Kristen Stewart’s Promise Ring Buzz

Did you hear? Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson gave co-star and sweetheart, Kristen Stewart, a ring last week! (And you thought the budget brouhaha in Washington was big news.)

While Twi-hards will be disappointed to learn that the rumored ring is not, in fact, an engagement ring – it is a rock that comes with relationship strings.

According to Hollwoodgossip.com, R-Pats threw down a whopping $17,000 for a vintage promise ring and is just “waiting for the right time to give it to her.”

A source said, “The ring is rose-cut diamonds set in rose gold. It’s a very feminine piece of jewelry and very old. The diamonds aren’t huge, and it doesn’t look like an engagement ring. [He] found it through a dealer who specializes in estate jewelry, and he knew it was just perfect for Kristen.”

He’s not proposing, though. But the snitch is convinced that he would, if Kristen were on board for it.

I haven’t heard much about the use of ‘promise rings’ these days, but it’s heart-warming to know the tradition continues even with A-listers like this Tween dream couple. It’s also nice to hear that rose gold is still a hot trend for all the metal mavens out there.

Rose gold, for the uninitiated, is a gold and copper alloy also known as pink gold or red gold (depending on the amount of copper in the mix).

Rose-cut diamonds were introduced as early as the 1500’s and were popular until the early 1900’s – so you see them a lot in vintage pieces like the one Rob apparently selected.

Everything’s certainly coming up roses for Kristen Stewart these days. I’ll be on the lookout for her rosy ring pics – so stay tuned!

In the meantime, do you guys see promise rings making a comeback out there? Is this a new trend or a sweet gesture from a bygone era?

Jewelry a No-Show at Twilight Premiere


Twi-hards screamed, photogs jostled, and celebrities littered the red carpet of the Twilight: New Moon premiere in Los Angeles last night. At long last, the vampire sensation is unleashing its next installment on the teen set and the parents who love them – and the party was a big one.


Unfortunately, the jewelry fashion wasn’t as important as an Edward sighting or a Bella scowl. Speaking of, the ‘Bella’ of the ball – Kristen Stewart – showed up in a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown but wore nary a jewel (ok, a few bangles – but whatever). And, well, despite how much I LOVE the fact that she’s playing Joan Jett in the upcoming Runaways movie – she’s got this Ellen Page-esque aversion to glam that -well – disappoints me. She’s a stunner and could have turned it up a notch this go-round. Just my two cents.

Co-stars, Dakota Fanning and Nikki Reed looked adorable and Jennie Garth and Ashley Green made a glittering showing – but overall, I found the female fashions to be less than gawk-worthy considering the huge phenomenon this has turned out to be. Am I right?


Taylor and Rob, on the other hand? Um, yeah, I get it America. To die…

Oh, and how could I forget to peddle to Twilight: New Moon jewelry line – already a strong seller for Nordies?
