Fall for Gemstones

October 22, 2008

This week’s homepage is not only an homage to Halloween, but also to gorgeous gemstone jewelry. With winter approaching, it seems like a nice time to inject some color into your wardrobe before the icy months hit. I think this is also a great time to wear autumnal hues like oranges, browns and yellows, so definitely take a look at the Stephen Webster cuff and Stephen Dweck necklace featured on the main site.

I couldn’t let this post pass, though, without mentioning the newly released Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra. I have a personal connection to the high-priced lingerie: I worked with one of the companies that used to design and manufacture the bra, so I have gotten to see the pieces up close and personal. I even acted as Gisele Bundchen’s liaison the year she wore the bra–-I accompanied her to TV appearances, dressed her for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and even appeared on the Tyra Banks Show to talk about the $12 million bling.

(Photos to come! I’ll post a few of me backstage at the big event.)

This year’s bra was produced by Martin Katz and is worn by Adriana Lima. It’s a departure from the norm because instead of the standard white diamonds, Katz created a daring black diamond and ruby look that fits in perfectly with the upcoming ode to ghosts and goblins. Set with 3,575 black diamonds (include two stunning black diamond drops totaling 100 carats), 117 one carat diamonds and 34 rubies, the fantasy undergarment is for sale for a cool $5 million.
