There is no doubt about how much I love men.  I love them, preppy, grungy, long haired, short haired and everything in between.  Normally the only accessory I like to see on my guys is a beard (God I love a beard- yum!) but how amazing do these stylish men look in their jewelry.  They all are definitely exceptions to my no jewelry on guys rule.

I love a girl that utilizes the power jewelry has to completely make an outfit and Nicole Kidman is a perfect example of that.  She certainly is not afraid to spice it up with jewelry. 


A great way to play with your jewelry is to mix it up and wear all different colors of metals all at once.  The days of wearing matchy matchy jewelry are thankfully over!  Jewelry should coordinate but not necessarily match.  Once you see them worn all together they instantly "go" together.  Go ahead and take that gold ring and pile it on with your 2 silver ones.  If you are a little nervous on where to start here are a few tips to think of when choosing what works with what.

Your choices should look deliberate.  So an idea is to take 1 silver and 1 gold ring and wear them on the same finger.  I usually follow the rule that things look better in odd numbers so if you are going to wear 2 rings on one finger throw a third ring on another finger on the same hand to really make a deliberate statement.  If mixing stone color and metal color is a bit too daring for you, stick with one stone, say diamonds, but mix it up with the different color bands like Rihanna did pictured here. Remember that variety is the spice of life, so go express that through your rings, and have fun doing it!

This emerald and diamond tiara sold at Sotheby's Geneva auction last week for a price-busting $12.76 million - the highest price ever achieved for an emerald jewel.  Worth every penny in my opinion!  So to honor this gorgeous deep green stone I thought I would post some more red carpet moments this gorgeous stone has had.
