Oscars Jewellery Recap: Hot Off the Red Carpet

The Academy Awards has long been a setting for not only honoring the creative and technical talents behind the year's best-loved movies, or for speculating as to who among those nominated will end up giving acceptance speeches. Though artistic accomplishment and diligent work are recognized once the ceremony has actually begun, the lead-up to the start of the show is one of the biggest parts of the event -- and one of the biggest topics of the year. It's Oscars fashion, a subject that has spawned everything from books to television shows, and if the viewers drawn by the event are any indication, it's a pretty big deal.
Each year, the Red Carpet sees scores of frocks and suits, flashbulbs and picture-perfect make-up, but it also sees some of the most extravagant jewelry in the world. From crystal bracelets to bright flower brooches, starlets and supporting screen sirens grace the crowd with pieces you'd be hard-pressed to see anywhere else, assuming of course you don't frequent any royal balls or exclusive museum exhibits.
But for the 81st Annual Academy Awards held last Sunday, many, like the Jewelry Insider were speculative about what effect, if any, the current economic slowdown would have on the night's parade of ice. While predictions ranged from the super-subdued (think wedding rings and the occasional one-carat diamond stud earrings) to the irreverently showy (nothing like a full emerald jewel bib to make the public green with envy), it seemed apparent that there was at least a social call to keep things a bit toned down. But at the Oscars, “toned down” is relative. Like the fashion itself, consisting of subtle yet elegant designs in warm and neutral colors, the Red Carpet's jewelry collection was dramatic and lovely without being overbearing.
Pearls and a sense of harmony were on call for Meryl Streep and Sophia Lauren, shown here with creamy drop earrings in matching hues:

Also standing out in the earrings department, Jessica Biel's understated yet pretty chandelier earrings in silver were a hit:

Swarovskis made many grand entrances throughout the night, and helped play up the glamour of the event with sparkle and flair without getting too flashy. Janeo's ball drop earrings, featuring stones in a rich and gorgeous palate, would have been worthy contenders, such as this pair in ochre:

Offsetting many a gown, the night's necklaces weren't afraid to come out from behind the curtain, yet remained tasteful and refined. Amanda Seyfried donned a costume jewelry piece full of swarovski crystals:

Even extraordinary belts were on show; singer Miley Cyrus' pearly, crystalline fashion belt set the theme for her scalloped dress:

Subdued yet substantial - this year's Oscars ceremony showed that this rare but magical combination is quite possible - and can be quite pretty, too.
