Fall 2014 Jewelry Trends

Fall 2014 jewelry trend alert!

It’s almost time for jeans and boots, sweaters and scarves, the infamous pumpkin spice latte, and the latest fall jewelry trends (we always save the best for last!). This upcoming season’s jewelry trends mix classic with eclectic, functional with fun – you’re bound to try out at least one (or all) of these new jewelry fads, and look fabulous doing it.

Floral Jewelry: We know what you’re thinking. Wasn’t this a Spring 2014 jewelry trend? Yes, you avid JewelryInsider reader (we’re flattered)! You are correct – floral jewelry was a big deal this last spring, but this season it’s taking a slightly different direction. Spring’s floral jewelry was a bit wild and large. Fall’s floral jewelry is a bit more reserved (just a bit) with a contemporary flair. Don’t shy away from a “3D” flower necklace worn just along the neckline, as seen in Dolce and Gabbana’s fall 2014 ready-to-wear runway show.

Statement Bracelets: Lucky Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen recently appeared on Good Morning America to talk about the hottest trends of the upcoming season. Of course we tuned in and guess what was on her list? That’s right, statement bracelets! We are huge fans of this trend, mainly because there’s no need to limit yourself to just one bracelet. Stack em’ up! The more the merrier.

Singular Earrings: There was quite a bit of commentary over Angelina Jolie’s one earring look at the Maleficent premier, and now it’s one of the hottest fall 2014 jewelry trends! We’ll have you know, we never doubted her jewelry choices one bit. This new craze is exactly how it sounds – wear one singular earring instead of two.

Scarf Necklace: Fall is all about being cozy, but there’s a way to combine cozy and chic. This upcoming fall season Karl Lagerfeld showed us that the scarf is more that just an accessory that keeps you warm. It can act as a necklace or a layering piece for other necklaces – genius!

Celebrate May with this month’s official birthstone – lush green emerald (what else?) Did you know emerald is the symbol of spring? Here are some more fun tid-bits about the gemstone!
       Emerald symbolized hope, rebirth, and the arrival of spring throughout the ancient world.
       Some cultures believed the gem brought its owners love, intelligence, and eloquence.
       Emerald is the gift of choice for couples celebrating their 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries (in case you need to buy any gifts for any upcoming celebrations…hint, hint).

Just two days ago, Sotheby’s New York premiered a number of extravagant jewels from the estate of big band/swing singer Eydie Gorme. Almost all of the jewelry in her collection was a gift from husband Steve Lawrence, also her onstage partner. Among the jewels is a 36.53 ct emerald ring set in platinum and 18K gold. Um…can we just hold this ring please?

Any guesses on how much this ring was auctioned off for? A whopping…wait for it…$4,645,000!

The Jewelry Insider

February 27, 2012

 

Oscar jewelry at the 84th Academy Awards was an elegant affair complete with Wonder Woman cuffs, capes and crazy carats galore.

While some of my Oscar predictions came true (Angelina wore studs. Again; gold dresses were everywhere; blue sapphires made a showing, statement earrings are still trending) – others totally missed the mark (necklaces weren’t the no-show I thought they were going to be – not by a long shot).

 

For fashion followers, the colors of the night were a mix of devilish red and angelic white – with a lot of black or black and gold and a smattering of blues/purples.

Here’s the ubiquitous Top Ten List for your reading pleasure. Be sure to weigh in with your rants and raves!

TOP TEN (in no particular order):

1.  Gwenyth Paltrow

 

Gwenyth Paltrow, in a white, caped Tom Ford number and a 6-inch diamond cuff by Anna Hu and tons of right hand rings had all the crazy jewelry-loving tweeps on the Live Tweet Fest (#oscarjewelry) gasping for air.

2. Viola Davis

 

Viola Davis sparkled in green emerald stunners by Lorraine Schwartz and a Vera Wang masterpiece (I love you, Meryl, but Ms. Davis SO deserved the Oscar this year. Sigh)

3. Michelle Williams

 

Michelle Williams wore 30-carats of old mine-cut diamond ice by Fred Leighton for Forevermark around her neck and added a bow brooch on her dress (not pictured) to boot. Perfection. Almost too perfect, perhaps?

