We are so happy to see that a major piece of jewelry from local designer Rosalina Lydster was worn at the Oscars this year. Robin Wright Penn's one-of-a-kind Rosalina bracelet, with over 11.5 carats worth of diamonds, is valued at $55,000. It complimented her Monique Lhuillier gown absolutely beautifully!
