Judge the Jewels: Mama-to-Be Rihanna’s Bejeweled Baby Bump

The singer looks comfortable and casual, but with the volume turned up just enough.

The sighting: Superstar Rihanna and her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, are expecting! The couple broke their big news by going for a stroll with the mom-to-be in a look that revealed her baby bump in high style.

The jewels: Rihanna’s pink Chanel coat opens to reveal a waterfall of necklaces with brightly colored beads, pearls, and a 1980’s Christian Lacroix cross above a multi-strand Chanel belt. The Lacroix cross was sourced from Archive Vintage and the long Chanel pearl necklace from Camilla Dietz Bergeron.

The singer is also wearing two of her favorite go-to jewels: a chunky vintage diamond ring from Briony Raymond and the customized Rolex King Midas watch by Patcharavipa.

The trends: Neck messes, the intentionally casual way of styling many necklaces together, have been the hottest thing in clavicle couture for a minute now. It’s the execution here that’s a striking departure from the norm, as we usually see lavish layering like this higher up on the torso. Add in the elaborate strands of Rihanna’s Chanel belt, and the majority of this jewelry look is focused much lower on the body than one would expect.

Do I think we’ll see hordes of people walking around in the winter with their coats unbuttoned and their bellies peeking out under tangles of high-end vintage jewelry? No. But maybe we’ll see a little more length in layered necklace looks an increased interest in jewelry-style belts.

What do we think? I find this to be a perfect celebrity moment. Rihanna had to know that paparazzi would be all over her the second she went outside showing a visible baby bump, so she orchestrated the moment on her own terms. Instead of draping herself in diamonds or flowers or wearing an elaborate formal outfit, she looks comfortable and casual…but with the volume turned up just enough that it’s still thrilling

Judgement: 14/10 for the ultimate in casually glamorous gestation

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
