Hollywood, CA—It’s a new year and that means it’s time for jewelry to shine, both figuratively and literally. Awards season just kicked off, when all eyes are on the red carpet and the jewelry trends we see there. So far, if the Golden Globe Awards are any indication of trends on the rise, jewelers have a lot to smile about: after years (!) of bare necks and barely-there stud earrings, statement necklaces were the number-one trend of the evening, along with statement-making earrings. One of the evening’s standout looks was the not one but two Bvlgari platinum mega-necklaces that Gwyneth Paltrow piled on with her see-through gown. (Left, Getty Images).
As the 2020 awards season opened Sunday night with the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, here’s a look at the top trends and brands from the evening:
Multiple celebrities chose platinum jewelry from top houses: Cartier, Harry Winston, Tiffany & Co., and Fred Leighton, which specializes in estate pieces. Jennifer Aniston (below) wore platinum jewelry sourced from Fred Leighton: a 1950’s diamond double swag necklace and Art Deco ring with a pair shaped diamond, both by Cartier, and a 1920’s ring with a marquise diamond. Rooney Mara wore an antique twin ring with an old European cut diamond, also from Fred Leighton.
Charlize Theron, Jodie Comer, Ana de Armas, Gillian Anderson, Ansel Elgort, and Reese Witherspoon wore platinum jewelry from Tiffany & Co., Priyanka Chopra, Scarlett Johansson, Cynthia Erivo, and Gwyneth Paltrow wore platinum jewelry from Bvlgari.

Even the men got in on the act, so to speak: Brad Pitt wore 1920s era cufflinks with diamonds and white enamel from Fred Leighton, and the always-edgy Billy Porter wore platinum from Tiffany & Co.: a diamond riviere necklace with a pear-shaped diamond pendant, a dragonfly brooch, a bracelet and a band ring.

Helen Mirren, Joey King, Lucy Boynton, Zoey Deutsch, and Rachel Weisz wore Harry Winston, and Annabelle Wallis and Glenn Close wore platinum jewelry from Cartier.
But the show wasn’t all about major jewelry from major houses. Three well-known brands were represented at the event; pieces your customers can have for their own collections. Jewelry from Hearts On Fire, Forevermark, and Mémoire was chosen by multiple celebrities, both for the awards ceremony and for the various after-parties that are as much a place to see and be seen as the main event.
Four celebrities wore jewelry from Forevermark and/or brand partners. Actress and nominee Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) wore long drop earrings, diamond eternity rings, and a two-stone diamond ring from Forevermark and stackable diamond bangles from its Black Label collection.
