Celebrities are not known for their subtlety, generally speaking, and this year’s Oscars were no exception. Ruth Negga showed up with a ruby “crown” and earrings to complement her red Valentino gown. Charlize Theron wore diamond Chopard doorknockers on her ears, (they would have crushed a lesser woman.) Even Jennifer Aniston amped it up with 100ct emerald cut graduated diamond earrings worth $9.5 million.
Alas, most of us were not invited to the Oscars this year. We, unfortunately, had a previous engagement and could not attend. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t occasionally have “Oscars” in our own lives. Maybe it’s an important gallery opening or corporate event. Or maybe it’s a special wedding, your own – or someone you love very much. There are always excuses to glam things up a bit and we are here to help!
Bling Around the Collar
As we’ve been saying, colored stones are making a strong comeback and so are collar length diamond necklaces. This Antique Diamond and Sapphire Necklace combines the best of both worlds, in a charming vintage setting that is also the height of fashion. You can’t beat 11.63cts of round diamonds and 4.50cts of beautiful blue sapphires set in platinum for star power!
Or, for the diamond purist, how about this Asher Fancy Link Diamond Necklace from Gregg Ruth? This 18 karat white gold necklace features 6.60cts of sparkling diamonds for your wearing pleasure. Stunning, just stunning!
Bangles and Cuffs
Bangles and cuffs continued to rock the red carpet too. Priyanka Chopka wore elegant platinum and diamond cuffs on each wrist and the effect was sensational with her sleeveless, geometric dress. Halle Berry stacked diamond bangles with her own sleeveless, body-hugging gown. The nicest thing about this look is that it can be worn with so many different types of outfits. Stack diamond bangles with your jeans and a favorite shirt, wear them to the office or on an evening out. You never have to take them off! We have so many different diamond bangles to choose from. You can create your own unique combinations.
A Flex Forte Bezel Diamond Dust Bangle makes a great starter in 18K white gold with round diamonds.
Add another, like this Lady’s Alor Stainless Bracelet …
Or this Doves 18K White Gold Diamond Bangle. Or both!
If you want a more cuff-like look, try this George Press Three Row Overlapping Diamond Bangle in 18K white gold with 2.21cts of shimmering diamonds. Imagine how gorgeous it would look to put one on each wrist! Mind…Blown!
Of course, there were plenty of spectacular earrings at the Oscars too, long danglers and ear climbers and all of the trends we have been discussing here in our blog. We hope you’ve had the opportunity to wear some of these looks. Remember, you are the star of your own life. Whether it’s a rom-com, a drama or an adventure movie, live it to the fullest and celebrate each and every day!
