Engagement Rings on the Red Carpet

The 2010 Academy Awards, the holy grail of cinematic award ceremonies, will not be held until February 27, but the early prediction buzz has already started. And what a person wears, particularly an award winner, is always headline news the day after.

Designers fight to offer gowns and diamond jewelry is lent to leading ladies, and while we may have to just wait and see who wears what, we can predict a few sparkly pieces that are rumored to be there.

Despite the fact that she has already won an Oscar for best actress in 2002, Nicole Kidman is giving it another shot. Even though the official nominations are not out yet, Kidman is getting pretty good odds for her role in the upcoming movie The Rabbit Hole. And since the actress married fellow Aussie and country music star, Keith Urban, in 2006 she has rarely been seen without her unique engagement ring. The thee diamond Trinity engagement ring, rumored to be worth about $73,000 is at least one piece of jewelry we can expect to see this February.


Javier Bardem has plenty to celebrate about, since it looks like his performance in the movie Biutiful, while considered a long shot, is still being considered in the running for Best Actor. As if the nomination gossip weren’t enough, the recently married actor is also expecting his first child with actress Penelope Cruz. Although she is due in March, we can probably expect to see her in attendance with her 3 carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring. And since the two have been dating since 2007, Cruz has been sporting this engagement ring long before Kate Middleton worked to world into a Sapphire craze.

Amy Adams is beloved. She won audiences over with her performance in the fairytale spoof, Enchanted, and has continued to make audiences love her ever since, even receiving an Oscar nomination for last year’s Julie and Julia. This year, her name is being tossed around for best supporting actress again, this time for the drama, The Fighter. Even without the nomination, Adams is a red carpet regular, so we can plan on seeing her walk the red carpet with her one carat, Round cut diamond engagement ring, featuring pave’ set diamonds on the band and surrounding halo. The likable actress is constantly described as adorable, making this petite ring perfect for the petite star.

The months leading up to the Oscars only increases the interest of the public, so it’s safe to say that this is not the last we have heard about our favorite stars and their shot at the big time.
