Divorce rings. Yep, now there are rings you can wear to represent your divorce. They think of everything, don’t they?

“Mourning is not just about dead people, it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages. Today, 42% of the marriages finish by divorce in UK and 38% in France. My divorce jewellery refers to old and contemporary wedding customs to illustrate this sort of mourning. As a French, most of these customs come from France as the Bride Globe which it is a present to the bride to put her bouquet and her crown after the wedding. All the decoration inside symbolize the union and give luck to the marriage. I use union and marriage symbols and subvert them to show the inevitability of the breakup, but also show that from these ashes may raise a new life.” []

Hopefully you got a nice settlement in the divorce, because they’re over $1,000.

Check out the rings here.

I shared a picture Tabatha Coffey Tweeted of herself on the way to the Oscars. I have since found out the beautiful cuff she was wearing was a winning design from the Rio Tinto Diamonds Global Design Competition. Coffey was one of several actresses who chose a piece from the winning designs. Others included Marcia Gay Harden and Allison Janney of “The Help”.

Coffey wore “The Sands of Time” cuff designed by Vijayshree Sovani/manufactured by Interjewel USA.

See the cuff on Coffey below, along with the rest of the actresses.

I love Cartier (who wouldn’t??) Trust me, I’d rather get a red box over a blue one any day.

Check out the new commercial for Cartier–or film rather, L’Odyssée de Cartier: “a journey between dream and reality.
For the very first time, Cartier has decided to create a cinema epic focusing on its history, its values and inspiration, its artistic and universal scope.” [Cartier]
