It may be safe to say that the jewelry Twitterverse (#globejewelry was the hashtag of choice) was relatively pleased with the jewelry worn on the red carpet last night at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards. To be sure, a variety of looks were evident.
Golden Globe winner Amy Adams either channeled her American Hustle character or never left it by wearing a Lorraine Schwartz–made long yellow gold pendant that punctuated the double deep plunging neckline of her gown. 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o rocked a cape (yes, just like Gwyneth Paltrow did at the Oscars two years ago) and massive colorless diamond studs and vintage yellow gold jewels—including a pinky ring—from Fred Leighton. And then there was Sofia Vergara’s show-stopping carved turquoise and diamond choker from Lorraine Schwartz, a necklace that served as the pièce de résistance among jewelry-loving and tweeting viewers watching E! during the two-hour live program leading up to the show.

But the overall jewelry winners of the night were geometric styles, yellow gold, and Art Deco influences. During her red carpet walk, cohost Amy Poehler wore an oversize, gladiatoresque geometric-inspired cuff in yellow gold from Karla Welch for Jacob & Co., while Elisabeth Moss (who may have forever soiled the innocence of Giuliana Rancic’s beloved manicam with her off-color hand gesture) dazzled in long Jennifer Meyer yellow gold earrings with a trio of pyramid drops and diamond pavé. Plus, there were those incredible long onyx and gold earrings by Irene Neuwirth on Jenna Dewan-Tatum that perfectly complemented her off-the-shoulder black and white mermaid gown.
Meanwhile, Art Deco influences—often made with platinum—were also abundant. For examples, look to Jennifer Lawrence’s Neil Lane–made platinum earrings with black spinel, onyx, black diamonds, jade, and coral, along with four bracelets (thankfully, she caught the one that fell off her wrist during her chat with E! host Ryan Seacrest) and rings, all vintage numbers adding up to $2.5 million in value. Zooey Deschanel also brought the estate bling, courtesy of Neil Lane, in platinum and gold styles featuring diamonds and pearls, and garnering many an admirer in the Twitterverse. Ditto for Globe winner Cate Blanchett (Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her role in Blue Jasmine), who wore diamond-encrusted sideways-set hoop earrings from Chopard in a style that mimicked the lace effects of her gown by way of marquise-cut stones.

Of course, there were also plenty of big rocks on display last night—including Giuliana Rancic’s massive Forevermark-made 14.58 ct. oval-cut diamond ring and 10 ct. t.w. ear studs and Zoe Saldana’s 10 ct. t.w. gray diamond studs from Lorraine Schwartz—as well as yellow gold styles (think of Emilia Clarke’s gold stacking bangles from Sidney Garber and Naomi Watts’ Bulgari bracelet and link necklace). Plus, those pesky and oh-so traditional stud earrings (albeit with some big carat weights!) still perched on many an earlobe.
