The Emmy Awards are celebrating their diamond (60th) anniversary this year, and they commissioned a $10 million diamond chandelier to mark the occasion. These Emmy folks don’t mess around.
Boston-based jeweler, Hearts On Fire, designed the one-of-a-kind, three-tiered chandelier that will appear as the centerpiece of the backstage Greenroom where celebs make final preparations (drink heavily) before they appear on stage.
The officially named “Hearts On Fire Diamond Chandelier” is made with over 3,300 perfectly cut diamonds totaling over 1,000 carats and consists of a series of diamond strands that are illuminated by fiber optics. The hand-made beauty was created by a team led by Katherine Rosenberg Pineau, Hearts On Fire’s jewelry designer, and is guarded under 24-hour security.
“The Hearts On Fire diamond chandelier is the most extravagant, brilliant, glamorous diamond chandelier ever made. You can’t even imagine when it is illuminated how spectacular it is,” said Ms. Rosenberg Pineau. Oh we can imagine. It’s all we can do, thanks for reminding us.
Hearts On Fire will be providing white glove service to celebrities who want to touch and feel the chandelier in all its glory, and the piece will be for sale after the show.
The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards airs tomorrow – Sunday, September 21 at 8 PM, and you can bet we’ll be tracking all the red carpet shenanigans for you right here. Stay tuned.
