This year’s celebrity jewelry at the 2016 Emmys definitely had us turning heads! Sofia Vergara added some edge to her outfit with a slithering snake bracelet/ring, while Kristen Bell looked lovely in a statement bracelet. Sarah Hyland, Sarah Paulson, and Tracee Ellis Ross accessorized with some major earring bling, and Sophie Turner pulled off chic elegance perfectly with a gold choker necklace.
This year’s Oscars 2016 jewelry looks were a refreshing mix of both classic and modern. Whoopi Goldberg matched her black gown with a unique sea-inspired bauble (what a statement!), while Sofia Vergara kept it classic with a pair of chandelier earrings. Naomi Watts completed her mermaid look with a gorgeous statement necklace, while Saoirse Ronan pulled off the mismatched earrings trend flawlessly.

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. Shop for your own pair of gemstone earrings at Jewelry.com.
Diamond Earrings – Diamond earrings were in, and the more whimsical the better! Sofia Vergara matched her gold gown with a unique pair of diamond statement earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. Julia Louis Dreyfus showed off an amazing oval-shaped Chopard pair. Treat yourself to a new pair of diamond earrings at Jewelry.com.

All of the top Emmy jewelry trends for 2013 are tastefully covered in an earlier post by my colleague Mandy Tracy. Now it’s time to get down and dirty. Here are my Top Ten Emmy Jewelry Moments of the night for your drooling (and dishing) pleasure.
Don’t let the jewelry wear YOU, sister. It’s a stunning $2.5 million Colombian emerald and diamond piece (from Lorraine Schwartz no less), but the prom queen hair puts you in the Kathy Ireland ‘Less Is More’ Red Carpet Correspondent Hall of Fame.
Here’s an even better look at Zooey Deschanel’s gob-stopper-sized tourmaline ring by Chanel. Team Mani-Cam! Who’s with me?
8. Padma Goes for the Gold
Padma Lakshmi gave the jewelry gawkers our first surprise (and notable trend) of the night: classic, sculptural, yellow gold jewelry. I loved her elegant swirl earrings and Wonder Woman-inspired cuff, both from Robert Lee Morris. Gorg!
7. Sarah Hyland Goes Green
I’m a sucker for an emerald statement. And while Christina Hendricks and Mayim Bialik scored some great green, Sarah Hyland really caught my attention with this head-to-toe look from Lorraine Schwartz, including 60-carat(!) Colombian emerald drop earrings.
Kermit, eat your heart out.
6. The Jewelry Credit Catastrophe
Live Tweeting the Emmy Red Carpet with the #emmyjewelry crowd is like joining a chorus of snarky sophisticates. We “jewelerati” love our bling. We love our champagne-infused red carpet drinking games. But we HATE HATE HATE it when jewelry credits get ignored.
While Ryan Snorecrest is our favorite target, this year, How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders took first prize for (gasp!) not only forgetting whose jewelry she was wearing (Irene Neuwirth!)….but owning up to it on live television in front of millions. No words.
PS – For those at home keeping score, our hashtag made the top trend list during the E! red carpet telecast. Join us next time!
5. Carrie Underwood
Ms. Underwood’s go-to jewelry guru Jonathan Arndt didn’t disappoint this year, scoring carats a kimbo for Country Barbie. And major props from the statement-necklace-starved jewelerati. That’s $18 million worth of ice and over 180 carats all told for those of you playing at home.
4. Oh No You Didn’t, Lena
It’s not a jewelry moment. It’s well…just a moment of sorrow I have to share. I love GIRLS. I love Lena Dunham. I love that she unabashedly wears ghastly jumpsuits, grandma underwear and an extra 25 pounds with nary an ounce of self-consciousness – both in real-life and on her show.
But I just can’t abide this, sister. You can do better.
Canary Island has nothing on this Tweety Bird-inspired ensemble from Ana Farris. But just when I was about to unleash a Joan Rivers-inspired fashion rant, this yellow-bellied damsel in distress did a little red-carpet spin to reveal….
2. My Claire Danes ‘Cry Face’
She’s a class act, that Claire. And as the belle of this particular Awards Show ball, I looked to her to knock it out of the park. But like other A-listers before her (Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie, I’m talking to you), she just doesn’t get that we jewelry hounds don’t want elegant understatements.
We don’t want studs, or dainty drops or yet a another (yawn!) diamond bracelet – no matter how lovely.
We want a jewelry statement like Gwenyth Paltrow’s Louis Vuitton bird earrings or Michelle William’s deco Fred Leighton stunner.
Turning it up a notch doesn’t mean you have to go gaudy (Maria Menounous, are you taking notes?). It just means you show up to occasion. This is the Emmys. Not a family wedding.
1. Sofia, Sofia, Sofia
Sofia Vergara’s Vera Wang/Lorraine Schwartz combination does it again. This time, she brought $7 million of bling to the red carpet, including 100-carat unheated ruby, sapphire and emerald earrings, a 21-carat Asscher-cut diamond ring, and a 40-carat Colombian emerald and rose-cut diamond ring.
