Academy Award Jewelry

The 86th Annual Academy Awards earlier this month saw some of Hollywood's most glamorous stars dressed to the nines -- complete with incredible jewelry pieces.

The A-list actresses adorned themselves with opulent, eye-catching necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings, with values in the millions of dollars. Charlize Theron's statement necklace featured a $15 million Harry Winston Cluster Pendant with a total of 155 diamonds.  Diamonds, of course, are a perennial favorite for the glitterati of the silver screen, but this year's red carpet saw opals, turquoise, and pearls. But perhaps most noteworthy was the prevalence of gold jewelry -- Oscar himself certainly wasn't the only gold at this year's Academy Awards!

Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong'o wore gold by Fred Leighton:  a gold and diamond headband, gold and diamond earrings, a vintage gold and diamond snake bracelet, as well as several vintage rings.  Gold seems to be making a big comeback this year, much to the joy of jewelry collectors of any budget.

While most personal jewelry pieces will not cost $15 million, they're no less special to the wearer.  And to maintain these treasured collections, jewelry boxes and chests can be just as fantastic.  A luxurious jewelry box can be a standing armoire type with necklace swing sides, or a more modest dresser top, to match any jewelry collection size, and jewelry type.  If security is paramount, partially or fully locking boxes will fit the bill, or (in the case of Ms. Theron?) a jewelry safe may be needed!
