The actress stunned the human being at the 2009 Academy Awards wearing 115-carat pear-form emerald drop earrings designed in a really basic setting by Lorraine Schwartz. “Angelina was exceptionally particular around wanting clean lines and a no-nonsense design,” defined the designer. These gargantuan and also gorgeous stones ignited a brand-new era for the gem that is still going strong.

Two years later she donned a dazzling pair of cluster emerald earrings by Lorraine Schwartz for her performance at Obama’s 2013 Inauguration. Taraji P. Henchild accepted the 2016 Best Actress Golden Globe for her duty as Cookie on Empire in a pair of Kimberly McDonald earrings collection via two cushion-cut Gemfields emeralds weighing a complete of 108-carats.
