Actresses from around the globe swapped bold statement necklaces for simple but stylish diamond jewelry at the SAGs.

Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles were a more relaxed affair than last month's Golden Globes. Most stars put away the statement necklaces and played it safe in diamond jewelry: earrings and bracelets that were undeniably eye-catching and glamorous nevertheless.

Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress prize in diamond and spinel earrings from Louis Vuitton's high jewelry collection.

Alicia Vikander, who won Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl, looked heavenly in metallic sequins and high jewelry from Louis Vuitton. Her diamond and spinel drop earrings were a perfect match to her gown and enviably golden complexion.

Viola Davis, who took home the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in Shonda Rhimes' How to Get Away with Murder, also looked glowing. She paired an off-the-shoulder lavender Zac Posen gown with Buccellati jewelry, including a pair of diamond pendant earrings and a stack of the Italian jeweller's iconic textured cuffs.

Brie Larson added to her recent Golden Globes win with a SAG Award for Best Actress in a Movie for her role in Room. She chose diamonds in the form of chic drops and bracelets from Tiffany to accessorise her cornflower blue Atelier Versace gown.

Diane Lane wore Harry Kotlar diamond and emerald earrings worth $500,000.  
Diane Lane was chic in midnight-blue and cleverly chose contrasting yellow diamond and emerald drops from Harry Kotlar.

Red carpet pro Naomi Watts, by contrast, chose blue sapphires to go with her blue, floral-embellished Burberry gown. She once again wore Bulgari, pairing her high jewelry earrings and ring with a high-end watch from the Roman jeweller's Lvcea collection.

Joanne Froggatt of Downton Abbey went for blue jewels rather than a blue gown, pairing her red Burberry dress with delicate one-of-a-kind tanzanite earrings from Irene Neuwirth.

Double nominee Helen Mirren showed off her timeless beauty in a silver-sequined Jenny Packham and sparkling Harry Winston jewelry, which included an elegant swirl of diamonds in each ear.

Saiorse Ronan chose Forevermark winged diamond earrings to compliment her demure Michael Kors gown.  

Saiorse Ronan, nominated for her role in Brooklyn, was one of several stars who went for "pale and interesting". She wore a demure Michael Kors soft pink lace gown and equally pretty Forevermark diamond earrings.

Finally, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men gave us pale metallics with a retro glamour feel. She paired her pale golden Cristian Siriano gown with Butani diamond chandelier earrings, a tousled updo and kohled eyes. Her beloved character Joan would certainly approve.
