Who says brides get to have all the fun dressing up on their wedding day?

Gleaming shirt studs. He kept things on top looking fresh and stylish in $8,900 platinum tuxedo shirt studs surrounded by diamonds.
A tie accent to beat all tie accents. At $5,400, Kevin's platinum tie accent had better come with a whole slew of round diamonds.
The jewelery expert weighs in
"Since Kevin's accessories are set in platinum, they will last forever and become family heirlooms," says jewelry expert Michael O'Connor. "Kevin can give them to his brothers for their weddings, or pass the jewelry along to his future children as keepsakes," adds O'Connor.
Designer Eric Alulis from CliQ Jewelry spent months perfecting Kevin's request. "We recommended Kevin wear platinum because no other metal is capable of showing off the 4 carats of diamonds and fine hand setting work in our pieces," says Alulis.
This isn't the first time Kevin has requested platinum jewelry. He purchased a platinum 3-carat diamond engagement ring from Jacob & Co. for his bride Danielle Deleasa.
Men are fans of platinum jewelry because of its heft and durability. Other leading Hollywood men including Tom Cruise, Lamar Odom, Marc Anthony, Pete Wentz, Donald Trump, and Jeff Gordon wore platinum on their wedding day.
