Nick Tells Mariah He Still Loves Her With A Bling Ring Pop

This past weekend, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their second wedding anniversary — and we thought it wouldn’t last! — by renewing their vows. Additionally, Nick said “I do” in a way that only Mariah could appreciate, giving his bride a diamond and pink sapphire-encrusted white gold ring pop. Yeah, like the candy, only not edible. Before you write the gift off as completely wasteful, disgusting, and tacky, know that the message is entirely sentimental. You see, Nick proposed to Mariah three years ago with a diamond ring disguised in a ring pop candy wrapper. Still wasteful, disgusting, and tacky? Yeah. [People] Keep reading »

Buy Your Engagement Ring Now? Diamond Supply May Run Out

Apparently, a diamond isn’t forever. De Beers, one of the biggest names in diamond mining, just announced that the company would slow production so they basically don’t rape the world’s natural resources. Explains Gareth Penny, managing director for De Beers, “Diamonds are a treasure of nature that should be properly protected, because there will be less to sell. The reality is that supply cannot keep up, and that will become very accentuated over the next 15 years.” Keep reading »

Rachel Bilson’s Do-Gooding Involves Diamonds

Every celebrity seems to have a pet cause, and we have a hard time keeping track of who supports what and deciding which ones we’re going to contribute to on our non-star salaries. Take Rachel Bilson. She designed this bracelet to help support the Diamond Empowerment Fund, which works to educate and develop disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource. Would we have chosen to donate money to that organization on our own? Probably not, but we had already imagined the bracelet becoming our new signature accessory when we found out that $20 from each sale goes to the foundation. Isn’t it nice when buying something you already wanted benefits other people? [Macy's via Luxist] Keep reading »

A Different Kind Of “Mood” Ring

Bored of your bling? Sorry, you’re out of luck … well, unless you bought this interchangeable diamond stone ring. The ring “set” (that’s what we’re calling it) by Sruli Recht comes with a total of three stones, which are in different colors and shapes so they can be switched out depending on your mood. It’s like a slightly more expensive (the stones are rough, uncut diamonds totaling €3530, approximately $5,060) mood ring! OK, so the price isn’t exactly accessible, but how cool-looking do these untreated gems look? [InventorSpot] Keep reading »

Win This! $200 JCPenney Gift Card

This week, we’re giving away a $200 JCPenney gift card to the best commenter on The Frisky. Whoever wins is going to have a tough time figuring out how to use it, so here’s an idea.

We’re always oohing and ahhing at the jewels celebs wear on the red carpet, from ginormous jade rings to intricate diamond and platinum bracelets, but, sadly, those statement makers don’t really have a place in our everyday lives. What we would wear pretty much every day, however, is a pair of diamond hoop earrings. They’d add some sparkle to our workday ensembles, and they’re elegant enough to pair with our best dress (should we ever have occasion to bring it out of the closet). [$229.99, JCPenney]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away a $200 gift card provided by JCPenney to use however you wish, but you have to work if you want it! The best commenter for this coming week — from today, Friday, Dec. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 10 — will be awarded with the gift card. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can. Click HERE to read the official rules. And remember to check Gift For Gab on Dec. 11 to see if you’re the winner. Keep reading »

Woman Trades Diamonds For Husband’s Infidelity

Being cheated on sucks. The insecurity, the anger, the effort it takes to burn down his house … it’s all the pits. And while we wouldn’t wish that on anyone, one English woman found a way to lessen the sting a bit, by demanding diamonds from her spouse every time it happened.

Elizabeth Charlton was married to her husband for 26 years. During that time, she gathered more than half a million dollars of “I’m Sorry” jewelry. From big ‘ol diamond necklaces to brooches, rings and bracelets, the girl accessorized her embarrassment well. So well, in fact, that a selection of 43 pieces just sold for a collective 300,000 British pounds at auction. Would you trade your husband’s infidelity for boatloads of bitchin’ jewelry?

Diamonds Aren’t A Girl’s Best Friend

Who am I to argue with the Madison Avenue suits who coined the phrase “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”?

If only diamonds were all we believe them to be. The violence resulting from the diamond mining and trading industry is, in a word, tragic. And, as it turns out, diamonds aren’t even as valuable as we’ve been told. Keep reading »
