Red Carpet Style You Can Afford

The Academy Awards spectacular, affectionately known as “the Oscars,” is not just the film industry’s biggest night. It’s also one of the biggest nights for jewelry, when stylists and stars pull out all the stops. Classic Hollywood glamour and exciting new trends cascade down the red carpet in a scintillating sequence of carefully orchestrated appearances where no detail is left to chance. Here we get to see the pinnacle of design, every accessory chosen with care. No expense is spared to adorn Hollywood’s Royals. So what would you wear if the nation was watching? Here are some of my favorite looks that will allow you to feel glamorous, without needing a movie star’s budget.

Red Carpet, White Light
You couldn’t watch the Awards without seeing that diamonds reigned supreme. The red carpet was awash in white light as some of the most dazzling stars donned important diamond pieces. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a celebrity to look like one. If you admired the river of diamonds Helen Hunt sported, consider our graduated eternity necklace, to embrace your own neck.

Elegant Drops
Jennifer Lawrence was a winner in more ways than one. Not only did this beautiful actress snag the award for best actress in a leading role, she has my vote for her choice of earrings: perfectly elegant, substantial, tasteful and sophisticated. Very much like our diamond dangles on eurowires.

Chandelier Earrings with Style
Nicole Kidman is famed for her beauty and talent, but also for taking chances with her jewelry and wearing pieces that spark spirited conversation and mark enduring trends. Amid so much diamond jewelry, her lively chandelier earrings were a warm and bright standout. Our satin finish chandeliers with diamond accents capture the look perfectly.

Bracelets, bracelets, bracelets
Last night, another big story in jewelry was all about the wrists. Gorgeous eye popping bracelets stood out as important accessories, with actresses such as Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Anniston, Charlize Theron, and Amy Adams all sporting glittering, layered looks on their wrists. Our very own diamond lattice cuff bracelet is graceful, feminine, and covered in diamonds, truly a winner you’ll love to flaunt.
