June 27, 2008





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.

    Five things you should believe before purchasing a diamond

    1. Finances. Before you buy a diamond, feel about if you really can pay for it. Even though every man wants to buy his fiancé a 5 carat diamond ring, it would be risky to arraign it on his credit card if he does not have the means to pay for it.
    2. Determine the kind of diamond that he or she wants to get. Is a small one ok, or is it size you are going for? Keep in mind a smaller diamond of better quality may be worth more than a larger diamond of less value.
    3. Choose the store. To be sure that you are getting what you pay for, it would be best if one purchases their diamonds from known dealers of stone jewelry. Since online purchases for diamonds are available, check first if they are real dealers.
    4. Certification. Real diamonds are certified. Make sure to look for a certificate before buying one.
    5. Determine the carat of preferred Diamond Jewellery to be purchased. Most jewelry stores offer the most sought-after carat, from 0.5 to 2 carat ones. Also they are priced according to such standards.
