This Is Officially the New “Everyday” Jewelry Look of 2021

Call me a pessimist, but I truly never thought the day would come when delicate gold layering jewelry would meet its match. For years now, simple stacking rings, tamely layered tiny gold chains, and average-size hoops have been the go-to jewelry assortment of fashion girls everywhere. Even the recent(ish) introduction of heavier chains felt like a daunting departure from the minimalistic look we were all so accustomed to, so you better believe we were floored once colorful, chunky, loud, statement-making pieces emerged as the new everyday jewelry trend in 2021. 

Brands like Roxanne Assoulin, Éliou, and La Manso really led

Diamond Day! Scott Disick, Amelia Gray Hamlin Go Jewelry Shopping: Pics

These rocks won’t lose their shape! Scott Disick and Amelia Gray Hamlin are still going strong, hitting a high-end jewelry store for a little bit of browsing.

On Thursday, April 8, the couple were photographed shopping in downtown Miami with a bodyguard in tow. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 37, and the model, 19, have been in the Sunshine State all week.

Though their destination was a luxury boutique, the pair both opted for casual outfits. Hamlin looked relaxed in a black tank top, denim cutoffs and black slides, while Disick kept it comfortable in camo shorts

Shaq Went Jewelry Shopping And Casually Paid For A Stranger’s Engagement Ring

Most people’s engagement stories are romantic or at least worth retelling, but not many engagement ring purchase stories are … unless they involve Shaquille O’Neal.

The NBA legend was seen in a Zales jewelry store earlier this week, looking to buy some earrings, when he came upon a man trying to pay for an engagement ring. Eager to help, O’Neal stepped in and footed the bill for the man.

Naturally, video of the sweet moment ended up online and made the rounds on social media.

In an appearance on NBA on TNT the following day, the former basketball player explained

California teen allegedly stole $40,000 in jewelry on home tour

A well-dressed teenager driving an expensive car was allowed to wander unaccompanied in a Southern California mansion for sale — and he allegedly took $40,000 of jewelry during his self-guided tour, police say.

The theft from the Thousand Oaks home was reported two days after the March 13 open house, said the police report. Last week, a 16-year-old from Camarillo was arrested.

The agent said the suspect seemed young and “out of place,” but he claimed to be 23 years old and had a financial document that was required for an appointment to tour the house, which is on the

Of Course Donald Trump Crashed a Wedding and Gave a Rambling, Incoherent Speech About Biden, Iran, and China

One wedding-related fear many people have is the prospect of a drunk guest grabbing the mic and, through slurred words, asking everyone to take their seats so they can just “say a couple of words,” tripping over the bandleader’s foot in the process and yelling, “Hey, man, watch where you’re going!” before launching into a rambling, incoherent speech about how they and the bride were supposed to be together before the groom came along and stole her. Presumably fewer, if any, have ever worried about a former president of the United States wandering into their reception and giving a toast

Instagram Shopping Has Been a Bright Spot in a Dark Year

The degree of precision that the algorithm has developed creeps me—and lots of other users—out. But I also kind of like it. I like the tasteful mesh bras that I have since ordered in bulk. I love Arq’s cultish high-rise underwear. Kate McLeod’s moisturizing “stones,” best described as solid sticks of butter that melt on contact with skin, were a revelation. The entire experience of shopping via Instagram reminded me of one of the best prepandemic activities: the mindless browse. It’s hard to believe now, but once upon a time, in between errands downtown or on a

‘Paris to Hollywood’ Puts Iconic Couple’s Fashion Sense On Display At Denver Art Museum

“I discovered this huge collection that she has kept not only of several hundred dresses, but also documents and photography. All sorts of souvenirs about her mother and her father as well,” she said. 

Müller used archives at couture houses in Paris for research. About half the dresses on display are original samples from fashion shows.

“Véronique was very good friends with many couturiers like Hubert de Givenchy, André Courrèges, Yves Saint Laurent, and she was able to be dressed with these original designs,” which was not a common practice at the time, she added.
