Catalogue Note

JEWELS FOR THE RED CARPET

Earrings are one of the principal forms of jewellery recorded throughout history, once as a marking of social status and today a means of making a statement in the eye of the fashion world. As one of the most prominent pieces of jewellery to be worn, adorning and framing the face with a shimmering allure, earrings have been particularly responsive to changes in fashion. As hairstyles, collars and necklines have risen and fallen, earrings have correspondingly increased and decreased in size and prominence, instrumental to balancing and tying together the desired fashionable appearance.

The way that earrings have been worn and their function within an ensemble have quickly become the ideal form for harmonizing or adding drama to an overall 'look', and in Hollywood, earrings are the essential finishing touch. Inspired by this the following jewels have been curated as a collection of Jewels for the Red Carpet. Lot 1663, a pair of emerald and diamond earrings by Martin Katz, are already acquainted with the red carpet as they were worn earlier this year at the Golden Globes by Ashley Judd, one of the leaders of the #MeToo campaign.

Whatever the style of dress, there is no denying that a pair of statement earrings is the final flourish that every outfit needs.
