Diamonds on the Soles of Her Feet

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, where have they been lately?

Where was precious when your tire blew on the 405? Donde estaba el diamante when you needed three reasons to love your new easily hateable haircut? And it’s not like your shiny little so-called friend was around for a recap after last week’s not-a-date.

It might be time to turn to some other gemstones for comfort — the gemstones treatments at Lulur in West Hollywood, to be exact. Taking cues from ancient Japanese warm rock massage and combining it with the purported healing properties of gemstones, the boutique spa offers facials and hand and foot reflexology.

Even those who are on auto-scoff when it comes to things holistic won’t be able to deny that a little pampering of this nature would do any body good. Stones like circulation-improving snowflake obsidian, anti-inflammatory aventurine, and lucky jade are fashioned into slim donuts and are rubbed on target areas to balance energy and promote relaxation. By the end, you’ll have a whole new group of best friends.

Eh, who are you kidding?

Lapis might be nice, but diamonds are still forever.
