2011 Academy Awards Diamond Delights
The Academy Awards red carpet is where some of the most famous celebrities in the word unveil some of the most famous diamond jewelries in the word to the public, and this year was no different. With stars and starlets clad in tuxes and designer gowns and bejeweled from head to toe, the red carpet entrance was quite a site to see.
This year, the clear diamond stars of the red carpet were brunette Beauty Anne Hathaway, red head Amy Adams and graying Helen Mirren, all three of whom who turned countless heads with their stunning selection of diamond accessories.
Anne Hathaway wowed onlookers when she sauntered down the red carpet a deep red, strapless, vintage dress designed by Valentino and posed on the red carpet for a photo op with Valentino himself.
To ornament her exposed neckline Hathaway chose a 10$ million Tiffany Lucida Star Diamond necklace, set with a total of 94 carats of diamonds. She paired the necklace with 10-carat diamond earrings, also from Tiffany, valued at $60,000 and a 5ct diamond ring, valued at $213,000.
Amy Adams chose a dazzling deep midnight blue L’Wren Scott sequined gown to compliment her fair skin. She paired the dress with an emerald and pearl necklace and a stunning Cartier platinum houte joaillarie secret watch bracelet set with several rows of colorless diamonds and featuring a large carved emerald watch face in the center. The bracelet is valued at a whopping $1.025 million.
Helen Mirren was nearly all Cartier, wearing a form-fitting silk gray gown designed by Vivienne Westwood in collaboration with Cartier jewels. She complimented the classic shape and color of the dress with a vintage platinum necklace from 1907 that was set with pearls and diamonds, and a large platinum and diamond bracelet from Cartier’s Archive Museum Collection.