Big. Deep. Breath.
Liz Taylor is somewhere up there smiling over her martini shaker . If you’re a man, you’re almost crying with delight at the sight of this superstar. If you’re a woman, you’re…well…crying for other reasons.
Who made your ‘to-die’ and your ‘do-over’ Emmy fashion lists? Weigh in with your thoughts, jewelry hounds!
The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired Sunday night, bringing us a red carpet swarming with new jewelry and fashion trends as well as some expected disappointments. Read on for the top five trends of the night.
Normally the morning after, we dish on the shoulder-sweeping earrings or Wonder Woman cuffs that have made frequent red carpet appearances over the years. As those trends either take a back seat or simply become the norm, we welcome some new and exciting trends to add to your jewelry box.
Finally! Hollywood has put a ring on it! And in the form of big, chunky diamonds and gemstone cocktail rings. Primetime TV’s finest rocked some cocktail rings that were large and in charge.
Zooey Deschanel matched an icy blue J. Mendel gown with an equally icy blue tourmaline ring by Chanel.
Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland was head-to-toe in emerald, 2013’s Color of the Year, pairing a green Caroline Herrera gown with Lorraine Schwartz green bling.
E! Red Carpet Hostess Guiliana Rancic rocked a $1 million diamond ring by Forevermark that would make even a Kardashian jealous!
Jessica Lange wore a black Escada gown accompanied with a Martin Katz cocktail ring. Kata Mara was sans any jewelry except for a large Irene Neuwirth ring that matched her J. Mendel gown. Other cocktail ring sitings included Sofia Vergara (obvi), Jane Krakowski, Christina Hendricks, Taylor Schilling
Whether it was the jewels or the gown, emerald was certainly the color of the night (Appropriate since the color gods at Pantone named it Color of the Year for 2013).
Standout looks that had us green with envy were Sarah Hyland (as mentioned before), Anna Chlumsky in Badgley Mischka, Lena Dunham in Prada, and Nancy O’dell.
Christina Hendricks looked ravishing, pairing a black down with emerald earrings and cocktail ring.
Sofia Vergara brought the bling once again with a Vera Wang gown paired with Multi color earrings and green ring by Lorraine Schwartz.
Anna Faris wore a cheerful yellow gown with a Fred Leighton green lizard brooch crawling up her back. Brooke Burke wore eye-catching jade earrings by Katerina Maxine.
Yellow gold statement pieces continue to trend on the red carpet and are a perfect accessory for the fall.
Girls actress Allison Williams paired a blue Ralph Lauren gown with glowing Fred Leighton gold jewels.
Taylor Schilling rocked a white Thakoon paired with Jorge Adeler jewels, including a citrine and gold cocktail ring.
Nashville’s Connie Britton paired a blue and gold Naeem Khan number with gold stacked bangles by Cathy Waterman.
Padma Lakshmi wore huge gold earrings and gold cuff by Robert Lee Morris that paired well with her Kaufman Franco gown.
Other golden jewelry moments include Cobie Smulders (who couldn’t remember who designer her jewelry – YIKES), Jane Lynch and Merritt Wever.
Ladies in Red
While not a jewelry trend, we do pay respect to red carpet color trends that could inspire your own jewelry box collection.
Red frocks included Sofia Vergara, Morena Baccarin, Carla Gugino in Georges Chakra, Heidi Klum in Versace, Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang, Kelly Osbourne in Jenny Packham, Linda Cardinelli in Donna Karan Atelier and more.
Babes in Blue
Every shade of blue made an appearance on the red carpet, capping off a month of sapphire birthstone bliss.
Tina Fey left black at home and rocked a bright blue Narciso Rodriguez gown. Deschanel sisters, Emily and Zooey both wore light pastel gowns by Houghton and J. Mendel, respectively. Jane Krakowski, Jessica Pare, Allison Williams, Maria Menounos, and Guiliana Rancic also wore standout blue gowns.
And leave it to a country girl to be the only notable celeb rocking a diamond necklace. Carrie Underwood paired a purple Romona Keveza gown with Johnathon Arndt jewels. Guess we will have to wait for the Country Music Awards for our next diamond necklace moment. Oh well.
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!
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!
Katy Perry’s dress at the Smurfs movie premiere in New York yesterday almost stole the show from the little blue guys themselves!
Sporting a bedazzled Smurfette corsette designed by The Blondes, a smurf manicure and blue Louboutins – what else does the voice of the world’s most famous female smurf need?
How about sapphires? Seems the like the smurfiest choice, right?
Looks like Ms. Perry took the blue bling to heart, wearing a pair of sapphire button earrings and what looks like a sapphire, diamond and gold bangle bracelet (still looking for designer credits…anyone know?)
The other jewelry highlight of the night was violet vixen, Sofia Vergara, in a a gorgeous Missoni gown, turquoise earrings and elbow-deep bangles in every shade of purple – all by Lorraine Schwartz!
Papa Smurf? Eat your heart out!!!
