Some of the most eye-catching jewelry spotted last night at the MTV Video Music Awards was worn by the guys.
Music’s leading men came clad in ultra-chunky chains (see Diplo‘s and Tainy’s), outré earrings (see Lil Nas X’s long snake earring, below), and necklaces so hippie/bohemian, they could form their own commune (see Lenny Kravitz’s oversized circle pendant, above, and Shawn Mendes’ talismanic #neckmess).
Of course, women made their style mark with jewelry, too. Gigi Hadid wore a stack of very chic yellow gold chain Eli Halili necklaces; Taylor Swift wore a gorgeous set of Lorraine Schwartz emerald hoops (below); and Halsey donned some cool, dagger-like crosses, which swung not far below her rainbow hair roots, affecting a fun Rainbow Brite-goes-goth aesthetic.
Jewelry on the carpet was more often than not crafted in white metal, and often featured spikes or aggressive shapes. Hoop earrings were there, but they weren’t as ubiquitous as they’ve been in the recent past. Instead, the aforementioned hippie-boho necklaces—piled to the gills—were the jewelry du jour.
