Did you happen to catch last night’s 75th annual Golden Globe Awards? The show kicked off awards season in a major way, highlighting big trends and an even bigger message. In case you missed it, the night’s theme followed the Time’s Up initiative — a rally to combat harassment and inequality. Nearly all in attendance dressed in black to express their solidarity in the fight for justice. And lucky for us, the all-black attire made their jewelry pop brighter than ever before!
Our favorite looks came from Millie Bobby Brown, Issa Rae, and Alison Brie. We noticed trends of draping bows, embellished gowns, and delicate lace designs, just to name a few. And as for the jewelry, we saw tons of diamonds set in white gold. Last night’s show previewed some of the year’s hottest designs and gave many cues on what to stock in your showcases.
Here are a few notable Golden Globe jewelry trends–
Diamonds, Diamonds, Diamonds
Diamonds were the most popular stone to appear on the red carpet this year. And it’s no wonder, since the all-black apparel allowed diamonds to shimmer in the spotlight. We even saw black diamonds too, like in Kerry Washington’s stunning freeform earrings. Allison Brie’s bold diamond collar dazzled as Viola Davis’ layered diamond necklaces glittered with distinction and elegance. I don’t know about you, but we’re delighted that diamonds were one of the top Golden Globe jewelry trends.
Art Deco Designs
Interestingly enough, Art Deco-inspired earrings turned up as prevailing Golden Globe jewelry trends. A-listers like Reese Witherspoon and Sharon Stone donned vintage starburst designs while Sadie Silk sported gorgeous geometric drop earrings.
In accord with the lifestyles of the rich and famous, it’s a no-brainer that celebs would wear opulent statement jewelry decked with carats upon carats of diamonds. We saw ladies like Dakota Johnson wearing diamond cluster waterfall earrings, while Mariah Carey and Catherine Zeta-Jones showed up in striking chandelier earrings.
Emerald green dominated the colored gemstone scene, ranking as one of the top Golden Globe jewelry trends this year. Stars like Zoe Kravitz, Issa Rae, Alexi Ashe, Pauletta Washington (and more) all wore the giant green gemstone. Even Eva Longoria, pregnant and glowing, wore enormous emerald-cut diamond drop earrings to the show.
Pretty in Pearls
Though considered a “safe” jewelry choice, classic pearls all but scream elegance and grace. Maggie Gyllenhaal’s fabulous station earrings were hard to miss, while Tracee Ellis Ross’ drop pearl earrings wonderfully adorned her warm, bright smile.
Did you see Mandy Moore’s ravishing red gemstone earrings? The rosy red stones synced perfectly with her scarlet lips and black and red gown. Moonstone even made its way to the red carpet, appearing to drip from model Barbara Meier’s ears.
