Greetings my darlings!
Ah, it is delightful to be in awards season, where we can see the beautiful and bountiful baubles on display.
Jewelry and cinema have long gone hand-in-glove, have they not? We love to see the beautiful people wearing the glamorous, gorgeous gems and jewels.
The artisans creating these beautiful pieces are often inspired by a member of the Hollywood elite, but in some cases, they are inspired by the characters or the film itself.
With that, I bring you the talented and fragrant Wendy Brandes and her Black Swan ring:
“When Black Swan came out last month and people swooned over Natalie Portman’s performance, I thought, ‘I MUST do a black-diamond version of my Cleves swan ring!'”
And that she did:
This ring is a stunner. It was originally designed as the “Cleves Ring” with white diamonds, and “was inspired by Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII’s fourth wife, who was born in Schwanenburg Castle (Swan Castle). This black-diamond version is a tribute to the 2010 psychological thriller Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman as an unhinged ballerina.”
Black diamonds, ballet, and insanity? There might be something more glamorous out there, but I’m really not sure what it could be. These could make a great Christmas gifts for wife.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out Wendy’s blog. She writes beautifully (and often, hilariously) about fashion, feminism, dogs, and many other delightful topics.
Yours en pointe,
