Schwartz designed the celeb couple’s wedding bands herself. Kim’s ring was a handmade diamond band, while Kanye’s was a handmade gold band. Kim accessorized her wedding outfit with her 15 carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring, and a pair of Martin Katz 18K gold diamond earrings accented by 100 smaller diamonds. The earrings were actually a present Kanye gave Kim more than a year ago. Aw!

Singer Stacy (Fergie) Ferguson and TV’s hunky Josh Duhamel are the latest celebrity couple to pull off a high-profile wedding. While the Golden Globes distracted much of Hollywood, the photogenic couple wed in Malibu on Saturday in a ceremony rumored to have put the pair back a whopping $1.5 million.
And in the spirit of ‘something borrowed’, Fergie’s fairy godfather, H. Stern, loaned her $5 million in diamond jewelry to add sparkle to her Dolce & Gabbana wedding gown, including the Ropes Diamond Necklace worn in her hair as a veil, Hera diamond earrings also worn as hair pieces, and the Venus necklace, a lariat design featuring over 80 carats of diamonds.
You look good? You get perks.
Fergie’s engagement ring, also by H. Stern, is a modified version of Stern’s signature Stars Ring piece, featuring a round 4 carat brilliant cut diamond set with white and cognac ice along the band. A narrow colored diamond wedding band was designed to match.
As for Josh? He got a white gold ring.
E!Online reports that guests included the bride’s fellow Black Eyed Peas, including will.i.am, as well as Justin Timberlake, Kate Hudson, Mario Lopez, Slash, Kid Rock, Stacy Keibler, Molly Sims and new parents, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell.
The ceremony took place in a large white tent, the reception in a black-and-white tent, and the afterparty in a pink tent that was decked out like a disco. The sisters of the bride and groom gave toasts, and the happy couple topped off the evening with a cake designed like a 14th-century castle.
And what would a celebrity wedding be without hovering aircraft? Not to worry. Several paparazzi-powered helicopters hung around throughout the event. But hubby, Josh, thankfully knows a thing or two about battling the paps. How’s this for a wedding shower?
Congrats to the happy couple!

Her diamond engagement ring was the only sign of wedding bells for Beth Ostrosky and her shock jock, Howard Stern since news broke of their engagement in February 2007. But last night the bling took a glorious trip down the aisle.
The 5.2 carat emerald cut diamond is estimated to be worth close to $300,000 and was designed especially for Ms. Ostrosky by Richie Winnick.
Guests Kelly Ripa (whose hubby, Mark Consuelos, officiated the ceremony), Joan Rivers, Billy Joel, Sarah Silverman and Barbara Walters all showed their support for radio’s royalty at a lavish ceremony in one of New York’s tony-est restaurants, Le Cirque. An eclectic guest list to say the least.
No stranger to controversy, Stern once said on the air that marriage to the model could spoil a good thing.
“It’s a nice feeling that we get along great,” he said in 2006. “We’re very happy, and I don’t want to (blank) it up.”
It’s official. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are wife and wife. Twenty wedding guests dressed in summer formal attire made their way to the power couple’s $29 million home in Beverly Hills this Saturday, and Us Weekly reports it was a beautiful affair.
“It was all close friends and family,” said a source, adding that no celeb guests were spotted entering all day. “Before the intimate ceremony, the brides posed for pictures with Ellen’s mom and their two dogs”. Both wore Zac Posen and exchanged rings by Neil Lane. Portia’s engagement ring debuted at the Daytime Emmy Awards in June – a gorgeous marquis cut Neil Lane sparkler set with pink diamonds. It matched perfectly with her Cinderella inspired pale pink wedding dress and the pink and white flowers that were spotted making an entrance earlier that day.
DeGeneres, 50, and de Rossi, 35, have been dating since December 2004. On May 15, 2008, the day after the California Supreme Court struck down a ban on gay marriage, DeGeneres announced on her talk show that she and de Rossi were planning to tie the knot.
The audience, which included a beaming Portia, responded with a standing ovation.
Ellen then quipped: “I’ll tell you who the lucky guy is soon.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
The Today Show’s “Race to the Altar” wedding on Wednesday featured no small amount of bling. The beautiful bride, LaDonna Bradford sparkled in $1 million dollars worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by Kwiat when she wed Darnell Suggs.
LaDonna choose a necklace featuring a whopping 50 carats (hey – why not), a 20 carat diamond bracelet, and a pair of classic platinum and 10-carat stud earrings. That’s a total of 80 carats of diamonds – not including the rings themselves. To symbolize their official commitment, the couple also exchanged platinum wedding bands by Kwiat. In all, the blinging bride wore $1 million dollars of Kwiat diamonds.
The platinum rings, from Kwiat’s new bridal collection “Fidelity,” feature two individual bands of pure Platinum running parallel to each other to symbolize the couple’s intersecting love.
