Oscars 2010: Bold Bracelets


This year’s Oscars night was spent on Twitter, tweeting live with some fellow jewelry bloggers.  I was anticipating some great jewelry with every celebrity that walked the red carpet, while my sister was eager to find worst/best dressed of the night over at FNL.  It was truly fashion vs. jewelry at our house.  All in all, I found that Oscars 2010 was all about the small, intricate earrings and bold, statement-making (often stacked) bracelet trends.  I predicted before that this year’s biggest jewelry trend would be bold bracelets–but it was the post I did three days before the Oscars, featuring Chanel’s tattoo bracelets which ended up actually being on the red carpet!  Here are my favorite Oscars’ jewelry looks, with my absolute favorite being Mariska Hargitay.


Closeup of Mariska Hargitay‘s bold stack of bracelets.  Each compliments the other so well!  Love how the sapphires tie in to the dress color.


Sarah Jessica Parker‘s bold bracelets–can you spot the Chanel bracelet tattoos? The jewels provided by Fred Leighton include: a 1950’s diamond swirl bracelet, in platinum, a cognac diamond flexible bracelet in 18k gold, a rose-cut diamond bracelet in platinum, and a sapphire and diamond wave bangle bracelet in 18k gold.


Amanda Seyfried had a nice stack on her right wrist–all of which were designed by Lorraine Schwartz. Brown, Champagne and Mint Diamond Geometric bracelets, 250 carats total!


Lastly, Maggie Gyllenhaal doing the bold bracelet trend. She makes a statement without stacking–simply one 1920s platinum and diamond bracelet featuring a gorgeous cabochon emerald, and sapphires from Fred Leighton. Her other wrist had another Fred Leighton bracelet that was circa 1940s and done in 18k yellow gold. She shows here how you can easily mix platinum and yellow gold.
