Spring 2014 offers a plethora of opportunities for jewelry enthusiasts to catch a glimpse of the trends that will set the tone for the top styles consumers will seek throughout the year. The 71st annual Golden Globes were held during a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California to recognize the best performers in movies and television. Co-hosts of the event were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Many viewers recognize the duo from their skits on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and their political parodies on the "Weekend Update."
As many A-listers accepted their hard earned trophies, sophistication and elegance pervaded the atmosphere as stars donned gorgeous gowns and stately shoes. Without further adieu, we invite you to be enamored with the gems and jewels of the "2014 Golden Globes Jewelry Showcase."
Jennifer Lawrence's Black and White Bracelet Combo
To say that Jennifer Lawrence's ensemble was the talk of the town is an understatement; many fashionistas felt her Christian Doir gown was a slight nod to one of Princess Ariel's gowns in the animated Disney movie, "The Little Mermaid." Lawrence's choice in jewels was equally noteworthy- the star complimented her feminine dress with black and white diamond accented bracelets. Unfortunately, Lawrence encountered a mishap on the red carpet with one of her jewels; a diamond studded bracelet became unclasped and fell as she was chatting it up with Ryan Seacrest. Lawrence nonetheless handled the malfunctioning jewelry with grace.
Emilia Clark's Gold Cuff Bracelets
Many Golden Globe viewers also noticed Emilia Clark's chunky stacked gold cuff bracelets. The bracelets, created by Sydney Garber, added dramatic appeal to the celeb's tactfully designed dress. Clark also carried a light pink clutch that meshed well with the rest of her wardrobe.
Sofia Vergara's Floral Bib Style Necklace
The bib style necklace Sofia Vergara wore to the gala made a beautiful centerpiece when paired with the elegant black gown designed by Zac Posen. Vergara's necklace was set off by the sweetheart cut of the sophisticated dress. The blue and gold accented floral necklace was designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
Sarah Paulson's Delicate Stone Bracelet
Sarah Paulson's fairy like bracelet was designed by Irene Neuwirth. The bracelet radiated the delicate and feminine tastes that are sure to prevail in 2014 fashion trends. We also loved how Paulson's silver gown played as a delicate backdrop to her jewels.
Jessica Chastain's Diamond Necklace
Many pieces from the Bulgari "Heritage Collection" graced the red carpet on Sunday night. The most noticeable Bulgari gems were worn by Jessica Chastain. The double layer diamond necklace is an antique 1930 piece and accompanied a matching diamond ring, also from the Bulgari "Heritage Collection."
Emma Roberts' Turquoise Earrings and Diamond Engagement Ring
Emma Roberts sported turquoise chandelier style earrings created by Neil Lane to the night's events. The brilliant blue earrings popped out in contrast with the Lanvin designer dress she wore to the ceremony. However, the shiny new engagement ring Roberts unveiled caught headlines; Roberts and her longtime boyfriend, Evan Peters, were engaged over the holidays. However, it wasn't until the Golden Globes that anyone has been able to catch a glimpse of the ring.
