Here is part two of my wrap-up of the awards season. I love watching them all! Yesterday I offered my thoughts on The Golden Globes, and here’s my low-down on The Grammy’s. Check back tomorrow for the finale: The Oscars.
I wondered what would be happening style-wise at the Grammy’s after the gals were put on notice to show a bit less skin than in years past. Style memo notwithstanding, the women of the Grammy’s brought it strong with gorgeous looks with some rock star edge.
Snake and serpent motifs were a noteworthy trend, adorning Nicole Kidman, Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Florence Welch (whose jewels far outshone her not-so-jolly green dress). The twisting diamond crusted snake cuff of Rihanna’s was both elegant and edgy. I have already seen this look to trickling down from the runway to ladies about town.
And there were rings, lots and lots of rings. Some wore numerous rings on multiple fingers (see Rihanna, again), while others wore larger statements rings, such as Faith Hill’s stunning sapphire piece and Kelly Roland’s fabulous emerald ring.
Not to be left out, wrists got lots of attention with cuffs and bangles. Beyonce’s matching Lorraine Schwartz cuffs had a bit of a Wonder Woman vibe but offered beautiful symmetry in contrast to her asymmetrical jumpsuit. While Jennifer Lopez mixed a bold gold cuff with gorgeous Norman Silverman bangles.
Cleaning and Care How-To: Gemstones such as emeralds, sapphires, amethysts and more, in all their gorgeous glory, require a little extra TLC. Because they are softer than diamonds, I recommend cleaning them with a gentle cleaning formulary especially formulated for delicate jewelry (no ammonia or strong solvents). A quick soak and buff with a polishing cloth will keep your jewelry runway-ready. And it is best to save your gemstone pieces for activities where they can’t be chipped or damaged by exposure to chemicals. So wear them for a hot date, an important business meeting or a girls’ night out, but keep them tucked in a jewelry box or pouch when you are swimming, exercising, cleaning or doing cartwheels with the kids.
