I stumbled across a blog piece last week in Jewelry Insider that notes a trend I’ve noticed as well: the “less is more” look. Perhaps its the economy or the warmer temperatures or the need for celebrities to not appear overly flashy or indulgent, but touches of jewelry seem to the way to go.
Take Julia Roberts at her Larry Towne premiere in LA this week. Nevermind the on-trend menswear look (which I find ‘safe’ and ‘snore-worthy’) – but take a gander at the jewelry choice. Simple diamond studs and a jade wrap necklace. Easy. Breezy. Beautiful.
Or how about Jenna Elfman at the same event? Just a splash of a yellow gold drop earring and she’s good to go.
And Katie Holmes sported similar ‘tiny treasure’ style at the LA Film Festival in small pearl earrings and a delicate yellow gold ‘S’ pendant (for daughter Suri, I suppose). Sweet.
So while we’ve all been starved for a lower jaw-drop moment since the Cannes Film Festival over a MONTH ago – I have to admit: I’m OK with diamonds on the down-low every once in a while.
Just DON’T make it a habit, Hollywood.
