Seeing Stars–A Galaxy of Celestial Jewelry Designs

As the red carpet shows culminating in the 2011 Academy Awards become a memory, dazzling stars and other heavenly bodies will continue to shine through the seasons ahead. The February issue of InStyle magazine highlights these “Celestial motifs with lots of sparkle—for day or night.” 

Both moons and stars are highlighted in the selection of jewelry highlighted in InStyle, with stylized variations of stars and starbursts among the group. The article features a necklace from Roxanne Assoulin for Lee Angel, pendant necklaces from Kara Ackerman and Zoe Chicco, bracelets from CC Skye and Ben-Amun by Isaac Manevitz, earrings from Soo Ihn Kim and Azaara, and a ring from Julie Sandlau.

Dita Von Teese wears a spectacular star-studded headpiece from Stephen Jones Millinery to accompany a gown embroidered with dazzling sequined stars from Elie Saab Haute Couture as pictured in the February 2011 issue of InStyle.

This statement necklace from Tory Burch was featured in the December 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar  to illustrate an article about holiday gift-giving.

Taking a more casual approach, the March 2011 issue of Glamour pictures actress Diane Kruger wearing a small star pendant necklace from Chanel Fine Jewelry with a blazer from Stella McCartney, bra top from Viktor & Rolf, pants from Theyskens’ Theory and belt for Linea Pelle Collection. The hoop earrings are also from Chanel Fine Jewelry.

Star motifs can also provide a patriotic sub-text. The cover of the March 2011 issue of Glamour features Diane Kruger rocking a diamond star motif necklace from Chanel Fine Jewelry along with casual wear with an American sportswear theme—cut-off shorts from J. Brand, a tee shirt from Daryl K and a distressed jacket from Chanel.

Stars can indeed shine both night and day.
