Nicki Minaj Sparkles in Charles Albert Jewelry at the American Music Awards

Award-winning singer/songwriter, Nicki Minaj, arrived at the 40th annual American Music Awards (at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA) wearing an ultra glamourous ring and necklace duo by famed jeweler Charles Albert. Nicki paired the chunky statement pieces with an elegant chartreuse gown, that not only showed off her well-known curvaceous figure, but also her fearless fashion choices. Later in the evening, the songstress accepted the "Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album" award while capturing the attention of the audience with her bold ensemble and over-the-top personality.

The fashion-forward superstar dons:

Charles Albert Alchemia Titanium Treated Quartz Ring ($120)

Charles Albert Alchemia Necklace ($750)


From early on in his Pennsylvania childhood, Charles Albert was an avid stone collector. He was fascinated by the minerals and fossils he would encounter while searching the lot behind his grandmother’s backyard. Though he didn’t know it at the time, those stones would define his future. As a teenager, Charles Albert was enlisted in the Army and continued his service to our country throughout the next 14 years of his life. While still in the Reserves, Charles began exploring his options in starting his own business. Shortly after graduating from The University of Scranton with a B.S. in Management and a minor in Philosophy and History, he started his company with $60 and a dream. He began selling costume jewelry and then gradually made the transition into manufacturing fine sterling silver. Within a few years of starting off on his new venture, he met his wife Beth, who would later join him in the company. Together, they would develop the company into the fashion-forward brand that it has become. Today, Charles Albert still collects rocks, like he did as a child. His collection has simply become a little bit larger. As a self-taught designer, he lets the stones take center stage with minimal silver detailing. Charles Albert has earned a reputation for designing exquisite quality art, ready to wear. Hard work, determination and a passion for his work has allowed Charles to realize his dream of creating beautiful jewelry.
