83rd Academy Awards bring out the best in diamond jewellery



The 83rd Academy Awards, or the Oscars as they are more commonly known, predictably brought out the best in the world’s diamonds and gemstones. The best actresses on the globe modelled all sorts of jewellery, particularly diamond dress rings, many of which are available here at Mad About Diamonds.

Diamond dress rings out in force at the Oscars...

The ceremony, in which Colin Firth wiped the floor with his competitors following his performance in the King’s Speech, saw an array of cocktail rings, emerald jewellery and beautiful earrings as everybody dressed to impress. Again, many of the designs on display at the Oscars can be found at this very website.

Firth was accompanied by wife Livia, who wore jewellery made from fair-trade and fair -mined gold, set with ethically sourced aquamarine gemstones from designer Anna Loucah. She said; “More and more actresses seem to be championing the cause and I think having one-wear jewellery made from ethically sourced materials on the red carpet sends out a really positive message.”

Sapphires to take over traditional diamonds?

In a survey done by ‘Bride to Be Cost of Love’, the popularity of sapphires has more than doubled since 2008. Kate Middleton’s choice of diamond engagement ring is thought to drive this trend yet further in the coming months.

When Charles and Diana married in 1981, the very same ring sparked a very similar change in the market as brides to be looked to emulate the Royals.

Young engagement ring buyers are also going for white gold engagement rings and princess cut diamond engagement rings and the price range for these rings is currently in £3,500 to £10,000 bracket.
