Celebrity Jewelry Gossip

Juicy celebrity jewelry tidbits are both naughty and nice this week. Here’s a blingy roundup:

Pete Doherty: Jewelry Designer/Jailbird

From the ‘Most Unlikely Celebrity to Launch a Jewelry Line’ category comes news that badboy Brit rocker and ex Kate Moss love, Pete Doherty, came out this week with a bauble collection for men. Just in time for his court appearance for drug possession.

The fifteen-piece range was inspired by “trinkets … ivory, cigarette tins, old cases, old glass,” Doherty told WWD between cigarette drags at the launch party. “It’s just a shame I can’t afford to buy them myself,” he sighed, referring to the $663 to $13,600 price range. “They cost a fortune.”

Courtney Love: Grrrl Rocker/Jewelry Thief

Just when you think her annoying self-destructive phase is over, Courtney Love never fails to self-sabatoge. This time she’s taken a page from the Lindsay Lohan play book by ‘losing’ borrowed jewelry from a celebrity jewelry house.

The Hole frontwoman was slapped with a lawsuit from Jacob & Co. for not returning jewelry worth nearly $114,000. According to USA Today, Love borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold, floral-design mesh bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond pave hoop earrings on Sept. 21 from the New York jeweler – but only returned the bracelet. She now owes $113,700 for the oversight.

And all of us for the 30 seconds it took to read this post.


SouljaBoy: Rapper/Investment Specialist

What do Glenn Beck and SouljaBoy have in common? A penchant for dispersing investment advice, apparently. The rapper rivals Lil’ Wayne in the bling department, wearing jewelry creations that weigh more than a toddler.

When asked about his $3 million jewelry stash’s investment value, Mr. Boy told Sway from MTV,

“Gold is the best thing going, all the people that’s watching, honestly … all of my jewelry together … gold is where it’s at.”

Sharon Stone: Celebrity Charity Case

Joining the likes of Angelina Jolie and Christina Applegate, Sharon Stone is putting her name on a jewelry line for charity, according to Luxist.

Sharon Stone has been the face of Damiani jewelry since 2008 and collaborated with them on  a new line of jewelry, The Maji, that benefits the charity initiative, The Clean Water Project.

The collection is the first in the series of “Sharon Stone for Damiani” lines and features rings, pendants, bracelets and earrings with rough diamonds set on burnished gold or silver – each signed by the Cougar Queen herself.

Overacting lessons and oversized ego, not included.

It’s never dull in blingville, jewelry hounds. Send me your gem-filled gossip, and I’ll try to include it for my next roundup!

Does a dead Garfield really make the best diamond ring?Apparently for some, their dead dogs, cats and well, great-aunts, can make a stunning diamond ring.

Kate Moss

LifegemBad boy rocker, Peter Doherty is planning to have the ashes of his cat Shelley made into a diamond ring. According to UK Now Magazine, he’s reportedly commissioned Lifegem to turn the ashes of ole puss into a diamond ring and is planning to give the sparkler to his ex, spindly super-model Kate Moss. Apparently the cat was her favorite pet when they dated last year. I’m sure wearing the carbonized ashes of a cat is just what she dreams of.

If you’re interested in wearing your dearly departed, Lifegem turns the cremated ashes of grandma, Fido, Uncle Barney and great-aunt Maisy and her pets into diamonds. If saying goodbye is too painful – don’t – turn them into jewelry instead. (The ring picture is an actual diamond ring of a ‘Precious Pet
Lifegem’).

Pete, may we suggest instead of burning up Shelley and setting the feline in a prong setting – simply give the ex a cute diamond pussy-cat pendant like this one from Macy’s.

Remember the case of the missing owner of a $40,000 Diamond Ring – they’ve been traced thanks to a lot of hard work by the jewelry store and the surreal honesty of the finders of the ring.

The Stetzers found the diamond ring a parking lot of a Virginia Mall and traced it back to a local jewelers, Mervis Diamond Importers. The jewelers and the Stetzers advertised, investigated and tried every which way to return the ring to its rightful owner. Finally, yesterday, a happy Mark and Susan Brahms were reunited with their ring.

The Stetzers said the grateful couple gave them a reward, which they plan to donate to a charity.
If they hadn’t found the owners, he and his wife had already decided to auction off the ring, valued at $40,000, and give the money to charity. It was never theirs to keep, Stetzer said.
“We didn’t earn it,” he said. “That’s not the way I was brought up; my wife neither.”
