Red carpet enthusiasts had a lot of awards shows to watch in the past week+. At The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, hoop earrings took the spotlight, while pear-shape drops and earrings with leaf- and waterfall-like effects ruled at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards.
The usual suspects–Fred Leighton, Neil Lane, Chopard, among others–dressed most of the celebs, while a handful of other designers (Siera) managed to place a jewel or two on a star. To no one’s surprise, nearly everyone dressed in diamond and platinum jewels, but in a departure from the shows past, many stars wore black and/or brown diamonds in addition to the usual colorless stones.
And thank you to the Platinum Guild International and the Diamond Information Center for providing sources and some photos for most of the jewels worn by the stars at the Emmys.
