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 ones surprise, nearly everyone dressed in diamond and platinum jewels, but in a departure from shows past, many stars wore black and/or brown diamonds in addition to the usual colorless stones.
