Judge the Jewels: Jeremy Allen White’s Best Golden Globes Jewel Was Hidden in His Pocket

The little ursine beauty is mid-century, 18K yellow gold, and features 3.24 carats of yellow sapphires, diamonds, and emerald eyes.




The sighting: Everyone was talking about the sheer shirt that actor Jeremy Allen White wore to the Golden Globes, where he won best actor for his tv show The Bear, but the real star of the outfit was hidden in the actor’s pocket for the majority of the evening.

The jewels: White’s secret pocket friend is a delightful vintage Van Cleef and Arpels bear brooch from Briony Raymond New York, an homage to the name of the actor’s award-winning show. The little ursine beauty is mid-century, 18K yellow gold, and features 3.24 carats of yellow sapphires, diamonds, and emerald eyes.

Why was it in his pocket, rather than visible? According to The Daily Mail, the actor wanted to carry the vintage bear with him as a hidden good luck charm.

The trends: Carrying a bejeweled VCA animal brooch in one’s pocket for moral support during important professional events is niche celebrity behavior that’s not likely to take off with the general public.

That said, animal motifs have been very popular in jewelry lately. It’s a very understandable trend: jewelry with a face is easier to bond with, and jewelry that you can imagine is a portable gem-covered friend is the most appealing of all.


What do we think? First of all, this is delightful. The little bear brooch is both gorgeous and adorable, and it makes me smile to see this gruff man holding it up so tenderly.

I don’t know if the brooch was originally presented to White as an option for his lapel or if White simply spotted the piece on his stylist’s tray and decided he needed this shiny bear to keep him company on his big night, but the entire thing is very whimsical and endearing.

Although I must admit: it would have looked good on his lapel, too.

Judgement: 12/10 for an adorably eccentric jewelry moment.

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.”
