The tide has changed for pearls. In recent years, the gem—once considered stuffy, even passé—has undergone a rebirth. Today, designers from around the world—including Chanel, Mizuki, Yvel, Nikos Koulis, and Viren Bhagat—are fashioning the luminous gems into unforgettable pieces, the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Many of these new creations are subtle enough to be worn every day, but even more are bold enough to steal the spotlight.
Laurence Graff—founder and chairman of world-renowned multinational jewelry brand based in London, Graff Diamonds and known as “King of Diamonds”—has purchased the 476-carat Meya Prosperity Diamond for $16.5 million. The purchase comes on the heels of Graff’s sale of the massive 709-carat Peace Diamond to the government of Sierra Leone for $6.5 million.
Long before moving to New York and launching her own eponymous jewelry collection, Swati Dhanak had a close relationship with gold. As a child, she spent countless hours observing family members craft jewelry at her grandfather’s gold workshop in Dubai, which he opened after moving to the United Arab Emirates from India in the 1950s.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
