Jewelry hounds, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post (been busy doing ‘grown up’ work at Jewelry.com!) but it’s good to know some things never change.  Guess what?

Lindsay Lohan stole some jewelry, ladies and gentlemen! BUT it gets better. This isn’t some swag from a C-lister shindig or a designer sample from some Maxim photo shoot.

Nope.
Lindsay decided to lift a piece of ELIZABETH TAYLOR’S jewelry, for crikes’ sakes. At least her taste is improving.

According to Radar Online, Li-lo got close to Dame Liz’s nurse while filming ‘Liz and Dick‘ and took a shine to a bracelet she owned that was given to her by Ms. Taylor.

“Elizabeth had given the nurse an expensive bracelet that was very meaningful to her and the nurse absolutely cherished it. Lindsay immediately fell in love with the bracelet the minute she saw it and was very vocal about how much she admired it. A short time later, the bracelet disappeared from the nurse’s house … on the very same day Lindsay had been to visit.”

Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Long story short? Lindsay returned the bracelet after the nurse threatened to call the cops – probably the smartest thing she’s done since Mean Girls.

In the meantime? She’s due back in court on January 15th to be ‘arraigned on new charges of lying to the cops in connection with a Santa Monica car crash she was involved with last year’, according to Radar.

“Santa Monica Car Crash” should be your new Drag Queen name, Linds.  Get it together, sister!

In a move as dramatic as a Mean Girl slap, tabloid queen Lindsay Lohan rejected a plea deal for stealing a $2500 necklace from a Los Angeles jeweler – forcing our favorite jewelry headline to (gasp!) stand trial for grand theft and risk a three-year jail sentence.

Paris Hilton? Eat your heart out!!

According to the always-legitimate news source, TMZ, Lindsay’s felony grand theft case will now be assigned to Judge Stephanie Sautner – who’s considered a tough but fair judge – and the preliminary hearing is set for April 22.

The bad news? Lohan faces both jail and prison as the case moves on – jail,  if Judge Sautner decides Lindsay violated her probation, and prison, if Lindsay is convicted of grand theft.

The good news? If Lindsay is found innocent at trial and if Judge Sautner agrees NOT to rule on the probation violation until a verdict is reached in the grand theft case, Lindsay could get off scot-free.

Let’s face it. What would life be without Lindsay roaming the streets with her mean case of sticky-finger syndrome? And I’m dying to see the courtroom couture! Fasten your seatbelts, looky-loos. April isn’t looking so bad after all…

Lindsay Lohan’s Necklace Nightmare

If I had a diamond for every time Lindsay Lohan ‘forgot’ to return loaner jewelry, I’d be richer than a Donald Trump/Oprah Winfrey love child.

Yes, jewelry hounds. Just when you thought our Li-Lo was turning the page to more legit uses of our favorite shiny stuff, she brings us back to her warped reality where ‘stealing’ is somehow really just ‘borrowing’ with benefits.

The latest nonsense has Lindsay ‘borrowing’ a one-of-a-kind $2500 gold necklace from El Ray jewelry store in Los Angeles. The store claims the piece went missing right after Lindsay was seen wearing it in a surveillance video.  Lindsay claims her stylist “borrowed it” and just didn’t return it in time.

Whatever the truth is, it’s clear Ms. Lohan shouldn’t even be in the business of ‘borrowing’ until her probation is over. If the police decide to press charges (and TMZ reports this is likely), she could possibly go back to the slammer, where the only jewelry she’ll be wearing is the kind of ‘cuff no one wants in their jewelry box.

Get it together, Lohan.

What would my life be without a Lindsay Lohan jewelry post, right? After 90 days at Betty Ford, Li-lo is on the loose again, and the jewelry buzz is following her like a neglected puppy dog.

But let’s all share a moment of silence, shall we, and send out our most positive thoughts that instead of ‘misplacing’ loaner jewels or ‘borrowing’ samples from her friends’ launch parties, Lindsay’s jewelry news will take a more legitimate turn for 2011.

So far, so good.

