SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS and Neptunes producer Pharrell Williams are expected to outshine fellow stars at tonight's (28AUG03) MTV MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS - with their dazzling set of diamonds.

Rap mogul Combs will be sporting what is set to be the stone of the night - a 60-carat, $3 million (GBP1.9 million) diamond on loan from LORRAINE E SCHWARTZ, the Manhattan, New York, jewellery designer who creates custom pieces for the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Justin Timberlake, Barbra Streisand and Britney Spears.

Schwartz is also reportedly at work putting together two dozen yellow diamonds to create a gem-encrusted bauble for Williams - totalling at around 100 carats.

The anticipated show, now in its 20th year, will take place at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
