Angelina Jolie's Most Spectacular Sparklers
GREEN WITH ENVY
has had her share of jaw-dropping red carpet moments, but few were more talked about than her unbelievable 115-carat Colombian emerald earrings (and matching 65-carat ring) at the 2009 Academy Awards. Designed by Lorraine Schwartz, they offset her eyes – and launched a wave of copycats.
Robert Procop (yep, the same one who designed her engagement ring) created another pair of emerald-cut sparklers worn by Angie at the 2010 N.Y.C. premiere of The Tourist. The pale green tablet earrings were the perfect complement to her white wrap dress.
At the 2008 Golden Globes, the actress played up her retro-chic hair and makeup with vintage-feeling Bochic earrings, bracelets and a pendant set in gold with delicate stones and oozing Old Hollywood glam.
Her plunging white satin gown at the 2004 Academy Awards was accessorized with a multistrand (and megawatt) H. Stern diamond necklace and simple studs.
When Angelina won her Oscar in 2000, her glamorous gothic hair and dress left critics unimpressed, but her Art Deco-style chandelier earrings and link bracelet were an uncontested smash.
She returned to her standby gem – emeralds – for the New York Film Critics Circle awards in January 2012. The oversize pendant and matching earrings were standout pieces against her simple blouse-and-top ensemble.
Forgoing expected precious gems for something a little funkier, Angelina accented her supersexy halter gown at 2012’s Screen Actors Guild awards with vintage House of Lavande hoops and a cuff for a sleek ’70s vibe.
GO WITH THE GLOW
Though she hardly needed any extra sparkle at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, the pregnant-with-twins star revved up her moss-green gown with yellow-gold-and-diamond Bulgari jewels.
Procop has called Angelina’s style “classic” – which she exemplifies with these super-simple (yet stunning) Lorraine Schwartz diamond studs, worn to this year’s Golden Globes.
OH YEAH, THAT RING ...
On April 13, Procop confirmed that he had worked with to design a “perfect” engagement ring for the actress. Appearing to be an emerald cut of more than 10 carats, the jeweler said in a statement that the ring was “a diamond of the finest quality … cut to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina’s hand.” It’s also conflict-free – perfect for Jolie, a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador.
