Wedding Wednesday: Colored Bridal Jewelry

If we can use one, and only one word to describe this season’s must-wear wedding jewels, it’s this: Color, with a capital C.

Brides-to-be across the globe are going gaga for precious stones in every hue of the rainbow. From Brides to The Knot, the powers-that-be in the wedding world have shouted their support for this colorfully gorgeous trend. Raymond Lee Jewelers is South Florida’s first and most trusted source for luxury pre-owned precious gems, and we’ve found a stone for every bride in love with both their groom and Roy G. Biv.

Rubies

Rubies are incredibly rare precious gems prized beyond diamonds in some cultures. The most desirable rubies are called “pigeon blood” rubies which, admittedly, is pretty gross, but the color of these stones is incomparable. Brides who wear rubies down the aisle are passionate, fiery and luxe. “The ruby definitely is something to smile about for its exquisite beauty when set as jewelry, and because the ruby also stands for peace and contentment.” – admirable attributes of any marriage.

Topaz

Topaz are the birthstone of the month of November and are famed for their amber hues, but they range in color from pink, yellow blue, peach, gold and even green. Like diamonds, topaz are graded by the 4 C’s, and are impossible to identify with the naked eye when compared to look-alike Citrine. Orange topaz represent constancy, loyalty, faithfulness and strength, making them an excellent choice for wedding-day jewels.

Yellow Diamonds

 Once thought to be inferior to just plain ol’ regular diamonds, the yellow diamond (or Fancy colored diamond) has quickly leveled the playing field with its crystal clear cousin. Celebs, perhaps most noticeably Mr. Gucci Mayne, have popularized fancy and intense colored yellow diamonds, leaving brides-to-be clamoring for this stunning, sunny rock. Tiffany & Co., in honor of their famous Tiffany Yellow Diamond jumped on this timeless yet trendy bandwagon with a slew of lovely yellow diamond jewelry.

Emeralds

With gorgeous deep green all over the runways this season, no stone is more Fall-ready than emerald. These gorgeous stones dazzle in pure green and shine with uniqueness. Emerald green is “…the colour of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the colour of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love….
The magnificent green of the emerald is a colour which conveys harmony, love of Nature and elemental joie de vivre.”

Sapphires

For fast approaching September nuptials, why not wear next month’s designated birthstone? Sapphires come in a variety of colors naturally, including pink, but are famed for their gorgeous blue tones. It is believed by some that sapphires “promote joy, faith, hope and protection during long journeys.

Amethyst

Cartier 18kt White Gold and Amethyst ring

Gorgeous amethyst stones range from lavender to royal purple in color; it is the stone associated with nobles from Catherine the Great to the ancient Egyptians. Its name is derived from the Greek word for “not drunk”; even if your jewels can’t steer your hubby’s fraternity brother groomsman away from the bar, rest assured that your guests will only be focused on your stunning purple gems. Amethyst, according to Leonardo Da Vinci, “holds the power to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken one’s intelligence.”

Brides-to-be, are you planning on donning colorful jewels for the big day? Did your fiance gift you with a colorful engagement ring? Discuss in the comments below!

Christina Applegate: New Mom and New Leading Role in NBC Sitcom,’Up All Night’

Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate is a proud new Mommy of baby girl, Sadie Grace. The Actress who most recently has been recognized as the main character in ‘Samantha Who?’ is about to star in a recently picked up sitcom for NBC, ‘Up All Night.’ The show will premier this Fall, and while admittedly  exhausted from her first few months of Motherhood, Christina Applegate says she is excited to be back to work.

Fiance Martyn LeNoble and Christina Applegate had their first child, Sadie Grace on Thursday, January 27th, 2011.

An Event was held in New York yesterday by NBC at the Hilton Hotel. The NBC Upfront Presentation celebrates the new and returning shows to potential advertising clients. Applegate arrived in a classic and understated style. She wore a knee length white and beige dress with a matching cardigan and brown leather belt. The simple jewelry and light wedged shoes completed her classic look.

The upcoming comedy pairs the actress alongside former “Saturday Night Live” player Maya Rudolph and “Arrested Development” funnyman Will Arnett.

“It’s basically who we are anyway,” Christina told Access Hollywood on Monday, explaining the show from former “SNL” writer Emily Spivey and “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels. “[It’s about] being a parent and [balancing] work, and, all of us. It’s kind of us.”

Christina stars as public relations executive Reagan in the show, Will plays her stay-at-home husband, Chris, and Maya plays Reagan’s outlandish boss and best friend, Ava.

This summer is all about coral, turquoise and marigold. I happen to be a big fan of coral, and just as coral jewelry and vibrantly colored coral ensembles are on the rage for the upcoming heat waves… The same can be said for lip gloss, stain and blush.
