Most Epic Groom’s Cakes Ever!

There are very few things that a groom cares about when it comes to planning a wedding. And usually they all revolve around food, and maybe the beer list. My fiance fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your point of view, falls into that category. Throughout the wedding process so far, all he has cared about is the cake, or more specifically, the groom’s cake. And he wants it to look… like this.

Just how many carats can you cram into one watch?

Union Diamond Rewind! Remember this post about the five million dollar watch? Of course you do, it’s hard to forget that much bling. But just in case your memory is a little fuzzy, or you just like pictures of all things diamond encrusted, let’s rewind a bit. *Cue the time travel music!*

 

 

Every day I search the internet for interesting jewelry stories, whether it be notable jewelry auctions, pieces with fantastic histories, and maybe just a little celebrity romance. But one of my favorite things to stumble upon is a story that I can add to my ever growing collection of “My God that’s ridiculous” blogs. Examples of which would include every entry from the diamonds just don’t belong here, as well as a few additions like the lost ring found on a carrot story. I think by now you can see where I’m going with this one. But brace yourselves, because this piece makes those diamond encrusted beats look positively demure… and that’s saying something.

Just in time for the Masters: Golf ball sized diamonds!

How many of you out there had your tv tuned into the Masters to watch Bubba Watson take home his 2nd green jacket? Even if you don’t like golf, the scenery alone is worth changing the channel for. Known for it’s scenic vistas and iconic flowering azalea bushes, the Augusta National Golf Course is hands down, one of the most beautiful courses in the world. Seriously, it’s amazing and yet another reason why Georgia is one of the most beautiful states in the country. And we’re not biased… not at all. But i’m rambling a bit because something that I saw this morning reminded me of those white golf balls, but a whole lot sparklier.

The Ludwig van Beethoven Diamond

Things that make you go, “Hrmmmm”.  Purple ketchup, Ugg boots with mini-skirts, and diamonds made out of people.  They all make you pause and wonder just what exactly the world is coming to. However, here they are, and hopefully, at least for the first two, they won’t stick around for much longer. But it seems that the latter is here to stay, and I just can’t figure out whether it’s really cool, or really disturbing. I guess I’d much rather wear Uncle Tim on my finger than have him immortalized on my mantle, at least as a diamond he’d be pretty. Now, if you recall, we once brought you a similar story about a grieving dog lover who immortalized her beloved pooch Mack by turning him into a diamond, and that was unusual enough. But this one. Wow. Continue reading

The Perfect Poems and Readings for Your Wedding!

We’ve all experienced it, that moment when, as a Bride, you sit down to select the quotes and passages that will fill your invitations, programs, and even the ceremony itself. You think, “How hard could this be? There can only be one or two to choose from”. And oh, you are wrong…. so… so…. wrong. There are biblical readings and cultural readings and native american readings. Sonnets from Shakespeare, classic American poets, song lyrics, the mind boggles and there’s always that worry that your wedding will be like a scene from The Wedding Planner

“Are you aware that Fran has chosen teal for her bridesmaids? Teal, the color of gangrene. … Oh, oh, and I Honestly Love You as your wedding song? You might as well commit matrimonial suicide right now!” Continue reading

Happy Birthday April Babies!

Isn’t it amazing how the older you get, the faster time seems to move? I can’t believe that April is already speeding past, which is exceedingly sad for us, because April’s birthstone is the diamond, which is; let’s face it, our favorite thing ever! And we’re also trying really hard not to be envious that your birthstone is so amazing. So today we’re going to take a little jaunt to the past and revel in the myths and lore of diamonds.

Baseball Opening Day is Here!

Yep, you heard right. Baseball’s Opening Day is here… insert your groans or squeals of excitement here. Now, i’ll admit that i’m usually in the groaning category and that the only thing that has ever interested me in baseball is that it’s played on a diamond. But then I found out that the diamond was made of dirty and my attention waned a bit. Until that is, I stumbled upon this. A marriage between baseball and diamonds that is so wrong… it’s almost right.

Spring into color!

Happy Tuesday everybody! As they say, whoever ‘they’ are, it’s all downhill from here! I like ‘they’, they’re always full of catch phrases and sage advice. Anyways, as I said Thursday, pollen season is in full swing in Georgia. If you live in a land without this environmental phenomenon, I’m more than a little jealous. So, in order to combat the pollen funk that so many of us are assuredly in today, I bring you the good things that pollen season, or Spring as it’s known to the rest of the world can bring. Things like COLOR. And as I was perusing the cases this morning, looking for the perfect inspiration, this piece stopped me in my tracks.

Aquamarine: The March Birthstone that Brings All the Beauty of the Sea to Your Finger!

Well another month has come and gone. I don’t know why just losing one day can make a month seem so short. Any theories? I guess it’s just one of those universal truths, but the good news is that it’s March, the month of St. Paddy’s Day, March Madness, and the traditional March blizzard in GA (maybe). So I’d like to start this post by wishing all of you with March birthdays, a very Happy Birthday! And also, to tell you a little bit about your birthstone, the lovely Aquamarine. Continue reading

Happy National Proposal Day and First Day of Spring!

Spring is in the air! All around me I can hear a symphony of hacking and wheezing. Hey, it’s the south and the pollen is bad, so bad. The entire world seems coated with a thick layer of greenish yellow dust. I however, am not allergic to pollen, YAY me! So that leaves me free to enjoy the flowers and the birds chirping and what’s that I hear? A proposal? Of course! It’s the first day of spring, but more importantly it’s National Proposal Day! And yes, just like Talk like a pirate day and Cupcake day, I did not make this up. Promise.
