Diamond Jewelry Doesn’t Disappoint at the 2015 Golden Globes

During last night’s red carpet strolls at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, few—if any—jewelry fans tuning in had to squint to see the jewels.

Stylists, it seems, have heard the pleas from the live-tweeting jewelry crowd, who worked  #globejewelry last night to call attention to the best jewels of the night. There were quite a few good looks, and the jewelry trends of the night were diamond fringe earrings and diamond statement necklaces, while platinum and colorless diamonds, in general, had their strongest showing in years.

New Zealand pop star Lorde wore a massive 100 cts. t.w. platinum and diamond Cleopatra-style bib necklace, as well as seven platinum and colorless diamond rings, all from Neil Lane. St. Vincent‘s Naomi Watts earned high compliments for the Bulgari diamond-studded snake necklace that seductively slithered into position around her neck, and though Orange Is the New Black‘s Laura Prepon may have missed the mark in a swirl-theme Christian Siriano gown, she scored points for her bib-style diamond necklace from Simon G. Good Wife nominee Julianna Marguiles, meanwhile, also wore a bib-style diamond necklace, though hers—like Watts’—was from Bulgari.

Diamond fringe earrings, however, were the It accessory of the night. Look to the lobes of Amal Alamuddin Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, nominee Amy Adams, Kate Beckinsale, nominee Jessica Chastain, and Sienna Miller for proof. Clooney wore Harry Winston platinum and diamond sparklers, J. Lo wore platinum and diamond numbers from Lorraine Schwartz, Amy Adams, nominated for her work in Big Eyes, wore platinum and diamonds from Tiffany & Co. Kate Beckinsale was dripping in champagne-color shoulder dusters from red carpet jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, and Jessica Chastain, nominated for her work in A Most Violent Year, wore Piaget white gold and diamond drops, and Sienna Miller wore platinum and diamonds from Tiffany & Co.

Of course, exceptions from the all-white looks were present—and appreciated—by many. Colored- stone queen Irene Neuwirth secured several placements, including on Best Actress in a comedy nominee Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michelle Monaghan, nominated for her work in True Detective, while Kimberly McDonald dressed funny girl Leslie Mann in stunning emerald slice earrings with boulder opal and diamonds. Nominee Emily Blunt’s Paraiba and diamond chandeliers from Lorraine Schwartz garnered lots of praise, as did Lupita Nyong’o’s amethyst, peridot, and diamond drops from Chopard. And unlike awards shows last year, yellow gold had a quiet showing. Jennifer Aniston, nominated for her work in Cake, wore black onyx and yellow gold chandeliers from Neil Lane, and Kelly Osbourne wore baubles from Platt Boutique, but few others donned the warmer metal this year.
