Famous Pop singers and also one of my childhood favorites, Shania Twain walked the altar for the second time this New Year, and this time with her sweetheart, Swiss businessman Frederic Thiebau in Puerto Rico.
Twain might have sung the famous song ‘That don’t impress me much’,but her Engagement ring with 3-carat Emerald cut diamond by by Lorraine Schwartz is most certainly impressive.
Emerald cut is personally one of my favorites, It is basically a rectangular step cut with soft or rounded corners. The cut portrays a unique combination of style and sophistication and only looks good in gemstones of a certain size or more.

It has been three weeks past the new year and it still takes to get adjusted to the fact that we are no more living in 2010 but 2011. Guess it is going to be few more weeks before I get accustomed to 2011.
But yes, the fact remains, and it is January; the month that has Garnet as its Birthstone. This gemstone is found in a wide spectra of colors but is mostly loved for their deep red hues. These deep red hue gemstone look absolutely gorgeous and were often found in antique jewelry. Even many of the historically famous rubies were later found out to be garnets.
Garnet is also one of those very few rare gems that is used untreated in jewelry. This gemstone looks stunning in all kinds of jewelry and complements all kind of metals and colors.
Even hundred of years ago the gem was greatly valued as it was believed that the gem protects its wearer from all kinds of diseases and brings him honors.
Although we women love to wear jewelry, we many times forget that our jewelry is supposed to complement our looks, accentuate our features but not over power. It is important that we remember that and wear jewelry strictly as per the occasion or one can turn into a fashion disaster.
If worn correctly, jewelry has the power of turning even a simple casual outfit into absolutely chic one.
Below are some tips that would help you look stylish
- Never Overdo. One of the most important things that one need to take care of while wearing jewelry is never to overdo. Jewelry can make you look gaudy if you overdo it. Don’t wear your jewelry as if you have to show off all that you have got.
- Be Consistent. Be consistent with one jewelry look at a time. If you want to wear some big bold pendant, never wear some delicate earrings or rings with. If you want to go bold with your jewelry, then let that be theme of all jewelry pieces whether they be rings, earrings or bangles.
- Don’t mismatch two styles. While you can mix-match your jewelry and wear it and this could be a pretty stunning idea. But, don’t try to mix two different styles, they just never work. Say if you are wearing a cocktail ring, then let that alone be the eye catcher. Wearing other small and delicate rings would only take away from its glamour.
- Also when you want to wear multiple chains or necklaces, never wear a thin chain and a thick one together.
