For many years now, I’ve been live tweeting the Red Carpet for the major awards shows and then writing an article about the jewels worn by the stars. To be honest, this year I decided I just wanted to watch the show and enjoy it. (Boy was it a nice change!) In fact, I wasn’t planning on writing any article having to do with the Golden Globes at all. But that’s before a few stars wore jewelry that really inspired me. Jessica Biel, Keri Russell and Nicole Kidman all wore pieces that I would wear in a heartbeat. This sent me scurrying to the internet to see if I could find similar looks. And guess what? I did! Though many are still at a price point that’s not in my budget, it’s going to encourage me to keep my eyes open when I’m out and about. Of course I have to share my finds with you, as you may be inspired as well.
First up, Keri Russell. Having loved her since her Felicity days, I’ve always been a fan of her laid-back luxe look. When I watched her interviewed on the Red Carpet, I was impressed with how at ease she was — completely comfortable with herself, which is a true gift indeed. The icing on the cake was the Annarita Celano earrings she was wearing. Two different earrings, yet in total harmony with each other.
I found these earrings to be SO refreshing amidst the parade of more traditional styles. (It’s definitely more the look I would go for if I were walking the carpet.) Here’s a closer look at the styles she was wearing: the Lisca Amo and the Lisca Hoop.
Being a lover of antique jewelry, it’s no surprise that these grabbed my attention. I found a couple antique pair online that have a similar look. First is a pair from Doyle & Doyle with lovely granulation detail.
Granted, Nicole’s necklace was composed of over 48 carats of diamonds, and a purchase like this is just NOT possible for us mere mortals. Though I did happen to find a couple Georgian paste riviere necklaces that are still an investment, but they won’t set you back a few years’ salary. I found the first one on Erica Weiner’s website — one of my favorite jewelry stores in NYC.
So there you have it — three looks that are now completely stuck in my brain. What do you think of them? Were there other gems that dazzled you on the stars? I’d truly enjoy hearing from you in the comment section below. Sparkle on!
