Diamonds on the Down Low at Chelsea’s Wedding

Jewelry hounds? Who doesn’t love an over-the-top Liz Taylor-esuqe decadent display of diamonds every now and again, right? It’s what we love to see on the red carpet and at all the gawdy-as-all-get-out celebrity weddings.

But I am here to tell you, that I couldn’t be more pleased with Chelsea Clinton’s decision to do just a ‘splash’ of sparkle for her big day. No tiaras. No diamond dog collars. No swinging from the ‘chandeliers’.

Nope, Ms. Clinton chose teeny tiny diamond flower cluster drop earrings and a sliver of a diamond tennis bracelet with a matching floral motif. I applaud her less-is-more bling approach. (Jewelry.com has a great article today if you want the same styles for your jewelry box)

Loved the Vera Wang choice too, no? You all know I die for de la Renta (the other rumored designer choice and the genius behind Hillary’s Mother-of-the-Bride gown), but the VW never disappoints.

I also loved that she duped us all. No Oprah. No Streisand. No Spielberg. No fireworks. Ted Danson was the biggest star there! The limited pics they made available to the press said it all: it was an event full of love and privacy – despite the star-power of her famous folks. I’m happy that it was truly her day, despite fashion stalkers like me wanting to know every detail.

What do you guys think of her wedding diamonds? Subtle and stylish? Or small and snoresville?

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding Jewelry

Chelsea Clinton’s diamond engagement ring is one of the most sought-after styles of the summer, so it comes as no surprise that the blogosphere is abuzz with details about the rocks she’ll wear down the aisle tomorrow.

Will she go the American princess route in a diamond tiara like Carrie Underwood did on her big day?

Or will she keep things classic and timeless like last year’s A-list bride, Ivanka Trump?

What we do know from ABC News is that the rumored jewelry budget is upwards of $250,000 – enough to bring on even more security for the Rhinebeck, NY nuptials.

And Momma Clinton, now that she’s got better things to do than avoid a nuclear holocaust, was spotted toting that light-blue indicator of deep-pocketed taste – a Tiffany bag – to Chelsea’s building earlier today. Things are starting to look delicious already.

And while you know my favorite bridal buzz is all about the bling, this hilarious budget item comes a close second:

The Clintons are spending $15,000 for heated port-o-potties with classical music chimed in for good measure. Because what’s a port-o-potty experience without a little Puccini, right?

Stay tuned for more Chelsea Clinton wedding details! I didn’t get an invite – neither did President Obama, ok? – but I’ll be on the hunt for all the latest dish.

Speaking of, did you hear the Bristol Palin/Levi Johnston wedding may be off? You’ll never guess why…

Chelsea Clinton’s Engagement Ring Photos

Blurry though they may be, at long last Chelsea Clinton diamond engagement ring photos are making the rounds this week. The Huffington Post published these shots captured while the uber-offspring was taking in the premiere of Broadway’s latest hit, “Promises, Promises”. The crutches, while giving us a great gawk at her ring finger, are there to help her nurse a broken heel. Still no diamond details in terms of cut and carat-count, but by the looks of it her groom-to-be has good taste (and a sizable diamond budget). Would we expect anything less for our Chelsea? The former first daughter announced her engagement to long-term beau, Marc Mezvinsky, in November. They are expected to wed this summer with details being Washington’s best kept secret. Stay tuned!

Chelsea Clinton’s Engagement Ring

(Update, April 27, 2010: Chelsea Clinton’s diamond engagement ring photos are finally making the rounds. See for yourselves, jewelry hounds!)

Jewelry hounds, I’m shocked, sickened and – well – wondering if there is a man left in America who doesn’t text strippers when their wives aren’t looking. If Jesse James finds it necessary to cheat on Sandra friggin Bullock, it makes it hard to get excited about anyone wanting to find eternal bliss.

But just when the dark clouds began to take over my mood today, this ray of sunshine crossed my path:

Chelsea Clinton’s engagement ring was spotted!

Apparently the diamond rock drew a crowd backstage at this weekend’s Women in the World: Stories & Solutions conference. According to the New York Post, Clinton was surrounded in the green room by host Tina Brown, Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller, who all admired her bauble from fiancĂ© Marc Mezvinsky.

Chelsea’s future mother-in-law, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, was repeatedly asked, “Where are they getting married?” But she politely replied, “I can’t say.”

What I’m asking is: What’s the carat count Chels!?!

I’ll be on the lookout for the first photos, so stay tuned. What’s your guess? It drew gasps from the uber-wealthy Barry Diller, so I’m thinking 3 plus carats? Or is that too over the top for the normally understated First Daughter?

(And now back to sitting shiva for Sandra…Sigh.)

Weigh in!
