Cate Blanchett made Golden Globes history Sunday night in more ways than one. In addition to winning her third Golden Globe award for her role as a troubled socialite in the Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine, the Australian actress also wore some of the first pieces of jewelry from Eco-Age’s Green Carpet Challenge, an initiative designed to raise ethical fashion’s profile on the red carpet. The laurel-shaped earrings, a collaboration with Chopard, feature 72 marquise-cut white diamonds set in 18-carat Fairmined white gold from small-scale community mines in South America.

“Cate Blanchett is both a fashion icon and a woman with an intuitive grasp of the issues that matter,” Livia Firth, founder of Eco-Age, says in a statement. “By choosing to wear Chopard jewels for the Golden Globes, she is supporting a profound and dynamic shift toward sustainable luxury that affects change right at the beginning of the supply chain among artisanal miners.”
