Tag Archives: April Is Diamond Month

The Jewelry Insider

April 2, 2011

Jewelry hounds, just when we thought our Awards Show jewelry withdrawal was going to get the better of us, in walks April with a swagger and a promise:

Hold on to your “holy cow!” – It’s going to be one doozy of a diamond month!

Why? Well, let’s get the most obvious reason out of the way first.  For those of you living in a cave, the royal wedding is this month! Not only will we get to ooh and ahh at Kate Middleton’s wedding jewelry, we can gawk at all the other crown jewels and gems that are sure to make an apperance.

These ladies never met a tiara they didn’t like, Mary. For reals.

Stay tuned for all my jewelry-laden lead up to the big day on April 29th. And I’m of half a mind to Live Tweet the darn thing. Any takers for #royaljewelry?

OK. The next big reason to celebrate April? It’s this month’s birthstone. (Please excuse me while I seethe with envy at all you April babies). BUT even if you’re not born in April, many folks in bauble land are celebrating – including JewelClub with their April Is Diamond Month extravaganza.

Today, for example, I saw on their FaceBook Page that they are cutting the price of this 1/2 ct three-stone diamond anniversary ring by 83%. Not sure what they’re smoking over there, but as Meg Ryan famously said in When Harry Met Sally...

“I’ll have what they’re having…”

And they promise to slash the prices of lots of diamond classics all month – just check in on their Homepage and bring on the ice.

So we while we red carpet jewelry gawkerts have to wait until May 2nd to get a legitimate fix (The Met’s Costume Institute Gala is scheduled then – stay tuned), April is picking up the slack in a MAJOR way.

No foolin’!
