Ariana Grande OWNED 2018, there is absolutely zero question about that.

It's looking like 2019 will be yet another year of the Ari, after she released her pink-infused Tokyo themed music video for 7 Rings. 

"Whoever said money can't solve your problems, must not have had enough money to solve 'em. They say, "Which one?" I say, "Nah, I want all of 'em" = The life we both want and deserve.

It's a badass anthem of female empowerment, and touches on her past heartbreak and current happiness as a single, but powerful woman. YAS GURL.

The track is an ode to her best friends, and the rhythm and lyrics are inspired by The Sound of Music's classic tune My Favourite Things.

"Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no 'Mrs', bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches. I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches, think retail therapy's my new addiction," she croons. GET IT HENNY.

"Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad b*tch. Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?" she sings, on top of a kitchen island, looking INCREDIBLE.

She's seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses, it would seem. From sexy ensembles abundant to unreal feminist themes while dancing ironically in a kitchen setting, the video is set to be a hit.

Let's examine the best Easter egg aspects to the video, for scientific purposes only. Naturally, her fans have gone WILD over the GRRL power video, with glitter and pink everywhere to be seen.

She embraces her wealth, suggesting that in fact, money can buy her happiness and retail therapy can help her to recover from break-ups. Why not, gal. Why not.

Ariana was definitely inspired by the hip-hop industry, her glamorous pink fur coat is sure to inspire fashion trends, and her new-found confidence at her hard-earned cash is reminiscent of male rappers.

Memes are also sure to be hoppin' online, we're seeing some absolute gems already:

1. A Rap Goddess is born

Ari raps now? The Sweetener songstress makes her love for the finer things in life well known in the video.

From "lashes and diamonds" to "ATM machines" and "breakfast at Tiffany's," Ari lives the high life on her own terms and her own earnings.

True Arianators will notice that the intro for 7 Rings is suspiciously similar to the one included in the music video for Thank U, Next. Our gal-pal Ari was dropping hints WEEKS ago.

2. It's a Squad Session

Her best friends joined in on the video action and are all featured as "six of my b*tches." 

Ariana gifted these six lucky women to Tiffany & Co. rings on a day out in New York City, hence their starring roles.

She revealed on Twitter that the inspiration happened on a "pretty rough day in NYC", after which her besties brought her to Tiffany for "way too much champagne". That's our regular Saturday, sure.

 Ariana shared at the time. "On the way back to the studio, Njomza was like, 'Bitch, this gotta be a song lol.' So we wrote it that afternoon."

3. Mac Miller's best friend has a cameo

Singer-songwriter Njomza was a close friend of the late rapper, and Ari's ex-boyfriend. The pair frequently collaborated, and Njomza made sure to perform at Miller's tribute concert last October.

Ari gifted him with one of the six rings, presumably as a nod to their paralleling loss.

4. A gal's best friend is her dog

Ariana's doggo Toulouse is renowned in the celebrity pooch world, and even ended up making an appearance in one scene of the video because he "literally wouldn't leave" while filming.

Attention seeker much?

5. The signature ponytail gets a role

Grande's go-to hairdo had to get a shout out, it's been her guiding light since she released her latest album, which rocketed up the charts.

After dying her hair red for years on Nickelodeon's Victorious, she was compelled to use hair extensions to cover up the damage.

She's now embracing her longer-than-life tresses, with the lyric; "You like my hair? / Gee thanks, just bought it…" 

7 Rings marks the second single from Grande's upcoming album, thank u, next, after Imagine was released.

The album marks her new ability to drop music whenever she wants, a hip-hop trait which has been predominantly used by male rappers, and made famous by Beyoncé.

The album is sure to be as big a hit as Sweetener, the more amazing girl-power music from Princess Ari, the better. 



The A/W 18 Collection for Thomas Sabo has landed and it is truly breathtaking – think iconic, vintage styles that are timeless. 

The Sterling Silver celebrates the art of mismatching – it creates a strong and authentic aesthetic for the wearer. Sounds fabulous, right?

It can't be argued that Thomas Sabo is redefining what classic jewellery means. 

 Rose Gold Vintage ring

Brand heritage is woven deep into this new collection, featuring a collection called the Spirit Moonphase Movement 1984 which represents the creation of the THOMAS SABO brand. 

In addition to that, there is the stunning Kingdom Of Dreams collection, which is geared towards the expressive wearer.

Finally, there is a collection of creative rings, chains and medallions for everyone to wear.

Yellow Gold Crown Kingdom Of Dreams ring

A boho or vintage lover? Then the retro styles will be right up your street! 

Every piece of jewellery has a special vintage touch – the rings are decorated with fine diamonds, and the medallions radiate with nostalgia as they have space inside to pop a picture of a loved one – how cute!

In keeping with this theme, even the watches have been slimmed down, with the Mini Vintage watches being inspired by art deco styles of bygone eras.

