When BVLGARI held a star-studded celebration of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry collection, Julianne Moore absolutely stole the show in Taylor’s famed emerald and diamond necklace. Halle Berry’s engagement ring is set with an eye-popping square-cut emerald and round side diamonds. Of late, we’ve seen Angeline Jolie and Victoria Beckham donning emerald accents for red carpet occasions. In short, emeralds are everywhere in Hollywood right now.
These dazzling green gemstones have been go-to accessories for redheads for years upon years. They complement ginger hair and pale skin like no other stone, but emeralds aren’t reserved only for those with fiery tresses. In fact, as Jolie has shown when wearing several emerald pieces from her own line of jewelry, they look just as enchanting against brunette hair as they do with red.
Emerald cocktail rings make amazing statement pieces, as both Jolie and Victoria Beckham have shown on more than one occasion. Whether you choose an oval, round, or square cut, you cannot go wrong with these dark green stones set in almost any ring.
And rings and necklaces aren’t the only places you’ll see gorgeous emerald settings. Among others, Uma Thurman’s been snapped with her blond locks swept up to make way for a pair of dazzling chandelier emerald earrings. With larger, more colorful earrings trending for 2015, you can be sure to see more of these on the red carpet in the future.
While emerald green was the “it” color for many fashion houses back in 2013, the stone itself has a timeless appeal that never goes out of style. Whether you’re wearing a simple pair of studs for a more subdued look or you really want to wow a crowd at a gala event, consider the stones that gorgeous and fashion-forward celebrities have been wearing since the golden days of cinema.
