anniversary, he told the press, “We get married every year! That’s our thing.” – then adding, “If you were married to Mariah Carey, you’d want to marry her every year too!”
Although she announced her engagement to Goldman Sachs investment banker Marc Mezvinsky back in November ’09, no one has yet seen Chelsea Clinton’s diamond engagement ring.
Rumored to be quite the sparkler, the ring was said to draw a crowd backstage at last month’s Women in the World: Stories & Solutions conference. Host Tina Brown, Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller surrounded Clinton in the greenroom at the Hudson Theater admiring her rock.
Cameras finally got a first glimpse of the gem Sunday night as the private bride-to-be attended the opening night performance of the Broadway musical “Promises Promises”. The couple is expected to wed this summer at Martha’s Vineyard.
Christina Applegate was seen flashing quite the stunning diamond engagement ring Saturday evening as she tried to avoid the paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport.
The 38-year-old newly engaged actress recently announced her engagement to rocker Martin Lenoble after 2 years of dating. Her fiance popped the question on Valentine’s Day although the 2 didn’t announce the news to their friends up until a week ago.
Her pal Alyssa Milano told US Magazine that Applegate kept her engagement to Lenoble “a secret from everyone” but that she is “thrilled” for her. No word yet on a wedding date, but she is very likely keeping that a secret as well. We wish her the very best.
Oscars 2010 had a number of surprises this year. As always, it is a great source to spot fashion and jewelry trends for the upcoming season. While some ensembles were way off target, there were a few starlets that were spot on. Ever-elegant Meryl Streep was our favorite pick of the evening. Draped in a hot white Chris March gown, those pave-set diamond and white gold earrings superbly complimented her overall look.
Reality star turned designer Nicole Richie announced her engagement today to Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden during a taping of an episode of “Late Show with David Letterman” set to air Friday night. The couple got engaged in New York on Valentine’s Day over dinner at Abe’s and Arthurs – a restaurant in the trendy Meatpacking District.
Richie’s signature taste in oversized accessories apparently extends to dazzling engagement rings as well. Featuring a 3-4 carat brilliant cut center stone surrounded by enchanting pave set diamonds, the platinum engagement ring is rumored to have cost Madden approximately $250k. After 3 years and 2 children together the couple plans to wed this summer.
On the night before she had to turn her crown over, 2009 Miss America Katie Stam was given another beauty to take its place – a stunning emerald cut engagement ring. Taking her final walk on stage as Miss America 2009, newly engaged Stam is prepared to walk down the aisle this fall.
Stam’s fiancé Biran Irk proposed to the beauty queen on Friday during a fundraiser gala. Katie told the news agencies that she has been dating Brian for nearly three years and that he’s one of her greatest supporters.
“I started hyperventilating because I was so excited,” she told People.com about the proposal. “He dropped down on one knee and he said ‘I love you so much. Will you be my Miss America forever?'”
New York City’s Firenze Jewels weighs in on four very different but influential women in politics this year, the type of jewelry they have worn and how it compliments their overall style. “You can tell a lot about someone’s personality by looking at the style of jewelry they choose to wear,” says Gabrielle Guzman, Director of the e-Commerce division at Firenze Jewels. While you may or may not agree with their (or their husband’s) philosophical views, one thing is for certain; we’ll be seeing a lot more of one of them in the future.
Current second term Senator of New York, former First Lady and former 2008 Democratic candidate for President of the United States, Hillary Clinton has worn many different hats and usually likes to wear a pearl or modest diamond necklace to go along with each. Some people tuned into the election coverage may remember that when asked a light hearted question during last year’s UNLV presidential debate about whether she prefers diamonds or pearls, she
jokingly replied “I want both”. Hillary is also known to be a big fan of turquoise jewelry, and when she’s not in the spot light she’ll usually opt for a simple gold necklace. Firenze Jewels believes that the jewelry Mrs. Clinton chooses to wear is very much like her famous trademark pantsuits, it shows that she’s confident, enjoys attention and likes to be in control.
Philanthropist, chairwoman of Hensley & Co, and potential First Lady, Cindy McCain has always been a fan of chunky beaded or pearl necklaces and/or earrings. In fact, her philosophy seems to be “the chunkier the better”. Cindy’s traditional demeanor has often been compared to that of Nancy Reagan’s, but her overall fashion style as the wife of a Republican presidential candidate is anything but. On her husband’s campaign trail she’s been seen wearing sharp red leather and copper toned jackets with bold jewelry to match. The clothing and jewelry styles that she wears
are traditional but the fabrics and colors that she chooses are not. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. McCain’s choice in jewelry and sense of fashion shows that although she chooses to play the role of a traditional Republican First Lady if her husband were elected, she certainly does not think like one.
American lawyer, Princeton University & Harvard Law School graduate and potential First Lady, Michelle Obama has been compared to Jacqueline Kennedy for her taste in beaded necklaces and she’s even drawn comparisons to Barbra Bush for her fondness over bold “pearl-like” white necklaces. Michelle has made several appearances on various best dressed lists for her sense of style. Her use of jewelry is very distinct. When wearing a contemporary outfit, she’ll usually compliment it with a more conservative looking jewelry piece and when dressed a little more conservative, she will wear something along
the lines of a long beaded necklace, a sparkling brooch or other form of jewelry that adds flair and drama to her overall style. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. Obama’s selection of jewelry and the way she employs it with her outfit, shows that she is very down to earth and comfortable with who she is.
Current Governor of Alaska, former mayor of Wasilla, and current potential Vice President of the United States on the Republican ticket, Sarah Palin has a flair for small gold nugget earrings and stretch bracelets. Many times, she’s been seen wearing a pair of gold earrings that look to be the shape of Alaska. Her trademark rimless glasses and flashy power suits have become her bold signature
look, so Sarah usually keeps her jewelry to a minimum. If she does wear a necklace or chain of some sort, it’s usually a simple chain made of gold or modest sized beads. Firenze Jewels believes that Mrs. Palin’s choice of jewelry and overall style shows that she takes pride in roots as well as her work and achievements.
