Just thought I'd blog this morning about the incredible jewelry worn at the 2014 Academy Awards. This year I was happy to see statement necklaces that were sorely missed last year. However, I was disappointed at the lack of colored gemstones, again! And I wished there were more colorful gowns - so many neutrals. However the metallic fabrics of gold and silver along with the embellishments were to die for! Below are a few of the ladies that I felt had on gorgeous opulent gems - and a few that I thought could have made a better choice - and of course I've given my opinion!
And the award for the BEST OF EVERYTHING goes to Cate Blanchett! She was flawless - drop dead gorgeous! The Armani gown was exquisite - but the Chopard Opal and Diamond Pendant Earrings were beyond spectacular. She also had on a beautiful brown diamond bracelet. Cate had my vote from the beginning of the red carpet coverage - and I didn't change my mind for the rest of the evening. Magnificent!

Charlize was a close second in my book. She is just one of the most beautiful women walking on this planet, seriously WOW! The Harry Winston Diamond Necklace was incredible - a mere $15 million - and perfect for her breathtaking black Dior. Did I mention D-Flawless 31ct diamond! Sophisticated, extraordinary, stunning. And when she stood next to Chris Hemsworth - say no more - best presenters ever!