4. Stacey Keibler

 

Stacey Keibler wowed in marvelous Marchesa and Lorraine Schwartz earrings (that I swear I’ve seen on Beyonce before).

 

That dress was simply made for her – a nice consolation when George shows up with someone else next year.

5. Octavia Spencer

 

Big winner, Octavia Spencer, looked lovely in the night’s white color trend (another Tadashi Shoji number) and platinum and diamond deco-drops from Neil Lane.

6. Natalie Portman

 

Natalie Portman in Harry Winston. Classic. Elegant. And a one doozy of a necklace sighting – the night’s most surprising trend!

7. Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain won big in $2 million worth of Harry Winston jewels and an Alexander McQueen number that had the red carpet buzzing.

8. Penelope Cruz

 

Penelope Cruz sparkled in another stunning riviere necklace (a la Michelle Wiliams) and diamond clusters by Chopard. And that dress! To die!

9. Milla Jovovich

 

Milla Jovovich was the first ‘big’ star on the red carpet, and she set the bar high in this stunning white beaded Elie Saab number and Jacob & Co. diamond jewels. Big win!

10. Emma Stone

 

And finally…I’ll go with Emma Stone’s rockin rubies by Louis Vuitton EVEN THOUGH SHE WORE THE SAME DRESS AS NICOLE KIDMAN from the Oscars a few years ago. Fashion faux pas, my dear.

 

The losers for me were Shailene Woodley in a dress meant for someone twice her age, Rooney Mara for boycotting jewelry altogether (even though her Givenchy couture dress was divine, and Sandra Bullock in barely there diamond drops (zzzzzzzz……)

 

 

And finally. Angelina Jolie wore $2.5 million of Neil Lane diamond ice in the form of some back brooches and (wait for it….) diamond friggin studs. Again with the studs? Yeah, I’m disappointed, but when you can rock a frock like that (the audience literally applauded her legs when they appeared on stage)? Who needs jewelry.

 

So who am I missing? Weigh in with your thoughts, jewelry hounds!

The Jewelry Insider

February 24, 2012

 

With the 84th Academy Awards a mere days away, it’s time – once again – to put the champagne on ice and dish out some juicy Oscar jewelry predictions. You know you love ’em.

But first, a quick reminder that this Sunday at 6pm EST all the jewelry-loving tweeps will be using the #oscarjewelry hashtag to Live Tweet all the red carpet shenanigans.

 

We may not have a Glam Cam – but we’ve got fangs sharper than a diamond shard when it comes to arm-chair quarterbacking the fashion choices of the A list. AND we play drinking games. Me-OW!

Prediction #1 – Wonder Woman Cuffs

I just participated in a Style Counsel piece for InDesign Mag where we ‘trend spotter’ types all touted the arrival of the double cuff on the red carpet. Sofia Vergara, Elle McPherson, Kate Beckinsale and Nicole Ritchie all sported the look during Awards Season this year, and the trend is likely to continue on Sunday night.

Why wear one gazillion-dollar piece of arm candy, when you can have two?

Prediction #2 – Neckwear No-Show

 

One would think the ‘case of the missing necklace’ would be solved now that Lindsay Lohan is the ‘home stretch’ of her community service – BUT – the little devils just aren’t coming out to play at all on the red carpet lately.

Gone are the bib necklaces of Awards Shows past (like this stunner on Amy Adams in 2008). We’re not even getting a decent-sized diamond Y-neck!

 

While I may be off here, I’m thinking the statement earring trend is where the big boys are going to play again this year – and with designer Lorraine Schwartz dominating the red carpet, I’m sure the celebs have been doing their ear lobe exercises all week.

Prediction #3 – Blue Sapphires

 

Emerald jewelry has become the gemstone of choice when it comes to adding a splash of color to a red carpet look – from Angelina Jolie’s emerald earrings in 2009 to Reese Witherspoon last year.

 

BUT – the 2012 runways have been swimming in a sea of blue hues (Chanel Couture, Anna Sui, Oscar de la Renta and more), and I think the jewelry world may just follow suit. Just a hunch.

