Thatâs what Brandon Flowers does â he refuses to go on stage to perform without removing his wedding ring. Apparently, during one of his concerts, he was going around among his fans and he later discovered that he was missing a bracelet which he had been wearing. How anyone could have taken it off his wrist was surprising but in that crowd, he probably didnât feel it being removed. So now, he has decided to be careful.
The rocker of the band The Killers just makes sure that before he goes on stage, he removes his wedding ring because he just doesnât want to lose it like he did his bracelet. As the frontman of the band, he does tend to walk into the crowd and mingle with them ad that is one of the groupâs trademarks. This incident occurred at a gig in Newcastle and it really upset him a lot. He also makes sure that he removes any other valuable pieces he might be wearing too because he doesnât like it when he loses something in this fashion. Most of all, he does not want to lose his wedding ring which is precious to him.
Brandon is married to Tara Mundkowsky and the couple has three sons. The family belongs to the LDS Church and they live in Las Vegas. The band has won several awards both in the US and the UK and that includes Grammys and Brit Awards. Brandon is a singer and a songwriter and Flamingo, his solo album which has released three years ago was a great hit.

The story about Paul McCartney throwing an engagement ring out of a window in a New York hotel happens to be included as a part of the phone hacking trial involving The News of the World. However, counsel for the defendants say that this couldnât be included as it was not a phone-hacking urce but a tip off from one of the hotel staff that led to the story. So t wasnât right on the prosecutionâs part to include this in the current trial.
It was a stunning, huge ÂŁ15,000 diamond engagement ring and hen the couple was having a fight in a New York hoel, Paul McCartney is said to have, in a fit of rage, chucked the ring out the window. The ex-Beatle was staying in that particular hotel at that time with heather Mills, his ex-fiancĂ©e. After he had done it, he apparently called the security staff in the hotel and asked them to look for the ring.
The tip off was from a man whose wife was working in the hotel, in the beauty parlour in fact. The man wanted remuneration for the tip and he approached many newspapers in the UK and finally sold it to The News of the World. He was obviously looking for the highest bidder. He communicated to them through email so the question is, why wasnât the email included in the evidence and why wasnât there a statement from the man? The problem is, there have been other celebrities who have been targeted and the suspicion points to phone hacking which revealed intimate details of their lives. The trial is ongoing and more stories tumble out every day, giving a new twist to the phone hacking scandal.

They arenât telling but Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon have been together for a number of years now. Unlike most celebrities, they prefer to keep their relationship very private and even walk apart from each other when there are media persons around. She was a part of Destinyâs Child and is now an X Factor judge. These days, she seems to walk with a spring in her step and a wide smile plastered onto her face. Together with a piece of jewellery on her finger.
So is that a massive diamond engagement ring on her finger? She seems to have put up pictures online but there is no official word from either of the two people involved yet. They havenât been seen together much and they donât make affectionate red carpet appearances together but the two are said to be very much together and very much in love. And sources say that she is very proudly showing off the stunning ring to her family and her friends. Reports say that Tim proposed last week and that she still wants to savour the moment before making it public.
There were also rumours about tattoos on their fingers which the couple is said to have got done recently. They are said to be matching and that they have been done on their ring fingers. Some say the couple is already married but the couple isnât telling. Tim is Kellyâs manager and according to close friends, the two are so happy together. Kelly had been in what a lot of people suspected to be an abusive relationship many years ago but ever since Tim has come into her life, she is very happy.

Unbelievable but true! Who would think that a woman would do such a thing? However, this is what happened â and thanks to that, a couple got engaged. And what was the deal? It was put up on Craigslist and it said that the owner was willing o exchange her wedding ring for four tickets to a much sought after football game in Kansas, America. The game is being played at the Arrowhead Stadium on the 1st of December and it will be between the Chiefs team and the Broncos team.
The owner of the wedding ring wants to stay private and she has only been referred to by the happy couple who got the ring as âRachelâ Rachelâs white gold brilliant cut wedding ring is now on Janieâs finger as an engagement ring and the couple just cannot believe their luck. They have been talking about engagement rings for a while now but this opportunity presented itself and they jumped at it. Rusty is 49 and his girlfriend, now fiancĂ©e, Janie is 50 and it was a lucky day foe them when they saw that ad on Craigslist.
When Rusty showed Janie the photos of the ring, she was so thrilled. They had read about the offer in the local newspaper and gone to the site to do the deal. The moment she said she liked the ring, Rusty went through with the deal and proposed as soon as the ring arrived. Rusty is a season ticket holder and so he had got the tickets to this popular game at the beginning of the year and he says that he was more than willing to trade it for the ring. A truly romantic man â not everyone would do what he did. There were some hiccups â when Rusty replied to the ad, there were problems and the owner had to repost the ad and he replied again. They then agreed to meet at a jewellery store so Rusty could make sure the ring wasnât a fake. The proposal was at home and quite low key because Janie already knew about the ring but they are both so happy and thrilled.

The oval diamond engagement ring is set in gold with three rows of diamonds. The central oval diamond is set in four pronged claws and the ring is a stunner. The two were caught recently in Los Angeles, looking ecstatic and smiling as they were off to see friends. It looks like itâs catching â another The Hills star got engaged last month and now itâs Whitneyâs turn.

This happened on their vacation to Australia and of course, Whitney put a picture up on Instagram as soon as she stopped crying with joy. Tim says that on the day he planned the proposal, it had rained a lot and it was grey skies all day so he improvised and decided not to go out. However, the next day which was the day they were to leave, the skies were blue and they took a trip to the beautiful beach and they took in a glorious sunset. So when will the wedding be, is the question. We havenât heard about them setting a date yet.

Kate lost her rings on her way to work and she never thought she would see them again. The rings had a value of ÂŁ6000 so she thought that whoever found them would never part with them and the very thought was so upsetting. However, her husband is in the communications business and it was to Chris she turned for help the moment she realised they were missing.
The lost items included a wedding ring, an engagement ring, two eternity rings and a cluster ring. Chris had dropped Kate off to work and while she was on her way out of the car, the bag with the rings must have fallen out. Kate suffers from eczema so she does not wear her rings when she goes to bed but puts them all back on in the morning. As she was running a bit late, she thought she would go to office and put them on. Even though the rings were valuable, it was the whole sentimental value attached to them that devastated Kate when she thought she had lost all of them.
Then Chris had a brainwave. He took it to the social media â specifically, Facebook and appealed to the person who had found it to please return it and that there would be a reward. The post was reposted a number of times and finally, the person who found the rings saw it and called to come give them back. He was so happy to have found them and the fact that he could return t to the rightful owner made him very happy. He never accepted the reward and Kate cannot help wondering at the power of the social media and how there are so many good people left in this world.
