If you’re a less-is-more-kind of girl this award season may be for you.
There have been many high impact pieces for sure, but overall red carpet attendees have been draped in only a few well chosen pieces like a knockout pair of earrings paired with a diamond bangle.
Proof that a few carefully placed pieces really allow a gown to shine. After all, the purpose of jewelry is to compliment you (like a good date), but never upstage the overall look.
Let me assure you I’m going to skip the highly-panned Kristen Wiig choker debacle at the SAG Awards all together and get right to this award season’s jewelry trends.
Lorraine Schwartz has been a jewelry darling this award season with her large colored gemstones in bold settings being placed on style stars Angelina Jolie, Emily Blunt, and Julianna Margulies.
An understated counterpart to the modern boldness of Schwartz is the jewelry of Fred Leighton. His classically elegant jewels have served established stars including Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, and Helen Mirren this season.
Don’t worry -- we’re still seeing plenty of pieces from perennial biggies like Cartier, Harry Winston, and Tiffany & Co. As jewelry designers continue to be a big part of award season commentary the list of jewelers who’ve become household names is sure to grow.
I wonder if Elizabeth McGovern borrowed her jewelry from the set of Downton Abbey! Those look like leverback earrings, which I think were popular in that era. Beautiful!
