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.
