Red Carpet Style: Celebs Go Beyond "Gold" to Platinum for Amazing Jewelry
When it comes to celebrity red carpet action or your personal events, ever wonder why some jewelry sparkles more, catches the light more and looks more delicate while handling a monumental amount of gemstones? Think Platinum and you would be right!
Many of our favorite stars opted to wear platinum jewelry to the 67th Annual Golden
Style expert Michael O’Connor notes that
“Celebrities are choosing one area to highlight, whether that’s a large statement necklace in platinum, big earrings or stackable cuff bracelets.” O’Connor adds that “Colored gemstones are making a big appearance on the red carpet. We’re seeing more in the cooler palettes, such as blues and greens.” Since platinum is a naturallywhite
metal, it will maximize the brilliance of colored stones too.
Here’s a few of my favorite celebrities and what they wore:

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.

I like silver, I love different shades of gold, but nothing is quite like platinum!
