Jewelry, Fashion and Oscars

The Oscars are over, but the jewels that the stars kept flashing on the red carpet are still shining bright in our minds. This year, it was all about diamonds galore and statement bracelets. They were stacked and shiny and gave new meaning to arm candy. Earrings, necklaces, and rings also played supporting roles.

Here are few snippets from the Big Event:

As predicted on StyleList, Kathryn Bigelow took home the golden statue for Best Director -- and Best Picture for "The Hurt Locker," sparkling in a Edition Soir Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati titanium gown.

Kate Winslet was spotted sporting a stunning, bold necklace comprised of white and yellow diamonds. The image left us daydreaming about another spectacular piece of jewelry that rested upon her collarbone years ago: The Heart of the Ocean from Titanic.

The Sex and the City 2 star Sarah Jessica Parker paired her beautiful, butter-yellow Chanel dress with a slew of beautiful diamond bangle bracelets that added texture and interest to the couture gown.

Sandra Bullock who walked away with an Oscar for her acclaimed performance in The Blind Side, apparently, had no qualms mixing silver and gold! She wore a slinky silver and gold dress that she paired with pitch-perfect diamond stud earrings and a delicate diamond bracelet.

Maggie Gyllenhaal wore vintage Fred Leighton.

Helen Mirren wore quite the classy bling: Chopard’s oval shape diamond necklace, pear shape diamond drop earrings, and a fancy, rose cut diamond cuff.

Olivia Wilde wore a diamond bracelet set in 18k yellow gold and platinum by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co.
