      Orange/yellow branch collar necklace! This reminds me of diving into my grandmother’s Sarah Coventry jewelry as a kid. I always felt so glamourous…

      • Anathema_Device

        I gasped at that one. What a great piece.

        • conniemd

          Me too. Didn’t like the dress it was paired with, thought. It needed a plain color not a print.

      • Sabin

        Ooh, Sarah Coventry! My mom briefly sold SC back at the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Before she decided to divorce my dad and become a hippy. Then a devoted fag hag. Then an opera dresser. Then a county telecommunications manager.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

          Your mother was a glamourous woman of intrigue, Sabin.

      • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

        Absolutely. That piece and the rose pin are spectacular.

      • quiltrx

        That much orange that close to my face would take me straight to corpse-town…but I did softly whisper “another color…” as I gazed on it. It’s a cool piece.

    • DTLAFamilies

      Old Navy has similar styles right now at a price point for us peasants/

      • StarburstLady

        Yeah, this kind of jewelry has been worn by everyone for the past year or two– not particularly innovative.

        • RoseJB

          I agree. It almost looks dated at this point.
          Plus, I don’t think us ladies are ready for enormous earrings again yet.

    • DuBey2

      His jewelry is much too over-the-top for me, but I do appreciate how they look here on these models. Some, however, looked exactly like the costume jewelry I inherited when no one else wanted it and its mostly fallen apart.. I tried to sell it but no one else wanted it either.

    • Violentcello

      I adore the necklace in the third shot and the dress in the first. Gimme.

    • Chaiaiai

      Must purchase neck first.

      • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

        Yep.! I’ll take an Audrey Hepburn neck, please.

    • TigerLaverada

      Very costume-y, reminding me of the big chunky plastic jewelry available in the 5 and dime in the 50s. Couple of those broaches look like the kind of lacquered floral pins my grandma used to favor back in those days.

      • conniemd

        Yeah. Looks like the jewelry you’d find in your great-aunt’s jewelry box. Personally I love colorful chunky jewelry, but I swear I could find identical items at flea markets and yard sales. Why would anyone spend a lot of money on any of this, since it looks cheap. Now I’m definitely going to scour the flea market this Saturday so I can look hip and chic.

        • formerlyAnon

          Tell me your secret. I inherited a ton of this stuff. I like it in theory, but on me it goes all “suburban mom who substitutes as an elementary teacher & hopes to finish her teaching certificate in art when the kids are older.” None of which describes my life, except the mom part.

          • decormaven

            Have fun with that stuff. I broke down the really bizarre pieces and glued it onto foam crowns that you can get at crafts stores. I gave them to my girlfriends to wear on their 50th birthdays. I call ‘em Crazy Crowns- might as well use that bling for good use.

            • formerlyAnon

              Excellent idea!
              (You sound like a fun friend!)

            • decormaven

              Thanks! I do believe I am a fun friend.

            • conniemd

              My crazy old aunt used to buy them at yard sales and flea markets and then glue them on to red velvet to make jeweled Christmas trees. I always had a ball going to her house and picking through her junk for pieces I liked. Course that was years and years ago and that stuff is all gone.

            • decormaven

              My aunt was the Queen of Costume Jewelry. Every Saturday, she would drive a carload of her friends to neighboring department stores for a shopping expedition. She amassed a small chest of drawers full of costume jewelry- sadly, no “name” pieces. I wear it, I loan it out, I craft with it. Sparkly things make me happy.

          • Darva Sutra

            Yeah, I know what you mean. Being an immature 45-year-old glamor girl, if I wear pieces like this with suits, dresses or anything even vaguely retro, it screams “matronly”, which is kind of a dirty word to me… it probably shouldn’t be, but whatever.

            That said, I LOVE jewelry like this – big, bling-y, colorful! Have a ton of it both vintage (recommend trolling ebay) and newer. I wear it in an insouciant manner with simple plain tanks/tees, crisp white button downs, and edgier weekend “rocker looks” – graphic or studded tees, distressed jeans, converse. Only wear one or 2 pieces at a time, not the whole parure!

          • conniemd

            It’s a matter of age, probably. I just turned 60, but I work in professional office, so I wear mostly jackets with plain colored shirts. The chunky necklaces and bracelets keep it from being boring and I mix and match. I probably look like crazy old lady, but I like to think of myself as using the jewelry to keep me young in spirit and having my own personal style. ;)

    • Cindy Wong

      Love the color and how bold it is!

    • hughman

      Love this whole Miriam Haskell vibe. Very cocktail party at The Club.

      • beadskrit

        Exactly what I was thinking! A very nice send up of such an important designer.

    • Sarah

      Deployed properly, this stuff could be stunning. Those ladystars who are preferring all black ensembles should pick this stuff up, regardless of its “Spring” line label.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Yes, many of these pieces would give some oomph to the black ensembles we’ve been seeing so much of on the RC this fall. With jewelry this bold-in color and size the simpler the dress/suit the better.

        • Sarah

          Right? I immediately thought of the black turtleneck dress on Toni Collette yesterday. How nice a backdrop that would’ve made for that red necklace!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Now we know what Toni needed -Oscar!

    • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

      Except for the yellow pieces, I love it all. I’ll take one of everything.

    • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

      The model second from the top needs to get that mole checked out. It worries me. No, I’m not joking for once.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Takes a lot of money to look that cheap.

      • MoHub

        Dolly Parton is going to sue for copyright infringement.

    • joything

      When I was little and played with my grandmother’s costume jewelry, this is how big the pieces looked on me.

    • mmebam

      Living for the necklaces!

    • Aidan B

      They do compliment the looks nicely but they look just a little…I dunno…cheap, I guess?

