Last night’s star-studded Golden Globes Awards was much anticipated by gossip columnists hungry to dish, Hollywood celebs vying for an award, and, of course, jewelry lovers who wanted to see some major sparkle. The Red Carpet show did not disappoint. Jewelry insiders today are buzzing about three trends spotted last evening: Yellow gold, art deco inspired jewelry and geometric designs.
In the hallways of the American Gem Society, here’s three stars we were talking about this morning; or to be more specific, we were talking about their jewelry:
Cate Blanchett wins our award for classiest look. The actress was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her role in Blue Jasmine; she won, and she also won our vote for her diamond sideways-set gold hoop earrings. The marquise-cut stones mimicked the lace of her dress; nice touch. In a town where the tendency is to go too big and too loud, she kept things classy and beautiful.
Sofia Vergara turned heads as always, but had a little extra insurance to up the glam factor: A carved turquoise and diamond choker. It was a statement piece that stood out on a night where there were many statement pieces.
Finally, Jennifer Lawrence, proved she’s not only got some good old-fashion American Hustle, she’s got just as much style. What’s not to love about these platinum drop earrings with black spinel, onyx, black diamonds, jade, and coral? Not to mention the stunning bracelets and rings, all vintage numbers adding up to $2.5 million in value.
The Golden Globes is great foreshadowing for the Oscars. Sure, it gives us a better clue as to who might win the coveted award, but more so, it shows us who can bring the shine to the Red Carpet pre-show.
