DIAMONDS IN DALLAS: De Beers will open its sixth U.S. unit on April 1 at NorthPark Center in Dallas. Located between Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York, the 1,878-square-foot boutique will feature all of De Beers' diamond jewelry collections, its new watch line and exclusive men's jewelry by Steven Webster, said Hamida Belkadi, chief operating officer of De Beers Diamond Jewelers U.S. De Beers entered Texas in September with a store at the Houston Galleria that has "exceeded our expectations and budgets," Belkadi said.

Last season, when model Erin Wasson cut her teeth as a stylist at the Alexander Wang show, she draped the models in silver finery from Rogues Gallery. This time around, she's turned jeweler herself.

Wasson, 26, is creating her own designs for Wang's presentation on Saturday, and it's a project she hopes to eventually parlay into a full jewelry line of her own.
