Mila Kunis’ Bank Breaking Gem Facial
Celebrities are always getting wild and wacky beauty treatments, but this one really caught our eye.

Live Jewellery Auctions Are Back
After months of lockdown and online auctions, Sotheby’s has relaunched live bidding with a new auction held in Geneva on 23rd June. Part II Magnificent Jewels & Nobel Jewels – Geneva was originally meant to happen in May, but the Covid-19 outbreak led to the event being postponed. With some truly incredible diamond pieces in the bidding, we think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. The star of the show was a 3.01 carat vivid blue, step cut diamond with a clarity of VS1 that was estimated at between $4.3 and $6.3 million. Surprisingly, there were no takers, which means this remarkable ring is still waiting to be snapped up!
Neptune is Raining Diamonds

David originally proposed back in 1998 with a 3 carat marquise cut diamond then valued at £65,000. But since then, he’s added to her collection with a new ring almost every year!
