Traci’s Fashion Tips: 2017 Academy Awards Jewelry Fashion Takeaways

Traci's Fashion Tips

While the 2017 Grammy Awards treated us to some of the best fashion of the year, it’s the Academy Awards that are known for fashion. This year was no different. Closer to home, I’ve found several shimmering original Burdeen’s Jewelry pieces that can be paired with similar fashion choices as the stars – and you won’t even have to fly out to Beverly Hills.

Check out some of our pieces of the rich and famous and remember to call me or email me at Or, if you want a more personal touch, we can set up a boutique experience at Burdeen’s Jewelry.

Let me help you make your Jewelry Wishes Come True!

Darby’s choice of hot torquoise jewelry perfectly matched her blue eyes and would also pair for Spring and Summer jeans, dresses and any white fashion choices – whether it’s a dress, shirt, whatever!

Yellow Gold is so majestic when paired with the right dress – just like with Emma Stone’s choice to pair her Long Yellow Gold Earrings with her champagne colored dress. Movie icon Nicole Kidman also pulled off a similar look, but thanks to their similar fair skin tones, they both looked spectacular for the Academy Awards.

After the Oscars, many fashionistas said that Karlie Kloss actually stole the show thanks to her pairing a Diamond Flower Cluster Choker, Bracelets and Earrings. This classic pairing would have been right at home on the red carpet in 2017…or 1957. Paired with flowing blonde hair and blue eyes, Karlie is a classic Hollywood starlet if I ever saw one!

Speaking of classic, Kirsten Dunst actually had her dress commissioned from a 1952 Christian Dior Haute Couture dress. Karlie Kloss may have had the looks (and jewelry) to pull off classic Hollywood, but Kirsten had the dress. Kirsten came with some jewelry firepower of her own. 

With a diamond scroll-like flowery necklace and earring as well as diamond earrings, Kirsten showed timeless fashion on the red carpet for the Oscars.

Emma Stone stole the show with a nude/champagne dress, but it was Omega spokeswoman Nicole Kidman who also wore a champagne dress with pride at the Oscars. While her dress was relatively understated, her jewelry choices were deliberately colorful. With Red/Purple/Pink Long hanging Earrings, she brought attention to her shimmering jewelry and this choice of multi-colored reds/purples was a dramatic contrast with her champagne dress.

Diamonds and rubies have long been a stunning jewelry pairing. Ruth Negga tapped into the timeless pairing with her whimsical headband and earring pairing. While we don’t have any ruby headbands currently at Burdeen’s, we do love the pairing of diamonds and rubies as they go with any outfit, any skintone, any time.

Now, how could we forget Taraji P. Henson? After a moving performance in Hidden Figures, she stunned on the red carpet with her Mesh Diamond Choker paired with an Emerald and Diamond Ring.
