Kate Beckinsale Had an Ear Party at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival

She was a vision in pink while promoting Prisoner’s Daughter.




KATE BECKINSALE HAS always gotten it right when it comes to red carpet events. She usually sparkles in long earrings or one or two pieces of diamond jewelry. And while her jewelry styling always works for her, it seems to be getting a little predicable. Beckinsale and her stylist clearly know what works best in jewelry with her swan-like neck, so, sure, why not dress her ears in different styles and modern, antique and vintage periods of linear earrings? But something is a bit off this time.

The ear party is a playful and dazzling mix of Bulgari’s longer diamond pair and what seems to be a floral component stud of the main earring and then a diamond stud going up her earlobe. She is also wearing some diamond rings that aren’t shown in the photos, but I have seen them. They are also from Bulgari and are perfectly styled on her fingers.

But with her pink strapless dress, this time I might have liked to see a statement or even delicate necklace encircling her neck — a neck that could take on any length. The dress, somewhere between blush and bubblegum, also seems to cry out for some pretty colors, whether pastels, muted tones, vivid brights or a mix with a colorful stud earring on each lobe or an ear full of studs that don’t compete with the necklace.

The black latex fingerless gloves threw me off, but the A-List actress might have been going for a tough and tender look. I have more to say about the jewelry than the gloves, but I would have gone without the edge and continued to create the elegance that suits Beckinsale so well.

The ear party and rings are still stunning, and if she were wearing a different neckline, I might have said “perfect.” But for now, let’s just say Beckinsale and her stylist know beautiful jewels when they see them.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
