Cartier Event, Bridal Exhibition Kuwait (Part 2)

Cartier is at fault of many love stories that have happened in the past decade. It will still go to inspire many to fall in love, not only with the diamonds but with the person that gives it to them. When reading the stories of the beauty icons that wore Cartier, it seem’s like your reading a fairytale. This might sound cliché, that’show we tend to feel when we listen to marvouls love stories that make the heart beat slow for it cannot belife that life can peresent it.

When that special someone has that special jewel for your beautiful skin.

 

Some of the famous women that wore Cartier for historic events are:

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Princess Grace Kelly
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge)

Most of these women are known for their styles and beauty. They haven’t only affected us fashion wise but made us girls dream of being princess and more empowered. We have come to respect these women and admire them. I for one am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth Taylor and think that she is the beautiful woman.

Queen Elizabeth wearing Williamson Diamond brooch

The Williamson Diamond is known to be the BEST pink diamond ever discovered. It was found by the Canadian geologist and royalist Dr. John Thorborn Williams who is the diamond is named after. It was found at Mwadui mine in Tanganyika that was owned by Dr. John. He presented the uncut stone weighing at 54.5 CARATS to then Princess Elizabeth as a wedding gift.

After that the diamond was cut by Briefel and Lemer of Clerkenwell into a 23.6 CARATS in a brilliant round shape. At first the diamond was considered to be used at the coronation. Instead the dazzling round shaped diamond was placed as the centre of a brooch of a jonquil flower designed by Frederick Mew Cartier in 1953. The brooch contains 170 small brilliant-cut diamonds, 12 baguette-cut diamonds and 21 marquise diamonds, which were used to form the petals, stalk and the leaves of this brooch. Now that’s a BROOH worth having!

Grace Kelly wearing her engagement ring of the film set High Society

Princess Grace Kelly’s engagement was itself as one of the GLAMOURISE events in modern day history. Not only because a stylish Hollywood actress was getting married to a prince, not just a prince but the prince of Monaco. What really made the headlines then was the ring that Grace Kelly was given. The ring was a FABOULSE 10.47 CARTS the first BIG ring to be given out by a European Monarchy. The reason why Prince Rainier III gave that big ring to Grace Kelly was so he could fit in of the glamour of Hollywood and there well known engagement rings.

On January 1956 the prince gave and announced his engagement to Grace Kelly. The ring that he presented here was platinum from Cartier, where it had an emerald-cut diamond 10.47 CARATS with two baguette-cut diamonds on each side. This ring was perfect showing the delicacy of the actress and that it showed the belief that Grace had that LESS IS MORE when it comes to style. THAT IS AN ENGAGMENT RING WE ALL GIRLS DREAM OF!

 

Elizabeth Taylor at Podium to Present Academy Award

Elizabeth Taylor wearing the “Burton Diamond” at Princess Grace Kelly’s 40th birthday party at Monaco

History has shown us so many great love stories, sadly most are fiction. However there is love story that is true and has inspired other lovers, the love that we between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The love they had lasted for decades even though they have been divorced twice. When asked they use to refer to each other as their greats love even though both have remarried.

Richard Burton bought a ring from Cartier that then it cost him 1.1 million dollars, all just he insulted Elizabeth’s hands. Then after she saw that the diamond 69.42 CARATS was too BIG for a ring so she had made into a necklace.

 The stone was found in Premier Mine in South Africa in 1966 which weighed 241 CARTS! It was then cut by Harry Winston to 69.42 CARTS into a pear shape. Burton bought the diamond from Cartier to present it to Taylor. I personally wouldn’t say no to that necklace, would you?

Kate Middleton waring the Cartier Halo Tiara on her wedding to Prince William

The Halo Tiara was made in 1936 by Cartier and was purchased by the Duke of York, who later became King George VI before 3 week becoming king (Elizabeth’s Father) for his Duchess wife Queen Elizabeth’s mother (known later as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother). Queen Elizabeth lent Kate Middleton the Halo Tiara which was given to her on her 18th birthday by her mother.

The tiara was borrowed then by The Queen Mother’s daughter Princess Margaret to wear the Halo Scroll Tiara to the 1953 coronation. This is when then the Queen Elizabeth was crowned. Later in 1973 it was lent to Queen Elizabeth’s daughter Princess Anne before she received her own tiara.

