Just the name Bernie Madoff makes people shudder not only in Palm Beach but all over the US. His name is synonymous with the most notorious of Ponzi schemes. He bilked many people out of hundreds of millions of dollars for over 20 years. After being convicted of the crime in 2009 he is serving his sentence at a North Carolina and is currently battling cancer.

His wife Shana had high end jewelry from all the largest jewelry designers to inexpensive funky shell necklaces that looks like they were purchased while on Holiday on a tropical island, of course all paid for by investors money. She also had an infinity for cubic zirconia jewelry, by looking at the lots for auction. Its curious to see what other people have in their jewelry collections, very interesting!
More and more celebrities are joining the ranks by creating their own collection of jewelry. An unexpected name came up in this game, Miss Janet Jackson. her new line of jewelry is called " Unbreakable Diamonds Collection. She had worn two items from her line on the BET Music awards. She had worn, a 25 ct. heart-shape fancy intense yellow diamond necklace that will retail for $2 million and a 13 ct. fancy intense yellow diamond ring that will retail for $500,000. The collection in collaboration with Paul Raps NY will be sold at his store and she will also be wearing these pieces when she begins her world tour on August 31. Her high end pieces are not for the faint of heart, and in a twist she is looking to attract the high end boutique jewelry connoisseur. She secretly married Billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012 and currently lives in Dubai. Besides the jewels can we talk about how she looks like she has not changed one bit from the 80's?!! Shes looks incredible~
