    Tears of the Gods

    In modern society, diamonds are a girl’s best friend; but in Roman and Greek mythology, diamonds are the tears of the gods. In May, the world’s most valuable gems went up for auction: the Apollo & Artemis diamonds. With their exceptionally striking colors, the blue and pink earrings were undoubtedly the most popular items at Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva. Selling for $57,425,478, the pair became the most valuable earrings ever sold at auction. The Apollo blue diamond weighed in at 14.54 carats, while its twin, the Artemis pink diamond, weighed 16 carats. One thing’s for sure, the new owner of these earrings will instantly look and feel like a Greek goddess. For more information, please visit Sothebys.com

    black brushstroke

    Kate Spade is taking its sassy flair to another department besides fashion: wall decor. In collaboration with Wendover Art Group, the all-new collection features more than 60 designs that boast feisty sayings, sketches, landscapes and bold abstracts. Perhaps one of Kate Spade’s most striking pieces is black brushstroke. Featuring bold black-and-white strokes, the art piece is hand-painted on canvas. It proves that simplicity makes the strongest impact. Available at KateSpade.com, $1,495

    Tech Chic

    In this day and age, no stylish wardrobe is complete without an eye-catching tech accessory. So why not add a timepiece to your collection that combines the savvy minds at Apple with the fashion-forward folks of Hermes? This spring, the two world-renowned brands launched new accessories for their Apple Watch collaboration. The new bands include spring shades such as blue zephyr, lime and colvert, as well as a neutral shade, fauve, so you can either follow the style trends or showcase a timeless color. Fashioned with epsom, barenia or swift leather, the watch bands come in a single tour ($399), double tour ($489) or double buckle cuff ($689). Sporting one of these down Michigan Avenue will take you from tres chic to tech chic. Available at Apple.com or Hermes.com, prices may vary

    For The Love of Rosé
