Earrings, Rings & Bracelets Win at Golden Globes

Diamonds in platinum are the rule

By Liz Smutko


Necklaces were practically shut out on the red carpet at the 2005 Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 16. Instead, earrings of all styles, right-hand rings and bracelets (often diamond-laden cuffs) were the big style winners.

Among earring styles, linear drops continued their year-long celebrity dominance, though chandelier earrings hung in despite predictions of their demise by the stylists who dress and bejewel celebrities. This year’s chandeliers at the Golden Globes were slimmer than last year’s versions. On-the-ear diamond earrings and smaller drops, as worn by Melina Kanakaredes, were seen also.

The earring, right-hand ring and bracelet combo looked to be the most popular – Marcia Cross and Teri Hatcher of “Desperate Housewives” wore, respectively, Erica Courtney long drop earrings, dainty bracelet and heavier ring, and a more sizable Harry Winston ensemble with diamond chandeliers and a wide cuff bracelet. Jennifer Garner chose on-the-ear diamond earrings, a diamond bangle and right-hand rings.

The only real deviation from the sea of bare necks was Debra Messing, who accented her black dress with a sizable black pearl necklace.

On Jan.13 and 14, Platinum Guild International hosted an event for jewelry stylists to coincide with the Golden Globes. It featured a wide selection of platinum jewelry from more than 35 jewelry houses, including Alan Friedman, Barbara Berk Designs, Chris Aire, Elara Diamonds, Erica Courtney, Hearts on Fire, Kwiat, Marc Lazar, Mark Schneider, Neil Lane, Orlanda Olsen, Peter Norman & Co., Richard Krementz Gemstones, Sarah Jordan (U.K.), Sheila Goldfinger and Suwa & Son (Japan).
