A gem-laden Easter egg hunt, a Farimined gold trophy by Chopard and jewelry at the MTV Movie Awards are among the jewelry-related events that happened around the globe this week.

Egg hunters had the chance to find gemstones last Sunday when Great Falls, Va.-based Adeler Jewelers, along with the Great Falls Optimist Club, hosted the 30th annual Children’s Spring Festival and Easter Egg Hunt. More than $10,000 worth of gems were hidden in the 8,000 candy-filled eggs scattered around Great Falls Village Centre.

Also this week, Chopard announced that the Palme d’Or, the Chopard-designed trophy presented at the Cannes Film Festival, will be made entirely in Fairmined certified gold. An event in Paris marked the occasion.

On Sunday night were the annual MTV Movie Awards and this year a few jewelry brands got their pieces on presenting actresses.
