The Golden Globes set the Jewellery Tone for 2019
Celebs shined in dazzling diamonds and scintillating chockers
The Golden Globes is the first award ceremony of the year, crowning January with glitz and glamour. The show may be gone but the jewellery is certainly not forgotten. It elegantly set the tone for 2019 award shows and, most importantly, everyday fashion.
Necklaces took centre stage and diamonds dominated. The most exquisite showstopping necklace was adorned by Lady Gaga. This piece, the Tiffany Aurora Necklace, was custom made for her and was the most befitting jewellery to mark her latest achievement, ‘A Star is Born’. Tiffany & Co’s creation comprised of 300 diamonds, with the pinnacle pear-cut diamond of 20 carats.
This year, celebs did not shy away from decadence and Lady Gaga was no exception with her matching statement earrings and not one, but three bracelets. And, she was not the only one to ensure that her wrists were sufficiently wrapped in layers of diamonds. The message was… this year accessorising is in, from earrings to rings and everything in between. More is more as long as it’s elegant.
Even though the jewellery was decadent, it was still sophisticated and chic. The dresses were simple yet beautiful and were elevated by diamonds, with a few splashes of colour in the form of gems. The trend the night so beautifully set was simple, tasteful, and conservative dresses iced with the classic glamour that only diamonds and select gems can provide.
Isla Fisher and Dakota Fanning followed suit of more is more, with their large yet regal detailed feminine diamond necklaces with matching diamond earrings.
The earrings that graced the red carpet were either long drops or glamourous large stud-like earrings. Lupita Nyong’o and Julia Roberts chose to wear their diamonds in the form of cascading large hanging earrings but in line with the trend, this was not their only jewellery.
The jewellery styles ranged greatly this Golden Globes, from traditional pieces to modern motifs. The chocker made its debut on many a celeb’s neck and entered even further into everyday wardrobes since the award show. Rachel Weisz wore a Cartier 18 carat chocker composed of diamonds, coral and onyx set in white gold. Kiki Layne looked regal in a Bulgari pink gold Serpenti choker with an Egyptian goddess aesthetic. Yvonne Strahovski took the chocker into abstract territory with her sculpted lightening bolt diamond necklace by Lorraine Schwartz. Constance Wu proved that the chocker could be the pinnacle feminine piece with her Messika chocker with its delicate diamonds and pear hanging drop.
When colour was present, it mainly came in the form of emeralds. This rich green colour brought old school Hollywood glamour to the carpet. Catherine Zeta-Jones wore over 200 carats of Colombian emeralds in the form of her Lorraine Schwartz earrings and rings. Michelle Yeoh wore the famous emerald ring seen worn by her character in ‘Crazy Rich Asian’. Saiorse Ronan mixed diamonds with emeralds in her Chopard earrings that complimented the sparkle of her sky blue eyes.
The take-home? Jewellery has never been so prominent as seen in this year’s Golden Globes. Expect 2019 to be the year of adornment, diamonds and divergent styles.
