Brides Should Invest in Platinum Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands - Monique Lhuillier

Fashion and Bridal Designer Monique Lhuillier Encourages Brides to Invest in Platinum Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands

MUMBAI, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Platinum, a beautiful symbol of eternal love and emotional commitment, has been know to be the most coveted metal for centuries and a popular choice for engagement rings and weddings bands. It's a precious and everlasting expression that appeals to the discerning consumer. Internationally renowned jewellery and fashion designer Monique Lhuillier shares her timely tips on how to choose the perfect platinum engagement rings and celebrates the individuality of brides-to-be by offering ring styles that are as distinctive as her wedding gowns.

An icon in her industry, Monique is revered internationally for her exquisite bridal and ready-to-wear collections that capture the essence of sophisticated luxury by provoking femininity, allure and glamour. Monique's bridal designs have been donned by Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood and Ginnifer Goodwin for their weddings. Her platinum engagement rings give a nod to the individuality of the millennial bride and this season she encourages brides to invest in platinum. Its long-lasting, natural white beauty and durability make it the most precious of metals as well as an eternal symbol of an enduring relationship.

She believes, "Whether I'm designing a wedding gown or an engagement ring, I want my creations to last forever. Platinum's natural white beauty and durability means it will last for generations and become a family heirloom."

Her inspired platinum engagement rings showcase silhouettes for a Vintage, Modern and Romantic style bride and she shares her must-haves on engagement rings and wedding bands:

- Invest in platinum from your engagement ring: It's the perfect choice for engagement rings and wedding bands because it is naturally white so it won't change color or fade. It symbolises a relationship that will endure. Platinum's strength and durability make it the most secure setting for diamonds and precious gemstones, meaning your diamonds and gemstones are safe.

- Think beyond the diamond: "I think it's bold to have a non-traditional center stone. In my most recent jewellery collection, I introduce colored stones for the first time. Blue sapphires add elegance and distinctiveness to engagement rings and wedding bands," said Monique.

- Choose a setting that's timeless: A ring is an investment, so you want to make sure you will wear this store for years to come. It's worn everyday so it should remain timeless and reflect your personal style.

- Go custom: Adding personal style to a piece of jewellery that will last a lifetime is crucial. Customising your own ring is offered by many reputable jewellers. I partnered with where you can essentially build your engagement ring to suit your budget.

Lagos Film Society, Goethe Institute and German Consulate General Invite You To See Stigma

Lagos Film Society, Goethe Institute and German Consulate General will host the first major screening of Dagogo Diminas' film "STIGMA" tomorrow Saturday April 25, 2015 at the Nigerian Film Corporation, Old Film Unit, opposite Voice of Nigeria (VON), Ikoyi Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Time is 4 pm and it is FREE!
"STIGMA" stars top Nollywood actors Emeka Ike, Ngozi Nwosu, Soibifaa Dokubo and Dagogo Diminas who is also the director and Nigeria's leading movie makeup artist.

The life that surrounds Vanessa in the small village she lives is manageable. Her mother, Ibiso, works as the local midwife, she is the only child of an already finished relationship and her mother's job permits her to go to school.

A fiction drama about ignorance and the consequences of carelessness. But also about the power to overcome desperate situations in life, to burst one's bonds and finally to be what you want to be.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon:
"Stigma remains the single most important barrier to public action. It is a main reason why too many people are afraid to see a doctor to determine whether they have the disease, or to seek treatment if so. It helps make AIDS the silent killer, because people fear the social disgrace of speaking about it, or taking easily available precautions. Stigma is a chief reason why the AIDS epidemic continues to devastate societies around the world.
