The Jewelry-Kardashian & Humphries Wedding

We have all been waiting to see the type of jewelry Kim Kardashian wore on her wedding day and the type of band Kris Humphries decided to wear. That day has finally come! People magazine had the exclusive rights to publish some wedding photos and as soon as it hit stands we went to find out all the info for our readers.

Lets start off with the most important pieces for the Kardashian-Humphries, the wedding rings. Kim paired her beautiful 20.5 carat diamond engagement ring with a gorgeous diamond eternity ring. The eternity ring has emerald-cut diamonds that are over 15.0 carats in total weight. She’s a lucky girl. It seems as though many celebs are opting for the diamond eternity band for their wedding. We think this is a great choice for a wedding ring. It’s simple and can be worn by itself.  As for Kris, he went with an edgier look; opting for a  black gold wedding band with black diamonds. Our first time seeing pictures of his rings was from a distance and it looked like tungsten. Glad to hear he chose black gold, keeping the traditional use of gold in wedding bands. It was also reported that his black gold wedding band was matched with custom cuff links. Way to accessorize your wedding suit.  Pictures of the rings below, as well as Kim’s other wedding jewelry:

To accessorize with Kim’s wedding gown and rings, Kris Humphries gave her a beautiful diamond bracelet that is in the shape of a knot. Hanging off the knot are two “K” initials symbolizing Kris and Kim tying the knot. Details about the diamond bracelet is still yet to be revealed. Kim also wore a beautiful diamond headpiece, an estimated value of $2.5 million and about 65.0 carat total weight. We’re wondering if it was heavy to wear with all those diamonds on her! To match her unbelievable headpiece, she wore diamond drop earrings. The earrings are 28.0 carat total weight with round diamonds and diamond pear shaped dropping down; valued at $5.0 million. Luckily she borrowed the headpiece and diamond earrings.  Overall, she wore and accessorized the jewelry pieces beautifully and we love the idea of her with all those diamonds. Congratulations once again!

One Day Until Kim & Kris’s Big Day!!

One Day Until Kim & Kris’s Big Day!!

Many are anxiously waiting to see how Kim Kardashian looks on her wedding day. There is just one day before Kim and Kris Humphries take the step towards marriage. We are all wondering the gown she will wear and how she plans to accessorize the beautiful dress. One thing for sure is she will be wearing that beautiful 20.5 carat total weight engagement ring.

When the world first got a glimpse of the 16.5 carat cushion cut diamond with 2 beautiful 2.0 carat diamonds next to the stone, many women were in awe and mesmerized by the ring. Now, we are all wondering will she pair the beautiful engagement ring with a wedding band and will she wear jewelry just as extravagant and beautiful as her ring. Another big question on our mind is Kris’s wedding band. What will he wear or will he wear anything because Prince William decided not to wear a wedding ring?

We all are anxiously waiting for the details. Until then, congratulations to Kim and Kris. We wish you all the best!!!

Diamond Eyes!

Diamond Eyes!

Diamond eyes sounds like a James Bond movie, but it’s not. Who would have thought people would really want a little sparkle in their eyes! The first ever contacts made with diamonds. People can now get contacts that are gold-plated and have 18 diamonds set in each contact.

Diamond Contact Lenses

The new trend is from the Shekhar Eye Research. They are selling contacts that have diamonds. It is said the price of these diamonds are $15,000 for a pair.  To put these contacts on, a person needs a lot of saliene solution. Eye doctors are speaking out against the use of these contacts stating that they are not healthy nor comfortable for the eye. But there are people out there that will pay for the price of these diamond contacts.

Here at WeddingBands.com, we absolutely love diamonds. Colored diamonds are especially beautiful. One of our favorite Canary Diamonds is the Tiffany Yellow Diamond.

The famous Tiffany Yellow diamond was discovered in 1877, a 287.42 carat rough cut stone. Purchased from the South African mine by Charles Tiffany, it was then cut into a 128.54 carat Cushion cut diamond.

The stunning diamond was famously worn by Audrey Hepburn in promotional photographs for Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

In 1995, it was featured at the Louvre in its famed Bird on a Rock Setting. Today, the stone resides in New York, at the Tiffany & Co. Flagship store on 5th avenue.

Update: Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo- Wedding Bands!

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo recently wed in a tropical wedding ceremony. We reported on her engagement ring, and some details from the ceremony, but we wondered about the pair’s wedding bands. The verdict is in!

The pair selected bands made from the jeweler who created the engagement ring, New York’s Bader and Garrin. Both wanted substantial rings with diamonds.

The bride selected a platinum eternity band with Asscher cut diamonds. The groom selected a stunning platinum band with 24 square diamonds, to compliment his wife’s choice.
