The 56th Annual Grammy Awards were entertaining for many reasons: Beyonce and Jay Z’s duet, Taylor Swift’s reaction to the news that she lost the Album of the Year award to Daft Punk, Pharrell William’s Canadian Mountie hat, and, of course, the jewelry worn by stars to the affair. In fact, the jewelry selections on display that night were good—really good!
Pieces ranged from vintage platinum and gold Neil Lane numbers on Pink to colored stone drop earrings and rings from Ivy on Katy Perry. Style-wise, drop earrings—from somewhat conservative diamonds by Lorraine Schwartz on Taylor Swift to gemstone-encrusted Hula-Hoopesque stunners by Kimberly McDonald on Miranda Lambert—were abundant, as were massive precious stone rings. Beyonce wore $10 million of Lorraine Schwartz elongated diamond rings, while Madonna styled big initials on her glove-free hand; meanwhile, Rita Ora wore a beautiful blend of her own rings and some from Lorraine Schwartz.
Other looks from the night include ring-to-wrist pieces on Cyndi Lauper and Anna Faris, ear cuffs on Paula Patton and Sarah Hyland, and more colored stones on Alicia Keys, Kelly Osbourne, and Sara Bareilles.
