Los Angeles, CA—No matter where the red carpet, whether the lavish celebrations of the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors’ Guild (SAG) or a simple dinner and movie premiere in New York, we’re seeing a recurring theme: a lot of little adds up to very big.
Yes, indeed, we’re seeing the return of the diamond cluster ring. And earring. And necklace. But like any trend that comes back, it’s never quite the same the second time around, so you still might have a tough time unloading those old ‘80s cluster rings hiding in the back of your safe. Or, maybe not—young women think vintage fashion is way cool and, sartorially speaking at least, the '80s have had a comeback. The best part is that the old adage about age-appropriate fashion (“if you wore it the first time, pass on it the second”) does not apply to jewelry! 
Some clusters (of the good kind) that happened at the SAG Awards came from Kwiat, on Anne Hathaway (left) who chose the jeweler’s cluster stud earrings and platinum and diamond stack rings. Actresses Clea Duvall and Jaime Alexander and Glee’s Jenna Ushkowitz piled on the diamonds from Demarco/House of Baguettes, while Duvall also heaped on more from Norman Silverman.

The other way to wear the “lots of little adds up to very big” trend, as we saw on First Lady Michelle Obama last week, is an armload of stacked bangles—kind of the steroid version of Hathaway’s diamond and platinum stack rings.

Any way you slice it (or facet it or cab it), clusters add up to a trend jewelers can sell. Diamond clusters seem to reappear every time stones take a hike in price, and with good reason: it all adds up to a big look for less cash. And we all know that stacked rings and bangles are a perfect way to keep the customer feeling comfortable buying a little at a time and coming back for more.

Now, let’s go to the red carpet and see who else wore what:
