The Oscars took place on the 27th February 2011 and the stars came out in true star style. So many celebrities where dress up in this years must have looks including costume jewellery to kill for. The red carpet was full of an array of colours and we have some of our best picked dresses and styles here.

So on of our favourites was Gwenyth Paltrow in Calvin Klein dress and Louis Vuitton brooch and earrings.  The dress was stunning on her swvelt figurs, but even more so the brooch and earrings really accentuated the whole outfit. The brooch had beautiful coloured stones and the earrings where just as stunning. We also loved Scarlett Johannson in a dark purple lace dress by Dolce & Gabbanna with a beautiful colourful cocktail ring. Statement jewellery seemed to be a real trend this year with one piece that really stood out like a cocktail ring or a brooch or beautiful statement earrings. We also loved the understated style of  Michelle Williams in a Chanel dress and Harry Winston diamond earrings. You can get the same earrings for half the price, the small swarovski crystal earrings.

We cant wait for the rest of the awards to take place this year to see what the stars are going to wear to them. Keep up to date on all the awards ceremonies this year on our blog.

Costume jewellery for 2010

Costume jewellery is generally a timeless piece of jewellery that can essentially last for a very long time if taken care of properly. But just like any other fashion accessory costume jewellery that is worn in any particular season can be dictated by what is in fashion at the time.

Costume jewellery for 2010 looks like it is going to be very much statement costume jewellery. This means that it is large overstated jewellery that is a statement piece. So this could be chandelier earrings, which are statement earrings or it could be a statement bracelet, like the jet set in crystal bracelet. The most popular piece of fashion accessory at the moment is hair accessories. This has been made so much more popular with celebrities like Cheryl Cole wearing statement hair band to X factor.

The costume jewellery you decide to wear this coming year is not only dictated by what’s in fashion, but also what your own personal style is so add your own style of costume jewellery to whatever you decide to wear this year.

Fashion jewellery online

Fashion jewellery is different to costume jewellery in that fashion jewellery is jewellery that is jewellery that follows the current trends that are seen on the high street and catwalks. This type of jewellery is forever changing and depends on what designers feel is the in thing for fashion jewellery at that particular time.

So fashion jewellery includes statement cocktail rings, neckline necklaces and chandelier earrings. It also includes bangles, cuff bracelets and wooden bracelets. Fashion jewellery at the moment is still following the oversized jewellery trend, as well as stacking bangles or cocktail rings.

Fashion jewellery also includes designer jewellery like Pilgrim Jewellery, Mikey jewellery, and yours truly, Shefaly Jewellery!

Crystal Brooches

Everyone’s talking about large cocktail rings, statement costume jewellery and hair accessories, but there’s one accessory we here at the House of Jewels love and that’s brooches. We can’t get enough of brooches and what you can wear them with, or without!

Crystal brooches are a must have accessory. A colourful crystal brooch can be pinned to the lapel of your coat to make it look stunning. Or how about wearing a scarf, a real must have accessory for this season, and putting an eye-catching brooch at the end of it?

Many brooches can also be worn as a pendant on a necklace as they have a loop on where a necklace can be threaded through. This can be a dazzling statement jewellery piece. Or even wear it as a hair accessory which can look so dramatic.

Costume jewellery for weddings abroad

Whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid or a guest attending a wedding abroad, you really should consider your costume jewellery as carefully as you would chose your outfit.

Things to consider when choosing your costume jewellery includes most importantly the weather in the country you will be visiting. If it’s a hot country, your costume jewellery should really stay as light as possible. So don’t layer on loads or costume jewellery that might make you all agitated. Try a statement piece of costume jewellery instead like a cocktail ring or statement earrings

Finally and most importantly consider the theme of the wedding. If it’s very simple then go for simple costume jewellery; if it’s got for example a Las Vegas themed wedding or an Asian themed wedding go for more elaborate costume jewellery.

Statement costume jewellery

This year’s trend is statement costume jewellery. Statement costume jewellery are items of jewellery that are large pieces of costume jewellery and only one or two pieces are worn.

So example of statement costume jewellery could include a large cocktail ring like the Purple Crystal Bloom Cocktail ring. Or how about a statement bracelet, like the black hematite cuff bracelet. Another idea is to mix in a statement necklace like the Green Chic necklace with a stunning piece of hair jewellery.

Statement jewellery is all the rage this year, and is so the trend of choice for designers like YSL and Dior, so follow this trend by wearing statement costume jewellery.
