on the red carpet: GEM edition

although most of the focus of the ACADEMY AWARDS red carpet is on fancy fabrics and glamorous draping, i was most taken by the sparkle of the stones on the stars.  here are some of the most dazzling jewels of the night!

penelope cruz: CHOPARD platinum necklace with 56 total carat weight pear shaped diamonds, platinum cluster earrings with 15 total carat weight diamonds and a platinum bracelet with 43 total carat weight fancy shaped diamonds

tina fey: BULGARI platinum earrings with 47.36 total carat weight oval sapphires, 2.94 total carat weight multi-shaped emeralds and a platinum ring with 15.10 total carat weight sapphires, 3.60 total carat weight emeralds and 0.66 total carat weight baguette diamonds

viola davis: LORRAINE SCHWARTZ emerald earrings with pave filigree and diamond cuff

gwyneth paltrow: ANNA HU HAUTE JOAILLERIE 163 total carat weight rose cut diamond cuff {2,368 total diamonds!!} with D color and VVS clarity {WOWWWW} and a pair of HU rings.

jessica chastian: HARRY WINSTON pear shaped fancy yellow diamond drop earrings, radiant cut fancy yellow diamond solitaire ring and fancy yellow diamond bangles - reportedly totaling more that 2 million dollars!

i was totally in love with the amount of WHITE we saw on the red carpet last night -- i was hoping for more pastels {um, kind of obsessing over pinks/yellows right now} but nonetheless it was a great show. my ultimate favorite had to be jessica chastain though -- so perfect. {and the MAYJOR jewels she had on just sealed the deal right up}....big love for all my red heads :) hope everyone had a wonderful OSCAR-day!! x

a few months back i had the pleasure to sit down with katey brunini of k brunini jewels for a little chat and ever since i have not been able to get the amazingly unusual pieces out of my mind.  inspired by travels around the globe and growing up in san diego, she combines precious metals and gems to create organic silhouettes that hug the body wonderfully.  definitely a designer to watch!!
