Jack Vartanian 

Brazilian-based Jack Vartanian has been crafting fine jewelry since 1999. But with strong family ties to the gemstone trade industry, Vartanian’s exposure and training actually started when he was just a teenager. Today, his fashion-forward designs and innovative use of materials – including the avant garde, cuff earrings that made a big splash during last year’s awards season – are rooted in classic forms, creating contemporary pieces fit for young starlets and Hollywood icons, alike.

Fans include: Halle Berry, January Jones, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba, Emma Stone, Anna Kendrick 

What we can expect this year: Ear climbers will continue to be in high-demand, especially being mix-matched with other earrings. Punk and retro styles done in fine jewelry and softened with pale hues will make these edgier looks more wearable on the red carpet. Geometric shapes and retro hoops are also key this awards season.
