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.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come back from their honeymoon ready for their first official engagement that took place today at Buckingham Palace where they met the Obamas. But Kate is a true style icon now and as we saw she wore high street from top to toe. Her dress was from Reiss and shoes from LK Bennett.

But what about her costume jewellery? We havnet heard much in terms of where her necklace is from. She wore a statement gold necklace and carried a small black clutch handbag from Anya Hindmarch. These two fashion accessories also make her a favourite amongst us commoners as they are piece of costume jewellery and a clutch handbag that is easily affordable by most of us.

We love Kate Middleton here at The House of Jewels as she has remained grounded with her style even though she is a Royal now. Cant wait to see what else she wears in the years to come.

Bridal handbags

Handbags are a great fashion accessory but it’s even more great and gorgeous as an accessory on your wedding day. Bridal handbags can accentuate your costume jewellery as well as your stunning wedding dress so chose your bridal handbag with care and attention.

I guess the bridal handbag you decide to go for depends mainly on your dress and your costume jewellery as this is what you are going to see on your big day. You could also take into account your shoes as well if you are really paying attention to detail. You could go for an ivory bridal handbag if your dress is ivory in colour and your bridal handbag could be covered in stunning crystals if you have crystal costume jewellery.

Or you could hold a white bridal handbag if you have a pure white dress. This would lo do fabulous and really create a finished look to your entire outfit. For those of you going for an alternative, contemporary look go for a red evening handbag or a black evening handbag to stun all your guests!

What even better, is that there are bargains to be found! You can find them to be much cheaper then in the highestreet! Finally, you can also be sure to turn up to that party, and the lady next to you not having the same handbag from the highstreet! (try ordering from an overseas website for the unique touch!)

Bridal handbags

Handbags are a great way to accessorise your outfit, especially when it comes to bridal handbags for your big wedding day. Bridal handbags are as essential as costume jewellery or hair accessories on your big day.

Bridal handbags come in many different styles, shapes and colours, choosing your bridal handbag is all up to personal choice and obviously what your dress and your costume jewellery looks like. So if you have an ivory dress you could go for a stunning gorgeous ivory handbag.  How gorgeous would it look with your stunning costume jewellery!

Whatever fashion accessory, costume jewellery or bridal handbag you chose, just wear it with style and you are bound to look a million dollars on your big day!


Evening handbags can be a really sexy addition to any outfit and can finish your look off in true style, especially if the colour is matched to your costume jewellery. There are many types of evening handbags and the one you choose really depends on what sort of look you are going for and what type of costume jewellery or wedding jewellery you are wearing.

The perfect evening handbag for a night out to a club or bar would be something that’s quiet demure and not too imposing. So you can wear a pair of jeans and a top and finish the look off with a great black clutch bag or a gorgeous silver handbag

But because evening handbags are so versatile the same hand bag can be worn if you are going to a Christmas party or to a ball.  If you decide to wear a little black dress to such an occasion a colourful handbag can really look fabulous, especially if matched to your costume jewellery.

Finally, don’t forget your bridal handbag. For your wedding you would most probably want a white, cream or ivory handbag. Or for the contemporary bride, why not try matching your wedding handbag to your costume jewellery and go for something with colour, like a gold handbag?
