Red Carpet Bling – Oscars 2012


Okay so we have had a good look through what fantastic, and not so fantastic, jewellery was paraded on the red carpet at the Oscars 2012. Diamonds are still a girls best friend, as adorned by many of the top stars, but we are also happy to report that the stunning Emerald gemstone had its fair share of red carpet space. Emeralds are fantastic as a complimentary colour to purples, and golds. The stars really wore it well this year and we can feel its growing momentum as the gemstone of choice. Another hot trend seems to be the drop / chandelier earrings, they are of course the perfect match for a glamorous ballgown so we see exactly why they are such a popular choice.


Rocks Jewellers favourite piece was worn by Cameron Diaz, this amazing emerald cut diamond line necklace was so stunning around her neck.  We love emerald cut diamonds and in this setting really outshines other more traditional line necklaces like those worn by Penelope Cruz, Missi Pyle and Michelle Williams shown below. Their neck pieces are to die for but I think Cameron’s pips them at the post.



The red carpet had some great colours showing this year both in their gowns and their jewellery. We love all these earrings, the colours are great and the emerald green really stands out. Some great choices from our stars including Berenice Bejo, Viola Davis, Virginia Madsen, Bingbing Li, Ellie Kemper and Emma Stone.



Drop, or better known as chandelier, diamond earrings were dangling from the most famous of stars at the Oscars, they were a mixture of pave set chandeliers and larger claw set diamond drop earrings. They were all fabulous but we, at Rocks Jewellers, have fallen in love with Octavia Spencers pave set diamond chandelier earrings. They have an antique/vintage feel to them that is so popular right now and the sparkle off them is unmissable. She had some competition however with stunning earrings worn by Melissa Mc Marthy, Judy Green, Jennifer Lopez, Jane Seymore, Bingbing Li, and Shailene Woodley. No shortage of bling at the Oscars this year that’s for sure.




Some other peices that we noticed that are worth a mention were diamond bracelets and cuffs worn by Viola Davis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mila Jovovich. Fabulous choices!
