The fashions at this fall’s awards season were not lacking for drama, jewelry included. That white-hot flash you saw as actresses swept past fans and cameras on the red carpet? You guessed it: platinum jewelry. 

In addition to the way its white color sets off diamonds and colored gemstones, designers like platinum for its strength, and ability to hold gems in place: Who wants to lose a diamond or a ruby on the red carpet?



Among those wearing platinum at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards was Emmy winner Gwyneth Paltrow, who took home an award for her guest stint on Glee. Her accessories might have gone unnoticed, given the dramatic, belly-baring bead dress by Emilio Pucci that she wore, but a closer look reveals a treasure trove of glamorous jewelry:  platinum earrings with black and white diamonds totaling 7 carats; two platinum and diamond bracelets, 100 carats total; and a platinum ring with diamonds and black onyx, all by Neil Lane.

Another star who didn’t hold back the drama at the Emmy event was Emily Blunt, who wore a plunging neckline gown by Elie Saab dress sans necklace, choosing to accessorize elsewhere. The actress, who is married to Office star John Krasinski, wore blackened platinum and diamond stud earrings (10 carats); blackened platinum and diamond bangle (40 carats); and a blackened platinum ring with diamonds and sapphire (20 carats); all by celebrity favorite Lorraine Schwartz..

A winner for her role on Modern Family, Julie Bowen wore a shimmering, plunging patterned Oscar de la Renta gown with Neil Lane jewels, including platinum earrings with black and white diamonds, platinum bracelet with diamonds and onyx, and several platinum rings with black and white diamonds.



Platinum also was big at the 28th Annual MTV Music Awards, in August, where Beyonce announced some big news: her pregnancy. The pop queen wore—once again—jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, including platinum and diamond tassel earrings,  a platinum ring with emeralds and diamonds, her own platinum and diamond wedding ring, plus a platinum cuff with jade and diamonds from her husband, Jay-Z.

Meanwhile, newlywed Kim Kardashian, fresh from her honeymoon, wore platinum jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz to the MTV bash as well, choosing blackened platinum earrings with white and black diamonds and sapphire, a platinum ring with brown diamonds, a platinum and diamond cuff and her own platinum and diamond wedding ring, all accenting a slinky metallic gown by KaufmanFranco with a plunging neckline.

Subtler, but no less glam was British singing sensation Adele, who was rolling in the deep with an all-white jewelry look for her black ensemble, choosing platinum jewelry by Harry Winston, including platinum and diamond cluster earrings for her performance at the awards.
