At this year’s Emmy Awards, the stars came out with their best dresses-and their best jewelry. A strong trend this year was statement earrings with minimal other jewelry. Reese Witherspoon wore David Webb earrings with sapphires and baguette-cut diamonds in 18-carat white gold and platinum, with no necklace and no bracelets. Nicole Kidman was also on trend with Harry Winston pear-shaped drop earrings with 13.77 carats of diamonds. Although Kidman changed her look by including a large Harry Winston platinum link bracelet. She did not wear a necklace, and let her exquisite earrings shine through.
When celebrities wore necklaces, the looks were simple and truly elegant. Zoë Kravitz wore a simple diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. Kravitz’s dress was so vibrant and interesting that there was no need for an over the top necklace. The simple design of the Tiffany necklace did not take away attention from the dress, but still added a pop of sparkle to her look. Mandy Moore also decided to stick to a small, simple necklace. Her small strand of pink sapphires by Jennifer Meyer Jewelry added a small pop of color to her black and white dress. The necklace went with her morganite teardrop earrings also by Jennifer Meyer.
Next time you are shopping for the perfect jewelry for an elegant night out, try some statement earrings instead of a statement necklace!
