DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER...

MARILYN GOES GAGA FOR DIAMONDS!Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, and countless legends of stage and screen have been singing about DIAMONDS since music went with lyrics!   Thought to have first been seen in India between 3,000 and 6,000 years ago, diamonds have captivated the world like no other gem.  

Of course, few celebrities can match the ultimate collection of diamonds and gems amassed by the late Elizabeth Taylor  SHIRLEY BASSEY BELTS OUT HER HIT BOND THEME SONG - DIAMONDS ARE FOREVERTaylor has a weak spot for anything that sparkled and the budget (and the husbands) to make those dreamy stones her own.   The legendary actress would create a fragrance empire built around the mystique of, and her love of Diamonds.   White Diamonds remains one of the best selling fragrances in the world more than 20 years after it launched.   After her death this year at the age of 79, it was announced that Christies will auction off 300 of Taylor's gems in December.   The auction house and jewelry world are buzzing as it is sure to be one of the biggest sales of it's kind- EVER!   

With all the glamour and celebrity surrounding diamonds, it is no wonder that the mere idea of buying a diamond ring can LIZ TAYLORS INFAMOUS PERFUMEmake a guy break out into a cold sweat.   The fact is, the majority of diamond buyers are men, buying engagement rings for the love of their lives.   We all know - if the ring is bad - she might not say yes!    The fear factor is partly due to the huge margin of error that can occur when buying a diamond.   Add to that all the factors that make the stones valuable and you have a recipe for rip-offs and regrets.  

That's where The Diamond Pro  comes to the rescue!   This super informative (and free) website breaks down all the mystery and confusion surrounding this oh-so-important purchase.   From Color to Clarity, the site has all the information you could possibly need when choosing a diamond.    The site shows you what you can expect to pay for certain pieces, and also what you can buy with a certain budget.  

The Diamond Pro is a "MUST VISIT" for anyone thinking of buying a diamond.   Any friends thinking of popping the question would love for you to steer them in the direction of this website.  Even if you are not in the market for a new sparkler, it is a fascinating subject matter.   Click around the site and learn something about diamonds today.  www.diamonds.pro

ROYAL WEDDING - DO YOU?

ROYAL COUPLE - PRINCE WILLIAM & KATE MIDDLETONThe Royal wedding of the decade takes place Friday, April 29th at Westminster Abbey in London, England.   The world will be watching to see Kate Middleton step from commoner to princess when she marries Prince William , the man destined to be the King of England.   Set your alarm clocks, because coverage starts at 5am Eastern Standard Time!  CBS, NBC, & ABC will all have various forms of coverage.  To learn more before the big day, visit the official page of the Royal Wedding.

The fashion world waits to see WHO will Kate be wearing?  Vivian Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, or Stella McCartney are the major British designers that would be a stylish choice.  Okay, Westwood would be a really long shot!  McCartney would be an excellent choice - because she would be an unexpected choice and the dress would be modern.  Williamson is a long shot, but could be fabulous.  Signs seem to be pointing towards McQueen designer Sarah Burton.   The look of McQueen is fitting - very baroque and brooding - but I hope the dress is more upbeat and pretty - two things the McQueen label is not known for.   Middleton seems too modern and fun to choose anything but pretty. 

Two well known designers in London -Alice Temperley and Catherine Walker could also be wild cards in the mix.    Not as well known in the U.S., Catherine Walker was a favorite of the late Princess Diana.   Born in France, Walker made a name for herself in the U.K.   Walker passed away in 2010 after a long battle with cancer. THE ROYAL COUPLE MAKES A PUBLIC APPEARANCE   Amazingly, before her death, Walker handpicked her design team and collections themes through 2012.  

Are you planning to watch?  Many people here in the U.S. are setting their alarms early, some even taking the day off!  It will be pandemonium in central London - not to mention an extremely tight security detail due to the state of political and civil unrest in certain parts of the world.

PRINCESS DIANA IN VERSACEQueen Elizabeth officially approved the union last week - protocol in a Royal Wedding situation.   It has been reported that Kate will strike "obey" from her vows to Prince William, just as the late Princess Diana did when she took her vows with Prince Charles. DIANA DEBUT OF GALLIANO FOR DIOR

Certainly Kate will become the next darling of the fashion world.   Diana evolved into a designer dream, bringing major attention to fashion empires like Versace & Dior.

Diana was the first celebrity to wear Dior when designer John Galliano took the reigns at the iconic fashion house in 1996.   Galliano would go on to name the most iconic handbag "Lady Dior" after Diana. To find some very British fashion brands - click UK FASHIONPATENTED LADY DIOR BAG
