On the fall/winter couture and ready-to-wear runways, shimmering silver and steely platinum tones shone brightly in everything from suits to gowns. This trend is a perfect segue into the silver and white metal trends of the past couple of seasons. Jewelry designers combine textural interest with diamonds to create an almost metallic-like finish to their pieces. This look is one of casual chic with a nod to unexpected cuts of diamonds and tactile details.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Cleaning House for a New Generation

At Komara Jewelers in Canfield, Ohio, Wilkerson handled all the aspects of its retirement sale just as owner Bob Komara’s children took over day-to-day operations of the business. They’d used other companies before, says Brianna Komara-Pridon, but they didn’t compare. “If we had used Wilkerson then, it would have been so much better.”

2019 Golden Globes Feature Dramatic Jewelry Looks You Can Adapt for Yourself

A-list actresses wore looks that can translate into everyday life.

Published

on

THE 76TH GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS kicked off the awards season with a dazzling dose glamour in dramatic jewelry that shone brightly. Diamonds dominated the evening in some of the most awe-inspiring necklaces we have seen in seasons, such as the Tiffany & Co. stunner that Lady Gaga wore and the antique, vintage and inspired styles seen on Dakota Fanning, Isla Fisher, Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh.

Sure, we all need one stunning diamond necklace. But unless we need to be black-tie-ready on a regular basis or plan on attending red carpet events throughout the season, owning one of these pieces might be out of step with our lifestyles.

The other trends of the evening are more easily adaptable to what we can incorporate into our own jewelry wardrobes and can translate more easily into pieces we can buy, own and wear.

If you are like me, you might have watched the show and started longing for a pair of earrings that are lightweight yet are streamlined, linear and full of movement. We might choose a pair with less carat-weight, but these styles are definitely inspiring and are perfect when spring rolls around. They can work with everything from tanks and T-shirts to flirty or more sophisticated dresses. Here are some of our favorites that A-list actresses wore:

You might also prefer your bracelets piled on and climbing up your wrist. I know I do. We might not be able to create a blinged-out diamond story like these celebrities, but we can start our stack with a bangle, an Art Deco-inspired line bracelet or a wide cuff and then add to them when we can. Here are some of the looks that made my jaw drop. Once again, these are styles that go with almost any look in your wardrobe as long as you don’t allow your own sparkle to be outshined by your jewels.

MANY OF THE STYLE-SETTING actresses at the 70th Prime Time Emmys appeared in the jewelry accessory that has been dominating the red carpet for the past few seasons. Earrings!

Venice Film Festival’s stars twinkled on the red carpet in the city of gondolas and romance. One of the more wearable trends we saw is front-facing hoops, some of which climb up the ear almost like a wave while others simply rest on the front. We see them in a variety of incarnations, from diamond sparklers to those set with pearls or colored stones. It’s a trend that continues to grow and create plenty of hoopla.
