Red Carpet Rules

The 92nd Academy Awards airs on February 9, and it’s a sacred day for jewelry! Never mind who wins—it’s the bling we’ll be watching for. If AGS was an acronym for “Academy Gem Stylists,” the nominees would be wearing these show-stopping Red Carpet earrings and accessories from a few of our American Gem Society (AGS) members.

Cynthia would rule the red carpet in this magnificent 49.79-carat diamond necklace by TAKAT.

Renée would complement her baby blues perfectly with Jack Abraham’s Ceylon sapphire and diamond demi-parure. The set features Red Carpet ready earrings and a necklace.

Saoirse Ronan
Actress in a Leading Role

Saoirse can raise the Oscar statuette while showing off this fabulous pearl ring by Baggins Pearls.

To end, we have a real-life Red Carpet moment at the SAG Awards that we want to share. Yvonne Strahovski from the Handmaid’s Tale wore these jaw-dropping pieces from Harry Kotlar.

Yvonne brightened up the Red Carpet with a pair of 12-carat emerald cut diamond earrings and the Kotlar Cushion Riviera Drop Necklace, featuring a 151.02-carat diamond drop.

Tips from Jewelers Mutual: The One Thing Your Homeowners Insurance Won’t Cover

Did you know that typical homeowners or renters policies often do not provide effective coverage for your jewelry? They’ll protect what most policies cover, which is theft or fire, but the coverage limit is likely not enough to fully cover the cost to repair or replace one piece of fine jewelry if you need to. What about other occurrences that may happen while you’re at home, like dropping a diamond earring down the drain or chipping a gemstone on a countertop? Do you have the appropriate jewelry insurance?

Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group discusses the limits of a homeowners insurance policy, how best to protect your jewelry, and how to get jewelry insurance in their blog, The One Thing Your Homeowners Insurance Won’t Cover.
