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.

Autumn Winter costume jewellery trends

Ok I know that summer has only just started (for some of us, I hasn’t even started yet!)  But there is so much talk about the Autumn Winter collections on the catwalks including costume jewellery that we thought we had to right about it.

Autumn is not long away and a lot of you fashionistas are probably thinking what is the trend for this coming season. Well, it’s very eclectic. Costume jewellery is seen on every single catwalk, and many are either keeping it to one statement costume jewellery piece or just layering on the statement pieces. So you could just be wearing a pair of chandelier earrings next season, or you could go for cuff bracelets, statement necklaces, statement rings, well anything goes really.

But remember, that when it comes to costume jewellery and other fashion accessories, it’s your own personal style that counts, so add a bit of this into the mix and you are sure to be on to a winner.


Costume jewellery isn’t just for the likes of me and you. Costume jewellery is also worn but celebrities and celebrity costume jewellery is no more dissimilar to what you and I wear. So what type of costume jewellery are the celebrities wearing at the moment?

Celebrities at the moment are sticking to the main trends in costume jewellery which is still statement costume jewellery. Statement costume jewellery can encompass all types of costume jewellery like chandelier earrings, cuff bracelets or even large cocktail rings.

Celebrities do set a trend when it comes to costume jewellery but you have to remember that they are only following what their stylist is telling them, so remember to add your own style to your costume jewellery.


Can you believe we are coming into April already? Well the fashion houses can as they have already showed their Autumn/Winter 2010-11 fashion collection including their fashion jewellery and costume jewellery lines.

What do the designers say is in store for us this Autumn/Winter 2010-11? Well there is a lot more statement jewellery, and more than anything statement necklaces and statement cocktail rings. As always these pieces of costume jewellery look fabulous with anything from work wear to that glamorous evening out.

Other statement costume jewellery pieces include statement bracelets, statement hair accessories and statement earrings.

Your costume jewellery style can come in one of three kinds, English Rose Costume Jewellery, Glamorous Princess costume jewellery or Vintage beauty Costume jewellery. Here we show you the type of fashion accessories and costume jewellery you can wear to suit your costume jewellery style.

English Rose costume jewellery would entail simple and classic designs which are encrusted with crystals and pearls, so ideally simple crystal costume jewellery or pearl costume jewellery would be ideal for your style. Try the Large pearl hair comb or the little drops of heaven set.

Glamorous princess costume jewellery would be for those who want to wow the crowd! Big dress and big costume jewellery, not shying away from statement costume jewellery or crown tiaras.
