8 Fantastic Earrings from the 2018 SAG Awards

While there were a few beautiful pairs set with white diamonds, our favorites came in color.

Kristen Bell was the first person to ever host the SAG Awards. She changed outfits a total of four times, ending the evening in another black dress with these platinum, diamond and jade earrings by Lorraine Schwartz as well as a platinum ring from the designer with carved emerald, black onyx and diamonds.
Los Angeles--Color returned to the red carpet at the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

After wearing all black at the Golden Globe Awards as a statement of solidarity and in support of those who have come forward as victims of sexual harassment and assault, many actresses went back to wearing color Sunday night.

Reese Witherspoon, one of the leaders of the Time’s Up movement, wore a dark green dress and paired it with emerald jewelry, while “GLOW” star Alison Brie went red with a multi-colored sequined thunderbolt, topping it off with a dazzling pair of colored gemstone drop earrings.

Overall, the jewelry was fairly minimal, which isn’t unusual for this ceremony.

Sandwiched between the Golden Globes and the Oscars, the SAG Awards, which are selected by the actors themselves and honor work in both TV and movies, are known for being simpler and shorter.

Rings and earrings were mostly what attendees donned Sunday night and, while there were a couple beautiful pairs set with diamonds, our favorites came in color. And, of course, there were still plenty of Time’s Up pins on display.

See below for the eight pairs of earrings from the 2018 SAG Awards that our editors liked best.

The one-of-a-kind earrings are 18-karat gold set with pink tourmaline, fire opal and diamond pavé. She also wore a one-off ring from the designer that is 18-karat gold, sunstone, pink tourmaline and diamond pavé.

Another of our favorite white diamond looks of the night came courtesy of Kate Hudson, who paired her pink and black heart-dotted dress (not a favorite among red carpet critics) with Forevermark diamond ear cuffs set in 18-karat white gold (total carat weight 6.91) and a Cluster Shield ring from the brand (not pictured), also in 18-karat white gold with 3.40 carats of diamonds.
