Los Angeles - Vintage jewels popular at the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

For nominees and presenters attending the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, classic diamond looks, including simple studs, drop earrings and stacked diamond bangles, were the big winners of the night.

Attendees gravitated towards the understated vintage and antique jewelry pieces. That's not to say however that the show lacked in glamour. On the contrary, television's biggest stars radiated a taste of Old Hollywood elegance.

Vintage diamond pieces put in a major showing at the event, with Kyra Sedgwick and Glenn Close sporting 1920s and '30s pieces, and old mine- and cushion-cut diamonds seemed to sparkle on everyone from Holly Hunter to Mary-Louise Parker.

The stars of both the silver and the smaller screen know that nothing pronounces refined taste and subdued elegance quite like a piece of antique jewelry. Dress like a movie star and gain an aura of individuality and confidence.

From the many pieces in our ever changing collection, we have picked the one pictured above to draw to your attention.


HOF diamond chandelier to light up Emmy night

North Hollywood, Calif.—A Hearts On Fire (HOF)-designed chandelier crafted of more than 3,300 perfectly cut diamonds and worth an estimated $10 million will illuminate the green room at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards.

Handmade in Boston by a team led by HOF jewelry designer Katherine Rosenberg Pineau, the "Hearts On Fire Diamond Chandelier" totals more than 1,000 carats.

The three-tiered structure is plated with platinum and has a sleek design consisting of a series of diamond strands illuminated by fiber optics.

"The Hearts On Fire diamond chandelier is the most extravagant, brilliant, glamorous diamond chandelier ever made," Pineau said. "You can't even imagine when it is illuminated how spectacular it is."

The lighting fixture will hang in the center of the 625-square-foot green room, located offstage at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre and accessible only by Emmy nominees and presenters.

Architectural Digest, which has designed the green room for the last seven years, invited HOF to be a part of the space to mark the award shows 60th anniversary, also known as the diamond anniversary.

Following the show, the chandelier will be for sale.

The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards airs on Sept. 21 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC, from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

In a recent article written by David Brough for Reuters, Mr Brough is lending a helping hand to the antique jewelry trade. Although all help is welcome, we at Adin think that Mr Brough is giving the wrong reasons for buying antique jewelry.

He quotes Carol Woolton, Jewellery Editor of British Vogue, a top fashion and lifestyle magazine "There are a lot of people now with jewels in their safes for a rainy day." And, he further declares: "Rare vintage jewels are increasingly popular investments to protect against rising inflation and economic uncertainty, and Art Deco designs are commanding the most attention from collectors."

It is our opinion however, that one should not buy antique jewelry as an investment but just for the reason that one likes a particular piece of antique jewelry and wants and can spend the required amount of money for it. That, and only that, should be the most important reason to buy jewelry, antique or new.

Wear a piece of vintage jewelry, and you're guaranteed to receive compliments and even more, vintage jewelry gives the wearer an aura of individuality and confidence. The timeless, evocative look of antique and vintage jewelry makes a distinctive addition to every woman's jewelry wardrobe.

We at Adin try to be more than just dealers in antique and vintage jewelry. We try to share our love, passion and knowledge on antique jewelry with many around. It is from this perspective that we will send you in the coming months short impressions of different significant styles from the past centuries. This time we will dive into an era that has not been too long ago: Art Deco

The Art Deco style is a very famous and popular art movement that had a lot influence in the world of jewelry. Art Deco was introduced in the 1920s as protest against the Art Nouveau style. Art Deco ended in the 1930s. The style emphasized a very abstract design with geometric patterns and as most favorite colors: black (onyx), blue (sapphire), green (emerald), white (diamond) and red (coral).
The baguette and emerald-cuts, which had been developed in the nineteenth century, where very popular in the 1920s because they blended so much with the geometrical lines of the Art Deco style. Interested in reading more about Art Deco?
