Jewels from the 2012 SAG Awards

The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards was held on 29 January in Los Angeles. The stars, of course, came out in their all their glamour and I’ve picked out some of the more noticeable jewels that went down the road carpet…

Jane Lynch (above) wore a large pair of amethyst and turquoise chandelier style earrings.

Octavia Spencer wore equally large chandeliers made with the mystical labradorite gemstone with its telltale blue flash. It enhanced the silver/oyster colour of her gown beautifully.

Sophie Vergara wore huge amethyst and diamond earrings that surely must have given her sore earlobes by the end of the night!

Julianna Margulies was one of the few that wore pearls, but wow, what pearls! The large ‘fireball’ pearls made a stunning statement.

Angelina Jolie wore vintage gold and onyx hoop earrings which made a change from her usual diamond studs...

…instead those single round diamonds seem to have moved over to Zoe Saldana’s ears to go with her white gown with jewelled collar!

Emma Stone’s yellow and white gold diamond spiral drops looked lovely and the golden tone went well with Emma’s auburn hair.

Jayma Mays large drops look like a blue chalcedony rimmed with diamonds.

Jessica Chastain wore sapphire surrounded by diamonds that were a lovely match for her blue dress.

Melissa Rauch and Mary Steenburgen both chose classic chandelier styles with diamonds.

Jenna Fischer wore a large pair of gemstone drops by an Indian designer. Information on the stones was non-existent but the focal stone could be rock crystal quartz or a transparent moonstone.

Regina King sparkled in these diamond and gem drops that complement her eyes. The gems look like andalusite.

Tina Fey wore linear diamond and onyx drops that went past her shoulders.

Maya Rudolph wore drop earrings of large ovals of moonstone rimmed with diamonds.

Viola Davis wore linear white drop earrings in a gold setting that looked fabulous with her white and gold gown. The white stone in these looks like white howlite which is more commonly seen dyed to imitate other stones - but I like it in its natural colour!

Fashionwise, gowns were for the most part long and flowing although some showed more structure than others. Strapless was a popular choice (again!) with halternecks and asymmetric necklines favourites as well.

Black and white made a strong appearance but the beige/flesh tones were less in evidence than at the Golden Globes earlier in the month. There was a smattering of blues, reds and greens as well. One stand out colour was “American Beauty Rose” that is best described as a fuchsia tinted pink - and was seen in vibrant and more subdued tones.

So what did you think of their choices? Any you'd like to own?

Thankyou for these lovely posts Annette. It was great to see the jewellery up close also the make-up as well.
Can't say I love the heavy earring drops; the dainty ones were just beautiful; but then I'm and "old chook" so think the young people would probably love the heavy styles.
Thankyou also for the post on Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery. Anything looked fabulous on Elizabeth; she was truly a beautiful woman and her collection suited her.
Kind Regards

It's been so fun looking at all the jewellery like this. I have to say, I think my ears would fall off with the weight of some of the styles!

By the way, unbeknownst to me, my mother purchased a lovely pair of YOUR earrings and wore them recently when we took her out to dinner. I'll send you the pic I took of her in the restaurant. ;o)
