I’m Thinking Pink!

Now That’s What I Call Pink October!

How fitting that right in line with Pink October we see a record breaking rare pink diamond become one of the most expensive gems ever sold at a auction Sotheby’s in Hong Kong this moth.

The Fancy Vivid Purple-Pink Diamond, weighing in at 8.41 carats and mined and cut from a 19.54-carat rough by the world’s leading diamond corporation, De Beers.

Sold for $17.8 million.

An Asian private buyer bought the diamond, which Sotheby’s had mounted. Its sale shattered the former record of $10.8 million, which was set in November 2009, also in Hong Kong, for a 5-carat fancy vivid pink diamond.

Considering its impressive clarity – graded as Internally Flawless (IF) – the estimate was bound to be surpassed and it was!

Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Please be sure to wear your pink (jewels or not) this month to show your support in the fight against breast cancer. This cause is very near and dear to me as both my mother and grandmother survived it. Fight like girl and wear PINK!

XxOo,

Think PINK but Top it with Turquoise!

I happen to be a little obsessed with pink and turquoise looks on the red carpet. I don’t think it all has to do with them both being my favorite colors but rather the way the two sing in harmony while still making bold contrast statements when paired perfectly! In recent fashion history we have seen many jaw-dropping looks from leading ladies of Hollywood such as Cameron Diaz (circa 2007 in Dior + Fred Leighton) and Jessica Alba (Circa 2013 in Reem Acra + Wendy Yu / Sutra). However, recently Emmy Rossum surprised us all when she stepped out like a grown woman [that was in my Beyonce voice] at this year’s Critic Choice Awards.

See Emmy Rossum rock it in a popping pink separates ensemble from Monique Lhuillier topped off with 77 carats of oversized Sutra turquoise earrings including nearly 5 carats of dazzling rose cut diamonds and round brilliants in the halo.
