The 44th annual People’s Choice Awards, which was newly minted the E! People’s Choice Awards this year, lured an avalanche of big-name TV, film, and music industry stars to the cavernous Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., last night.
And while the performances felt outsized—John Legend sang a stripped-down version of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love),” and Rita Ora performed with a gaggle of male dancers—the evening’s jewelry offerings were largely sleek and chic, not over-the-top.
Of course, celebs still brought their diamonds (and their emeralds, too!). Here are our favorite jewelry looks from this year’s E! People’s Choice Awards:
Actress Danai Gurira, who won an award for Best Action Movie Star for her work in Black Panther, accessorized her fun Brock Collection dress with incredible Messika diamond jewelry: an open ring tipped with pear- and emerald-cut diamonds and a diamond-studded hoop earring anchoring a massive pear-cut diamond. Her stylist, Thomas Carter Phillips, detailed the jewels in another Instagram post (below).
The Messika jewels Danai Gurira wore to the awards.
Pom Klementieff, co-star of Avengers: Infinity War, wore gorgeous oval-shaped emerald earrings from Ana Khouri.
Rita Ora paired dazzling, diamond ear climbers with her bejeweled Versace dress; for her performance, she layered up the diamonds with a retro-feeling tiered necklace and blingy earrings (see photo at top).
Busy Philipps wore a multicolored gemstone and diamond necklace from Irene Neuwirth from her Botanical collection. No surprise there—Philipps is the face of the jewelry designer’s first-ever marketing campaign, which was recently released.
Scarlett Johansson donned fabulous, geometric gold-fringed earrings with her Versace jumpsuit and nabbed the prize for Female Movie Star of 2018 for her work in Avengers: Infinity War.
