The Jewelry Insider

What’s better than Charlize Theron in Dior? Charlize Theron in Dior dripping in emerald jewelry.

Yup, my favorite style star has done it again with one of the most jaw-dropping red carpet looks I’ve seen lately at the World Premiere of her latest film Snow White and the Huntsman. To die.


Let’s face it. We’ve all ‘been there and done that’ with the basic black/emerald combo on the red carpet from Angelina Jolie to Reese Witherspoon to Julianne Moore and back again.

But these stunning jewels by Solange Azagury-Partridge put Theron’s latest look in the red carpet record books as far as I’m concerned.

Let’s break it down, shall we:

We have the disco ball drop emerald earrings in 18K blackened gold.


We have this crazy couture cup ring in blackened and white 18K gold with emeralds.


And (big, deep, breath) she finished the ensemble with this sensational step cuff featuring a (wait for it….) 74 ct cabochon emerald with pave set green beauties surrounding it – all in 18K blackened white gold.

The Dior dress has some bloggers crying foul for the ‘unflattering fit’, but I’m blown away by it. It puts an elegant, sexy spin on what could have been an Angelina-Jolie-esque basic black snorefest.


What do you guys think? Do you dare dish the diva in black? Or are you worshiping at her Dior-clad feet like me? Weigh in!

Up next? Stay tuned for my crazy Cannes coverage of all those couture jewels from the croisette! Diane Kruger is a juror this year and is sure to wow with some stunning Chopard ice!

    Whatever Charlize wears, she will really make it look fantastic. Given that these are emeralds, now it’s twice the beauty. She carries it very well and very sexy, as usual!

    We’re not surprised that two such sophisticated stars would go for the same sophisticated Lanvin dress. On Charlize, it’s modern and sexy in black and paired with strappy sandals, and on Rachel, the emerald hue feels a tad more demure but equally elegant.
