Few events on the Hollywood calendar get more coverage than the Golden Globes. The 2017 extravaganza was no different, particularly when actress Blake Lively arrived and stole the show in a svelte Atelier Versace gown and a dazzling set of emerald green Lorraine Schwartz cuffs. The cuffs – set in gold and adorned with brilliant-cut white diamonds – totalled 300 carats, with each emerald weighing in at a staggering 150 carats. The impossible-to-miss bracelets were the standout piece of Lively’s accessories, although the matching diamond earrings, also by the US-founded jewellery designer, rounded off the red-carpet ensemble with a touch of panache. The total cost of the starlet’s jewels was US$7 million (HK$54.3 million).
Schwartz was also the brand of choice for other actresses during the award show, including Bollywood siren Priyanka Chopra and Olivia Culpo. Other fans of the New York-based jewellery house are Beyoncé, Heidi Klum and Pharrell Williams, who have all donned various exquisite pieces in the past. Despite the hefty price tag, Lively’s look was unable to wrest bragging rights from actress Carrie Underwood, who attended the 2013 Grammys wearing a Jonathan Arndt diamond necklace. Comprising of 381 carats of diamonds, it was priced at an ice cool US$31 million.
