Golden Globes 2019: Top 4 Jewelry Moments
AS REPORTED BY OUR FINE JEWELRY EXPERT, AMY ELLIOTT
Pops of color flashed here and there (lots emeralds and rubies and some very nice tourmalines), but bright, high-wattage diamonds ruled the Golden Globes red carpet, mainly in the form of stiletto earrings and supersized danglers and clusters.
Below, a recap of the evening’s most memorable—and exquisite—fine jewelry moments.
Clad in voluminous Valentino, the style icon/superstar, Lady Gaga, made a statement in the Tiffany aurora necklace, a custom creation featuring 300 brilliant diamonds, including a 20-carat pear shaped diamond pendant as the centerpiece of the design. She complemented the piece with Tiffany & Co. diamond cluster earrings and three Tiffany diamond bracelets, altogether wearing more than 100 carats of diamonds. Chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff described Gaga as, “a visionary artist who truly exemplifies creativity and iconic style,” — and we couldn’t agree more.
The Crazy Rich Asians star, Constance Wu, also chose Vera Wang and paired the lingerie-inspired gown with Parisian jewelry designer Valerie Messika’s magic spell diamond choker and firebird diamond earrings.
TREND ALERT: Chokers were a very big last night
(see: Rachel Weisz in Cartier and Kiki Layne in Bulgari).
“Mrs. Maisel” (aka Rachel Brosnahan)
accepted her award for her role in the Amazon Prime series wearing a custom Prada gown, highlighting its marigold hue with Irene Neuwirth one-of-a kind single earrings: Each dangler featured combinations of green and yellow tourmalines and pavé diamonds. She completed her look with a rainbow moonstone and sapphire bracelet, and rings made with moonstones, pink tourmalines and sapphires.
The perfect accessory for the actress’s icy custom Armani Privé gown? An antique diamond necklace from high-end estate jeweler Beladora. The delicate design’s swags, bows, blossoms and loops suggest that it hails from the Edwardian era.
