Hand-crafted by Jostens Championship Design Team, many are convinced that no other NFL team has ever received a ring of such exquisite detail as the Ravens’ XLVII super bowl ring. This bling-bling ring contains 243 round cut diamonds totaling 3.75 carats of diamonds set in 10k white and yellow gold. The Ravens logo is displayed in the center of the ring surrounded by 40 round cut diamonds. The logo was created by custom cutting a purple amethyst stone, using yellow gold to create the “B”, white gold for the beak and red enamel for the raven’s eye. Behind the logo are two Vince Lombardi Trophies made from 32 round diamonds and topped with two marquise cut diamonds weighing .75 carats. The Ravens president Dick Cass stated that all of the “players, coaches and staff were excited when they received their rings, which symbolize our Super Bowl Victory”.

Who would have thought that an individual so desperate for money would have returned such a valuable item? Well this man did! A heart warming story released on USA Today claims how a homeless man, Billy Ray Harris, returned an engagement ring that was accidentally given to him by a woman walking along the street. Earlier that day, Sarah Darling forgot she had taken off her engagement ring and placed it in her coin purse. She accidentally dropped her engagement ring in Billy Rays cup along with her coins. Darling was mortified the next day when she realized what she had done. When she went back to him, he willingly returned the engagement ring, no questions asked. Sarah Darling and her husband were so thankful they started a fund for Harris on his behalf. The fund has already raised over $145,000 for Harris. To read more, visit www.USAtoday.com.

Breaking news! Robbers snatch $50 million in diamonds from Brussels Airport. It’s estimated that $200 million a day leaves this airport. These professionals were in and out in 3 minutes. Check out the video:
I recently traveled to Baltimore to search for an engagement ring. Prior to my trip, I had researched and scheduled appointments with several Jewelers in the area. From the beginning, the staff was particularly responsive and attentive to my budget, design choice, etc. When I arrived (with an entourage of my sister, mom, hopeful fiance’s best friend, and sister’s boyfriend) they were always courteous. It was clear from the beginning that the staff had put time and effort into finding their best selection of rings, diamonds, and settings. I purchased a ring from them that day and am still thrilled with the decision.
We thank you Brendan for your business and wish you all the best!

Have you ever wondered how celebrities decide on which jewelry to wear during nation wide events such as the annual Golden Globe Awards? Some may think that celebrities are so financially well off that they choose which unique designer brand jewelry they want to wear. However, the jewelry industry is just one of many competing to sell luxury commodities. In attempt to rise above their competition, designer brands conduct “product placement” to better promote their jewelry lines. Check out this interesting article, How Jewelry Gets to the Oscars and other Celebrity Events by author Chris Franchetti. The fashion-marketing business has obviously accumulated great success for many top designer names. Placing jewelry on well-known subjects intensifies the viewers “want” of that particular jewelry item.
We found some astonishing examples of actual prices that celebrities were paid to wear designer jewelry. In 2005, Hilary Swank had originally borrowed jewelry from Harry Winston to wear to the Golden Globe Awards. Of course, this was before she was offered $90,000 from Chopard to show off their earrings. The Harry Winston pieces were immediately returned. However, the $90,000 check did not come close to what Ann Hathaway was paid by Tiffany & Co when she co-hosted the 2011 Oscars. According to CBS news, the actress was granted a $750,000 check to wear Tiffany & Co jewelry while co-hosting the event. A more recent article identified that during the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, Jennifer Lawrence was paid $100,000 to wear Chopard 38 carat diamond drop earrings!
While big designers profit from these marketing strategies, others may feel that it is unfair for designers to pay celebrities to wear their jewelry items. Critics may believe that paying celebrities such large sums of money is unfair because it does not give smaller jewelry lines a chance to compete. What do you think about these designers paying celebrities to promote their jewelry?
