Get the Red Carpet Look For Less

OscarsJennifer Lawrence captured the global audiences’ admiration at the 2013 Oscars with her easy going charm and grace, and she also stole the spotlight with her ensemble.

Her flowing Dior gown was perfectly matched by her simple diamond jewelry; a pair of halo drop earrings and a long diamond necklace draped over her back. For the long, thin necklace look, go for “by the yard” styles. By the yard necklaces consist of many small stones placed at spaced intervals on a thin chain, and by using as little metal as possible the stones will look as if they are floating on your neck. We have a white topaz by-the-yard necklace set in white gold that would look great paired with an elegant dress or as bridal jewelry! The same necklace is available in black gold, giving it an edgy twist. At $1100, it is a steal that will make you look like a million bucks.

For glamorous drop earrings, a la Nicole Kidman’s yellow gold filigree pair, or Amy Adam’s diamond drops, right, these are alternatives that won’t break the bank.

This pair of filigree earrings is a statement for an important night out! Wonderful detailing in brushed 22 karat yellow gold, $1300. For a more delicate look, consider these marquise shaped, natural pink diamond drop earrings, $3800 or diamond butterfly earrings, $1100.
