This year’s Grammy Awards were full of not only great musical performances (hello Lady Gaga tribute to David Bowie!), but also great jewelry. T Swift showed off her version of the choker trend with a colorful gemstone necklace, while Lady Gaga matched her bedazzled blue eye makeup with some pretty ear bling. Demi Lovato took a jewelry risk (and totally rocked it!) with a body chain and several diamond rings, while Carrie Underwood showed up in a gorgeous 48 ct necklace (a Valentine’s Day gift from her husband).

February is here (we can’t believe it!), which means it’s time to rock that royal purple birthstone amethyst. Fun fact about amethyst – amethyst comes from the Greek work “amethystos,” which means “sober.” In ancient Greece, it was believed amethyst could protect you from getting drunk (imagine that!).

Shop February’s regal hued birthstone amethyst at Jewelry.com.

From the catwalk to Coachella, the statement pendant knows no boundaries. A chic and sleek trick to shying away from those bigger-than-life bibs, take a gander through our top fave pieces spotted on A-list celebs. Click on any one of these covetable sparklers to get the look for less!

Trend alert! Layering necklaces is a hot jewelry trend (and a great excuse to wear more jewelry). The key to pulling off this look, is to start with a base necklace, let’s say 16 inches in length, and layer with longer necklaces of varying lengths, such as 18 inches, 20 inches, and even longer. Layer on as many pieces as you desire and let your personal style show!

Trend alert!
Bib necklaces are a fun and classy jewelry trend to try out this spring and summer. Celebs are accessorizing their red carpet looks with these fashion-forward necklaces. So what exactly is a bib necklace? A bib necklace is a larger piece of jewelry, where a thick section of the necklace sits on the chest, mimicking a baby’s bib. These necklaces were common in 7th century Greek and Roman jewelry (so you know they’re stylish!), and have been used throughout the ages to accessorize evening gowns.

Here are some tips on how to wear a bib necklace.
       Bib necklaces are the perfect statement jewelry pieces. Allow them to be the main focus of your look by pairing them with solid colors.
       Bib necklaces look great worn overtop of your shirt. For instance: wear a button-up shirt with a bib necklace at the collar. Of course, the beauty of these necklaces is that they can be worn with a number of outfits (check out the celebs rockin’ their necklaces with dresses above!).
       Don’t pair your bib necklaces with too much additional jewelry. They should stand out by themselves!

More Cannes Film Festival Jewelry!

The Cannes Film Festival is still going strong, so you know what that means – we’re here to report on the greatest Cannes celeb jewelry looks! Just like Cannes opening day, statement earrings were a hot red carpet trend this past weekend, but we also spotted some beautiful necklaces and bracelets.

Salma Hayek looked beautiful as usual in a strapless pink Yves Saint Laurent gown. She accessorized with a diamond snake Cartier bracelet that wrapped up her wrist. What a unique (and blingy) statement piece!

Cate Blanchett paired a bejeweled Givenchy gown with a pair of unique sapphire Chopard chandelier earrings. We think her look worked nicely for the premiere of “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (doesn’t the bodice of her gown remind you of a dragon?).

Cheryl Cole rocked the red carpet in a strapless black Monique Lhuillier gown, but what really caught our eyes were her extremely large monochrome drop earrings. Check out the size of those babies!

Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor kept it traditional with a pale pink Anamika Khanna sari dress. She completed her look with a stunning necklace (choker’s are in back in ladies) designed by her mom Sunita Kapoor (aw!). Love this look!

Met Gala 2014 Best Dressed

Anna Wintour’s infamous Met Gala took place last night and while no, we weren’t there (hey, we can dream!), we have scoured the web to check out the attendees in their very best dresses and baubles, and let’s not forget tuxes and suits. This year, the Met Gala 2014 theme was “White Tie and Decorations.” The theme honored Charles James, a British-born designer known for his glamorous ball gowns, classic silhouettes, and overall elegant designs. Here are our top four favorite looks (how could we not include SJP?!).

Best-Dressed: Sarah Jessica Parker channeled her inner Sex and the City and looked simply stunning in a black and white Oscar de la Renta gown, made especially for her of course. It was SJP’s idea to have de la Renta’s name embroidered across the back of the dress in scarlet embroidery thread. She accessorized with long white gloves and Fred Leighton earrings and bracelet.

Best-Dressed: Blake Lively and hubby Ryan Reynolds both looked amazing and pulled off the white tie theme flawlessly, but really do they ever look anything less than perfect? The lovebirds wore custom-designed Gucci pieces. Blake paired her silk chiffon gown with Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a large cocktail ring. Ryan on the other hand didn’t wear any accessories, but let’s be serious, he doesn’t need to.

Best-Dressed: Kate Bosworth looked gorge (and supper skinny!) in a pink Stella McCartney gown. Kate wore a number of gold accessories such as drop earrings, cuff bracelets, rings, and a choker-type necklace. Her jewelry came from a number of different designers including Ana Khouri, Vieri, Sidney Garber, and Anna Sheffield.

Best-Dressed: Beyonce can never do wrong, we all know that. Queen Bee paired a black Givenchy dress with a headpiece, and accessorized with black Lorraine Schwartz earrings (talk about statement jewelry) and several rings. One of the rings actually slid off her finger, and hubby Jay Z found it and acted out a mock proposal. How cute!

Worst-Dressed: You know this post wouldn’t be complete without us including at least one worst-dressed. That title goes to…Lena Dunham! We love Lena, we really do (go Girls!), but this dress really doesn’t flatter much. Maybe something a little longer would have been a better choice to accompany the theme of the night.

Scarlett Johansson Jewelry Look for Less

Scarlett Johansson (ScarJo) is known as one of the hottest women on the planet – what a title!

We’re big fans of hers, and love keeping tabs on her red-carpet looks. Recently, ScarJo has been promoting her latest Captain America 2 film.

Check out the photo of her below (pregs & fabulous!), at the UK premiere for the movie. She looks just stunning in her red dress with matching lip, but what we’re really envious of is her jewelry. Look at that necklace. Can you say bling bling?
