What diamond designs will rule the red carpet on Sunday? Will there be a rainbow of color or a sea of black and white? See what the trendsetters are saying about jewelry fashion’s biggest night.
Jewelry fashion during Awards Season culminates in one glorious evening – the
Oscars – and the fashion set is already predicting the trends we’re likely to
see this Sunday.
“I think this year at the Oscars, as we normally see, it’s going to be lots
of classic, old Hollywood glamour,” predicts Francesca Ferrante from the
Diamond Information Centre. “Whether its big statement earrings or a
couple of bracelets layered together, the diamonds are going to be substantial
but still that simplistic beauty that we always see. Each year at the Oscars
there is normally four hundred million dollars worth of diamond jewellery.
That’s a lot of carats per star.”
Last year color ruled in the guise of stunning emerald jewelry on Angelina
Jolie and statement pieces on stars like Amy Adams. This year, color is back
again but with a slightly different spin.
“One of the biggest trends we are going to see on the red carpet is color,”
Lindsay Meyer from Building Communications told the Associated Press.
“We will see a lot of blues a lot of greens. There are some great options
available from KWIAT. They feature some amazing vintage designs with
sapphire and ruby.”
Another trend to watch is jewelry without the precious gems that add both
weight and worry. Some celebs want a big look but don’t want to be responsible
for millions of dollars in diamonds, so jewelers like Harry Winston and Swarovski
are offering stunning costume looks in their preview shows, according to the
Los Angeles Times.
“Because the pieces aren’t made from precious stones, they can really pile on
the sparkly stuff to make some pretty creative pieces,” blogger Melissa
While we may have Avatars instead of Angelina this year, it’s clear we’ll
still have plenty of jewelry glamor to gawk at while we sit sofa-side – so check
