SAG Awards: Diamonds Abundance and Classic Elegance

The 13th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards ceremony was a further test case for the impact of the recent public discussion on Hollywood’s A-list celebrities. With Tinsel Town and one of its major studios, Warner Brothers, voicing criticism of the diamond industry, last night it was a display of confidence in the value of diamonds.

Hundreds of carats worth many millions of dollars were seen on the red carpet, as noted celebrities had no qualms being seen with diamonds, leaving the issue to be judged on fashion merits alone. Cate Blanchett was a focal point, donning a rose cut Diamond Indian pendant necklace featuring more than 100 carats of rose-cut Diamonds, along with a pair of 2 carat antique mine cut Diamond stud earrings by Fred Leighton.

Helen Mirren, the night’s winner for ‘Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role’ for her performance in “The Queen”, walked down the red carpet wearing Chopard jewelry, including a 25 carat diamond bracelet, 15 carat diamond hoop earrings, a 29 carat diamond brooch, and an oval diamond watch.
