Our favourites from the Golden Globes


This year's 75th Golden Globe Awards was nothing like a traditional Hollywood red carpet event. The event was a milestone in a battle against workplace abuse, sexual harassment, and equality. Attendees chose to wear all-black outfits as a protest and a powerful symbol of solidarity.


While celebrities were dressed in chic dark gowns, the sparkling array of statement pieces of jewellery shined on the red carpet. We couldn't help but notice that emeralds were the ultimate favourites among all the gemstones, knowing that green stone symbolises hope, positive change, and growth, which sympathises with the all-black statement. Jewellers this year were Harry Winston, Chopard, Lorraine Schwartz, De Beers Forevermark and Fred Leighton to name but a few.


We created the list of our favourite pieces:


First up Zoe Kravitz rocked the statement Colombian Emerald earrings weighting 105 carats set in black jade by Lorraine Schwartz. Along with 25 carat Colombian (no oil) Emerald ring.

Dakota Johnson wowed in Nirav Modi earrings from the Luminance collection. The earrings featured a cascade of different diamond shapes designed to reflect plays of light enhanced by brilliant-cut diamonds in Nirav Modi’s signature Pixie setting. The look was finished off by two bangles from the Embrace collection.

Jewels and designer gowns aside, we're sure 2018's Golden Globes was one that will go down in history. We look forward to seeing the jewels that sparkle through the coming awards season.
