PGI sets up Emmy suite for celebrity stylists

Platinum Guild International USA hosted an exclusive jewelry suite for celebrity stylists to coincide with the 56th Annual Emmy Awards. Stylists were able to pick from a selection of Red-Carpet Platinum jewelry from 38 platinum jewelry designers and manufactures including Neil Lane, Stephen Russell, Marc Lazar, Tanagro, Sheila Goldfinger, Erica Courtney, Cathy Carmendy, Peter Norman & Co., Kwiat, and Elara.

Top choices by more than 20 stylists included platinum jewelry with large, bold multi-colored gemstones.

“We are very pleased that celebrity stylists took such a great interest in this event and that they have come to view PGI as an important resource for their foremost platinum jewelry needs,” said Michael O’Connor, senior vice president, Communications and Trade Relations.

A handmade platinum ring with a shank of micro-pave diamonds centered with a magnificent 8.36-ct. fancy blue pear-shaped diamond valued over $2 million by Mark Lazar was among the pieces available to the stylists. Other noteworthy pieces included a handmade platinum pendant with a 107-ct. black Russian diamond suspended from a platinum and diamond necklace, and a long platinum chain garnished with 312 multi-colored diamonds by Tanagro.

Fancy platinum drop earrings with a wide selection of gemstones in hues of pink, green, blue, yellow, and white were also popular choices among stylists.

Men’s choices included a pair of platinum and asscher-cut diamond cufflinks by Daniel K; platinum, onyx and diamond cufflinks by Neil Lane; platinum and crocodile skin watches by A. Lange & Söhne; and platinum, sapphire, and multi-color leather watches by Bunz.
