2011 Oscars – All About the Bling

The red carpet for the 2011 Oscars was a breeding ground for fabulous jewels. Gone were the trendy statement necklaces. This year was all about the earrings. Every celebrity that graced the red carpet could be seen wearing big, bold, beautiful earrings. From drop to pendant to chandelier, the styles were endless and the bling was abundant. Many of the A-listers donned traditional and classy diamonds but statements were made this year with colored gemstones – especially Emeralds. Emeralds were everywhere on the red carpet!

Emeralds seem to be making a splash on the scene this spring in every form. A big, bold pop of color is exactly what everyone needs after this long, cold, dark winter. And what better color to get the job done than emerald green? It is a fresh burst of color that is reminiscent of all the new life blooming. Amy Adams, who was nominated for best supporting actress, really took home the prize for the biggest emerald bling. She donned a a platinum and diamond necklace by Cartier that featured a 33 carat emerald pendant worth over $290,000. She completed her look with a Cartier platinum and diamond watch bracelet with a 30 carat emerald worth over $1 million.

The bling didn’t stop there, plenty of other celebrities really layered on the jewels for Hollywood’s biggest night. Reese Witherspoon accessorized with 35 carat Neil Lane diamond and emerald earrings worth over $1million. They were simple yet stunning pendant earrings with the stones cut in a square and tear drop shape. Scarlett Johansson paired her dress with really unique accessories. She wore simple ruby stud earrings but wore a “dragon flower” ring studded with diamonds, emeralds and rubies. It seems like the cocktail ring trend is sticking around this spring.

Some of the most stunning earrings of the season were seen on the red carpet. Penelope Cruz chose fabulous 27 carat yellow diamond chandelier earrings. They framed her face perfectly and were a great contrast to her burgandy dress. Annette Bening chose to go with emeralds donning bold pendant earrings that set off her art deco dress perfectly. Natalie Portman was another celebrity who put on gorgeous statement-making earrings for the occasion. She matched Tiffany&Co. rubelite tassel earrings with rose cut diamonds to her plum gown.

Other celebrities chose funky or vintage accessories for the big night. Nicole Kidman donned a vintage 150 carat diamond choker by Fred Leighton. Celine Dion also chose to go vintage with her necklace. She wore a stunning 18 karat yellow gold diamond and emerald pendant necklace by Bulgari. Gwenyth Paltrow had possibly the most unique jewels of the evening. She wore earrings and a brooch by Louis Vuitton. They were designed in a flame pattern with diamonds and colored gemstones.

Judging from what we saw on the red carpet this year, color is the way to make a statement this spring. Choose large earrings with stunning gemstones in any color your heart desires. You can’t go wrong with classic chandelier or drop earrings. Just remember, if you wear large earrings go without the necklace. You don’t want to make your look “top heavy”. For other accessories go with a matching cocktail ring or chunky cuff bracelet. The nature themes are still very much in style. Find accessories with designs like flowers, snakes or other whimsical shapes.
