If you feel the same way we do about colored gemstones, you can always find a good excuse to spice up your outfit with your favorite piece of jewelry. With so many different gem types and infinite color options to choose from, you don’t have to spend a fortune to acquire that unique, beautiful adornment that you will enjoy for years to come and will last a lifetime (or longer). For the talented actors and actresses fortunate enough to attend the Golden Globes and Academy Awards there may not be a better night to bring attention to some of the finest examples the world of colored gemstones has to offer.
Every year, millions of viewers worldwide tune in to the Golden Globe awards as well as the Oscars not just to see who the winners will be but also, what (and who) they have decided to wear for this prestigious event. We at Shaftel Diamond Co. were honored to have had a few of our custom jewelry designs chosen by award nominees and attendees to wear during the show. We were thrilled to be able to watch some of our favorite jewelry designs shimmer and sparkle on the red carpet, adding that perfect final touch to the outfits.
