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!
