Sydney based fine jeweller Melissa Harris has been internationally heralded for more than twenty-five years for her definable design. Starting her career in the eighties in Hollywood, Melissa’s signature style has piqued the interest of her enviable celebrity clientele, including Jodie Foster, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett and Elton John.
We asked Melissa to run her expert eye over the Oscars red carpet this year and pick her favourite jewels.
Says Melissa: I had a hard time choosing my favourite look at the Oscars 2016. Every year a particular category of jewellery seems to find favour with stylists and this year it was diamond earrings that commanded the spotlight. However there were also some stand-out necklaces.
Charlize Theron slayed it on the red carpet in Dior with beautiful Harry Winston lariat, a refreshing change from short necklace lengths usually seen at the awards and it emphasized that beautiful plunging neckline. You may have missed the beautiful Harry Winston diamond cluster earrings!
