The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Monday proved to be a spectacular night for jewelry—as the music world’s reigning queens and kings walked the red carpet and performed in fashions popping with ultra-bold jewels and gemstones.
Here are a few of our favorite—and most notable—jewelry looks from the big night:
Jennifer Lopez, who walked the red carpet in silver Versace with boyfriend (and former New York Yankee) Alex Rodriguez, sparkled in new diamond earrings from the 2018 Tiffany Blue Book collection (see above photo), four diamond and platinum bracelets, and three platinum and diamond rings.
Rita Ora wore an edgy sheer black dress by Jean Paul Gaultier accessorized by a black diamond choker, black diamond rings, and an intricate black diamond hand piece—all by Lorraine Schwartz.
Olivia Munn, clad in a purple David Koma sequined dress, wore a Kismet by Milka necklace and rings by Yeprem and Kavant & Sharart.
Cardi B wore a reported $4 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz Colombian emerald and spinel jewelry—with the standouts being those incredible emerald earrings—in addition to black diamond rings by Ofira Jewels.
Karlie Kloss paired a bold diamond bracelet by Sanjay Kasliwal and diamond earrings by Wempe Jewelers with her silver Elie Saab dress.
