There are many things to adore about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the awards show in which actors celebrate the work of other actors. And for this year’s 27th annual event, we were partial to the more theatrical looks that stars brought to the red carpet—or better yet home carpet—as they have during the 2021 awards season at large.
Regardless of whether our favorite stars were posing against a white wall or drenched across the pool steps (we see you, Kerry Washington), Hollywood’s finest celebrated their peers in their finest diamond jewels and baubles without hesitation. From Cynthia Erivo’s covet-worthy Forevermark look to Anya Taylor-Joy’s diamond-clad moment by Tiffany’s, here’s some of the best diamond jewelry looks the stars used to impress at the 27th SAG Awards:
Kerry Washington, who was nominated for female actor in a miniseries for Little Fires Everywhere, wore the most stunning purplish blue ensemble and matching headpiece. She posted a close-up of her diamond and sapphire ring from Bulgari, which also allowed her the chance to show off a nice, complementary touch—a gorgeous jewel-encrusted manicure.
His Schitt’s Creek TV character David Rose was lauded for creating bold, sometimes outlandish looks. But when it comes to the style of creator and star, Dan Levy, everything is always a bit more sophisticated and polished, and his look for the 2021 SAG Awards was no exception. Levy stunned in a head-to-toe cream ensemble, topped off by a Cartier diamond and sapphire brooch in the shape of a flower.
The queen of chess was the queen of diamonds (a title we certainly hope is up for grabs) for her special, big win night at the SAG Awards. She wore a delicious diamond necklace, large diamond studs and multiple diamond rings, all from Tiffany & Co.People reports the necklace was 26 carats and featured over 70 mixed-cut diamonds, and one of her special rings was an emerald cut that weighed in at a whopping 7 carats.
Viola Davis, who was nominated and of course won for best female actor in a leading role for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, rang in spring with this stunning chartreuse green gown from Louis Vuitton. She wore sparkly Forevermark 32.78 carat diamond chandelier earrings that further accentuated her look’s sparkle. And you better believe the star also iced out her fingers with a 7.24 carat cushion cut yellow diamond ring from Forevermark—a showstopper with tons of rarity to say the least.
Royal blue just might be the color of the season, and Mindy Kaling’s SAG look just solidified that. Kaling, who presented at the awards, wore a ring and earrings from Harry Winston’s Starburst collection. The stunning drop earrings feature 4.21 carats worth of pavé diamonds—all encrusted along three stars.
The Flight Attendant star and executive producer nominee Kaley Cuoco made the ultimate statement with her Messika Paris diamond wing earrings. The sparkling jewels illuminated her face and were arguably the most coveted red carpet-from-home earring of the night, and really stood out with her off-the-shoulder hot pink gown and slick up-do.
Actor and presenter and all around badass, Cynthia Erivo’s awards show looks are always highly anticipated; her SAG Awards look was expectedly next-level, in part due to diamond pieces from Forevermark, including a show-stopping radiant cut eternity diamond ring. Erivo also shimmered in five other diamond rings which wowed against her muted cream palette, as well as 2.56 carat diamond arc earrings.
Emma Corrin, who was nominated for her ensemble role in The Crown, wore a stunning ’90s-inspired look complemented with Cartier jewels. Corrin wore diamond-drop earrings, which made a shining statement under her bob and curtain bangs.
Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan stunned in De Beers Lea 4.86 carat diamond earrings, which perfectly stood out against her black lace mock neck gown. Of course, when you’re wearing earrings this gorgeous, it’s important to wear your hair back so that they’re on full display. The star also opted for two De Beers rings: the Aura Fancy 4.54 carat yellow brown diamond ring, and the Aura Fancy Intense brown 1.40 carat round diamond ring.
Zosia Mamet, who was nominated for her ensemble role in The Flight Attendant, sparkled in Fred Leighton jewels, including the daintiest diamond drop earrings. The earrings were the perfect elegant pairing with her slick, bold Miu Miu gown featuring stone-encrusted straps.
The name of this season’s red carpet game is largely bright, bold colors, and Gillian Anderson’s look is no exception. The Crown star, and SAG Award recipient for her role as Margaret Thatcher in the series, paired a bright red gown with a sparkling diamond choker from Chopard.
The Dead to Me star was anything but at the SAG Awards, turning heads during the night in a short black gown, and a stunning Graziela Gems diamond-clad wrap ring—the ideal, edgy accessory to go with her short black Alexia Maria dress.
