Christina Hendricks and the Golden Globe Gaff

Losing important or expensive jewelry is every woman’s worst nightmare. Not the ‘Lindsay Lohan’  way of losing jewelry (e.g. conveniently forgetting to return the loaner in your purse) – but the good old fashioned ‘I accidently flushed my engagement ring down the toilet’ brand of losing.

Enter Mad Men maven, Christina Hendricks, who lived out the horror at the Golden Globes when she lost an $850,000 diamond Chopard loaner bangle during her walk down the red carpet. When the ravishing red head realized her blingy bangle was MIA, she frantically started asking,

“Have you seen a diamond bracelet? I’ve lost one that looks like this,” pointing to the one sparkly bracelet still fastened to her wrist, according to the New York Post.

At that point, Christina did what any reasonable woman would do. She high-tailed it outta there to retrace her steps. Thankfully an event worker recovered it and handed it back to the star.

A representative from Chopard confirmed she wore a total of 200 (only?!) carats of their diamonds for the show. In addition to the lost and found bracelet, the other one was a 49-carat emerald and Marquis-cut diamond bracelet, also set in platinum.

Wish I would have seen that during the red carpet coverage. Note to E! – we are paying attention!!

All’s well that ends well in Christina’s case. But not all of us are so lucky.

It’s like cuting yourself off from that third martini – it’s not a lot of fun, but you’ll thank yourself in the morning.
