2013 Oscars Boast Colorful Jewels and Gowns!

During the 85th Academy Awards last night, it seemed that all the rage on the red carpet was “neutral.” We saw lots of beige, creme and silver. We were happy to see however, that a few stunning (and brave) actresses sported their true colors along with some Omi Privé fine jewelry!

Sadie Alexandru, on screen known as the sassy secretary, Scarlett, from AMC’s Emmy Award Winning show ““Mad Men,” complimented the red carpet with her sapphire and diamond Omi Privé suite.

Best known for her roll as “Scarlett” on “Mad Men,” Sadie Alexandru accompanied her sparkling dress and smile with an Omi Privé sapphire and diamond ring, bracelet and earrings.

Sadie wears Omi Privé’s sapphire and diamond bracelet featuring 10.64 carats of round sapphires accented by 7.47 carats of brilliant round diamonds. Additionally, this Omi Privé sapphire ring stunner features a 7.51 carat oval center surrounded by 1.19 carats of sparkling round diamonds.

Sadie’s Omi Privé earrings are handcrafted with two pear shaped sapphires totaling 8.04 carats cradled by 1.17 carats of diamonds.

A few other actresses were spotted wearing color and brightening up the 2013 Oscars:

Always stunning, Jennifer Garner chose a fabulous Gucci gown reminiscent of Pantone’s Fall color, Acai. An alexandrite ring would be the perfect compliment to a dress like Jennifer’s, as it would highlight the natural purple hues in the nighttime and onstage lighting.


Red hot on the red carpet, Jennifer Aniston could “Samba” all night rocking this hot Pantone color! Of course, rubies are the classic choice to pair with the red of Jennifer Aniston’s dress. We think this ruby and diamond bracelet featuring 13 deep red round rubies would be the perfect compliment!

Reese Witherspoon should have wowed the crowd with a stunning sapphire cocktail ring. That would have definitely popped on the red carpet with her electric blue gown!


Correspondant for the Today show, Maria Menounos, glows in pinks similar to Pantone Fall 2013 color “Vivacious.” Pink sapphire, spinel or pink tourmaline all provide vibrant pink hues.

Keep up with red carpet styles by showing your color! View all of the Fall Pantone colors here, and when you’re looking for those colors to compliment an ensemble, view the Omi Privé collection on our website.

Omi Gems Rocks the 84th Annual Academy Awards with Elton John

Elton John hosted his 20th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party this past Sunday to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation. This year’s party in West Hollywood Park turned into nothing short of a dazzling runway, complete with some of the world’s most beautiful women like Heidi Klum, Dita Von Teese, Marisa Miller and budding actress, Sadie Alexandru.

Actress Sadie Alexandru shows off her stunning Omi Gem's aquamarine and diamond ring during the Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party and fundraiser.

Along with luminaries from every industry, Alexandru, who is currently a guest star on the new hit Cinemax series “Femme Fatales” shined in her Omi Gems 11 carat aquamarine and diamond ring. “What a truly AMAZING evening we had last night at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar party where 5.1 million dollars were raised for the AIDS Foundation. We had a blast mingling, eating and dancing with all of the generous and glamorous benefactors. A big thank you Omi Gems for my stunning jewels from their Privé collection!” said Alexandru.

Aquamarine and diamond ring handcrafted with an 11.00 carat radiant cut aquamarine center stone accented with 1.60 carats of brilliant diamond rounds set in 18K white gold. MSRP $27,500

John was seated at a table in the middle of the ballroom, where the multi-award winning songwriter sat alongside a blue-haired, happy-looking Katy Perry and Smokey Robinson. Other attendees like Heidi Klum, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris were all buzzing about one important attendee: Elton and David’s son Zachary. At just over a year old, the little man was adorable in a miniature tuxedo monogrammed with his name. Zach was very excited about the chocolate Pomeranian toted by Fran Drescher.

Elton John's son, Zachary, loved Fran Drescher's chocolate Pomeranian.

John commented during his post-telecast that Sunday night’s crowd was the largest ever with 910 guests and that he was thrilled to be raising both money and awareness for the prevention and treatment of Aids.

Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese were all sparkles with Elton John.
