She promotes the wearing vintage jewelry nearly as much as she supports living a strictly vegan lifestyle!

It’s the first child for the Clueless star, 34, and her husband Christopher Jarecki.

Amy Adams in Emerald Cartier and Princess Diana in Famous Emerald Choker: A May Gemstone Celebration

Amy Adams at 2011 Oscars:

Cartier Secret Watch Bracelet

The Fighter” actress wore a Cartier platinum and diamond Haute Joaillerie secret watch bracelet, which featured 575 separate diamonds and a 30.75-carat carved emerald stone.  The bracelet has been rumored to value at over $1.025 million.

Adams also wore a Cartier platinum and diamond necklace, featuring a carved 33.24-carat emerald, said to be worth $290,000. Also nominated for Best Supporting Actress was Melissa Leo, who co-starred as ‘Alice’, Micky Ward’s Mother in “The Fighter.”

Winning the nomination was the tough talking Melissa Leo, who fitting with her character in the film, let an f-bomb slip during her acceptance.

(More on Melissa Leo, and the F-bomb fly during her acceptance speech.)

The gemstone belonging to the month of May is none other than the glamorously green Emerald, a particular variety of the mineral Beryl. The Emerald is not only the May birthstone, but also the Zodiac stone for the constellation of Cancer.

Emerald gemstones are associated with patience, understanding, and foresight.

Perhaps one of the most notorious pieces of unforgettable emerald jewelry belonged to Princess Diana. Pictured here in 1982, the Emerald chocker worn by Princess Diana remains one of the most admired and adored pieces of immaculate emerald jewelry of all time. 

The famous Diana’s diamond and emerald choker, a wedding gift from the Queen. Once she caused a stir when she chose to wear it as a headband.

The Emerald gemstone is among the most magnificent. especially in the amazing jewelry worn by Princess Diana in the early ‘80s and by Amy Adams at the 2011 Oscars.

Long Live Green Glamour!

Why We Love Stana Katic: For Lovers Only, Vintage Diamond Jewelry and On The Road

Stana Katic is a Canadian-Born American Actress who is well-known as the character of Kate Beckett in ABC’s hit sitcom Castle‘, as well as her role in the upcoming film, For Lovers Only.’ The talented actress also starred in Quantum of Solace, The Librarian and the Spirit. Castle’s Stana Katic (Beckett), who recently made The Express Tribune Blog’s A to Z list of sexiest women in the world was already top notch in our book, and she just keeps getting better!

Stana Katic will be starring in the film ‘On The Road‘, a recreation of the iconic Beatnik Generation novel by Jack Kerouac. Stana will work alongside actress Kate Bosworth and actor Jean-Marc Barr, who will play Kerouc himself, among others. Yey. What better than one of your favorite actresses starring in a film version of one of your favorite novels? Not much! That’s just one reason why Stana Katic is so very top notch.

There are, of course, a few other reasons why we love Stana Katic so much. First of all, she is probably sporting one of the coolest names in Hollywood. Secondly, she is always among the best dressed for red carpet events, constantly evolving her classic style. In the images above, Static is wearing various pieces of Neil Lane Jewelry, including a Neil Lane Antique Diamond Bracelet that was an instant smash hit.

A third reason, but certainly not the last, is that this Canadian born starlet loves to research! She apparently has enjoyed her role as NYC Detective in Castle so much so that she’s begun spending time learning more about the NY Police Department, stating that she has found a whole new appreciation for law enforcement. There’s just nothing to NOT love about this gal! Talented, glamorous, stylish and down to earth.

We’re sold on Stana Katic!
