Catherine Angiel, who truly put Black Diamonds on the map, was featured in Life & Style this past week because of the inspiration from the 5ct Black Diamond Big gives Carrie at the end of SATC2.
Black Diamonds are being more and more recognized. When is the last time that you saw somebody wearing a black diamond ring? It’s truly a unique stone and gives more character to today’s already impeccable designs.
However, Ms. Anigel has been using Black Diamonds in her designs for years; I’m happy to see that the rest of the fashion world is finally catching up!
Black diamond gets play in ‘Sex and the City 2’ – National Jeweler
New York–Spoiler alert! Sex and the City fans will remember that at the end of the 2008 film, Carrie Bradshaw got engaged with a diamond-encrusted shoe rather than a diamond-encrusted ring. While it seemed a fitting engagement for the die-hard fashionista, fans who might have been gunning to see Carrie get a ring will finally get their wish.
Back for another round in Sex and the City 2, which opened at the No. 2 spot at the box office this weekend, Carrie and her trio of best friends, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte, sport jewelry throughout, but the piece that’s getting fans talking is a 5-carat diamond ring from designer Itay Malkin.
The hefty carat weight makes for a talking point of its own, but the real buzz factor is the diamond’s hue. For fearless fashionista Carrie–who was ready to get married in the first film wearing a bright blue feather on her head–a crystal clear diamond ring just wouldn’t do.
In the final scene, Carrie’s longtime love, Big, presents her with a black diamond ring, explaining “because you are not like anyone else.”
