Red Carpet Jewelry at the Oscars 2016
The Oscars is probably the biggest red carpet event of the year, so there was plenty of sparkling jewels to lust and drool over. The stunning Kate Blanchett was the standout, when it came to her choice of jewelry, with a gorgeous pair of platinum drop earrings, set with dozens of round diamonds, by Tiffany & Co. They worked perfectly with the dreamy, powder blue gown, with ornate detailing, from Armani Privé.
Saoirse Rohan showed us all how to work the mismatched earring trend, with stunning Chopard drop earrings, featuring a whole plethora of precious stones, including 18 carats of emeralds, 6 carats of jadelies and over 3 carats of diamonds, as well as pearls. They looked so beautiful with her sea green sparkling gown from Calvin Klein Collection. Naomi Watts also showed plenty of sparkle on the red carpet in an amazing ombre Armani Privé gown, that she teamed with a dynamite collar necklace from Bulgari, with brilliant cut and pave diamonds…an absolutely stunning look all round.

Red Carpet Jewelry at the MET Gala 2016
The MET Gala is a red carpet event that sees our favourite A-listers, really push the boundaries when it comes to their fashion choices. So, most of the ensembles were on point, and that includes the jewelry. The jewelry look that really pushed the boundaries, was that of Kate Bosworth and the amazing diamond Dolce & Gabbana crown/headpiece. She matched it to her heavily embellished Dolce & Gabbana gown, looking like a character out of a fantasty movie, whilst remaining super chic. The hair, the make up and the styling, were all on point. Bravo Miss Bosworth.
There was plenty of other covetable jewelry looks on the MET Gala red carpet, with almost too much sparkle to handle. She is one of Hollywood’s finest beauties, so it was no surprise to see Amber Heard looking stunning at theMET Gala in a slinky golden gown from Ralph lauren Collection. She matched her jewels to her gown perfectly with delicate gold and diamond necklaces by Anita Ko. Marot Robbie wore a stunning crisp white gown by Calvin Klein Collection, which really set off her 18 carat gold Bone Cuufs by Tiffany & Co and Elsa Peretti Diamond by the Yard earrings.
