If you see the issue with basketball star Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat on the cover, check it out!
The necklace, which can be ordered in yellow or rose gold, is adorned with over half a carat of diamonds. Click the photo to purchase from my website.
I’ve got a Diana heart design for everyone. On a budget? The necklace comes in sterling silver, without diamonds.
Or are you a vampire fan? A lot of my gorgeous clients are. They inspired me to design a Diana heart necklace that’s pierced by a “wooden stake” (actually blackened silver).
Here’s the ring version of the Vampire Diana on gorgeous blogger Beautifully Invisible.
My favorite version of the Vampire Diana design would be on my finger constantly, but it’s on display at Broken English Jewelry in Santa Monica, Calif., waiting to go to a good home. I made the heart ring in 18K yellow gold and the stake in sterling silver.
Pretty, right? But look, there’s more! You can pull the stake out of the heart.
I do love jewelry with a secret! And you don’t really have to be a True Blood or Twilight fan to enjoy this one. It’s good for anyone who occasionally feels a little stabby over affairs of the heart, and isn’t that everyone? I’ve only made one of these rings so far; whoever buys it at Broken English is going to have something very special.
You have to try one of these rings on to truly appreciate it. I like rings with heft, so I used much more metal than many jewelers would use in a design like this. People are always wowed by the feel.
My jewelry designs are often inspired by royalty, but this is the only one created in honor a modern royal: Diana, the late Princess of Wales. In 1987, at a time when many people still believed that AIDS was spread by casual contact, Diana publicly shook hands with a patient at the opening of the U.K.’s first AIDS ward. Her act dramatically changed the public’s understanding of the disease and for that, I made her my queen of hearts.
