Brings Happiness and Everlasting Youth
name might suggest, the ideal aquamarine looks just like the
beautiful depths of the ocean: not too pale, not too green. A
member of the beryl family of gems, which also includes emerald,
aquamarine looks positively amazing when cut in larger sizes,
particular in rectangular and oval shapes. If you dream about
aquamarine, some say you are going to make new friends. In 1906,
Vice President William Howard Taft added to the popularity of this
gem by giving a heart-shaped aquamarine to President Roosevelt’s
daughter, Alice, as a wedding gift. The ancients believed that
aquamarine renewed married love, cured laziness and would render its
wearer fearless. Aquamarine is a universal symbol of happiness and
everlasting youth. This gem is the birthstone of March and the
official gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.

OSCAR WRAP UP
What a wild Oscar week it was for Kwiat! We received tremendous
media attention and had a blast working with our Hollywood
friends. Some of the highlights:
Teri Polo of Meet the
Parents chatted with Daisy Fuentes about the madness of Oscars week
in LA. Julian McMahon from Nip/Tuck was pumped at the chance to win
a Kwiat diamond and made a straight shot to the martini bar, but
unfortunately he only came away with a bagful of M&Ms as his prize.
Everybody’s favorite TV mother, Doris Roberts
from Everybody Loves Raymond, joined us again this year. Seems like
the Kwiat party might be her favorite on the Oscar party circuit!
Also in attendance
at the party: Shannon Lucio (The O.C.), Andrea Bowen (Desperate
Housewives), Sarah Shahi (The L Word), Jordi Molla, Trent Ford,
Garcelle Beauvais, Rena Sofer, Ashley Scott, and Marques Anderson of
the NFL’s Oakland Raiders.

the good luck charm! Brad and Lynn Bird, winners of the
Oscar for Best Animated Film for The Incredibles,
showed off the award looking incredible in Kwiat diamonds. The
producers of the Oscar winner in the Best Foreign Film category for
The Sea Inside¸ raised their Oscar high with Kwiat
jewels on their wrists and hands. This was the second consecutive
year that the Foreign Language Film winner wore Kwiat

Famous Osbournes Robbed of $2 Million
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were robbed of nearly $2 million
worth of jewelry last year at their Buckinghamshire home, just north
of London. Thieves made away with jewel-set watches, Sharon’s
diamond wedding bands, and a 24-carat sapphire ring. In a dramatic
turn, Ozzy wrestled with one of the thieves, who escaped by jumping
out a window. The Osbournes were offering a $190,000 reward for the
return of their jewels. To prevent this from happening to you, store
your jewelry in a secure, but not obvious, place. (Sharon Osbourne
kept her jewelry in her dressing room.) Make certain that your
jewelry is properly appraised and insured. Don’t try to be a hero as
Osbourne did. Thieves often have weapons and you could be hurt or
worse. But your jewelry can always be replaced.
