Couture jeweler extraordinaire Kwiat, the 101-year old
luxury jewelry and diamond company, is always making news. Earlier this month came the debut of their flagship Madison Ave. store and now their Emmy creations.
Cate Adair, the Emmy-nominated and award-winning costume designer for
Desperate Housewives, collaborated with Kwiat to create the ultimate accessory,
the "Platinum Clutch." The one-of-a-kind purse, valued at more than
$500,000, debuted at the Platinum Guild International (PGI-USA)
Annual Emmy Awards Red Carpet Jewelry Preview. The bag features genuine pure Platinum design
elements set with 60 carats of Kwiat diamonds, in honor of the 60th
Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Next, January Jones and the Kwiat team took the prize for most creative use
of diamond jewelry. Mark Townsend and Kwiat created a custom diamond
hairpiece for the Mad Men star by wrapping Kwiat diamonds by the yard
with large diamond pieces.
