We wanted to wish all our readers and fans a very Happy Easter and share some diamond-encrusted Van Cleef and Arpels and Tiffany&Co bunnies we came across, just because we like to look at all things sparkly and shiny (and because we would love to see these in our Easter baskets!). For more Easter fun, check out one of our previous Easter blog posts Jewelry for the Peeps.

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding Jewelry

Chelsea Clinton’s diamond engagement ring is one of the most sought-after styles of the summer, so it comes as no surprise that the blogosphere is abuzz with details about the rocks she’ll wear down the aisle tomorrow.

Will she go the American princess route in a diamond tiara like Carrie Underwood did on her big day?

Or will she keep things classic and timeless like last year’s A-list bride, Ivanka Trump?

What we do know from ABC News is that the rumored jewelry budget is upwards of $250,000 – enough to bring on even more security for the Rhinebeck, NY nuptials.

And Momma Clinton, now that she’s got better things to do than avoid a nuclear holocaust, was spotted toting that light-blue indicator of deep-pocketed taste – a Tiffany bag – to Chelsea’s building earlier today. Things are starting to look delicious already.

And while you know my favorite bridal buzz is all about the bling, this hilarious budget item comes a close second:

The Clintons are spending $15,000 for heated port-o-potties with classical music chimed in for good measure. Because what’s a port-o-potty experience without a little Puccini, right?

Stay tuned for more Chelsea Clinton wedding details! I didn’t get an invite – neither did President Obama, ok? – but I’ll be on the hunt for all the latest dish.

Speaking of, did you hear the Bristol Palin/Levi Johnston wedding may be off? You’ll never guess why…

The Jewelry Insider

October 29, 2008

With jewelry looking bigger and bolder these days, it’s no surprise that one of the industry’s famous statement makers is making her mark on the trend.

Tiffany designer, Paloma Picasso, launched a dynamic new collection – Zellige – taking inspiration from the centuries-old mosaics that surround the fountain at her home in Morocco.

The craft of Zellige combines colorful enameled tiles in geometric motifs using an almost puzzle-like pattern of open squares, angles and circles. Picasso’s line uses 18 karat yellow and white gold and features domed diamond and gemstone rings, medallion pendants and necklaces accented with black and white enamel.

“Jewelry is about timelessness. A piece of jewelry is here to stay much longer than a dress or gown. You want it to look good, fresh and modern today but you also want it to look good 30 or 300 years down the line,” Picasso explains.

The iconic designer is also a fan of the jewelry box staple. Her favorite pieces are a set of nine intertwined bangle bracelets and two pairs of simple earrings: a set of hammered gold balls and a simple pair of white gold earrings with diamonds.

Style and substance – a refreshing combination these days, no?

Lipstick, Luxury and Libations

Want a diamond with your drink? Sapphires with your spirits? The folks at Mohegan Sun Casino in southeastern Connecticut will give you just that – if you have $6200 to burn. And you just might if you visit their new Casino of the Wind, which had a dazzling opening last week.

Lipstick Jungle star, Kimberly Price, was at the star-packed launch party and left her own lipstick mark on the luxurious libation, appropriately called the Windfall. The fruity concoction is made with champagne, cognac and a bevy of berries. And the garnish? A platinum diamond and pink sapphire celebration band by Tiffany. That’s downright double down-worthy.

Mohegan’s new Casino of the Wind joins the existing Casino of the Earth and Casino of the Sky and features a 42-table poker room, nearly 30 traditional table games, over 650 slot machines – and an indoor water wall. What is a casino, really, without a water wall?

If you want your own Windfall, cash in your chips at the Leffingwells Martini Bar or Todd English’s Tuscany in the casino through October 31st.
