The Oscars were this week, so there was much bling to discuss!
I joined in on the INDESIGN.JEWELRY team’s #OscarJewelry coverage by spotlighting seven celebs whose jewels let me down on the red carpet and explaining what I wish they’d done differently.
I also have to point out that two different stars walked the red carpet in jewels I’ve featured here on Diamond in the Library: Whoopi Goldberg in Sevan Biçakçi’s octopus hand piece and Matt Damon in Van Cleef and Arpels’ Midnight Planetarium watch.
Here are the rest of the best of this week’s Oscars Jewelry posts:
