The sighting: Actress Blake Lively recently attended the 2023 Barnard Annual Gala. She wore a delightful floral Carolina Herrera dress and some fabulous jewelry.

The jewels: The coolest thing about this jewelry look is the ear stacks! Lively paired bold bezeled Brent Neale colored gemstone earrings with a set of large pear-shaped diamond studs.

She’s also wearing a number of rings: a big ruby heart ring from Retrouvai and a number of unspecified others that look to be colored gems as well.

Blake Lively Instagram fan account @styleforblakelively credits Lorraine Schwartz for part of this, so I’m guessing Schwartz was the source of those luscious diamond studs or perhaps the rings that are hard to see.

The trends: Lots of trends happening here! Pear diamonds, big bezels, statement earrings without a necklace, and brightly colored gems.

What do we think? Lively famously does not use a stylist, so her jewelry choices always have the fascinating guarantee that the actress chose the pieces herself. This outfit features many of the star’s repeat favorite jewelry designers: she’s worn Brent Neale, Retrouvai, Lorraine Schwartz more than once before.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the actress wear more than one pair of large statement earrings together. I think it’s a really fun style move and one that’s very successful here. The pear studs are so large that you wouldn’t ever expect to see them as a second hole accent piece, but I love how they expand on the foundation of the Brent Neale earrings by extending lobe coverage.

I’ve said this before, but it must be said again here: Blake Lively must have strong earlobes.

Judgement: 16/10 for a creative and fun look.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
