Judge the Jewels: Brittany Snow Brightens Up the Oscars in Pomellato Tanzanite

She wore a collar-style necklace of large yellow gold pavé chain links alternating with rich, juicy cabochon tanzanite.




The sighting: Actress Brittany Snow was one of the first celebs I spotted on this year’s Oscars red carpet. I may not know what she’s acted in lately, but she was absolutely one of my favorite jewelry looks of the night.

The jewels: Snow is wearing the Pomellato Catene High Jewelry necklace, a collar-style necklace of large yellow gold pavé chain links alternating with rich, juicy cabochon tanzanite. The jewel features 70 carats of tanzanite and 2,561 brown diamonds.

The actress is also wearing a yellow gold Pomellato Castello High Jewelry ring set with a 16.50-carat tanzanite and diamonds.

The trends: The decision to wear a colorful statement necklace with a colorful gown is a departure from leading red carpet trends in the best way, but the actual necklace here is very on-trend. Its large links, collar length, rich blue gems, and cabochon cuts all reflect style elements that are very of-the-moment.

What do we think? This is great! The large links and lush cabochons of the necklace give it an interesting texture that really stands out from the rest of the evening’s necklaces, which were mostly white diamonds.

I love how those lush blueberries of tanzanite pop against the yellow of the actress’s gown, and the fact that the ring features a different cut of tanzanite adds another dimension of contrast to the ensemble that I really enjoy.

I only have one quibble, and I bet you can guess what it is: I wish she were wearing earrings!! Imagine a tanzanite cabochon stud or maybe a cluster of tanzanite and colored diamonds to tie in the rest of the necklace? Either way, I hate to see empty earlobes on a red carpet.

Judgement: 14/10 for a very cool statement piece and excellent color combo.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
