Online PR News – 10-April-2013 – New York – If you watched the red carpet shows prior to the Academy Awards, then you probably noticed a lot of the same things we did. Celebrities, young and old, sporting millions upon millions of dollars of fabulous jewelry! It’s fun to fantasize about what it would be like to wear a bracelet worth $1 million, or have a manicure infused with $250,000 worth of diamonds. Unfortunately, for most us, those fantasies are exactly that- fantasies!
You may not be able to wear jewelry quite as extravagant as the movie stars, but it’s still possible to look great and wear impressive pieces without spending several years (or a lifetime!) of paychecks. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the hot pieces worn on the red carpet this year, and show you some much more affordable alternatives from our own Ryan & Jolie collection.
Perhaps you noticed Anne Hathaway sporting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of platinum and diamonds, including a stunning necklace and a diamond bracelet.
Our response? How about this versatile Fashion Fantasy Cocktail Party Swarovski Crystal Necklace and a Rose Gold Glamorous Multi-Color Swarovski Crystal Bracelet. The chunky necklace makes a bold yet elegant statement, just like Hathaway’s platinum necklace. The multi-hued Swarovski crystals inset into the bracelet are a fine complementary piece for the necklace, creating a unified characteristic look. But the best part? Anne Hathaways’ necklace and bracelet combo ran about $685,000. Ryan & Jolie’s necklace and bracelet pair will only set you back $89 (with free shipping to boot)!
Or how about these diamond earrings Reese Witherspoon wore down the red carpet?
At Ryan & Jolie, we offer a similar (but certainly not similarly priced) set of earrings to give you that elegant look. Our Pearl of Wisdom Rose Gold Earrings feature a beautiful pearl artfully set within a spiral gold mount with inlaid crystals. And they cost only $26, a real bargain for the quality of workmanship put into the jewelry.
Samantha Barks of Les Mis fame showed no fear in her necklace selection, wearing a bold sunburst House of Waris pendant. At Ryan & Jolie, you can find a number of similarly bold pendant necklaces to make a statement with, including a Clear Large Faceted Swarovski Crystal Necklace and the fantastic Vintage Aegean Faceted Swarovski Crystal Necklace. These two pieces are a couple of our favorites, and regularly cost $36.00 and $40.00, respectively.
Of course, there were tons of other styles of jewelry being worn at the Oscars this year. We just didn’t have time to get to them all. But you can be sure that if it’s on the red carpet, Ryan & Jolie has something similar at much better prices! Browse around our shop at www.ryanjolie.com to find other great jewelry styles.
