Carmen Electra, who is no stranger to married life, recently showed up at a Casino in Hollywood wearing a gothic style diamond engagement ring. Electra is due to marry rock musician Rob Patterson.
Electra’s unique diamond ring has a black diamond set in white diamonds. Black diamonds, also known as Carbonados, are found in river deposits in Brazil and the Central African Republic.

The Red Cross in Quad Cities Metropolitan Area in Iowa was surprised to receive a box in the mail containing a diamond ring with 31 diamonds and weighing ¾ carats. The ring was found to be worth $300. The box containing the diamond ring included a simple note saying, “pawn use flood help.”
Now that’s what I call selfless giving!
The flooding of the Mississippi is currently affecting the residents of Iowa.

Presidents come and go, but there is only one Carla Bruni. The first lady of France is currently on a state visit to Israel with her husband President Nicolas Sarkozy.
The Bruni effect was felt on the couple’s arrival at Ben Gurion International Airport. Carla Bruni looked effortlessly chic in a tan colored safari dress, sandals with curious looking beetle-shaped precious stones that might have been diamonds, and a matching handbag.
As the first lady of France walked from the aircraft down the red carpet and her hair tossed in the gentle summary breeze, the glitter of a pair of stud diamond earrings could clearly be seen under her brunette hair.
Carla Bruni has apparently disappointed Tel Aviv residents who were hoping to catch a glimpse of the first lady, model and heiress. Ms. Bruni will be shopping for a new outfit in Jerusalem. While in Israel she would be well advised to shop for accessories, in a country that is regarded as a world center for diamond jewelry and diamond engagement rings.

They say that a dress is only as beautiful as the accessories that go with it. Diamond earrings are for my money one of the most beautiful accessories. When they are well chosen they really accentuate a woman’s face. Of course they should be chosen so as to match the wearer’s hair color, skin complexion etc.
As far as style, the main choice is between dangling diamond earrings, and diamond stud earrings. The later are great for special occasions and when you really want to make an entrance. The former are good for every day wearing, and are the embodiment of understated elegance.
In my last post I wrote about choosing an engagement ring. I thought I’d continue on this theme, as I am sure that there are some guys out there who’d appreciate some basic down to earth engagement ring buying advice.
Once you have checked out your girlfriend’s personal style preferences, and consulted with her friends and family, why not make up some smart excuse to go to the mall (for example, because you need help buying a shirt). Malls generally have jewelry stores, and this might give you an opportunity to catch her doing some window shopping.
When the time comes to actually make a purchase, you are going to have to gather some information about diamond engagement ring prices.
