Graff Diamonds Returns for Third Consecutive Year To Sponsor the SAG Awards® Green Room, Benefiting the SAG Foundation

FENDI CASA Luxury Living also Returning to Design and Furnish the Green Room


LOS ANGELES (Dec. 10, 2012) — Graff Diamonds, famous for the most fabulous jewels in the world, is returning for the third consecutive year to sponsor the Screen Actors Guild Awards® Green Room, and to honor the charitable work of actors and the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.

“Our sponsorship of the SAG Awards Green Room has proved to be a superb fit with Graff’s commitment to excellence — a commitment which is reflected both in the quality and craftsmanship of our diamonds and precious gems and in the philanthropic and humanitarian causes which we assist,” said Henri Barguirdjian, President and Chief Executive Officer of Graff Holdings Incorporated. “We are pleased to support the impressive work of the SAG Foundation and to once again be a part of the SAG Awards’ celebration of the year’s finest performances as the SAG Awards’ official jeweler.”

The SAG Awards Green Room offers an elegant, comfortable retreat in which SAG Awards presenters can await their moment on stage and privately review their awards ceremony scripts away from the activity of the SAG Awards showroom. Displays of Graff’s exquisite works of art in gemstones will again highlight this year’s Green Room décor.

FENDI CASA Luxury Living, the home design collection for the international luxury brand Fendi, will dress SAG Awards Green Room in support of the SAG Foundation, also for the third consecutive year.
