The Jewelry Insider

March 3, 2011

The celebrity emerald jewelry trend that started with Angelina Jolie’s Oscar jewels in 2009, expanded to Julianne Moore’s Bulgari beauties in 2010 and peaked at this Sunday’s Academy Awards with Reese Witherspoon and Annette Bening (deep inhale)…well, it continues to bring in fashion’s biggest stars.

Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively was every bit the sartorial siren when she attended a Chanel-hosted dinner in her honor last night at New York’s La Grenouille in Chanel Haute Couture (’09), ballet-inpsired Louboutin pumps and STUNNING emerald earrings by (who else?) Lorraine Schwartz!

While I should find something snarky to say about the emerald earring trend wearing out its welcome – the truth is? I love it. And with Lorraine Schwartz behind so many of the dazzling looks – what’s not to love?

The price points for one. So here are a few great Sample Sale emerald RING selects I found on JewelClub for all you Dorothy wannabes who want to take a trip to Emerald City without pawning your ruby slippers. (This Dorothy wants that cocktail ring with the black and white diamonds. Just sayin’).


Cushion-cut Created Emerald Ring. Orig Price: $279. JewelClub Price: $95.97
Created Emerald Ring with Created Sapphires. Orig Price: $359 JewelClub Price: $122.99

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????? Parker reporting about REAL emeralds and then is pushing created GAR–Bauge? No wonder JQP has no clue about gems

    Now, George. Don’t hyperventilate. Created gemstones are a great way for we mere mortals to get fine jewelry at price points that don’t require a second mortgage. We can ASPIRE to wear Angelina emeralds but who the heck has the bank account to actually wear them? Power to the people!
