Rachel Zoe: A Push is Worth 10 CaratsMeredith Carroll
Rachel Zoe must have pushed really, really hard, or did it really, really well.
So well, in fact, that she was rewarded with a 10-carat diamond ring from her husband, Rodger Berman, to commemorate the birth of her son, Sklyer Morrison, in March.
The cushion-cut sparkler was designer by jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane.
“Rodger wanted to surprise Rachel with something romantic — and huge,” said Lane of the sparkler, which is adorned with smaller diamonds in a platinum setting, to People magazine. “I knew she’s wanted a cushion cut forever. It was their first baby and she’s been working so hard that Rodger wanted to do something very special. Rachel was thrilled and hasn’t taken it off since!”
A push present is a gift bestowed to some women following the birth of her child (also known as a “cut” present for women who undergo c-sections).
There’s been some mild debate recently over whether push presents are necessary or too materialistic. There’s no doubt that Zoe is struggling with the same notion as she gazes hypnotically and lovingly into the flawless addition to her hand.
