Diamond Dust

One of the best television shows of all time had to be Arrested Development, a zany documentary style comedy about a dysfunctional and slightly criminal family involved in financial scandal. Jason Batemen played Micheal Bluth, a widower with a confused teenage son (George-Micheal played by Michael Cera who is currently starring in Superbad) and completely self centered and insane extended family. Hijinks ensue.

One of the more hilarious incidents involves George-Micheal purchasing diamond dust for his girlfriend Ann. At a later point, his uncle, Tobias smears the diamond dust all over his body causing him to look like a giant silver member of the blue man group. I won't even attempt to explain further--just netflix it!

So, what does a necklace have to do with it all? I was perusing the Internet and I ran across a collection of diamond dust encased in jewelry at Individual Icons. It was just too perfect so I had to post it for all of my fellow Arrested Development fans. A quick Google search turned up at least one other source of diamond dust jewelry: Uncommon Goods. Individual Icons has a wider selection, including cuff links, but is a little pricier. Another product that Arrested Development fans might get a kick out of is the crushed pearl powder released by Fresh as part of the now discontinued Memoirs of Geisha line. I actually purchased this powder and it is divine! It makes my uber pale skin glow and shimmer in a way that makes one wonder why anybody would ever tan. The only draw back is that every time my husband sees the package he giggles because all he can think is "diamond dust."

There are so many classic moments, you should netflix all three seasons! I think my favorite character might be Tobias, the analrapist (his own combination of analyst and therapist) who is nevernude in his little denim daisy dukes.
