Early adopters of NBC’s new hit show Life have already become accustomed to the investigative acumen of “Detective Charlie Crews” played by Damian Lewis. But on last night’s episode, it was another shining star that revealed all of the clues! A set of DNA rings by rising star design house BlumLux played an integral roll as the “hero prop” that moved along the story line and helped the lead detective solve the murder in this buzz-worthy crime series.
The sleek 18k white gold and diamond men’s bands were selected because of their distinctive and unmistakably BlumLux style: refined and distinctive with an edginess that makes it decidedly sexy. Just as in real life, where BlumLux men’s jewelry helps express a man’s personal style, these rings set the lead characters apart so effectively that the rings actually helped solve the crime. Congratulations BlumLux!
Growing up, everyone has been filled with excitement upon looking up and seeing an arch of colors across the usually blue sky, at which point we have all screamed, “I think I see a rainbow!” This is how I felt, when flipping through the November 2007 issue of W Magazine I came across an article entitled, “Color Wheel: How to Buy Rare Rainbow-Hued Diamonds,” accompanied by a picture of a swirl of colored diamonds in different cuts and sizes. To make up this diamond color wheel, W used eight out of twelve diamonds from LupRocks.com member Amgad, one of the leading wholesalers and foremost experts on colored diamonds. Vice president of Amgad, Jordon Fine is quoted in the article regarding how the shape or cut of a colored diamond affects its natural color from shining, although the article also covers sizes of existing colored diamonds, the origin behind colored diamonds, and the color diamond coding system.
Run to the news stand today, and pick up W to read everything you need to know about the bright world of colored diamonds.

After attending the ever interesting and informative Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Female, a jewelry and accessories forecast presented by Brooke Rosen Lucks – Associate Accessories Editor of Cosmopolitan, we have the inside secrets to keep you in the loop on upcoming jewelry trends. Follow these five trends as they pop up in your in-scoop trend magazines, on the streets of the big city, on the big and little screen celebrities you love to watch, and hopefully on you!
1) Lions, tigers, and bears. Oh My! Animal inspired jewelry is making a roar in the upcoming season. Besides the animals that have appeared in this trend before, try something unique with a pink diamond encrusted octopus by Christian Tse, the light and airy enamel and diamond dragon fly by Rand, or the silver and diamond insect by RedStart.
2) Futuristic and architectural designed clothing are filling the pages of our favorite fashion magazines. Compliment this new look with art-deco designed jewelry like the mixed metal and diamond bands from Fana, or eye catching cuffs from Kara Ross.
3) Follow the rule of the four B’s this season: Big, bright, bold, and beautiful. Make a statement with your jewelry choice like stand out rings from Daniela Swaebe or chunky bracelets from Alexis Bittar.
4) Big chunky watches double as a time teller and a bracelet. To perfect the time telling accessory look this season give your wrist a work out with big oversized rose gold watch.
5) Express your inner-self with your outer-wear. Adorn yourself in jewelry that makes a personal statement, and that can stand alone to go with that less couture dress you may have picked up while browsing through H&M or Forever 21. Alex Woo and Carolina Bucci both offer pieces that may show the sweet yet always fashion conscious inner you.
Gossip Girls continues to facilitate great placements for Luprocks members. Leading blonde beauty Serena, Blake Lively, wore a multi-strand beaded bracelet by Kimberly Baker and two pieces by designer Judith Bright in the second episode. Serena’s mother also wore a pair of white topaz & 14k gold-filled lots o’ rocks nugget earrings by Judith Bright. Like mother like daughter – well at least on TV – Judith bright seems to be generating very positive attention. Congratulations!!

Fashion is back in vogue on TV with “Cashmere Mafia” and “Gossip Girl.”
By Ginny Chien, Special to The Times
August 8, 2007
Carrie Bradshaw, watch your back. Come fall, the fierce career-minded femmes of ABC’s “Cashmere Mafia” and the catty Upper East Side prepsters of CW’s “Gossip Girl” are looking to supplant “Sex and the City” as the most fash-savvy show on TV.
With exec producer Darren Star and costume designer Patricia Field on the credit roll — both are “Sex and the City” alums — “Cashmere Mafia” is already drawing endless comparisons to the HBO favorite. The new series, premiering in November, also features a fab four, this time led by Lucy Liu, who plays an ambitious magazine publisher. (Another show with “Sex and the City” pedigree, the Candace Bushnell-penned “Lipstick Jungle,” promises to glam up the small screen too, but it won’t debut until next year.)
