Awards season is positively packed this year. The 2024 Emmy Awards, delayed from September last year, just concluded today. And it’s hot off the heels of the Golden Globes, the Governors Awards, the Critics Choice. All this in little more than a week. The stars and celebrities gracing these events, however, seem amply prepared to turn out great looks back to back.
We’ve seen a lot of classic, timeless elegance. Perhaps it’s the influence of quiet luxury hitting the red carpet—with fewer outré choices this year. That sentiment seems to be carrying over to the stars’ choices of jewellery too.
Save for a handful of big, standout pieces—American jeweller Tiffany & Co. is on a roll this season, with Jean Schlumberger designs having a real carpet moment—the approach to jewels seems to be about the sum of parts rather than a single piece that steals the spotlight. Modest necklaces and earrings (well, relatively) complemented with rings, for example. And not always matching parure pieces from the same collection; see Lux Pascal, for one, who matched floral motif Fiorever earrings and rings with a winding Serpenti bracelet from Bulgari. The trend takeaway: more freedom, perhaps, to mix and match the pieces you already have and let the whole of the outfit speak for itself.
Here, Vogue Singapore‘s pick of the 18 best jewellery as seen at the 2024 Emmy Awards.
1 / 17
Selena Gomez had the stunner of the night: this Tiffany & Co. Bird on a Rock necklace in platinum and gold, decorated with diamonds and pink sapphires, and a centrepiece morganite that’s just over 35 carats.
2 / 17
Dior ambassador Elizabeth Debicki was fully decked out in creations by the Paris maison: a stack of gold and diamond Bois de Rose bracelets, earrings, and a velvet haute couture gown.
3 / 17
Everyone’s favourite on-screen nepo baby in scarlet Vivienne Westwood paired with Cartier high jewellery.
4 / 17
The hilarious Aubrey Plaza is one for a laugh. Her ‘proper’ jewels in this outlook are by American jeweller Effy, but that outsized pin on her Loewe dress could certainly count as statement hardware too.
5 / 17
Ricci channelled old world glamour through a Saint Laurent dress with a plunging neckline—perfectly placed to wear a sautoir necklace. Hers are by Martin Katz, and feature emeralds and diamonds.
6 / 17
Ali Wong took home the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series for her role in breakout series Beef—a first-time Emmy for Wong, and making her the first Asian actress to win in the category. She wore her bespoke Louis Vuitton dress with diamond earrings and a ring by Chopard.
7 / 17
The princess of the people and unofficial Irish ambassador wore her sculpted leather Louis Vuitton creation with diamond jewellery by sustainable and ethical brand Brilliant Earth.
8 / 17
There’s wrist candy, and then there’s ear candy. Brosnahan’s are courtesy of Parisian jeweller Rainbow K.
9 / 17
Lux Pascal wore a classic Oscar de la Renta gown, paired with Fiorever and Serpenti jewellery by Bulgari. But her most desirable arm candy might just be her brother Pedro Pascal.
10 / 17
Domingo is turning out to be one of the style MVPs this awards season. For the Emmys, he turned once more to a custom Louis Vuitton look worn with jewellery by Paris-based artisan Reza.
11 / 17
This is the second appearance of vintage Balmain on a major red carpet this year (Elle Fanning wore a champagne Balmain to the Golden Globes), paired with Cartier high jewellery.
12 / 17
Ortega, who’s fronted perfume and jewellery campaigns for the house of Dior, wore a tulle haute couture dress and a selection of jewellery from the brand’s Gem Dior and Rose Dior Couture collections.
13 / 17
Another appearance by French jeweller Reza, this time in the form of emerald and diamond pieces worn with an acid green dress by Gucci.
14 / 17
The Ted Lasso actress wore jewellery by Brilliant Earth. The standout: the white gold choker necklace dripping with diamonds.
15 / 17
Rosy custom Armani paired with Bulgari jewels.
16 / 17
Riley Keough and Priscilla Presley
Riley Keough and her grandmother Priscilla Presley rocked up to the Emmys both wearing Chanel outfits and jewellery.
17 / 17
Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson took some inspiration from the title of the film she’s in, The Colour Purple, with this custom Atelier Versace. On her ears, wrists and fingers, jewellery by Los Angeles label Simon G.
