2012 ACM Awards – Jewelry on Display

2012 ACM Awards –  Jewelry on Display

On Sunday night, country music’s brightest stars gathered in Las Vegas for the country music equivalent to the Grammys : the 47 th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. And when it comes to jewelry and fashion, three of country music’s heavy hitters stole the Red Carpet. Blonde bombshells Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood chose warm neutral tones and gorgeous diamond jewelry for their ACM Awards Red Carpet looks . This 5.69 carat radiant cut diamond would be the perfect complement to Taylor Swift's white dress at the ACM Awards. Taylor Swift, who won the ACM award for Entertainer of the Year, wore a stunning, white J Mendel gown with subtle metallic piping and daring side cutouts when she hit the ACM Red Carpet . And her jewelry mimicked the gold flashes in her gown perfectly: The singer’s Lorraine Schwartz diamond drop earrings added just the right amount of shine, and her chunky gold and diamond bracelets softened the tone of her sophisticated look. Carrie Underwood always looks feminine and sophisticated on the Red Carpet, and this year’s ACM Awards was no exception. The two-award nominated singer wore a custom strapless Abed Mahfouz gown with chic beaded embellishments and sheer detailing. To complement the buttery yellow hue of her couture gown, Carrie chose classic Jonathan Arndt jewelry. Her diamond and platinum cluster earrings were subtle against her gown’s heavy beading, and her oversized platinum flower ring was a funky statement piece fitting for the Red Carpet. This cushion cut diamond with a striking blue fluorescence is similar to the diamonds in Carrie Underwood's 2012 ACM Awards Red Carpet earrings. Miranda Lambert left the 47 th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards with the award for best female vocalist and mixed reviews for her gold glam Randi Rahm gown. The floor-length heavily embellished dress had enough shine to fill the entire Red Carpet, so the singer made the right choice by wearing soft gold and diamond chandelier earrings that didn’t compete with her dress’ megawatt shine. To complete her Fred Leighton jewelry look, the singer (and wife of Blake Shelton, the night’s Best Male Vocalist winner) chose a striking gold and diamond bracelet featuring two gold bands and a diamond-studded bird motif. A classic, pear shaped diamond from the Diamond & Estate Trust collection. White and gold were by far the most popular shades of the evening at the 2012 ACM Awards, and nothing accents these soft colors like brilliant diamonds . Diamond & Estate Trust’s collection includes exquisite loose diamonds in a variety of cuts and carats; once you select the perfect diamond to suit your style, our experts will create you a custom piece as striking as the statement jewelry on the 2012 ACM Red Carpet. Need help picking the perfect diamond ? Why not take a look at these three recent additions to our collection : a classic 6.25 carat pear shaped diamond that would make a romantic ring; a 4.01 carat cushion cut diamond with a striking blue fluorescence; or a 5.69 carat radiant cut diamond that would amplify any simple setting. Diamond & Estate Trust is Southern California’s premier buyer and seller of loose gems , vintage jewelry and signed designer pieces. Have a piece of jewelry worthy of the Red Carpet? Let our experts give you a fair appraisal on your vintage and luxury jewelry. More: 2012 ACM Awards – Jewelry on Display

Crook Robs Blind Woman in Little Tokyo, Caught on Video.wmv

Crook Robs Blind Woman in Little Tokyo, Caught on Video.wmv

Los Angeles. Los Angeles detectives have released video of a shocking, daylight robbery in Little Tokyo, in which a man chokes an elderly blind woman to steal her gold chain and jade pendant. “This is shocking to watch, especially when you consider this woman is legally blind,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division. “When you watch the video you can actually read the crook’s mind as he sizes up his victim and waits for witnesses to walk by.” The robbery occurred on 1st Street between Los Angeles Street and San Pedro Street on July 24. The retired resident of Little Tokyo was pushing her walker down the sidewalk around noon, when a short Hispanic man sneaks up behind the 68 year old. The crook grabs her around the throat and chokes her as she struggles to understand what is happening to her. “She fights back, but the suspect gets her gold chain and jade pendant, worth about $100,” Lt. Vernon explained. “If this video doesn’t make you angry, little will.” A man in a nearby business also comes to the victim’s rescue and the suspect runs away. Detectives are combing through other video to see if the suspect’s image is captured later. “Street robberies are uncommon in the Little Tokyo area, so this one really stands out,” Lt. Vernon said. “And this suspect really needs to go to jail.” The mugger was wearing a white shirt, a small back pack, and a baseball cap turned backwards. Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Central …
