Tweet A big thanks to Inside Weddings magazine for including my Marie Antoinette earrings in the Spring 2014 feature on purple gemstones. Remember, this is the year of Radiant Orchid! The story says: “Top off spring bridal styles with luxurious violet-hued jewels and gemstones.” I think that’s a great idea. Color livens up a traditional […]

Tweet Cancel your subscription to me if you want, but I think putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the April cover of Vogue is the most interesting move the magazine has made in a long time. This is a much more newsworthy choice than, say, an actress who is shilling her next movie. (Did […]

Tweet Hip-shaking cover girl Shakira is wearing my rose-quartz Venus ring in a feature in the April 2014 issue of Women’s Health. Exciting! Ah, I remember when Shakira’s video for “Whenever, Wherever” came out in 2001 — I couldn’t take my eyes off her! I’ve never seen her in concert but I did see her […]

Tweet In my paean to Elizabeth Taylor’s relationship with jewelry, written after the star’s death in 2011, I mentioned that celebrities today are sometimes paid to wear jewelry, unlike Dame Elizabeth, who owned her own diamonds.

Tweet The clearing out of my childhood home continues to yield all kinds of Throwback Thursday material. The latest is a page from a 1998 issue of New York Magazine. Gael Greene reviewed a restaurant called Pondicherry; her blurb was accompanied by a blurry photo of me and my gorgeous sister, Terri Berry. (We’re at […]

Tweet Clicking around the Interwebs, as one does, I came across an old Rolling Stone magazine slideshow of its “pop diva” covers. The 29 images include the iconic Britney Spears and Janet Jackson covers, of course. Mariah Carey’s cover might be the best she’s ever looked. One of my favorites is this playful 1989 Herb […]

Tweet I got a nice mention in the September issue of Jeweller Magazine, a jewelry trade magazine for Australia and New Zealand.  The story by India Nicholson is about jewelry with secret compartments; it really gets into the history of this type of design: I was pleased to see a mention of a locket ring […]

Tweet I was reading music magazine The Fader’s cover story on rapper Mac Miller and the first anecdote resonated with me. The story starts with Miller hunting for copies of his second album, Watching Movies with the Sound Off, in Target, the day after the album’s release. The store nearest his home in Los Angeles […]

Tweet When I was in London last month, I found a great magazine about ’80s music called Classic Pop. I was excited to find a long article about the late graffiti artist Keith Haring in it, particularly because of this 1984 photo of Madonna in a Haring “boy toy” painted denim jacket. This photo made […]
