Trend-spotting Oscars 2017 Jewelry with Jewelry Expert Michael O’Connor! Podcast!

It’s now 2 days ONE day before the Academy Awards and Los Angeles is wild! People are running around going to pre-Oscar parties, luncheons, cocktails, and also seeing stylists in super-secret suites. Usually you get some blast (video or podcast) of me at StyleLab, a fabulous jewelry suite at a super-secret location, talking to stylist to the stars, Michael O’Connor.



Normally I would have been in Beverly Hills as some super-elite hotel seeing who was coming and going in that suite. Unfortunately this year, it was near impossible to make it work. Instead, I got lucky enough to get Michael O’Connor for 25 minutes on the phone! I am sharing that podcast with you along with photos of the jewelry from an amazing array of designers that Michael O’Connor and I talk about in this podcast!! Listen carefully to this podcast because you might hear some tips on what’s already going to be on some celebrities.  Worth the time (25 minutes) to hear the jewelry expert, Michael O’Connor talk about red carpet styles and trends for Oscars 2017!!

Jewelry from StyleLab! I have organized the jewelry by brand because it’s easier to find it when you are looking by brand.
I cannot guarantee all are perfectly correct order though. Be prepared to take some time to read the details about each piece since there’s a lot of information about the total carat weight and the different stones in most pieces.
