Every year millions of people tune in to watch the Emmy awards, Golden Globes and Academy Awards. Naturally, everyone wants to find out who will win which awards, but even more, people want to know what celebrities are wearing. This is wear styles and trends are set for the coming months. This is particularly true when it comes to jewelry. If you have any doubt, scan the pages of fashion magazines in the days following a big event and see all of the close-up snapshots that are taken of the luxury jewelry pieces that top stars around the world donned for such big events.
If you are curious about the jewelry trends that will take off in the coming months, all you need to do is take a rewind to the last awards shows to find out what some of the biggest names in Hollywood wore.
It would certainly seem as though diamond drop earrings are still in style and will stay that way for some time. America Ferrara wore a pair of stunning 2.5 carat diamond pendant earrings and she was not the only one either. Other stars who donned diamond drop earrings included Audra McDonald and Anastasia Griffith. Candace Bergen might have been off the screen for awhile but she also made an appearance wearing a similar pair of diamond earrings set in platinum as well.
Colored diamond earrings were also out in full swing as well. Chandra Wilson donned a pair of fancy cut diamond drop earrings in yellow. Emilie de Raven was caught wearing a pair of diamond earrings that were also set with cognac diamonds as well. Both pairs of earrings would certainly seem to indicate the colored diamonds, particularly in the hues of browns and yellows, are going to remain popular for some time.
The sizes of the earrings also tended to vary on the red carpets this year as well. A number of stars wore drop diamond earrings, although there were some who went with diamond hoops as well. Jean Smart wore a pair of diamond chandelier earrings while Kyra Sedgwick wore a pair of pyramid diamond earrings set in platinum. Lauren Conrad went with something a bit different and wore a pair of diamond stud earrings.
Bracelets were also out in force on the red carpet this year. One of the hottest trends that have been seen in the last few months and are expected to last throughout the early part of next year is chunky or cuff bracelets. Several celebrities were seen wearing just this style of bracelet on the red carpet this year, many of which were set with diamonds and other gemstones. Ashley Jensen was just one celebrity who chose to wear a cuff bracelet. The particular bracelet that she wore was set with sixty carats worth of diamonds. Rumor has it that the bracelet was valued at nearly half a million dollars. Of course, that was nothing compared to the diamond cuff bracelet that Katrina Bowden wore. Her bracelet had more than 65 carats worth of diamonds and had a reported worth of $545,000.
Jennifer Morrison also wore a cuff bracelet with a decidedly different twist. Her snake cuff bracelet was set with blackened platinum and brown diamonds.
Yellow diamonds were also seen in bracelets as well. Chandra Wilson selected a set of yellow diamond bracelets that had a total combined weight of 40 carats. No word on exactly how heavy a pair of 40 carat diamond bracelets might happen to be.
America Ferrara chose a cluster bracelet set with rose cut diamonds. Stacked bracelets made an appearance at awards this year as well. Julia Louis-Dreyfus was seen wearing stacked diamond bracelets that featured diamonds in white and yellow as well as rose colored gold. Marcia Cross also wore stacked diamond bracelets at awards this year as well.
Statement necklaces were also on hand this year. America Ferrera made news when she wore a 19th century diamond necklace with a flower pendant. Diamonds by the yard necklaces were sported by both Candice Bergen as well as Heidi Klum. Collar necklaces also appeared to be quite popular as well. Nicollette Sheridan was seen wearing just this style of necklace.
Finally, no celebrity would be caught out and about today without one of the most fashionable trends in diamond jewelry today; which is the right hand diamond ring. Several celebrities were seen sporting these rings, many of which featured colored diamonds in hues of yellow, brown and pink. Cheryl Hines and Elisabeth Moss were just two celebrities who were seen wearing diamond right hand rings.
From earrings to bracelets to necklaces and rings, it certainly seems as though a variety of new trends have been set and a few more will continue to live on.
