How to Wear Celebrity Jewelry
Celebrities are some of our greatest inspirations. When it comes to fashion, love, music, products, jewelry, and so much more, what we see them wear, use, or do we seek to emulate.
If you're constantly channeling your inner celebrity, keep reading! Here's how you can accessorize like an A-lister on the red carpet with a common woman's budget. Our stylist is breaking down fashionable accessories without the high price tag. Spoiler alert: you don't need to wear low-quality costume jewelry to attain these celebrity-style looks!
Hailey Bieber Earrings
Model, A-lister, and celebrity wife Hailey Bieber always manages to look polished and put together thanks to her sleek bun and classic gold hoop earrings.
Bieber's and other a-listers like Bella Hadid, Rhianna, and Gigi Hadid's go-to look is gold plated hoops. If you want gold hoops without having to pair a nearly $500 price tag, consider the Alexis Jae 25mm Gold Hoop Earrings. They'll become your new go-to pair that earn you tons of compliments. At a lower price point of $280, they're more accessible than celebrity jewelry, plus they're pure gold – not plated!
Serena Williams Tennis Bracelet
Have you ever wondered where the name "tennis bracelet" comes from? As jewelry history is often oral history, there's a mix of information about when the diamond line bracelet became the "tennis bracelet" we know today. The style itself has been around since the 1920s. However, the bracelet was only associated with tennis after the Chris Evert incident at the 1978 U.S. Open.
The Adventurine does a deep dive into the history of this piece of jewelry in The True Story of Chris Evert's Tennis Bracelet. However, the long and short of it is that this stunning piece of wrist jewelry is named after a diamond bracelet that Evert wore while playing in a 1978 tennis match. During the 1970s, she was rising through tennis ranks to become the #1 player in the world. She was donning chic sporting gear and extravagant bling even while playing.
During the 1978 U.S. Open, the bracelet flew off Chris' arm, and the match had to stop while she looked for the bracelet. During the reporting of this event, someone dubbed the bracelet the "tennis bracelet," and the rest is history! The tennis bracelet style quickly spread into other types of diamond jewelry, like diamond necklaces, diamond rings, and diamond earrings.
Today, Serena Williams has been photographed wearing her version of a tennis bracelet both on and off the court. Tennis bracelets typically start from $1,000 and range up to $100,000. The factors impacting the cost of a tennis bracelet include the type and rarity of metal and the quality, quantity, and size of the diamonds.
Our diamond tennis bracelet is made from recycled gold 14K white, rose, or yellow gold and ethically sourced diamonds. While often associated with tennis players, a tennis bracelet can be gifted to any woman. It can be used to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas, Valentine's Day, or any other exciting milestone. This sporty, light, and chic bracelet will make her feel special and famous, just like her favorite celebrity. For a more modern look, we love a diamond tennis choker!
Jennifer Lopez Engagement Ring
Emerald-cut engagement rings are a celebrity favorite. The rare cut is selected by only 5 percent of shoppers, which means it's unique, sophisticated, worldly, AND gorgeous. However, emerald-cut gemstones are quickly rising in popularity. If you're drawn to the emerald-cut diamond, you have great taste. Celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Amal Clooney, and Princess Grace have all worn this cut proudly on their ring finger.
An emerald-cut diamond is a rectangular stone with cut corners. These diamonds also feature step cuts, which are large facets that parallel each other. While the emerald cut isn't considered the sparkliest diamond available, it has other benefits. Second, an emerald cut is a desirable choice for anyone who wants to make their finger appear slender as it often has a flattering effect. One thing to note about emeralds is that their weight sits at the bottom, so for a comparable carat size, they appear smaller.
If you're looking for a beautiful, high-quality, custom engagement ring, contact Alexis Jae. Alexis Jae Bridal works with couples to create bespoke pieces perfectly suited to your needs. You can customize any ring lookalike like Blake Lively's stunning oval diamond ring.
Kate Middleton Jewelry
Kate Middleton, also known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has access to some of the best jewelry globally — including the Crown Jewels! The pieces she wears always make a statement. Here are some of her best jewelry looks over the years.