This absolutely beautiful collection is available from the end of July online and across THOMAS SABO counters in Ireland.

We for one will be draping ourself in these jewels, what about you? 



If you like makeup, and especially makeup tutorials on YouTube, you must know and love Lisa Eldridge.

Currently global creative director of Lancôme, the British makeup artist have been producing the best videos and we swear by her universally chic makeup look and her acne covering makeup.

If you have been watching Lisa's videos, you must also have noticed the gorgeous rings she sports as she applies makeup. And you are not the only one. 

Designed by William Welstead, the rings that she stacks have been her signature and apparently, they have been inspiring countless copycats. 

“When I noticed companies were selling rings using my name, that was the moment I was like, ‘This is crazy,’ ” said Eldridge to Vogue.

Her passion for the gems has made her become a close friend of Welstead and the pair has collaborated to create the Lisa Eldridge Collection, launching tomorrow at London Dover Street Market.

Consisting of 25 gold and sterling silver rings, the collection is set with stone shades reminding the colour palette of an eye shadow box. All the stones have been sourced by Welstead in Bangkok and India. 

As for the price point, the collection will be more affordable than Welstead's namesake work, ranging from 400 to 750 euros. 



Emma Watson has taken to social media to appeal to the public for help in locating three silver rings which she lost during a recent trip to a London spa.

The Harry Potter actress shared shots of the rings and explained that they are of enormous sentimental value.

"Reward for information leading to the return of rings lost Sunday 16th July at Mandarin Oriental Spa, London," she began the Facebook post which has been liked more than 38,000 times in mere hours.

"On Sunday afternoon I went for a treatment at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Spa in Hyde Park, London. Before my appointment I removed 3 silver rings from my fingers and put them in the safe inside the locker. When I left, I forgot to take my rings from the safe."

"When I got home I realised the rings were not on my hands and I called the spa, but at this time the spa was closed. Security checked the safe and said there was nothing in it but that the spa would be open again in the morning and they could speak to them then and see if they had them or if anyone had handed them in."

27-year-old Emma opened up about the story behind one of the rings in an effort to highlight their personal importance.

"As of now they are missing. Were these just any rings I could accept this, but one of the them was a gift from my Mum. She bought it the day after I was born and wore it for 18 years, never taking it off, and then gave it to me for my 18th birthday. I wear this ring everyday, it is my most meaningful and special possession."

Urging her fans and followers to spread the word, the much-loved actress insisted that she would be happy to move on and forget the incident if it meant the jewellery could be safely returned to her.

"If anyone was at the Mandarin Oriental Spa on Sunday from 3pm onwards and saw the rings or accidentally picked them up or knows anything about them, I cannot express how much it would mean if they came back to me – no questions asked. If you have seen them or have any information please email: findthering@outlook.com."

Fans and followers of the British actress have responded in their droves, with many recalling Emma speaking about her rings in the past.

"I remember you talking about this ring in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live promoting Beauty and the Beast, you said that this ring inspired the pinky ring you wore in the film. I sincerely hope the rings are returned to you safe and sound," they wrote.

We're with them.


While the world’s been busy obsessing over Kylie Jenner’s humongous promise ring, it looks like her famous momager has gone and got a sparkler all of her own.

Stepping out at a star studded charity event in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, 60-year-old Kris Jenner was snapped wearing a sizeable diamond ring on her ring finger.

Meanwhile her 35-year-old boo Corey Gamble – who Kris has been seeing since 2014 – was also spotted with a sparkling band.

According to the Mail Online, this isn’t the first time the pair have sparked engagement rumours as back in November they were also seen sporting the impressive set of rings.

At the time Star reported that Kris was using the rocks to test how the public would respond to the possibility of she and her music executive partner getting married.

Since the jewels are now officially back on, it looks like Kris could well be ready to move forward with Corey.

Forget dogs or diamonds, RINGS are a girl's best friend. 

Wear as a statement piece or stack them up in all of their glory, rings are turning out to be a major trend this spring.

And to be bang on trend, we have these gorgeous Alex & Ani rings to give away.

We have a 'illumination, beauty and resilience' charm ring as well as a 'hand of fatima' silver ring up for grabs.

But you need to be in it to win it, so head over to our Facebook or Instagram page to enter.

Good luck ladies!


As the unveiling of any totally OTT festive perfume confirms – fragrance trends are big business.

Yup, everything from your eyebrows to your Saint Laurent snake-effect leather ankle boots can be on fleek but it won’t mean a tap if you also don’t smell right.

At least your jewellery can help out; sweet-smelling accessories are now very much a thing.

Leading the pack is most definitely David Yurman – which has just released its Bubblegum Pinky Collection: a series of oh-so cool rings complete with a choice of bubblegum, grape, peppermint, licorice, or candy floss aromas. 

It already has a load of celeb fans – including Rita Ora, who just weeks ago was gushing about the range on social media – and stylists are clamouring over one another to get their hands on one of the pieces.


