The Jewelry Insider

February 14, 2011

While the whole “Lady Gaga arriving in a big egg” stunt felt a little (um) tired to me, the jewelry fashion was refreshingly fun at the 2011 Grammy Awards, with huge earrings, creative cuffs, statement rings, yellow gold and menfolk in layered looks ruling the night in the trend department.

Here are a few highlights to get the jewelry juices flowing…

I FINALLY had a 2011 lower-jaw-drop moment when I spotted this crazy cuff on Glee diva, Lea Michele. It’s by red carpet staple, Lorraine Schwartz, who is also responsible for my second favorite look of the night:

this yellow gold and diamond serpent cuff on Kim Kardashian.Yay!

I also have to applaud Miley Cyrus and Ciara for the winning the “More Is More” award. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so starved for over-the-top jewelry looks this year, but I was happy to see this much sparkle on these young stars.


Big earring looks dusted the sparkling shoulders of everyone from Cyndi Lauper to Snooki:







And as for the fellas? The usual suspects disappointed (Lil Wayne, Diddy) but Seal, Lenny Kravitz and Adam Lambert all rocked the layered necklace look that won the approval of the Twitter Crew (click here to review our fun-filled chat).


With so many folks getting in touch with their inner wacky (Gwenyth? What are you smoking, sister?) I’m sure the Oscars are going to feel like a quaint evening sipping tea by comparison. But I’m ready. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is a jewelry wasteland so far…. And I’m starving for more!

    The Grammys were the perfect showcase for Statement Jewelry! Obviously some stars are trend setters and others are influenced by trends but I wonder how much the stars are influenced by the designers themselves (receiving some promotional benefit). Do you think that plays into what they choose to wear to the big show?

    I’m wondering how G. Paltrow reached her hot pink feather earring decision – for some reason I don’t see her going there on her own.

    Overall, though, I think stars have relationships with certain designers and are happy to bling it out to give them good press. Especially Kim Kardashian and Lorraine Schwartz.

    I think the music set deserves some credit for bold fashion choices. There were a lot of “love it or hate it” fashions last night. I am so sick of diamond stud earring on actors lately. Take some chances, people! I raise my glass to the Grammy’s greats for pushing the envelope. Hear, hear!

    My vinage couture ring was placed on Lia Roman and appeared in the NY Times Fashion & Style section. We also accessorized Japan’s designated Red Carpet Reporter. Please tell me where I may send the photos for you to review. Regards, Margaret Rowe,
