Hard labor has its perks. New mom Rachel Zoe got one doozy of a ‘push present’ from hubby, Rodger Berman – a 10 carat cushion-cut right hand ring from celebrity designer, Neil Lane!
“Rodger wanted to surprise Rachel with something romantic — and huge,” Lane told People.com of the sparkler, which is surrounded by smaller diamonds in a platinum setting. “I knew she’s wanted a cushion cut forever. It was their first baby and she’s been working so hard that Rodger wanted to do something very special. Rachel was thrilled and hasn’t taken it off since!”
Cushion-cut stones have becomen the ‘must-have’ look among the celebrity set and bridal crowd the past few years.
“A lot of it has to do with Hollywood,” president of New York manufacturer J. Birnbach told National Jeweler. “Celebrities have been embracing the cushions and the Asschers for the last couple years.”
Famous brides like Ivanka Trump, Alyssa Milano and Anna Paquin each received cushion-cut engagement rings. And we’re seeing A-listers like Penelope Cruz wear cushion-cut jewels to big events like the Oscars.
And if it will ‘cushion’ the blow of the baby blues – I’m all for it.
