Fred Leighton jewelry and Hollywood have enjoyed a long and intimate relationship. If you’ve ever watched the Academy Awards, for instance, you know the name Fred Leighton is synonymous with Red Carpet glamour, and is often the answer to the question: “Who are you wearing?”

“I created them in a classic crescent shape to frame her face,” says Leighton’s Rebecca Selva, who designed the jewels. “The spikes added a freshness to the traditional silhouette, and the rose-cuts—a diamond shape with facets on the top of the gem—gave the earrings a delicate soft sparkle.”

Celebrated for its extraordinary collection of vintage and estate jewelry, Fred Leighton has worked closely with superstars such as Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Natalie Portman, to name a few. Today, the contemporary designs of the Fred Leighton Collection combine a touch of Old Hollywood with 21st Century techniques and materials, setting a new standard for modern women who want to make a statement.
