Attending a formal evening means you have to choose the right dress and wear fashionable jewelry like Penny Preville. But don’t forget the hair. Celebrities are a good source to help you think what hairstyle to wear and what better congregation of celebrity hairstyles than in an Oscar night. Jessica Chastain’s half up and half down style with wavy hangs frames the face and highlights its soft features. Natalie Portman’s princess-like updo with a barrette gives her the vintage class. Stacy Keibler’s off-the-shoulder waves give her a teasing but neat look. Emma Stone’s twisting bun and paired with cat-eye gaze evokes a sweetheart appeal. Lastly, Sandra Bullock’s shiny ponytail she wore in 2012 Oscars proved the style isn’t dead yet. The swing gives her that swagger look.

The intricate patterns and exquisite details displayed by the bar cuff, entirely encrusted with brilliant diamonds, exhibit art deco. The style is both modern and classic, having been inspired by the art movement that sprung from France after World War I. Art Deco had a profound influence across industries, flourishing across countries and inspiring designers. It showcased geometric shapes and lavish ornaments, combining traditional craft motifs with images from the Machine Age-inspired steel and glass, among others. Penny Preville revives this influential art movement in its line of cuffs, rings, earrings, and necklaces, while adding a dash of luxury. Diamonds line the elaborate patterns and the platinum reflects a modern metallic appeal. This Penny Preville jewelry collection fits perfectly the classic woman with a taste for nostalgia.

It’s easy to imagine a little Penny Preville with big innocent eyes opening her grandmother’s jewelry box one regular day. The old lady must have been quick to reprimand the curious child that those jewelries were not toys. That day when she first saw those sparkling, luminescent jewelries stuck in Penny Preville’s mind, one that would set in motion her passion, and soon, her destiny to create a line of signature jewelry defined by femininity, luxury and detailed designs. Her Feathers Collections is one of the most impressive styles she’s created.

Modern luxury jewelry collections are fine, but classics or vintage jewelry have an air of opulence and nostalgia that only they can own. When Michael Douglas married Catherine Zeta Jones, he gave her a $2.5-million diamond ring, a vintage, marquise-shaped, 10-carat diamond with a 1920s vintage vibe. Douglas probably felt classics are more sophisticated and project more confidence. He’s right. Take the Penny Preville Classics Jewelry Collection. The simple elegant lines exude timeless elegance like the Engraved and Marquise & Round Bangle Bracelets. Paired that with the Round “Believe” Charm and Classic Round Earrings, you have one of the most graceful jewelry showcases ever. They can be worn on the most formal events or during casual night dates. Classic styles do not tune out of time, so they give you a lot of fashion flexibility.

Can’t decide which jewelry style for you? Truth is, no one style fits you; it depends on your clothes and what you’re attending. For a wide array of styles, Penny Preville presents over fifteen luxurious themes, all studded in elegance. The Classic features fine lines with minimum patterns that exude simplicity. On the other hand, the Imperial uses more flair and detailed patterns that suggest royalty. It is only matched by the Byzantine collection in opulence.

Life makes way for a determined woman who relentlessly chases a lifelong dream. In the case of Penny Preville, that woman was lugging a Radio Flyer red wagon to town in Fire Island. In her heart was a childhood passion for jewelry, and on that wagon were her own handmade jewelry creations.

Many things have changed since that fateful day thirty-five years ago in Long Island - Penny Preville is now a brand of exquisite craftsmanship and inspired design.

A man may spend the whole day figuring out what is between his woman and a Penny Preville necklace, and still cap the night with little clue, if any. He may not know that Penny Preville has been synonymous with high-end style, the signature jewelry worn, not by mortals, but Hollywood celebrities. Much less is he clueless that the designer, Penny Preville, started as a child tinkering with beads and seashells before moving up to 18-carat gold and platinum trinkets favored by millionaires and stars. But here’s a fact that may interest his analytical mind: jewelries extend far beyond seducing his woman with worldly desires; rather, recent social studies pointed out the role of these trinkets in setting our society to the path of civilization. A mouthful indeed, but Cro-Magnon findings revealed that bead necklaces and bracelets played more than just to the fancy of the bearer, a warrior of all people! Scientific or not, perhaps we can safely conclude that cave people were not vain. Rather, our ancient folks wore jewelries to identify themselves in case, say, they got trampled by a mammoth or a saber-tooth had them for breakfast. The jewelry at least could leave some clue who got the hit. More crucially, jewelries allowed our prehistoric people to gain a sense of individuality that would set their path to enlightenment, individual rights and whether we want our tomato sauce with mushrooms or Italian-style. Much like wearing a Penny Preville says a lot about your woman. She is stylishly above mortals.
