OKLAHOMA CITY – November 14, 2019 - From the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, last night to Oklahoma City tonight, the Heart of Oklahoma Diamond in a Harry Kotlar masterpiece arrives for an exclusive reveal event at BC Clark Jewelers. Carrie Underwood, Oklahoma native and country music superstar, debuted the Harry Kotlar ring while hosting last night’s award show.
Underwood’s orange fringed Nicole + Felicia Couture dress complemented the handcrafted Harry Kotlar ring featuring an 18.92 carat superior quality Internally Flawless, Fancy Intense Yellow diamond. The Heart of Oklahoma Diamond honors the founding year of BC Clark, a fourth generation business which began in Indian Territory in 1892. The intense yellow color symbolizes the powerful and colorful sunsets that stretch for miles over the Oklahoma plains. The Harry Kotlar masterpiece features a geometric design reminiscent of steam locomotive’s pilot grills with the use of tapered baguette diamonds. This simple, yet elegant piece is timeless and represents a piece of BC Clark’s history as Oklahoma’s oldest business under the same family ownership.
Carrie Underwood is no stranger to Oklahoma. The Checotah, Oklahoma, native is a seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner who got her start on America Idol in 2005 where she won and launched her career in country music. She is now well-known all around the world and hosted the Country Music Awards for the 12th time last night in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Carrie Underwood has a deep connection with her home state and we are delighted to provide the opportunity for her to have a piece of her heritage on stage,” says Czarah Cabrera, brand director for Harry Kotlar. “She was the perfect star to wear the ring and she pulled off the look nicely at the awards, plus the timing was perfect with our big reveal event tonight.”
Underwood has worn Harry Kotlar on many occasions before, including the 2016 Country Music Awards and 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards. Other celebrities seen wearing Harry Kotlar include Celine Dion, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and many more.
“BC Clark is honored to have partnered with Harry Kotlar to create this masterpiece,” said Coleman Clark, President of BC Clark Jewelers. We are excited to introduce the Heart of Oklahoma Diamond ring to our loyal customers in Oklahoma and around the country. Carrie Underwood is the perfect Oklahoma icon to debut the ring, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
