In today’s news – another group of children in a remote African village starved yet another day.

A couple thousand Americans had their homes foreclosed.

Meanwhile, Christie’s announced its fall sale of magnificent jewellery, Jewels: The Hong Kong Sale!

It takes place on December 2 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Buyers will flock to get their hands on an exquisite selection of over 300 extraordinary jewels across a spectrum of taste and style — from the rarest of white and coloured diamonds to important coloured stones.

If you’ve got US$1,500,000-2,500,000 to spare–and a private jet to zoom you over to Hong Kong, one of these might tickle your fancy.


Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches has signed Olympic gold medal basketball team member Dwight Howard as its official NBA Brand Ambassador.

Apparently, it’s in honor of Dwight’s efforts to help bring the US team back to glory with their Olympic win.

Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches designed a full-pave, $100,000 diamond watch for him. The NBA star will be making a series of in-store appearances at select Armaan retailers in the US in 2008 and 2009.

Just in case you still don’t know who he is…

Dwight Howard plays forward center on the NBA Orlando Magic team and is a member of the NBA All-Star Team. Howard, who is one of the top rebounders in the sport, was the No. 1 pick out of high school for the 2004 NBA draft. He was selected as one of the 12 players for Team USA for the Beijing 2008 Games along with basketball superstars Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.


Diamonds International is currently offering free bracelets, earrings and necklaces on their web site,, for those who are strapped for cash but still want to sparkle.

Anyone who wishes to claim their free jewelry can go to and place an order.

There are no strings attached, they say – customers pay only $3.45 shipping and handling.

Why are they doing this?!

“We’re just trying to show our customers that we appreciate their business,” says Isaac Klugmann, a VP at DI. “We know that with the rising cost of gas, food and other basic essentials, most people don’t have much left in their budget for jewelry.” 

Diamonds International is a recognized brand for many Caribbean travelers and cruise passengers. It has more than 125 locations throughout the USA, Mexico and the Caribbean.

I’ve placed my order. I’ll let you know how it goes!
