A five-carat black diamond ring has captivated audiences in the newly released Sex and the City 2.
The eye-popping piece of jewelry came from designer Itay Malkin, who collaborated with the movie's star-producer Sarah Jessica Parker and costume designer Patricia Field. The ring is set in 18 karat white gold surrounded by 80 round natural white pave diamonds. Malkin's ring was chosen from more than 20 other submissions.
The Itay Malkin ring was actually kept secret due to its importance in the plot. When Big captures the heart of Carrie Bradshaw in the final scene, he presents her with the ring, telling her he is giving her the gift "because you are not like anyone else."
"It was an honor to have my design chosen for such an emotionally important scene," says Malkin, who began his jewelry line in2002. The designer will produce identical copies of the ring in a limited edition series retailing for $10,000 each.
Itay Malkin is no stranger to Sex and the City as Sarah Jessica Parker wore several of the designer's pieces in the first movie. While many of his pieces feature black diamonds, his collection includes a wide range of styles. Malkin has showrooms in New York, Beverly Hills and Miami.
