Golden Globes 2012 Costume Jewellery

At last nights Golden Globe Awards the stars came out in style in their gorgeous gowns and costume jewellery. But there was one thing in common, that there was a minimal amount of costume jewellery. The actresses were wearing stunning gowns and so over accessorizing the gowns would be an instant fashion faux pas. So what jewellery did we see the stars in during this years Golden Globes?

Intricate bracelets, bright rings, large earrings and statement necklaces were the accessories of choice at the Globes. The looks we saw on the red carpet can be recreated without having to spend all that the stars do on their costume jewellery. So you could buy the Crystal Goddess earrings to get Jessica Albas look and add the crystal beauty bracelet to finish the look off. You have plenty of options when you are looking for statement costume jewellery . You can even just opt for a statement cocktail ring which will really add elegance to any outfit.

Statement jewellery is still a current trend, but any costume jewellery when kept minimal can make you look like one of the stars on the red carpet, and add a stunning handbag to really finish your star style look off.

Red costume jewellery for Christmas

Christmas is well and truely only 10 weeks and 2 days away- how exciting! So all you fashionistas and early shoppers are ready to buy your costume jewellery for the christmas parties and the costume jewellery gifts for all those who you cherish the most. Costume jewellery is a great accessory for Christmas and this Christmas’s costume jewellery colour has to be red costume jewellery.

Bold colours are very much in this season, espcially block colouring, and red is the must have seasons colour to have in your wardrobe and your fashion jewellery. Red is not only a great bold colour of choice but is also a very seasonal colour. Red costume jewellery can match more or less any outfit whether you are going for a little black dress or a colourful outfit. Even as a costume jewellery present it looks amazing when you give colourful costume jewellery rather than plain crystal costume jewellery as it looks as though you have given it some serious thought.

However if you do feel red costume jewellery is not really your colour when it comes to costume jewellery, or you dont think red costume jewellery is a great present for any of your loved ones, you can always opt for black costume jewellery or crystal costume jewellery.
