Van Cleef & Arpels Earrings for Christmas

For all-out fabulousness, I always head to Cartier jewelry. You won’t find a single sedate jewel in Lydia’s cabinet of curiosities. Instead, you will find a fantastical selection of gift ideas, including these shoulder-grazers. The dragonflies’ wings have been hand-painted in enamel, mirroring the spectacular colour-changing iridescence found in nature, with electric-green tsavorites mixed with sapphires making up the body, and emeralds for eyes.

When Van Cleef & Arpels launched its Alhambra high jewellery collection last year, it was an instant sensation. Inspired by the great couture gowns designed by Van Cleef & Arpels, the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry mimicked the draping, pleating and gathering of luxurious fabrics, and it wasn’t long before a diffusion line followed. These Cheap Van Cleef & Arpels earrings are as delicate as lace, with the white gold following the contours of the diamonds, creating a pretty scalloped edge.

If you haven’t yet visited Bvlgari’s five-storey townhouse on London’s exclusive Mount Street, it’s gift inspiration heaven. These Wings of Desire are from Jessica’s first jewellery collection, Messenger of Gods. There have been many interpretations of these Bvlgari b.zero1 earrings – one of Jessica’s best-known designs – but these are my favourite, with the graduated diamonds set into blacked white gold, giving them the patina of an antique jewel.

Live the fairy tale in these magical Elfen Ear Wings from Paris’s Van Cleef & Arpels, which have a hint of the Galadriel about them. Held in place by a stud fastening half way up the wing, white diamonds swoop up the lobe, set in rose gold. Sold individually, Van Cleef & Arpels has an area of its Chelsea boutique devoted to Stud Club – a colourful collection of single 18k Rose Gold Cartier Love earrings that allows you to get the mix-and-match look that is a huge trend right now.

Night of the necklace at the Golden Globes

This year’s awards season began with a bejeweled bang at the Golden Globes last night in Hollywood. A treat for red Cartier jewelry fans everywhere, variety was the name of the game on a night that included everything from classic diamonds and pearls to coloured gemstones and, most attention-grabbing of all, a host of dazzling statement necklaces.

All eyes last night were on Jennifer Lawrence and not just because she won Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her role in Joy. Her cropped hair and high-neck, scarlet-red Dior gown were the perfect canvas for a large Chopard bib of glittering diamonds.

Once again proving her red carpet know-how, Jennifer Lopez channeled 1940s Hollywood in a canary-yellow Giambattista Valli gown and cape, topping them off with 200 carats of Harry Winston diamonds including a beautiful cascading drop diamond necklace and diamond wreath necklace. A yellow diamond ring and earrings completed a look that few others could carry off.

Emmy Rossum was another star who made jewelry the main focus. She sported a sleekly elegant, asymmetrical Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace with gold, an unconventional choice that was red-carpet perfection with her strapless red gown.

Leslie Mann kept things fresh and feminine with an Irene Neuwirth choker of opals, tourmalines paired with a pretty-in-pink Monique Lhuillier gown.

Presenter Olivia Wilde looked to the 1970s for her ensemble of a vintage Bulgari sautoir with carnelian intaglio and diamonds, burgundy sequin Bvlgari B.zero1 Ring Collection dress and matching eye makeup.

The fun did not stop with Cartier Panthere Pendant necklaces. Cookie from the hit show Empire doesn’t do understated and Taraji P Henson, the actress who won a Golden Globe last night for her role as the ex-con, did not disappoint in giant emerald drops from Kimberly McDonald for Gemfields.

Presenter Julianne Moore, meanwhile, sparkled in an outsized Chopard Paraiba tourmaline and titanium ring with blue Tom Ford sequins, and nominee Cate Blanchett wore a retro-style diamond bracelet from Tiffany with her ultra-feminine, fringed Givenchy Haute Couture gown.

Pearls also got their moment. Jane Fonda looked resplendent and modern in Chopard pearl earrings and dramatic high-necked gown and Zendaya was dramatic in Tahitian pearls and black diamonds from Cheap Van Cleef & Arpels Jewelry.

With so much fabulous jewelry on display, the question quite frankly is how are the Academy Awards going to top that? You’ll have stay tuned to RealGolds.com to find out.
