5 Sparkling Pieces to Achieve Red Carpet Style

In all its glamorous glory, the Red Carpet was recently laid out in LA for the 86th Oscar Academy Awards. And what famous Red Carpet isn’t bustling with the Hollywood elites showcasing fabulous designer fashion and extravagant, sparkling jewellery? This year we were witness to elegant gowns, vibrant blues and statement embellishments.

Cate Blanchett opted for a stunning Armani Prive sleeveless nude gown featuring Swarovski crystals, generously accessorised with giant white gold opal drop earrings, a pear shaped diamond ring, and brown diamond bracelet.  She was as breath taken as we were by her attire when she won the Best Actress award for her lead role in Blue Jasmine!

Inspired by Cate Blanchett’s own statement pair, embellish your red carpet inspired attire with this stunning pair of sparkling Swarovski crystal drop earrings, crafted with mixed metal plating for a show-stopping look.

Lunita Nyong’o looked as pretty as a princess in a sky blue Prada gown with a plunging V neckline, styled with a yellow gold head band, diamond crescent shaped earrings, diamond cocktail ring, and gold bracelets. She gracefully accepted her award as the Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave.

Set with glittering cubic zirconia, we think this 9ct gold bar bangle and 9ct gold sapphire & diamond leaf earrings will add sparkling elegance to your red carpet inspired style a’la Lunita.

Supporting her fiancé Brad Pitt for his role in 12 Years a Slave, Angelina Jolie looked absolutely stunning in a sheer Elie Saab Couture gown with glistening gold embellishment and extravagant 42-carat diamond earrings that simply sparkled with elegance.

Taking inspiration from Jolie’s timeless style, we think these 9ct yellow gold & diamond drop earrings, featuring an open pear design and circle diamond cluster, are the perfect touch of feminine sophistication for your red carpet inspired look.

Following the Oscar awards, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been very hush hush about their potential wedding plans, leaving the celebrity elites guessing about when the wedding invitations might be on the way and shutting down any rumours that they were tying the knot in Paris. The loved-up couple have been dawdling over their wedding plans ever since Pitt proposed with a personally designed luxurious diamond engagement ring…we can’t wait to see what the wedding rings will look like!

If you’re seeking a bridal set that exudes extravagant glamour, then this 2 carat diamond bridal set in 18ct white gold is perfect for your special day. The triple design of baguette cut diamonds with shoulder detailing and matching wedding band showcases lavish and sparkling style.
