Today, I was flipping through the Sept. 15, 2014, issue and came across an item about the recent celebrity nude-photo hacking.

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. March’s Vanity Fair — the Hollywood issue — has more information on the price of red-carpet representation. Here is […]
