O'Connor forecasts that celebrities will reinterpret classic designs by experimenting with modern shapes and patterns. O'Connor offers the following red carpet trend predictions:

Making a Statement with One Major Earring
From the runway to the red carpet, ladies are making a statement by accessorizing with 1 stunning earring, and leaving the other ear bare. The Leo Diamond by Leo Schachter crafted a pair of 13.65-carat diamond deep drop stiletto style earrings with their "visibly brighter" diamonds that gradually increase in size and importance as they stretch to the shoulder. Priced at $200,000, this custom creation belongs on a classic yet fashionable beauty like Robin Wright.

For celebrities who are seeking a hefty earring, they can count on a pair by Interjewel USA for the Diamonds With A Story collection. Priced at $24,999 for the pair, these lengthy stunners include over 12-carats of white and champagne diamonds. The statuesque Michelle Dockery would standout in this design. The entire Diamonds With A Story collection contains rare, natural color diamonds sustainably and ethically sourced from the Argyle Diamond Mine.

Le Vian Couture® for the Diamonds With A Story collection is mixing Chocolate Diamonds® and Vanilla Diamonds®, to create a 3-row drop earring set in Strawberry Gold®, priced at $14,847. These would look gorgeous on a blond like Claire Danes.

Brenda Smith is taking the term "chandelier earring" to a new level by designing a pair of earrings that really look like a vintage chandelier. Part of the "Celebration Collection", these beauties featuring 29.91-carats of black diamonds are priced at $10,800. Julianna Margulies would know how to show them off!

Sparking with Colored Gemstones
Colorful gowns shine on the red carpet and look even better on television, so celebrities are going for a wide range of hues. As a result, we're seeing a rainbow of vibrant jewels to complement their looks. Bellarri crafted a decadent ring with over 26-carats of amethyst and diamonds, priced at $10,990. We envision Julia Louis-Dreyfus wearing this bauble.

Prestige for the Diamonds With A Story collection designed an opal, champagne diamond, and spesserite ring that will add the right amount of sparkle to an earth toned dress. At almost 20-carats and priced at $35,000, this style would look breathtaking on Julia Roberts.

Kallati introduces their "True Naturals" cocktail ring featuring 5-carats of natural yellow, green, brown, and pink diamonds, priced at $20,000. This color combination would look spectacular on Taylor Schilling.

Designer Leeza Braun will debut a pair of triple tassel earrings with 18.52-carats of yellow diamonds, priced at $102,000. Redhead Christina Hendricks would look divine in these gems.

Takat is showcasing a platinum necklace with over 85-carats of emeralds and diamonds, priced at $91,148. Kate Mara would turn heads in this design.

Not Your Grandmother's Pearls
We're seeing a resurgence of pearls for today's trendsetting woman. Mastoloni's "Signature Ice Collection Cascade Necklace" features south sea pearls blended with 68.37-carats of black diamonds beads and brilliant cut white diamonds, priced at $25,000. The gorgeous Lena Headey would rock this necklace!

Designer Susan Eisen Fine Jewelry handmade a pair of abstract gold, diamond and cultured pearl earrings cast from natural rocks and vegetation in the desert. Priced at $8,400 these earrings will look sophisticated yet edgy on Lena Dunham.

The Modern Stackable Bracelets
From ultra-thin and square to hefty and round, there are no rules when it comes to stacking multiple bracelets with different shapes and designs. The more the better on the red carpet! Dena Kemp is introducing a thick link bracelet with over 75-carats of diamonds that can be mixed with the brand's other bracelet designs. Kerry Washington would look like a princess in these pieces.

Vahan Jewelry's cuffs feature intricate details and geometric silhouettes with white diamonds and colored gemstones. One design includes a knot made from diamonds, priced at $52,325. It would make the perfect Emmy accessory for the stylish Lizzy Caplan.
