Over The Rainbow: Jewelry Designers Are Making The Case For Colored Stones – ForbesLife By Barry Samaha. Contributor Style Editor
White diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but over recent seasons, other colorful stones are vying for that elusive mantle. Fine jewelry designers are definitely making the case for rubies, emeralds, tourmalines, opals and other gems that seem to always play second fiddle to what Marilyn Monroe sang about—and wore effortlessly—in Gentleman Prefer Blondes.

The Big List:
Who Wore What Jewelry to the 2013 Golden Globes
Jewelry Industry News, Trends and Analysis
By Jennifer Heebner, Senior Editor
Watching the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 13, was like attending a big party with dozens of guests from the fine jewelry industry. Thanks to Twitter handles, hashtags (#globejewelry), and E!’s live red carpet coverage (@ryanseacrest was a tad better this year in asking stars about their jewelry), colleagues and friends dished on who the stars were wearing, critiqued appearances, and generated such a virtual whirlwind that some participants were temporarily bounced from Twitter and #globejewelry was driven into the upper echelons of the coveted Trending Now domain.
Now that the giddy festivities have subsided and Globe winners have been revealed, it’s time to get back to work and reveal what readers really want to know: Exactly who did wear what, and what trends from the night really matter? I’ve compiled this “Who Wore What” List based on the stars who walked the red carpet, the jewelry styles and colors they wore, and the brand names of the jewelry houses who dressed them. At press time, this list was as comprehensive as possible based on the information available. Enjoy.
