If I had been strutting the red carpet on Oscar night, here's what I would have worn along with my purple, backless Versace gown. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?)


Vacheron Constantin
The Lady Kala Duchesse watch gives a whole new meaning to the term "bling." I don't know how easy it is to read, but with 840 diamonds totaling 58.8 carats, who really cares?

Suggested retail price is $606,000.



Daniel K
"Central Park" earrings in platinum, which feature exquisite, cushion-cut diamonds totaling 6.46 carats that appear to float on the wearer. I think I'd pair them with one of his jaw-dropping right-hand rings. I might throw a diamond brooch on my dress, too, in an unexpected place such as my hip or the small of my back.

Designer Daniel Koren's designs combine traditional craftsmanship with modern design. A third-generation jeweler of Persian and Italian descent, Koren launched Daniel K after spending his life accompanying his father to work and doing everything from sweeping the floors and sorting stones to making jewelry for friends.

Suggested retail price is $184,250.
