Jewels are becoming multi-taskers. Necklaces double (and triple) as bracelets, and interchangeable earrings can shed a tier in no time. To that end, brooches and strands are aiming higher—for the hair—to perch atop the crowns of famous heads everywhere.
The goal of the oversize pendant is clear: It wants your attention. And celebrities are heeding its command. In saucer-size discs and tassel-laden masses, large pendants clamor for the spotlight and sometimes nab it, leaving the star to serve as the backdrop.
Colored jewels are lighting up awards shows in a rich range of vibrant tones. Sapphires, citrines, garnets…name a stone, and it’s adorning America’s biggest stars. But diamonds needn’t worry—they have supporting roles as pavé.
