The Whimsical Royal Wedding of Beatrice and Pierre

beatrice-pierreThe recent summer nuptials of Italian television personality, Beatrice Borromeo, to Monaco heir, Pierre Casiraghi, was marked by gorgeous settings, a line-up of dresses to challenge any New York runway, and a stunning pear-shaped diamond encased in a halo setting.

It began with a simple civil ceremony at Grimaldi Palace in Monte Carlo, followed days later by a more traditional ceremony held in Stresa, Italy, along the shores of Lake Maggiore. The bride, a well-known journalist and member of the aristocratic House of Borromeo, wore a variety of gowns by such top designers as Valentino and Armani. The groom — in line to the throne of Monaco — wore a variety of tasteful suits and tuxedos ranging from gray to black.

This latest royal couple is as beloved as those who’ve come before them: Pierre’s grandmother was none other than the enchanting Grace Kelly, and Beatrice is a celebrity in her own right — holding a journalism degree from Columbia University. She’s a well-known television journalist in Italy.

The couple’s wedding festivities will not be easily forgotten. They spanned the period of an entire week and included a whirlwind of locations such as the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo and the Borromeo Islands.

If you’re planning a European wedding in the near future, you could do worse than to take inspiration from the captivating union of these two famous sweethearts. Stunning settings, elegant attire, and an A-list of guests that included royalty, celebrities, and fashion models were the earmarks of this over-the-top celebration that joined the two young people in holy matrimony. It may not exactly follow all the guidelines of a Cinderella story, but it’s close enough to captivate our hearts regardless.

Which Celebs Wear Their Hearts on Their Ring Fingers?

Heart-DiamondThe heart-shaped diamond engagement ring gained a boost recently with the announcement of the celebrity engagement of Nicki Minaj to rapper Meek Mill.  The ring — a whopping fifteen-carat yellow diamond creation enclosed in a double halo of pave diamonds is rumored to be worth a cool half-million dollars. And if that weren’t enough, Mill recently upped the ante with a double heart yellow diamond ring to match. The second ring is estimated to be worth $75,000.

And the Minaj-Mill union comes on the heels of Lady Gaga’s Valentine’s Day engagement earlier this year to actor/model Taylor Kinney. Gaga’s heart-shaped ring is also estimated to be worth a good half-million dollars. Though the value is similar, the two rings couldn’t look more different. Gaga’s ring features a single, huge white diamond in a prong setting with a diamond-studded band.

The heart-shaped gemstone has been around since at least the 16th Century when Mary, Queen of Scots is rumored to have sent one to Queen Elizabeth of England. More recently, the heart-shaped diamond has become a popular choice of stone for engagement rings among couples who aren’t afraid to break with tradition.

Part of the appeal of a heart-shaped stone is it’s ability to hide inclusions, or flaws, in the diamond. This cut is a modified brilliant that is basically a pear-cut with a notch at the center top. For this reason, the heart-shaped diamond engagement ring is often more affordable because it can feature a slightly lower-quality diamond without the visible defects.

One thing is certain, the heart-shaped ring hasn’t lost its appeal down through the ages, and with the recent surge of popularity among favorite celebrities, odds are good it won’t anytime in the near future. If it’s a heart-shaped diamond that flits through your dreams at night, we have the perfect, romantic selection just waiting to enchant.

Peridot: August’s Molten Birthstone

SS029 Sylvie Collection

SS029 Sylvie Collection

If it’s peace and good fortune you’re craving, you need look no further than the sparkling green of August’s birthstone. For at least the last 4000 years, the lovely peridot has been enchanting people the world over with its dazzling lime-green hue. And rightfully so — this stone is created by volcanic action and sometimes forms inside meteors as they travel to Earth. When magma cools beneath the Earth’s surface prior to volcanic eruption, it’s peridot that forms in the hot basalt, making this gem unique among many.

Thousands of years ago, peridot hailed from Egypt where it was called the evening emerald, but much of today’s peridot is mined in Arizona, Myanmar, Tanzania, and even Pakistan. A form of the mineral olivine, peridot gets its trademark green color from iron. Found only in shades of green to green-brown, the value of a peridot stone is measured by its clarity. If the color is contaminated with a brown hue, the stone is worth less than one that features a bright, vibrant green.

In the Hawaiian Islands that were formed by volcanic action, it’s not unusual to see sparkling fragments of peridot glittering along beaches on the island of Kauai. These fragments are too small to be of use to the jewelry industry and are such a regular site that the locals aren’t bothered by them. But in Hawaiian folklore, these tiny fragments are considered Pele’s diamonds — erupting from deep within Hawaii’s fiery goddess inside the volcano, Kilauea.

Down through history, peridot has been associated with good fortune and healing. A gift presented by Mother Nature, this elegant green stone is used for everything from pendants to earrings. A stunning accent gem for diamonds, peridot adds a handsome hint of green to any engagement ring.
