Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers Reviews Top Award Show Trends

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

The celebrity style watchers at San Diego’s Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers were on hand to spot the latest in jewelry trends at this year’s award shows. Jewelry handily beat out the dresses for attention on the red carpet, with styles including Art Deco, gemstone statement pieces, and yellow gold.

Statement dangle earrings were prominent; including the dazzling Art Deco inspired Neil Lane platinum creations worn by Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence. Adorned with onyx, black diamonds, jade and coral, the earrings were paired with stacked bracelets and rings that totaled an impressive $ 2.5 million in value.

Lawrence’s look matches these 18k white and rose gold dangle earrings set with coral and jadeite that are currently available in Leo Hamel’s San Diego showroom. Similarly styled but more affordably priced, and featuring 2.20 carats of diamonds, these earrings will make anyone feel like a movie star.

Amongst the many gemstones gliding down the Golden Globes red carpet, turquoise made a commanding appearance as one of the colors to watch in jewelry this year. Television’s vixen Sofia Vergara sported a fashion-forward turquoise and diamond choker by Lorraine Schwartz that quickly became the talked-about jewelry piece of the night. At the SAG Awards, she donned a show-stopping intricate Victorian necklace by Amrapoli adorned with rose cut diamonds and emeralds, paired with Victorian rose cut diamond teardrop earrings and a rose cut diamond ring.

Following the turquoise trend, actress Emma Roberts added a great splash of color to her classic Lanvin black dress with beautifully shaped turquoise chandelier earrings by Neil Lane. Roberts also debuted her new engagement ring—a reported three-carat round cut diamond encompassed by a diamond halo and set in rose gold.

Actress Jessica Chastin sported a large platinum and double-layered Bulgari necklace dating back to as early as 1930. Choosing to forego earrings, she paired the lovely look with a matching diamond ring.

These red-carpet looks confirmed the oversized necklace trend that has continued from 2013 into the New Year, as well as the ongoing love affair with vintage and antique pieces. Vintage jewelry encompasses a wide range of styles, making it easy for anyone to flaunt their flair for fashion. Emulators can find the perfect piece to personify these trendy styles among the ever-changing selection of vintage and new jewelry on display in Leo Hamel’s San Diego showroom.
