Ever a fan of fabulous photos....here are a few from backstage during fashion week snapped by the dutch model, Iekeliene Strange....I personally love the one below and the one of the Sonia Rykeil model (see her signature flame red wig)....Enjoy!

Thanks to a hint from a good friend of mine (check out her blog here), I was introduced to this magnificent line of rough cut diamonds....
Straight from the horse's mouth, here is a moving quote from the Ruff & Cut website....
Inspired by the timeless and intrinsic beauty of the rough diamond, the Ruff&Cut Collection makes social responsibility at once effortless and luxurious.
Each diamond, conflict-free and as yet untampered with by human hands, exhibits a vital beauty that is undeniable. The marriage of this beauty with recycled metals in organic shapes and distinctive silhouettes articulates and honors the singular splendor of the land and the peoples who bring these precious things into the world.
Every piece of Ruff&Cut jewelry is an heirloom-in-waiting.
All in all, I have to say I am totally infatuated with the principle behind this jewelry, the 'one of a kind' quality and ingenious design behind this work....now if only it was in the budget....
