With the Oscars just around the corner, everyone’s dying to know who will be wearing what. But here at Grand Jewelers, we’re less interested in the clothes—show us the jewels! From glinting teardrop pendants to glamorously oversized studs, we’ve got the red carpet covered. Here’s a peek at what this year’s ceremony has in store – and how you can find these looks at Grand Jewelers!
Let It Stand Alone
Taking our cues from this year’s Golden Globe Awards, we’re betting on some showstopping designs this Oscars—and we’ll be watching for jewelry that stands on its own. One of this year’s trends seems to be simplicity, so don’t be surprised to see tasteful, solitary pieces on this year’s crop of starlets. At the Golden Globes, Zoe Saldana modeled Bulgari teardrop earrings accented with emerald and amethyst, which brought out the salmon hues in her ruffled gown. A necklace, even a simple one, might have detracted from the look, but Saldana’s choice for earrings only was exactly right.
Modern celebs aren’t always interested in the gaudy, the showy, or the flashy. Thandie Newton complemented a sleek white gown with spare Harry Winston accents at this year’s Golden Globe ceremony. A thin metallic strand at her neck, along with monotone diamond teardrop earrings, lent her a lunar, ethereal look. We’re hoping to see more understated beauty at this year’s Academy Awards – and we can’t wait to gather inspiration for our own designs!
We can’t wait to see what Sofia Vergara has in store for us this year. At the 2017 Golden Globe ceremonies, Vergara stole the show in an ornate golden sheath with a pair of Lorraine Schwartz chandelier earrings to match. Her showy beauty perfectly complemented the intricate qualities of the gown and jewels.
And for something simpler, we take our cues from Ruth Negga, who set off a metallic zip-up dress with a Gemfields ruby cuff by Fred Leighton at the Golden Globe Awards this year. With her ears and neck bare, Negga let the piece at her wrist do all the talking—and we listened! We can’t wait to see more unusual jewelry choices at this weekend’s ceremonies, and we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for unusual pieces of all shapes and sizes. In the meantime, we have a great selection of cuffs, bracelets and necklaces available now at Grand Jewelers!
When in Doubt, Go Classic
We expect to see plenty of stars sticking with the tried-and-true classics: diamond teardrop necklaces, simple pearl or diamond studs, and timeless bracelets. Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra was flaunting a gorgeous ice-blue pendant by Lorraine Schwartz, and Naomie Harris looked stunning at the Golden Globes in oversized, leaf-inspired diamond earrings by Tiffany & Co.
Enjoy the Show!
This year, we can’t wait to see what the Academy Awards ceremony has in store. We’re excited to see the dazzling range of this year’s trendiest jewelry—as well as those classic looks that endure year after year. We’re eager to witness a colorful ceremony that celebrates diversity on all levels, and inspires people from all walks of life to look their best, stand their straightest, and show the world what they can do!