Prediction #4 – Golden Gowns

 

While shiny dresses may be an ‘easy way out’ when it comes to making a statement on the red carpet (Taylor Swift, anyone?) metallics are – indeed – trending, with Badgley Mischka, Naeem Kahn, Marchesa and many more featuring them in their Fall 2012 RTW shows.

The vintage sequined look of the Great Gatsby-era is also big right now – and so are those long, head-to-toe sequined looks that belong to the Alexis Carrington/Dynasty days of the 80s.

 

So, ladies. When in doubt? Wear a big shiny dress to the Oscars. At least you’ll make the Joan Rivers “Best List”.


Prediction #5 – Angelina Jolie and Michelle Williams Will Wear Studs

 

I’ve given up hope that Angelina will bring us another Lorraine Schwartz jewelry juggernaut like the emeralds of yesteryear. Every time I think: “THIS is going to be the event where she graces us with something other than studs, hoops or ‘just Brad’ in the accessory department,” well..I wind up as disappointed as a tree-hugger at a logger convention.

 

Coming in a close second on the list of “Can’t Seem to Top Her Own Fabulosity”? Michelle Williams.

I LOVED her 2006 Tangerine Dream of an Oscar dress and her 19th Century vintage diamond necklace from Fred Leighton was the perfect complement. But these days? I haven’t seen her sparkle in anything other than barely-there studs and an eye twinkle. Zzzzzz……

 

C’mon A-listers! It’s the Oscars. I want to wear a bib to catch the drool this year. I want my jaw to hit the floor so hard I have to put in carpet to cover the cracks. I want Kelly Osbourne’s hair color to return to something resembling… ‘human’.

 

But I digress…

With Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Natalie Portman, Penelope Cruz, and Emma Stone all presenting, I’m sure there will be plenty of jewelry conniption fits to complement my champagne.

 

What are your thoughts about the Oscar line-up this year? Agree, disagree with my predictions? Weigh in…

We gawk harder…so you don’t have to.

Angelina Jolie’s Diamond Disappointment

 bradpitt_Main_Blog_2011-05-18

The most anticipated star to walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this year, hands down, was Angelina Jolie. Always elegant, always gorgeous – and often with nary a jewel to the naked eye – this A-lister has it well within her power to make every jewelry gawker and diamond diva quiver in our boots with a jaw-dropping jewelry choice (Exhibit A: The Oscar emeralds).

However.

 

She ususally just doesn’t go there. And Monday night was no exception. Her chocolate Atelier Versace gown was pure perfection – but instead of a creative couture jewelry choice from festival sponsor, Chopard, for example, she went with the tried and true stud (and I’m not talking about Brad).

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Cannes Film Festival Jewelry Update


Aishwarya Rai in Chopard

Good news, jewelry hounds! More crazy carats were spotted on the Croisette at the 64th Annual CannesFilm Festival! We’re talking Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz, Uma Thurman – even Jane Fonda!

Sarah Jessica Parker in Fred Leighton

Chopard continues to sparkle on all the big names – and while I’ve seen Ms. Fonda’s Chopard 160-carat (!) sapphire stunner before on their Co-President, Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele back in 2009 –  a bauble like that never really gets old, right?


Jane Fonda in Chopard

Uma brought out another pair of Chopard chandeliers for the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere, but IMHO – they’re not nearly as jaw-dropping as her opening night emeralds).


Uma Thurman in Chopard

But color was definitely a continuing trend as A-lister Penelope Cruz rocked these rubellite earrings (also by Chopard) for her Pirates of the Caribbean red carpet waltz.


Penelope Cruz in Chopard

Tonight, though, is a big night. Why? Brangelina is making a red carpet appearance for Brad’s film, Tree of Life. And while Ms. Jolie is usually a “diamonds on the down low” kindof jewelry celeb, I’m hoping just this ONCE – she rocks out with a statement piece. A jewelry hound can dream….

Stay tuned! In the meantime, here are some more highlights:


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’).

2011 Oscar Jewelry Roundup: The Trends & Top Ten from Tinseltown

Oscar jewelry fashion at the 2011 Academy Awards was a smattering of surprises paired with the usual classic diamond deluge. Fasten your seatbelts, jewelry hounds. Here’s my glittering recap to the red carpet Super Bowl.

