Insuring Celebrity Red-Carpet Jewelry | Fox Business

A red-carpet turn can make you a star — especially if you’re a jeweler.

There’s no bigger stage upon which to announce your arrival into the jewelry big leagues than that scarlet-clad sidewalk leading into the Oscar, Grammy, Emmy or MTV Video Music awards shows.

Landing a stunning bracelet on Reese Witherspoon, diamond pendants on Angelina Jolie or a six-figure gem suite on Sandra Bullock can transform a well-kept secret into a household name overnight. Just ask Jorge Adeler, an Argentina-born custom jeweler whose studio in Great Falls, Va., makes one-of-a-kind jewelry for the wives of movers and shakers in nearby Washington, D.C. Once Hollywood’s A-list caught a glimpse of Adeler’s artistry, he received so many requests to borrow his pieces that he was forced to open his own showroom in Beverly Hills, Calif., just to accommodate them.

“Hardly a week passes now without us being in one magazine or another: Redbook, InStyle, Martha Stewart, Brides magazine,” says 65-year-old Adeler. “It is a great compliment.”

It has also been a crash course in how these expensive pieces survive the perilous journey from jeweler’s bench to a starlet’s neckline and back.

Strange Random Jewellery Quote:

I don’t want to own anything until I know I’ve found the place where me and things belong together. I’m not quite sure where that is just yet. But I know what it’s like…. It’s like Tiffany’s…. Not that I give a hoot about jewelry. Diamonds, yes. But it’s tacky to wear diamonds before you’re forty… – Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1958, spoken by the character Holly Golightly
