Seriously, I really like Paula Deen. Her Chocolate Bread Pudding recipe is the best I’ve ever made and it always turns out great. But it’s her diamond rings that I love the most. There is little information out there other than she was robbed of about $100,000 in jewelry (not her diamonds, thankfully) back in 2010 by a skanky housekeeper. In her husband, Michael Groover's book, My Delicious Life with Paula Deen, you will find a chapter he calls "Shopping for Paula." He uses three jewelers and especially likes Levy Jewelers in Savannah, GA. He also mentions A. & E. Jewelers and another jeweler, Michael Ross, in Mobile, AL. He trusts each one and states that he can call any of them and ask, “What would Paula like,” and they will send something out to him on approval. If she doesn’t like it, he can send it right back.
However, I’m not sure I agree with him when he says, “Buy what you like (meaning he buys what he likes, not necessarily what Paula might like). Unless a man has great taste in jewelry (and I’ve really only met a few over the years who were interested enough to pay that much attention, and they were usually weird and/or controlling), he is much better off shopping with his significant other and selecting something together, or looking in her jewelry box to see what she already has, or maybe calling his trusted selling professional in his favorite store…. another good reason to have that great salesperson who keeps a record of all your wife’s jewelry purchases.
Here is the only close up I could find of Paula’s huge diamond engagement ring. Not sure of the carat weight but could be as much as 10 carats.
|Rumor has it he designed those dahmond rings. Lucky Pawla...he looks and shops like Santa Claus.|