    • Gloriana Reginata

      Wow, I’m shocked that I don’t like a single one of these – and I’m a lady for unsubtle colour, I assure you. I can see how they could be deployed to jazz up something spartan and black, but none of them awakens lust in me in and of themselves.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Gaudy and cheap looking. I love it.

    • filmcricket

      Not to my taste at ALL. But it is nice to see some colour and bling when the RC has been so tragically lacking in both.

    • Kathy

      Sparkly, shiney and Oh Holy Sh*t, am I wearing my bifocals?

    • SophieCollier

      Fun jewelry. But the models’ faces are all too tiny and delicate to really pull off the looks. Need some stronger-featured models for jewelry photos, I think. At least, for pieces this large and lavish.

    • sojourneryouth

      I dunno. On the one hand, as a wearer of big jewelry, I appreciate the size and colorfulness. On the other hand, these pieces are totally costume and look kinda cheap when they totally are NOT. If there were at least some semi-precious stones thrown in the mix, I would like them a lot better. As is, they strike me as a bit tacky.

    • Anathema_Device

      Not a big fan of massive earrings like these, but i love most of the necklaces and the bracelet.

    • Sabin

      They make me a little misty for my grandma. When she died in 1987, there were a *lot* of these pieces in her jewelry box.

      • Lori

        My mom owned stuff like this back in the day and this has me wondering what happened to it. I think she got rid of most of it, but I’ll have to ask her.

        That’s my way of saying that I like someone of it, but not at de la Renta prices. Mom’s inexpensive costume jewelry can be a fun, retro thing to wear but the idea of paying top dollar for it is just weird (and borderline offensive) to me.

    • Aaminah Khan

      I realise each of those pieces probably costs much more than my monthly rent, but they look like costume jewellery. Fun costume jewellery, but still.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Big ass Rose rhinestone pin, I shall love from afar. Forever.

    • MilaXX

      Yay for me. I might not wear them all together, but I love a big earring.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      My mother had a set of costume jewelry, clip on earrings and a pin, that look just like the orange necklace, twelfth one down.

    • quiltrx

      I really like the ‘hundred little flowers’ earrings. And the encrusted, huge rose pin wants to come live with me an occasionally be pinned to the lapel of my winter coat. :)

    • Trickytrisha

      They’re not going for subtle here, are they? I dunno, all those earrings seem to be clip ons. I can’t imagine that the weight wouldn’t stretch earlobes out alarmingly if they were for pierced ears. Anyhoo, I’m not in love with 90% of these, the other 10% I might be in like with, especially the second from the bottom earrings.

      BTW, who is the bee stung lipped model, fourth from the bottom in big ass black earrings? I’ve seen her all over the place this year on runways.

    • TerryMarie

      So it would be fair to say that subtlety is out?

    • Jaeda Laurez

      The earrings all look super heavy, but the necklaces I might be in love with, especially that first pink.

    • boweryboy

      I like even numbered 2 – 12 only.

    • Miss WKS

      hahahahahaaaaaa….those earrings….they are the type that pull women-of-a-certain-age’s earlobes down to our shoulders….no wonder they got 12-year-olds to model them…..

      • MilaXX

        I’m of a certain age and don’t have that problem.

    • Mona_Visa

      Perfect for a key party in 1968.

    • marlie

      I don’t like everything here, but there are a lot that I do like. There a a lot of great statement pieces!

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      This jewelry is beautiful. The earrings ONLY LOOK GOOD with this type of hairstyle and no necklace. When I see prominent earrings with a necklace, I gasp out of shock and disappointment.

    • bertkeeter

      Shades of Santee Alley!

    • PeaceBang

      Love the champagne colored flower cluster earrings and the second-to-last ones.

    • unbornfawn

      Too big and too costume-y for me.

    • lobsterlen

      Those earrings would last mere seconds on a mortal women’s earlobes. I am just looking at them my earlobes are getting itchy.

    • BKagainwiththesweatpants

      Jessica Pare will soon be bedazzling us with a number of these earrings, and it looks like Oscar used The Bedazzler to make some of these. Yikes.

    • MoHub

      Are those earrings clippies? If so, my unpierced ears are saying thank you.

    • rissa42210

      gimmie dat!

    • crash1212

      Gimme all of it. ALL OF IT!

    • formerlyAnon

      Oscar’s been browsing his equivalent of the costume jewelry collection I inherited from my godmother. On the whole, it works as well now as then. (I’m a fan, in theory but it all goes a little pear shaped when I try it.)

    • SusannaGA

      Thank you, TLo — this is my pretty of the day. Love them all, especially the gray (#14) and pastel pink & blue (#17). This looks like the final, official end of late 1990s/early 2000s minimalism, and I’m excited to see what might trickle down from the fantasy/runway world to the real world.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      YUMMY!!!

    • broke&fashionable

      Big! Bold! Color! Let’s hope these infiltrate our grieving red carpets.

    • TLJezebel

      Trump pageant earrings.

    • lalahartma

      I hope those are clip ons.

      • R. L.

        Still would hurt. I can’t wear any clip ons.

    • mdcoon127

      Does Amrita Singh design for OdlR now? A lot of those earrings are straight out of her line…

    • MoreShoes

      I love big earrings but these look so heavy that you get a headache just looking at them, let alone wearing them.

    • guest2visits

      Not so much of a fan of the jewelry as the fabrics I see.

    • Kimberly Wilcox

      I dig some of it…but some of it will very easily come across as cheap costume jewelry, which is great if someone breaks into your house and goes through your jewelry, but less so if you’re looking for something elegant. That being said…do like particularly loud jewelry…