Red-hued frocks with elegant diamond looks were a big trend (Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Hudson), along with emerald jewels (Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Annette Bening), knock-out necklaces (Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren), and colorful earrings in surprising silhouettes (Marisa Tomei, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman).

While there was a very real fear that the ‘less is more’ trend would dominate the night – (Michelle Williams, Mandy Moore and Jennifer Lawrence all opted for minimal jewels – among many others), Oscar always brings out the best in some of our go-to fashion divas.

Here are my top ten looks of the night, but be sure to visit Jewelry.com on Facebook for my complete album with rants and raves capturing all the Oscar looks. And better yet? Check in with JewelClub Monday morning to get all the hot 2011 Oscar jewels at prices that don’t need their own body guard.

1. Anne Hathaway Oscar Jewelry

Some might say Tiffany diamonds and a red dress are safe Oscar bets. I say – that’s the kind of red carpet fashion we jewelry hounds are looking for (and dare I say) expect from the A-list. And Annie’s jewelry looks just kept on coming throughout the show (I’ll be tracking down pics and credits for all – so stay tuned!)

2. Nicole Kidman Oscar Jewelry


 

How can you make a stunning 150-carat Fred Leighton diamond necklace look even more beautiful? Put it on Nicole Kidman and have it DRAPE DOWN HER BACK! Win!

3. Marisa Tomei Oscar Jewelry

Van Cleef & Arpels is responsible for these sapphire, diamond and emerald statement stunners. And her Charles James dress from 1950 almost made Tim Gunn hyperventilate, bless his heart. She’s never looked better.

4. Natalie Portman Oscar Jewelry

The sensational Live Twitter Chat gang (some of the best minds in jewelry and fashion participated – click here for more!) were either in LOVE with these Tiffany ruby tassels or thought them to be, um, pedestrian. I love the pomegranate color – not the silhouette so much. It just wasn’t the knock-out moment the belle of the Oscar ball needed to bring (a la Gwyneth in Cathy Waterman and Ralph Lauren when she won back in the day).

5. Gwyneth Paltrow Oscar Jewelry

Speaking of G-Pal – only she could pull off this Calvin Klein silvery sensation of a dress paired with these unique Louis Vuitton gemstone (bird?) earrings from their L’Ame du Voyage collection. A bold choice and a big win!

6. Helen Mirren Oscar Jewelry

Dame Mirren reigned over the red carpet in a pearl, diamond and platinum necklace from 1907 and a diamond bracelet from Cartier’s Archive Museum Collection. This woman always looks lovely – although the length of her necklace is a bit long here for my taste.

7. Reese Witherspoon Oscar Jewelry

This year’s Angelina Jolie-emerald-earring copycat award goes to…Reese Witherspoon, who looked lovely in 35-carat emerald drops by Neil Lane (her jewelry totaled $1 million). Annette Bening? You come in second place…

8. Jennifer Hudson Oscar Jewelry

Jaws dropped when this dream girl stepped on the red carpet in a ‘tangerine/red’ Versace number and Neil Lane diamonds. And I am telling you. You don’t have to go anywhere, sister.

9. Mandy Moore Oscar Jewelry

The ‘less is more’ win of the night for me went to this pretty diamond cluster earring on Mandy Moore. The overall look is the perfect example of how to wear jewelry with a sparkly dress. Just lovely.

10. Amy Adams Oscar Jewelry

Such a bold choice to wear navy, no neck line and this Cartier emerald and diamond wrap necklace and a 30.75-carat carved emerald and diamond bracelet-watch worth $1.025 million. Everyone is talking about her jewelry – despite the fact that it belonged with a different ensemble.

Whew! So what do you guys think of my Top Ten Oscar jewels for 2011? Who did I miss? Weigh in – and be sure to double back tomorrow for my ‘after party’ jewelry gawk-fest. Hoping for an Angelina sighting at the Vanity Fair party. Stay tuned!

(By request, a close-up of Amy Adams’ Cartier wrist bling. Wow!)

February 24, 2011

 

My trip down Oscar jewelry memory lane earlier this week kicked my diamond-infused fantasy life into overdrive.

