Hello, and welcome to the inaugural post for The Brilliant Blog! I’m Kendra, your writer. I enjoy long walks on the beach, taking photos of my pets, and jewelry (and diamonds, obviously).
With a television awards show just around the corner (on September 18th, to be exact) this seemed like the perfect time to launch a blog about diamonds. The clichéd saying is true – we are in the Golden Age of television, with some of the world’s brightest stars now lending their considerable talents to the small screen.
The Primetime Emmy Awards is a wonderful celebration of the talent, creativity, and hard work of the television industry, but they’re also an event where our favorite stars get to show up looking gorgeous.
The red carpet – where all of the glamazons of the industry strut their stuff. If you’re anything like me, you love checking out the incredible designer gowns and replicating the latest contouring trend. However, there’s an often-unsung hero of the red carpet that we should recognize – the bling. Diamonds are what brings an outfit from middle of the road to the best dressed list.
Check out “Orange is the New Black” actress Diane Guerrero at last year’s awards, for example. She wore 10.32 carats of Leo Diamonds, priced at $68,500. These gorgeous earrings brought her classic black dress to a whole new level. Do you see that faraway sparkle?! I do.
I can’t wait to see the bling that will walk down the red carpet this year, and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for Leo Diamonds on my favorite stars.
Next week you will get an exclusive look into StyleLab’s Jewelry Suite, an event to which I have received a golden (and diamond-encrusted) ticket. The StyleLab Suite is an exclusive event in which celebs get the chance to try on some of the world’s most beautiful jewelry in an effort to decide which one-of-a-kind pieces to wear to this year’s awards. Is anyone else feeling a little jealous, or is it just me?
Michael O’Connor, a Celebrity Stylist and overall giant in the Jewelry and Style industry has hand-selected Leo Diamond jewelry, among other brands, to be featured in the suite. This year Leo is pulling out all of the stops with a total of five pieces up for grabs. Some of my favorite pieces include a 5.7 CTW pair of climber earrings worth over $67,000 and an 8.62 CTW pair of tower earrings worth over $80,000. Don’t worry, I’ll take pics.
Tune in next week to see these beautiful pieces, and more!
