Jewelry gawking at the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight was a mixed bag of ‘ho-hum’ diamond highlights from the usual suspects and a smattering of show-stopping scene stealers!
Somebody must have sent the ‘wear red’ memo around Hollywood, because everyone from Lea Michele in marvelous Marchesa to Kate Winslet in an elegant Ellie Saab number showed up in every shade of scarlet.
And while that might make for a boring frock fest (there were no less than seven celebs in red at last count), it does bring with it some sartorial perks. Namely. Rubies.
Lea Michele sported some Lorraine Schwartz stunners, and E! Fashion Guru, Kellie Osbourne, was spotted in dangles and a cocktail ring in the rockin’ red gemstone.
Sapphires made a showing on comic genius, Amy Poehler, and Entertainment reporter, Maria Menounos in blingy Bulgari.
And mixed gems sparkled on Emmy host, Jane Lynch.
But it was Sofia Vergara’s Colombian emerald door-knocker earrings that sent the jewelry hunters into a frenzy during our Live Tweet session tonight (a shout out to my fab #emmyjewelry peeps!) Wowzers.
Others in the ‘jaw-drop’ category?
Anna Torv’s S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G statement earrings and Heidi Klum’s floral fabulosity – all by (of course) Lorraine Schwartz.
Elizabeth Moss’ swingin’ chandeliers (designer unknown)
And Friday Night Lights ingenue, Aimee Teegarden, rocked a unique earring look by Dana Rebecca.
Diamond divas included an understated Minka Kelly in Dior, Nina Dobrev in Neil Lane, Jayma Mays (also in Neil Lane), Taraji P. Hensen, and Julia Stiles (Forevermark).
And there was a ‘black & white’ mini trend worth mentioning on Gwynnie and Modern Family Emmy winner, Julie Bowen – both in Neil Lane.
So there you have it, jewelry hounds. Red, rubies, and rip-roarin’ earrings were the highlights this year.
And – as always – weigh in here with your rants and raves! Did I miss one of your favorite celebrity jewelry moments last night? Spill it!