Obsessed with these #bubblegumpinky rings! Thank you @davidyurman

But it's not just David Yurman. Fellow designers such as Kilian Hennessy (a Frenchman with distinctly Irish roots – he’s part of the Hennessy cognac dynasty) are driving the trend into 2016 too.

Kilian, who launched his perfume house in 2007, recently introduced an art deco Lights And Reflections collection. Included are chunky rings that contain subtle ceramic cubes ready to be sprayed with any of his signature 35 scents.

Jade Trau (Cara Delevingne is a big fan) has created an oversized locket ring fitted with solid perfume inside, and last year, new brand OBO Paris launched its “wearable and leak-proof bottle of perfume,” – 3mls of fragrance to carry around with you in one of its rings, bracelets or necklaces.

It's pretty AND it's filled with solid perfume to help navigate the lovely odors of steamy hot NYC days ohhhh…gotta…

Posted by Jade Trau on Wednesday, 8 July 2015


The Parisian designer behind the brand, 30-year-old Julien Cohen, said at the time of the unveiling that he “wanted to make a beautiful accessory that can perfume your skin”.

Meanwhile, Lisa Hoffman, wife of actor Dustin, has also released fragrance within jewellery via her Lisa Hoffman Beauty brand.

And rather than apply fragrance directly to your skin, this range – which counts Amber Heard and Halle Berry among its many Hollywood fans – instead uses tiny fragrance beads which are housed inside charms. 

“Our fragrance beads are eco-friendly and made from the highest standard of pure perfume,” she says on her website.

“Each piece of jewellery comes with refillable fragrance beads so you can easily refresh the scent in your charm.”


They shocked their fans back in July when they jointly announced their breakup on Twitter. 

But two months on, Vogue Williams has revealed that she doesn't miss her wedding and engagement rings too much – because Brian McFadden, 35, never actually asked for them back.

"They're so heavy!" she said of the spectacular 4ct, square-cut stone engagement ring and diamond-encrusted wedding band that she wore for three years following their September 2012 nuptials.  

"And I still have them, he didn't ask for them back!"

Certainly the duo remain on great terms – with Ms Williams commenting that she thinks her estranged spouse's new single, Call On Me Brother, is "brilliant".

"I'll definitely be at Whelan's to support him," the 29-year-old DJ added, referring to his recently-announced gig at the popular Dublin venue on November 4.

"Everyone thinks it's so weird we're still friends, but we were best friends from the start so even though it's really hard to break up I'd hate to lose him as a friend."

However, Vogue admitted that retaining their closeness will eventually prove challenging: "It definitely won't always be as easy as it is now to stay friends… we're not seeing other people at the moment but when those things change it'll be harder.

"For now we're trying to stay mature and not publicly kill each other."

Dublin-native Ms Williams was speaking at the launch of RTE 2's new autumn schedule, which took place at the station's Montrose campus. 

A total of 30 new series and 18 documentaries were announced for the forthcoming season, with Vogue herself fronting Mean Girls, a three-part show where she meets sexually adventurous, MMA fighting and law-breaking women who defy traditional perceptions of the ‘fairer sex’.



Kendall Jenner may seem too young to get married – but she doesn’t see it that way!

The young model uploaded this photo of her rocking not one, but two huge sparklers on her ring finger with the caption: “No ones putting a ring on it so I put two.”

Kendall was seen wearing the massive diamonds at the Cannes Film Festival in France recently.

We have a feeling that if the stunning model wanted someone to put a ring on it, she wouldn’t have too much trouble!

Wonder if she borrowed her big sis, Kim’s ring for the event? These certainly look like they could rival the bride-to-be’s!




Picking out an engagement ring can be daunting – does it suit, is it practical, will you still like it in fifty years?

You have to be careful not to pick trends over classics because trends are always changing whereas your engagement ring will be the same for many, many years to come.

We picked out a few cuts we think will never go out of fashion. Every woman is different and your engagement ring should reflect who you are – do you see your perfect ring below?

1. Radiant
Wowsa, this looks like it would weigh us down! Of course it doesn’t have to be quite so elaborate but the idea of a radiant cut is that it emits maximum sparkle potential and is designed to stand out and demand attention, perfect!


2. Baguette
Simple and subtle, this baguette cut engagement ring is classic and understated.


3. Trillion
The trillion diamond is most often seen as a side stone rather than the main solitaire. Unique and beautiful!


4. Marquise
Historically designed by King Louis XIV, this cut is striking and has a hint of vintage about it.


5. Colour
Diamonds aren’t for everybody – some girls love something a little different. Sapphires are very popular as engagement rings, especially following Kate Middleton inheritance of Princess Diana’s beautiful sapphire engagement ring. Rubies, emeralds and champagne coloured sapphires are also popular.


6. Vintage/vintage inspired
As we already said, some women prefer something different. Vintage or vintage inspired engagement rings can be beautiful and have historical significance which many people would love.
