‘Big girls need big diamonds.’ Hollywood diva Elizabeth Taylor is one of the most famous diamond lovers of all ages. She even wrote a book about her fascination for diamonds: ‘My Love Affair with Jewelry’, with photographs of her precious possessions and stories behind her diamond collection. Celebrities walk in her footsteps and wear diamonds in movies, in public places and on the red carpet. However, keep in mind that most stars just ‘borrow’ their jewelry. Let’s take a look at some other diamond lovers.
Paris Hilton is rarely shy of publicity: she likes to wear diamond earrings and diamond necklaces. As a model she showed in total diamonds that are worth more than $ 3,5 billion. The Hollywood celebrity even tweets about her diamonds! ‘Just got home from a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner with my love. He gave me the most beautiful ruby and diamond necklace. Loves it,’ she wrote on her Twitter page.
The pop icon makes her eccentric style complete with unique diamonds like her diamond engagement ring. Madonna even uses diamonds for makeup: she applies a mixture of white shadow and flawless, crushed rose-cut diamonds on her eyelids and accents the look with small diamonds to her brow bones.
Also Nicole Kidman, the mother of the red carpet, likes to wear diamonds. At the Oscars this year, she wore a 19th- century diamond necklace of 150 carats as a choker, with an open back.
Usually, brands lend diamond jewelry to celebrities in return for free publicity. At the Oscars of 2011, however, Anna Hathaway was paid to wear a diamond necklace from Tiffany’s.
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list! We will keep you updated with other diamond lover facts and stories. In the meantime, you can take a look at our diamond collection!
