Beads for the Red Carpet

Vanessa Hudgens recently sported a beaded necklace on the cover on Instyle magazine’s March issue (more of this later). The look is in keeping with the current trend of V-necks- Emma Stone attended the Louis Vuitton fall 2011 runway show at the Fashion Week in a printed wrap dress and Angelina Jolie graced the red carpet at Cannes in an elegant V-necked Salvatore Ferragamo number.

Coming back to the beaded necklace Hudgens wore- although this was made up of resin beads there can be many variations to the look, feel and color of the same piece of jewelry. Blue tones can be subtly matched by a necklace made from sapphire roundel beads. Roundel beads are slightly flattened at the pierced ends and could be faceted or smooth.

To pull off a sophisticated evening look choose ruby bead jewelry either in the form of a necklace made of ruby strands or tassel earrings made from tiny ruby beads. Tassel earrings like the ones Natalie Portman wore to the Oscars are all the rage this season. The famous wine-colored pair featured rubellite tourmaline and rose-cut diamonds, but you can get the same look by opting for ruby beads. Ruby cabs or cabochons to be more precise are often set in rings and such rings are a simple way to spice up any outfit. A case in example the 6.29 ct. Burma ruby that sold for $1.32 million at Doyle New York’s Important Estate Jewelry auction on April 13. The ruby ring by Cartier sold for more than $200,000 per carat, making it one of the highest prices per carat ever achieved for a ruby at auction. The ring was the center-piece of Alice Appleton Hay’s jewelry collection, which was offered in a special section of the auction. Cabochon or beads bi g and small- here's your chance to create your own red carpet moment with these beauties.
