Top 10 #RedCarpet Gemstone Necklaces That Made A Wave
If you haven’t recovered from the glamorous parade of high fashion jewelry from the Met Gala and the on going Cannes Film Festival, trust us, you aren’t the only one!
While we are still eyeing these gorgeous looks, something that stayed with us is how the necklaces have dominated the red carpet over the years.
Styleprer takes you on a joy ride as we #throwback travel through time and picked for you the top 10, most gorgeous colored necklaces ever worn on the Red Carpet! (choices listed below are in random order)
Scarlett Johansson looked regal at the 2015 Oscars Red Carpet when she wore an emerald green custom Atelier Versace gown with a Swarovski crystal embroidered collar. This heavily beaded, high-neck choker was actually a part of the gown’s design. The inspiration behind this design we believe was to add a ruffled/rouge element of sparkle to her over all look.
At the 2016, Baftas red carpet, Saoirse Ronan wore an 18-carat white gold High Jewelry necklace by Chopard. Her three-tier necklace of sugar-sweet coloured sapphires totalling 275cts was the most daring choice of jewelry at that night.
Keira Knightly’s beautiful bib necklace by Bulgari, a 1960 masterpiece from the Italian jeweler’s archive collection, is regarded as one of the most memorable necklaces ever! This gorgeous 18-karat gold necklace has flower like clusters centered with bold sapphire cabochon surrounded with emerald, ruby and diamonds. It was originally owned by Princess Soraya of Iran till Keira borrowed it.
A regal example of how a bold statement necklace can completely change the look of an outfit was showcased by Sophia Vergara at 2014 Golden Globes. Turquoise is a color that loves to stand out and this Lorraine Scwartz necklace was no different. The intricate detailing of turquoise flowers with greens leaves and diamond detailing and solitaires made an entire leap.
Georgina Chapman, Founder of Marchesa, dazzled in a bold royal blue floral necklace and pearl earrings from her Marchesa Eternal Collection. However we feel she could have opted for another outfit, what say ?Gerogina also wore Munnu Jewels.
We loved the look and jewelry worn by the American model Emily Ratajkowski’s at the opening night of the on-going Cannes Film Festival 2017: a high jewellery necklace from Bulgari’s Heritage collection. The magnificent medallion-style necklace dates from 1969 and is centered with a cabochon emerald along with rubies, pearls and diamonds.
Maria Menounos chose this intricately designed gorgeous emerald and diamond statement necklace by Lorraine Schwartz and looked spectacular. The teardrop emeralds placed perfectly between the small cut diamonds that are further detailed with an outline of tiny emeralds is just so perfect! We also love how she completed her look with a soft hair braid that drew more attention to her neckline.
Amy Adams dazzled at the 2009 Oscar Red Carpet in a stunning Fred Leighton 1950’s lobster bib necklace-made up of approximately 630 carats of emeralds, rubies and sapphires-that she chose to pair with her crimson Carolina Herrera dress. Matching diamond solitaires to complete her look, Amy’s ensemble is often referred to in many fashion trend articles till date!
The Van Cleef Zip Antique Colombine that Margot Robbie wore featured 150-diamonds and 300-sapphires set in 18kt gold. Like all of Van Cleef’s Zip jewels it is convertible and can be worn as a bracelet too! The masterwork took craftsmen more than 600 hours to create, and we say it was certainly worth every second.
No Guys, Rose didn’t dive down and retrieve the Heart of the Ocean at the end of Titanic! Even if she did, her necklace has some serious competition. Bella Hadid’s Bulgari necklace that featured a cushion cut 180-carat sapphire stone set with over 28 carats of pavé diamonds was a show stopper at the ongoing 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
Styleprer Tip:When choosing a statement colored necklace, we suggest opting for contrasts that compliment your outfit but not take away from it. Be bold and choose bright colors or off beat cuts and pair it with an outfit that highlights your neckline.
