The Academy Awards are always a good place to get a sneak peak at this year’s upcoming beauty and fashion, and this year was no exception.
Natalie Portman wore some show-stopping tassel earrings made from rubellite and rose-cut diamonds. They’re long enough to almost brush her shoulders and match the color and sparkle of her dress perfectly. I can see earrings like these making a perfect complement to a prom dress! It wouldn’t be too difficult to create a similar look using a bead cap and silver-lined seed beads.

Jennifer Lawrence chose to complement her red dress and golden tresses with a pair of elegant dangly earrings made from platinum and yellow diamonds. It’s a classy, wearable look. Of course, for the rest of us, Jonquil and Topaz Swarovski crystals seem like a more economical option!

While Amy Adams seems to have received mixed reviews about her sequined blue dress, her jewelry is stunning. Take a look at those diamonds! I love the intricate carving on the emerald pendant and watch. The wide, multi-strand design of the watch is something that seems to be growing in popularity. It would be fun to try creating something like that with Swarovski’s XILION settings.

Reese Witherspoon wore a simple, classy black dress with a white band at the top. Her dangly emerald earrings add a pop of color to the ensemble and draw the eye to her face. It’s a great example of how jewelry creates that finishing touch to a formal gown.
