Earrings, Rings & Bracelets Win at Golden Globes
Necklaces were practically shut out on the red carpet at the 2005 Golden Globe Awards, held Jan. 16. Instead, earrings of all styles, right-hand rings and bracelets (often diamond-laden cuffs) were the big style winners.
Among earrings styles, the linear drop earring continued its year-long celebrity dominance, though the chandelier earrings is still hanging in, despite predictions of its demise by the stylists who dress and bejewel celebrities. This year's chandliers were slimmer, and more often showcased colored gemstones than diamonds Eva Longoria of "Desperate Housewives" wore diamond-and-emerald drops. Smaller on-the-ear diamond earrings were also seen.
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 diamonds earrings, a line bracelet and right-hand ring.
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 its event for jewelry stylists to coincide with the Golden Globes, featuring a wide selection of platinum jewelry from more than 35 jewelry houses including Alan Friedman, Chris Aire, Elara Diamonds, Erica Courtney, Hearts on Fire, Kwiat, Marc Lazar, Neil Lane, Peter Norman & Co. and Sheila Goldfinger, as well as newcomers to the awards show arena including: Barbara Berk Designs, Richard Krementz Gemstones, Sarah Jordan (U.K.), Marc Schneider, Orlanda Olsen and Suwa & Son (Japan).