Sapphire Engagement Ring
Kate wears a stunning 12-carat oval sapphire stone surrounded by a whopping 14 diamonds. Yet, she didn't make this ring the phenomenon it is today. The iconic engagement ring once belonged to Prince William's (her husband) late mother, Princess Diana.
Because the piece is so iconic, you might not feel like a replica of the ring is the best way to emulate the royal style. And we'd have to agree. Anyone remotely aware of pop culture and celebrity jewelry will be able to identify the ring as Kate's (or Diana's). While you can draw inspiration, you don't necessarily want to be a copycat.
That's why we love these Large Blue Sapphire and Diamond Studs. They carry the same class and elegance as the engagement ring, but their subtle differences keep you from looking like a royal wannabe. These earrings are a unique statement piece. Each sapphire is specifically sourced for the earrings, so please reach out to us if you want to inquire more.
Pearl Drop Earrings
If you're feeling a bit skittish about wearing a style associated with the royal family, this one is for you.
You can see that pearl and gold earrings are one of Kate's go-to styles. She particularly loves her 18ct Gold Brown Diamond Baroque Pearl Earrings. She's been photographed in them multiple times (which isn't always the case for royals).
While the nearly $1,500 price tag isn't attainable for everyone, these Pearl Huggie Earrings by Alexis Jae ring in at almost a third of the cost.
Other Popular Celebrity Jewelry Looks
Jewelry trends are constantly changing. With Alexis Jae, your style can always be in.
1. Taylor Swift's Music-Inspired Jewelry
As one of the world's best-selling musicians, Taylor Swift is constantly making headlines, whether it's for her music, fashion, or jewelry. Here are some Taylor Swift-inspired jewelry looks for mega fans (the "Swifties").
In "Call It What You Want," Taylor Swift mentions a necklace during the bridge:
I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck, chain round my neck
Not because he owns me but 'cause he really knows me
Which is more than they can say
She's since been pictured wearing a Tiffany Notes Alphabet disc charm initial necklace, presumably gifted to her by current boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
If you love the idea of wearing the initial of your lover around your neck, Alexis Jae has options for you. Here are a few styles you may be interested in.
- Single Initial Necklace
- Large Diamond Initial Necklace
- Gold Initial Heart Necklace
- 14K Gold Diamond Initial Pendant
Gold Saturn and Moon Necklace
Another favorite piece of jewelry for Swifties everywhere. After Taylor shocked the world by surprise by dropping her album Folklore in July 2020, fans have loved the following line from the song "seven."
I love you to the moon and to Saturn
Depending on which part of the song you find captivating, you can pick your celebrity-inspired jewelry. Alexis Jae has three different fitting necklaces.
Religious Inspired Jewelry Trends
Have you ever seen a celebrity sport a thin red bracelet and wondered exactly what that could be? After all, most celebrities are dressed so intentionally that such a bracelet can look out of place with a couture gown or custom tux.
These bracelets are called Kabbalah bracelets. Kabbalah is a Jewish Bible study with a rich history tracing thousands of years. Its teachings are based around a set of spiritual principles, and it's thought that the bracelet fends off the negative powers of the evil eye to provide rich spiritual guidance in times of need.
Kabbalah bracelets are always worn on the left wrist and have a relatively plain red woven appearance. It's thought that the Kabbalah bracelet first entered celebrity fashion and jewelry culture with Madonna. In a sit-down interview with Larry King, she mentioned her belief in Kabbalistic teachings.
Michael Jackson is also thought to have possessed a handful of Kabbalah jewelry items in his expansive wardrobe. However, these two stars created a ripple effect. Other big names like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Mick Jagger, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashton Kutcher, Lindsay Lohan, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, and Angelina Jolie.
If you're a student of Kabbalistic teachings and are interested in wearing your own crimson string, consider investing in a high-quality piece like this Diamond String Bracelet. It's an elevated take on this popular bracelet.
