Any red carpet is a glittering showcase of jewelry trends, but the SAG awards this year were a particularly sparkly affair. Or, perhaps it just seemed that way, given the current economic climate. The thing is that, for the most part, celebrities don’t actually own the jewels they wear on the red carpet. They borrow them, sometimes millions of dollars worth.
This year, actresses Lea Michele (of Glee) and Natalie Portman were both hooked up with classic gems by the illustrious Tiffany & Co. Michele wore nearly $1 million in Tiffany baubles, including a platinum pear-shaped diamond ring, platinum lever-back earrings, and several diamond studded bracelets. Portman wore $2 million white and yellow diamond earrings and a couple of diamond bangles.
Not everyone was outfitted by the house of Tiffany, however. Mila Kunis wore Cartier, and Clair Danes wore Fred Leighton. For the most part, classic, iconic styles were favored over edgier, more contemporary looks.
