Jewelry.com spies on the statement
necklace sparkles, the styles and the stars making this year’s Golden Globes one for the style books.
All the fashion reports predicting the end of the jewelry statement on the
red carpet underestimated the power of the Golden Globes. How can you deny
Beyonce’s diamond fringe Lorraine Schwartz shocker or Christina Applegate’s
stunning vintage yellow diamond flower necklace – also from dame Schwartz? Not
to mention the wattage coming from Eva Mendez and Elizabeth Banks. The looks
were downright gasp-worthy.
Now, of course, there were those like a glowing Eva Longoria, who chose to
keep things on the down low. Lots of tasteful studs with a “no necklace” choice
made the red carpet rounds, including two-time winner Kate Winslet in 10-carat
Chopard earrings, Anne Hathaway in Van Cleef & Arpels diamond and sapphire
gems, and a gorgeous January Jones in barely there diamond studs also by Van
Cleef. (She should trademark that dress color. Stunning.)
Purple princesses, Anna Paquin, Hayden Panitierre and Olivia Wilde, also kept
the bling to a minimum.
But there were others, like Amy Adams, who brought out the big guns with
green gemstone statement earrings and a rocky right hand ring – another Lorraine
Schwartz win. Kate Beckinsale does no wrong in Fred Leighton earrings that
upstaged everything about her look. And Slumdog Millionaire star, Freida Pinto,
offered dangling gold and diamond statement earrings to complement her
Another red carpet trend emerged on the wrist. Lots of statement makers here,
including Bochic gold and turquoise snake bracelets on a resurfacing Sandra
Bullock, stunning diamond and gold cuffs on Freida Pinto and layered bangles in
every incarnation from the likes of Debra Messing and Megan Fox.
Keeping it safe was Angelina Jolie, who must have a closet full of that same
dress; Cameron Diaz appearing in her traditional ‘colorful’ gown choice with
barely a jewel in sight. And in an unfortunate turn, Marisa Tomei channeled
Captain Jack with her Seinfeld-worthy pirate shirt and layered pendant
Drew Barrymore split the critics with her Marilyn Monroe-inspired hair,
Galiano frock and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Or how about these diamond studs that two-time winner, Kate Winslet could
have rocked for a lot less.
Freida Pinto made a statement with jewelry and Best Film-winner, Slumdog Millionaire. These gems may not get you a Golden Globe, but they’ll earn you
legions of glittering fans.
