Angelina Jolie was the celebrity vehicle for some amazing jewels on Oscar night 2012. I know that her leg got all the attention, but really, I couldn’t focus on anything but the sparkle.
The earrings were pretty amazing, with round brilliant diamonds set into 8 prong settings, with cushion cut diamonds dangling immediately below, 20 carats total weight.
Speaking of cushion shape diamonds…here’s a close up of the spectacular 15 carat ring Angelina Jolie was wearing that night. Although it is huge, the simple bezel setting makes it very elegant.
My favorite Neil Lane jewels of the night? The real stars are the matching pair of Deco style brooches pinned at the back of Angelina’s waist. I love innovative ways to wear classic jewelry, and this is in my Top Ten!
Because you need a close up of the spectacular brooches.
Neil Lane Jewels on Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Octavia Spencer
Kristen Wiig was decked out in two wide diamond and platinum bracelets; a diamond, emerald, ruby and platinum cocktail ring; diamond and platinum eternity bands; and diamond and platinum chandelier earrings. I especially loved the luscious ring in gold (she mixed her metals well).
Maya Rudolph was wearing Neil Lane diamond and platinum bracelets, diamond and platinum cluster earrings, and a diamond and platinum cocktail ring with her embellished dress.
A radiant Octavia Spencer was wearing one of my favorite pairs of earrings for the 2012 Oscars, 20 carat diamond briolette and platinum chandelier earrings plus a large diamond and platinum cocktail ring.
Loved the old Hollywood glamour at the 2012 Oscars. May the sparkle stay with you until the next awards season…
