Jewelry is an important aspect of attending any awards ceremony and there is one place that celebrities always turn to when it comes to jewelry– the Platinum Guild Suite.

Revisiting the Luxe Hotel on Rodeo Drive, this luxe suite was chock full of bling , baubles and briolettes. From long drop earrings and cuff bracelets, to cufflinks and a 300 carat evening jacket, the world’s  top movie, television stars  and mover /shakers sparkled in millions of dollars worth of pure Platinum bling at the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor notes that “celebrities are choosing colorful gemstones including sapphires, moonstones, and rubies all set in Platinum to showcase their glamorous side.” O’Connor adds that “A-listers choose Platinum jewelry because it holds their gemstones more securely than any other metal and makes their jewelry sparkle from afar.” ( Don’t forget to check out his podcast that is coming up!)

Platinum is prized for its Pure, Rare and Eternal qualities:

PURE: Platinum’s high level of purity (generally 90%-95% pure) endows it with both a natural white luster, allowing the true radiance of a diamond or gemstone to shine; and hypoallergenic qualities that prove ideal for sensitive skin.
Only the purest platinum jewelry will bear a stamp reading "PLATINUM", "PLAT", "Pt
950", or "Pt 900", signifying the jewelry is 90% to 95% pure platinum.

RARE: Platinum is 30 times more rare than gold.

ETERNAL:  Platinum will hold a diamond or gemstone securely, now and for always.
