Looking at rings all day

I'm researching an article on the newest, hottest cuts in diamonds, and I've seen some gorgeous things today. I'm not sure if it was the Tacori site or the Jeff Cooper site -- I need coffee right now -- but one of them showed a display diamond that had so much fire and brilliance, it took my breath away. I had to watch the video again. So I have 45 pages of information for a 600-word piece (that's about 3 pages double-spaced for the finished product). As is my process, I'll get on the exercise bike for a half hour, mull it over, and the final edit will just come to me. I'll know exactly which parts to keep and which to carve away...kind of the same way they create a diamond cut.

And here's something fun for you to check out. Go to for info on how to book a celebrity act to come play at your wedding. Joe and I heard Vinx talking about someone paying $X to get him and his original band to fly in for their wedding, and a celebrity wedding coordinator colleague of mine mentioned her work to get the Black Eyed Peas for a wedding she was working on. Can you imagine how fun that would be? Clink, clink, clink..."And now, to perform his latest as you make your way through the buffet line...Sting!"
