2011 Emmy Awards Jewelry Roundup: Red, Rubies and Rip-Roarin’ Earrings

 

Jewelry gawking at the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight was a mixed bag of ‘ho-hum’ diamond highlights from the usual suspects and a smattering of show-stopping scene stealers!

 

 

Somebody must have sent the ‘wear red’ memo around Hollywood, because everyone from Lea Michele in marvelous Marchesa to Kate Winslet in an elegant Ellie Saab number showed up in every shade of scarlet.

And while that might make for a boring frock fest (there were no less than seven celebs in red at last count), it does bring with it some sartorial perks. Namely. Rubies.

 

Lea Michele sported some Lorraine Schwartz stunners, and E! Fashion Guru, Kellie Osbourne, was spotted in dangles and a cocktail ring in the rockin’ red gemstone.

Sapphires made a showing on comic genius, Amy Poehler, and Entertainment reporter, Maria Menounos in blingy Bulgari.

 

And mixed gems sparkled on Emmy host, Jane Lynch.

 

But it was Sofia Vergara’s Colombian emerald door-knocker earrings that sent the jewelry hunters into a frenzy during our Live Tweet session tonight (a shout out to my fab #emmyjewelry peeps!) Wowzers.

 

Others in the ‘jaw-drop’ category?

Anna Torv’s S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G statement earrings and Heidi Klum’s floral fabulosity – all by (of course) Lorraine Schwartz.

Elizabeth Moss’ swingin’ chandeliers (designer unknown)

 

And Friday Night Lights ingenue, Aimee Teegarden, rocked a unique earring look by Dana Rebecca.

 

Diamond divas included an understated Minka Kelly in Dior, Nina Dobrev in Neil Lane, Jayma Mays (also in Neil Lane), Taraji P. Hensen, and Julia Stiles (Forevermark).

And there was a ‘black & white’ mini trend worth mentioning on Gwynnie and Modern Family Emmy winner, Julie Bowen – both in Neil Lane.

 

So there you have it, jewelry hounds. Red, rubies, and rip-roarin’ earrings were the highlights this year.

And – as always – weigh in here with your rants and raves! Did I miss one of your favorite celebrity jewelry moments last night? Spill it!

The Jewelry Insider

February 14, 2011

While the whole “Lady Gaga arriving in a big egg” stunt felt a little (um) tired to me, the jewelry fashion was refreshingly fun at the 2011 Grammy Awards, with huge earrings, creative cuffs, statement rings, yellow gold and menfolk in layered looks ruling the night in the trend department.

Here are a few highlights to get the jewelry juices flowing…

I FINALLY had a 2011 lower-jaw-drop moment when I spotted this crazy cuff on Glee diva, Lea Michele. It’s by red carpet staple, Lorraine Schwartz, who is also responsible for my second favorite look of the night:

this yellow gold and diamond serpent cuff on Kim Kardashian.Yay!

I also have to applaud Miley Cyrus and Ciara for the winning the “More Is More” award. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so starved for over-the-top jewelry looks this year, but I was happy to see this much sparkle on these young stars.

 

Big earring looks dusted the sparkling shoulders of everyone from Cyndi Lauper to Snooki:

 

 

 

 

 

 

And as for the fellas? The usual suspects disappointed (Lil Wayne, Diddy) but Seal, Lenny Kravitz and Adam Lambert all rocked the layered necklace look that won the approval of the Twitter Crew (click here to review our fun-filled chat).

 

With so many folks getting in touch with their inner wacky (Gwenyth? What are you smoking, sister?) I’m sure the Oscars are going to feel like a quaint evening sipping tea by comparison. But I’m ready. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is a jewelry wasteland so far…. And I’m starving for more!
