Congratulations to the new Miss Universe!

Congratulations to the new Miss Universe – Miss Stefania Fernandez from Venezuela. For the first time in Miss Universe history, the same nation won the contest for two years in a row! Last year's Miss Universe was Dayana Mendoza from Venezuela.

The crown that illuminates Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez was selected by the votes of thousands of people across the globe via Diamond Nexus Labs’ “Choose The Crown” website. Of the three potential crown designs – Hope, Peace, and Unity – Peace was the ultimate winner.

This crown, arrayed with over a thousand pristine lab-created jewels, is accented by a series of deep, flawless cultured rubies to represent Miss Universe’s tireless campaign to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and education. The crown’s repeating oval pattern was inspired by the crowns of modern monarchs to reflect the regality and grace of this exquisite woman. As the first eco-friendly jeweler in history to partner with the Miss Universe Organization, Diamond Nexus Labs is thrilled and honored to have created this masterpiece.

Just Married! Nicole and Damien Walk Down the Aisle in DNL Style

Congratulations to New York’s ‘Biggest Loser’ couple – the new Mr. and Mrs. Damien Gurganious! Nicole and Damien tied the knot today in Long Island City, NY after losing a combined 264 pounds! Diamond Nexus Labs was thrilled to be a part of their special day by providing jewelry for the bridal party. Bridesmaids wore the Island Girl pendant and Leto pear cut drop earrings and Nicole chose between a few different pairs of earrings – including Dew, Never Too Late and the Ida’s.



As a tribute to her late mother, Nicole also wore a beautiful Wisdom of the Heart ring on her right ring finger. The Wisdom of the Heart ring features an innovative hinged band, designed to open lengthwise to reveal a loving message inscribed in the center. Nicole’s ring is engraved to remind her that her mom is always with her – especially on her wedding day.
