Gold is a girl’s new best friend according to Elie Saab

Gold is here to stay. And not in a subtle way either. I must be honest I am not a big fan of wearing too much gold as we had a neighbour when I was small who used to drip with gold jewellery and I always thought it was slightly kitch. But the more jewellery I am loving and wanting to buy, gold is definitely creeping in there..

Elie Saab’s pre-fall collection included major gold jewellery so your cuffs and statement necklaces are still going to be around for a while!


This may be a little hectic to wear for a drink at the pub..


I quite love this. I don’t think I will like the price tag however.


Gold and diamond earrings. Gorgeous.

The Oscars 2013 Jewellery

By now you have seen the dresses, seen the speeches and seen Jennifer Lawrence’s fall on her way to accept her award.. (Awkies – but so well handled!). Now is the time to have a look at the jewellery and wow – there were some amazing pieces! Not surprisingly, diamonds seemed to be the rock of choice and cuffs were big this year. Small drop earrings or studs with big necklaces or statement earrings seemed to be the next bet but cuffs definitely ruled this Oscars.

Jennifer Aniston work diamond bracelets and a ring that I would die for!

Renee Zellwegger piled the cuffs on in a gorgeous maroon.

And then the rings. Now you all know I have a soft spot for rings, but these were amazing.

Jennifer Hudson wore a ring with a circular design, very original. Called a Halo Ring, it was by Sutra. I’ll take two thanks,

Ok now normally I am not a matchy matchy type. But the ring just works with these amazing earrings. It is from the Murder She Wrote collection by Stephen Webster (how cool is that collections name?)

And Zoe Saldana? She wins the ring off hands down! I LOVE the fact that she is wearing more than one ring on one hand and that ring sitting above her knuckle proves that she is a rockstar. A jewellery rockstar. Top marks.

And the snake ring is also a trend at the mo (see my post about it here).

Now I must be honest, I have no idea who Samantha Barks is but this necklace was too lovely to leave out. Attention grabbing to the max.

Ditto the above with this chicky boo who arrived with Steven Spielberg. Kate Capshaw stole the show with her diamond collar, I even spotted it when the camera zoomed out during the show. Nice.

If you look carefully at Amanda Seyfried’s ears, you’ll see that these are actually cute little ear cuffs.

I know Jane Fonda looks deep in thought, don’t let that fool you – it’s all the botox. She rocked (excuse the pun) 8ct yellow diamond chandelier earrings set in 18ct yellow gold by Chopard.

Catherine Zeta Jones took my breath away. Not because she barely looks her age, but because of those earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. I want.

Jessica Chastain always brings an elemant of old Hollywood glamour in my opinion and her earrings did her justice.

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Nicole Kidman wore black and gold earrings from Fred Leighton. Not too sure about these, I must be honest.

And that’s that folks! There were many other baubles on display but I chose my favourite to show you. Think I missed any out? Let me know!
