Golden Globes: Jewelry Fashion

Kristina Guerrero Golden GlobeRicky Gervais might be stealing headlines in the post-Golden Globe Award media blitz, but we're more interested in the fashion. Some amazing pieces of jewelry were worn by the hottest celebrities and in one case, lost by a celebrity.

Kristina Guerrero from the E! network wore Christian Tse jewelry to Hollywood after parties. In our opinion, she looked absolutely stunning!

In other jewelry news Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez chose Harry Winston pieces, Megan Fox and Julia Ormond went with Lorraine Schwartz, and Eva Longoria sported Neil Lane earrings, to name a few.

In an interesting and downright frightening fashion emergency from the Golden Globes, Mad Men starlet Christina Hendricks lost an $850,000 bracelet by Chopard! Luckily an event employee discovered the bracelet and held on to it. When Hendricks tried to put the bracelet back on, the clasp wouldn't work and she had to give it to her publicist for safe keeping. Luckily, this is a happy ending to what could have been a nightmare!

For a full roundup of fashion news from the Golden Globes check out WhoWhatWear's, What They Wore 2011 Golden Globes blog post. They've got a full list of the entire ensembles Hollywood stars were seen in.
