width=360As one of the world's most beloved celebrity personalities, Oprah Winfrey is arguably the most influential woman in modern pop culture and possibly the world.  With today's news that the 25th season of her TV talk-show will be her last, this media maven is certainly ending her run on a high note.  The show has become the highest-rated talk show format program in history.  However, with two magazines, a wildly popular book club, Oprah.com, an XM Satellite Radio show and her upcoming OWN (Oprah Winfrey Newtork) TV channel, it's clear that her position as the queen of media is as strong as ever.

On the cover of the December 2009 issue of Oprah's O magazine, she is pictured posing with her good friend and fellow talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres.  In the picture, Oprah wears a bold Hera diamond ring from designer jewelry house H.Stern.  The ring is crafted in 18k noble gold and displays over four carats of pave set champagne diamonds in an elegant leaf design.  This is a perfect style for fall and winter with an autumn color palette and dazzling sparkle.

The Hera jewelry collection has been one of H.Stern's most popular of late with a slew of high-profile celebrities choosing to don these designs at red carpet events.  It's fitting that such a monumental personality like Oprah would choose to wear jewelry from H.Stern as the brand is also a testament to enduring fashion.  With a history that stretches back over half a century and countless awards, H.Stern is a paragon of excellence in the designer jewelry world with a style that is totally unique to the brand.
