The Primetime Emmy Awards are this Sunday, and no starlet's look will be complete without jewelry!
Michael O'Connor curates and recommends beautiful necklaces, rings, and bracelets for the A-list attendees.
toofab's Anna Kachikyan caught up with the style expert right before the busy Emmys weekend, where he shared this season's trends and what he'd like to see on the likes of "Scandal's" Kerry Washington and "Mad Men's" January Jones:
A few more tips from Michael:
1. Color is in!
We're seeing a variety of exotic gemstone colors and rare material mixes to create statement pieces. Jewelry designer Abellan New York is showcasing a ring with rubellite, turquoise, blue sapphires, pearls and diamonds. Designer Joan Park is featuring earrings with aquamarine, and green and pink tourmaline, priced at $3,000. This piece is part of The Diamonds With A Story™ Collection, based across four viewpoints shared by consumers on what they want most in diamond jewelry; origin, sustainability, color and lifestyle.
2. Pearls aren't just for grandma!
"The Jazz Age" is swinging again, thanks to "The Great Gatsby"! Designers are creating pieces that bring us back to the 1920s. Mastoloni introduced a signature black and white "Ice" necklace with cultured pearls and 30-carats of black and white diamonds, featuring a tassel of cultured pearls and white diamonds, priced at $10,500. AGTA designer Baggins shows a cocktail ring with natural color Akoya cultured pearls and diamonds, priced at $30,000. Michelle Dockery would evoke modern "Gatsby" glamor wearing these pearls. They're timeless.
3. Don't neglect the guys.
A jeweled tie bar or statement watch as a little bling to a black tux.
Seah Watches and Jewelry launched "The Astronomer" timepiece, the only watch in the world that comes with the Greek Zodiac signs replacing the hours. It's priced at $600. The Perrelet "Double Peripheral Rotor" watch features a black dial and luminous hour-markers, on a black alligator strap with white stitching, priced at $8,550. We can already envision Jon Hamm and Aaron Paul wearing these styles.
