Elisha Cuthbert Premiering Tonight in new ABC Series, and Rocks a Red Vawk Dress at 2011 Heart Truth Fashion Show

Elisha Cuthbert: Premiers as Comedic Lead on Tonight’s Premier of ABC’s ‘Happy Endings

You may remember this Canadian Beauty as Kim Bauer, the daughter of Jack Bauer in the infamous FOX Series, 24.  If you weren’t into real-time counter-terrorism plots, perhaps you’ll remember her as the sultry ‘Girl Next Door‘ in 2004. The lovable Miss Elisha Cuthbert also played the role of a soon to be replaced lead singer in the 2005 music video for ‘Perfect Situation‘ by Weezer.

On tonight’s premier episode Elisha will be appearing as Alex, the leading female role in ABC’s new comedic-romance series, Happy Endings. The pilot is rumored to kick off with Alex, the 22 year-old character played by Cuthbert, running from the alter on the day she is to marry long-time boyfriend Dave. Zachary Knighton will be playing the role of Dave on the Wednesday night premier of ABC’s Happy Endings. The six-person ensemble cast will also include the strong acting skills of Eliza CoupeDamon Wayans Jr., Adam Pally and Casey Wilson.

 

ABC's Ensemble Cast: Happy Endings

While admittedly against their own initial hesitance for another Friends carbon copy sitcom, critics are reviewing that the ensemble cast is stronger than those we’ve seen within the last few years.  The premier of Happy Endings will air tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30C, after Modern Family. Elisha Cuthbert has announced that her upcoming role as Alex in Happy Endings is the edgy, comedic new  role that she’s been waiting for.

Last month, Canadian-born Actress Elisha Cuthbert wore a one of a kind mini-dress by Vawk on March 24th for the fourth annual Heart Truth Fashion Show in Toronto. The Carlu in Toronto was the venue providing the catwalk on which Cuthbert strutted the daring red mini by Vawk, amongst several other celebrities taking part in the Heart Truth Campaign.

Famous faces at the Toronto Fashion Show for Heart Health Awareness included Suzanne Somers, Eve, Dania Ramirez, Denise Richards, Audrina Patridge and Camila Alves, girlfriend of the encouraging Matthew McConaughey. Not all styles were as dangerously draped as Elisha’s deep red mini by Vawk, as a demure Denise Richards was sporting a ’70s socialite look in an empire waist dress by Matthew Williamson.

Celebrities were styled in a wide array of red designs, fabrics and cuts in a deliberate effort to draw National attention to Heart Truth. Each gowns, dress and mini worn in the Fashion Show were of the same constancy in color, derived from deeply embedded red hues and sweeping saturation.

In our own virtual way, we would like to contribute with the same fluidly ruby consistency to the National awareness of Heart Health. Here are a few select pieces of incredible jewelry in which we would have chosen to be part of the fashion event in Toronto… If time travel and a DeLorean were readily available, that is.

Diamonds: A History

The word diamond comes from a Greek word that means unbreakable.  A diamond, which can only be cut with another diamond, is the hardest substance on the Earth.  Because of its natural and physical characteristics it has been one of the most sought after gemstones of all time.  In today’s day a diamond is a commodity that can be traded and is graded based on its carat weight, color, clarity, and cut.  Most diamonds can be found in rings, specifically diamond engagement rings.

History points to the first references towards a diamond in India in the 4th century BC.  Until the late 1700’s and early 1800’s India remained the premier place for diamond exploration.  After diamonds became more popular the search for new diamond reserves was on.  Soon after, South Africa became the worlds number one diamond excavation center of the world.

Even though most diamonds come from South Africa these days, the majority of them are still cut and shaped in India.  It is approximated that this number is as high as 90% of all diamonds go through India.  They are traded, however, in Antwerp, Belgium, which is known as the diamond capital of the world.

As the demand for better looking diamonds became more prevalent in the recent century, scientists have invented the technology to synthetically create flawless diamonds.  They have the same visual characteristics as diamonds that come from the ground.  Still, diamonds that are of equal quality naturally are worth more than synthetic ones.

There are four main characteristics that go into grading a diamonds.  The carat weight, color, clarity, and cut.  Carat weight is how much the diamond weighs in carats (a unit of measure).  The color is based on a scale from D-Z with D being the closest to colorless.  D, E, and F are said to be colorless while G, H, and I are said to be near colorless.  Clarity is based on a scale that is a little more confusing.  The best clarity grade a diamond can get is Flawless, although this is very rare.  Next is internally flawless (IF), followed by VVS1 and VVS2, then VS1 and VS2, SI1 and SI2 and I1, I2, and I3 round out the bottom.  VVS stands for very very slightly imperfect, VS stands for very slightly imperfect, SI stands for slightly imperfect and I stands for imperfect.  The final grade is the cut, or the shape.  Round diamonds are the most popular and the most expensive compared to a diamond with the same weight, color and clarity with a different cut.  Other cuts include princess, rectangle, pear, and trillion.

Through the test of time it seems the diamond will remain atop all gemstones in terms of desirability.  As long as diamonds are a girls best friend jewelry stores like Raymond Lee Jewelers will continue to stock them.

Diamonds: Not Just a Girls Best Friend in Boca Raton

The birthstone for the month of April is Diamond.  The hardest substance known to man.  In fact the word diamond comes from the Greek word adamas, which means unbreakable.  The first diamond was discovered in India during the 9th century B.C.  India was the worlds only source for diamonds until the year 1725 when diamonds were first discovered in Brazil.  Since then diamond deposits have been found in South Africa, Australia,  Russia, Canada and even the United States of America just to name a few of the nations that produce diamonds for the global market.  Despite the fact that diamonds seem to be found all over the world very few are actually worthy of being considered gem quality.

Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers  in Boca Raton, Florida, we have a large selection of diamonds in all sizes.  We pride ourselves in having the best selection of stones in all sizes and the best quality.  We also have a strong selection of Canary, Champagne, and even Chocolate diamonds.  We have a beautiful assortment of mountings.  If you have a diamond and would like to change the setting our design specialist is on hand for a free consult.  Just call Richard to make and appointment.  Looking forward to working with you soon.-
