White was again the look on the red carpet, this time at the Screen Actors Guild Awards held Sunday in Los Angeles. However, yellow gold snuck into the all-white party that has so far typified the red carpet awards season for jewellery this year. Just like the recently held Golden Globes, white metals and diamonds reigned supreme.
The interesting thing is many of the outfits worn on the red carpet Sunday, unlike the Golden Globes, were bright and colourful.
Understated and elegant jewellery is also typical of the awards season and SAG did not stray at all. In fact, in this area it was even more conservative than at the Golden Globes a few weeks earlier.

However, the red carpet was most characterized by Reese Witherspoon displaying an elegant ensemble of more than $3.5 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds that included emerald-cut diamond drop earrings set in platinum, a 24-carat princess-cut diamond line bracelet set in platinum, and a cushion-cut pink sapphire & diamond cluster ring.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in an amethyst and rose-cut diamond scalloped cluster ring
and cushion-cut diamond drop earrings, all from Fred Leighton.
There were some understated hints of colour at the event. For example, Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore an amethyst and rose-cut diamond scalloped cluster ring, which was offset by cushion-cut diamond drop earrings. All of the jewellery was from Fred Leighton.
The biggest red carpet fashion show in the US, the Academy Awards or “Oscars,” is less than a month away. It’s the most glamorous and also the most fashion conservative event of them all. We’ll just have to wait and see if this understated and white theme continues; or if yellow gold and coloured gems make a comeback.