How amazing would it feel to hold that Taylor-Burton 69-carat diamond – let alone pick it out from your own personal jewelry stash and wear it down the Oscar red carpet in a dress to match your eyes?

 

Or. OK. How great would it be to hold those Angelina Jolie Oscar emeralds in your grubby little hands or walk the red carpet with your own personal set of body guards like Natalie Portman at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

Who doesn’t love body guards?

 

Thankfully, I’m not alone in diamond dreamland. JewelClub is riding the Oscar jewelry fantasy wave like Laird Hamilton on a tsumani – with a whopping collection of (count ’em) 20! Oscar jewelry looks for less on their smashing sample sale site.

They’ve got real-life alternatives to Liz’s Taylor-Burton diamond dream, Angelina’s emeralds, Julia’s hoops, Natalie’s diamond bib neck, Gwenyth’s teardrops. They even have glittering ghosts from Oscar’s past – like Sharon Stone’s diamond drops and Nicole Kidman’s “Tom Who?” earrings from 1995!

 

It’s a strong showing of pre-Oscar jewelry fashion to give us a taste of their Oscar sample sale to come – and it’s one doozy of a show stopper.

They claim their price points deserve their own gold statue, and I can’t disagree. Check out their Oscar Couture Sample Sale here and let me know what Oscar jewel you want for your own collection!

 

We may not go home with Brad Pitt every night – but, darn it! – we can certainly have earrings that look like they do!

2011 Golden Globes Jewelry Fashion Recap

Natalie Portman in Victor & Rolf and Tiffany jewelry

Jewelry fashion at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards was a lot like that bittersweet time when you realize there isn’t an Easter Bunny. You’re kinda disappointed – but as long as you still have some sugar in a basket – all is good.

Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

While no one knocked my socks off this year, the sugary sparkle came in the guise of big earring looks, gumball-sized cocktail rings, layered wristwear and a few whimsical surprises to keep us all guessing.

Julianne Moore in Lanvin and Bvlgari jewelry

Candy-colored frocks in pinks (I was right!) and greens littered the carpet, with a dose of ‘hide your husband’ red and basic black for good measure.

Catherine Zeta Jones in Monique Lhuillier and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace and Robert Procop jewelry

January Jones in Versace and Neil Lane jewelry (not pictured)

Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang and David Webb jewelry

Statement earrings were the most popular jewelry choice tonight, with traditional diamond chandeliers rocking it right along with newcomers like geode gems on Kelly Osbourne and the forgotten step-child of the jewelry world – onyx on Nicole Kidman.  Who knew?

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen and Kimberly McDonald jewelry

Leighton Meester in Burberry and Cathy Waterman jewelry

Tina Fey in L’Wren Scott and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

Guiliana Rancic in Ippolita jewelry

Nicole Kidman in Prada and Fred Leighton jewelry

Many opted for the understated but always-elegant diamond stud earring to add the sparkle splash. Zzzzzzz……

Piper Perabo in Oscar de la Renta

Eva Longoria in Zac Posen and Neil Lane jewelry

Delicate, web-like diamond necklace designs took the place of the blingtastic bib-look of years’ past:

Dame Helen Mirren in $1.6 million Cartier necklace

Sarah Hyland in Max Azria and Mikimoto jewelry

Diana Argon in J Mendel and Cathy Waterman jewelry

And turquoise is still going strong? Who knew?


The jewelry-loving peanut gallery in our champagne-filled Live Red Carpet Twitter chat last night all agreed that Jane Krakowski’s Lorraine Schwartz earrings, Tina Fey’s Lorraine Schwartz ensemble, Halle Berry’s diamond bangles and Sofia Vergara’s, well, everything were some of the best jewels of the night.


And the worst? According to the JIC ladies, Heidi Klum jumped the shark in an ensemble that was “all project and no runway”. Classic.

While bigger wasn’t better in the bauble department this year – it was de riguer for these bride of Frankenstien-inspired tresses. Yikes.


And Sandra Bullock’s bangs deserve their own accessory category called: “unfortunate”. Sorry, Sandy.

Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham

What do you guys think? Who did I miss? Weigh in! And thanks again to all who joined the #globejewelry Twitter chat extravaganza. See you at the Oscars on Feburary 27th (#oscarjewelry)!
