Did you watch this year’s Emmy Awards? Whether you wanted to see your favorite shows earn honors, or you couldn’t wait to gasp over the best -- and worst -- dresses, you probably noticed some of the show-stopping jewelry looks. Did you think any celebrity in particular rocked the red carpet?
JCK - the jewelry industry authority - published its list of favorite jewelry looks from the awards show. You probably wish you could spend just five minutes with any of the selections listed in this article. Unfortunately, not all of us can borrow jewelry from famous Hollywood jewelers like Lorraine Schwartz and Harry Winston.
This year, two top trends among celebrities were cuffs and colored gemstones. Just because you’re neither Nicole Kidman nor Reese Witherspoon doesn’t mean you can’t also enjoy one of these trends.
In fact, wearing Sumaris Jewelry is a great compromise - it’s on trend and affordable. Best of all, it’s one of a kind. In this post, we look at three of the top looks in cuffs and colored gemstones and explain how you can recreate them with Sumaris stunners:
Did you see Debra Messing wearing David Webb earrings? Webb is known for mixing enamel with precious metals and gems. He’s also not shy about using color. A similar pair of earrings on his site retails for $52,000!
If you’re looking for a striking statement earring that won’t cost you as much as an entry-level BMW sedan, try our ENCIRCLED statement earring, which is just as sculptural and interesting. It features Swarovski crystal, mother-of-pearl, and freshwater pearl. Or, if you crave a fresh pop of the red that Debra carried so confidently, try our BRIGHT SPOT earrings, designed with vintage Czech buttons, Lucite, and cubic zirconia.
And take a hint from Debra - the color of your accessories doesn’t have to match your dress exactly!
Jane Fonda looked like a green goddess in a diamond-and-emerald earrings and necklace combo from Gismondi 1754. Did you know this ensemble contained 200 carats of gemstones? We love her unconventional choice to wear a sleek, pink dress with this rich and classic -- yet simultaneously unexpected -- jewelry look.
Don’t feel like spending your life paying off the debt you’d amass by purchasing these accessories? We have some alternatives. First, consider our BAUBLED necklace, which features a vintage Jonne brooch, vintage and contemporary jade-green Lucite, and Czech crystal. Or, try our LEAFY GREEN look: a vintage brooch and green crystals will wrap your neck in emerald-like color without the hefty price tag.
Did you see Viola Davis wearing Harry Winston’s diamond cuff? Even though her accessories were minimal, they still packed a punch with 115 total carats. Who needs much more than eye-catching wrist candy?
When you choose to buy a more affordable alternative to Viola’s cuff, you have more money for fun things like pretty lipstick and glamorous handbags. Choose SQUARED WITHIN instead; it still makes just as large of a statement and may arguably be more interesting. Why? It features a vintage cut-steel shoe clip, made in France. Other elements include a Czech glass button, Swarovski crystal, and a sterling silver lobster clasp.
Now that you have some ideas for making your own red carpet looks, which awards do you think you’ll be bringing home?