Apparently, jeweler Pacal Mouawad (famed for partnering with Nicole Richie on her House of Harlow line, among other stars) lunched with Lohan where they reportedly ‘discussed’ a jewelry line of their own.

And what did she get for her trouble? How about a 10-carat diamond heart Rosette necklace worth $25,000 smackers? I’d stay off the sauce if I were you, sister.

“Lindsay is looking great, she has a positive attitude, and we are looking forward to an amazing 2011 spending a lot of time together,” Mouawad told people.com.

Lindsay Lohan: Jewelry Lover to Jailbird

Lindsay Lohan was spotted last night at Ana De Costa’s jewelry show in Los Angeles looking fresh-faced and ready to consume – far from the frightened soon-to-be sentenced drama queen we might have expected.

The jewelry show featured D-listers Brittny and Lisa Gastineau’s new jewelry line, ‘Tres Glam’ which features their signature ‘eye’ theme – a power symbol known to ‘ward off danger’ according to the mother-daughter duo.

Too bad Lindsay didn’t pick one up, cuz…well, it’s slammer time again for our favorite tabloid fixation.

People Magazine reports the stunned actress was cuffed and led away by authorities after the judge sentenced her to prison until her next hearing on October 22nd – almost a month away!

At least she spent her last night of freedom doing something worthwhile. What do you guys think of Li-Lo’s latest chapter?

Lindsay Lohan: Jewelry Debts and Jail Time

From her surprising love life to her “FU” fingernail fashion – it’s never dull when Lindsay Lohan hits the headlines. And while her recent jail sentence is the latest Li-Lo shocker, it’s nice to know there are still some things we can rely on when it comes to our favorite paparazzi princess:

Jewelry debts.

Whether she’s “borrowing” jewelry from a photo shoot, losing a suitcase full of diamonds or snapping up gift bag goodies like a venus fly trap in a garbage dump – our beloved Lindsay never met a shiny object she actually paid for.

The latest jewelry offense comes to us from The Grey Lady of tabloid journalism – TMZ – with a report that a Hollywood boutique is suing Lindsay for an unpaid bill of just over $17,000. The ‘first lady of leggings’ apparently bought – among other things – a 14kt diamond ring worth $5900 on her shopping spree.

With 90 days of hard jail time looming large, I doubt this is at the top of Lindsay’s ‘to do’ list, but it’s nice to see someone other than the long hand of the law trying to make an honest woman out of her.

What do you guys think of Lindsay’s latest transgressions? And did anyone see her jaw-dropping cameo on Bravo’s reality show gawk-fest, Double Exposure? Stunning.

Well, jewelry hounds, welcome to 2010. While it’s taking everything in my power not to write about Jennifer Lopez’s diamond-studded nightmare, I mean, catsuit on the Dick Clark New Year’s Eve special (I’ll let these hilarious bloggers do the work for me), there’s just no stopping ‘The Lohan’ from making my first post of 2010.

What this means for the New Year is anyone’s guess.

So news hit over the holidays that Lindsay’s 6126 legging line is going to expand into a full clothing offering with – you guessed it – a jewelry line due out in the spring of next year.

This means Lindsay, known for losing a purse full of diamonds worth 6 figures and ‘misplacing’ thousands of jewels from various photo shoots worldwide, is going to try her hand at jewelry designer for the masses??

But just when you think whoever is backing this venture must be as misguided as a Michael Lohan parenting attempt, think again.

Kristi Kaylor, chief executive officer of Los Angeles’ DNAM Apparel, which will manufacture the line under license, spoke exclusively to WWD about the expansion.

“We’ve had amazing success with the leggings line,” said Kaylor. “We’re launching the full clothing collection next year, and a cosmetics line, handbags, shoes, jewelry in spring 2011.”

That’s over $3 million worth of overpriced legging succes, according to reports.Who knew?

The fall 2010 apparel line will include100 pieces (spring 2011 will be 150) with average retail price points running between $100 and $150. The 6126 leggings currently retail from $68 to $120.

While we’ll have to wait to see details of the jewelry line, here are a few early drawings of the apparel offerings. What do you guys think so far?

