Diamonds Go to the Awards Shows

The Golden Globes and the Grammys flash bright and colorful

Celebrities at the Golden Globes and the Grammys chose diamond jewelry that reflects several popular trends, reports the Diamond Information Center.

Large Diamond Pendants

At the Golden Globes, Catherine Zeta-Jones opted for a 50-ct. Asscher-cut diamond pendant by Fred Leighton. Halle Berry wore a 30-ct. blue diamond pendant by Harry Winston. Sharon Stone chose a diamond choker layered over an Edwardian diamond triangle pendant on a diamond chain by Neil Lane.

Fancy-Shaped Diamonds

Along with Berry’s pear-shaped blue diamond pendant, blue diamond ring and blue diamond earrings, Renée Zellweger and Lisa Kudrow flashed marquise diamond rings. Kristin Davis, Joan Rivers and several actors’ spouses appeared in diamond jewelry featuring pear and emerald shapes.

Colored Diamonds

Berry’s blue diamond suite included the ring shown on her left hand, featuring a 2.85-ct. fancy vivid blue diamond surrounded by pink diamonds from the Vivid Collection. Also at the Golden Globes, Megan Mullally sported a pink diamond, Faye Dunaway wore a fancy pink diamond ring and Joan Rivers wore a fancy intense yellow-and-white diamond suite. At the Grammys, yellow, white or black diamonds were popular, worn by Faith Hill, Ashanti, the Dixie Chicks and Aretha Franklin.

Among other trends in diamond jewelry at both awards shows were diamond bracelets in cuff, line and mesh styles. Dangling earrings in waterfall and other drop styles also continue to be popular.

At the Golden Globes, Halle Berry, with Eric Benét, flashes all three of the biggest diamond trends: a large pendant, fancy (pear) shapes, and colored diamonds (blue and pink).
