Fine Jewelry: Whether you'll admit it or not, you probably have some curiosity during Hollywood's award season about what glamorous jewels the stars will have adorning their smooth and pampered necklines, wrists and fingers. As much as we snicker over at the indulgence, we're enamored by the sparkling gemstones and jumbo-sized stones. Mark Katz, who has become the Jeweler to the Stars, made a career out of indulging the rich and famous with glitzy and one-of-a-kind jewels (it's a tough job, but someone has to do it).
With personalities like Sandra Bullock and Kate Winslet making him their first call for prestigious events like Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Emmy's, Katz has earned a reputation as one of the most preeminent jewelers and vintage jewelry collectors. Katz's contemporary collection captures the essence of vintage glamour and blends it with modern elegance. His diamond clover cluster earrings beautifully portray Katz's traditional, yet trend-setting style with classic pear shaped drops of D color diamonds weighing 3.99 and 3.55 carats.
In his vintage collection, one lucky leading lady could own the pearl and diamond chocker necklace containing 16.14 carats of diamonds, or the Asscher cut diamond ring with 3.02 carats set in platinum and a micro-pave diamond mounting.
