Decked out in a red Vera Wang mermaid gown and illuminated by emeralds, rubies, sapphires and diamonds worth $7 million, the stunning Sofia Vergara generated the loudest buzz at Sunday night’s 2013 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
The Modern Family actress collaborated with celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz to create a Hollywood glam look that the paparazzi and TV cameras could not resist.
Dangling from her earlobes was an irresistible pair of platinum earrings designed in three progressively larger — and varying shape — segments, each trimmed in pavé diamonds. The smallest segment of each earring featured a round ruby, the next an oval sapphire, and the third, a pear-shaped Colombian emerald (a nod to Vergara’s native country). The total weight of the gemstones was 100 carats.
On her right hand was 40-carat Colombian emerald and rose-cut diamond ring, and on her left hand was a 21-carat Asscher-cut diamond ring.
Some celebrity sites assumed the diamond ring on her left hand was the engagement ring her fiancé, Nick Loeb, gave her last summer. But that assumption was wrong. Her engagement ring is reported to be a 7-carat cushion cut with accent diamonds flanking each side.
Although she didn’t win an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, life is still very good for the 41-year-old bride-to-be. Besides starring on a hit TV show, Vergara was recently named the highest-paid actress by Forbes magazine for the second year in a row.
