LONDON, Jul 27, 2012/ — For Olympic athletes, all the glitters are truly gold; but for the glitterati, the bling is as much a fashion statement and a symbol of elegance.

Fashion “it” girls Olivia Palermo, Katy Petty, Hillary Swank and Cheryl Cole have their love for beautiful jewelry in common.

Olivia Palermo, who is the current face of Madrid-based Carrera y Carrera fine jewelry, is also the muse of the jeweler’s “Musica” collection which was launched in Moscow last month. A Danza maxi ring in yellow gold with diamonds, a Danza necklace also in yellow gold with diamonds and smokey quarts as the stones plus the “circulos de fuego” bracelet in yellow gold with brown diamonds complete the elegant collection.

Another fan of Carrera y Carrera is musician Katy Perry who stunned the audience at the 2012 MusiCares benefit gala in Los Angeles wearing the Carrera y Carrera the maxi ring in white gold with diamonds and rock crystal from Gardenias, one of the company’s most romantic collections.

Not to be outdone are Hillary Swank and Heidi Klum who chose de GRISOGONO jewellery for their public appearances in Paris and Cannes, respectively.

Two-time Academy Award winner Hillary Swank wore rose gold earrings set with white diamonds from their de GRISOGONO “Matassa” collection with a “Pigna” ring set with brown diamonds when she attended the Salvatore Ferragamo exhibit at the Louvre Museum on June 12, 2012.

Meanwhile, supermodel turned Project Runway host Heidi Klum donned de GRISOGONO jewelry when she visited Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2012.

Ms. Klum wore de GRISOGONO earrings set with 2 sugar loaf shaped emerald earrings of 33.22 surrounded by amethysts, emeralds and purple sapphires and a one of a kind Butterfly bracelet set with a central spinel of 16.44 carats. The bracelet is also set with a multitude of emeralds, amethysts and white diamonds.

But, you don’t have to be a celebrity to be part of the glitterati set. Thanks to the Genuine Gemstone companies, jewellery such as the Gems TV Diamond Earrings are affordable.

As Donatella Versace once said, “do not let a rapper out-bling you.” Now, you can follow her advice to your heart’s desire.
