Stars shined in million dollar gemstone jewelry on the red carpet. Extraordinary brilliance of exotic and dramatic jewels stimulated our senses. From diamond stackable rings to dangling earrings and everything in between added the perfect glamor and radiance to the biggest Hollywood entertainment night.
If statement necklaces were considered prevailing, gold and diamond jewelry were the dominating elements. Vintage, retro, art-deco various styles were displayed by celebrities.
We fell in love with the crescent earrings and diamond headband of Lupita Nyong’o, and equally mesmerized by the aquamarine earrings and bracelet of Jessica Biel.
We have already given you the glimpse of state-of-the-art dresses. This time let’s take a closer look at this year’s Oscar Jewelry.
The traditional metal was one of the major elements of the red carpet jewelry. The major reasons for the gold rush were the work of LoveGold, the World Gold Council’s fashion jewelry initiative that was out in front during the Oscar Week and the dramatic drop of the precious metal prices last year. Simply put, gold is back on track. It’s not just showing more on the red carpet, but also is back in stores worldwide.
The night was full of fashion and fame. Most of the A-list stars wore fine diamond and gemstone statement necklaces. From yard-necklace to chokers, collars and extravagant pendants in different designs and settings, the necklaces stole hearts at the event.
If Angelina Jolie stunned in her 42-carat diamond drops, then Amy Adams stole the show with her flawless multi-stone earrings. Not to mention, Cate Blanchett was awe-inspiring in those opal dangles. Earrings in every style were a big hit. They were an essential accessory to glamorize the event. We loved how our favorite stars smiled and sparkled ear to ear.
We know stackable rings and bangles are a new rage but never imagined they could be so sophisticated and flawless. Sleek diamond eternity rings, motif pieces, cuffs, bracelets and bangles in mix styles of vintage, retro and modern were exceptional. Stackable rings of Emma Watson, and bracelets and cuffs of Olivia Wilde and Julie Roberts were the noteworthy accessories.
