Amy Adams wore jewelry by Cartier.  A diamond necklace featuring a 33.24 carat Emerald and Cartier's Haute Joaillerie secret watch bracelet in platinum, with diamond, and a 30.75 carat carved emerald.  The watch bracelet alone is worth 1.025 million dollars!

Celine Dion wore a piece by Bulgari featuring Green Spinel and Emerald set in 14kt Yellow Gold.  This piece is from Bulgari's historical archives collection, but not my favorite.

I was unable to find who made Annette Bening's beautiful emerald earrings, but they were probably my favorite.  I love the teardrop cut of the emeralds.  The scarcity of metal work really lets the gorgeous green color pop!



Jennifer Hudson.

You can never go wrong with diamonds!  Outfitted in jewelry by Neil Lane, including 10 carat long basket earrings, three bracelets totaling over 135 carats, and a stunning 20 carat diamond ring.  She screamed Hollywood.  Glamorous, classic, stunning!

Natalie Portman.

She's young, and beautiful, but the jewelry just looks too old.  There was nothing young and fresh about the dress or the jewelry.  If this were on an older actress, I don't know if I'd feel the same way about it.  Also, I'm not really into matching the color of your jewelry to your outfit. The earrings, provided by Tiffany & Co. feature a rubellite tassel and rose-cut diamonds, are beautiful on their own, but overall: fail.
