DIAMOND PRALINES: Jewelry brand Azature — of which Zoe Saldana, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna and Beyoncé are all fans — is giving its clientele a new way to indulge. Los Angeles-based designer Azature Pogosian, known for his black diamond jewelry, has launched a line of fine chocolate pralines — over three years in the works — out of cocoa beans from the Bolivian Amazon. “I developed [the pralines] as a sentiment of gratitude and appreciation for my dedicated clients,” said the designer. “What started as a thank you gift then turned into thousands and thousands of orders.” Crafted in Belgium, the hand-painted, diamond-shaped chocolates come in eight different varieties including Champagne, macchiato and chai. Available in sets of four, nine and sixteen and encased in handmade croc-embossed jewelry boxes, the collection ranges from $18-$144 at azaturechocolates.com.