Diamond jewelry hasn’t been old Lindsay Lohan’s best friend lately – what with the high profile jewelry robbery going down at her pad and the many rumors that she, well, stole a bunch of it from various photo shoots.

Lately, buzz has been circling famous jeweler, Pascal Mouawad, that he and Lindsay were in talks to do a jewelry line for an ‘un-named’ (and misguided?) retailer. Could it be?

Mouawad and Lohan were at Kitson Boutique this week for his watch line launch with star, Jermaine Dupri, and the scraggly starlet wore out her welcome by snatching over $15,000 in merch according to Fox News explaining that,

“Pascal would take care of it because I’m the only celebrity here.”

BUT – “Pascal said no, so she went and started talking smack about him to Jermaine Dupri who doesn’t even know her,” said an insider. “He was totally bewildered and couldn’t believe it. Eventually Pascal said she could have $2000 to spend but that was the absolutely limit.”

And there’s global warming still to worry about.

Anywho, a glutton for punishment apparently, Mouawad told Fox that,

“Lindsay is a close friend of mine, who has a keen eye for jewelry. We have thrown around the idea to collaborate together to create an exclusive line for a retailer who has shown interest in a fashion line designed by her.”

My money is on this taking a back seat to another trip to rehab for Miss ‘grabs-a-lot’, but what do I know? What do you think the odds are, folks? Weigh in!

Maybe diamonds aren’t Lindsay Lohan’s best friend after all. After several high profile diamond jewelry debacles – including a lost purse carrying thousands of dollars in jewels and rumors accusing her of stealing diamond jewelry from a photo shoot – La-Lohan is making diamond jewelry news again.
Maybe her bogus tanning products and lackluster legging line angered the fashion gods, but the papparazi darling found herself yet another victim of a celebrity-targeted break-in a la Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom.
Her upstanding citizen of a father reported the robbery, telling TMZ that he believed it to be an inside job. Reports state that the alarm system was dismantled and Lohan’s safe was ripped off the wall. Bags, shoes and diamond jewelry were taken, but no word yet on how much the loot is worth.
It seems trouble follows Ms. Lohan wherever she goes these days. With plans already underway to move Lindsay out of her Hollywood Hills home, let’s hope the gods will be satisfied with a simple return to the movie industry where she belongs. Sans diamonds, patterned leggings and the perma-tan.

How do you throw the priciest party the world has ever seen? It’s simple. You build a billion-dollar hotel on a man-made island, invite a slew of celebrities and billionaires, fly in world-renown chefs and designers, and create a fireworks display so huge it can be seen from outer space.

And drop a cool $20 mil.

The economic crisis was nowhere to be found in Dubai this week, as the Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, the Executive Chairman of Nakeel, celebrated the grand opening of his $1.5 billion luxury hotel, Atlantis – The Palm, with a party rumored to be the biggest bash history.

“I’m thrilled and proud,” beamed the Sultan. “Five years ago where I am standing now was water.”

There was enough pomp and security for a royal wedding, as the 2,000 guests had to go through several check points to gain entrance to the soiree. The entire artificial palm-shaped island where the hotel is located was locked down several hours before the festivities began, and a special “exclusion zone” was established along the coastline, which banned boats from coming within two nautical miles of the shore.

Glittering guests included Lindsay Lohan in a gorgeous diamond and onyx Y neck with matching drop earrings, the always-stunning Charlize Theron in gold chandelier drops, uber-model, Agyness Deyn, in a unique diamond statement necklace, and designer Jade Jagger in a layered series of pearl strands.

Other A-list attendees included Denzel Washington, Robert DeNiro, Sir Richard Branson, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, Janet Jackson and fashion moppets Mary Kate and Ashley Olson. Notable no-shows were Oprah Winfrey and Ben Affleck.

The guests were treated to a banquet prepared by several Michelin-rated chefs, a private performance by Kylie Minogue, and an after party at the nearby Royal Afterglow bar, where DJs, including Samantha Ronson, played live sets.
