Golden Globes 2020

The 77th annual Golden Globes kicked off the awards season on Sunday 5thJanuary, and the Los Angeles red carpet was awash with jewellery.

Stars glittered in pieces by all the top jewellery houses and the common theme this year was one of understatement – think one statement piece rather than matching sets; ear climbers and huggies rather than chandelier drop earrings. The most popular piece for many was a diamond collar bone-hugging necklace or choker, often with a splash of colour, and photos of Jennifer Lopez in 146 carats of Harry Winston emeralds and diamonds are all over the internet.

Our favourites? Those stars who matched a simple diamond encrusted choker with multiple studs (see lead image).

Cynthia Eviro and Scarlett Johansson wore their Bulgari diamond chokers with a smattering of sparkly studs and huggies in their multiple piercings. Eviro’s necklace – a 40 carat sapphire surrounded by 56.65 carats of diamonds and sapphires has been valued at over $3 million but it was her ear story that won the show for us.

Charlize Theron wore a fabulously simple Blue Book Collection necklace boasting an emerald, sapphires and diamonds, her ear a gorgeously curated selection of simple diamonds.

Gillian Andersen wowed in a tiffany necklace which she wore down her back - a trend termed 'backlace' loved by us at Arlette Gold.

Olivia Colman, winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for The Crown, accessorised her Chopard dimaonds with a ring on her finger that read 'Equal representation for actresses 50:50'. A ring worn to symbolise solidarity to ERA5050, an industry led campaign which aims to see women represented on screen, in television and theatre in equal numbers to men. Buy yours here for just £3.50!

Finally to the men sporting a brooch on their lapels. A crystal rocketship for Elton John, a diamond butterfly for Ansel Elgort, a dragonfly for Billy Porter, an ornate gold Anagram brooch for Joah O’Connor and a slightly more understated white gold tie pin for Rami Malek. Nick Jonas even wore a brooch to an after party. I wonder if this trend will filter down to the high street?!