Many years later the Halo Tiara was lent to Kate Middleton to wear on her wedding day, the she married Prince William. So you see this tiara has a long history and we very will kept in the family. The question is will I or you be next to borrow it? :p (fingers crossed :p )

 

Here are just some of the amazing-historic jewellery that Cartier has made and sold. We alone that there still more to come and we cannot wait to see what other remarkable diamonds we will be able to see. However, the real question, who’s next to be wearing a LEGENDAY piece from Cartier.

 

Stay Lovely,

Cartier Event, Bridal Exhibition Kuwait (Part 1)

When speaking of luxury the first thing that comes to mind is diamonds. They are a rare beauty that can be shinned on a women’s neck. The rare beauty that enlightens the love between two that want to spend years forever together. Cartier has always been my top luxury brand of diamonds. When entering any store you feel like an important person and all the fabulous jewels lay for your eyes.

For so many years red has been known as the colour of love and royalty. Cartier has chosen this symbol to make us fall in love. It makes the woman that holds the Cartier bag feel as if she is a princess.

This blog post will be split into two parts; this first part I will show you pictures of my time during the exhibition at Cartier. The second blog post I will be talking about and showing you remarkable pictures of beauty icons that are connected and have fallen in love because of Cartier.

On the other hand I stayed home finishing some school work and stuff around. Then after my mum had to go to work and my brothers were out, which that left me all alone at home. So I called on of my really close friends to come over for tea (GREEN TEA). We stayed in talked and ordered in some food. I didn’t get dressed up or anything, we were staying at home. So I just had to look presentable yet feel comfortable!

The Zebra-Jungle look!

So today I thought of going a bit wild! I’m not really the type of girl that wears animal prints, but I realised that I liked animal print tops that wear a bit long and that I was able to pay around with them. So when my mum got me this zebra print top I loved it!! So going to uni in a wild look, now that is a first time for everything! 😀

The Humidity Look

In Kuwait a week ago it was very humid, the humidity level was high. I don’t know the percentage of it but the stickiness in the air was unbelievable! I had so many things to do that day; I had to go to the gym, meet up with my cousin, have lunch with and just hang out. For starters I needed to wear something that wouldn’t let me sweat as much, and the answer was something COTTON! If I wore jeans it would be the biggest mistake or anything that contained polyester.  Make-up was a NO NO on that day, it would have been very bad for the skin. The IDEAL thing for me to wear when its humid is a dress, and that’s what I wore :D.

The best part was that the dress was GREEN! My favourite colour

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Sunglass: Vogue
  • Dress: Cost
  • Slippers: Graceland
  • Gym Bag: Armani
  • Bag: LV
  • Watch: Casio
  • Stud Earrings: H&M
  • Watch: Casio
  • Bracelet: Cartier

Stay Lovely,

Eid Clothes!

The best part of Eid for me is the new clothes part and I can safely say most girls feel the same way too! I remember when I was younger I couldn’t wait for my mum to tell me it’s time to go and buy Eid clothes. For one thing I would take a day off school just to go shopping with my mum for new clothes; this would be in the morning when the malls are less crowded and empty. It’s the most silent time for shopping. I would go and pick out 3 outfits for Eid and I couldn’t wait to go and let my family see my NEW EID CLOTHES!

As I got older getting ready for Eid became a bit more complicated. I had to go to the salon get myself pampered and ready for Eid, get my hair, nails and everything done! Back then I would by 3 outfits for Eid, but now I would only buy one outfit (and sometimes a new bag to go with it) because that outfit would already be THE PRICE OF 3 (but not always)!I would only wear that outfit for the family gathering and then maybe if we went to “some place nice”. However, in all matters getting ready and pampering myself for Eid is so much fun and the feeling is just amazing! 😀

My Eid clothes!

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Scarf: Alexander McQueen
  • T0p: Kooki
  • Belt: Gucci
  • Skirt: River Island
  • Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
  • Sunglass: Vogue
  • Bracelet Bangles: Chanel
  • Bracelet: Cartier rose-gold love
  • Ring: Bvlgari rose-good and white ceramic
  • Earrings: Chanel

Before I left the house I wore my Rolex watch which I always wear (it’s mentioned in other posts) and I even wore my black Chanel that is mention in my post “The Simple Summer Look”. I will try later on to post that bag on a separate post to show it more clearly.

Stay Lovely,
