We couldn’t have been more thrilled when we spotted Retta Sirleaf on the Emmy red carpet last night. We love her for cracking us up in her role as Donna Meagle on NBC’s comedy series, Parks and Recreation, but last night we loved her even more for bringing that sunny personality to the red carpet… wearing Gemvara gems, no less!
At last night’s 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, Retta quite literally “rocked” our rock crystal drop earrings, a piece from our new Naked Gems collection set to debut on our site in November. These luxe, dangling, earrings were a stunning compliment to Retta’s gorgeous, bright yellow gown.
We are honored that Retta chose our jewelry to wear to the award show. Retta tried on our pieces a few days before the show at Michael O’Connor’s Emmy Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Michael, an acclaimed jewelry stylist, chose a few of our pieces to be featured in his highly curated collection of jewelry for Emmy Nominees. Since all our jewelry is customizable, Retta also tried on our earrings in Citrine, but ultimately settled on the sparkling rock crystal. We think she made the right choice!
