The awards season always feels like it’s working up to the grand finale: The Oscars.
This year, the Oscars harkened back to yesteryear, with many vintage styles and modern pieces recalling the golden era of Hollywood.
Of course that meant diamonds, our first BFF. Jennifer Lawrence’s diamond drop earrings and stunning diamond necklace worn down her back were almost as big a topic as her somehow charming slip on the stairs.
And one couldn’t miss the stunning Fred Leighton diamond ring adorning Kerry Washington’s index finger; a new spot to sport some gorgeous bling.
Though earrings and bracelets still dominated, there were a few more statement necklaces in the mix this year. I especially loved Jennifer Garner’s gorgeous 200 carat Neil Lane necklace as she beamed at her Best Picture Oscar-winning hubby.
As for earnings, I loved Nicole Kidman’s ornate gilded drop earrings from Fred Leighton that so complimented her stunning dress and Catherine Zeta Jones’ dangling earrings comprised of natural colored diamonds in a mosaic-like design.
Cleaning How-To: While your diamonds may not come from a jeweler’s vault, you can keep them eye-popping with proper care and cleaning. Your rings and earrings are most likely to get gummed up through frequent wear, so exercise some caution. Remove your pieces before using lotion or hairspray, or when exercising, cooking, gardening and cleaning. When your diamond BFFs lose their sparkle, I recommend soaking them in a non-ammoniated fine jewelry cleaning formula, brushing with a soft, short brush designed for jewelry care, and drying and buffing with a professional polishing cloth.
