And the Golden Globe for Best Jewel Goes To…

Ruth Negga, Blake Lively, Zazie Beetz and Isabelle Huppert were just a few of the starlets who kicked off awards season with a bang.

This Fred Leighton cuff, featuring a Gemfields Mozambican ruby, graced the wrist of Ruth Negga at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards.
Los Angeles--Only a few actors, producers, directors and writers can leave the Golden Globe Awards with a trophy in hand, but many more have the opportunity to create iconic jewelry moments on the red carpet.

Actresses who attended the 74th edition of the awards, held last night in Los Angeles, were game for the challenge.

The choker proved that, despite much speculation, it isn’t going anywhere. Actress Zazie Beetz had one of the best jewel moments of the night in her Selim Mouzannar version, while Michelle Williams pared down the trend to its simplest form, a black velvet bow, to elegant effect.

Red-carpet queen Lorraine Schwartz bejeweled several celebrities, per usual, but none as well as Blake Lively, who, in National Jeweler’s opinion, stole the entire show in her matching gold and emerald cuffs.

Below, we recount the Golden Globe looks that were contenders for Best Jewels. 

“Atlanta” actress Zazie Beetz sported a Selim Mouzannar choker and earrings on the red carpet. 

Blake Lively was at the Globes to support husband Ryan Reynolds, who was nominated for “Deadpool,” but the actress stole the show with her matching emerald Lorraine Schwartz cuffs.
