While necklines went bare–for the most part–long earrings, emeralds, and statement gold stole the show at the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. And for those who were dying to see their favorite TV stars dripping in jewels, looks were pretty tame, outside of Sofia Vergara’s whopping $7 million worth of jewels by red-carpet favorite, Lorraine Schwartz. (See below–the majority of our jewelry highlights are from Ms. Schwartz!)
The long earrings worn by Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn, 30 Rock babe Jane Krakowski, and goddess Sofia Vergara were among the best looks of the show.
Emeralds continue to dominate the red carpet and deservedly so, as they look so stunning with so many gown colors and skin tones. We loved to see one of our favorite redheads, Christina Hendricks, deliver the green. And Maria Menounos and Sarah Hyland along with the sultry Vergara all looked gorgeous in statement emerald jewels.
And gold, which has been getting a major push from the World Gold Council’s ongoing “Love Gold” promotion, shined with bold looks worn by Jane Lynch and Padma Lakshmi. We hope to see more gold at the next awards shows, as it’s not only trending on the red carpet but in bridal and fashion jewelry at large. Go gold!
