Platinum jewelry abundant at 61st Primetime Emmys

While the awards might be gold, our favorite television stars opted for platinum jewelry on the red carpet at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. Style expert Michael O’Connor notes that “classic Hollywood glamour is the hottest trend on the red carpet this year.” O’Connor adds that “celebrities are choosing to make a statement with their jewelry by highlighting either their neck, wrists or ears with bold pieces.” Platinum is favored on the red carpet because it’s a naturally white metal so it maximizes the brilliance of rare gemstones. Celebrities including AnnaLynne McCord (90210), Seth Green (Family Guy), Rex Lee (Entourage), Mehcad Brooks (True Blood), Kate Flannery (The Office), Phyllis Smith (The Office), Nick Verreos (Project Runway), Kate Linder (The Young & The Restless), Shar Jackson (Moesha), Leslie David Baker (The Office), Kay Panabaker (Fame), Kristy Flores (Fame), and Kristen Quintrall (Transformers 2) attended Platinum Guild International USA’s Emmy Awards Red Carpet Jewelry Preview at a luxurious hotel suite in Beverly Hills where they personally selected gorgeous baubles from the world’s top designers to wear on the red carpet. From platinum and 100-carat diamond necklaces to vintage men’s cufflinks and rare men’s watches, guests had the opportunity to preview the most exquisite, highest quality jewelry available only to Hollywood’s biggest stars. Spotlighted jewelry included the U.S. debut of the “Aqua Collection”, one-of-a-kind masterpiece necklaces inspired by water that were created by world famous jewelry designers China, Italy, Japan, and India. Celebrities also autographed “platinum” Hunter Wellies for the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation’s award show auction benefitting children’s charities. Additionally, they received a “Red Carpet Prep” gift bag with products from Aldo, Moroccanoil, Valerie Beverly Hills, Auric Blends, Beautyfix, Sexy Hair, Zirh Platinum, BagTags USA, and The Racktrap.
