Chic, Custom Diamonds Drench the Red Carpet at the Oscars!

Unprecedented Diamond Sophistication Rules During the Most Dazzling Event in Oscar History

Hollywood, February 27, 2005 - It was all about custom designs, major statement jewellery and the lucky Diamond Right Hand Ring. Oscar winner Hilary Swank nabbed her second Best Actress Academy Award this evening while wearing a Diamond Right Hand Ring. She joins a growing number of actresses who win when wearing a Diamond Right Hand Ring, including Oscar winners Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger and Jennifer Connelly.

Hilary's winning streak began back in January when she wore a Diamond Right Hand Ring for the Golden Globes and again at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in February.

Stars such as Kate Winslet and Halle Berry started their Oscar looks by collaborating with jewelers to design one-of-s-kind diamond jewellery. Kate worked extensively with favorite Hollywood jeweller Neil Lane to create a diamond look from head to toe, designing diamond S-clips for her hair, two diamond clips to adorn the straps of her dress, and a pair of dramatic diamond drop earrings. Halle and Lorraine Schwartz crafted brown diamond briolette drop earrings just for the gorgeous actress.

The Diamond theme also proved true on Hollywood's leading men, with Don Cheadle, Chris Rock, Morgan Freeman, and Samuel L. Jackson choosing sophisticated diamond accessories to accent their Oscar ensembles. There were no fashion "don't's" with diamond stud buttons (as seen on Oscar winner Morgan Freeman), diamond lapel jewellery, and diamond cufflinks.

Trends included statement earrings, large or small, proving that these wasn't only one way to work the carpet in diamonds. Whether modern, vintage linear or chandelier these styles were all a part of the growing trend in showcasing bold earrings. Also sighted at the Awards were the empowering Diamond Right Hand Ring, Hair Jewellery worn in the form of tiaras, headbands or brooches, Bracelets worn en masse and large, powerful Necklaces.
