Colour on the carpet: Golden Globes

Sunday 6 January saw the kick-off of awards season with the 76th Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Sandberg.

Mahershala Ali’s Zambian emerald signet-style ring by Kimberly McDonald was the perfect accompaniment to his Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a motion picture. Mahershala’s striking Gemfields emerald appeared on the red carpet, awards stage and at after-parties, as he celebrated his win in style.

With a plethora of colour on the carpet this year, the Globes could not have been further from last year’s blackout, with a number of A-list actresses also championing colour on the carpet. Earrings were the jewellery item of choice with statement, chandelier style options dominating. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Saoirse Ronan, Jodie Comer, Octavia Spencer all opted for emeralds; Patricia Clarkson and Nicole Kidman matched the red carpet in rubies and Jessica Chastain went all-out in a multi-coloured style. Other nods to colour came in the shape of rings, with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Octavia Spencer teaming their earrings with complementing emerald rings, whilst Charlize Theron chose an emerald ring against a backdrop of diamonds. Jessica Chastain chose a ruby ring to pair with her multi-coloured earrings and other multi-coloured confections included Julianne Moore’s bracelet and Allison Janney’s necklace.
