Jennifer Lopez’s Morganite and Diamond Jewels Weren’t Just Stunning. They Were Symbolic

She wore special jewels to the 2024 Golden Globes.




I AM A HUGE fan of jewels with symbolism — pieces that have significance and meaning to the wearer, along with being stunning to see. So when Jennifer Lopez talked about the Boucheron hummingbird-inspired pink morganite and diamond Hopi collection earrings and ring she wore on the red carpet, it was refreshing to hear. She was also a vision in pink, which her stylists say is a favorite color. In the year of Barbie pink, it was a perfect choice. The bodice with roses evoked a sense of love. (She was there to support her husband, Ben Affleck, whose film Air was nominated for an award.)

But Lopez explained during the Entertainment Weekly/Variety streaming of the red carpet arrivals why she and her stylists choose the Boucheron jewels. Her upcoming album features a track called “Hummingbird,” and the two pear-shaped morganites, weighing 22 carats each, were held by diamond pave 3-D birds. The jewels coordinated with the 34-carat morganite on her finger, which also featured a Hopi hummingbird.
The significance of the jewels brought to mind the time in 2014 when Lupita Nyong’o received the Best Actress award and wore a Fred Leighton frog ring, which she described as her “family totem.” It also reminded me of one of Taylor Swift’s jewelry stories, when she asked Cathy Waterman to design her iconic Love ring with the word RED instead of LOVE in the center. Waterman was thrilled with the idea, as she considered Swift as part of her extended family. Swift was best friends with Waterman’s daughter, who originally gifted her Waterman’s Love ring on which the Red ring was based. The ring was ready in time for Swift to wear on the cover of the Red (Taylor’s Version) album. The ring has profound meanings — strength and empowerment of women, the love between friends, and how the past can be revisited but with a view toward a brighter future. Read full story here.

But Back to J.Lo. She looked glamorous and filled with excitement for the future. And finding jewels that were linked to an upcoming event was serendipitous.




Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
