Red Carpet Report: 2015 Emmy Jewelry Trends

Oh how we love the red carpet! Last night we watched the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (for the jewelry of course!), and are here to report on the top Emmy jewelry trends. Check em’ out!

Bangles & Cuffs Bangles and cuffs were all over the red carpet (and they’re a hot fall jewelry trend!). Amy Poehler showcased a new look with a black dress, long, hair, and bangles galore by Neil Lane. Natasha Lyonne’s arm shined with black, gold, and diamond bangles. Shop for this fall’s bangle trend at Jewelry.com.

Gemstone Earrings Gemstones on the red carpet just make our hearts sing, and this year the red carpet was full of them. Julie Bowen paired her black ensemble with some lovely green earrings by Monica Vinader, while Jaimie Alexander wore gorgeous purple drops by Baccarat.

The 2013 Golden Globes red carpet was a mixed bag of sensations, snores and surprises, with everything from a $5.7 million Harry Winston diamond necklace (or scarf as my colleague Mandy Tracy at Jewelry.com aptly called it) to barely there diamond studs to…yes…even a bug!

Here’s the highlight reel for your drooling pleasure (many credits forthcoming). And, as usual, please be sure to weigh in with your favorites of the night!

1. Diamond Necklaces

Shocker! Diamond neckwear stole the show this year with stunning vintage looks from Olivia Munn in Chopard, Jessica Alba in that $5.8 million Harry Winston shocker, Sally Field’s neckwear knockout to host Amy Poehler’s Chopard lariat weighing in at (wait for it…) 83 carats! Ba-ling!
 

2. Earring Statements 

Julianne Hough was my first jewelry sighting of the night – and I was pleasantly surprised to know that her choice in ear candy was a riskier move than her choice to pair up with Ryan Snorecrest. That’s a REAL beetle stud earring and praying mantis ear cuff – both by Daniela Villegas. Win!
 

Taylor Swift’s Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings won big with the folks who participated in the head-spinning #globejewelry Live Tweet fest.


Just look at all these jaw-droppers tailor-made for looky-loos like us!

3. Diamond Sticks and Studs

Zzzzzzzzzz……… ‘Nuff Said.

4. Julianne’s Bulgari Blowout

Golden Globe-winner Julianne Moore deserves her own section this year, jewelry hounds. As the former spokesmodel for Bulgari and apparently friendly enough with Tom Ford to ask him to design her something by EMAIL (jealous!), well, it just doesn’t get much better than this.

6. Red, Burgundy and Ballet Pink

The A-list continues to turn out in red frocks (and safe jewels). These women are all stunning, but, I’m sorry. I just yearn for more ‘outside the box’ choices every now and again. But…this is a trend report and well, it’s still an Awards Show staple. Wake me when it’s over.

HOWEVER, a refreshing color craze helped to rouse me from my slumber….the blushy hues of ballet pink. Observe…

7. Spotlight Stealer/Meme Alert:

Move over A-Jo…

There’s a new ‘gam’ in town.

I KNOW I’ve missed many other moments worth mentioning. Who wore your favorite frock and jewel combo?

And don’t forget to check in with Jewelry.com later tomorrow, where we’ll attempt to pair some of these jaw-dropping jewelry looks with real-world alternatives. Fun!

Jewelry, hounds? It’s officially Awards Season. And with the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards kicking things in to high gear tonight, I thought I’d offer up a few predictions and a red carpet drinking game to keep the LIVE TWEET crowd buzzed enough to weigh in with equal parts snark and honesty.

Live Tweet, you ask? Be there, people. Use #globejewelry from 4:00PST/7:00EST on and join what is now our 4th annual Awards Season gathering where high falutin’ jewelry editors and designers mash it up with us regular jewelry-lovin’ folk as we gasp, gawk and begrudge our favorite celebs on the red carpet. Ryan Seacrest is a favorite target.

So. On to the predictions – always a fun exercise in futility.

1. Emerald Elegance. It’s the Color of the Year, folks, and it’s ALWAYS a red carpet staple. I’m thinking we’ll see oodles of it this year in frock form and in the jewelry department.

 


 2. No necks. No nonsense. Neckwear is still a relative no-show on the red carpet. Instead, the A-list likes to pile on the bangle or stretch their ear lobes with statement earrings (and with Mia Farrow-esque short hair making a comeback on stars like Anne Hathaway, earrings are a definite no-brainer).


3. Vintage, Deco and Estate. What’s old is new again. This month’s InDesign Magazinepoints out that period jewelry made its mark on 2012 and promises to stay well into 2013. I’m looking for Claire Danes to don some deco (a favorite of hers from the Emmys), Naomi Watts to rock the vintage diamond ice and her BFF Nicole to come out in some crazy estate piece from Fred Leighton (a favorite of hers from awards shows past).


4. Earthly delights. Natural gemstone looks (geode, moonstone, etc) from designers like Kimberly McDonald were once a red carpet surprise but are now a regular player on A-listers like Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and nominee, Amy Adams.

Everyone who has ever followed my coverage of big red carpet events knows that champagne plays a large part in making the magic happen. And I KNOW I’m not alone! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler published their drinking game guidlines for the show itself earlier this week (hilarious – check it out here), so I thought I’d throw out some suggestions for the red carpet gawk fest.

Turn the TV to E! Online, find a comfy chair, put on your snark suit and……DRINK!:

1. When you see someone wearing emeralds
2. When Guilana Rancic says ‘sweetie’
3. If Sofia Vergara bears cleavage.
4. When Ryan Seacrest forgets to ask “Who designed your jewelry?”
5. When you…zzzzzz…..get a simple studs sighting.
6. Every time you hear Lorraine Schwartz, Chopard or Cartier

This should do the trick! Check in after the show for my trends recap and to Jewelry.com for our Celebrity-Inspired Sale using all the hottest looks from the night! Toodles for now!

The 2009 Glamour Women of the Year Awards took place last night in New York’s grand Carnegie Hall, and the star power was at full wattage – despite a lack of significant jewelry bling to speak of on the carpet.

Honoree, Rihanna, dazzled in a Stephan Rollande gown and Cartier diamond studs – earning the respect of the crowd and presenter, Iman, for riding the tide of public sentiment after her high-profile beating from former boyfriend Chris Brown.Onwards, girlfriend!

Fellow honoree, Amy Poehler, followed suit in basic diamond studs that didn’t outshine her metallic sheath by Stella McCartney (also honored). And Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi showed off her baby bump with a little gold glam (most likely from her own jewelry line).

I’m loving the sleek Serena Williams style with heavy bangs and diamond cuffs – and while I prefer a brunette Catherine McPhee, her onyx and diamond deco drops from Bochic are to die for.Nice work.

The winner for me in the ‘notsomuch’ department had to be Miss Gayle King in a statement necklace that didn’t need her sequined belt’s competition.Less is more when you’ve got such a wow piece taking center stage, right?
