Crazy About Cocktail Rings

Cocktails and jewelry make such a handsome couple, and there’s a sparkling new interpretation: Piaget’s Limelight Cocktail Ring Collection.

While I’m not usually a fan of the ‘literal’ jewelry interpretation (“#1 Mom” pendants, anyone?), these little libation-inspired lovelies are designed to look like ACTUAL cocktails – from the 18kt white gold Mojito ring with (count ’em) 182 diamonds and a 24-carat green tourmaline, to the classic Cosmopolitan.

Shut. It. Down.

There are 6 rings to choose from.  Or if you’re like me after an introductory ‘nip’ – you can sample them all! The bad news is: the price points are more likely in the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ range – and, well, if you can afford four rotating nannies, I say: “Go for it!”

For the rest of us mere mortals, there are still plenty of cocktail rings to choose from that won’t break the bank – like this fun blue topaz and peridot style for only $83.64 on JewelClub. That’ll leave in room in the wallet for another round (or two), right?

So raise your glass to cocktail classics – from top shelf treasures to affordable concoctions that (unlike that 3rd ‘well drink’ at Happy Hour) won’t leave a nasty hangover.

Chin chin!

Jewelry hounds, let’s forget about our dreary lives for a moment shall we and enter the delightful dream scape that is actress Sienna Miller’s day-to-day.

She’s a glamorous movie star (with the bank account to match). She’s dating the hunky Jude Law. Again. She’s got that ‘skinny without trying’ thing going for her. And now? She has her pick of Piaget Possession jewelry as their new spokesmodel.

You can go ahead now and:

a) roll your eyes
b) do your best ‘vomit in your mouth’ impression
c) spontaneously start those double chin exercises
d) all of the above

To commemorate 20 years of their popular Possession Collection, Piaget picked the scrumptious Sienna to star in a series of iconic photographs wearing the classic jewels. Leaving no stone unturned, they assembled an A-list team of fashion industry professionals for a major photo shoot at Hudson Studios in New York, including legendary photographer, Raymond Meier, and renowned stylist and regular Vogue contributor, Elissa Santisi.

The first photo in the series is displayed above with two more to follow in the coming months, according to a press release, so stay tuned.

Click here to be the first to view the Youtube video capturing Sienna in action and more importantly – you can gawk at the Piaget Possession jewels featuring interlocking ring silhouettes in both yellow gold and diva-worthy diamonds.

Or just put on your bathrobe, open up a pint of New York Super Fudge Chunk and call it good.

 

Diamonds Drip at Piaget Jewelry Launch

Diamond bows, glittering gold cocktail rings and Eiffel Tower-inspired jewels were just some of the styles on hand at the red carpet launch of Piaget’s new Limelight Paris-New York jewelry and watch collection.

The star-studded event was held at the private Loft & Gardens in New York’s famed Rockefeller Center, and some of Hollywood’s classic beauties were on hand to celebrate.

The Dark Knight’s Maggie Gyllenhaal, wore the collection’s signature bow-shaped watch, while Emmy Rossum dazzled in Piaget’s white gold and diamond cascade necklace. Liv Tyler chose a 36 carat pink tourmaline cocktail ring and Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester kept it simple with diamond drop earrings and a series of sparkling bracelets.

Piaget’s CEO, Philipe Liopil-Metzger personally escorted the couture collection from Switzerland, which is inspired by the aesthetic and architectural worlds of Paris and New York. What’s not to love? The fact that only a limited number of the baubles are available to the gawking public. Let us eat cake, Piaget!
