Celebrity Gossip – Diamonds to the Rescue

by Roe Kalb

There’s no time like the weekend to catch up on some of the hottest gossip, this time courtesy of the 82nd Academy Awards.

The Oscars, which is a must event for anybody who’s anybody in Hollywood, requires the actors, actresses and various celebrities in attendance to display their, or rather their stylists’, clothes- shoes-jewelry-accessories coordinating talents, which sometimes proves challenging.

Sarah Jessica Parker, for instance, was proof that diamonds really are a girl’s best friend – especially when they happen to be the only thing to rescue what was otherwise a miserable ensemble.

Parker found herself on almost every worst-dressed list following the ceremony, with nearly everyone saying that the only thing redeeming her golden Chanel gown was the truly eye-catching jewelry.

The unusual pieces were Fred Leighton creations and were stacked mostly on her wrist: Parker wore a cluster of bracelets which included a rose-cut diamond and platinum bracelet, a cognac-diamond flexible bracelet in 18k gold, diamond bangles, and a sapphire Wave bracelet.

Other jewels which came to her rescue were flower-shaped19th-century diamond cluster earrings and an old-mine-cut diamond ring.

A stark contrast was Nicole Richie’s Reem Acra gown, which was elegant and sophisticated, but Richie has her mind on other things these days – she and longtime boyfriend Joel Madden are finally getting married.

Richie and Madden already have a toddler daughter and a baby boy and Richie seems excited to begin planning her wedding.

In a recent TV interview, Richie admitted she’s about to start flipping through bridal magazines and start making the most of her engaged status.

Madden’s seemingly long overdue proposal didn’t disappoint: Richie’s engagement ring is a stunning four-carat diamond, handmade by chic jeweler to the stars Neil Lane.
