If you live in a warmer climate, maybe you have a small outside holiday get-together planned. Or maybe you are going to spend time with loved ones who you have been with since the pandemic first started. You might be planning a Thanksgiving or holiday celebration via Zoom. Some of you might be thinking of a romantic dinner for two or a night watching old movies featuring Hollywood screen sirens dressed in diamonds and pajamas. That would be something that I would do to celebrate Christmas or ring in the New Year. In any of these cases where safety and social distancing takes precedence, you can still invest in those dramatic jewels — the bold and the beautiful — the type of jewels akin to what A-listers wear on the red carpet.
Here are six pieces that are red carpet worthy and will also take you well beyond the holidays. Many of the jewels were inspired by what we had seen in the during pre-COVID red carpet events and some that we even saw at 2020 The Venice Film Festival which was held outside while social distancing; others at the 2020 Emmy Awards when the stars were shining in their brightest at home.
Diamond necklaces and earrings were glittering on stars like Zendaya and Jennifer Anniston at The Emmy Awards. While Issa Rae wore a wide diamond ring. All who showed up at the Venice Film Festival wore diamonds Cate Blanchett was particularly inspiring in a handful of diamond rings on one day and diamond huggies on another day of the festival.
These are all jewels that are timely yet enduring and are the type of diamond pieces that you real women can wear like you and me.
