Los Angeles, CA – From hair pins and large hoop earrings to bangles and candy-colored toe rings, the world’s hottest television stars sparkled in millions of dollars worth of pure Diamond and Platinum bling at the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor notes that “similar to top fashion magazine and runway trends this fall, celebrities are choosing either very colorful and whimsical pieces of jewelry or classic white diamonds all set in Platinum on the red carpet to showcase their glamorous side.” O’Connor adds that “A-listers choose Platinum jewelry because it holds their gemstones more securely than any other metal and makes their diamonds sparkle from afar.” - The Platinum Guild
