In terms of jewelry, the Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet on Sunday resembled more of a Dîner en Blanc event then it did a major entertainment industry celebration. There was so much white it was blinding.
|Naomi Watts in Bulgari's signature Serpenti diamond necklace.|
Colorless diamonds with white gold and platinum was by far the leading trend on the red carpet Sunday. Very few bold statements as well, as classic, understated styles were the norm.

Colored gemstones and yellow gold were near invisible. This is unusual considering that the trend in recent years had been leaning well toward colored gems, colored diamonds and yellow gold.

Of course the big jewelry houses adorned the biggest stars and made the biggest splash. Jessica Chastain sparkled in white gold and diamond earrings and cuffs by Piaget. Naomi Watts may have the only bold statement of the evening wearing Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti diamond necklace. Julianne Moore was a consensus best dressed of the evening as she matched her metallic gown with two platinum and diamond bracelets and three rings by Chopard.
Fred Leighton also seemed to be the most visible brands on the red carpet Sunday. Usually this would mean a variety of color and styles but not this year. Only Anna Kendrick chose to wear understated ruby and diamond pendant earrings and ring.
|Kate Hudson in Forevermark Diamond Jewelry, including Forevermark Exceptional Diamonds by Slane Earrings, a Forevermark Diamond Ring set in platinum, and a Forevermark Diamond Line Bracelet set in platinum.|
Martin Katz, known for his diamond designs, although he had been venturing into color in recent years, adorned several stars Sunday but only Allison Janney went with something a bit different using fancy yellow diamonds, but still understated.
|Chrissy Teigen in $1 Million in diamonds by Harry Kotlar, including a radiant cut diamond ring and cushion cut pink and white diamond earrings.|
The De Beers Forevermark diamond brand, which personifies whiteness in its jewelry, adorned no fewer than three red carpet stars with layers of white diamond and metal jewelry (Kate Hudson, Giuliana Rancic and Frances O’Connor).
|Katie Cassidy in $1 Million of Diamonds by Harry Kotlar, including 8-carat round brilliant diamond stud earrings.|
Model Chrissy Teigen and actress Katie Cassidy both looked stunning, each wearing more than $1 million of understated (believe it or not) jewelry by Harry Kotlar.
Montblanc and Jaeger-LeCoultre helped dress several men in their timepieces and Montblanc added cufflinks for at least two more men walking the red carpet. Hip Hop artist Common sported a carved moonstone elephant and diamond jabot by Fred Leighton.

However, the highlight among those wearing watches was Diane Kruger who looked stunning in a Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Art Deco timepiece.
