Diamonds and celebrities go together like peanut butter and jelly, but these precious stones are not the only gems adorning the stars. Celebs are getting more creative with their jewelry choices, and this includes welcoming precious stones such as rubies and sapphires into their jewelry collections. Just recently the glamorous Rihanna was photographed wearing a stunning Zac Posen off the shoulder rose satin gown complemented by a Chopard diamond and ruby pendant necklace. The “Diamonds” singer also displayed stunning ruby and sapphire rings and a ruby bracelet. Learn a little more about gemstones!
First Annual Diamond Ball
The 26-year-old pop singer does not only sing about diamonds and wear them, but she now also hosts an annual Diamond Ball, geared toward raising money for charity. In honor of her first annual ball, Rihanna cleaned up her normally racy look by wearing a sophisticated yet curve-hugging gown. The festive attire also highlighted her elegant Chopard necklace, which showcased a very large ruby. The event was held at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills, California.
Rihanna’s getup was truly perfected by her Ruby necklace. Hanging from a large diamond necklace, the massive precious stone could be spotted a mile away. Though both her dress and jewelry were quite noticeable, they were by no means overdone. The young star manages to get away with the boldest of looks, including one that boasts an eye-catching necklace, show-stopping gown, and statement makeup and hairstyle.
The Rings and Bracelet
As if her gown and necklace weren’t enough, Rihanna chose several substantial gemstone rings to complete her regal look. On one hand she wore two rings, one sporting a sapphire and the other, a ruby. Both rings were similar to the pendant setting. On the other hand, Rihanna wore yet another ruby ring. This one also matched the other jewelry items, but this ring’s stone was far larger than the others. On her tattooed wrist Rihanna wore an intricate cuff bracelet set with rubies.
If the “Queen of Diamonds” herself can show up at her very first “Diamond” benefit ball covered in precious gemstone jewelry, and not just diamonds, this is a clear indication that Hollywood is opening its arms to a rainbow of colored gems. Diamonds are sensational, but as we can clearly see from Rihanna’s ravishing appearance, there is plenty of room for color gemstones as well.
