Each year I watch the Oscars, Golden Globes, and sometimes even the Emmys. The past few years I’ve been completely disgusted by the lack of necklaces at these events. As a jeweler this deeply troubles me.
There’s never a lack of topless gowns and all that bare skin is calling out for jewelry. Something is just missing. Ladies, your neck is crying out for adornment!
Some have said that this trend is due to the economic downturn and stars are trying not to be showy. But what jewelry I do see is chock full of diamonds, emeralds, and all sorts of sparkle. So I don’t buy it.
I’d love to see this change when I watch the Oscars this year, but I’m not holding my breath. Until things change I’ll just have to take solace that at least Diane Ladd had an awesome (yet hidden) necklace on. For that I thank her.
