Sex and the City 2: the BIG ring

23 Aug

Well over a week ago, I was blessed to have some time to myself. With having been so busy the past few months, I’ve been missing many movie theater premieres. I finally got the chance to watch Sex and the City 2.

As I sat through the two and a half hours, I thought “this movie is not as bad as everyone made it out to be”. I could not understand the 3.9 out of  10 stars it received on imdb.com…then it happened.

After Carrie calls her husband, Big, from half way across the globe to admits she’s cheated, she comes home to find it empty. Hours later, Big comes home to tell her he was absent to “torture her”, and as a punishment she is forced to wear a ring (backstory: Carrie likes to be different, and tries to do so by just wearing a wedding band – not a ring). The ring Big offers her is no ordinary ring, it’s a black diamond.

This ring was created by Itay Malkin (and is available for purchase now as part of a limited numbered series), and is a black diamond set in 18 karat white gold surrounded by 74 round natural pave diamonds equaling 0.39 carats. Beautiful adornment for adultery, no?

Once Big popped open the box, I had a clear understanding of why audiences did not care for the movie. In its obviously outlandish and semi-gaudy nature, Sex and the City 2 didn’t fail to deliver the glitz and the glamour expected of it. Throughout the 146 minutes, the issues the women faced were almost, dare I say, real? in that they were mothers, menopausal, and wives. The black diamond was merely there to bring the movie full circle. What’s SATC without a little “sparkle”?

Don’t get it confused, I will always be a fan. I enjoyed the movie, but the ring? Not sufficient enough punishment for my taste.

The Itay Malkin ring can be purchased as a special order through ItayMalkin.com or calling 888-429-4884. It retails at $10,000.

…wish I had that kind of money. LOL
